Shady Motel
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Caliente
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The room was clean. Flat panel tv with Direct TV, neither of which one might have expected in Caliente. Everything worked in the room. It was hot outside but the air conditioner kept the room cool. The bed was firm but comfortable. It had a blanket instead of one of those darned duvets. The staff was friendly and efficient. The price ($66) made the room a good value. Just one item of constructive criticism--all four pillows in the room were very firm. It would be nice to provide a selection, like two firm and two soft.

Very clean. The room was spacious enough and included two queen beds, a table, desk, dresser, fridge and microwave. There was no in-room coffee maker, but the coffee was always good and always ready in the mornings in the lobby. The bed, although not a plush pillow-top mattress, was quite comfortable. There was no in-room iron or ironing board. There also are no guest laundry facilities on-site, but there is at least one coin-op laundry in Caliente.
I stayed for several nights on business and was able to get a fairly good night's sleep each night. I could hear the people stomping around in the room upstairs in the evenings and again in the mornings if they were early risers. I could also hear the plumbing in the neighboring rooms, but it wasn't too bad. The Union Pacific Railroad is across the highway from the hotel and most nights there were two or three trains that went through town at various hours.
When I return to Caliente, I will most likely stay at this motel again.
Another tip about Caliente - Breakfasts are good at the Knotty Pine and lunch isn't bad at the local pizza shop, but there are no restaurants in town that serve dinners worth eating. The motel has a charcoal grill and lawn area. If you want a good meal, buy some meat at the local grocery store and cook out. It'll be a lot less expensive and taste a whole lot better than anything that the local restaurants can produce.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far away from the tracks as possible. Only five doors down won't be comple...

On a road trip from Oregon to Arizona we wanted to see the Catheral Gorge NV state Park. The park is in a fairly remote part of the state so there are not many hotels to choose from, We found the Shady Motel in Caliente, Nv and were very pleasantly surprised. The room are as clean as clean can be, large, nicely furnished and very
comfortable. The outside and grounds are also very well maintained. The owner checked us in and his service was excellent, helpful and friendly. It is a family operation and you can tell they take pride in and enjoy what they are doing. Caliente is a charming small town and the hotel is within walking distance of food and drink. We will definitely stay here again if in the area.

I stayed at the Shady Motel twice when driving through Nevada. The Shady Motel is clean, comfortable and has everything that I wanted for an overnight stay on the road. When I say clean, I mean the rooms are immaculate. It is family run, and the owners take great pride in the place. It is located in the middle of town, easy walking distance to everything. It is dog friendly, which was important to me as I was travelling with my labrador retreiver. I highly recommend the Shady Motel, and will stay here again when I have to travel through this area.

A group of us ride our ATV's from Beaver Dam Arizona to Caliente once or twice a year and spend the night. We always choose the Shady Motel as the rooms are very clean, reasonably priced and provide very friendly and excellent customer service. It is conveniently located with a good restaurant within a short walking distance. We always enjoy our stay there.

We rode from Mesquite, NV to Caliente and spent the night. Very nice motel with immaculate rooms and very friendly staff. Coffee and tea available in the morning. Short walk to a nice local restaurant with some gaming machines. We ate dinner and breakfast there. We are planning another overnight trip/ ride with our group for October and will definitely stay at the Shady. .
