The lobby is modern, well decorated and smells great. But the second floor hall is disappointing, it looks like another hotel ... there is a strange and unpleasant smell, old wallpaper and the lamps are too white, not cozy. Room 212 is the same problem. The fitness room and hot tub are great. My only suggestion: update the wallpapers... It will make a considerable difference

The lobby looks inviting. The rest looked dirty, including the room. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room, but it smelled a lot like smoke. The front desk said it was probably because of people smoking in the stairwells. Their stairwells had lots of cigarette butts and were filthy. They gave me a different room, but it smelled even worse.

I stayed at the High Desert Inn recently on a business. I found that it was a basic, no frills, hotel. The room was basic, generic, clean and quiet considering it's proximity to the freeway. There is an indoor pool and spa that I didn't get a chance to use along with a basic fitness room and business center with two computers. The property could use an update and I found that the wi fi was totally inadequate for my needs, but if you are looking for basic accommodations, this would be a good fit for your needs.

The gentleman who checked us in was very polite and professional. Lobby looked descent. We stayed in rum 329 and it was a normal room. Very outdated. Smelled like they used a ton of cheap air freshener in the room. We could smell faint cigarette smoke. I think it used to be a smoking room and still can smell it a little, not bad. This hotel is close to the freeway, and there is an Albertsons and fast food across the street.There is a pool and workout room, but we didn't use them.

Nice room with very comfortable beds. Very clean and great ventilation. Very quiet. The only criticism which we both thought was very minor was the television was small and a bit dated. I would recommend staying here. Thank you for your helpful vote.

I’m really sorry to this about your experience with the High Desert! I assure you the staff was not discriminating, I do not have an explanation of their actions but I will have a talk with the manager about this. They should have made you a reservation or directed you over to Red Lion or at our other sister property, Gold Country! I assure you this won’t happen again if you stay with us next time!

Was driving back to California from Idaho, pulled into Elko, Nevada and needed a hotel. Hotels.com had the High Desert Inn special rate at $39 plus tax. Turns out I recognized hotel once inside that I had stayed there before in 1979 when it was a Holiday Inn. Considering its age, the hotel has definitely been kept up and is as nice or nicer than many newer brand name properties. I was only doing a single night, but lobby, hotel room and decor all up to date. Recommend it if driving the I-80 corridor between Idaho or Utah and California.

I keep thinking that High Desert will improve only to be disappointed once again. The hallways and stairways are always filthy. I ask for a quiet room and was given one next to elevator. There was a group of guys doing a tailgate type party (grilling and drinking in the back of their truck) in the parking lot. I have never seen that and have travelled a lot. The lights in the room are not bright enough so I could not check to see if the bed sheets were clean. The only good thing about this hotel is the rate. I will be staying somewhere else when back in Elko. There are plenty of other options.

Sorry you were disappointed, Sara. High Desert is a favorite for the mine workers and mine support teams who like to stay for weeks on end. They are usually quiet and keep to themselves as they work very hard and like to have a nice quiet stay when they are in the hotel. We do try and keep the hotel clean, safe and comfortable. It sounds to me like you caught us on an off day. As you noticed, we have remodeled the front desk area and will be making our way through the property improving as we go. If you're truly against staying with us again, maybe try the Red Lion across the street. It is the most established hotel in Elko and has the most amenities in town. There is also the Gold Country across the street from the Red Lion. It is a local's favorite for the food and a popular stop over for the travelers.

Previous reviews gave the Desert Inn 3-stars. NOT OUR ROOM! It was not clean! We spent some time at the beginning making sure that the sheets had been changed. Clearly, one bed had been changed. That became my wife's bed. I slept in the other, neither of us ever sure.

I stayed here one night due to the proximity of the location and reasonable room rate. Unfortunately I paid for my room before checking the place out. Even though they advertise non smoking rooms, the whole place smells like a cigarette factory. The carpeting in the halls and elevator looks worse than a fraternity house. There were also problems with other occupants making loud noise and playing a boom box late in the evening interfering with my ability to sleep. The rooms facing the street are very noisey. There must be better places to stay in Elko.

Mr. Farrer, we are sorry the room and hotel were not to your liking. As to the noise in the hotel, we do have 24 hour security. A call to the front desk would have dispatched a security officer to address the noise issues. Again we are sorry for the issues you mentioned. We will work hard to address those problems....
