Had lunch here - isolated outpost on train tracks facing the Mohave desert - worth the drive then take road to Searchlight and back to Hoover dam to really experience the desert. Very quirky place but if you want to get away from the beaten track this i the road less travelled!

This remote, quirky old-time hotel in the middle of the Mojave Desert is not for everyone. In the 1920s when the place opened, it was practically the Waldorf-Astoria of lodgings in this part of The West. By the 1980s it was an established B & B with a small but enthusiastic following for those wanting to recapture the romance of... More

Stayed at the Nipton hotel over the weekend. It is very simple but does have wifi if you want it. I enjoyed it but only gave it four stars because the room smelled like grandma's closet....lots of moth balls. It did air out but was a bit of a surprise. Yes, there was train noise at night, they do give... More

I'm posting here because Trip Advisor doesn't have a separate listing for the Eco-Cabins, though as the owner recently noted, they should. No one was staying at the hotel when we were there. We stayed in one of the ecocabins/tents in midsummer (106 degrees in late afternoon), so the air conditioning was appealing. This is a tough location to rate... More

Its an experience. This hotel is very simple, but Iliked it a lot. I didn't mind the trains. Ist was romantic and kind of wild western style. If you like to spend the night in an unusual enviroment and feel like on vacation in the past, this might be the right choice for you.

I stayed in a "tent cabin", behind the convenience/gift/lottery/beer store that's the only place open in this true ghost town. Don't believe the hype on their web page: there is not a soul around; the cafe is closed; and there were cockroaches in my cabin (I ended up erecting my tent inside the cabin and going to sleep protected). All... More

This person DID NOT stay in Hotel Nipton. This review has nothing to do with HOTEL NIPTON. This person through his own admission stayed in the campground which is a totally different than Hotel Nipton. Trip Advisor should not be posting this review because the reviewer did not stay in Hotel Nipton. Sir, we are sorry you had a difficult... More

We've stayed at the Nipton "Hotel" (really a rooming house with a common area and shared washroom/shower rooms) on 5 separate occasions. First of all, you should be a train buff. The Union Pacific will come through at least 4 or 5 times during your one night stay. If you can't appreciate the romance of the rails passing right by... More

Thank you so much for giving Bill a shout out. We miss him. We also want to thank you for your continued patronage. Hotel Nipton (it's original name) has been in Nipton since 1904 and yes, as you stated, it isn't for everyone. People that appreciate the remoteness and the beauty of the Mojave - the quietness and solitude -... More

Stayed with friends at this extraordinary little hotel just North of Mojave National Nature Preserve. This historic landmark is a wonderful destination for a relaxing retreat where you can enjoy the wide open spaces and views. Enjoyed the warm and inviting atmosphere at the restaurant making you want to linger after a satisfying meal. You can sit on the porch... More

A bonfire, nighttime clouds clearing to reveal pockets of myriad bright stars unencumbered by Vegas lights. Clear, crisp air and muted desert contrasts broken by periodic vibratory charging and howling of diesel freights. A cozy small sharing hotel like out of the Twilight Zone western past, quiet now with the cattlemen, stages and celebrities gone. Wonderful couple running the cafe,... More
