We stay in Ely when we go to Las Vegas. I have stayed at The Prospector before and always have had a good time. They are always updating and making their Hotel better. The rooms are very clean and have themes of the area. Sometime I would like to spend some time in Ely and just get to know the... More

We weren’t quite sure what to expect from this hotel but we were amazed how big the room was an how modern all the fixtures and fittings were. We never expected anything so plush for such a reasonable price. At first we were a bit worried our room might be noisy because we were very close to the casino but... More

Nice little funky place in the middle of nowhere. We are staying at the full hook-up RV Park adjacent to the Hotel for only $22.20 per night. Nothing special, but very comfortable and I am told they almost always have space available. A night at the RV Park (and the hotel, too, I assume) comes with two free Margarita's in... More

I read the reviews and thought it couldn't possibly be an acceptable hotel in Ely! I was wrong! We had to stay in a pet friendly room because it was the only room left. Not only was it fine, it was super cute. I wish I had my pooch to use the dog bed and utilize the treats! Everything was... More

This was a very nice place. The room was spacious and clean, with nice amenities, like a big screen TV, casino on site and a Mexican Restaurant made this a great stopping point on a road trip. The shower was one of those waterfall ones, that supplied plenty of water, at a good temp. The only downside was the length... More

This place was amazing! Beds were comfortable, showers were nice, and the restaurant had delicious food! It's a Mexican restaurant but they also have American food, and their cheeseburger was phenomenal! They also gave us two complimenyary margaritas - can never go wrong there! We feel lucky finding this place!

So what did I expect? I was thinking a hotel that was a little dated, you know poor carpeting, bathroom fixtures that were ancient! What a pleasant surprise, the hotel was really pretty nice. Our room was freshly renovated, colorful and comfortable. I gave the hotel 4 stars for two reasons - the towels in the room have not been... More

Couldn't have been more pleased. The room was excellent and the pet room was absolutely pet friendly and extremely clean and inviting. Having just come from 4 days in the Sonoma area and wine tasting this hotel was better than anything we stayed at in the highly touted wine country and half the price. Absolutely on my list to return... More

We choose this motel based on the most recent reviews and they were spot on and helpful. Big, clean, comfortable room with nice amenities including a make-up mirror. Friendly staff. Good restaurant in the hotel. We had Mexican food for dinner and returned for breakfast. Western and antique decor. Only negative was having to pass through the somewhat smoky casino... More

If you are going through Nevada on the Great Basin Highway (Route 93) you will pass through Ely. If you decide to stop in Ely, then look at the Prospector Hotel. Rooms are clean and well furnished including a large TV, refrigerator, micro wave and coffee maker. Friendly front desk staff. Can't say much for the restaurant as the menu... More
