Why pay up and stay at a stuffy "B&B"...stay here and meet a real owner who cares. Andy makes it fun and that is so cool. Walk around Silverton and explore some local pubs and local pubs. After seeing some local pubs you might want to take a nap in your wonderful king size at the Prospector.

Upon arrival in Silverton at ~ 6:00 p.m. I looked for a place to stay as I had travelled a long way on my motorcycle that day. I went to the office and there was a note on the door to call the owner. He was having dinner at home but arrived very quickly. We had a great chat and... More

The rooms were clean, comfy and big! Reminded me of a 70's cabin feel but just added to the ambience of the town! No fridge, or microwave but cable tv and the wifi is decent but to be expected in small mountain towns. Stocked with clean towels and extra soap and toilet paper. Friendly owner as well.

I was surprised at the reasonable cost and how clean it was. It was fun to have a place to stay while I explored this quaint little town. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Not fancy, but everything worked just fine!

We so enjoyed our stay, the rooms were clean, roomy and in a great location to walk through the town to all of the shops. We wished we could have stayed longer but we had to head home early due to the flooding rains that hit Colorado during this time. Love this town.

During my stay in Silverton, Co I had to stay at two different hotels. This hotel I believe has the lowest rates. No fridge, Micro. The room was clean and comfortable. I would stay there again. Hotel is located in the center of town.

for the area the price is good, location is great, very basic room no phones, older motel very friendly owner, not the quietest, but for one night stay it will definitely do. the best part was it was within walking distance of all the stops shops and restaurants! its kinda like stepping back in time!

This is probably the cheapest place to stay in Silverton -- I think I paid $50+tax during peak aspen season. And while the accommodations are bare-bones, there's nothing wrong with the place. The bed is a little old, the TV was small and reception was spotty and the bathroom was what I'd call "old school", but the property is well... More
