Cute, quiet, convenient
This small motel is conveniently located about 2 hours from Las Vegas and 45 minutes from Furnace Creek Visitors Center, at the north end of Death Valley National Park. We loved the festive Christmas decorations inside and outside and I got a kick out of the wild burros in town. The bed was a bit soft, but the room was clean and the owner was helpful in regards to recommendations of places to visit nearby. She provides coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the office as well as oatmeal which is what we had for breakfast. Parking is on-site and convenient. There are a few restaurants and 2 bars in the little town, all are walking distance from this motel...be aware that all bars in NV allow smoking (gross). This motel is also close to Rhyolite Ghost Town and art installation.
If you're looking for someplace fancy or with a bunch of amenities this isn't the place for you...however if you're looking for an affordable and convenient place to eat and sleep near DVNP this little motel in Beatty should fit the bill.

Truly Unique Place for “Believers”
We stumbled upon the town of Beatty after a spectacular winter drive through Death Valley. My husband and I are not super Highway chain motel types so when we spotted the Atomic Inn with its Christmas lights, little green aliens and off the beaten path vibe, we felt welcomed. The friendly lady at the desk shouted “who are you and what do you want”. My husband was sold. He responded with “we come in peace” and she laughed heartily. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, cute little elephant towels and the wild burros came to call outside on the porch. Right on the road between Vegas and Area 51. If you are a “believer” stop on by.

Run while you can.
Read the reviews and the place sounded satisfactory for my needs. Arrived to walk into my room for find the hot water running full blast in the sink. Turned off and the faucet and the faucet slide in the fixture. Looked in the bathroom and found a welcome turd floating. Chairs in the room had disgusting stains as if someone urinated on them. So gross that I would not sit or put my clothes on them. Only heat was a space heater. Cob webs hanging from the lights and light cover missing and laying on a shelf in the room. Hole in bathroom door. No shower curtain. Carpet was lumpy. All this, yet the wash cloth was folded very cute in the shape of a small chick. No other rooms available in the area so I did stay, but I slept with my clothes on and my pants tucked into my socks. Would NEVER go back.

Sooo where do I begin, upon arriving I did what everyone does I looked up reviews! They we’re actually Pretty good, So We Decided to give it a go. We pretty much knew what we were getting into. So My expectations wasn’t high. The smell of the room was nasty 🤢 I sprayed my perfume every where! My husband poured a drink and sat on the rock hard bed. The bathroom toilet 🚽🤢wasn’t cleaned! There were cobwebs 🕸 every where. There was Literally a junk drawer!!!! I went and spoke to the lady a the desk which happened to be the owner of the property! She was so rude and didn’t want to hear any of it! All she said is that if you not happy your more then welcome to leave ugh 😑 I totally would have left, but my husband was already drinking and we couldn’t drive. Bottom line don’t stay here! The young man that was the house keeper was very nice! apologized for the dirty room and said it was Unacceptable! Definitely not worth 75.00

Old and a bit worn out
After spending all day in death Valley we look forward to our rooms at the Atomic Inn in Beatty. This is an older motel and could use some updating. Wow the rooms are spacious everything just looks old. The rooms are furnished with art deco style furniture, and the queen size bed was far from comfortable. The mattress was extremely soft and there was a board down the middle of the bed. It was difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in. If it hadn’t been for the fact that I was so exhausted I probably would’ve slept very little that night. The staff was friendly and the location convenient. If the price had been any higher it would not of been worth what was paid.
There are several lodgings to chose from and I would pick another one the next time I’m in Beatty.
