    « Surprising find in Tonopah, Nevada »

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Clean comfortable and nicely furnished rooms, helpful professional staff, and overall a great hotel. The complementary continental breakfast was excellent, and fresh chocolate chip cookies in the lobby. Can't get much better than that for the price and I've stayed at some upscale establishments that were no better.

    « Traveling through to Reno, stayed in Tonopah. »

    The trip from Phoenix is just too long for us, so we decided to stay in Tonopah, NV. I have been staying at Best Westerns for many years. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Gave us suggestions on where to go for dinner. There are several other motels in this town. The hotel is older, but has been renovated and looks fine. Our room was clean. The bed was a little too hard for me, but so many motels have too hard beds anymore. We will stay there again if we are going that way.

    « Always a good stay »

    We stay at least 4 times a year at this location. It always provides us a comfortable night's rest and a good breakfast before getting back on the road The breakfast food assistant was very pleasant to everyone. We have had a different person serving in this capacity each time we have stayed but everyone of them has been great I have only one complaint...the shower curtain smelled very sour when it got wet. I mentioned this to front desk. They said they would change it right away. I said we were on our way out so just make sure it is done before new guests arrive. We will be back in a few months.

    « Lovely hotel »

    Not much to say as we only stayed one night. Extremely clean, well maintained hotel. Very good night sleep. Kind of in a very small town but close to gas station, shops etc. Price was fair, only criticism was the breakfast consisted of a hot drink and a cookie!!! I would recommend it, very good!

    « Best Hotel around! »

    I've been staying at this hotel twice a year for the last 9 years. I love it. They remodeled it in the last couple years and it's just gotten better. The breakfast is really good, and perfect for on the go guests. They offer a kind of bag to go if you can't make it to there morning breakfast. The rooms are beyond comfortable and non-smoking. Wish the showers had more pressure, but it's hot, so really no problems. Customer service is top notch and they are good with requests. Excellent stay! I am always satisfied. If you plan on staying, book your room in advanced, especially on a weekend.

    « A nice visit in Tonopha »

    After driving long hours it is always nice to come to a place that feels a little like home. At first look the high desert inn does not look like much, but as you walk in the doors you see that this old building is being updated and taken great care of. They have updates planned. The room was wonderful, and the breakfast was one of the greatest Best Western breakfasts that we have ever experienced. My favorite part was that the breakfast had the option of ceramic mugs for coffee; this was a cherry on top of a great visit. These mugs added a home-like touch that impressed me greatly. I hope to get to stay here again one day!

    « REMOTE TOWN »

    This motel is located in Tonopah, NV, which is a small city in the Nevada desert with nothing around it. We were travelling to Arizona and this was a convenient overnight stop. The motel offered all we needed without having any aspects worthy of particular note, other than the staff were very friendly & helpful. Tonopah is not the greatest of towns!!!

    « Very nice, more updates planned »

    This has been our go-to hotel in Tonopah, but I didn't recognize the inside because of the many changes that had been made since our last visit. The room, as always, was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included, and was better than most continental breakfasts. The renovated breakfast room was very nice.

    « Tonopha night »

    The high desert inn ( Best Western ) was a awesome place to stay. Staff was helpfull, rooms were clean and comfortable and they had a great breakfast. There was no restaurant near the hotel. The staff suggested a good place to eat.

    « Best hotel in the area »

    Located across the street from the Tonopah Brewery and BBQ, this Best Western hotel is exceptional. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The internet service was great. The breakfast selections were the best for any hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the U.S. Cookies in the lobby in the evening were a big treat.

    « A Surprise Stay »

    We did not know what to expect in the `outback` but this Hotel was a very, very pleasant surprise We did not meet the Manager/Owners but the receptionist could not have been more pleasant or helpful A Breakfast Room and Guest Laundry rooms are provided and a small but comfortable seating area with on-tap coffee and biscuits. Wi-Fi is also provided, although the whole town was `down` on the days that we stopped The room we had was sufficiently spacious and the whole hotel is immaculately clean You will not regret breaking your Desert journey here

    « A great Place to Stay »

    Our stay in Tonopah was great - the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. There is a great B.B.Q. restaurant across the street which made the evening very easy and convenient. The breakfast was what is expected with a clean space and the food was tasty.

    « Jewel in the Desert »

    While Jason, at the front desk, helped me with some information, two other families checking out stopped to tell him what a fine facitity this Best Western is. Clean, well appointed, good breakfast, a tiny "snack bar" with some food for the evening and local hand made products, and friendly service created a pleasant stay. We highly recommend this Best Western (pet friendly, too) as a stop over. Good breakfast facility (thanks, Pam), quiet rooms even on highway through town, and very comfy bed and pillows! [The outdoor pool was covered for winter.]

    « Oasis in the desert »

    Really a gem in an otherwise remote and uninspiring area. The property is well maintained and adequately staffed, with customer satisfaction obviously an important goal. Great helpful and pleasant staff makes you feel very welcome. Definitely one of the better Best Westerns of many I have visited. We stopped there on the way out on our trip, then made it a point to stay there a second time as we returned home via the same route. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

    « Best Western Tonopah, NV »

    If you are traveling between Las Vegas and Reno, the only place I would stay would be the BW Tonopah, NV. Customer service is excellent and the property is clean. The GM really cares about the customer service and checks with the customer regarding the properties performance standard. I believe this property is one of the best for customer service in the far west.

    « Wonderful staff, beautiful hotel »

    Many little touches made a big difference. Real, large, coffee cups in the room. Tea bags, as well as coffee. Room was very clean, and nice. Breakfast was good, and my husband said it was the nicest breakfast setup he has ever seen at a hotel- especially appreciated how clean it was. Also, the staff was quite accommodating.

    « Road Stop »

    Traveling from Cedar City Utah to Yosemite National Park, there are few places to stay except Tonopha, NV. There are a number of motels available in the city of varying quality, however the Best Western is one of the best quality motels in town. The facility is clean. The rooms are modern, update, and clean. The breakfast better than can be expected. The staff is helpful and friendly. The cost is worth the stay. I would highly recommend this motel.

    « This is the place to stay halfway to Vegas! »

    Loved this hotel and the staff... very clean nicely decorated hotel with more amenities than I've seen ! Not much open for those of us that arrive late, so nice to see that they have for purchase frozen microwave meals and not the cheap ones, but nice Schwans food.... cucumber water at check in, rooms are beautiful as is the entire hotel. Would like to see the pool open but hopefully next time.

    « Best place in town! »

    We stayed in the annex building and the rooms were either new or recently renovated. It was amazingly clean, especially considering all the dust/sand that blows around the desert. Breakfast was the bomb! Huge ceramic coffee mugs-not those tiny paper cups found at most free breakfasts. There was great variety of foods, hot and cold. Each room has refrigerator and microwave. The entire staff was super friendly and accommodating. Hotel is centrally located and walking distance to an Italian family restaurant and local attractions.

    « Room small but clean - parking not great »

    Room was small but bed was very comfortable so hardly noticed anything else! Breakfast was good with typical hotel variety of hot and cold options. The only difficulty was in parking our small trailer. We had to park in an empty lot next door to the hotel - just made for a long walk to our room. The good news is that there IS parking for oversize - just not close.

    « Best place in town. »

    Their staff is absolutely awesome. So many choices for hot or cold breakfast & endless coffee. Motorcycle and truck trailer parking. Clean non-smoking rooms. This is the place I stay when I'm in town!!

    « Best Place to Stay in Tonopah NV »

    Always stay here, beds comfortable, staff great and best breakfast choices ever. Travel to Tonopah two times a year and this is always my choice to stay here. Have been staying at this hotel for over 20 years, they have made a lot of improvements.

    « Wonderfully pampered »

    Every staff member bent over backwards to make our stay totally enjoyable. Working in the service industry is grueling, but these employees seem to genuinely care and take pride in their jobs. The front desk people helped us print out our itinerary; the cleaning service ran out to our car to give us things we'd forgotten in the room; the breakfast crew asked us if we needed anything and served hot eggs and ham up until closing. We were so relieved after a day-long drive and arriving in the middle of the night to fall into an amazingly comfy bed. It was an oasis in the desert!

    « Great place to stay »

    We needed somewhere to stay between Reno and Las Vegas rather than drive through the night. This place is a little gem. We were given a room in the annex, it was spotlessly clean and well appointed. The perfect place to rest a weary driver. My wife made the comment that it was the best room we had been in on this trip. The breakfast room in the main building is spotlessly clean with a large selection of hot and cold breakfast options. This is an oasis in the badness that is that is highway 95. Totally recommended.

    « very impressive »

    This is the perfect and almost the only sane place to stop between Reno and Las Vegas! This is a neat funky little town. We had a unexpected fun time. The town, Tonapah Nevada closes down early. I could not believe how clean and well maintained the Best Western Hi Desert Inn was. Be sure to indulge in the free full breakfast they offer in mornings. I was very impressed!

    « Great Best Western »

    We were happy to see this Best Western after a really long and hot ride from Yosemite. The staff were great when we checked in and she even recommended a great restaurant. The room was in the annex which was really quiet, clean and very nice. The breakfast was great also, it was well stock with everything you could want for breakfast.

    « Excellent overnight »

    We stopped overnight after visiting the Mining museum. Good clean hotel with large rooms and easy parking. Note however that no elevator is available so if you have a problem with stairs and luggage make sure you stay on the ground floor. Otherwise good hotel, coffee and cookies in the lounge and a good help yourself breakfast in the morning. Note also the to be recommended Brew Pub directly over the road!

    « Another Great place to stop on the way »

    We stayed here one night on our way west; It was such a pleasure to find a place that was perfect for us. We were lucky to get a room as it was quite full. The breakfast was wonderful. Lots to choose from and the staff was so friendly. They also had cookies and hot water available for tea before we turned in at night. Clean and comfortable. The place to stop!

    « Mirage in the desert! »

    Traveling the south west for several weeks and our hotels were all booked by AAA and they have been great. The Best Western in Tonopa, Nv is a beautiful place. It is totally updated, very clean, great laundry facility and pool with adjoining hot tub are very inviting! The staff is very kind and helpful and the extra touches are very appreciated....real coffee mugs and glasses in the room and 24 hour coffee and infused water in the lobby and cookies too. You won't be disappointed here.

    « Great stay »

    We stayed here for one night enroute to death valley. We wasnt expecting much for the price but were pleasantly surprised. The lady on reception was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped with coffee making machine; microwave and fridge. We had lovely soak in the very warm jacuzzi by the pool, you soon forgot u were next to the main road. The lounge area was cozy and welcoming with free coffee, cookies and muffins. There was also refreshing iced cucumber water available, very welcoming after our long drive. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty, with plenty of choice and the cook kept everything topped up. All in all would highly recommend, was much better than some of the pricier hotels we stayed in. Ps try the pizzas from over the road, one of best ever had!!!

    We were pleasantly surprised with the recent remodel. The whole place was so clean and the staff so friendly and helpful. The breakfast area and selection were superb, I would highly recommend this as a stopover for those travelling to and from Las Vegas.

    « Great place to stay in Tonapah, NV »

    It's a great place to stay - courteous staff, clean and nice rooms with frig and microwave, good breakfast. Just make your reservations early as it appears to always be in demand. It's a nice place to take a break and relax when travelling across Nevada.

    « Clean, Great Breakfast, But Had One Problem »

    Stayed here on the way up and back during vacation. When we checked in, we asked for 2nd floor. It was only after she gave us our keys that we learned there was no elevator. Went back and got a ground floor. About two hours later someone opened our door. The front desk forgot to cancel our original room and book the new room. We went to dinner and when we got back our keys didn't work ??. Back to the front desk. On a positive note, I have never seen anyone work harder in the breakfast room than Pam. She never stood still except to ask us if everything was ok. She as so nice and friendly. Wish there were more like her.

    « As expected for the price »

    We stayed here for one night in May 16. We were previously notified that the hotel would be undergoing a re fit so weren't surprised when we arrived to see some areas not at their best. Hotel though was fine, clean and the staff were fine. Breakfast was a bit busy and had to wait a few minutes for a table to become free but nothing untoward. Easy to find parking fine

    « Good place to stay »

    We were enroute from Reno to Zion Park and stopped for a night. We were pleased at the size of the king suite, which accommodated us and our adult son, who was in the adjoining room with its own bathroom and Tv and sofa bed. Quiet, clean, all amenities including shower cap which most hotels don't provide. Only complaint was the free breakfast ended at 9 and so we missed it; nowhere do they give the breakfast hours. The receptionist was also unfriendly, they need a better welcomer. But the price was right so we were happy.

    « more than meets the eye »

    so much more than what you see on the outside, newly redone, larger rooms, clean, great breakfast options, they have non-dairy items i.e. almond milk, its got a great feeling when you walk in, staff is friendly and responsive, happy to see their GREEN initiative

    I was here with my family and we had a two room suite for one night. The beds were absolutely heavenly!!! I stay at hotels frequently both for business and leisure and this exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Still a great place to stay. »

    This was our 2nd stay here this year and again we found the staff to be very friendly and the room, comfortable, open and light. The breakfast, included in the room rate, was terrific with many food choices, including cooked oatmeal. Much appreciated were the ceramic coffee mugs.

    « Best in Town??? »

    Staff was helpful, room clean and comfortable with good quality furniture. Breakfast was good. Stayed in Annex. Quiet with little road noise. Internet was very good. The night before checkout, I was surprised to find 3 room charges on my Visa. I called the front desk and was informed that one was for checking-in after 6pm, and the other two??? Later, I found that only one remained.

    « Just a good clean property!!! »

    This is one of more recent hotels in Tonopah, so if you want updated this is one of the newer ones......clean rooms AC and wifi with breakfast served in the morning!!! Nice to have a bite to eat before you hit the road!! And believe me, Tonopah is in the middle of nowhere. Nice little town though!!

    « 2nd Time »

    Convenient, clean, comfortable, helpful staff, nice breakfast setup. I see other reviews saying it's "old". It is not old. It is just not new. There's a big difference. The Mizpah down the street is old.

    « Best Western Hi-Desert Inn, Tonopah, NEVADA »

    It is on Main Street and has easy access on and off the property. It is close to the Post Office, used book store, Mizpah Hotel. The rooms are spacious, the staff courteous, and it includes breakfast. For those of us with mobility issues, be aware there isn't an elevator. I appreciate having such a comfortable place to stay in a small town. One feature of the room I really appreciated was, the vanity with sink outside the bathroom. The bathroom was a full bathroom with vanity, tub/shower, toilet. The vanity and bathroom areas were separate from the bedroom area so there was privacy for anyone getting ready for their day.

    « Pretty good »

    Not the best, but it was pretty good. The hotel as a little old, but the staff was friendly and breakfast was good. The breakfast lady (Pam) did a very good job keeping it clean and stocked. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was very very busy because of several tour buses, so the hotel was 100% full. It is a great stopping point on our travels. We will definitely stay here again.

    « Good hotel »

    We were on our way from Vegas to Reno. This was one of the only places that you can stay in between. The hotel is old but clean. Good breakfast with lots of choices. The staff at the front desk was friendly. You can just walk across the street to a local restaurant with local beers. We enjoyed our stay and may come back if we are in the same area.

    « Well maintained, lots of room, free breakfast, and a good deal »

    We stayed in the 1 king bed suite, which has a separate attached room with a sofa bed in it. This was perfect for our little family traveling through the town, and is reasonably priced. There are two bathrooms with two showers, which is great if you have multiple travelers and you're planning to get going earlier in the morning. The free breakfast is held in a well maintained room, and offers waffles, eggs, breads, bagels, cereals, danishes, sausage, potatoes, juices, milk, and coffee with a variety of flavor pumps. The lobby also had free cookies and coffee in the evenings, and iced tea and ice water at all times. The rooms were very well maintained and clean, with functioning window A/Cs, TVs, microwave, and fridge. The only downside is that there is no elevator in the two-story "annex" building, where our room was located. The hotel is right off highway 95 in the center of town, and is near the Tonopah historic mining park, and across the street from the Tonopah Brewing Company. We didn't use the pool or fitness center, but both seemed to be well maintained. If you're traveling through Tonopah, and need a family friendly place to stay, this is it!

    « Great Stay »

    We had a great stay the beds were comfortable, TV worked,breakfast was good, we had lots of options. The room was clean and they had truck parking for the Uhaul we were driving. The staff was very nice and friendly. I would stay here again that is why I always stay at Best Western's.

    « Comfortable hotel, uninspiring surroundings »

    There isn't much of a choice of hotels in Tonopah. I chose this one because I felt I would be safest here as a single traveler. It was a little pricey, but it is a nice place to say. It's right across the street from a nice restaurant which looks like the only modern place in that tiny town. The front desk was very efficient and the explained how the keycard turns on the air conditioning. They have free coffee and cookies which was nice. There was plenty of places to park. The room was very comfortable and clean. I slept well, and generally liked the hotel. There is not much selection in places to eat. This place is a good stop if you don't want to stop in Vegas.

    « Nice hotel »

    Very nice hotel for the price. The rooms are big with room to move around and they are clean. The breakfast is good with many choices of food. We were on a week long trip and stayed in other hotels and this one had the best shower of all.

    « Oasis of rest after hectic Las Vegas »

    We flew out of Las Vegas and found rest in Tonopah on our way to Yosemite. Nice motel, free fresh baked cookies in the evening with coffee. Nice staff and management who will go by each table in the morning at breakfast to ask if everything is Ok. Although the swimming pool is next to the street it was nice to take a dip and have the pool and jacuzzi for just the four of us.

    « Good for an ocernigtj »

    Travelling through this part of the state meant accommodation options were limited but this is a good spot with a brilliant pub across the road for dinner. The hotel is being updated and we stayed in the older part which was okay. The hotel is in several buildings which you can park near but have to walk across to the main building for reception, refreshments, breakfast, fitness room etc. The breakfast was good enough and everywhere looked to be being updated so I guess our rooms would have been done quite soon. Twin rooms have two double beds and are spacious.

    « A great stopping off place »

    Usually the hotels you find on your way getting from point A to point B are less than desirable. Just a place to lay your weary head to sleep. But good news this old mining town has a few things to offer. The Best Western was recently and very tastefully remodeled. Great value and as far as simple hotel breakfast included was one of the best ones yet. The staff was very friendly especially in the kitchen. And for dinner I would recommend you walk across the street to Tonopah Brewing Company. Defiantly a great place to break up a long drive.

    « Historic town with plenty to see. »

    Very impressed with the Best Western in Tonopah, AZ. This is a small mining town with a great history behind it. The Hotel was very nice and the rooms were great. There was some work being done in the halls of the Hotel but the rooms were very nice. Across the street was a brew house and served very good BBQ and a verity of local beers. Down the street is the Mizpaw Hotel which a been returned to it 's 1800 looks with all of the modern needs. Walk through and you will be amazed.

    « FABULOUS PLACE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE! »

    After a long hot drive, the Best Western appeared almost out of no where! a bit pricey but worth it from a comfort and convenience standpoint. I will stay here again! The front desk folks were all business, they might smile a bit more but they did their job well!

    « A Week in Early July - Comfortable Hotel, Everything You Need »

    We stayed for a week in early July because Tonopah is a destination for some of our local glider pilots who like to soar out of the Tonopah airport. I don't fly - I'm the wife of one of several pilots to convene on Tonapah every year or two for a fly-in. This was my third time staying at the Hi-Desert Inn Best Western, and I can honestly say that with each trip my stay is more comfortable. This year we had the Fourth of July parade assemble in the parking lot next door, which was really fun. Also, the Tonopah Brewery and Tap Room recently opened across the street from the hotel. It has great BBQ and very refreshing draft beers and wine. The hotel itself is clean, comfortable, well staffed and safe. It has free wi-fi (100% reliable), a really nice free breakfast each morning as well as afternoon cookies and coffee in the lobby, VERY accommodating staff who do everything to see that the guests are comfortable, generous sized refrigerators in the rooms, a laundry room for guests, a pool and jacuzzi, a big parking lot that will accommodate a truck and long trailer (with a sailplane). We'll be back in Tonopah in the future and when we return we'll stay at the Hi Desert Inn again. We wouldn't think of going anyplace else....

    « Overnight »

    Quick overnight trip while traveling USA. Hotels was slightly over priced in my opinion. I pay 125/night for the Hilton but since there was nothing available it served its purpose. The hotel was clean, only smoking rooms were left so that was quite unpleasant. Also this best western allows pets & there was a dog barking next door for about an hour in the am. They have a typical continental breakfast. Eggs, bacon, toast, juice. The room had a flat screen, refrigerator & microwave. The beds were okay, a little on the soft side. I would recommend this hotel, I would've rated a 4/5 but the smoking room & the barking dog was annoying.

    We have stopped here for the last 2 years to break up our trip from Phoenix, AZ to Tahoe City, CA. Great spot and make us feel very welcome after a 9 hour drive. We get the family suite (2 rooms) for a great price. Breakfast is perfect before we leave early in the am. Now we need to find a Best Western going back (hopefully not as far as Las Vegas but past Tonopah)

    « Decent Stay in Desert Town »

    Tonopah was our overnight stop between Sedona and northern CA. A formerly bustling mining town has fallen on hard times but is making some improvements. This was a fine motel, with spacious rooms, refrigerator, micro. Breakfasts included hearty hot fare--this is the motel chosen my construction/trade workers on the road. A nice brew pub/BBQ is just across the street.

    « Great stay and would stay again »

    We finally tried the Best Western on our trip through Tonopah, town of few choices, and were not disappointed. We had a queen size room in the back building on the second floor away from the neighborhood street, AARP rate. The room was updated and very clean. There were quite a few outlets including a charging station on the nightstand. The refrigerator worked well and had a small freezer department. We did not use the microwave which also had two outlets. The bed worked out great, the pillows were very comfortable. I particularly liked the vinyl covered easy chair, an attractive pattern and very clean! The window had a privacy and black out curtain. The air conditioner worked well, but was a bit on the loud side. The bathroom was small, but with a separate sink area which worked out great for us. There was a coffee maker with giant porcelain! coffee cups, loved that. Check-in was fast, one of the clerks could have been friendlier. We liked the pm cookies. Check-out went well, also. There were quite a few choices for breakfast with great coffee in porcelain cups! We enjoyed the pool after a long day's drive. Would definitely stay here again.

    « Small town »

    We stayed in Tonopah on our way from Ely to Death Valley. Tonopah is not a nice town at all (sorry Tonopah!). We only stayed one night .... But the hotel was OK. It seemed to be in the process of a makeover. The hallway was smelly and depressing but there were signs posted to say it was in the process of being done over. We checked in after dark and the room itself at first seemed a little basement-y (we stayed on ground floor).... But in the morning sunlight it was bright and more inviting. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. My only complaint was that both of the sinks had slow drains. Really slow. That grosses me out, but other than that the room was fine. My kids swam in the pool and had fun. This hotel is probably your best bet in Tonopah if you want a nice clean room with a comfy bed.

    We were skeptical to stay here after driving through the desert for MILES. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel and this wonderfully quaint, small town. The hotel is under renovation, but that didn't stop them from making it a very pleasant experience. I was sad we were going to miss the 4th of July activities we heard so much about.

    This was our first visit to Tonopah. Hotel was easy to find & check in was fast! They are remodeling & was not inconvenient at all. Used our LE discount & got a roll away bed and the price was still a deal. Great pool area. Within walking distance to food & other places of interest in town. Go ghost adventures town!

    « Best Choice in Tonopah »

    I've stayed here a number of times over the years. They're doing a nice job of renovating the hallways and common areas which makes for a more pleasant stay. Although the pool is small it is nice to have available as a cooling off option on a warm summer day. My room was on the first floor and I was graced with considerate neighbors on both sides of me and above me. Thin walls have been an issue in the past so a little luck never hurts. There were a couple of stains on the carpet that ought to be cleaned but otherwise my room was just fine. I loved being able to make the room nice and cool for sleep on the very comfortable bed. TV selection was OK. The free wi-fi was reasonably fast for a hotel. My rate was very reasonable. Overall, I was very satisfied with my most recent stay.

    « Nice Place But Front Desk Person Unhelpful »

    This is perhaps the best place to stay at in Tonopah with nice rooms, presentable breakfast and other amenities. That being said we did have some difficulty with the staff that manned the front desk, and especially, the night clerk. The problem that we encountered after we had checked into our room is that we found the toilet to be not working and plugged-up. So, naturally, we notified the front desk of the problem and was informed that the maintenance person would take care of the problem......some time soon. Hours passed and no maintenance man appeared, and actually, never appeared by the time that we checked out at about 8:00AM. We did speak to the same front desk (night clerk) more than once and received the same assurance of assistance in a rather rude manner. Not a good experience.

    This small mining town was a nice stop for our drive from Colorado to California. I am so happy we decided to stay at the Best Western! The room is spacious. The fitness room is very nice with top of the line equipment and individual sleek tvs for most of the machines. After my workout, the pool was divine! Perfect temp and perfect size. A quick dip in the hot tub relaxed my muscles for a comfortable sleep in a cozy bed. In the morning, the breakfast had a great variety, including omelettes and bacon. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Not a lot of choices for overnight travelers, but this Best Western was top notch. Great staff, friendly upon arrival and throughout our 1 night stay. East ck in/out. Very modern front desk and lobby and the rooms were quite nice. Enjoyed having a 'fridge to keep stuff cold. It was HOT outside. Even had a special place just for motorcycles to park. THANK YOU. Breakfast server was INCREDIBLY attentive. She "knew" when something was out or needed replenishment just by listening ...

    « Excellent Breakfast - real eggs »

    The hotel is going through a minor renovation with new doors and paint otherwise I would give it five stars. The new doors will be a great improvement as I heard every word of conversations going on in the Hallway at 7 a.m. The room was comfortable, generally quiet, good wi-fi, great staff who are very friendly and helpful and excellent breakfast - real eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, danish and more. It is within walking distance of the Mizpah Hotel (and their restaurants), and a Tap Room across the street, and a pizza place is catacorner. I will definitely stay here again.

    Pretty good value. Nice pool, friendly staff, clean rooms. Beds a a bit soft, TV resolution was fair, excellent location. Quiet area, Cookies were delicious. A 200 character minimum is someones idea of a good idea?? Why, I have said all I want to say, you asked me to rate my experience, then you require me to make it longer then I want to make it, that makes no sense.

    « One night stay »

    We decided to stop at this best western since it was halfway through our vacation trip. It is a decent place to stay. The beds are clean and the room is roomy. We got two queen beds for four of us. The hotel is under renovation so the halls are in process of either getting painted or wallpapered. The room like it has been updated. It has a fridge and microwave. There is a drywall or dusty smell. It reminds me of cat litter but there is none to be found. The town is small. Overall, if I visited this town again, I will stay here.

    « Way better than the clown hotel »

    When driving into town we started to worry. We passed closed and dilapidated hotels. Also a clown-themed hotel. Then, like a mirage, we saw this one. We were so happy. The hotel is undergoing some work, so the hallways aren't great. The room itself was a great surprise. Comfortable beds and very clean. There is free breakfast and its across the street from a great BBQ place.

    We had been driving all day and Tonopah was the closest place with an open room. The room was clean and comfortable. There is remodeling in progress but didn't affect our stay. Not bad for the price. It's close to where they meet for the tours of the mines.

    « Smokers Dream »

    This is a very nice hotel that is being destroyed by smokers. The rooms have been remodeled and are very nice and clean, except even though it was non-smoking room, it smells like smoke. Halls were under construction, but clean. Smoke smell is everywhere. Lastly, there is no elevator, so if you have a lot of luggage or can't do stairs, you may want to request a first floor room. Bed was comfy. TV and appliances were new and quite.

    « Great people, great service »

    We stayed at the Best Western in Tonopah while on the way to Yosemite. Right before driving into Tonopah, the low tire pressure light came on. We had a screw in a tire, but due to the late hour, we had to wait until the next day to get it fixed. The tire couldn't be repaired and there was not a replacement tire available. Our car rental company sent us a replacement car, but that required a 5 hour delay to our leaving town. The staff at the Best Western was very helpful. They gave us a late checkout and then let us hang out in the lobby - with all of our luggage - until the car arrived. We even had pizza delivered and ate in the lobby. The staff was very accommodating during our unexpected adventure, and they helped make the situation a bit better. Regarding the hotel, the room was great, fully stocked with plenty of towels, cups, and extra pillows. And the breakfast was great!

    « High Desert Inn »

    wonderful hotel in a small mining town in Nevada. Was very clean and the room was larger than usual. The location is in the center of town and several places to eat are located close by. Fresh cold drinks at check in what a great idea. The breakfast was nice and well maintained. The big coffee mugs in the room were muck nicer than paper cups. Highly recommend this lovely inn.

    « Mediocre motel »

    This motel might have gotten a better review if we hadn't been put in the annex on our second visit. The rooms there are very poorly designed: you walk in to find the wash basin on your left, and on your right a tiny room with a toilet and bathtub. The entry cards had to be put in repeatedly to work, and this, even after being "refreshed" at the desk. The breakfast area was too small for the number of guests, and very crowded. Very ordinary offerings.

    « 7000 feet and climbing »

    The High Desert Inn, Tonopah is at 7000' elevation but if you try to exercise like you do at sea level the thin air will become very apparent. We like Tonopah. There is a ruggedness to it not seen in the low lands. The very nature of this desert mining community speaks of self reliance. The room was comfortable and clean, the king bed was very good and we liked the powerful shower. The breakfast area was exceptional and Pam was a treasure of efficiency and information. Our room was quiet and the ambiance of this old West town was appreciated. We misplaced our traveling safe key and the BW recommended Jeff Galli. We got our safe open with a new key and he worked through a troubling mistake in the manufacturers paperwork. He figured out their mistake and made a one of a kind key for us. Now that is service. OoRah! He's a Marine Viet-Vet too, a "doc" no less and that's saying something.

    « Nothing good,,,nothing bad »

    Mt wife and I travel quite a bit for both business and pleasure and usually try to stay at Best Westerns because we believe overall they have the best bang for the buck. Well maybe with one exception. This small motel in Tonopah Nevada is quite dingy and on the older side. I have bad breathing problems and find it very difficult to walk stairs. Wouldn't you know it, that is the floor they put us on even though we called ahead of time to make sure we are on the first floor. That worked well...NOT! The rooms were acceptable, clean, quite a a good bed.. The lighting was so-so but that is was no biggie. The water pressure in the shower could have been better, but I have been to worse. The morning breakfast was OK. It was typically the type found at Best Westerns. They did have 2 employees working it and I must say they were quite helpful and friendly.

    « Comfortable Way Station »

    We booked a room in Tonopah for the night. We'd been visiting Zion National Park, and were looking for a stopping off point midway between Zion and our home town. We'd wanted to stay at the historic and pet-friendly Mizpah Hotel, but they were booked, so I chose the Best Western. Not a bad choice. With apologies to the good people of Tonopah, I guess the worst thing about this property is that it is located in Tonopah, which we found to be a depressing little town. The Best Western allows pets, but guests can't leave their pet unattended in the room (not even a quiet, well-behaved, crate-trained pet). This poses some logistical problems if the weather is warm and you want to go out for a meal, do some sightseeing, attend an event, or enjoy the outdoors. We didn't see much in the way of shady parking during the day. Towards the evening, the buildings downtown afford some shade for vehicles parked along the street. But during the heat of summer, shade alone might not be enough to keep one's pet safe and comfortable in the confines of one's car. At the end of this review, I've listed a couple of dining suggestions for guests who are travelling with a pet and staying at this hotel. As for other pros and cons: Pros: *There are a few dining options within walking distance of the hotel, including the Mizpah, which also has a casino. *Clean room. Comfortable bed. *Small refrigerator and microwave in the room. *Bathroom has a shower/tub combination and two sinks - one in the room with the lavatory, another in a vanity outside the bathroom door. *Hotel is currently being remodeled. The owners appear to be investing some money into sprucing the place up. The breakfast room appeared to be recently remodeled. It was clean and pleasant, with modern furnishings. *Decent complimentary breakfast. Reconstituted scrambled eggs, sausage links, cereals, breads, pastries, yogurt. (They also had breakfast potatoes, but those were dry and spongy.) Cons: *Remodeling work was underway during our stay. While this will not be a long term problem, it was a little noisy while the workers were there. Fortunately, they left at 5:00 p.m. Other consequences of the renovation work: the pool was not in service, our room had a view of the construction material storage area, and there was a barrel of construction debris on our floor directly in front of the ice machine. *We had a non-smoking room, but there was a very strong smell from old cigarette smoke in the lobby. *This hotel has no elevator. We had to lug our bags up the flight of stairs to our room. *There is a landscaped gazebo area that can be used for dog-walking. But the landscaping has been neglected, and the area is unattractive. Bottom-line: This place will probably be much nicer after the remodeling is completed, making it a decent choice for folks who find themselves in Tonopah for the night. But if you're travelling with your dog in the heat of summer, you may want to check out the Mizpah's pet policy, to see if it's less restrictive than at this hotel. Tips for dining with Fido: *The barbecue restaurant across the street from this hotel has a few shaded picnic tables. They permit pets in this area. *There are some picnic tables at this hotel's gazebo, though most are not in the shade, and all but one were in disrepair during our visit. *A restaurant down the street (Cisco's) has signs advertising that they deliver. (Presumably, they also offer take-out food.) So you could get food to go or delivered, and eat in the room. Our room didn't have a table and chairs, so we'd have wound up using the ottoman in our room as a substitute table if we'd chosen this option.

    My daughter and I stayed here on our first road trip to Vegas, from Reno. The location is very convenient and the desk clerk was friendly. You can walk pretty much anywhere in town from this location. The room was large, but I thought the price was a bit steep for Tonopah.

    « Good enough. »

    The room we ended up in was nice - clean and comfortable. But getting there took some doing. We'd asked for a quiet, no-pet room. They put us on the ground floor on the highway side of the building. When we objected, we were put on the second floor, but right next to the stairway and a very noisy ice maker. Our third try landed us in a room further away from the ice machine, but on the highway side of the building (we were told that people with pets get the quieter inside rooms!)

I would stay here again. Thought the price was a bit high, but they were open. Better than the other place!

    « Best in town, but way pricier than it should be »

    Basically clean, typical Best Western. Some nights, this place fills up and the parking lots get full. Breakfast is okay but gets crowded. This is the nicest place in Tonopah, but it isn't as nice as the prices would indicate. For this town, and for what you get, the prices are just not justified, but there are few other choices (really only one other choice if you're not willing to stay in a low budget dive). Microwave and fridge is a major bonus for a town with few eating options, especially for anyone with an alternative diet or sensitive digestive system. Do not stay in the separate back building - lower quality and filled with smokers. Stay in the front building, in the wing not next to the highway. The highway sounds are really not that bad, though. Overall, it can be a nice, quiet stay--dawn and dusk are especially beautiful here, as Tonopah is in a beautiful location even if the town itself is mostly composed of the ugly scars of mining and celebrations thereof. If you have to stay in Tonopah, consider staying here. If you can push through to Fallon (northbound), you'll get a better deal.

    « Simple but sufficient »

    I am neither a cruel reviewer, nor a soft one, I think. My top criteria for hotels, as we travel around during retirement, have been: budget price if possible; super clean; all necessities supplied (our needs are simple, and we don't often forget toothpaste); all facilities function and none are broken; rapid hot water on tap (at least 3 minutes-worth in the shower); and relative quiet. Of course, in this state, where hotels are few and far between outside of Las Vegas and Reno, one has to compromise. Tonohpah has this good option, which we tried, and another that I'm eager to try. Note that this is an area central to 2 gold mines and a lithium mine, so not only are open spots unpredictably hard to get, but prices are fairly steep. Our advice is to reserve ahead if possible. Best Western here has an odd, two-building design, and parking is tight and tricky for Bldg. 2. The ONLY double available for us during a cold, windy, snowy mid-week in March was the ?suite,? a spacious two-room set up with one queen bed and a cot and desk in the second room. We took it, and did not regret. It is plain, but satisfied all of our criteria, and had a microwave to warm up previous meal ?doggie-boxes.? A block down the street is a wonderfully well-renovated old hotel ((the Mizpah) with a pretty good restaurant and a variety of offerings on its menu. Not fancy, but warm and welcome. The interesting old ghost mining town of Berlin and Icthyosaur State Park (wonderful fish fossils) are an hour of beautiful Shoshone mountain driving away; however it is closed in winter.

    « Double Check the type of room you are given »

    I have stayed at Hi Desert BW before. Anytime I travel I try to stay in a Best Western. The Hi Desert Inn is perfect for the trips I take from Las Vegas to Reno a couple of times a year. The hotel has done a renovation to the lobby and it is outstanding. The decor is beautiful and they have a sitting area with a fireplace and coffee. The room was very nice and the bed was huge! The issue I had was, unbeknownst to me, they put me in a pet friendly room. I am allergic to dog hair. I called the front desk clerk, who offered to bring me lysol (?), and let me know there were no other rooms available. So I spent a very uncomfortable night and checked out at 4 a.m. I have never had that issue before. But it was a lesson learned. From now on I will make sure I ask for a non-pet friendly room.

    « Unexpected pleasure »

    This was our second visit to Tonopah. We stayed at the Mitzpah hotel in the first visit but were treated as second citizens as there were lots of workers from the Solar Farm. We decided this year to stay at the Best Western Hi Dessert and what a pleasure. We arrived an hour before check in but no bother and straight to our room which was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing with so many choices, coffee excellent to someone who much prefers tea. Staff very pleasant. Good laundry, excellent cookies in the evening, so much better than our previous stay in a more expensive Mitzpah hotel.

    « A good hotel to stay at »

    This hotel is well located with the town well within easy walk. Close to the mining museum and close to a few eating places. the rooms are well appointed very clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and attentive. they have an outside pool but due to the time of year it was closed. Breakfast was good with a very good choice of food on offer. Take a room on upper floor at the back of the hotel. The hotel is close to the road, that said its not a busy road, well not when we were there.

    I will stay at a Best Western if it is in the area knowing that I will get the best value and a great room. Been using them for 45 years, you can't go wrong using them. Call them direct or use one of the other hotel searches, they will get you a good room at Best Western

    We stayed here on our way home from our trip to Death Valley National Park. I did not realize it was a pet friendly hotel until we arrived. I tend to avoid pet friendly hotels due to my allergies. Fortunately I did not have any issues. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. I felt it was a good value for the money. Complimentary breakfast was also good.

    « Misled on amenities »

    booked this room at 105.00 a night because on hotels.com it said there was mini golf. I had been traveling 8 hrs in car with my young grandsons, they were excited to get out and play. There is no golf! When asking clerk about it she seemed indifferent. I would've stayed somewhere else for much less money. The room was not worth 105 and service was not good.

    « Good for Short Stay Only »

    Upon arrival at approximately 1:30pm, after a 4 hour drive, a room was not ready for check in. That in itself is not unusual, however, the check in clerk offered no solutions of any kind. Could have offered to check me in and store my luggage until a room was ready. Instead, I was told to come back later and check in. Did not offer to call or text me when a room was ready. I was not able to return until 9:00pm that evening when conference meetings were over. I then had to locate my room in the dark. The entrance to the rooms were in another building away from the check in office and not clearly marked. Parking was difficult and I felt uncomfortable parking and then walking in the dark to my room.

    « The Best, Best Western Ever »

    I made my reservation while traveling. I called the front desk and got a very nice person that had me room in minutes. We arrived that night to get a great room. It was a king bed, non smoking and pet friendly. The room was very clean and smelled nice. I have vacation rentals that I clean myself and I know where to look when it comes to cleaning. At the check in desk they had dog biscuits and dog poop clean up bags in a really neat dog bone container. Its really hard to be a pet friendly accommodation, people need to follow pet rules better if they wish places like this to be pet friendly. We made our reservation for one night and ended up staying for 3. Their breakfast was really good and a little different every day. A very nice lady taking care of the breakfast room even made my waffle for me after seeing fighting with it. ( can't believe a waffle maker was getting the best of me.) The owner/manager? asked us every day how our room was. They had cookies and coffee in the lobby every night. I loved it, I would get some each night to snack on before bed. They were full but still made us feel like we were the only guest there. I can't wait to return to Tonopah, I love the area and this is only place I will stay is here. One last thing about the front desk staff, If I could steal them I would take in a minute, Great front desk people are hard to find. Thanks

    This is a great hotel; neat, clean and a great breakfast. The staff goes out of their way to make your stay what you want it to be. The manager comes around every morning at breakfast and asks how your service/room/breakfast/experience has been and if there is any way she can improve it. Book ahead though as this place fills up fast.

    « Many Thanks »

    My partner and I stayed in Tonopah from Monday through Friday. We not only had business in Tonopah but a lot of the surrounding towns, which means we had to be up early and on the road. We definitely appreciated Betty and the fabulous breakfast every morning. When booking the room I thought that "free breakfast" meant the normal continental breakfast. I was wrong! Betty had everything from waffles, omelets, bacon/sausage, potatoes, fruit, oatmeal, and many more. Overall, it was a great place to lay our heads for a good night's rest! Thank you for everything and we will see you on the next time through!

    « Clean, Friendly, Comfortable, Very Good Breakfast »

    This was a great place to stay. We were here for a week and found it to be very comfortable. Betty at breakfast was extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely will stay again. There was a good size refrigerator in the room and the temperature was easy to regulate. Comfortable beds. Clean buildings, rooms, and hallways. Pool only open in warm months. Gym available. The highlight really was the breakfast each morning; cooked eggs, potatoes, and sausage or bacon. Fresh waffles, hard boiled eggs. Dairy alternative; almond milk. Coffee, tea, coco. Basically great selection for a free breakfast.

    « Best Option! »

    The Best Western staff is always friendly and helpful. The amenities are excellent--in particular the breakfast. It's much more than a basic continental breakfast, and Betty does a superb job of keeping everything ready and clean. She's a gem! The beds are some of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in, and there are lots of plugs available for multiple devices (and free wi-fi!).

    The Best Western is the best hotel in Tonopah, and indeed is as nice as any mid-tier hotel I've stayed at in many cities. They have recently upgraded their lobby, common areas, and breakfast area and it looks really great. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have all the amenities you would want, including a refrigerator and microwave. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful too. And make sure you check out the Tonopah BBQ and Brewery right across the street.

    This is a little gem in the middle of Nevada that my parents recommended to me. It was clean and the staff was over the top friendly. The ladies that ran the breakfast seemed to take pleasure in keeping the area spotless and well-stocked. I have to say it was the best I've seen. The front-desk ladies were also very pleasant and informative. They do allow animals, so make sure if you're allergic they put you in a non-pet room. I'm highly allergic to cats and mildly allergic to dogs and I didn't have any problems. I highly recommend this hotel.

    I'd accidentally booked a smoking room and the hotel was full so we had to put up with a smoky room. Other than that the hotel was clean, well stocked, friendly staff, great breakfast and convenient. Definitely a good choice! Located on Main Street in Tonopah, great for passing through and plenty of dining options you can walk to in the evening.

    No issues here just a basic hotel room. Not a lot around the town so options are limited. My family of 4 stayed here. Everything worked as it should, the one staff member we saw was courteous. The bar/grill across the street was pretty good although it was about the only thing open at that time. No complaints.

    « Great stopping point on way to Tahoe »

    Tonopah was the most convenient place for us to stop on our way to Lake Tahoe and the Best Western Hi-Desert Inn was a very good choice of accommodations. The rooms are very large and comfortable. In fact, the rooms were larger than most Best Western Plus Inns where we have stayed. Front desk gals were very pleasant and check in went very quickly as did check out the next morning. Breakfast is usually included when staying at a Best Western facility. Most reviews that we read were very positive about the breakfast offerings at this location. This, however, was not our experience. There was a breakfast omelet, but it was plain. The breakfast potatoes were on the dry and crunchy side. The bagels were on the stale side. We ate breakfast at 7 a.m., so it wasn't that the food had been sitting out for that long a time period. Breakfast that day was not very good. The hotel itself was very nice, thus my Very Good rating.

    Check in/out was quick and easy. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was large and clean. We went straight to the pool after check in and it was dark but there was plenty of light. The hot tub and pool were a really nice temperature, clean and towels were provided at reception. With the heat through the day it was very welcome. Breakfast is included and is the normal cereal, bread, waffles, bagels, jams, fruit, etc. with plenty of juice, coffee and tea. In the lobby area there was always tea/coffee and cookies available. This is an old historic mining town with plenty of history and museums. My only regret was only being here for one night as we didn't have time to explore fully. Only complaint would be no safe in the room. Would I stay here again? Definitely Would I recommend it to a friend? Absolutely

    Our room was in the annex behind the hotel. The room was clean and fairly new, but I felt slightly uncomfortable with the parking on an alley that would not be well lit at night. We moved our car to the front part of the hotel parking because we didn't want somebody breaking in. The only other downside was the internet, which didn't want to work. Called their helpline, and they couldn't fix it. The woman at the front desk finally fixed it, but it took awhile. She said they had been having problems all month. The breakfast was great, and the server very friendly. All and all, it was a nice property with friendly people. I was a bit surprised at the price of the rooms in such a small little out of the way town, however!

    « Another Quality Stay »

    We had our second stay here and I'm writing this without referring to my first. The stay was nice but I booked a queen bedded room to save $s, hoping to be upgraded to a king in the main building. The queen bedded rooms are in the annex building behind. These rooms have room enough but that is about it. They have a large easy chair beside the bed and space enough to walk around the bed. The room had a desk area and a TV mounted to the wall. There was a small refrigerator and microwave in a cabinet on the wall with the window. The AC worked well, the room was clean and there were more TV channels than you would expect to find in Tonopah - there is no cable provider here and only satellite TV but the hotel did not have satellite - interesting. The vanity counter is separate from the bathroom, with a long counter and plenty of toiletry space. The bathroom lights were, initially, difficult to locate as they are on the middle of the wall inside the bathroom. There are no elevators in the hotel so, if you have difficulty dragging bags you will want to request a first floor room. The hotel was full when we stayed but I was not bothered by noise from any other guests - most were mature adults. They had four different types of cookies set out in the late afternoon and the supply seemed endless. Most hotels that have cookies for their guests tend to run out quickly as they make a few dozen and are finished. Not so here - you will not be disappointed if you like cookies. Breakfast was solid. The breakfast area is very nicely done and inviting. The morning we were there they offered chicken fried steak and country gravy as the ?special? item. They rotate the special between different types of omelets, sausage gravy and biscuits, and scrambled eggs with ham. I think they have regular scrambled eggs every day. All the other items you would expect to find were present - breads, pastries, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal. They are serious about coffee here. They have a bold (French Roast) in addition to regular coffee. They also have eight different syrups and liquid creamers (regular and Pumpkin Spice today) and powdered creamers. You can really personalize your coffee here. I stay in 200 hotel rooms per year and most are single nights all over the world. I have never seen this extensive variety of coffee flavorings anywhere else. The syrups included raspberry and peach! I also noticed that the housekeeping staff were very friendly - holding doors open, smiling and welcoming. The front desk team was fine but the housekeeping staff stood out. This really is a comfortable place and you can tell the owners care.

    If you travel the Las Vegas to Tahoe route often, Tonopah is a great stop over and has 2 pretty nice hotels and 2 slot casinos. This Best Western is very nice, has updated rooms, free wifi, pool, hot breakfast, and clean quiet comfy rooms/beds. The lots that the buildings are adjacent to are sad and the views of the house next door from the Annex building is pretty lousy, yet the hotel property itself is neat and well kept.
