A bonfire, nighttime clouds clearing to reveal pockets of myriad bright stars unencumbered by Vegas lights. Clear, crisp air and muted desert contrasts broken by periodic vibratory charging and howling of diesel freights. A cozy small sharing hotel like out of the Twilight Zone western past, quiet now with the cattlemen, stages and celebrities gone. Wonderful couple running the cafe,...

I really struggled with how many stars to give this hotel....two, three or four....depends so much on what aspect you are talking about. On paper it doesn't sound too inviting: nothing bigger than a full bed (we had two twins), shared bathrooms (we were alone in the building so no problem), busy train tracks just 30 yards from the hotel,...

Stayed 2 nights at the Nipton Hotel in Nipton, CA! 8 ish miles east of the 15 frwy. ( off at Nipton exit ) Around 100 years old, the quaint old town is owned by a one family... FUN FACT : it's the only town in America that is 100% self powered! Now if you're a light sleeper this place...

I was travelling from I-15 to Searchlight NV and found this extraordinary little hotel. Out in the middle of nowhere, it is truly a step back into time when things were simpler. It is a funny thing that so many people complain about no phone, no TV, etc...This is the exact reason I found this place so inviting. It was...

I am very grateful to the hotel staff for being kind enough to ship to me a very important item that I left behind. I would've had to have driven back 200 miles to get it, and they saved me a lot of trouble by being so helpful.

The Hotel Nipton is a historic landmark just north of the Mojave National Nature Preserve. Movie stars, government officials, and all sorts of other interesting people have been staying there since the 1930's. The hotel has approximately 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living room/communal area. The rooms are very small but clean. The bathrooms were also clean, but...

We we're looking for a good, alternative place to stay and booked two nights in one of Nipton's eco-lodges. The owners were welcoming, the view from the lodge was gorgeous, and Nipton is simply ideally located for exploration of the Mojave Desert. The lodge has basic features including an electric heater, beds, chairs & table, and a wood-fired stove for...

The Nipton Hotel was the perfect relaxing retreat during our cross country road trip in October 2011. Nipton is a charming little old mining town located on the edge of the Mojave Desert Preserve. The hotel itself is a well preserved piece of the Old West. The bedroom we stayed in was simply decorated with nice antiques, and the hotel...

If you love trains, you must stay there. You can sit infront of the hotel and wait for the next Union Pacific train. If you want something without trains (even at night) just go to another place, this is not for you.

Nipton is a rail road crossing out in nothing really, with a store, a hotel, a closed restaurant and some residential buildings. Nipton itself is a magical place, sitting on the porch watching the trains go by and honk their horns (keep this in mind) was great. I really liked Nipton as a place, but the hotel is not worth...
