The Amargosa Opera House and hotel is more of a historical site than anything else. The place celebrates the life and art of Marta Becket who was the owner and sole performer. She left New York in 1967 and settled in Death Valley Junction with her husband. She converted an old social hall into the Amargosa Opera House and she...

You need to want to go to this motel to enjoy it. If you are expecting 5 star hotel amenities, don't go. This is a 1925 historic property, and that's exactly how it feels. A tour of the Opera House is a must. There is only breakfast and lunch on Thursday-Sunday, and no restaurant close by, so you need to...

I cannot for the life of me imagine HOW anyone can give this place a good review. Time has not been kind and the owners have not even fixed anything, much less updated. The tiles in the bathroom are falling off the walls and are actually unsafe. The carpeting is filthy and smells. The lightfixtures are light bulbs hanging from...

Set aside almost everything you expect from a modern hotel and step in the time machine. Everything in the hotel is old, almost no facilities but the room is clean and the bedsheets fresh. Get op early and see the sun come up over this unique building and environment. Expect a steamtrain or a cowboy to come around the corner...

Marta just died a few weeks ago, so her past care givers are proving the tour. If your group is small enough, and you ask nosy questions, you might learn some fun history about her. We had a really great time and immensely enjoyed the history of this wonderful cat-loving ballerina. We wish we had seen her perform. Quite the...

This property is terribly neglected. No paint or repairs evident and much is in need. Walking down the hallway you will sink up and down on the old boards under the worn carpet. A lot. No sound insulation. No WiFi in rooms, just a bit in the lobby. Truly a place to avoid. However, it does have an opera house...

The Amargosa Opera house offers a unique opportunity to stay in historic hotel in a ghost town. I believe there are ghost that also live in the hotel as well. This place IS in a ghost town--there are ZERO amenities in the town--there is no gas station and no restaurant and you will need to travel at least 30 minutes...

If you've read other reviews, you know this hotel is not for everyone. It's like staying in a museum. We loved it and are so gratefui to the people who have preserved this experience. The staff was wonderful about sharing the hotel's history with us: Before Marta Becket converted it, it was a hotel for visiting borax mining executives; an...

This hotel is very old and run down but has unique flavor. It was like going back in time when hotel guest gathered in the lobby and socialized. It has no cell service, landline nor tv. We were forced to the lobby for wi-fi. In front of a fire in the fireplace we were forced to meet some interesting people...
