An unforgettable experience that deserves to be done once in life is surely to spend almost one night at the Amargosa Opera House & Hotel.
Located in a really small town named Death Valley Junction, close to the Death Valley National Park.
It’s been amazing...More
I read many of the reviews. They were clear that the hotel is historic and one of a kind. That really appeals to me. The reviews also stated that the hotel is terrifically run down. That normally doesn't bother me. My husband has much higher...More
OK, so first off, if you're a finicky traveler who can't cope with things, go pay hundreds of dollars more per night and stay at whatever they're calling the Furnace Creek Inn now. But if you love the desert and old fashioned travel, a cultural...More
I read other TripAdvisor reviews and decided to give this place a chance. What a mistake. First of all, for the price I paid, this was definitely not worth it. You are still 30 miles from the Visitor's Center at Death Valley National Park and...More
If you need a moderate to high level of service, please keep driving until you get to Death Valley or Las Vegas. If you're interested in history, art and one individual's profound vision, this is a place to spend some time. Tour the opera house....More
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 …Morecarried 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
