Travelling through Nevada and California this week, we stayed at multiple properties. This stop outside Death Valley was my favorite of the week. It was a basic motor lodge, don't get me wrong, but it was clean, well-maintained and service was excellent. What more can you ask for? Beatty is a small town, but we were directed to food, gas,...

Great place to stay while exploring Death Valley and surrounding area. If you are particular about your bedding comfort, you will not be disappointed. Superior bed and luxurious sheets. Don't expect a lot of frou frou frills if you are into that, though. Very nice and very helpful front desk.

We needed a stopover en route from Flagstaff to the Sierra and Beatty was it. With limited choices obviously, we looked at TripAdvisor and the reviews were spot-on. This motel is friendly and so well maintained! Right from the phone call to book it, I could tell the owners care. It is a family-run place with the original building dating...

Bathroom was spacious and had cool toiletries. Beatty is a small town and at night you get the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere, but if...
