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

Large clean rooms. Big flat screen TV. Very strong, free wifi, A good restaurant with reasonable prices. And best yet....Very affordable. I was surprised at the bang for the buck. They could easily be charging more and likely get no complaints. Other reviews on this website detail the amenities including the large tub w/rubber duck. Really too many things right... More

We stopped for a room, a shower, do some laundry, & nice meals. Very pleasant room. A very large screen tv, a shock after camping without power for four nights. Even had toothbrush and toothpaste in the room along witb coffee and tea...Wolfgang Puck's brand. A rubber ducky in the bathroom with a full tub. We got a free Las... More

My husband and I were traveling back home to Oregon from Texas. The night before we were in Durango, Co. Being very tired I suggested that we stay the night in Ely. We have stayed in our RV many times before in Ely, this was the first time at a hotel. I looked at tripadvisor (of course) for places to... More

I don't "do" casinos so was reluctant to stay here, however the price was very reasonable and it worked out beautifully. The lobby and casino area were smoky so I was on alert, however the rooms are all non-smoking and the hallways and room didn't smell at all. There was a drink vouncher and we were able to bring them... More

Coming into Ely, there's lots of different hotels, motels, etc to choose from. I saw a billboard for Prospector Hotel and Casino and decided to check the place out. The price was very reasonable so I checked in. They're biker friendly and allowed me to park my bike at the entrance under the overhang. There's also a RV park as... More

Very good restaurant. Especially good salmon dinner. And we were able to get oatmeal for bkfast even though not on menu. Enjoyed the hot tub being open till 11. 2 suggestions -... More
