We have traveled through Ely, NV several times and this was our first stay at the Prospector. This hotel pays attention to detail! Clean, accommodating, there is a restaurant and lounge on site and the casino was very comfortable. We will definitely be back!!!

We spent one night here on our way to Great Basin National Park. It was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed. It is an older property, but is well maintained. There is a small casino as well as a restaurant on site. We appreciated the fact that we didn't have to get back in the car for... More

Stayed one night on a recent road trip across Nevada that included a stop at Great Basin National Park. The hotel is a bit of an older property so there are a few signs of wear. That said, the staff was friendly and accommodations clean. The on site restaurant is convenient but if you have time to go into town... More

I found this hotel to be clean and the staff, very accommodating. They have a restaurant on sight, which after a long day on the road, made it easy to get a bit to eat. If you fill lucky they have a casino too. For a one or two night stay I would recommend Prospector Hotel and Casino.

This was a great little place to stay. Clean, comfortable beds, really nice staff. Pets are very, very welcome...dog biscuits, dog bed, the works! Restaurant is good too. Not fancy or gourmet, but very nice. I liked the small casino too...I won 52 cents on the penny machines! We liked it so much on the way that we stopped again... More

We stopped here after visiting the Lehman Caves. The staff was great, the room was nice and clean and the restaurant was outstanding. It was a cute surprise to see a rubber duck near the bath tub and candy at our pillows!! Should we ever travel this way again, we most definitely will be stopping here again.

Commuting between Colorado and Ca. we stopped for the night in Ely, Nv. We are used to having our black lab sleep in our car, but discovered for $10 our dog was welcome in our room. That, we discovered included a cozy dog bed, 4 bone treats, little doggie poopie bag, and a rubber duck to play with. There was... More

The Prospector was a great surprise. I have stayed at several locations in Ely with disappointing results. This time I picked The Prospector which is located just out of town on the highway heading north. Rooms were nice, clean and modern. Beds were reasonably comfortable. The onsite restaurant was very good. There is an RV park to the north side... More

Thanks to the good reviews on TripAdvisor, I opted to stay at the Prospector Hotel and Casino while visiting Ely this past weekend. I will say that the reviews here are legitimate: this place is a gem and a bargain. The rooms are very clean and even had mints and suckers on the bed. The hallway looked like it had... More

Stayed here because it was about a midway point on my trip. Stayed in the pet wing even thought we did not have our pet with us this trip. The room was really neat. All done in a mining theme, really unique. If you have a pet, this is a nice place to stay. They have big dog beds for... More
