    Worked well for our pup!

    They had a nice “park” next to the hotel that was grassy, clean and well kept. It was a nice place for pups to gather and do their “business.”

    Less than good

    Once we got into the room, the odor was so overpowering we weren't sure we could stay the night. We left as early as we could the next morning and definitely will not be returning to this hotel.

    Great stay

    Nice hotel in Elko. Great staff and very thoughtful of our dog. Pool, hot tub and fitness center (who needs a fitness center with a very active blue heeler?)

    Not the best

    Rooms weren’t ready at 7:30 pm. First room wasn’t cleaned: razor hair in the shower, pee on toilet, popcorn all over. Second room: not vacuumed, hallways not cleaned, there was a lot of damage from other dogs in the room (scratches, parts of the wall/paint on the floor).

    Dead bugs in bed and stained sheets

    Zero bones for room cleanliness. We suspected our bed had bed bugs and floors and linens were stained and possibly dirty. Front desk person was super friendly and gave us another room which had weird grease stained sheets and a soaking wet spot on the floor. Pet area was gross with feces. Only reason I gave 2 bones was for friendly staff and decent pool.

    Comfortable Relief After Long Day of Driving

    Started the day in snowy Montana and ended at Best Western Elko Inn; both my pup and I were dead tired and all went well! Receptionist is great and took a photo of my pup for the wall of pet visitors. Good area for her to do her duty. Room was clean, and pet fee was worth every penny.

    Very dog friendly

    This hotel WELCOMES dogs. The manager has a collage of dog guest photos behind the check in counter. The dog area is nicely kept, clean with green grass, complimentary poop bags. Our room was huge and clean, but unfortunately next to the staircase which was rather noisy. Would definitely stay again.

    Great location

    Room was comfortable but the TV was not working and coffee pot in room was also not workable. Honestly in all hotels I've stayed in during my 5 day journey across the states, every single hotel except Best Western in Joliet IL had something that was missing or didn't work 🙃

    Delicious Breakfast

    We had a really nice stay at the Best Western and they had the best breakfast we’d had at any of our cross country stays. They had fresh blueberry muffins right out of the oven and breakfast sandwiches in addition to other items.

    Nice room and good breakfast

    Everyone there was really nice. The room was clean and smelled good. Breakfast in the morning was nice to grab and go so that we could get back on the road.

    OK but there's better close by

    This was our first time staying here vs another similarly priced hotel close by (not available this trip). The room was fine-spacious, clean and well stocked. However, the room was at one end of the long hotel and the two card readers for access other than the front door were not working; the person at check-in suggested leaving a rock, etc in the door to allow re-entry (security?). They do have breakfast but barely: coffee was getting cold, biscuits were hard/cold, grape jelly that I picked up was HARD in the pack, like plastic. "Cheese Omelettes" actually were filled with (I think) ground up ham, peppers, onions in a slurry-not very tasty at all. The dog run area was littered with poop but that seems to be a common problem, not with the hotel necessarily, but rather with obnoxious pet owners. I do not blame the hotel for that but it i still irritating.

    Everything was as expected!

    They allowed us to check in early upon arrival. Room was clean. Hot shower, good breakfast, pool is open 24hrs, seemed like a safe location. Decent sized area for the dogs to do their business as well. Definitely stay here again when we go back to explore the area :)

    no close ingress to room

    due to exterior card readers being broken, we couldn't get back in close to our room - or our car. TV system was not as easy to use as other motels.

    Still my favorite hotel in Elko

    Its worth the extra fee. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times. Its beautiful, clean and the beds are SO comfy. Ice cold air conditioning is also a plus with the weather being so hot this summer! The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 bones is the breakfast, while still decent was no where near the quality that it always has been before. Hashbrowns weren't cooked completely and server didn't listen to how my husband wanted his breakfast. Plus the ham was dry and no yogurt. Front desk and house keeping staff were exceptional on this stay!

    Not worth $150

    Unfortunately, the choices for dog friendly hotels in Elko is limited. The price for the quality of hotel you get is way off. $80 seems more appropriate. Dog area was unclean and you had to watch every step you took as well as your dog.

    good but limited outdoor space for dogs

    The room was great - clean and relaxing. The staff at check-in were warm and kind. The area for dogs outside, though, is very small and was filled with poop when we were there. Fortunately, there is a great city park just a little ways down the road.
    One other issue - when I checked out, no one in the lobby was wearing their Covid-19 masks over their faces [staff and guests] even though there was a "masks required" sign on the front door. I did not feel comfortable and left immediately.

    Clean And Convenient

    Conveniently located on our cross country trip. I liked that breakfast started early (4am) and that the pool was large and open 24 hours. They allow well behaved pets unattended and we took advantage to walk a block over for great Mexican food. The room was large as well and the room was clean. Front desk staff were very nice.

    Best room of our trip

    Our king bed room was huge and the bathroom had a separate sink area. The bed and bedding were super comfy. They gave my dog a treat upon arrival and ask us to tell the front desk if we were leaving the dog in the room so they would call us if there was a problem. Breakfast was some better than the usuals.
