Booked a one night stay based on TA reviews as we drove the Great Basin Highway leaving Nevada. The owners are working hard to make this an inviting accommodation. The grounds are filled with old west & mining memorabilia . The common areas are very clean and again filled with funky art, statues etc. The casino ( gambling hall) was... More

Ended up here after an unfortunate car accident. This was recommended by the state trooper whose mom stays here when she visits. What a nice, well kept resort. We had everything we needed. Casino if you gamble (we don't). Front desk made us a margarita when we checked in at 3am after the accident. Great lounge area. Full breakfast offering... More

We took the lonely highway "50 or 55" through Nevada and the drive was beautiful. To my husband's surprise he found that a hotel he had stayed at before was now the Prospector Hotel and Casino. Nice rooms, loved the atmosphere with the old motorcycles and carvings.The restaurant was good, be the décor is a must see.Would definitely stop there... More

After a long day on the road, we stopped at The Prospector Casino for the night. The sign at the entrance said to find a site and check at the front desk, so we did. Our check in was fast and efficient and we are given vouchers for 2 Margaritas with our $15 stay. What more could weary travellers ask... More

Years ago my sister and I stayed at the Prospector when it was a Holiday Inn. It was lovely then but has an ambiance now that it is in private hands. Lots of memorabilia in the lobby and public areas. Unfortunately it is like most casinos in Nevada: it has lots of cigarette smoke in the air. One big drawback... More

We travel from southern Ca to Billings Mt a couple of times a year, we always try to stay at the Prospector. Very clean rooms, dog beds with treats in the room. Tile floors in case there are any accidents that you can clean-up. They have a great grass area for the animals to play in. Poop bags are provided.... More

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
