Don't know what happened to SonjaS1, but I stayed at Shoshone Inn about the same time and the staff was most helpful and courteous, the room was comfortable, and the location is GREAT! I have led many international field trips to Death Valley with overnight stays at the Shoshone Inn; none of my participants have ever complained about the staff... More

Avoid at all costs unless you enjoy being reprimanded and racially insulted by their flipping maid!!! (yes: the person who cleans the rooms (or not as that appeared to be in this case) considers it part of her role to antagonize paying customers rather then staying well behind the scenes and leave customers well alone) Apart from that nothing positive...

Stayed two nights while heading to Death Valley. The motel is clean, however in much need of repairs. There were cracks in the ceiling and the bathroom needed to be updated. The staff was very helpful and did the a good job. The wifi did not work so it was difficult to receive or send email.

Planned a trip to Death Valley, CA (DV). Couldn't get a campground in the Valley so decided to stay in Shoshone. Reserved a room at the Shoshone Inn via TripAdvisor - was very easy to do. On arrival at the Inn, I was pleasantly-greeted. Motel staffer provided me with information on local activities. The entire staff at this property was... More

The motel is older and well used but clean, the room was larger than I expected. There was even a microwave and refrigerator both working very well. My only complaint was the wifi, which was so slow that I gave up after waiting 20 minutes for my email to load. It was quiet though most of the rooms were occupied.... More

Of 16 RV sites visited this was one of the best and an ideal launch pad from which to enter Death Valley from its more scenic southern end. The owners work so hard to keep the site pristine and their enthusiasm and desire to please is very evident. Nearby walks were recommended and very worthwhile and the nearby 'hamlet' had... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. The motel is basic but very clean and a much less expensive than staying in the park. Be sure to book ahead because we got there on a Friday, and there were no rooms left after we arrived. There is a lot to see in Shoshone even though it might not appear so at... More

This was a good place to park our RV and sleep at night and we ventured into Death Valley during the days. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The sites are not paved but have dry grass sections. The pool is a nice place to soak in. Wifi is adequate to check email but is slow. Suggest you top... More

Arrived there at the Shoshone RV Park on Jan. 6, 2014 and stayed 4 nights......Great place to hang your hat for awhile! Very clean bathrooms and showers, library (yes, library that's all good with a microwave) and laundry room with a sink for dishes and a reverse osmosis water tap for your water bottles when you go out exploring!

I visited Death Valley with my 6 year old daughter over 3 days and we stayed at the Shoshone Inn, it was very nice. The room was clean, the beds were firm and did not have any quirks we noticed.
