The staff was friendly and the free wi-fi worked well, but those are the only good things I can say. We knew Shoshone was a tiny town, but it was close to the entrance to Death Valley and was supposed to have a cafe. When we arrived at 4pm, we were informed that the only cafe was closed and we would have to drive 27 miles into Nevada to get dinner in Pahrump. While there, we cleverly bought some food for breakfast so we wouldn't have to go out of our way for another meal. After all, we had a room with a kitchen. However, it turned out that the "kitchen", if you can call it that, had no pans, no dishes, no utensils. How in the world are you supposed to use a kitchen that is completely and totally empty? Sleep was also hard to come by. The doors of the rooms all have a funny window on them that lets in the lights that they keep on all night. There's no way to block it. And the cute little fire pit they have right out in front of the rooms draws quite a crowd at night. At least 15 people were sitting 20 feet in front of our door, laughing and talking, until we got dressed and went out to ask them to be quiet at midnight. We wish we had just stayed in Pahrump, since it wasn't out of the way after all (if you want to eat).
