Great place to stay!
We found the Atomic Inn kinda by accident. It wasn’t a destination, but we found ourselves in the area and needed a place to stay. I read the reviews on here, and decided to give it a try. I was skeptical and asked to see a room before we committed to staying. The gentleman at the front desk was very helpful and was happy to let us see the room. It was spacious and clean. It’s not a high dollar chain hotel, but the bed was comfortable and it was quiet. He also suggested dinner at the VFW (amazing food!) If you find yourself in the area, give it a try.

Interesting and Economical
Be sure to look at the photos. This is an 'old fashioned' and 'quaint' place to stay. 'Bare bones' is another description. The key you get is a 'real' key. The room was large. It did have a musty smell. The WiFi was not a strong signal. It was very poor in the evening and there was none in the morning. The room had no kleenex and no phone. We had to get extra towels from the office. The wash cloths were folded into 'characters' (see photos). The shower diverter (to turn the water up from the tub to the shower head) was broken so only a small amount of water came out of the shower head.
There was some traffic noise so we used the a/c fan. The room cost $69 but there was a discount of 10% for Veteran and the tax was $5.59. So it was economical.
The landscaping was interesting (see photos) and the roses were nice.

We stayed here for two nights, in order to visit the Death Valley. The location is perfect if you don't want to spend a lot for an hotel inside the park. The room was clean and we had a microvawe and a small fridge. The outside was not well cured, but the rest of the city was the same. The staff was friendly. We had a problem with the shower: after the first shower, the second person will not have warm water! If you don't want too much, this will be good for a couple of night. Only another problem: in the city there are not so much restaurant and someone are closed. You could find only a supermarket, a Family Dollar nearby, but without fresh food like vegetables and fruits ...

MOSTLY CLEAN, QUIET, FRIENDLY, & AFFORDABLE but...
You can't beat the price for this place. Being that it's in a small town. I didn't reserve my room in advance. I just rolled up that night and got my room. The staff was very friendly. I like the look of the place. The outside made to look futuristic with the UFO/Alien theme. But that's not why I booked. The reviews here made me stop. For the most part, it was fine. I understand you get what you pay for. Only two things that bugged me. The dust and the bed. I didn't mind the decor. Kinda outdated, but that's not why I book these type of small town hotels. I want comfort, sleep and quiet. 1 out of 3 ain't bad. Very quiet for me. (ROOM 30 - 2nd row - corner room). It wasn't too booked. I believe no one was staying next to me or across from me. The beds need to be address. Not comfortable. Too firm for my taste. They are certainly big enough. Tossed and turned all night. I got enough sleep to function the next day, but it wasn't comfortable sleep. The room was a little dusty. But that's not too big an issue with me. The bathroom was clean. Big enough shower and enough towels for my one night stay. Again, great price. They offer coffee & oatmeal in the AM! Oh and the iron rod steps leading up to room are kinda janky. Some might say it adds charm but the iron steps wobble as you're trying to open door (which they still use an actual key). Low key concern. Just an observation. The room came with the usual stuff; Refrigerator, microwave & TV. I really would have no problem staying here again. You could do A LOT worse! Just work on those beds please!

Nice clean off highway location
I’ve stayed in three locations now in Beatty and I must admit I like this one the best, because if it’s off Highway quiet location. People in the office were very nice to me over the phone helping me with the reservation and my unique request to be able to park near the room. Simple and clean accommodations.
