Stagecoach Hotel and Casino
Travel Blogs from Beatty
Well we are back where we started last Sunday. Lori kept up with me all week (good job) and that means I didn't ride fast enough. Last night we stayed in a small motel next to a great little restaurant called Jessica's and had a wonderful Greek dinner. The owner is quiet a character who moved to Williams 10 years ago. Stop in there if you ever get …
Leaving Las Vegas !!! :( Aan veel goede dingen komen soms een eind....zo ook ons oponthoud in Las Vegas. Het is natuurlijk wel zo dat we nadat we onze kamer hebben verlaten dat we nog rustig vanalles kunnen doen. Echter we wilden ook richting Death Valley dus daar zal niet veel van komen. We waren 'pas' rond 9:30 wakker....nog genoeg tijd want we …
... walked on sand dunes and drove down some oneway roads through tight rocks.
Many people each year get lost in Death Valley and drive off the main road and then die. GPS don't work properly there and the place is so enormous it was easy to see why. So we stuck the main roads and did not do any off roading, however our car still looks like it has been doing some 4WDriving.
After our big day we headed back to ...
... We eventually got there and really had no idea what we were looking for, after a walk around for half an hour or so we still had not much of a clue. It was hard to know as we think people come in and drag the rocks around to confuse you. Anyway we drove a little further up and saw a couple of people leaning down taking photos. So we got out and followed them. Found the rock and sure enough we could see its trail. Sorry to say not sure it ...
... That scares me to think how they were taught. No medicines available nor heating, hygiene was really bad as there was not even any privacy at the toilet. We left leaving our respects. Our hearts were heavy for quite a while, very similar to Sandakan.
We headed off to Death Valley taking a long time, stopping frequently to get a better view. We had to stop in the middle for fuel which was 6.29 a gallon, 3 dollars more than in bishop. Oh well, we had no choice. We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Stagecoach Hotel and Casino Beatty
I can't believe this hotel gets any kind of favorable acknowledgement in the travel guides. The long walk down the outside corridor that was sided by a 9-foot tall iron fence should have been an early clue. Then, the room, even with all the lights on, had the comfy appeal of a dungeon. There was a partially paralyzed cockroach crawling across the bathroom floor. Of the 6 lightbulbs over the sink, 3 were nonfunctioning. The pool, which is on the other side of the iron fence, carries a close resemblance to a pond covered with duckweed. We asked for a refund 15 minutes after checking in and found another motel. If we were to return to the Death Valley area, we would spend the extra bucks and stay INSIDE the park. The only thing that Beatty has going for it is the nice public library and the last gas station before Death Valley.
An oasis in the desert?
Hey when it's 110 degrees outside you can't be too picky! The worst things about the Stagecoach: the rooms and the staff ... the best things about the Stagecoach: the A/C ... the A/C ... the A/C and of course the steak & eggs.
Not the best hotel in Beatty
We've stayed there twice - small rooms both times, although the first one, in the casino building had the advantage of being attached to casino game room, and cafe - decent food etc. The second one was very very small and in the outside area by the pool. NOT NEARLY as nice as The Exchange Club. My kids like the game room though and they have great coffee.on our second stay we were awakened by noisy pool cleaner at 6 am no apologies. staff can be VERY erratic here sometimes super nice, sometimes waaay surly. Again, check out the exchange club...
I liked it
The food was good. Room was clean and quite. Oh yea I won $2,000 thats two thousand bucks. aug.03
A friend and I, participating in a field trip, arrived at the Stagecoach Friday, October 17, 2003, checked in & met the other members of our party for dinner in the cafe at 6 PM. Returning to our room early on, we entered, locked the door, and there followed a loud shattering noise. We were frightened that someone was in the bathroom - my friend checked while I waited outside. We discovered the very large bathroom mirror had shattered and was in millions of pieces all over the bathroom where one of us had planned on going momentarily. Long shards were protruding from the toilet, the bathtub was gouged badly as was the floor and door. We phoned the office - they sent a man over with a rollabout plastic bin, a broom and a dustpan - he swept and picked up - leaving a little blood around from his cuts. The next day we mentioned to the front desk that "we were the women in the room with the exploding mirror" and please do not replace it while we are there - we were assured it would not be "as it would have to come from Las Vegas" - (still somewhat in shock) we waited until we checked out this AM 10/20/03 to express our concern that no one had even inquired about our welfare - A woman in the office said "I didn't know about that", and we were told it was a good thing we were not hit by flying glass (laughing all around) and the woman said "That mirror has been there for four years" - very defensively. We left and will not stay there again. Our main concern is that we feel the mirror was most likely not secured properly and perhaps this will occur again - anyone in the bathroom would have undoubtedly been killed instantly. My friend took pictures. The food was OK & waitstaff very friendly - a real asset to the establishment.
I have been in the small town of Beatty and am concidering moving there. I feel that the stagecoach is getting a bit of bad press because they are not the Cheapest hotel in town. They do have the largest Casino in town. They are not the biggest in Nevada, but for a town that is only a mile long I feel that you are getting your monies worth when you go there and stay at the Stagecoach.
Friendly People Are Still Out There
The Room was Pleasantly clean and very big. Ritas Cafe was to die-for best Ham Steak I ever had, my wife had a Chicken Fried Steak "Four Stars ". Upon check-out we discovered that our car had a flat tire and our spare tire was also flat. The Manager was nice enough to assist us. He took it to his home since there is not a tire repair shop in Beatty. It only took him about 20 or 30 minutes to fix the tire and didn't charge us a dime. Over all this was the best place on our trip back from Reno. We even did ok on the slots and the Casion Staff were very Friendly. We will definitely tell our friends and will come back on our next trip north.
Inhospitable and Incompetent
The people were so rude and incompetent that I was willing to drive across Death Valley to get a room in Lone Pine. They botched my reservation, made my family wait 3 1/2 hours in 110+ degree heat to find out that our credit card held reservation was virtually useless.
Along with that they were rude and condesending. I would recommend driving the next 100 miles or so to a better location.
Kinda scary, but not the worst in the world. TV good. They were in process of renovating. Casino was smokey. Rita's Cafe was great food with homemade chicken soup. You had to walk through the smokey Casino to get to the cafe. The cafe was under renovation also. The food was good if you didn't mind sitting in duct taped cushions.
Ok but a bit scarey
the room was very basic and a bit grotty but better than others we stayed in on our trip. The people weren't overly friendly in fact we felt a bit uncomfortable so we just had something to eat in the cafe and stayed in our room for the rest of the night.
Got woken up at 5.40am by an earthquake and couldn't wait to leave.
