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

This is almost as basic as it gets in terms of a motel. The staff were very friendly and the place is the only show in town and right at the entrance to Death Valley, so there ya go. The beds, we had 2 twins, were OK but pretty short and I'm only 6'. We had all of 7 channels... More

The Shoshone inn is excellent place to stay if visiting this region of Death Valley. I stayed in this inn in 4/20/15 night. I came here at 10:30pm becasue of traffic in the LA area. When I called inn and let inn know I could not be here in 10:00pm. "Brain" (Canont remember her name?) in inn was very nice.... More

the perfect place to stay if you are planning a Death Valley tour. Our room, which had not yet been re-modeled, was basic, but spotless, had everything you could need. Fridge, microwave. There is even a warm pool. Elaine, who checked us in was friendly and helpful. Do not expect anything other than a fantastic basic, old-style motel and you... More

Stayed here for a Saturday night as my husband wanted to look at fossils in the hills and I wanted to visit Death Valley. The staff were really friendly at the Inn. The rooms had wifi, tv, coffee makers and were clean and had fridges and kitchenettes. Food can be purchased at the garage next door. Meals can be enjoyed... More

Nothing fancy but great staff and all the basics. Spent 2 nights here for less than we typically spend for 1 night. Very clean room. Pool was a pleasant bonus. My only concern was that several windows in the room did not lock. Nice little kitchen area furnished with some dishes.

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
