Very clean and beautiful....casino and bar was just a bonus! The people working here are all quite friendly and my family enjoyed the large quiet room. Will definitely stay again but next time a little longer so we can check out the other casinos and restaurants

Decent hotel for the money. Rooms are nice but I found the beds hard for my taste but my kids slept great. Rooms are also quiet. There is a diner type 24 hour restaurant in the casino which was nice because we got there late. The toiletries are fantastic!

We wanted a good place to stop between Reno and Salt Lake on a road trip. The staff members were nice and the room was VERY clean. Far better than I originally expected! There is also a Starbucks inside the hotel which is a plus!

Stopped here on our cross country trip. Very good room. Liked that it had a small casino inside to hit before leaving Nevada. Has restaurants inside also. Kid friendly and a pool. Other casinos nearby. Secure parking.

Great hotel for relaxing, seeing the sights and gaming. Live evening entertainment. Diligent staff, clean rooms and reasonably priced restaurants. This was one 4 day stop in a 45 day vacation covering 7500 miles. It was one of our top three stops on the trip and would recommend others try it.

Our room was clean, comfortable and easily accessible by elevator. There are only two floors in a long wing of rooms stretching away from the casino area. There is no casino noise but since we faced the street, there was occasional road noise from motorcycles and such. Parking was available but not always near the door to our section. A... More

The room was really clean. The location was walking distance to everything. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. There's a restaurant located inside the hotel, For the price (which was high) the room should have had a refrigerator and microwave.

Overall a great hotel. Recently remodeled with new furniture, nice art, re-tiled bath and shower, excellent shower head. Room was spacious and quiet even though we were in the first building off the casino. Some grass available for traveling dogs, a rarity in the desert areas. Best restaurant in town, the Aspen, in the hotel along with a coffee shop,... More

Thank you for your nice review of our hotel & casino. Glad that you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry that Frontier could not resolve the wifi issue for you during your stay. They are pretty much the only game in town but their reliability causes us to hope that Elko will some day gain a much more reliable competitor.... More
