Room quality about $80+ but we got the room for just about $48 on booking.com. Nice desk staff and furniture. Spacious room. Downsides: misty, fogged window glass and badly torn window screen. Light bulbs very dim; hard to see. Also pretty loud; close to the freeway.

Our family (2 adults, 2 kids) routinely stays in Elko as we travel from California towards Colorado, and we've tried numerous motels in the city over the years. The High Desert Inn was, for this trip, the very best of all. The staff was very friendly, the rooms very clean, the beds were OK, and the location was perfect. We... More

We made a quick overnight stop here after driving from Billings to Elko and spending a good chunk of the day in Yellowstone. It was a long but great day! The room was adequate although a little outdated; perfectly fine for a quick overnight stay. we did not have time to use any of the amenities.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Glad we were here for your stop over. Many east/westbound guests find Elko to be the perfect place for an evening stay before heading out the next morning.

I've spent a lot of time at the high desert hotel. For the most part the rooms were clean, the beds nice and the employees were all very nice. At one of my stays some of the rooms were getting renovated. It was a bit noisy but of course that's out of the hotel's control. When I went back awhile... More

I have stayed at the High Desert Inn on numerous occasions. I've always found the room to be clean and comfortable. A particular amenity that I appreciate is the abundance of electrical outlets. I have stayed in places where I had to really hunt to find a place to plug in my computer. I've stayed at more expensive hotels in... More

had a great stay here. room was clean, amenities in room was more than I expected. staff is very friendly and professional. the only drawback was the pool and hot tub was closed all day for cleaning, as I can understand the need to clean them it would still be nice if they would open them in the evening.
