My wife Jessica and I recently stayed at the Amargosa Opera House and Hotel over the 2015 Valentine's Day weekend. I have to say this is probably the most unique hotel in the entire western United States. The ambiance was amazing, the staff friendly, courteous, and competent, and the history of the surrounding area utterly fascinating. Not to mention how... More

You have to have an unusual set of circumstances to want to spend the night in the desert ghost town of Amargosa. Perhaps you're here just because you are an adventurer? Perhaps you're just finding this is the point wise to stop for the day. This is Americana at it's finest. It's rich in history, and as you look around... More

This was an interesting find. It is manned by a local who has a plethora if information about the area. You enter through a small lobby which is furnished with period furniture and other period pieces. There two very small museums each housing men's and women's period clothing. There is a small gift shop offering souvenirs and a collection of... More

I find it hard to believe anyone gave this hotel a favorable review. As soon as we got out of the car out front we were hit by a sewage-y smell. This smell permeated the entire hotel. The carpet down the hallway was stained and cut, the toilet barely flushed, the decor may have been an attempt at "quaint" but... More

Long story short, you do NOT want to do business with these people! Made a reservation by phone from Death Valley National Park then had an unforeseeable change of plans and called Armagosa back within 10-15 minutes to cancel. They would not issue a refund as they have a 24 hour policy. Within 10-15 minutes? Could or would not allow... More

Other reviewers have commented on the lack of anything but the basics. Still, the night passed uneventfully and the soft mattresses had a cottage-like comfort. Guests in need of a meal are directed to the Longstreet Casino seven miles up the road. There are model railroad hobbyists next door working on a replica of Death Valley Junction in the good...

This is a very old rustic place ( from both inside and outside). Do not expect any modern amenities. No coffee maker, fridge, microwave in the room. Even there is no central room heater. Electricity is not at all reliable. It will go off if any guest in the hotel plugs in literally "anything". Restrooms have a somewhat bad stink.... More

Its a lovely hotel but don't expect the luxury of Vegas. Conveniently located at Death Valley Junction. A very good option to stay before starting for Death Valley National Park. Enjoy the sunset and sunrise. We particularly made a point to stay here after reading about all the haunting's ( esp room 24,32 and 9 ), but couldn't find anything... More
