From the outside, you might not stop here, but the rooms are lovely. The amenities are very good, the furnishings lovely, and the little kitchen area is very nice too. It's just so darn far to get back and forth to the Death Valley National Park. I am not saying the places in the park are any better, but your travel time is none.

Hotel's Favorite
This has to be a highlight of our California trip last summer, a place that I doubt I will forget and the place my husband always talks about. The temperature was great, the sky at night was incredible (the best place I have captured the Milky Way on camera). You don’t have a lot of choice when you want to stay in the area unless you want to travel and after a day in Death Valley we didn’t want to travel far, so we booked a stop here in advance and absolutely loved it. We tried the hot springs swimming pool up the road, and had an incredible nights sleep. From the outside it looks like a 1950s motel, you know that iconic U shaped image, but inside we were totally amazed with the very modern interior, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. I wished we could have stayed longer. Shoshone is not very big with a great bar/restaurant, a shop, a petrol station and the friendliest post office. The highlight of the stay was the receptionist who gave us a history talk on check in, which was fabulous and the best check in experience I have experienced.

Our family stayed in the Mojave Bunk House with all of the amenities of the Shoshone Inn. The rental had all of the comforts of home, beautiful decorations, and brand new appliances and furniture. The bedrooms are large, bathrooms fully stocked with necessities, and a large bar area and kitchen table with plenty of room for the entire group! Our family enjoyed the large front porch and gazing at the stars each evening. The staff was friendly and helpful and checked in with us each day to be sure our family was enjoying our rental and the village of Shoshone. The breakfast at the Crow Bar cannot be missed, as well as a visit to the museum, and the pup fish trail. The spring water pool is always a family favorite when we visit and we also enjoy a stop by the market for ice cream! The comfort of Shoshone is a must. Even though it is a small town, you are greeted with friendly smiles, hospitality, and a sense of peace that is unique to this special town.

Hidden gem on the south end of Death Valley! I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2021 and felt right at home - in a luxe home. Shoshone is a lovely town completely immersed in local desert flora and fauna. You'll wake up and walk 50 steps out your door, surrounded by birds, desert bunnies, and sunshine. In Shoshone you can find peace and quiet, but also a friendly town filled with kind people. The rooms of the inn have been kept up-to-date with great care. I especially liked the luxury bath & spa products, the blackout curtains (to keep the desert sun + heat out), the sparkling new bathroom and kitchenette (with breakfast corner!), the efficient AC and the lovely soft bed. They have a spring-fed swimming pool a short walk from the property near a local ecological restoration wetland. Thank you to Catrice and Susan being so welcoming during my stay.

Enjoyed my stay at this "only game in town" hotel. It has been updated with new plumbing fixtures and furniture. It's very well maintained both on the interior and exterior. The outdoor courtyard with fire pit area was cozy and inviting. I would definitely visit again if in the area.
