Over the years I've stayed in several motels in Elko, Nevada. My last two trips there I've stayed in this motel, and there's a reason for this. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the prices are reasonable, the rooms I've stayed in are spacious, clean and comfortable. All the amenities were in good working order. Lots of hot water,... More

The rooms were large and clean (having spent the last three years traveling with my cat, fleas can be a problem at hotels that allow pets), the staff was excellent, and they were polite about our late check-in (4 am). It was a great way to end the day after a trip where everything seemed to go wrong.

Got into room and looked nothing like advertisement, mattresses has permanent butt inprints from past customers who slept in same spot. Fridge was nasty..spilled milk and something growing in it see attached pic. All night diesel engines pulling in and other guests very noisy as majority of guests are mining contractors getting up early and pulling in late. Not a... More

Mandy, I apologize if your stay was anything less than you were hoping for. I'm especially disappointed to see that photo -- if your fridge wasn't cleaned properly, that's our mistake, and I'll be doing my best to ensure it never happens again. I also apologize if our other guests kept you awake. Of course, it's hard for us to... More

Had reservations and upon arriving, our room wasn't ready for about an hour. The room wasn't anything special and the pool was unheated. The casino was very smokey. The restaurant is your typical family restaurant. Waiter was attentive and good value for your money. Wouldn't stay here again.

I apologize your room wasn't ready when you got here, Norm. Our normal check in time is 4pm however we always try to accommodate our guests and I'm sorry you were disappointed. Aside from that, and a few other small details, it sounds like your stay was mostly enjoyable, so I hope you'd consider giving us another chance sometime --... More

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 found America's Best Value Gold Country Inn & Casino a surprisingly great place to stay.

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
