This was our second time staying here and it was even better than the first. We were on the top floor as requested. Very nice and clean and good beds and it seemed the rooms had been recently updated and were like new. Great air conditioner. Only minor issue was that the door does not go down to the floor... More

I was looking for a good place to stay in Ely for a night, not a "chain," and had my Daughter, Wife and Dog with me. The Prospector seemed to fit the bill. Since one of the things I came to Ely for was the Train Museum, I was happy to see that the Prospector Hotel also was a long... More

This hotel was very unique in the way it was decorated, the rooms were cute. The service was very good. The food was adequate for the price. It was the best place in town. We arrived at approximately 2:00 pm and got our rooms immediately.

Our room was very nice, reasonably priced. The casino was clean but very strong smell of smoke. The restaurant was quaint but did not enjoy the food, but I did a review on that. We would probably stay there again. Just eat somewhere else.

Stopped in with no reservation on our way to Sturgis. 5 men that had ridden 600 miles were tired hungry looking for place to rest for the night. They were booked. We pled our case to the very nice lady at the front desk. She called the owner who is motorcycle friendly and explained our situation. All the other decent... More

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
