Nice room close to casino. Just what I needed.......not really. The front desk little lady was the best. When we got to our room, we discovered that there was a toilet issue. She apologized and upgraded us to a deluxe room, same price. We got coupons for $5 off the buffet, which wasn't very good except for the briquette. Free...

Had a great experience at this location. The room was top notch and the hotel staff was just as good. Had a king room. Safety was great with locked corridor doors from the adjacent casino after 10pm. Plenty of outside parking lot lighting gave peace of mind too. Plenty of surveillance cameras too. As for the room. Extremely quiet. New...

I don't know why the reviews of this place are so good. Our room was a dump... it smelled bad, the furniture was worn, the towels smelled of bleach, the AC hardly worked, the bed sagged and the place looked it might have been a nice hotel... in 1957! We were only there one night but it was a long...

We are sorry that you didn't have the best stay with us. We have a group of rooms that are more heavily discounted due to the fact that they haven't been refurbished yet. We do have tiered rates for rooms that are closer to the casino too. The next time you are in Elko, please ask to see our premium...

Awesome place to stay. Good food and a great sports bar. Really clean place. And the balcony really added to the ambience. Very helpful staff. We didn't have a reservation but were able to get a room anyway.

We visit the Red Lion each time we do our road trip from Colorado to California to visit our family. We actually stayed twice this time (Aug and Sept), once going out and again on our return trip. The rooms are large and have refrigerators and microwaves. The beds are comfortable and quiet. The entire property is kept very clean....

Wife and I traveling through stopped and played blackjack and some slots. The place was clean, a little smoky, but ok. They had spotless bathrooms and a drink runner brought us refreshments while playing. From what I can see, the Red Lion is the only true Casino in town. Had craps, blackjack and roulette as well as a poker room....

Besides it being in the middle of nowhere this wasn't a bad stop. Room was clean, breakfast was good, and it wasn't smokey like a lot of casino hotels. I wouldn't hesitate to book again when in the area.
