We stopped for a room, a shower, do some laundry, & nice meals. Very pleasant room. A very large screen tv, a shock after camping without power for four nights. Even had toothbrush and toothpaste in the room along witb coffee and tea...Wolfgang Puck's brand. A rubber ducky in the bathroom with a full tub. We got a free Las... More

My husband and I were traveling back home to Oregon from Texas. The night before we were in Durango, Co. Being very tired I suggested that we stay the night in Ely. We have stayed in our RV many times before in Ely, this was the first time at a hotel. I looked at tripadvisor (of course) for places to... More

I don't "do" casinos so was reluctant to stay here, however the price was very reasonable and it worked out beautifully. The lobby and casino area were smoky so I was on alert, however the rooms are all non-smoking and the hallways and room didn't smell at all. There was a drink vouncher and we were able to bring them... More

Coming into Ely, there's lots of different hotels, motels, etc to choose from. I saw a billboard for Prospector Hotel and Casino and decided to check the place out. The price was very reasonable so I checked in. They're biker friendly and allowed me to park my bike at the entrance under the overhang. There's also a RV park as... More

We were very happy with room 114 for the price. Very interesting eclectic accents inside & outside this hotel - worth spending some time studying! Beautiful chandeliers throughout! Very good restaurant. Especially good salmon dinner. And we were able to get oatmeal for bkfast even though not on menu. Enjoyed the hot tub being open till 11. 2 suggestions -... More

Rt 50 is truly the "Loneliest Road in America". I don't know what's worse: the Mohave-like desert, the dusty areas with no vegetation at all, the desolate lunar landscapes or the big ugly dark-gray mountains coming "in your face": threatening, unfriendly, pretty similar to a much of the Utah populace I've met. Finally, we cross the border and we are... More

Greeted by unique, huge dog statues in the saloon decorated lobby. Given free coupons for two margaritas at the bar and discounted gambling coupons. Room was immaculate and well supplied with toiletries and a friendly rubber ducky in the bath.

What a surprise. In our travels over the past 30 years around the country, we've avoided smoky casinos and so, with my wife's disapproval, I booked the Prospector Hotel and Casino in Ely because their rates and online features and photos looked pretty good. We stayed for four nights and loved it. Great service, ultra clean and comfortable room, nice... More

We came upon Ely, NV after traveling the Loneliest Road with our dog around midnight. We fortunately had called ahead for a reservation (we were referred by La Quinta which was full). When we arrived in the town there were probably 50 or more motels on the main road. After checking in at what appeared to be another roadside motel... More
