We had a group of 5 couples on an overnight ATV ride from AZ. We stayed here for one night and it was a very nice and comfortable room. It included a mini fridge and microwave. Not sure how old it is but it looked updated. The only drawback is it is close to a railroad track and the train...

This was the perfect choice for a comfortable rest after a full day on the road. The place is clean, updated, conveniently placed between the two restaurants in town, and economical to boot. Definitely staying here again!

The Shady Motel was clean and comfortable. Our room had a small refrigerator and a microwave, but if you are a coffee or tea drinker there is no way to make these in your room. Caliente is a very small town and I was very pleased with the Shady Motel. Bathroom was clean, room was large and clean! I'd stay...

After a meeting in Caliente my co-workers were driving back to Alamo. We decided to stay in Caliente and this hotel was pretty decent. Very clean and welcoming for a hotel in rural Nevada. I would recommend.

We had just escaped the dump down the street and thankfully this turned out well. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Definitely stay here in this tiny town. My only complaint, which the Motel has no control over, is the train horn and thundering of the train during the night. Felt like My Cousin Vinny.

A perfect stop in Caliente, NV after a long drive. Owner Nolan could not have been more courteous, accommodating, friendly, and informative. Room 204 - clean, fresh room; all amenities included. Excellent value at $60 per night in off season - November 15. Well located just up the street (two minute walk) from Knotty Pine Restaurant. The historic Caliente Railroad...

Compared to so many lodgings along eastern Nevada corridors, the Shady Motel is a welcome respite. Clean, large rooms, friendly staff and comfortable beds. This is the sort of establishment for travelers that want a neat and comfortable room for a reasonable rate.

Great value motel in good location. Comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and oatmeal available in reception in the morning. Friendly staff. Some huge trains go through the town during the night so take your ear plugs!

“Rooms that start with 400 are in the remodeled section. Low digits are set back from the road. #402 is upstairs, #401 down.”

“Try to get a room as far away from the tracks as possible. Only five doors down won't be completely quiet, but it'll be better than the rooms next to the highway and tracks. Also - choose an upstairs room if you're bothered by hearing people stomping around in the morning in the upstairs unit. But please be courteous and tread lightly. The fridges in the rooms aren't all the same. Some are little cubes and some are larger. If you need fridge space, check the room out before checking in.”
