Very nicely decorated and clean rooms. Staff is somewhat friendly, some are, some not, but that's normal for any hotel. Casino is terrible though, would suggest going elsewhere. Didn't try the food here, wish we would have.

My daughter and I were driving back to California from Boulder, CO and needed a place to stay for the night. I made a reservation at this hotel because it was such a good price and the reviews were very good. I was skeptical at first because it is also a casino, but the rooms are not actually inside the...

I usually stay at a different national chain, but the folks at Gold Country Inn have stolen me away from my usual. For good reason. 40% less per night, spacious rooms so clean they are ready for military inspection. They have a slight western decor, not the usual cookie cutter boring room. Staff is very friendly, super supportive and knowledgeable... More

Nice hotel, clean and roomy. The standard room is spacious and clean. There is some road noise but not terrible. If you are looking an inexpensive place to stay on your journey through Elko this is the place. It has a clean pool and workout room. There are restaurants and a casino, but I couldn't tell you about them as... More

Very nice place! Clean with all the amenities including coffee pot, refrigerator. Nowadays not all the hotels have coffee pots and refrigerators. Reasonably priced with coffee shop near by. We will try and stay here whenever we come to Elko which will be often because we have family here.

I would recommend this hotel for the huge non-smoking room w/2 queen sized beds. It was nice and clean, was able to park right outside room. Very nice young lady at check in. We're not gamblers so I can't say much about the casino. I was able to book the room in the road through TripAdvisor for a good rate... More

The casino and restaurant are in a separate building on a corner of the property. This made for quiet rooms. The rooms were clean and pleasant although furnishings were not modern. Check in was smooth and value for the price was good. It was obviously just a short walk away for food.
