we came here for one night and enjoyed it very much. It is a little dusty but the rooms are clean and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. We did not eat here but went to the casino down the road, that was not worth it. terrible food and bad karoke. We came back to our room and sat outside and...

Let me start by saying that 5/5 overstates the case a bit. A ranking of 4.5 or 4.75 would be closer to my actual ranking. The room was clean and comfortable but there are issues. The lack of cell phone and internet is a problem. The plumbing is antiquated to say the least. For desert activities the location is excellent....

We had tagged this as a must do on our drive from Furnace Creek to Las Vegas. So glad we stopped and had a tour of the Opera House (even if it looks closed ask at the hotel and they will organise a tour for $5 each). The story is fascinating and the interior of the Opera House is magnificent....

We recently visited Death Valley NP. We wanted a place close to the park but not in the park.The closest place was this hotel.The place had mixed reviews but we decided to go. Big mistake! The place was dirty , The room (#15) had a terrible smell at our arrival due to the overuse of desinfectant , We had to...

We stopped on our way to Death Valley, as most people do. Very glad we paid the $5 (or $10?) to get the short tour inside the Opera House. The interior is beautiful, and the history is intriguing. Well worth your time, expect maybe 30 minutes before you're back on the road.

You need to know what you're getting into when you go here....probably not everybody's cup of tea, but it was ours! This building is basically the whole town....there's nowhere to eat (casino 7 miles away with $4 martinis!!). It's an old building, old mexican style. The bedrooms are fixed up quite nicely, clean and comfortable, but very basic. There's no...

I travel to learn and to experience. We booked this place as a reasonably priced location to explore Death Valley from, unaware of its story and history. We were shocked, amazed and in awe of it after we learned about it. There's problems here, the free coffee served in the dining room would require someone there to make it. You're...

This place is memorable. We stayed here 2 nights. My daughter and I had to share the bed as we got the last room available for the night. The place Is a non profit and could use a good grant writer for restorations. The bed was OK and the room clean and had a very art Deco feel. The staff...

We stayed there in March, for a week. This was the second time we have stayed there. The rooms are quaint, and individual, each with its own charm. The restaurant, when it is open, has great food. Those days that the restaurant is not open, we ate at the casino just up the road. The staff, especially Michelle, went out...

what a welcoming view in the middle of nowhere - and "welcoming" also applies to the very charming michelle at the front desk! :-) i decided to prolongue my stay here for another night because this unique place offers the strangest, antique, sleepy desert coziness you can muster in the godforlornnothingness around the death valley. rooms are small and definitely...
