If traveling through Ely, NV I would stay here again... + comfortable beds and updated rooms + on-site food and entertainment (if interested) + plenty of parking + historic artifacts throughout the hotel - stale tobacco smell upon entry but not in rooms - slow check in but it was late so perhaps a "fill in" person

The RV portion of the Prospector is "okay" for spending the night while passing through. Not very many sites, however they do have 30 and 50 amp service, water and sewer. No restrooms except in the Hotel/Casino and no showers available. At 22 bucks a night, it's fairly cheap. With that, you get access to the indoor pool and hot... More

We stay at the Prospector every time we travel through. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Now they have huge big screen tv's which are nice with lots of viewing choices. The restaurant has changed to a total Mexican menu, and the food was not good. Restaurant used to be very good, too bad they changed. Breakfast was ok ...... More

I stayed at the Prospector while traveling to California from Idaho. I have to say, this place might have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. I think the whole hotel was recently remolded as well. Food was good at the onsite restaurant and had a night cap at the lounge before bed. Would definitely recommend this place!

Clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly and we received great service. There is even an indoor pool that our little onesenjoyed. We will be back the next time we travel that way. Definitely exceeds all expectations!

The Prospector is a great choice in Ely and probably the best stay in town. The rooms are big and recently remodeled with nice modern decor. The beds are comfortable. The Prospector is a top 3 star hotel experience. A couple tips: Book direct rather than through aggregator so you can get the AAA or other discounts Margarita's in the... More

We were checked in by a very nice woman and given coupons for 2 free margaritas and $3.00 of game play, which was nice, BUT when we went to our room with our dog, we were amazed to see: tile floors, dog bed, super cute pics and paintings of dogs, dog treats and poop bags. I have included pics because... More

By far the nicest hotel in the area! I travel through Ely sereval times a year for work and have stayed at all the major hotels and none compare to this place. Even a free margarita and megabucks pull with check-in. Simply impressed,,

Ok....don't let this place fool you from the outside. The surprise is inside. Crazy collection of mining paraphenalia,, motorcycles, great cowboy art and on and on. Quite Delightful actually. Slots!! Free drinks & a waitress! Room was very comfortable and clean. Caution: shower quite dark. That is the only thing to complain about. Heard the restaurant was good but didn't... More

Both my husband and I travel often and this is one of the nicer properties we have stayed at. Staff was friendly, everything was clean and the hotel was recently remodeled. The onsite restaurant and lounge was convenient and reasonable. We will definitely be back here if we're in the area!
