I decided to make a weekend getaway of going to Elko and opted to stay at the Red Lion again. This was my third time staying here and I have yet to be disappointed. Check in was friendly and fast. I even received a coupon for a discounted breakfast being that I was a Red Lion member upon check in.... More

The first room we were assigned had not been cleaned properly.....there was sand in the tub and the toilet wasn't up to par. No problem though as Eli quickly got us another room. It was large and had a balcony which I enjoyed for the fresh air. It was great not having to leave the premises. The food was good... More

We had a great time at the hotel/casino. The employees went out of there way to make us feel welcome. It had been 2 years since we'd been through Elko and this was our first time staying at the Red Lion. We're glad that we stayed and will do it again in a heart beat. The hotel was very clean...

Here's the skinny--if you need a clean and remodeled room, this place is great for the area. The pictures of the rooms are accurate. The pictures of the exterior are also accurate--it's an old building. What's the downside? Checking in is quite annoying if you don't enjoy the smell of smoke. After just five minutes at the front desk, my... More

Travis, thank you for letting people know that we hit a home run with a clean remodeled room! A substantial portion of our clientele do smoke and we are challenged on ways to mitigate the odor. Our apologies to you and your family. Glad to hear that your stay was otherwise good. Thanks again, Travis. More

I've been staying in Elko at the Red Lion 3 days a month for two years or so. Crystal, the Front Desk Manager has helped me numerous times and many times saved the day for me. Her friendly yet professional manor is the main reason I stay at the Red Lion. Thanks. Steve Stansfield, Wendover Nevada

We just spent a weekend at the Red Lion in Elko,NV. We had a great time. The room which was a premier king was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and a nice 32 inch flat screen TV. Had fun in the casino and the buffet was good. There is a lot of things to do in and around Elko.... More

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...
