This is an RV campground/bar with a strip of motel rooms. The motel room was basic, but it was clean and well-equipped and the price was reasonable. There's not much more you can expect in Baker, NV. The room was also quiet. Really, nothing to complain about -- definitely the best place to stay in downtown Baker, NV.

We stayed here in our RV on our way to S. Utah and again on our way back. It is small but well kept up with full hook ups and friendly staff. If you arrive after 4pm you check in at the bar and are greeted by Chuck and Lulu the sweetheart bulldog. No TV but the WiFi is the... More

We needed a place to stay for one night close to Lehman caves. Whispering Elms is a very basic motel, with an adjacent RV park and campground. The motel rooms are in a single, one-storey block. The amenities are few, the furnishings are old, the carpets are dusty, and the A/C did not work. But, the bed was clean and... More

Close to Great Basin NP. Stayed in one of the rooms. Basic, but nice. Walls are paper thin. Good wireless access. Nice and shady. Owners & staff are very nice. Nice location for a quick get away during the off season.

It is always nice to go to a place with friendly staff, and good drinks. The bar tender Chuck makes the BEST Bloody Mary I have ever had!! If you are in the area this is a must stop. Little at a time the place is trying to improve.

We were in town to see the stars at Great Basin National Park. We saw the bar was open and decided to drop in for a beer before heading up in the cold winter night. When we walked in we were greeted by Chuck. Chuck was extremely nice and we talked to him for a long time about the surrounding... More

I wish that we would have made the drive to Ely as there aren't really any decent places in this town. Agree with Jennifer D, is one of the worst motels I have ever stayed in. Baker is a lesser traveled area and offers no chains or real competition, probably cannot support them with the smaller amount of tourist traffic.... More

We parked our trailer there from mid December-mid January, (yes a month), for our hunt, their first winter open. It was perfect. Was it cold, yes. Did the pipes freeze, yes. Did it snow, yes.

Not exactly on the cutting edge for style, but adequate for three nights. I stayed in a motel room and got a good night's sleep each night. The folks in the campground and other units were all nice and quiet. A little more cleaning into the corners of the room would be appreciated, but it was very clean everywhere else.... More
