Reviewed March 1, 2012

When you are driving in this part of NE Nevada, you know you are seeing much history, but there isn't anything quite as wonderful as this wonderfully maintained elegant hisoric hotel. The Mizpah was built in 1907 and from the minute you enter you are transported a century ago.
I had the pleasure of having dinner in their well-maintained dining room The service was excellent, the food excellent and the wine list impressive and reasonable in price. We were unable to actually stay at the hotel as the hotel has a no pet policy and we were travelling "with cat." Interestingly enough our dining neighbours were fellow Canadians returning to British Columbia from Palm Desert. They indeed were staying at the hotel and added their enthusiasm for the historic elegance the hotel maintained while providing all the modern amenities one expects in modern hotels. All in hotel a unique experience in this little down that is an easy drive to the wonders of Death Valley.

Room Tip: As I indicated we did not actually sleep at the hotel, rather viewed the entire premises (including...

Tonopah was our destination for a fun, weekend desert trip. We visited some of the historical mining locations around the area and geocached in the Rachel/Area 51 region. The Mizpah is truly a gem in this area. The staff were very friendly, the inside of the hotel is 1900's elegant and in pristine condition. The beds were fantastic and comfortable after each long day tromping around in the desert.

While on sabbatical for 30 days I was driving thru central Nevada, The snow was really flying and I needed to get some rest, I found this special place in the town of tonopaha ,
The rooms are so nice,the staff is great.I do not drink but the bar looked nice as well.
At the pittman i noticed they didn't have any vegetarian meals so I ask to speak to the chef
He came out and spoke to me about my needs (mostly tofu and vegetables ) and said he would give it his best try,Very nice young man a bit heavy set with a cane that i thought was interesting.
When my meal came out it was wonderful, he made me a tofu and vegetable dish that was the best i have ever had. I asked him why tofu was not on the menu,he said that they didn't have tofu in the kitchen,when I asked him were he acquired it he told me he went down to the local store and bought it. I am very impressed by the way all of the staff treated me.
thank you

Suprisingly quiet. Neat bar and lobby with no smoking and no slots, so you can eat at the bar if you wish.
Limited menu in cafe, but food quite good. The Jack Dempsey romm is very pricey, but the food is also good - they need some less expensive alternatives.items.

Look at the old buildings in town, the headframes and museums

We just got back from The Mizpah Hotel in Tonapah and I have to say the place is beautiful! From the restaurant, bar, staff, rooms and mysterious hallways, the place was for more elegant than I expected! If you are within a two hour driving distance, the stay would be worth it for overnight. The town is very quiet but the local used book store is fun and the self guided mining tour was worth it and FREE. Speaking of free....we had breakfast in the Cafe this morning and if you stay the night, they practically give you the whole bill for free!! Overall, it should be at least a visit for a drink if you are passing through. The food is affordable too with a nice atmosphere. Have fun!!!!!!

Room Tip: Room 301 is huge! Good for a family. Other rooms are smaller and room 503 is said to be haunted by...

I was delighted with my stay at the Mizpah 7-9 Feb 2012. The historic hotel's restoration was tasteful and according to the period (early 1900's). I felt like I stepped back in time with the exception of having all the amenities of a current 4 star hotel. The hotel and restaurant serves was polite and timely. I plan on staying at the Mitzpah on all future Tonopah trips.
