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

This is a difficult review in that the hotel gets five stars for unique character one of a kind and worth a stay to experience a one of a kind hotel stay. This is our forth stay in approx. ten years - yes we will stay again. Now for the review as a review for a hotel stay this must... 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

If you're a history buff and would like to explore this place, then I DO recommend it. But do NOT spend the night in the rooms if you're desiring at least a motel-6 level of comfort -- you won't get that here! Stop by during the day, read the articles and clippings displayed; tour the opera house; view the hand-painted... More

I drove up from Las Vegas to get a break from the hustle and bustle of the casino that I work at. The rooms are less than modest, but clean and quiet. No TV, no phone reception, but there is free wifi in the lobby. There was a strong odor of sewage in the hallway. The opera house and the... More

we stayed with our four children for one night. Whilst the hotel's facilities are modest the opera house is unmissable and the story of Marta Becket and her commitment to her arts is very moving. The buildings have an incredible history and the staff couldn't be more helpful and interesting. We had clean rooms with fabulous murals. If you are... More

The hotel is not for everyone. It is in the middle of a ghost town (nearest habitation is 7 miles away). The hotel and Opera House have a rich history which is very interesting. However, as a stop-over you do need to be prepared. We arrived at 3:00pm, the room keys were taped to the locked front door of the... More
