We only stayed one night as we passed through on a road trip to Colorado. I was very disappointed when we checked in to see a sign saying their pool was closed for the day due to maintenance issues. I always choose hotels with pools so we can get some exercise after sitting in the car all day. When I... More

Cut to the chase dude: $73 plus tax if a member of the best value club. Across the street from the venerable Red Lion. Large multi building hotel, outdoor pool, would be nice if they mentioned your room key won't open the locked door to it. You reach thru gate and open it from the inside. Two queen bed room... More

As several other reviews noted, the lobby was smokey but otherwise clean (keep in mind that the lobby is also a casino with several slot machines). The folks at the front desk were both friendly and efficient. The non-smoking room we had (in building D) was very clean and modern. We felt it was well worth what they were charging.... More

The staff couldn't be any better. They were very friendly and bent over backwards to make my family and I welcome. The room was larger than most and spotless The beds were very comfortable and everything in the room worked. There were also real coffee cups and "glass" glasses in the room. The room had a power strip for extra... More

Well, if you are looking for a bargain motel (and casino), this is the place in Elko. Typical check in was handled well by the staff. They gave us coupons to use in the restaurant, casino and the casino across the street. The 2 queen room was very spacious, comfortable beds, 2 separate sinks, good A/C etc. The major fault... More

We stayed here one night on a road trip booked through hotwire. This was brand new updated room, sink, bathroom, comfy bed. Had a microwave and fridge. I did have to ask for a smoke free room-this is a casino. They gave coupons for the breakfast and beer, tokens for the casino. Front desk friendly even called to be sure... More

I stayed here for 4 nights visiting my son who lives in Elko. The room was directly across from the Casino nevertheless it was very quiet and comfortable. The room was spotless except for the carpet which really needed steam cleaning. All the appliances worked and the furniture is real, not the plastic stuff seen so often in hotels. I... More

My elderly Mom and I spent the night at America's Best Value Gold Country at the start of our eastbound return of a long western road trip. We'd been through Elko years ago and used to stay someplace else, a place that has now changed hands. We wouldn't normally consider a hotel with a casino (it's just not our thing)... More

I stayed here again traveling to Utah with my little dog. The room I stayed in was very large and was very clean. You wouldn't know this room was for pets. It is quiet and a very reasonable price. I felt very safe traveling alone.

A group of us were in town for 3 night and were very pleasantly surprised at what a nice hotel this is. The room prices are one of the least expensive in town especially for what you get. I'm not at all surprised that it ranks 4th in the list of places to stay in Elko. The front desk employees... More
