“It's sort of in Baker, Nevada.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Standing in the parking lot looking off in every direction you see NOTHING man made except a black 2 lane roadway. The office is the cash register for the gas pumps, restaurant, convenience store and gift shop. Gasoline was $4.26.a gallon for 85 octane regular on June 17th-19th, 2013.
All that said, you don't have much choice on where you spend a night around Great Basin National Park. We stayed 2 nights in room 17 and managed to stay pretty happy. The A/C was very noisy but it helped drown out any noise coming from adjacent rooms or the parking lot. The room has a gas stove, fridge and microwave. The sink is a small 2 basin which doubles for the bathroom sink. The shower is hot and forceful. Lots of drawer space and a little closet. The double and single beds were acceptable. The sheets and towels were clean and of decent quality. Internet was reliable but very slow.
Food was very tolerable, fresh as possible and reasonable considering where you are. Burgers are good in all varieties, chicken fingers pretty good. Breakfast was good with the sausage patties being excellent!
Staff is very friendly. Prices reasonable. Overall a nice place to lay your head while visiting the area. I'd go there again.

Room Tip: 17 has a stove, microwave and fridge. Also a small kitchen style sink. Lots of drawers and a couple...

The rooms were clean and quiet with wifi and nice hot shower. Best cheeseburger and fries I've had in a long time with reasonable pricing and great staff. The view was wonderful, we sat outside and enjoyed it.

The photos of the rooms are accurate. Its an average road side motel in the middle of nowhere. No trouble with making reservations over phone. Gas station convenient. Ok for a night, but wouldn't want to spend whole vacation here.

We were visiting Great Basin National Park; we are budget travelers and just needed a place to stay for we didn't have camping gear; we came with low expectations. With that said, it was very basic. Most importantly for us, the room was clean. The bed was not very comfortable - the pillows thin. I didn't have much hope for the shower - but in fact it was very clean and in good condition/hot water. The walls are paper thin, but it seemed the crowd here was very mindful of that. We heard the truckers leave early, and then the national park visitors got up an hour or two later.

Would I stay here again? Yes...for a night. It was convenient to Great Basin and was clean. The tv worked fine.

The restaurant next door wasn't special, but it was dinner for us. You did have to walk through a very smokey casino to get to it. The room we stayed in had no smoke at all.

The wifi didn't work well for us in the room - but we did have better success in the restaurant. I suppose it probably just depended on the location of your room. Check in/out is in the gas station portion; we had a small cooler and the boys in the morning we helpful in getting us some ice...if you have a big cooler, they have larger bags available.

Let's face it. If you are traveling in this area you are not out for 5 star luxury. Having read what others had to say, I went with little expectations. What I found was a clean,well run establishment where all employees did every job. The room was dated but the bed was comfortable and all was exceptionally clean. I had trouble figuring out how to put the heat on and a lovely gentleman from the bar left his position and came to show me. When the light bulb burnt out ten minutes later I walked back to the bar to get one. The same bartender offered to put it in for me. I assured him I had it under control. The soup was home made chicken noodle and it was delicious. The food was home cooking, not gourmet, but certainly satisfying. The employees were all helpful and friendly, as were the fellow guests.

Stayed here one night whilst visiting Great Basin NP. There are not a huge amount of hotels to choose from in the area and this was fairly close (although in the middle of nowhere!) to the NP and the rates were ok for what we received. Emailed ahead for the reservation and emails were polite and friendly. Arrived early evening and had a meal in the restaurant at the side of the motel. The waitress was very friendly and attentive and the meal was better than expected and reasonably priced. The room (9) was pretty basic, was at the end of the row so only one guest on one side but we didn;t hear any other guest noise so the room may have been vacant. The bed was very uncomfortable and urgently needs replacing. The room was unbearably hot but we couldn't turn off the thermostat and could only turn it down a notch. Wouldn't have wanted to stay longer than one night but if its just a base you want to stopover then it served a purpose.

Room Tip: Room 9 at end of the strip of rooms so only one guest on one side.

Considering the location and limited alternatives, Border Inn met the requirement of a bed and shower at a reasonable price. Room décor and furniture were dated and no luggage rack was provided. The bed was ok. Food in the adjacent restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
