Thunderbird Elko located in downtown is a prime location for shopping dining and fun. The hotel is within walking distance to some of Elkos most historic building largest casinos and the airport. The Thunderbird is under new management and all the rooms have been renovated clean and fresh. Guest rooms feature flat screen TVs microwave refrigerator the fastest free WiFi in town and the coffee in our lobby is always on. The family will also enjoy the outdoor season pool.

Great room

The room was very clean and neat. The temperature was just right and there was minimal noise from other rooms. They were changing ownership and so they did not have a continental breakfast yet but they did have fresh fruit which was good. We would go there again in a heart beat.

Like a Newly Remodeled Ashtray

Nicely updated and remodeled rooms. However, our 'non-smoking' room smelled like an ashtray. Call ahead, the staff didn't seem to be paying attention to online reservations. Local mine workers were in many neighboring rooms on a Saturday night partying loud, rowdy and all night long.

A step above

This property is advertised as the best kept secret in Elko, and it may very well be true. This is an older property, which is very well mintained, with large and comfortable rooms and a pool. Fridge and microwave in-room, comfortable beds. As is often the case with value priced accommodations, there are no hair dryers, ironing boards or irons (but ask at the office). My only disappointment was that there was also no coffee maker in the room, which is pretty much a standard everywhere. However, having stayed at a great many economy motels, I always travel with an inexpensive 4 cup coffee maker for just such situations. One thing, if you use a GPS to find this motel, select west Idaho Street. Overall, I was very pleased with this property, and would certainly stay again and recommend.

Overnight In Elko...Nevada, that is!

Desk clerk complied with request for ground floor unit. Outside temp. was in the low 90's, but room was cooled to low 70's upon arrival. Everything clean and comfortable. We were given two "$5 off breakfast at Red Lion cafe," about a mile east of the motel. Good place for breakfast.!!

"Blind Onion" for pizza. Next to a bowling alley and bar with great selection of draft beers....only on drink size...a 12+ oz. mug. Pizza crust can be ordered standard or "thin." Worth a try.

good location, low budget

The hotel is conveniently downtown and low-priced. The room was clean, but the bed was saggy and soft and the pillows were too thick to sleep on.
