This is a beautiful hotel with fantastic rooms and great staff. It is just off Interstate 80 at Exit 303 so it is easy to find. If you like to gamble, there are plenty of coupons offered by the hotel for you to use and, of course, great meals. With all of this, why are there no laundry facilities on...

The room was amazing and the bathroom products were a nice change from the average hotel. The casino was nice and they offered coupons upon arrival but I had a negative experience with the cocktail waitress and when it was brought to the staffs attention nothing was done. That was the only negative part of my stay, all other employees...

We stopped in here on a Friday night around 5pm. We hit it just right because soon after there was a fairly long line for dinner. That in itself told me we had picked a good place to eat. The service was wonderful and the presentation of our meal was very nice. We come through Elko, Nevada once a year....

We are back for our second time. We love the king room and the bed is very comfortable. The place is well maintained and they have the biggest casino in Elko with table games ,slots, poker room and a sports book. We had a great time and we will be back.

OK place to spend the night on our way to Oregon. There aren't a lot of options in Elko. The restaurant was good and an oasis away from the smoke of the casino. Room was average and clean. Was close to the interstate. Not much else to say. Not much else to say.

The Elko Red Lion is a clean, well maintained, friendly and comfortable place to stay, play and eat well. We go there a couple of times a year to get away from the crowds of the Sacramento area and always enjoy ourselves. We recommend this hotel/casino.

Just a stop over on the drive back to California - bed is comfortable and toiletries are good. Plenty of coupons to encourage gambling or dining - recommend Luciano for Italian in town and Starbucks on premise for breakfast.

The staff was friendly and the room (342) was a bit dated but clean and quiet. Upon checking in we were advised the best place to park our car was on the back side (north) of Building 3. We did so and upon checkout noticed our car's hood and windshield was covered with the residue of hundreds or thousands of...

Robert, we spoke yesterday on the phone and I apologized for the poor water quality that is in the Elko water table. While our sprinklers are aimed at the grass, other factors such as wind, etc. can cause the water spray to stray onto vehicles. It is a rare occasion that a guest will report this kind of problem. I'm...

Coming from the Bay Area, thought I would try this as a first night stop over place, as my friend and I actually like casinos. The pros: nice, updated rooms and bedding as has been mentioned. However, despite having reserved a premium room near the casino, was given a regular room at the farthest possible end of the property. This...

John, thank you for staying at the Red Lion Hotel & Casino. I checked on your reservation, which was made through Expedia. After calling Expedia, I was able to verify that you selected a deluxe room and not a Premium room. Our deluxe rooms are at the far end of the casino and are generally selected for their lower rates....
