I booked a room at the El Portal Motel in Beatty based on the recommendations on this site. The room I got was so different from the descriptions on this site that I actually went out and re-checked the name and the address. Sadly the motel room was extremely run down, with stained brown shag carpet, dirty curtains, chipped and threadbare furniture and holes in the blankets. The list goes on and on. If you are looking for the worst motel room you could possibly stay in, this one should be at the top of your list. On a safety note, the heat was provided by a free standing heater that could be dangerous for kids and some of the rooms also faced the main street with no demarcation or fence. There are several good hotels and motels in Beatty, so my advice would be: don’t stop, just keep on driving.
