We stayed here for one night while exploring Death Valley in mid March. We had considered staying in the park but the reviews and the rates convinced us to explore other options. We hadn’t camped in quite a while, and the DVNP campgrounds didn’t look all that inviting, so in the end we opted to make the 45 minute drive up to Beatty.
Beatty is a small town and everything is easy to find right off their Main Street. And the El Portal is exactly what you’d picture a small town motel to look like. It was very windy and gusty during the day, so we were so happy just to have a roof over our heads. We checked in and found our room to be clean and spacious, with some nice little touches like finding a strip of toilet paper laid across the seat by housekeeping to assure us it had been cleaned. We felt totally comfortable and had a great night’s sleep!
One more note, try the burger and cheesesteak at the VFW, unbelievably good!More
