Advertised as a Lodge, in conjunction with the Casino. A"Home way from home." It is called a resort destination. Couldn't be further from the truth. Advertised as a nonsmoking room. The smell was overpowering. It was across the street from the casino,, and was dirty, drink rings on the bedside stand, the bed was hastily made. Bedspread on crooked, sheets... More

Advertised as a "casino resort" is a blatant misinterpretation. There is no resort...the "lodge" is across the street and is one of the worst places I have been. The swimming is non functional, TV's are old digitalis, rooms smell, soap was left in the tub, no updates have been made in years...except they do have a very good wifi. I... More

My wife & I stopped here for lunch at their coffee shop. Had a very good waitress and the food was pretty good. I had a chicken sandwich, and my wife had a french dip. Service was a little slow, but they were very busy.

I stayed at El Capitan 3 nights, mid October 2013. Maybe the scorching negative reviews had some positive effect. My room was simple and clean - towels, sheets, etc. The coffee maker, TV, and heater all worked and the little coffee packets were resupplied. The walls are a bit thin, I could hear showers coming on in the morning. I... More

You don't want to stay here. The carpets looked like someone changed their oil on them. I don't think they were cleaned since General Custer lost at the Little Big Horn. The air conditioner rattled, the so-called drapes were ready to fall off. The 19" TV was hardly viewable. The little refrigerator had been left open for some time. It... More

This place makes me embarrassed to say that I’m a Hawthorne native – born, raised & educated there. Left 50 years ago upon graduating from High School. Was back in town this week for Armed Forces Day 2013 and made the mistake of staying here. To say it’s dirty & filthy is an understatement. The entry door (knob, casing &... More

Our room was not clean. When we checked in the beds was not made we had to call them and all they did was come in and made the beds. They did not clean at all. We had hair in the tub abd floor in the bathroom. I called them and all they said was more or less to bad.... More

We're into motorcycle touring and Hawthorne just happens to be a good distance for stop-over travel to other locations, As a result, we've stopped at El Capitan several times over the past 10 years. Never again. I've stayed at a lot of remote locations, I'm not real picky and I understand that businesses sometimes struggle financially. But lack of money... More

There is neglected. There is run-down. There is gross. Then there is El Capitan. This could be, in my 44 years of life, the most disgusting motel I have ever stayed at and this includes getting blacked-out drunk on the eve of my wedding night and winding up alone at a pay-per-hour hotel. The floors and carpets, covered with a... More

This hotel / motel is badly in need of an update. Rooms had stains on the carpets and odd layouts. Decor was broken down 60's and 70's. Odd sized bathrooms and very old hard wear. Pros were: Central location in town. With the Casino next door it was easy to get coffee and food in the morning.
