If you are expecting 5 star luxury this is not for you. However if you love a good story and have an interest in opera, theatre and art don’t miss it. Read the history and book a visit - you will not regret it. Also...More

I learned about this place several years ago, and I finally had the opportunity to see it for myself, as well as stay in the hotel (which is really more like a motel). The rooms are straight out of the forties or fifties, but it...More

We adored staying at this historic hotel and touring the unique opera house and hearing the fascinating history of the place. The location was excellent for touring Death Valley and the service was also wonderful!

About
Description
The complex which houses the Amargosa Hotel, Opera House and Café was built in 1924 by the Pacific Coast Borax Company. The town of Death Valley Junction was established in 1907 with the T & T Railway line, which More carried Borax from the area to southern California. By 1940, the last train had run through the area and the building passed through several owners. In 1967, Marta Becket, a ballet dancer from New York City, moved to the town and transformed the social hall into the Amargosa Opera House, taking 6 years to paint the walls and ceiling with a renaissance audience. We have daily tours and performances from October through May. The town of Death Valley Junction is a non-profit organization. Our mission is to continue the artistic legacy of Marta Becket and the historic town of DVJ. We are working on restoration of the adobe buildings and hope you enjoy your stay in our remote desert location. Less
