The room was dated, had pealing plaster in the bathroom as well as mildew on the shower curtain. There was rot on the baseboards in the bathroom as well. No maid service either. Definitely not worth the money. I would rather stay in salt lake and drive for the price.

We went just as a couple for a quick 4 day ski get away. We tried to not spend a fortune, which is not easy to do in Park City in February! The Prospector had mixed reviews so we were a bit skeptical but our experience was fine. The check-in process was a breeze, even at midnight. The person at... More

I had a conference near the Prospector Square and the Marriot was booked. Given that this was peak season in Park City, The Prospector Lodge was quite reasonable. Criteria that matter most to me--comfort of beds, cleanliness, close proximity to bus line--were met. However, this is very bare bones. There was no bathtub, and the shower stall was tiny. There...

I would challenge anyone to find a more centrally located hotel in Park City. I made it to all 3 resorts over a 5 day trip. I rode my bike to PC mountain resort and also deer valley! The free bus took me to canyons, and it runs very frequently. I took the bus to Main Street as well, but... More

I've stayed at The Prospector before in winter, but this was my first summer stay. This place is a gem! Everything about our room was charming. We booked through the HomeAway website, listing number 346404. The owners have more than 1 condo so we are always able to find a room. The room was newly updated, with granite, a floor... More

I loved staying here so much! The staff was amazing, they treated my friend and I so great and were extremely helpful. The location is also great and the rooms are really cool! I thought the staff was very efficient and answered all of our questions. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

If your not into hotels like the Holiday Inn or something of that class than the Prospector is perfect for you for it is a step down. They have multi type rooms such as lofts, hotel rooms, and condos all of which are very basic. It is very centrally located to downtown Park City and to a few good restaurants... More

We stayed here for our 1 year anniversary. I would highly recommend spending the extra cash for a better hotel. The room only had one full bed. I assumed at the time of booking that the hotel standard was queen. There was hair left in the shower stall. The shower was also so small. The walls are paper thin. Our... More

This is a "condo" hotel, meaning all the units are owned by pretty much absentee owners. And it shows. While they've just refurbished the lobby, the room we were in was at least 40 years old. The in-room heater made enough noise as a jet engine and had to be "restarted" by maintenance. Maid service was spotty to say the... More

Main area being upgraded. This will be nice when it is done. In Jan 2014 it was incomplete. Pleasant surprise with the room. Nicely painted and furnished. Everything worked and was neat and clean. On the small side but we did not spend much time in the room. Good value for a ski weekend.
