Red Lion Hotel & Casino, Elko, Nevada, A Perfect Road Stop

The long stretch of Interstate 80 between California and Idaho and Wyoming can seem pretty desolate and expansive when you’re trying to get 300-500 miles per day under your tires between states.

Sometimes on a road trip it can be too easy to focus on the destination and miss some of the journey.

Surprisingly, there’s much more than a pit stop on a long road trip when you take time to look at Elko, Nevada and what it has to offer. In fact, while you’re trying to gain ground on your next cross country marathon, you may want to schedule an extra day or two to explore the desert beauty and casino nightlife in Elko, Nevada. And the Red Lion Hotel and Casino in Elko is the perfect desert oasis from which to explore it.

Nestled in Northeastern Nevada in the serene high desert by the majestic Ruby Mountains, Nevada’s very own Swiss Alps, this comfortable property with its recent two million dollar upgrades, really fits the bill on a long road trip.

Sure it has a state of the art fitness center, huge pool and 24 hour casino and buffet but if a truly good night’s sleep with all the amenities and comforts is what you need for the next leg of your trip, this is the place to catch a wonderful night’s sleep and feel refreshed for the rest of your trip.

Lush comfortable plush pillow top bedding and executive quality linens, Bath and Body Works toiletries, in room fridge and microwaves, free internet, quality coffees and teas, granite vanities, gorgeous draperies that actually block the light….this is the place a weary traveler needs to stop to recharge.

This property offers free parking, and is just blocks from excellent shopping and dining as well.

Elko has long been a weary traveler’s road stop but the Red Lion Hotel and Casino in Elko offers the perfect place from which to explore the mines, mountains, museums, recreation areas and more that make Elko a destination and much more than a rest stop.
