“Fair Motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We stayed on night on a trip to Death Valley. There is little around. Very few restaurants. Motel is said to have upgraded. To the 1950's? Probably try to fin another place to stay if I returned to this area which I won't.

As their website shows this is a SciFi themed motel. Its really quite charming.
How many chain hotels do you want sleep in during your trip through life anyway?

Also the town is also charming and the merchants super friendly. Takes Trio back in time when things weren't ranch and strangers were polite.

This isn't a flashy hotel or a chain motel, so you're not going to get lots of 5star extras. Provided you're OK with that, you might just love this place like we did when we stayed here for 2 nights in August. The town of Beatty is like something from a road movie - mountains at the end of the street, Area 51 just down the road, a night sky with a million stars, a Dennys with a lovely wise-cracking waitress, a Chamber of Commerce that looks like a bus shelter, donkeys roaming the town centre, Death Valley a few miles away, and most bizarre of all, a brothel with its own airfield just outside of town. The Atomic is near the edge of town but it's still only 2 minutes walk to the main crossroads. And the people are the friendliest and most laid-back you could hope to meet. So, full marks for the warm welcome, the peaceful setting ('quiet backwater' doesn't do it justice) and the convenient location. The drawbacks are the unambitious breakfast, the rather old fashioned furniture and decor, and the lack of amenities like swimming pool and outside seating area.

Would stay again. Its central location made it perfect for us we could walk to all resturants in town. Also the local casino. Being gateway to Death Valley made going there easy for us. Looking forward to going back this spring to stay there again on our next trip to Death Valley. Location, location, location.

The newly-refurbished rooms are more than adequate, although ours did have a few flaws: a stain on the chair, no rack for wet bath towels (we used the doors on the armoire), and connecting to the Wi-Fi took some figuring-out. We were first given one of the older rooms with an air conditioner that produced only slightly cool air (It was over 100 degrees during the day), a fan in the bathroom that sounded like it was about to break, threadbare carpet, drapes that did not completely cover the window, and dark paneled walls that made the room seem like a cave. We were switched to a newer room. If not for this, I would have welcomed an alien abduction to escape the depressing and unacceptable environment!

Room Tip: The rooms in front near the street have been updated.

We stayed here for one night on our way to vegas. The bed sheets were covered in dog hair. Air con worked fine. The television had poor signal, so was flickering. The wifi was non existant - receptionist had no idea why the password she gave us was wrong. The room was £40ish for the night we stayed.

As the title suggest it was suitable for an over night stay but may have been less so fo a longer stay. It was er hot an the aircon was not all that efficient so it was a bit uncomfortable a night tho it had been over 110 degs during the day. Breakfast was basic and the coffee was on tap. All in all wort a stay just for the look of the place.

Room Tip: Try and get one on the road it's quite enough and the look good
