Was there for only one night, but I wish I had that all over the US. Absolutly nice and very, very clean room. Good food for fair prices and all staff is extraordinary. I didn't use the pool, I was too tired, but is was still open looked fine.

This used to be the Best Western Gold Country Motor Inn, and I stayed there a number of times in the '00s while driving on I-80. It was very friendly, well-kept, and had nice rooms. Then it dropped the Best Western affiliation, becoming just the Gold Country Inn, and standards declined. Now it is called America's Best Value Inn (check other sites), which is a low-end budget hotel chain, and the property has declined further. My latest stay will be my last. The room did not appear to have been refurbished since the early '00s, worn carpet, and everything smelled of smoke, especially the lobby area which is smokier than any casino in Reno or Vegas. Whew. The desk and housekeeping people are nice, but it's under new management, which appears to have lower standards than the previous.

I went on a tight budget trip with my girls, and through Priceline.com I reserved a room and prepaid it. Somehow, tragically, I wrote the wrong date in. I showed up on March 17th, and was told my reservation was for the 16th. The hotel was in no way busy, but they would not honor my paid stay by offering me a room for the night. A simple error cost me $79. I wrote to Priceline.com to complain and see if my "trip cancellation" fee of $5 would help. Priceline was of no help, either. I am appalled by both the hotel and the booking agency, and don't recommend either of them.

I've stayed here before and the problem with internet service is an old issue they choose not to fix. I stay in building C and get fair service; but, it disconnects with no easy fix.
Also, diesel trucks in parking lot start early and make a lot of noise. Staff is very nice. The internet showed one or two bars at best. I heard another guest express the same concern to the front desk. I'd rather stay at the nearby hilton, but they're usually booked.

My wife and I found dried vomit on the carpet and also inside the supposedly clean sheets in the bed. I'm not a worldwide traveler or anything, but I was stunned. The manager offered us a new room but also acted the whole time like we had puked and somehow magically caused it to dry instantly. Needless to say, we couldn't bring ourselves to stay there that night, even though nothing else in town was available. We'd been on the road for 11-12 hours already, but headed on another 1 1/2 hours just to get out of Elko. You couldn't pay me enough to stay in this place every again.

Stopped in Elko on our way to Reno, got a room for one night. After getting to our room and got settled in, we went up to the front desk and book the room for a second night. Outside door on 1st floor, large clean room, big bathroom with bright lights in bathroom. Coffee pot, microwave and frig. in room.

Front desk was friendly, room was comfortable, casino was nice to me, what more can I say. I can say this was our first experience of sharing a 2 bedroom suite with my sister-in-law. Both bedrooms had their own thermostats so we could each control our own area. It was very comfortable and since we are all family, private enough.
