Once again, we had a very nice time at this older motel property. You have a refrigerator and microwave in your room. A/C a little noisy but works well. Bed comfortable and room large. TV pulls in quite a few channels. We were able to watch college football on Sat. and NFL games all day Sunday into the night game.... More

We visited Great Basin NP, planning to stay at the park Lodge (NOT!). There is no lodge. We started checking alternatives - Baker, NV is tiny. The Silver Jack is a small, 6-cabin place that looked attractive - booked up! We couldn't find the Whispering Elm Motel (more in another review). The Park staff recommended the Border for "getting your... More

Located roughly an hour from Ely to the west, an hour & a half from Delta to the east with a whole lot of nothing in between. Gas station, C-store/cafe next door staffed with hard working but smiling faces. A few slot machines if you're so inclined...but better yet, take the drive into Baker and check out the quaint little... More

We had planned to stay in Ely during our visit to Great Basin NP but the travel time back and forth would cut into time at the park. We took a chance on staying at Border Inn and what a nice surprise. While the room was very basic, it was functional, clean and had a small frig. Very convenient having... More

We stopped here to just get a soft drink and a snack, ended up having a sandwich at the bar. Good food, nice friendly owners , plus they have slot machines. We love out of the way places and this definitely fits the bill. Stop by, if you are going that way.

The Border Inn is a tiny oasis that literally straddles the Utah/Nevada border on US 6/US 50 (The Loneliest Road In America). Quaint, clean rooms. All the other essentials for a completely comfy stay. A small convenience store. A restaurant. Fuel. Ice (very hard to find in the desert). And, open 24 hours. This little jewell will be one of...

There are only 2 RV Parks in Baker, NV and we found the best. The Border Inn consists of a RV Park, Motel, Gas station, Restaurant, bar and casino. The RV spaces are wide and long. The restaurant has a good variety of food and it tastes great. All of the wait staff are friendly and helpful. we were in... More

I've paid more to stay in chain budget motels that were worse than this establishment. The room was clean and quieter than expected given that there is some traffic into the gas station throughout the night. The 70's style paneling makes for a quaint experience, as did unfinished wood trim that appeared to be part of a recent remodel. While... More

We got rained out for a day and a half while camping with our 6 1/2 year old at Great Basin National Park. Anyone who has children knows it's absolute torture for everyone involved to be trapped in a 4x4 space with a child for a few hours let alone a day and a half, so we decided to end... More

First off, Devan was fantastic in helping a confused and tired motorcyclist who was on a crazy road trip. Props to him! Been here many times for gas and food, first time ever staying. Prices were higher than expected for being out in the middle of nowhere. The room felt more like a guest room at someone's house than an... More
