Hotel Nipton is an antique bed and breakfast, originally built in 1905. Nipton was founded on February 9, 1905. Nipton was bought and restored in 1984. This room is named after Clara Bow, the famed silent movie actress of the 1920's. Bow successfully made the transition to "talkies" after 1927. The film "It" made Bow a global success and gave her the nickname "The It Girl". She appeared in 46 silent films and 11 talkies. In 1931, Bow retired from acting after marrying Rex Bell. She became a rancher in Nevada and owned a ranch 16 miles away from Nipton, CA. When Clara Bow visited Nipton to pick up her fan mail, it is said she preferred to stay in room 3 at Hotel Nipton. Clara and Rex visited with friends in Nipton, including Harry and Ella Trehearne.

Important to note: the train in the pictures runs through Nipton, during the day and night. We have provided each room and cabin with complimentary earplugs for this reason. You may also visit the Nipton Trading Post for more earplugs. Some guests love the train and how it feels just like it did when the train was established in 1904; some have said it is too noisy for them.
