My stay at El Capitan was not planned. The resort/casino is older but the motel rooms have been updated. We requested a non-smoking room and there was no odor of any kind. The room was clean and the beds and pillows comfortable. I was surprised how full the motel was; if there was someone in the room below or next...

Our room was very old and dirty decor was 60s and it smelled like the 60s beds were hard as a rock and sagged on edges. Horrible night was glad to leave. If they have remodeled rooms we never saw one .

I was there this past weekend with a group of friends. We have been coming to the El Capitan every September since 2008. We bring between 50 and 100 guests every year. Every year, a large portion of our group spends its entire Saturday at the pool. This year when we booked we were told that rooms by the pool...

Everything worked. The things I didn't like was the heavy, cover up smell of something sprayed in the room and the carpet was so...

So the hotel is old, showing its age, the bed works, the internet mostly works, I have rarely seen more than 20% of the rooms occupied, but it works. It is cheap, the food in the casino is acceptable, and the location is right where I want it to be on my travels between Idaho and California.

A pretty decent facility for the middle of nowhere. The hotel rooms were a little older decoration inside, but pretty spacious and clean. The slot machine casino across the street had a few people playing at most hours. The bartender was friendly and things seemed pretty affordable. Enjoyed the cafe atmosphere restaurant. American homestyle food. On the main highway through...

Non stop construction noise Rude front desk personnel however that's getting better. A pool that is used more by employees than guests. Ants. And the newest...
