Made a reservation here as it was half way point to my destination. The pet rooms are on the ground floor which is convenient. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. My daughter arrived by train later in the night. Our room included a voucher for two breakfasts up to $10.95 each. We both enjoyed a good breakfast before... More

I stayed here for a recent weekend getaway. I've stayed at the Red Lion before and I knew what to expect. I paid about $75 a night for a Friday and Saturday night, which I thought was very reasonable. I was extra surprised, though, when they honored my free night casino night, which brought the price down to about $85... More

After along week we booked a weekend at the Red Lion. The room was very comfortable and clean. Along with the adjoining restaurants it made our weekend enjoyable. My only suggestion would be to let the guest control the temperature in the room themselves. We found the fan running all night annoying. Other then that we do recommend the Red... More

Frank, thank you for posting a review of the hotel. Your comment regarding controlling the temperature in the rooms surprises me. All of our rooms have thermostats that control the heat and the cooling. Additionally there is a switch to turn the fan on automatic or so that it is ON all of the time. We are sorry that your...

The Red Lion in Elko is an older property and is attached to a casino. Sadly the worst part of this fact is that the cigarette smoke drifts to the hotel hallways and rooms thus making the rooms somewhat smelly. The rooms are comfortable even though they are older. There is a nice restaurant attached to the hotel as well... More

Thank you for your review. We are always renovating some part of our hotel and most recently completed a renovation of our rooms. As with most casinos, working to eliminate cigarette odor remains a challenge. We are gaining ground, but have not completely eliminated the problem. More

Red Lion had some decent reviews and we were looking for a place closer to Reno than Salt Lake City on our drive from Aspen, CO. After 10hrs in the car, we had booked a suite and I had made a note on the booking that we had a dog with us. When we arrived at the hotel, they did... More
