This place is run down and dingy. The opera house was closed and opens only on certain occasions. That being said, it is worth a stop as it is a unique place. Somebody fulfilled their dreams here. And now they have returned to the dust and cobwebs.

Found this place on Tripadvisor and was unsure based on the reviews. It is very basic: no TV or fridge, no breakfast. The adjacent cafe is open for breakfast & lunch certain days. But it is a unique property in a historic building, has wifi, and comfertable beds. It is MUCH cheaer than the lodging in Death Valley park. Did not see any ghosts, but they have 2 cats.

It is not a mirage.

Driving from Las Vegas to Death Valley you will come upon a highway intersection with an adobe filling station and hotel. Attached to the hotel is the Opera House. WHAT? This attraction was begun by an ballet dancer from the East coast who had a flat and while waiting for it to be fixed saw the derelict opera house. She bought the property and spent the rest of her life painting the interior (just this is worth the visit) and opening the venue for cultural events. Currently it is hosts local bands on a regular basis. The hotel is rustic but worth the adventure.

We picked the Amargosa because it was the closest place to Death Valley. The Hotel is run by volunteers who are doing their best to keep it open. It has a very interesting back story (be sure to get a tour of the Opera House). The rooms are dated, doors are warped, floor is a bit unlevel in places, original plumbing makes taking a shwer challenging, staff leaves from 8pm until 8am, but all that adds to the quirky atmosphere of the place. It has a large common area with tables, chairs, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator for guests' use, books, games and two cats. The Amergosa Cafe is a great place for breakfast or lunch, but keep in mind that it is only open 4 days a week. The next closest town is Shoshone about 30 minutes away. If we ever returned to the area, would I stay there again? I think I would!

We spent one night at this unique property and enjoyed the experience very much. The location was the perfect place to stay before heading into Death Valley the next day. The room was small but had everything we needed and we found the bed very comfortable. Don't miss going on a tour of the Opera House, it really helps explain the history of the property and the paintings are impressive! The tour guide (who also checked us in to the hotel) was very friendly and made us feel most welcome. We had a delicious breakfast in the cafe, but be aware it is not open every day.
