Overall a nice place. The owners happily shifted our reservation due to some changes in our travel plans and happily welcomed us despite our late check-in. The hotel room is older but comfortable. You're out in the middle of nowhere so don't expect super luxury; be glad you can stay immediately outside of Great Basin NP. Owners were super nice... More

I am a frequent traveler who loves to stay in mom and pop or privately owned small motels. This one is a combination RV park, motel, lounge, bar with laundry on site. I stayed in Rm 2 in the motel section. Nice shade over the parking area(a big plus in the Nevada desert) The decor is dated but the rooms... More

Their motel rooms are comfy and clean, staff was more than helpful. We stop way after dark, bar was already closed but the manager open up to give us the last room of the motel. Room offered a king bed and a pull out couch with a queen bed in it.

There are not a lot of options near Great Basin National Park and this is a good option. The people are really nice. The room is acceptable -- could be a little cleaner and needs some repairs but not bad. Had a little difficulty checking in but after that it was nice.

We had a nice three night visit to this RV park. The facilities are a bit 'retro' but the park, restrooms and showers were very clean. The staff was friendly and pleasant, and worked hard on the grounds every day we were there. There is no grass here (it is a desert!) and the large gravel covering the sites was... More

Staff helpful and lots of fun. High temps ranged from 96 to 103 so we were glad we had the full hookups to run the AC. While facilities are dated, they are very clean. The staff maintains the facilities and run the bar. No food. Worth the stay

We stayed here 3 nights because we couldn't get into the national park campgrounds. This is a very desolate area and is the only other choice to stay in your RV but there are hook-ups and it is very clean. There is also a laundry room, plus showers and restrooms which are all well kept. All in all it was... More

But this worked out great for me for 2 nights while hiking in Great Basin. I had a room in the small motel section. It was quite here and I slept good, my 2 most important requirements. Very basic but it worked. Not many places to eat either. I can recommend T&D (good menu and food) but recommend you pass... More

The campground itself is humble by many standards, but the facility is clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and helpful, and they obviously take pride in their work. Verizon MiFi worked satisfactorily.
