Reviewed 11 September 2016

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 stayed 6 nights and only left the Elko Red Lion once. They have it all. From comfortable beds, to great eating, friendly service, all kinds of promotions in the casino, gift shop and great music. We only left the Red Lion once, and that was to go visit their casino across the street, "Gold Country". We experienced the same...

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.

For a small place, they had a good variety or machines. Room smelled a little funny, but was very comfortable. Seafood buffet was good, but a little pricey. It is located right off the interstate, so very accessible Overall, nice stay.

This would not be a place I'd like to stay again. The rooms were very far from the casino. The casino well we didn't win anything. Gambled around $1,000 & never even got a bonus to pay more than $40. We just lost & lost without the fun of ever winning. Plus they don't let you have your whiskey separated...

The room we stayed in at the Red Lion was excellent. It was spacious, well laid-out, comfortable and nicer than some other places that are twice the price. We would definitely stay there again the next time we are in Elko!!

Well, as with any casino in a small town you might visit, the place is as you would expect. Not much of a gambler, I could do a few slots or table games, but overall, it was just a one night place to stop. Some patrons I saw there were drunk, drug addicts, lonely old men, etc. Definitely not a...
