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.
