I was so impressed when Tonia, our friendly front desk clerk, accommodated my friend and I upon check-in. My friend is mildly handicapped, and we had been put in an upstairs room (no elevator). But not for long, because we found ourselves upgraded to a ground floor unit. I'd give this lovely hotel 5 stars but our heater/air-conditioner didn't work. Otherwise, we are very happy campers and would come back again in a heartbeat!

My wife made reservations at the hotel as Elko was the closest mid-point between Pocatello, ID and Frenchglen, OR. The hotel was undoubtedly one of the best places that we have ever stayed. The service and friendliness from everyone who works there was outstanding. The hotel is clean as a whistle and the rooms are nicely furnished with some really outstanding antique furniture. And Elko is a great little town. I highly recommend the Old Country Inn to anyone looking for a place to stay in Elko.

We have stayed here many times in the past....and keep coming back. However, his stay was a bit different. The Good.....still great room with great comfy beds, a large clean room and friendly staff.........The Bad...prices seem to have gone a a bit.......and The Ugly......the internet wifi is worthless. I had to spent a great deal of time on the phone with an internet tech guy...and he finally concluded that he couldn't do anything to make it work. We finally went to Wendy's next door and us...

The rooms here are very big. The staff is nice. The rooms were clean. Shower pressure was good. There is a casino and restaurant on the property. If you need to use the wifi, do not stay here. Most of the time it does not work or it is too slow. It seriously needs an upgrade.

This is our first stay. We found our room to be very large, totally comfortable and extremely clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All of my special requests (made when booking the room) were accomodated. The food at JR'S was excellent, as was the staff. The chicken tortilla soup was the bomb. My only suggestion would be for there to be outlets available for charging our devices and personal fans. We'll be back!

I have to say I was incredibly surprised with this place. My family and I stayed here on our way home. At a glance at Elko itself I didn't have high expectations, and from the outside of the hotel it looked aged, but once inside the room I was surprised. The room was very large and clean. There were two queen size beds which were in good shape and were comfortable. The bathroom was nothing special but was equally spacious. There was also a mini fridge which was nice to keep our drinks cold for... Read more

This is an old motel/casino, which has seen better days. That said , the room was clean and spacious and the staff at check-in were friendly and obliging. The restaurant was OK but I found all of the fried food a bit too much for my taste. Again, the wait staff were very friendly and worked hard at their job.

Bug bites from whatever kind of bugs in room and beds, finally clearing up after 1 week. Mattresses at least 30 years old! "Heated Pool" not heated. Jacuzzi closed for ?. Internet would not work. NO COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST! - just ONE $5,00 voucher for all of us - good only in their ridiculously high priced restaurant ($14.00 for basic breakfasts).

The hotel was nice, large rooms and very clean. The d├ęcor is dated but when kept this clean, it was fine. The pool water was cloudy, but the area around was clean and we didn't have any trouble swimming in it, although mosquitoes were bad after dark. We had two rooms--one on the second floor, one on ground level, and both were nice and I felt safe on the ground floor. The hotel has at least 4 buildings, so our rooms were separate from the casino but very close for walking.

Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Our hotel room didn't just smell clean, it was clean. My husband has a bad back and usually complains about hotel beds, he was happy about the comfortable mattress and slept like a baby. We ate at other locations around Elko but couldn't top JRs. Their food, atmosphere and staff were THE BEST. This will be THE PLACE we stay and eat the next time we are in Elko.

The casino and restaurant are in a separate building on a corner of the property. This made for quiet rooms. The rooms were clean and pleasant although furnishings were not modern. Check in was smooth and value for the price was good. It was obviously just a short walk away for food.

We had been driving most of the day and this Inn was just a random choice but it was a good one. I enjoyed talking with the front staff and was able to get a room with everything we needed except on the ground floor. Sigh, no elevator and two flights of stairs. A big clean room with a comfortable sitting area. Slept well and the price was one of the most reasonable we have found in some time.

I would recommend this hotel for the huge non-smoking room w/2 queen sized beds. It was nice and clean, was able to park right outside room. Very nice young lady at check in. We're not gamblers so I can't say much about the casino. I was able to book the room in the road through TripAdvisor for a good rate too.

Very nice place! Clean with all the amenities including coffee pot, refrigerator. Nowadays not all the hotels have coffee pots and refrigerators. Reasonably priced with coffee shop near by. We will try and stay here whenever we come to Elko which will be often because we have family here.

I spent one night at this hotel and it fairly comfortable The staff were friendly and gave me a toothbrush when I realized I had left mine behind. My dogs were allowed in the lounge, but it was in the casino so there was a lot of cigarette smoke. The room was clean and spacious.

Nice hotel, clean and roomy. The standard room is spacious and clean. There is some road noise but not terrible. If you are looking an inexpensive place to stay on your journey through Elko this is the place. It has a clean pool and workout room. There are restaurants and a casino, but I couldn't tell you about them as I have not been to either.

I usually stay at a different national chain, but the folks at Gold Country Inn have stolen me away from my usual. For good reason. 40% less per night, spacious rooms so clean they are ready for military inspection. They have a slight western decor, not the usual cookie cutter boring room. Staff is very friendly, super supportive and knowledgeable of the area. Free perks and casino credit coupons if you go for that side of the property. Consistently good in the JR grill.

My daughter and I were driving back to California from Boulder, CO and needed a place to stay for the night. I made a reservation at this hotel because it was such a good price and the reviews were very good. I was skeptical at first because it is also a casino, but the rooms are not actually inside the casino. The person at the registration desk was friendly and helpful. Our room had 2 double beds and was very spacious and well decorated. It did not smell of smoke at all and the room and bathro... Read more

This is my second time staying at America's best value, and I am becoming a fan. I had a two queen bed room. Very spacious room. Clean, modern, comfy bed. You register at the casino but the hotel is a separate building so you don't get the smoke from the casino. Seemed like a relatively safe area. I would stay here again.

Another room booked because of Tripadvisor...thanks people. The room was very nice. Clean, nice sized and and air conditioner that worked great! Didn't utilize the casino as we had our kids with us. That brings me to my only complaint--Parents, unfortunately you will have to leave your kids in the car (or outside) when you go in to register as the lobby is right in the casino. Luckily I don't have small kids, but it could be a concern to others. Overall a nice place to stay and one I would st... Read more

We stayed here 2 different times on a recent road trip and was pleasantly surprised both times. We travel with a small dog so we had to have pet friendly -- but the rooms did not have that wet dog smell. The lady that checked us in both times was very friendly and efficient. Both rooms were large -- had 2 queens beds and still enough room to move around freely. Very clean, thank goodness. There was a vanity that was at the end of the room and then a large separate full bath with one of the ... Read more

The rooms are truly decorated in an enjoyable way with a huge bathroom. I love it! You would never guess it from the bland entry in the casino check in. Although the pool was close to our room, we never heard any noise and the casino blocked any street or highway noise as well. I would stay here again.

Very comfortable for my kids on their road trip. They were so happy to stay here twice. They stopped on their way to their grandparents house and on their way back home and they absolutely loved it. Stayed at 4 hotels on the trip and this one was by far their favorite based on comfort of the beds, cleanliness and feeling of safety. This was their first road trip alone and it was nice to know they felt so safe and comfy! Thanks Americas Best!

We were going from Lake Tahoe to Salt Lake and needed a stop over to break up the drive. When we arrived at the check in the casino the smoke was unbearable. We asked for non smoking rooms and were given such said rooms. To our pleasant surprise the room was clean, very spacious and had not been smoked in. You can't beat the price for a stop over. We didn't use any of the coupons given at check in for the restaurant due to the smoke. There were vending machines on our floor and the room was equ... Read more

I was a little nervous about this hotel, because of the low rate. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very clean, comfortable room with a great bed! Check in was very pleasant and the staff were very helpful. This is a "sister" hotel to the Red Lion across the street. We had dinner at the Red Lion and breakfast at JR's, the on-site restaurant. Both meals were very good. JR's wait staff are great. We will definitely stay here again!

We had a short drive from the bay area and arrived before normal check-in.

This is a two story complex with outside doors to each of the rooms. The parking lot was VERY dark, not well lit, did not seem secure. Other than that it was ok, the rooms are good sized and nicely furnished. We chose this stop because it has a casino attached and we wanted to unwind and gamble for a bit after being on the road all day. The restaurant on site stopped serving at 9 p.m. which we thought was a bit odd for a casino restaurant.

PROS: The room was huge even with two queen beds in it! A little dated on the interior but tolerable. Large vanity area, good size bathroom. The restaurant on-site is good, not fabulous, but good. Nice dog-friendly hotel. CONS: One of the queen beds was horrible ... we sat on it and sunk in at least 8-10" ... the other was much more firm - still a little soft for our liking, but we slept okay on it. If you are staying here for the casino, go across the street - that one is quite nice and their ... Read more
