Friendly staff at check-in. got the room an hour earlier than I had booked it for. Room was a bit small, but had a desk, a nightstand, a fidge, a microwave table and chair. The bed was way too soft for me, however. I felt I almost dropped through. The chair and table will both need a hand. Some of the framework on the table dropped off, and the chair was squeaking, when sitting. I am not that heavy! Hot water was slow to appear during the afternoon, but much quicker the next morning. WiFi worked exelent, but the TV had severe trouble if you had the bad manner to switch channel. Door only had the knop lock. No dead bolt, no chain. On the other hand this was not Problematic Neighborhood, Los Angeles. It can be a problem gettig to the location, as it is right up to a major intersection. You may have to go on and then make a U-turn. Breakfast, which was included, was not worth the walk to the reception. Hot water, tea bags, some cereal and tiny muffins. Did not see coffee nor milk.

My from the 10 feet inside the door was poor, but my wife and granddaughter would vote terrible from going into the bothroom. I booked several days ahead and the room we booked was the only one left in this property. It was a large room with 3 beds. I asked if it had been smoked in because one in our family of 3 is allergic to even mild smoke. The man at the desk said we could check it out. There was a hole in the carpet just inside of the door jam. The room was musty. I thought we could do it though un impressed. I walked back to the office. My wife came in shaking her head no!!. The desk man said he would not charge us because the town was full. When I got outside my wife said the toilet was rusted and there was hair on the floor of the shower and dirty. We went on another 100 miles and found a room in an older motel also, as Winnemucca was nearly sold out too. That room was clean, spotless, and well cared for. I am so glad we went on. I hope that our card gets refunded as the desk person said it would be in Elko. We will not stop at the Elko Motel again.

Yes, there are striped sheets, as per a previous reviewer. There is also a generous size tile walk in shower, a good size room, better than average TV channels, and morning coffee in the lobby, for a rate somewhat less than I paid for a tiny mom 'n pop motel room in the center of town. This is an old motor court, but acceptably well maintained with a affable manager. During my several stays I have always found it comfortable and quiet. For the price, around $50, I could not ask more.

Quick checkin wifi works back area is quiet no frills older but ok. Welcomed at check in. Cold breakfast coffee ok to get you going for the day. Parking inside. Phone in room, bedding was clean, water hot and bathroom was clean

We were at the end of a 3 week road trip, so have stayed in a lot of different motels recently. This one was one of the best for value for the cost. We don't look for anything fancy, but expect a clean, quiet room and this one was perfect. It is an older hotel, but is well maintained and was very clean. Owner was very friendly during check-in and even upgraded our room to a King for free! The room was very large and the bed was very comfortable. I love the striped sheets! Every other hotel has heavily bleached white sheets and it was so nice to sleep on soft sheets. The room had a fridge and microwave that were placed near the sink and dresser, so we were able to use it like a mini kitchen to prepare our meals. It had plenty of outlets to recharge all our electronics. We travel with expensive equipment in our vehicle, so we really appreciated the layout were we could park our truck right outside our door. The parking lot was a little tight since all the vehicles are large trucks, so I would not recommend coming in with a trailer.

What kind of place has striped sheets? The Elko Motel does! Okay, so I'll start at the beginning. I booked through Expedia. But there was a problem with my credit card, so Peter called me to let me know. I was driving through the mountains so we got cut off. I finally arrived and checked in. This is an old motel packed with charm--and everything worked. The A/C was off, but it was as though it had been on recently because it wasn't hot in the room. Just turned it on and everything was fine. Then I sat on the bed to take off my shoes and immediately thought, "Oh no! I'll never be able to sleep on this cushy bed." But I was wrong, I slept just fine! I was grimy, so I decided to shower. Shower was fine, except a bit slow to drain. I informed Peter and he said that he would work on it. So then it was time to play. I didn't know where, so I hit the front desk. Peter's wife(?) told me that when she felt like gambling she would go to the Red Lion. So that's where I went. Had a good time for several hours even though the band wasn't very good. Got back to the Elko Motel and slept well. Then I left in a good mood.

We used this for a one night stop between Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks. It was extremely inexpensive for the 5 adults sharing a single room. We had two queen beds and a full. It was clean although dated. There was a soda machine and laundry on the premises. We left too early to review the breakfast.

Rien a dire sur l'etat du motel,mais le gerant devrait changer de profession: nul pour expliquer ou se trouve les lieux desires, surtout nous a traité comme des moins que rien car nous avons eu le malheur de venir trop tot pour son cafe qui est mauvais. Il nous a criés et a violent claqué la porte: un conseil eviter le petit dej.

Elko war ausgebucht - die Elko Mining EXPO hatte dafür gesorgt, dass fast alle Unterkünfte belegt waren. Im Elko Motel bekamen wir zum Glück noch ein Dreier-Zimmer. Der Preis war dank des Ereignisses leider verdoppelt, aber wir waren zufrieden, da wir aufgrund einer Fahrzeugpanne im Ort bleiben mussten. Man kann nichts Schlechtes über das Zimmer sagen - einfache Ausstattung älteren Datums, aber sauber wars. Hervorzuheben ist die Freundlichkeit des Managers bzw. Besitzers. Wir wurden an der Werkstatt abgeholt, durften am Folgetag verspätet auschecken und bekamen noch ein kleineres Zimmer reserviert für den Fall, dass wir eine Nacht bleiben müssten.
