We were driving from the Grand Tetons National Park to Las Vegas and needed to make an overnight rest stop. Luckily I decided on Ely and lucked into the Prospector Hotel. It is a very unique hotel, good Mexican restaurant, and casino. The rooms are decorated in a Western style, including pictures and guns.

Check in was welcoming, friendly and quick. Arrived on a motorcycle and were advised we could park under main entrance veranda with reception being able to see it 24 hours which was great. . Our room was exceptionally clean and well equipped -even a toothbrush. Having a few ornaments and pieces displayed on shelves in the room gave it added... More

We arrived late and were greeted warmly at reception, which was wonderfully kitsch. We were given vouchers for free margaritas and for the slot machines, which was a lovely touch. The hotel is old fashioned but in a good way, the rooms are large and individually decorated, even the hallways are filled with local art. The free wifi was good... More

I really liked this hotel. The room was large and very well equipped with extras that make the stay a little nicer--i.e., magnifying mirror and toothpaste. The restaurant served excellent food at very fair prices. It was a nice place to stay after a long day of driving.

Booked here for two nights based on Tripadvisor reviews, and it did not disappoint. The lobby is pretty interesting with classic motorbikes, real-size stuffed animals, and other western artifacts. The hallways have a bold designed carpet and the hallway walls are tastefully decorated with paintings and pictures, both of which were a refreshing change from the usual play-it-safe approach. Keep... More

The lobby is like a little museum and they were offering free popcorn when we signed in and that was the beginning of a lovely stay. Our room was large and efficient - safe, fridge, and micro - and there was attention to decorating detail that you seldom see in other hotels as they usually just go with pictures. Also... More

We stayed when we were On the way from Arizona to Idaho, this hotel was recommended by a family member. The rooms (we stayed both ways) were very clean and good sized. The staff is very friendly. There is no elevator, so if stairs are a challenge ask for a first floor room. We would stay there again.

Probably the best place to stay in Ely, Nevada. This place has character, the lobby and the rooms and even the hallways are full of unique decorative items descriptive of the area. There is a small casino attached which is quaint in itself. Everyone was very friendly. The walls are thin however and you can hear any noise in the... More

Our king room smelled fresh and had very nice furnishings. Also a 47" flat screen TV! Lots of desk and computer area. Very friendly staff at check in. The mattress was very comfortable.....one of the best we have had in a hotel. We had a refrig., microwave and a safe. The attached Mexican restaurant was very good. Our only complaint... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was ranked #1 on Tripadvisor and we are definitely glad we did! Rooms were comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful, casino was the perfect size and loved the bar! Wish we could have stayed a few more nights at this place.
