The Border Inn is a decent spot to spend a night but nothing fancy. Its biggest asset is the close proximity to the Great Basin NP. There is plenty of room for parking your vehicle, and the gas station is almost a necessity as there aren't that many gas stations around in that area. The restaurant is alright but -...

Since it is the only place around it seems there is no incentive to be anything more than a place to sleep. No pool, no wi-fi, no breakfast. It is overpriced for what you get, but if you need a room in the area, what can you do? The room was clean, it smelled like cleaning supplies, the shower spigit...

It's not the most luxurious place by a long shot but for an area so far from everywhere it's great.The room was clean, the beds were comfortable after a long day hiking and the staff really nice. There was a fire in the park while were there but the folks still took great care of us even as they were...

We ended up at the Border Inn by accident. We'd booked another nearby motel to go to Great Basin and at the last minute, they realized they were overbooked, so they put us here. It's a complex on the border, with the motel in Utah and the gas station, restaurant, and casino in Nevada. We had dinner and drinks in...

Stayed here in an RV in July 2016. It is seriously NOTHING more than a dirt parking lot behind the general store/diner. Check in/register at the store counter. There is absolutely no shade. It is full hook ups, however, the moment we turned on the water to the RV - it clogged up our water filter. We had to replace...

This review is for the cafe portion of the Border Inn. After having a not so pleasant experience with another local restaurant last night, we decided to give the Border Inn Cafe a try. There aren't many places to eat in this area and most of those places are, shall we say, dives. With that in mind, this place was...

The Border Inn is a small spot of life in the Great Basin Desert. The rooms are older but very well kept. There was no Wi-Fi in the room, I had to go to the bar to get online. I wasn't expecting much here, but my stay was better than expected. It is a little crazy that you have to...

Knowing this place is just a spot on the "Loneliest Road in America", I didn't have high expectations. The rooms are spacious. The bed was a bit creaky, It had A/C, but the room had a musty smell to it. It was an okay place to rest along the way. The internet was never working while we were there. It...

A dump, albeit a clean dump. Wifi does not work at all. We never got a connection in two days and were told "we have trouble getting a signal out to the rooms". Really? Yet you advertise free wifi. The wifi didn't work in the restaurant, either. A/C in the room is incredibly loud. Our room key only worked when...

Spent June 25th and 26th at the Border Inn. As other reviews have said better than expected. Visiting my son that is interning at Great Basin NP, we chose the Border as the reviews were okay. Clean and modest hotel. Nothing fancy. Very dated decor, lighting in bathroom for applying make-up wasn't great. Door didn't fit jamb well, had some...
