Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2014

From the time we checked in until the very day we left, the team at the Red Lion made us feel welcome and like any guest should....special! When asking the staff about activities outside the hotel, they mention there were many historic buildings(commercial Casino..oldest one in Nevada) We enjoyed the oldest and the newest!

Room Tip: Junior executive suites are on the first floor and very accommodating with ammenities

We stay at the Red Lion Hotel & Casino in Elko at least once a month if not more often. We have never had a "bad" room. The employees of the hotel are most friendly and will bend over backwards to fill any request you might have. This follows through in the casino as well. It seems they genuinely enjoy seeing you return. The rooms are always clean and the amenities are good. Between the casino and all the activities in and around Elko, the Red Lion is in the center of it all. We love to visit Elko!

Room Tip: We like the top floor. There is not as much foot traffic.

We had a deluxe room where my wife and dog very much enjoyed our short stay. Eli who checked us in was very professional and got us checked in quickly. it had been a long day of driving and we were tired. We had an excellent meal at the Aspens lounge. All in all, a wonderful time

Room Tip: rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Very quiet.

Unlike a lot of people I really enjoy stopping in Elko Nevada. It stays largely the same, even after 50 years of going through town. But staying there has sometimes been an issue. I've stayed in dives, flea bags and some decent places, but for comfort and convenience I now think the Red Lion Elko is my new stopping point.

We got the family suite. Big, two rooms with 3 queen beds, great linens, clean as could be, great toiletries and quiet air conditioning. Had a Casino in the lobby, that was actually pretty cool, not super sleazy, just the right amount of Nevada charm. There is ONE thing that you have to remember about Nevada: it's a smoking state. That means when you go to a casino, you can smoke. Just get used to it, you'll live. Besides you won't be there that long.

Starbucks in the Casino was great. As was the sports bar. They also have a pool which was nice after a long day.

I will definitely stay there again. DO NOT MISS going to the Star Hotel for dinner! An Elko MUST DO!

Room Tip: pay up, and get the family suite if you are more than two people.

What a nice review, Latham! We are so pleased that you chose to stay with us and we are glad to have a new loyal guest! We are proud of our suites and really ALL of our rooms - and we too enjoy having the Starbucks available for our guests. The Star Hotel is one of Elko's great restaurants. If you haven't tried "The Aspens Bar and Grill" in our facility, you're in for a treat! Let us know the next time you are coming to Elko, Latham and we'll get you set up!

We were pleased we stayed here; the room was large, and the bed comfortable, although the walk to the room was notable. Originally we had a room on the highway side, and the noise forced us to switch to a room on the north side, which was much quieter. The small swimming pool is clean, and although nestled next to the parking area, is pleasant. The main restaurant is great; the café in the casino is just average.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north side are quieter

Large and comfortable room. Friendly front desk service. The casino was so much enjoyable, with all the games and slots you could possibly want. Perfect stopover. Rooms were a tad pricey, but I suppose that is to be expected in a busy town like Elko.

The good-Our room was large and clean. We were on the 3rd floor, but had an elevator. The hotel had lobbies in each building that had access to the front and back parking lots. The front parking lots were full but we had plenty spaces in the back. The restaurant had pretty good food with generous portions. The bad-if you don't want to breathe second hand cigarette smoke, don't go to the casino. The cigarette smoke in the casino was choking. Also, our bed had a blanket that was sandwiched between 2 sheets. This blanket had waffle type divets (I suppose for warmth in the winter) and it was the toughest, scratchiest, hardest most uncomfortable blanket we've ever had on a bed. I should have taken it off the bed on the first night.

Thank you for posting a review about or hotel. Aside from the smoke odor which you would expect in a casino, you had a pretty good stay with us and mentioned our restaurants with positive comments. We are sorry that the blanket was not as soft as you'd like. We do put the blanket on the bed because overnight our temperatures drop considerably as we are in high desert country. We look forward to your next visit.
