My Wife, Daughter (just turned 13) and I enjoyed a great night at the Mizpah hotel in Tonopah, NV. We arrived after a long day of searching out Ghost Towns (which my wife called the death march) we arrived just before Sunset at the Mizpah. It was built in the early 1900's and when built was the highest building in Nevada. Recently purchased and renovated, the hotel has to be the finest hotel between Reno and Las Vegas. I loved the old feel of the building, but everything that needed to work functioned well.
Several rooms have some history and that history was celebrated in small plaques outside the room. Ours belonged to a boxing promoter, my favorite was the room on the 5th floor where "The Lady in Red" was murdered by a jealous lover/client (yes, she was a professional). My wife and I played up all the stories to our 13 YO, who heard creeks, said lights turned off and on on their own, and became friends with the ghost in our room. I do have to admit that our dog (yes, the hotel is very dog friendly to the point of supplying Doggie goodie bags at check in) woke me up in the middle of the night whimpering and acting like she had just seen a ghost, but that is for another trip I guess.
We ate dinner there, food was good, and since the current owners are from Napa there was a good selection of their wine. The beer was cold, what's not to like?
Only issue we had was our room was right next to the Hotel Sign. For a moment I felt like Kramer in the Seinfeld episode where the chicken place moved in next door, but the curtains blocked enough light so I could sleep and my wife wore her mask so she was fine. Just saying you may want to check that if you end up on the 2nd floor.
Service was good, great bar, beautiful hotel, I look forward to visiting again.
