Although our room was marked "non-smoking", it smelled as bad as if we were in a smoking room. After the first night we asked to be moved farther from the casino and the clerk graciously accommodated our request. That non-smoking room was better, but it smelled bad enough to make it difficult to sleep during the nights and to wake... More

Very comfortable room had a bed that enabled me to enjoy a restful night's sleep. I was in a non- smoking room that was very clean. My room was very large. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with toiletries. The front desk was friendly and efficient. I will definitely stay here again.

This is primarily a casino, but is large enough to have several buildings allowing you to stay away from the noise and smoke of the casino. the rooms are large with comfortable beds. Handicapped parking is rare.

This is my #1 preference when traveling to Elko. The staff is helpful, pleasant and more than accomodating to help me with whatever I need. They even noticed that I had a lot of luggage and gave me a room closer to the elevator so that I wouldn't have to walk as far down the hallway with heavy bags. The... More

The family suite was very comfortable for the 4 of us. It is nice to be able to put the kids down and still have space to ourselves. The room was very clean and the beds were super comfortable. I was impressed to hear the cleaning staff SCRUBBING the bath tub in a neighboring room. We were headed to Yellowstone... More

We were pleased we stayed here again; the room was large, and the bed comfortable, although there is a long walk to the room. The small swimming pool is clean, and although nestled next to the parking area, is pleasant. The main restaurant is great; the café in the casino is just average. The casino area is average.

Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. Glad to hear that you stayed with us again and we very much appreciate that loyalty! The hallways are rather long due to the narrow layout of the property - for a small upgrade amount, you could move closer to the casino and into an executive room. We look forward... More

The room was very clean. Staff were very helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent. Besides the free wifi there were computers and a printer in the business room. Lots of slots. Plenty of free play on the slots. Lots of coupons for free play, table games, beverages, and food. The room was spacious and the bathroom had double... More

The rooms were remodeled, but are once again getting old and dinged up. The room was clean, but the sink drained very slow. I see this a lot though. It seems hotel maids don't report slow drains to the maintenance folks. The gaming machines are average, but several had touch screen problems, and the screens were too blurry to use.... More

Thank you for your review. We apologize for the issues you reported to us and department heads have been notified. I am sorry that one of our bartenders embarrassed you. We do have a problem with people playing minimal amounts and then expecting free drinks. We don't post rules because in most cases, playing guests understand that we can't give... More

Traveling with the grandkids this could not be a better choice. We had the family suite which was perfect with two rooms (king in one and 2 queens in the other) TV's in both rooms, refrigerator, coffeemaking. It was all just excellent and the best hotel stay of our 10 day road trip. Although a casino, it was very kid... More

In fairness, I think if you're the kind of person that frequents small-time casinos you won't see any problems here. But for those of us living on the road this hotel is far below standard. Remember what the world was like 35 years ago? I wasn't around, but this place certainly was and I'm willing to wager that the only... More

I can't tell you how disappointing this review was to read -- while I'm really glad that our fantastic front-desk team pulled it out of the bag, your whole experience should have been five-stars, and I'm sorry it wasn't. I'd love the opportunity to cover a couple of things you highlighted! Cleanliness and comfort are top priorities, so if the... More
