Enjoyed staying in the spooky haunted hotel. My girlfriend swears she encountered ghostly presence that made her feel hot ;-). Learning about marta Becket and seeing a Ballet in the Opera house was an experience too, the art of her painting inside the opera house alone is worth the trip. The cafe is nice, there are hot springs and a casino near by. And we exited to LA by traversing Death Valley NP also right next door. It's a great place to visit for desert and western history lovers and will definitely be passing through again some time before i go.

Room tip: Read up on the most haunted rooms before you stay you may be able to specifically request one

It looks like an abandoned building but then you realize the hotel has guests. The moment you walk in you can feel the eerie feeling that you are not alone. The dinning room is a quaint place for a quick breakfast. The rooms look old but have a history. You have to visit!

Good place to stay if you would like to be close to the south entrance of Death Valley. Small but quaint rooms with just the basics (and A/C!). Very nice staff. No cell service with okay wifi. They will give you a free tour of the opera house and it is a must do! Solid place to stay for the price point.

The hotel is located miles from anywhere, which is exactly why I chose it. This historic hotel is a wonderful little gem that I will return to when I visit Death Valley again. And don't get me started about the vibe- opera house, ghosts and very attentive cats. However, this is not the Ritz and the rooms can vary (some small with little furniture besides a bed) and some larger. Some rooms have original art painted on the walls, some not. The bathrooms are useful but not that appealing. Few amenities exist and the rooms in a less cool (figuratively speaking) venue might be considered sub-par. But this is the Amargosa and I encourage you to embrace the experience. BTW-The staff is wonderful and a yummy cafe is open sometimes next door.

Room tip: Ask for what you need in a room, as each is different. Get one with a hand-painted mural if you can.

Amargosa hotel and the opera house were created with a passion for beauty, life, and with heart.Though Marta Becket is no longer with us her legacy lives on through this charming hotel and her friends’ stories of the origins and history of the hotel and opera house. We stayed in the haunted room 24 and the second time we were in room 9. The rooms we stayed in were clean and very spacious. The cafe was closed but they have everything you need in the hotel: toaster oven, toaster, microwave, fridge, ice machine, and fresh brewed coffee every morning in the common area. The best thing about this property are the people who care for it. They are more than just employees...they are historians, friends, and protectors of Marta’s dream. Michelle, who works at the front desk and gives tours of the opera house, is a warm and gracious hostess. She is happy to share her memories of Marta and has a lot of knowledge about the history about the origins of the property and such. She has become our friend and has helped us appreciate and love Amargosa even more so than before! Her mom also had many wonderful personal experiences with Marta and didn’t hesitate to share as well.
I could go on and on but I want you to garner your own amazing experiences at Amargosa. A few more notes: there are no tv’s in the rooms but a tv in the common area with a DVD player, there are board games a plenty too. If you seek something more in terms of entertainment, there is a casino about seven miles up the road. We spent our evenings either ghost hunting or star gazing. Amargosa Hotel and Opera House is a place everyone needs to visit and that we must help to preserve.
