If you want to experience vintage, experience history, this would be the right place. It could look deserted and empty but as we all know, you are in Death valley national park. What else could you have expected? It was one of those places where I wanted to experience vintage and old collection and this is certainly one of them.... More

Please don't think you will be staying at the Ritz if you stay here - you are not! You are however staying in one of the most desolate places on earth and part of someone's dream - the lady who rescued the building and built an opera house here in Death Valley. You either "get" this place, warts and ghosts... More

The hotel is not the best, let's leave it there and proceed immediately to the Opera House. The story of Marta Beckett and her life's commitment to creating an Opera House in this desolate part of the World is a fantastic story. She personally painted the murals on the walls and created her audience so she could perform to her... More

When my husband and I pulled into the parking lot we thought the place was abandoned. The walls of the building are peeling and there appeared to be only one truck parked. My first reaction was, "You've got to be kidding." After driving almost 4 hours and in the middle of no man's land we decided we have no other... More

If you're having an adventure, this might be the hotel for you. We stayed here on our way to Death Valley, coming from Las Vegas. Let me state, there is nothing in this area. Not many places to eat. You best do yourself a favor and fill up everything before arriving. Bring snacks to last you through the night. When... More

Very good option if you want to expore the east side of Death Valley National Park. Rooms are clean and simple. Shower not great but for 1 night it is ok. Have diner at Casino Longstreet Inn. Good burgers for normal prices. Typical American setting.

We visited, intending to stay the night but rapidly changed our minds. We paid the $5 to view the opera house where we were both bitten by mozzies. The whole place looked flea bitten & grotty though clearly full of its own self importance...not supported by a Google search!!! Not worth the very long drive!

The lady who owns this Opera House bought it in the 1960's and did all the artwork inside it. She has been performing one woman shows here since taking over the place. There isn't much at Death Valley Junction. There's the old railroad depot which has no rails running to it anymore. There's the hotel and the opera house. I... More

This is an interesting place to stop in and see as a quirky place. However, as a hotel it is crumbling and uncomfortable. The property is in such poor condition that I can't believe it it can continue to operate much longer. Paint is pealing off of walls everywhere. Tile in the bathroom is cracked or missing. The kitchen area... More

This hotel was built between 1922 and 1925 as a railroad hotel. The railroad is gone but the horel delightfully continues on. There are no telephones, television, or wifi in the rooms, The bathrooms are functional but 1925 vintage. One can go to the lobby and use the wifi. This is a great experience because one can meet and talk... More
