We loved this place. Clean, quiet, friendly and definitely authentic. I hope the don't upgrade it too much. If you like a lot frilly trappings, stay on the highway. We will be back next month. The Crowbar, across the street is a a great bar and restaurant, in the same vein as the motel. If you have weird diet issues,... More

We've stayed here twice, once in a room in the main room block, and once in the bungalow in back. The place is clean, the people are nice. Having a frig, microwave, and a mini kitchen (or a full one in the bungalow) is fantastic, as there's only one place to eat in town, and as grain-free vegetarians, eating any... More

Dirty and expensive... Unbelievable such kind of places still exists. The worst price/quality ratio of all the motels experienced in 15 days of touring national parks in the west of the US.... If you need a hotel in the area, drive one more hour to Furnace Creek...

We use this inn as a base for desert hiking in the area and for visiting hot springs in nearby Tecopa. This is an older motel with the basic necessities - if you like fancy hotels this is not the place for you. I loved the motel patio with a fire pit, the quiet little village atmosphere, the natural walking... More

On a road trip with friends we stopped at the Crowbar across the street for food and ended up staying later than expected at the bar drinking and having a great time so we rented a room for the night. The lady working the check-in counter was very sweet and she put us in the older part of the hotel... More

The website is fabulous and you could see exactly what was there. It was a desert motel, probably furniture bought at an auction, but all so nicely redone to match. It was so clean and there was a kitchenette with a lot of dishes. The bed was comfortable and the window opened to let in the fresh air. The car... More

Leaving h Valley from the south we stopped in this beautiful calm little town of Shoshone (18 residents). The owners of the only motel are here since the 1970s. The bed was comfortable, the room very clean. In Shoshone there is an excellent cafe called the Crow Bar, and a General store/Gas station and a postal office, and that's all.... More

I was concerned after reading reviews about the Shoshone Inn, but I knew there were not many options. We were travelling with my in-laws and 3 children and needed a place to stay after leaving Death Valley on our way to Palm Springs. It is an extremely small, remote town and very much had the appearance of an "old western... More

We stayed here for lack of any place else to stay. The gal at the desk was obviously new, and finally found our reservation. I'd paid quite a ways in advance, because they charge your card when you make a reservation. It was in the 90's while we were there, but no air conditioning, coolers, or even a fan. The... More

I visited on July 27 2015. There was an older lady working the front desk. She was rude and not helpful at all. I found the hotel to be very basic but that's what I like. The newly remodeled rooms were nice but again basic. I did not find the ladies working at the entire city to be friendly at... More
