This casino/hotel is touted as a historic / motorcycle-traveler friendly place to stay. The historic part is very correct, they have a lot of memorabilia, pictures and exhibits. Staff was not too friendly. Cigarette smoke permeates the rooms, even the supposedly non-smoking ones. Rooms are pretty small and are dated.
Great hotel. Rooms were a good size. Bed was comfortable. Great area to explore. We spent the whole day in Ely. Ending the day with a train ride. This is a great location for all the adventures. The mural walk is right along the Main Street. The free breakfast was from the Dennys in the lobby.
Took a gamble and so glad I did. Stayed in a refurbished Queen room. Small but perfect with a great Main Street view. The small Casino was FUN, the staff was amazing and Denny’s offered a complimentary breakfast with our stay. Would visit again!
After all the reviews, I was a little worried to stay here and even debated switching hotels. In the end, I am glad I stuck with the Hotel Nevada. It is an older hotel, the rooms are small, and some things are outdated. That being said, it was a cute older hotel and the beds were incredibly comfortable! We were on the top floor and all was quiet. The free breakfast at denny's is a nice addition to the stay. I would stay again.
I stayed in the "Hank Thompson" room. Small with only a coffee maker. The bathroom was really tiny. Obviously, people were smaller a century ago! When I last stayed here about twenty years ago, I had a larger and much nicer room. The elevator is very slow. The on-site restaurant is now a Denny's. Unless you're early, expect to park off-site. HVAC was OK, though. As was noise. Not really ADA-friendly as there's not power-operated doors. The building exterior by what little parking there is on-site is in need of maintenance. Great people at the front desk. Also, a shout to a maintenance guy named "Rex" who helped me get my luggage cart through the doors by the parking lot. Much appreciated. If you're thinking about staying here thinking that it's been updated internally, you could be disappointed. This is an historic hotel in dire need of TLC. There is much that can -and should be- done to provide a good experience without losing the historic character of the building. Until that happens, I'll be staying elsewhere next time...…
Hotel Nevada and Gambling Hall in Ely was a pleasant little gem in the old part of town. We chose this location because we are traveling with our two pups. After doing a search on the BRINGFIDO App, we ended up picking this location. They are pet friendly and allow 2 dogs for a small fee of $15 total. The only issue pertaining to the dogs is that even though there are several open areas and parks within walking distance, there are no fenced in areas where you can just let your pups wander about freely. However, all of the staff we dealt with were dog friendly! They wanted to give them treats whenever we walked by the check-in counter! The interior of the hotel contains so many unique displays of antique items, historical photos and animal mounts such as elk, deer and ram. They definitely put their own touch in decorating! When you enter, unfortunately, you’re greeted by the obnoxious odor of cigarette smoke. If you are non-smokers, like us, this is definitely a negative! Good new though, smoking is not permitted in the rooms, so, once you get to your room, you escape the smoke. (Except the remnants of it on your hair and clothes.) The rooms are smaller than modern hotel rooms, but it was plenty for us. They’ve kept it pretty original. Wish I had gotten a pic before we made ourselves at home. The four-post bed was a little squeaky but the mattress was comfortable. You get a choice of real flat pillows or real fluffy pillows. It was surprisingly quiet and even though our room looked out onto the main street, we really did not hear any street noise. Nor did we hear any of our neighbors next to or above us. Complimentary items in the room were numerous!(coffee, bottled water, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, facial wipes) Although it is very obvious that it is a really old hotel. It’s really run down, but it was clean and smelled fresh. It would be a lot of fun to refurbish the rooms one at a time but still keeping the historical feel. With our booking, we received two free drink tickets for a beer or margarita. We also got two free breakfast vouchers (Original Grand Slam and coffee) for Denny’s, which is located inside of the hotel. The Denny’s is no longer open 24 hours though. The wait staff advised that it was due to the changes they made during COVID. Could eventually get back to normal when people decide they want to work again! We would stay here again. Lots of friendly people! Lots of character! And the price was reasonable. ($95.34 a night plus the $15 for our pups)…
I have stayed here several times in the last few years. it is not bad for an old historic hotel. generally the rooms have been updated and have a work coffee maker, bedside lamps etc. This room did not have any amenities. The coffee maker didn't work, the bed squeeked and the the bathroom definitely needed a refresh (I passed on the shower). But the real problem with the room is that the hotel sign is right outside the window. Even with the blinds shut the flashing lights illuminates the room all night long. The hotel is not bad for an overnight, but avoid room 307!
Definitely an older hotel but that also is part of the charm. On the positive side rooms were clean with a kurig. Sort of meet to see a few names of famous past guests from the long past. Comes with a evening drink and breakfast coupon for dennys On the negative impossible to get the room dark, the neon lights from outside came through the top of the curtain and lots of road noise. Would I recommend, probably not
Left Vegas to get out of 4th of July traffic. Hotel Nevada was a great price. Can’t beat it. Denny’s was a plus. Love the king size bed. Thank you! We would stay again! Clean casino. Close to other casinos and restrauants. People were really friendly and helpful. Free parking out back of hotel.
The hotel is historic, built in 1929. There are a few historic things like the seal etched into the entry way floor and the stars on the walkway outside the hotel that are cool and worth seeing. I’m not a casino fan, so having to walk through a dark, depressing, smoky casino to get to the room is a negative for me. There is one extremely slow elevator, but we were only on the 2nd floor so we took the steep staircase and walked down the hallways filled with old pictures/posters from the era, along with exposed wires that had me concerned about fire hazards. Room experience varies by room as some appear to be updated and others are not. We stayed in a small, pet friendly room that was not updated, but thankfully did not smell of smoke. Plush, dark green carpet, stained ceiling tiles in bathroom, older fixtures in tiny step-up bathroom, wallpaper border and thin windows that allow traffic noise. No fridge or microwave, but there is a Keurig w two coffee pods. No wall outlet in the bathroom, but the clock on one nightstand has 4 USB ports. There is a sign that says due to the age of this historic 1929 building the water can change suddenly from hot to cold. The tiny red square tiles on the bathroom floor appeared original and were the kind of “historic” experience I was expecting the rooms to be built around. Bed was a bit soft, saggy but still comfortable, wall A/C unit worked well and there is a small flat screen tv with cable. WiFi is excruciatingly slow. The room and hotel just seemed more old, dank and depressing than historic. Parking lots behind the building seemed sketchy, we lucked out and were able to move our car to on-street parking that was more lit in the front of the hotel. We saved $60 from the much more accommodating LaQuinta in town, but after the $15 pet fee, savings of $45 were not really worth it to me and I’ll stay in LaQuinta for my next hiking pass through. If you stay, I’d suggest trying one of the updated rooms as that may be a better experience.…
