We traveled to Death Valley for a day, our first visit, and found it amazing. As we left at dusk, we were envisioning a long trek to find lodging when we happened upon this charming, 50s retro style motel in Shoshone. We were delighted with the place, it was clean and comfortable and it reminded us of places we had... More

We stayed in the pink cabin and found it to have even more than we actually needed. It has housekeeping/cooking facilities, but we didn't do any cooking there. We were impressed by how quiet and comfortable it was. I am really picky about cleanliness, and it was plenty clean for me. Fresh toiletries and towels were always available. Since we... More

I was surprised by the room as it was remodeled and once walking in had a totally different look than expected, very clean and updated. Not all the rooms have been finished but it was much different than the last time I had stayed here.

This is a super place to stay if you want to get away from neon, artificial western stuff and urban glitz. Surrounded by spectacular scenery and close to Death Valley, this is a tiny town existing much the way that it existed for years...with the additional of some academics and scientists who are discretely studying unique resources of the area....

This was a long night for us. When we arrived the motel is in a total reconstruction, we were not advised when we made our reservations. There are four rooms behind the main motel.

We loved this place. Clean, quiet, friendly and definitely authentic. I hope the don't upgrade it too much. If you like a lot frilly trappings, stay on the highway. We will be back next month.

We've stayed here twice, once in a room in the main room block, and once in the bungalow in back. The place is clean, the people are nice. Having a frig, microwave, and a mini kitchen (or a full one in the bungalow) is fantastic, as there's only one place to eat in town, and as grain-free vegetarians, eating any... More

Dirty and expensive... Unbelievable such kind of places still exists. The worst price/quality ratio of all the motels experienced in 15 days of touring national parks in the west of the US.... If you need a hotel in the area, drive one more hour to Furnace Creek...

We use this inn as a base for desert hiking in the area and for visiting hot springs in nearby Tecopa.
