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

After several excellent meals at Shoshone's only restaurant over the past two years we decided to try the Inn; figured it had to be at least as good as the motels in Beatty. We were wrong. The room was in poor condition, dusty, peeling paint over the bed, toilet broken. The "cooler," sounded like a car engine in the middle... More

Shoshone is a one-horse town 50 miles from the nearest settlements at Baker and in Death Valley. It has one motel, one bar, one restaurant and one garage/general store. Shoshone Inn is the motel and the art where we stayed which as set back from the rest showed its age with quaint wooden rooms and a porch where you can... More

This RV was lovely. Quiet in early August. Hummingbirds all around. A great pool fed with incredibly warm water from a local spring and great facilities. A lovely library with loads of books, VHS. Players and videos. A clean laundry etc. Free wifi worked at our spot over by the pool, but was pretty slow.

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
