“Average Place, Above Average Front Desk Staff”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I actually wasn't even considering to stay at this place as I was expecting to drive through it from Vegas on my way to death valley, but I had to stop in the middle of the night, the front desk staff that greeted us was quite nice and she helped us get into a room fast! As far as the room goes it was pretty average, really nothing good or bad about it. the room was what it was. The average room, combined with the awesome front desk staff makes it equal out to about 4/5. I wish the directions to the front desk was labeled a little better. I walked by it twice not realizing what it was. The bed was good though, I slept like a baby.

Our main purpose was to visit Death Valley National Park and this place suited our needs. I would rate it a good value for money (4/5) given it's location (1 hour from the Death Valley Park Entrance). The hotel is about an hour drive from Las Vegas. Pahrump itself is a pretty decent town with a lot of restaurants.

The room was pretty clean (3/5), we found a little silver fish on the second queen bed and the shower was not all that clean. But again, we paid around $75 a night and this was by the best accommodation we could find.

The staff were very helpful and very responsive to all our needs.

Note that they don't have a pool or a fitness center.

You will have a comfortable room for a very good price at a driving distance to Death Valley. Unfortunately the facility is quite old and worn out - do not look for luxury. To reach the registration desk you will need a gas mask, as it is located in the smoking casino area.

Room Tip: good value

Stayed 2 nights as a stop over visiting Death Valley. Its a small hotel/casino, very easy to maneuver, Room was clean, enjoyed the fluffy pillows, no tub, has coffee maker and mini fridge.
Had a person above us who was quite loud one night but the next night it was completely quiet. Since the hotel is so small we brought up our own luggage, no problem. All the staff was friendly and helpful especially in the Harvest Café where the food was ok. The next night we ate at the 2 for one buffet, glad we didn't pay full price. Food wasn't prepared well and not many choices, we were laughing because we had trouble cutting the prime rib. The casino is super smokey.
We were looking for a hotel/casino with a short drive to Death Valley and this was it.

Stayed in Pahrumph at the Nugget because of proximity to Death Valley.
Very disapointed- carpeting was filthy. Window had homemade screen
with gaps that allowed flies free entry.

The staff was friendly. The buffet so-so, I happen to like tamales and refried beans. I ate well, my passengers suffered the next day.

Paid as much for one night as a Strip Casino,

If you DO go to Death Valley- Start at the South end and drive North = avoids sun in the eyes all day. The Shoshone village and museum is worth a stop. Buy gems by the ound across the street. $6 a pound for Desert Roses!

Room Tip: Buy gas in Pahrumph before hitting Death Valley- start at south end of valley. Stop at Furnace Creek...

Not much to chose from in Pahrump. Heard the Best Western was marginal so tried the Nugget. Room was extremely dated but very clean. Although we where on the non smoking floor, the ground floor.... had to stuff tiles under the door at night to prevent smoke odor from getting under the door.

It's an old motel....... glad we where not there on the weekend and glad everyone went to bed early. Any weekend partying........ and it would have been very noisy.

Room Tip: Not sure it would matter!!!
