From other recent TripAdvisor reviews, my wife and I were expecting something akin to a San Francisco Tenderloin flea bag hotel. Our expectations were very low. We had a small pet, so we needed a pet friendly motel. The Horseshu was the only game in town.
We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and was your standard motel layout (bathroom right inside the front door, beds to the rear). We were in the "Buffalo" wing, which was doggie heaven. Most of the rooms were for pets on our floor. There are plenty of grass areas for those bodily needs of our four-legged friends.
The negatives: No internet available (neither paid nor free). The Horseshu, which is rooms only, is across US-93 from its parent, Cactus Pete's. You have to check in at Cactus Pete's, but it was a bit of driving around the perimeter of the Horseshu to realize there was no front desk at the Horseshu itself. The TV was and older model, but there were plenty of cable channels to choose from.
Other notes: the front desk at Cactus Pete's were very friendly at both check-in and check-out and the coffee shop at Cactus Pete's was perfectly acceptable. Gas is very expensive at the only gas station in the area, so try to fill up in either Twin Falls, ID or Wells, NV (as of September 2009).More
