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

After driving by for many years, I finally got the courage to stay the night.. and I'M GLAD I DID!!. I have seen the documentary about Marta called "Amargosa", So I kinda knew what I was in for. Yes, the place is old and run-down - BUT, the room was clean (#22) and had incredible hand-painted murals on the walls... More

My advice: Call ahead! If you are considering a stay at the Amargosa, and you're in need of special services (like a refrigerator for medications, or a special diet from the cafe), let the staff know! Again, I have not been to the Amargosa for quite a few years, but know this: the DESERT location is ISOLATED, and the buildings/rooms,... More

We arrived at 16.15 hours in the afternoon, check in is from 3 p.m. There was no one there! Only an envelope with our name on it and a key of room 20...... After searching the private propertie a guy Jessy who lives with the 90 year old owner Martha, showed up. He told us no one could come because... More

It cannot be denied that the hotel is old, and the decoration not suited to all tastes. But to be fair, it is still pretty decent. We did not suffer from smell or noise described in other reviews. The room was clean, maybe be not shiny perfect clean, but good enough (and cleanliness IS important to me). Main thing is,... More

I have stayed at the hotel on two occasions and am sad to leave each time I go. I discovered Martha online and went out last year to see her glorious creation. I came back again this year and was just as delighted as I was the first time. You must see the opera house and spend time speaking to... More
