Enjoyed the room, especially the double sinks. The only issue, was I let the water in the shower fun for 7-10 minutes and it still was only lukewarm, so I showered in Lukewarm, my husband then showered and he was able to get hot water in less than 5 minutes, so not saving much water on that room. The bed... More

I have stayed at this property many times and I would always recommend it. It is reasonable in rates, the rooms are first class and the casino is just a fun place to gamble...not too busy and no pressure.

Nice pet friendly hotel. Dated but very well kept and clean. The bed was comfortable, bathroom area is large. Had dinner and a cocktail in the dining room, food was quite good. Will definitely make a point of staying here again with or without our Labrador Retriever.

Been to Elko many times and this was my first stay at the Red Lion. By far the best hotel/motel in town, although also the most expensive. No amenities like breakfast, just some typical casino discount coupons. Room and bed were great.

From the moment you walk in the door,, you know you are in a casino. Smoke hangs heavy in the air, and neon lights from the slots reflect off the mirrored ceiling. Rooms are in one wing, away from the casino, but the smoke follows you down the hallway and into the rooms. There are 'no smoking' rooms; be sure... More

The casino is the biggest and nicest in town. Lots of games we recognized. Recommend the buffet. Made to order steaks on Thursday night. Services was very friendly. Hotel has a star bucks. Rooms were clean. Shower had good pressure. Beds were comfy.

The Red Lion Hotel was a very nice place to stop out in the middle of nowhere. We were traveling to CA from CO and needed a stopping point. We called ahead and were glad we did since the place was booked when we arrived. While on the phone with the agent, we were not asked if we wanted a... More

Room was clean and large. Parking lot was outdoors, free, and sufficient. Microwave and refrigerator was in the room we had in the first floor. At the restaurant we had the salmon with the seafood/wine sauce which was rich, tasty and plenty for two people. There was a live country rock band playing on stage next to the restaurant. We...

Outside of the service provided by the employees, the hotel was not very good. Although they claim to be a non smoking hotel, everything, including the pillows, smelled like smoke. The Cafe food was average and was delivered with hair on the toast. Outside doors were supposed to be secured but weren't. You could also hear the TV in the... More
