If you stay in Shoshone, this Inn is the only choice of accommodation. I feel that it was overpriced but considering the remoteness of the location it is probably expensive to bring in essentials. The room was basic....forget about TV as the reception was poor. The pool was a long walk away and the temperature was perfect. The outdoor setting... More

we stayed here one night before entering death valley national park. shosone is very near the entrance we wanted to use in order to see the wildflowers. there is no cell phone service since it is such an isolated place. the women at the front desk were very helpful with planning our visit to death valley ( in fact, one...

Stayed one night because we didn't want to pay the rates at Furnace Creek. Simple to be sure, but fully functional with a very friendly staff. Simple pool as well, but it is spring fed at a natural 89 degrees, outstanding! Went for a dip after dark on a cool evening, loved it. Great little place to eat across the... More

I stayed at the Shosone Inn on a cool February weekend in 2015. My room was spacious. The bed did not give me a back ache. I didn't watch television because I could only get five channels with sound. The room featured a coffee maker and a small bar type counter with two stools. My room was clean and odor... More

Stayed 2 night in mid-February of 2015. Tired hotel with an old TV that gets 5 channels with a fuzzy picture and a ringing noise. Cleanliness was okay. Put this motel in most other locations and it would be a $35 a night place. Crowbar restaurant/bar across the street had good food at a decent price. If you just want... More

We stayed at this site during our recent visit to Death Valley. It is reasonably priced given the short distance from death valley entrance. Room was clean, big with microwave and fridge. Sleep quality is very good. WiFi is not reliable at all. There is a gas station with a grocery store just next to the hotel. They also have... More

We have stayed at this site three times over the past few years and seen considerable improvement largely due to pruning of the brush around the pool and the adjacent artificial marsh. The site is an older, funky site with very reasonable rates and a nice warm (~90 deg-not hot) spring pool across the back road. The most recent site... More

The management of this inn should be an example for all businesses on how to handle a bad situation. After leaving a review about a negative previous stay, they contacted us and invited us back to give their property another try. Things could not have been better the second time. The manager, Elaine, was very friendly and attentive, making sure... More

We stayed one night here in November while passing through. Honestly, I can't find much to recommend. The room was not updated, but neither was it charming. The "Cable TV" was 10 channels, barely good enough reception to watch. The "Pool" was located at the RV park, 1/4 mile up the road. The backstory Shoshone (pop. 31, everything owned by... More

We stayed at the inn before our travels through Death Valley the following day. Loved it, what you expect an old motel in America to be like. Remote, we loved the fact that Shoshone was such a small place, this is why we booked. There was only us at the motel this evening and even though we were late arriving... More
