Clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly and we received great service. There is even an indoor pool that our little onesenjoyed. We will be back the next time we travel that way. Definitely exceeds all expectations!

The Prospector is a great choice in Ely and probably the best stay in town. The rooms are big and recently remodeled with nice modern decor. The beds are comfortable. The Prospector is a top 3 star hotel experience. A couple tips: Book direct rather than through aggregator so you can get the AAA or other discounts Margarita's in the... More

We were checked in by a very nice woman and given coupons for 2 free margaritas and $3.00 of game play, which was nice, BUT when we went to our room with our dog, we were amazed to see: tile floors, dog bed, super cute pics and paintings of dogs, dog treats and poop bags. I have included pics because... More

By far the nicest hotel in the area! I travel through Ely sereval times a year for work and have stayed at all the major hotels and none compare to this place. Even a free margarita and megabucks pull with check-in. Simply impressed,,

Ok....don't let this place fool you from the outside. The surprise is inside. Crazy collection of mining paraphenalia,, motorcycles, great cowboy art and on and on. Quite Delightful actually. Slots!! Free drinks & a waitress! Room was very comfortable and clean. Caution: shower quite dark. That is the only thing to complain about. Heard the restaurant was good but didn't... More

Both my husband and I travel often and this is one of the nicer properties we have stayed at. Staff was friendly, everything was clean and the hotel was recently remodeled. The onsite restaurant and lounge was convenient and reasonable. We will definitely be back here if we're in the area!

The pros: The staff was friendly and the gal in the restaurant makes the best margarita you'll find for $5. The cons: The hallways stink of stale cigarette smoke. We were far from the tiny "casino" (just some slot machines) but the smoke stench goes far down the hall. The walls are thin and besides hearing people the plumbing is... More

Elizabeth W, Manager at Prospector Hotel and Casino, responded to this review

This situation is one of the unfortunate pitfalls of the hospitality industry. We are exposed to people from all walks of life, with a wide range of needs, on a daily basis. We take all complaints seriously. Regarding the smoke " stench" we installed new smoke eaters about six months ago. To the best of my knowledge, we haven't received... More

We delivered an aluminum statue of a COW and stayed the night. People were super welcoming and friendly, and the room we had was awesome. First rate all the way! Amenities were all you need: pool and nice jacuzzi, weight room, slot machines if you're so inclined. We ate at their new Mexican restaurant; I had the best shrimp I've... More

Our room was truly equipped with our pups in mind. Our room is right by the exit for easy outs. Tile floors, dog beds, dog biscuits, etc. We have stayed here before, but our room this time was my favorite. Picture frames and decor of old barn wood, nicely crafted, with old mining photos. Tables and headboard of barrels and... More

Great facilities and a superb Mexican Restaurant. We always travel with our dogs and they were treated like royalty. They have a motorcycle display featruring antique Harleys and Indians. We even received free maragaritas at check-in. We will definitely be back.
