4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

For a small place, they had a good variety or machines. Room smelled a little funny, but was very comfortable. Seafood buffet was good, but a little pricey. It is located right off the interstate, so very accessible Overall, nice stay.

This would not be a place I'd like to stay again. The rooms were very far from the casino. The casino well we didn't win anything. Gambled around $1,000 & never even got a bonus to pay more than $40. We just lost & lost without the fun of ever winning. Plus they don't let you have your whiskey separated... More

The room we stayed in at the Red Lion was excellent. It was spacious, well laid-out, comfortable and nicer than some other places that are twice the price. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Elko!!

Well, as with any casino in a small town you might visit, the place is as you would expect. Not much of a gambler, I could do a few slots or table games, but overall, it was just a one night place to stop. Some patrons I saw there were drunk, drug addicts, lonely old men, etc. Definitely not a... More

Located close to the I-80, very nice hotel. Friendly staff. Nice clean room. You can open the windows (with nets). The bathroom is large and clean The pool at the rear of the buildings. Pretty games room at the casino. Finally a place to play next to the casino for teenagers and children - be careful it closes quite early.... More

Stayed in a King Suite and all was very nice with no issues. Ice makers on ever floor / in each building. The max height of hotel is 3 floors and elevators exist in multiple areas, not to far to any room. Other great thing is this chain of hotels is giving a great discount to military and veterans.

We booked through Hotels.com and were told upon arrival that we would be staying in the farthest building because of the way we booked the room. The farthest building (perhaps four football fields in length from the buffets and casino) had no A/C in the hallways and everything, I mean, everything is brown. We booked a smoking room, but the...

We stayed Aug. 6th for one night. The room was ok but way over priced, the food was average at best. The only positive was the staff, they were pretty good. The lounge music is so loud that at the tables it is impossible to communicate with anything but hand signals. The worst part and why I am writing this... More

This was more expensive than most chains in this part of the world. The property has a strange layout with a long wing off of the casino where the rooms are. We had a very long walk with heavy luggage. No evidence of carts to make the task easier. Got coupons at checkin that had no value. Offered gambling and... More

Kate, we are sorry that you didn't find what you expected in our hotel casino. As to the property layout, the hotel was built on a narrow strip of frontage land with one building of rooms, but as the popularity of the hotel grew, the need to expand produced additional buildings that were added to the West of the original...
