We delivered an aluminum statue of a COW and stayed the night. People were super welcoming and friendly, and the room we had was awesome. First rate all the way! Amenities were all you need: pool and nice jacuzzi, weight room, slot machines if you're so inclined. We ate at their new Mexican restaurant; I had the best shrimp I've... More

Our room was truly equipped with our pups in mind. Our room is right by the exit for easy outs. Tile floors, dog beds, dog biscuits, etc. We have stayed here before, but our room this time was my favorite. Picture frames and decor of old barn wood, nicely crafted, with old mining photos. Tables and headboard of barrels and... More

Great facilities and a superb Mexican Restaurant. We always travel with our dogs and they were treated like royalty. They have a motorcycle display featruring antique Harleys and Indians. We even received free maragaritas at check-in. We will definitely be back.

The rooms were very clean. The beds not so comfortable,but was nicer than I thought it would be. The Hotel staff was friendly and help full. The Resteraunt was over priced and the staff was rude and you had to find them if you needed coffee or refills. All in All a good time just nit the resteraunt

Both my wife and I were extremely impressed with this hotel. Clean, friendly and comfortable. There is a restaurant and lounge at the property that was very convenient and a nice quaint casino as well. We will definitely be back.

We have stayed in Ely many times on our way to visit family and this was our first time at the prospector. What a dog friendly hotel! Dog bones in the rooms, poop bags provided, stone tile floors, dog beds provided. We will be back! Way to go Prospector!

We recently spent two nights at the Prospector for a family wedding. There were many wedding guests staying there and the desk staff was totally prepared for our arrivals. Our room was furnished in a casino style but others we saw had totally different motifs. The breakfasts were very good as was the wedding dinner. The staff was courteous and... More

Driving from Moab to Yosemite we just needed a place stay. This ended up more than that! Friendly staff, great food (and huge servings!), very comfortable rooms and everything was neat and tidy. The kids very much enjoyed the indoor heated pool after a day of driving whilst I relaxed in the spa. Highly recommended!

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
