I stayed here with friends for one night. It was comfortable and well appointed. The room was clesn, bed comfortable. I'd definitely stay h er E again. Take time to look at all the sculptures. Food at Margarita was okay. Expect no choice on the free drink if you order a Margarita.

We were a little hesitant to check into a casino hotel. So glad we stopped. The rooms are so well equipped with the bed and tile floors. And Sandi at the front desk remembered us and said hi when we went to get dinner. The free margaritas were good and the Mexican restaurant was excellent! We loved all of the... More

This is a nice, updated motel loaded (inside and out) with cool art and other objects. The room was clean and fresh smelling (you can't count on that some places) This was was a good base to explore the area around too. I did like that the restaurant was right there after long days outside. The food was variable and... More

Great hotel for the price!! I picked to stay at this hotel just bc of the reviews on TripAdvisor. It doesn't dissapoint. As I had left my pups at home I can't comment on the cleanliness or the accommodations for pet rooms,(I do know there's a courtyard for you to walk your babies tho!) Our room was awesome... 2 queen... More

Stopped one night on way to AZ. Nice, updated, quiet rooms. Slots in house. Not a lot of rooms. Rooms had microwave and fridge and flat screen tv. Not a mega place. Had kind of a homey feel. Would stay again if in the area.

We traveled from Spokane, WA to Las Vegas with our 100 lb. furry "child". This motel went way beyond pet "friendly"! The room even had a large doggie bed, treats on the counter, poop bags, and adorable pictires of cats and dogs on the wall. Our dog felt very special to have her own motel bed.

If you travel off the beaten path, and end up in Ely, this is the place to stay. The room had everything you could want....frig, microwave, safe, desk, charging station etc. etc. The casino was nice to play in. Very friendly staff. Cheaper and way nicer that any chain hotel that we stayed in.

Plenty of good parking and the room was excellent. Very modern rooms and a welcome surprise. Really liked the furnishing and the modern flare even though it was unexpected given the outside rustic miner decor. Nice simple casino. Very worthy place to spend the night.
