Great midway point between the big parks! Rooms were nice. Gaming facility has good combination/decent variety of slots, poker, keno etc. The real STARS to be found here are the staff and the on site food. Nice to have staff come to you to ask, "How is your room?" Or "Is everything to your satisfaction, do you need anything else?"... More

We spent two nights here, tourist ing around Ely. Nice hotel with comfortable beds and nice toiletries. Carpet in our room was a bit stained in spots but the room overall was pretty clean. Small casino on premises with a good selection. As others have noted, they are a bit slow but the food is good. Staff was very friendly... More

Arriving in Wells, Nevada, earlier than anticipated, and having no reservations anyway, we decided to continue on our road trip towards Las Vegas. We ended up finding exceptionally reasonable lodging at The Prospector Hotel and Casino in Ely. What a terrific find! Check-in was a breeze. The only amenity missing from the hotel is an elevator and all of the... More

The front desk staff is friendly and welcoming. The outdoor decor is very cute. The rooms are clean except for the carpet. There were stains and damage on the carpet that kind of grossed me out. But. Overall the rooms were decorated nicely. Clean fresh bed linens and quality amenities. The hallway has historic photos that are fun to look... More

We received 2 free margaritas and $3.00 to play in the casino that was also very clean with friendly... More

Getting into Ely Nevada around 6:30 pm midweek,we were surprised to find a convention in town and stopping at several places like La Quinta were told nothing left in the whole town except for a suite for over $150. We stopped downtown at the Jailhouse casino motel and even though they didn' t have a room available, they were the... More

Consistent, well run no surprises. When we travel with our cat she loves the pet rooms. The thought put into these rooms is excellent as well as the comfort in all rooms. Nice pool in the middle of the Nevada desert.

On our previous trips through Ely, we have over nighted at a number of the motels. To us this is the best value in Ely. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Our room came with 2 queen beds. At check-in we received coupons for 2 margaritas, a $3.00 slot machine play and a newspaper. Our only negative comment was... More

Way out on the loneliest road in the US, we found an oasis! This hotel has everything: themed rooms that are clean and quiet, more than ample food portions that are tasty and satisfying and entertainment that just seemed to belong in a dusty western cowboy town! We were most appreciative of the friendliness after traveling so far without a... More

Very clean hotel, comfortable. Steak was tough in café and service was slow and not very attentive to needs. Breakfast has always been good but again service wasn't the best. overall the hotel is a nice value for the price.
