too many different buildings, some very nice people and one very nasty (male) bartender. great ribs and raw potato for dinner, waitress very nice, busser abrupt. Rooms mediocre at best, poor lighting, water spraying everywhere. Next time I'll stay at the Prospector.

I do like how the theme is carried to the documentation in the room. :) Stopped in Ely with no reservations and discovered a recommended motel was closed for the night. As this was right across the street, swung in to see if any room was available. I requested a ground floor room so was asked if the "pet room"... More

I stayed int this hotel for 3 nights. It was a nice little room with everything I needed and nothing I didn't. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. There was a fridge, and the showers were clean as well. The water pressure and temperature was perfect, and there is a built in blow dryer as well. and... More

Our room was clean, comfy, beds were good. It was very convenient to the rest of the town. This was just a stop over after a very long travel day. We had breakfast in the Jailhouse BBQ cafe and it was great! I ordered a scone...it was more like a sopapilla! The waitress called it a "Mormon scone!"

we were planning to stay but unfortunately our bike broke down. They were kind enough to not charge due to our situation. So Thank You Jasmine! Once we got going again a day later, stopped by restaurant for lunch. Had 1/2 sandwich and salty chicken noodle soup. Wasn't too bad. Place was very old. Took out my phone for western... More

Ely, Nevada is a very old and small town so there isn't much to choose from in the way of hotels. If I ever visit again I would go with a more expensive motel/hotel. Although the beds were firm and the room appeared clean there are some definite issues. The chairs were badly soiled and burn holes in the carpet.... More

If we were to stay in Ely again it wouldn't be at the Jailhouse casino and hotel. At $70.00 plus there such be a very poor attempt to hide mold on the floor next to the tub. It is convenient to the casino that I won a few bucks. Smallest tv in any of the places we have stay in... More

Nice people to deal with, clean place, and good value. Right on the main drag and across the street from a good restaurant for dinner and a good cafe for breakfast. Not much in Ely. A pleasant surprise.

As you arrive you are greeted by a host who will later stand at your table and discuss how awefull you are for eating then sticking around to chat because he needs the table yet the back is empty, very rude . The salads are wilted and steaks have no seasoning and did not have the demi glace I came... More

Apparently we lucked out when I called to book here. Never stayed here before and was completely unaware that they had rooms inside the casino, their website only showed the annex buildings that were across the street. When we checked in our room was just a few steps down the hall. The room itself is small very, very outdated, it... More
