Great room at a great price. The bathroom could've been a little cleaner. Found hair in tub and the tub was greasy. I managed to rinse out the tub myself. Staff was very nice and friendly. I would recommend.

I booked here last minute on booking.com and got a very good deal. The rooms were nicely updated and I was upgraded to a King room which was rather nice. The staff was friendly . I got in a little late and just missed the buffet, but they have a coffee shop open there 24 hours. The Voodoo Cowboys were...

In town for a business meeting in the hotel - nothing fantastic. Pretty minimal in terms of service, room and environment. Nothing bad to say, but as well, nothing fantastic. It was a place to lay my head after a long day of meetings.

Red Lion is an oasis along the Interstate 80 route through the state of Nevada! Elko is a small town, yet it has all the stores like a larger town would have. The casinos are a lot of fun, but the food is great too! Better than Reno and is a safer place to stay in my opinion. The Red...

This was just an overnight stop for us on our way through the state. Everything was good. It was a bit bigger than I expected, and we were in the building furthest from the casino, so it was a bit of a walk. But the walk was indoors and I wasn't there for the casino anyway. What really made this...

First time staying here will be my new "go to" place in Elko! Easy check-in, parking close to rooms, comfortable and nicely decorated room, friendly and efficient service and a non-smoky casino to top it off..... I will be back soon!!

This is our third time back. We just love Red Lion. The staff and rooms are great and had a fun time trying to win some money. They do a good job of getting rid of the smoke in the casino. The snow on the mountains are beautiful.

Room was sweltering hot. Lowered thermostat to no avail. Called front desk and was told that cooling system was turned off. Was instructed to open window and "that should cool off the room enough." Their solution was for me to sleep with an open and unscreened patio door.

Thank Chris C
DavidZornes_CEO, General Manager at Red Lion Hotel & Casino, responded to this review

Chris, I am sorry that your room was warm. We had a leak in the cooling tower and had to call in a team from Salt Lake City to fix the leak. We had to shut down the cooling system and unfortunately, it left the hotel without a balance to cope with Elko's wide temperature fluctuations. We are sorry that...

Nice spacious, clean room. Aspens Restaurant in attached casino had very good food. Coffee Garden restaurant also did a good breakfast. Nice to have these on premises since the weather was below freezing. The usual issue with smoke in a casino, but they did a reasonable job of "Fabrizing" to hide it.
