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

Just stay away from this place. I stayed at the Whispering Elms this summer during a visit to Great Basin National Park. It is really a run-down trailer park and I don't know why anyone would stay there to camp when the beautiful park is just 6 miles away. We were unable to bring camping equipment with us on this...

This place is great! Cliff and jen are the sweetest. Couldn't have asked for more! Great people, great drinks, great laughs! A quaint oasis in Nevada that you must stop at to say hi to the friendly locals. Highly recommended stop!!!!!

Baker Nevada is remote which makes Great Basin National Park a good visit. There are no crowds like you'd see in Yellowstone or Yosemite. Being remote, Baker has only a couple options for where to stay. Whispering Elms is a decent place to stay. The rooms are clean and functional. The decor is a dated looking it like it was... More

Great place to stay when visiting Great Basin! Stayed in the motel last night and again tonight. Rooms are a bit dated (Quaint) but clean and comfortable. For the price they are perfect. The RV Park has nice shady elms, Chuck does a great job and is happy to help. Great to find a place where the manager really cares... More

I have stayed at this motel several times. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. This is the perfect destination spot if you're hiking and exploring the park and want to come back and relax. I'll keep coming back to this little piece of paradise out in the desert and I recommend it to travelers and hikers... More

We had to cut our stay short because of the cockroach problem. The room is not clean, has a musty smell. On our first day, we saw a cockroach on the floor. The second night my husband pulled the bed cover and there was a cockroach in our bed! After that we couldn't wait to get out of there. We... More

I'm giving 3 stars because I realize there are so few places to stay near Great Basin, and the location is great for that purpose. I do take exception with other reviewers that the rooms are quite clean. We stayed 8/11 & 8/12 in room #6 and I would not classify it as "clean". The dresser next to the bed... More

We spent one night here and found it quite adequate for our needs. It's difficult to rate this place because it's in the middle of nowhere with few other choices so by that standard, it's a great place to stay - but if you were to move it into another location, it might not compare as well. But the room... More
