My main complaint for this motel is the poor quality of their mattress's. They were very thin and hard as a rock. Cleanliness was borderline average. Sheets seemed a little worn out and the toilet had a ring around the bowl. Other than those two items, the room looked ok. If it wasn't for the mattress, I could give this... More

Don't judge a book by its cover! Whilst it looks rough on the outside we were surprised to find inside a fully renovated motel room on the inside. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, it had all the amenities required. The television was huge. A surprising package!

Just wanted a bed on a long trip. Weird set up where you walk into a empty tiled place through an unlocked door to reach your room. People hung out in this "lobby" and talked at night. The only window to the alley behind the hotel was too small for a large person to fit through in case of a... More

The room was updated, pleasant, and very clean. Rooms are away from the road and very quiet. The front desk was friendly and helpful. It is hot in Elko and the AC was quiet and efficient. For a quick stop over or a few days, the price is great.

Older motel on the main drag. This place doesn't look great from the street but the room was clean and the bed was good. The staff was very helpful. When I was there, parking was a bit full but I suspect this is not always the case.

A bit of a surprise. Booked this based on online reviews as a good budget place for roadies...Doesn't look fab from the outside, but the room was quite good. 50's-60's decor, bath needs updating but was clean. King bed was comfortable and the big screen tv was excellent. wifi, ok, if bit slow. Parking right in front of the room... More

Traveling through Elko we needed a place to rest and spend the night! We found the Budget Inn to be a great respite from a day spent driving through California and Nevada. Clean, quite, with nearby restaurants and a great value for he money. We will stay there again next time we are in the neighborhood.

The good reviews are accurate. Clean, quiet and very,very safe. New bathroom and big tv are nice touches. Clean bed linens and comfortable bed. Bedspread and carpet clash but that is just aesthetics. I will stay here again. Really good price and though it is not as fancy as one of the big chains it has all you need for... More

The kindest motel owner I've ever met! You will be treated well here! My car broke down in Elko; Mike kindly drove me to meet a 3:00 AM train home! Room was exquisitely clean and welcoming . I can highly recommend a stay at Budget Inn Elko?

It is just a basic roadway hotel, a bit old school but was very clean and quiet. Reminds me of the old highway motels with central parking area. The room had been remodeled with new tile and paint. For an economical night it worked great.
