Everything was good and quite. Room was clean, had a micro and fridge. Got some good sleep. We were on the first floor and the room did not have the non-smoking symbol on the door but there was no smoke smell. I would stay there again except for loosing money at the casino.

When we take road trips from CA to CO, we always stay a night each way at the Red Lion Inn in Elko, NV. Easy access to Hwy 80. Good value (use your AAA card for savings). The rooms are very spacious and quite comfortable for sleeping our family of four with two kids under 10. And for what it's... More

We always stay here when traveling east. The food is great. The rooms are very nice. Staff is friendly. Usually win at slots. The only thing that happened was that the smoke alarm started beeping at 3 in the morning but it was no huge issue (just remember to change the batteries plesae).

We live close but still want too stay in a comfortable setting. We bought two acres in river ranch but still stay in your motel and go back and forth too feed animals, and drive back too our great motel room. People are so nice.

I stayed here for work. The room was comfortable but the clock was broken and the MP3 cord did not work. That was not awful just a little irritating as I like to listen to my IPod when I sleep. Especially with the room facing the busy street....it was a little noisy. The food was great and the service was... More
