Found a great rate while driving cross-country with a small truck full of my son's belongings. Based on the price I didn't expect much, and was VERY pleasantly surprised! Lots of easy parking. Front desk was friendly and helpful, though it took a while to find my 3rd-party reservation. Got a second floor room that was spacious and clean, while... More

My husband travels through quite a bit for work and stays here a couple times a month, and we stay with him occasionally. Being a bit of a germ/clean freak I actually try to avoid hotel stays whenever possible. However, at Gold Country I always know our beds will be comfortable and clean and I look forward to knowing we... More

My family and I were very happy with this room! An older establishment, but the room was very clean and very large. The luggage area was big for a change. Enough room to keep 4 people's bags organized. I was surprised at how quiet the room was. I'm a very light sleeper, so I was very impressed! One thing that... More

Gold Country is my choice for frequent visits to Elko. The motel rooms are clean, roomy enough, adequate heating & a/c, etc., and not very expensive. But the restaurant on the property is fantastic! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever--you won't be disappointed.

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.

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
