Nipton is a tiny tree-filled oasis in the vast Mojave Desert Preserve. An old railroad town that has one general store and one place to stay--and this is it. The rooms are very small, but that's what one would expect in a historic hotel. There is a large communal lounge, if you feel social. The five rooms share two bathrooms... More

The hotel has five rooms and we had booked them all for one night before our group of family and friends went our separate ways. This was my second stay at Nipton and again it went well. We all slept well (maybe the drink helped) and yes we did hear the trains but this just adds to the charm of... More

We were surprise and oh so pleased with the clean, efficient, nicely decorated room, the open lobby, and the fun, friendly hotel and restaurant folks. Rather than be bombarded with "fake things", here you get to experience the environment and surroundings of this desert lodging.

I stayed in both the hotel and the cabin during my visit. While I think both were a little pricey for what you get, it's the closet place I could find to Mojave preserve. The hotel rooms are just that, rooms with a bed. The bathrooms are shared but they are very clean. This is an old historic hotel in... More

I realise that some people can only stand to stay in a a Best Western/Holiday Inn etc and feel cheated if they don't get the use of a TV that is less than 6 months old. (The latter is not a problem here, because thyere are no TVs). But if you want interesting and historical this is the place. For... More

The only hotel in the 30 people town in the middle of Mojave. There is nothing around it for about 30 miles. Place is quiet and stars are close. Hotel lobby will make you feel like you are at your best friend's home. NOTE: Bathroom is shared, but that's hardly a problem considering there are two of them and only... More

My family stopped over in Nipton, California last week and stayed the night in one of the tent cabins. We loved everything about it, from the friendly staff at the Trading Post to the great cooking and unique Mexican dishes at the El Oasis Café next door to the spacious and well-kept tent cabins and shower/restroom facility sprinkled behind the...

Stayed the night here. Excellent facilities for those who like solitude, serenity and peace and quiet. Don't expect nightlife, there isn't even a TV and the cafe next door, the only place to buy dinner closes at 6pm. But the lovely old buildings and the solitude are wonderful, especially after Las Vegas. Service was excellent, anything we asked for was... More

Roxanne L, Owner at Hotel Nipton, responded to this review

Rob, Thank you for your positive review regarding Nipton. It is just what you said - quiet and peaceful! We are the antidote to Las Vegas. We hope you will come back soon. Nipton is located on the northern edge of the Mojave National Preserve - a million acre park. More

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
