Very convenient for ADULT travelers. The is smoking since this is a Nevada casino The restaurant is good and convenient. Sometimes the halls smell like smoke but if you ask for a non smoking room the room will be ok. Very well lit rooms with lots of space.

Pro's, cheap, large rooms, older but somewhat clean. Con's, this place got pretty good ratings so I thought I would give it a try. If you are a chain smoking gambler I guess it would be paradise. I fortunately do not smoke, this whole establishment smells like stale cigarettes. I got a no smoking room, it smelled like cigarettes really bad, seemed like the hotel staff tried to mask the smell with a perfumed product which just made things worse, after spending time in the suite, I got a terrible headache from the odors. A/C units took forever to cool the rooms down. Toilet tank took 15 minutes to fill. Restaurants in casino had decent food, but again, cigarette smoke ruined the experience for me. I guess I have only spent time in smoke free areas in upper scale casinos. Guess if smoke doesn't bother you, this place wouldn't be a bad place, but for those few of us whom have allergies, it is as miserable experience. This day and age, smoke free establishments are the norm and are taking over for many reasons, mostly health reasons. Hopefully in the future, this casino/hotel will update it's rooms and get with the times and at least make the part of the casino and all of the eating areas 100% smoke free as well as the rooms. Sorry, but it's a disgusting habit.

Clean, fresh, and relaxing spot to tuck in when traveling on I-80, with a cozy dine-in restaurant and full bar (Aspen's). The food was incredible! Room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. They also allow pets and service animals so this is a great place to stop if you are traveling with your pet. Clean outdoor pool located in back of the hotel. Will definitely stay here again!

The Aspen restaurant had a great bar and happy hour. The bartender was fun and very friendly. The casino itself is pretty small, but both my friend and I ended up winning about 4x what we started with playing slots. Haven't been to any other places in Elko, but I imagine this is the best place for a reception.

Really clean room. I liked the Saturday night buffet. About $18, probably pricey for Elko, but the prime rib was the best I've had in a long time. Worth it. Cool live band was playing and I could kind of hear it from my dinner table. I played blackjack for while watching the band play classic rock hits. Fun place. It was like Vegas in 1982. Very friendly front desk team and in the buffet. Chef came out to chat. The prime rib and fried shrimp were great. The salad bar was fresh, but very limited.

Excellent service both our waitress and the guy behind the counter of the buffet. My husband has food allergies one is meat and a other is fruit and sugar combined. He he has fruit he has to wait 6 hours before he can have any thing with sugar in it. Most of the time the fish dishes are prepared with some kind of citrus. The buffet guy offered to cook some fish for him with out the citrus just salt and pepper in a little butter. The food was very good. In Elko we have not found any other places that have salad bars. This place has a nice one.

This place is a great place to stay in Elko. I’m always just passing through, and this hotel beats them all. It’s cheap, clean, and family friendly. You get a choice of smoking or non-smoking rooms. The beds are comfy and well stocked. The TV is a 55”, so much bigger than most other hotels. They have LOTS of outlets and USB hubs, which is abnormal and great compared to most hotels. It’s super close to the freeway for easy and quick access. It’s not far from most major stores and gas stations in town. You don’t have to venture through town just to get here. The casino is nice and the staff is very friendly. I will be staying here again! You should consider it!

Room was clean, well appointed, and comfortable, but beginning to show it's age. Tile in the shower enclosure is missing grout, and beginning to buckle. Be forewarned, if you are over 5'6", you are going to have a difficult time getting an adequate shower, as the shower head is quite low. Biggest problem by far however, is the customer service. Their computer system was down upon check out. Annoying, but it happens. The issue I had was with the manager unable to print off a receipt, and completely unapologetic about it. Even standoffish about it when I asked if corporate would be able to provide one. I was told it would be at the very least "next week sometime."

We had a higher expectation from the reviews and photos presented online. This is suppose to be a 3 Stat hotel. When we arrived the first room we were placed smelled really bad, had dried urine on the toilet seat, mystery white goo on the door, faucet, and toilet handles, mold in the shower, and had stains all over the carpet. When I called up to the front desk to request a different room the woman we spoke with was curt and seemed a bit put off by what we were requesting. Not very customer friendly. I walk down there and was given another room key with not so much as an apology from her. I asked if this room would be clean and was told that it should be. I didn’t care much for her demeanor so I asked to have the manager come down and look at the room. Ellen arrived a few moments later. Very pleasant and seem genuinely apologetic as did her Entourage. (The other night clerk and security). The new “clean room” was not much of and improvement. It also smelled bad, this time of pet urine, was not the at the clean level I would expect from this chain, and had stains on the floor as well. There was a used washcloth in the shower and the furniture and decor is really deteriorated. I feel like they should have paid us to stay here if for nothing else than to bring these issues to the attention of the management as it seems they are not aware of how bad these rooms are. We will not be returning to this run down hotel and I hope that for the sake of this small community that relies on people passing through town for income that they resolve these issues and make it a better place to stay.
