While planning my trip to Reno and NE Nevada, a friend recommended the Red Lion in Elko. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this hotel/casino. Very comfortable room with free wifi and other amenities including an in-room safe, frig, microwave oven, coffee maker. The casino is also nice, as well as the restaurants. The Aspen Bar & Grill...

The room was nice and clean but when we went to bed the sheets where extremely scratchy. It made for a very uncomfortable night sleep for all parties. Staff upon check in was friendly but very stressed out. Most rooms sold out.

Newer, maybe cleaner inside than some of the surrounding older places - The Red Lion seems to be the staple place where most business people stay. The service is fantastic, efficient and professional. It's a nice, central location with lots of rooms of all sizes and price points, tons of dining options and there's a Starbucks that opens at 5...

What a great find! We needed a place to stay for a short, overnight as we passed through. We decided to stay here after reading reviews, and seeing the Management's investment in customer engagement through social media. Room was awesome! Large, meticulously clean, and arguably updated. Great job! Aspen is a crown in this establishment! Cozy, great libation selection, and... More

The room was a dump. my oldest son found a syringe in the coffee pot reservoir , when he poured water in to make a pot of coffee the syringe floated to the surface. The staff laughed and "kindly" refunded us our $15.00 pet fee!!! Sick and disgusting. wouldn't reccomend this crappy place to any one!!

Katherine, I was shocked to find out that this happened to you. In my investigation, I did discover that you were immediately moved to another room and the room in question was closed for a full search and cleaning of the room that included the disposal of the coffee maker, inspection of overhead ceiling tiles, as well as every inch...

Checking in and out was fast and easy. The desk personnel very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean. The hotel was very quiet for sleeping. Enjoyed my stay. Would stay there again. I was able to park close to the door. I liked having a Starbucks in the Casino area.

I had a pet friendly room. It was wonderful. Clean, spacious and had a very comfortable bed. I didn't have a reservation and was happy that you had room since I was traveling and had driven 8 hours already.

Check in was real easy and pleasant. Found the room okay but minimal parking at night. Rooms are dated but well kept and clean. Lots of room for kids. Really liked the microwave oven and refrigerator.

Be advised the rooms are not as updated or nice as they appear in the photos. Room was reasonably clean, but not great. Wallpaper was peeling and the bathroom towel bar was falling off the wall. I will say, however, that the beds were comfortable, which allowed for a good night's sleep. But I would definitely not call this a... More

Rest assured that we have fixed the towel rack and are addressing the wallpaper issue. As to the 3 Star rating,... More
