Like most casinos, this one is unbearable due to tobacco smoke. Nice casino, good machines, but I had trouble talking and my throat was sore, along with sinus headache after a few hours on the floor. Why does the Gaming Community continue to allow this proven health hazard to exist? With so many smokers, it's actually encouraged as the beleaguered smoking community thrives on the wanton practice and strength in numbers actually emboldens smokers to be as unbearable to non-smokers as possible.

I'm sorry about the smoke, Daniel, but as you've said, we have very little control over the gaming community's regulations. I hope you won't hold this us against us, as we do everything we can to provide a clean, healthy environment to play.

Best,

I travel extensively for work and spend approx 125 nights a year in hotel rooms around the world and do come to Elko regularly for business. The Red Lion is a great place to stay. The rooms are large and nicely appointed and almost every room has a balcony. I enjoy being able to step outside for a second in the morning and have my coffee. The beds are very comfortable and each room has a refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. All the TVs are flat screens. The rooms are always very clean. Thefront staff is great and have always made me feel at home and have tried to accommodate all my requests with a smile and goal of helping me. Its nice to walk out the door of my room and have all the amenities the Red Lion offers from a newly renovated Starbucks, 24 hour coffee shop which has good food, I eat there regularly, a high end restaurant and of course a casino its Nevada. They have a nice pool and gym. Overall great value for the money and a great place to stay.

With 3 of us sharing a room for one nite, our room was quite large. Beds were very comfortable and room was very clean. The refrigerator and microwave were nice to have as we were traveling with one pet. Room was remarkably quiet. We liked the food and service in the coffee shop and nice to have a Starbucks to get a good cup of coffee. We stayed in many hotels on our 14 day trip, and Red Lion was by far the best quality and value for the price. Will definitely stay there again.

Nice hotel, room was large, bed was comfortable. The hall way had a stale cigarette smell do to guest smoking in the hall way but my room did not have a cigarette smell at all. Shower head needs to be cleaned as it had hard water build up on it so the shower head did not work very well. Nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Will stay there again. Had a had time with the back door as the room key would not always unlock the door.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for a room as far from the casino as you can. Do not eat the buffet at the restaurant. The meat was cold and the food was not very good. service at the restaurant was ok but nothing to brag about.

You will always be guaranteed a quality and high value for the price experience at the Red Lion Hotel and Casino in Elko, Nevada. Their Coffee Shop Buffet will surpass any expectation. As a resident of Elko, but a native of New York City and traveled to 52 countries of the world, I can honestly say that "You can search the world over and not find a better experience or bang for the buck!" The food servers, cleanliness and ambience are remarkable.

Room Tip: I am a resident of Elko so have never stayed in a room. I have never heard a negative word in some 25 years.
