This was our second stay in Nipton, but our first stay in the hotel. The hotel absolutely has room for improvement, especially the bathrooms. Besides being in need of a refresh, the shower experience was awful. We let the water run for at least 5 minutes but it never got above luke warm. I skipped washing my hair because I was freezing. We were also a little disappointed to find no cups in our room or common area. We were ok not having ice (unsure where that may have been, and everything was closed), but cups are fairly basic. Rooms very small and beds not terribly comfortable. Also could use new bedding. Positives were definitely the common area to lounge in, and of course everything outside to explore. The artwork is amazing. And the Trading Post is really cool. Even if you are just planning on driving through the area, I'd suggest stopping at the Trading Post. Can't comment on the Saloon bc it was closed. The train only went by once while we were there. Bonus! I was going to give a lower rating, but overall we do really appreciate the unique nature of this place. We noticed they've done some renovations to their cabins, and they seem to be building new tipis. If rustic is your thing, you need to check this place out. I really hope they can spiffy up the hotel though. It could be quite something. The history is neat.

Lived up to expectations and more. The remoteness and beauty were everything I was looking for. I work for a railroad, so am bemused at anyone’s complaints about train traffic - you’re right by the tracks, and it’s not as if you aren’t warned! Staff was extremely helpful with checking in and info; the trading post is a super nice touch,and, although I don’t see a TripAdvisor entry for The Whistle Stop, I give TOP ratings to my truffle burger, the local craft beer on tap, and, most of all, to the sole employee at work who worked like the dickens to accommodate the “large” dinner hour crowd of 15-20 who all hit the place simultaneously. I hope that none of them complained about their wait under the circumstances; mine was more than worth the wait. Nipton is enormously appealing to the right mindset; I would love to return from the east coast someday with a week to spend in the Mojave Preserve, with Nipton as home base.

I stayed here while completing my Fallout New Vegas tour. It is a must. Beautiful, quiet, and perfect place to take in the sights of one of the most iconic places in the game. I can't wait to come back!

If you are looking for the Ritz or maybe even a Motel 6, move on down the road, because that is not the experience you will find at Nipton. Nipton is a tiny 'oasis in the desert' on the north part of the Mohave Preserve, so you will be surrounded by desert. Nipton was founded in 1905, and the hotel was built then, too. It is very small - they have a general store, the hotels and a small restaurant that serves great burgers. Not everyone will appreciate Nipton, and the last time I checked, Nipton really is bothered about being accepted by everyone, because it's been around long before this generation has, and it will be around long afterwards. If you are looking for peace and quiet, a place to connect with nature, beautiful views with beautiful sunsets, along with the wistful cry of a train whistle, whenever the trains come through the town, a few times a day, then you'll love this place. It's a place to come and to listen to the land - if you listen with an open mind, you'll find this area 'talks', in a good way. They have a slew of teepees that you can rent, plus eco lodges, camping and the hotel. The hotel is simple, with five rooms or so, and a couple of communal bathrooms, both with showers, very close to the rooms. The rooms are small, but have very nice touches. My bed was comfortable, there was a Himalayan salt lamp, sitting on the bedsite table, plus a regular uplight lamp. They provide you with clean towels and washcloths, two bottles of water, ear plugs (for those who don't want to be awakened by the train), soap and shampoo - very nice touches. There is no TV in your room at the hotel. The Whistle Stop Cafe serves up good food - I had a cheeseburger, and it was huge! The french fries are beer-battled and awesome. They have a cool general store there that has provisions, snacks, alcohol, drinks and souvenirs. There's a guy there called "Jim", who is very welcoming and friendly, and he'll talk to you like a real human. There are other cool things, like outside art structures and cool cars to check out. Nipton is not for everyone, but if you like peace and quiet, and simple existing, this is the place to be. There is no where else like it in the world, and it's my favorite place.
