This small motel is priced very reasonably. It's not fancy, but they have the basics: my bed was clean and comfortable, and the good-sized room had a microwave and fridge. I have been to Riverton several times in the last year (2015-2016) and expect to return; the most efficient method seems to be to fly to Denver, take a bus... More

I had a confirmed reservation with The Desert Inn on 7/9/16, but we got caught with car trouble and had to stay at the Motel 6 in Casper - and try to get our car fixed the next day - a Sunday. We had called ahead and spoke to the owner "Ron," to say we were having car trouble and... More

Being a bus driver I stay in all types of hotel rooms. This one for a small town and hotel was exceptionally clean I would not hesitate to stay here again or tell anyone that this is a place that they could stay. I was greeted at the front desk with a warm good evening. Very cool retro bathroom and... More

The Desert Inn Motel is simple, but clean and with most of the basic amenities including wifi and cable TV. The desk clerk was gracious and kind. I found the decor charmingly retro and a pleasant change from the franchise motels that seem to have taken over. Its the only motel in Shoshoni and nothing between Caspar and here. Many... More

Room was clean. Wi if worked great. Friendly quick check in. There is a burger place next door that serves beer and ice cream treats but they don't open for breakfast. I had a good bacon cheeseburger and fries.

The Desert Inn stands alone in Shoshoni, amid three other closed motels. Fortunately, it is reasonably good, although business when I was there for three nights was slow, and the very nice owners are trying to sell the motel. The room was comfortable, clean, and had good wifi and dish tv. Very clean; very attentive owners. The downside that the... More

The Desert Inn is located in a small town with less than a thousand residents. It is older,but very neat and clean. Friendly, helpful owners. Great wi-fi (free) Dish tv (new flat screen in our room), small microwave and fridge. Don't expect big town luxury, but enjoy simplicity. We will be here for a few months, and I look forward...
