I was greeted by the friendliest, warmest, honest, and downright nicest staff while checking in the hotel. They gave the wife and I one of the pet friendly rooms; HUGE room, great big soft queen beds, very comfortable beddings, very fast wi-fi, and a room with a separate sink/dressing room from the bathroom. The only issue was that the shower... More

Spent two nights here on our way to somewhere else (everybody's story when staying in Elko). The room was spacious but dated and had everything we needed (frig, microwave, cable TV, comfy bed). We ordered food to go from the casino's restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. A well deserved 1st night's rest after a long drive from West Yellowstone. After... More

Thanks for the review, folks. While I'm glad you enjoyed your first night's stay, not to mention our food and service, I'm sorry some of our other guests disrupted your sleep on the second night. This is an unusual thing for us, so I sincerely apologize. I hope you'll come back next time you're passing through Elko -- We'd love... More

We have stayed here once before and return for this visit. The room is large and the bathrooms have been redone. There are two sinks which is nice. There is a refigerator and microwave in the room. We like to be able to park right at the front door of the room as we have had a prior vehicle break... More

We found America's Best Value Gold Country Inn & Casino a surprisingly great place to stay. The staff was friendly and welcoming, but what made it special is that there were so many thoughtful extra touches in the room. From decor to lighting to general comfort and amenities, it was clear that the staff went out of its way to... More

The rooms are quiet, oversized and spotlessly clean. The beds are plush and very comfortable. The facility is well-designed with the ice machine centrally located downstairs in a cubby hole by itself with a sliding door to block out the noise. I also appreciate the fact that rooms are designated as non-smoking. I am planning a trip to the Ruby... More

This motel had everything we needed. Our room was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and seemed to care about our comfort. The seasonal pool was still open, so my husband enjoyed that. The location on the east side of Elko was perfect for us.

We booked this hotel for its location--right off the highway. Elko was mid-way on our trip to Lake Tahoe, CA. Every hotel in NV has a casino and you can't get to a restaurant without going through a casino--with smoking patrons. We asked for a table as far from the casino as possible but still smelled second hand smoke. The... More

The entire experience was marvelous, from the minute I arrived the staff was phenomenal, the facility was clean and the food was just as spectacular. This was my first visit but will definitely not be my last, gaming in the casino was enjoyable, and the management was present and attentive.
