Room 6 was a good basic room for 4 days base in a fun town. Across the street are fun vehicles for rent! Good food within walking distance and beautiful views all over town. This is where the wild west was created!!

We stayed two nights. Room was good size and very clean. This motel doesn't look like much from the outside but carpet looks new and we had no complaints. Great rate. Easy walk to everything in Silverton. If there was anything at all negative, it was that check in was a block away at their sister property. Triangle Motel. I suggest they inform you of that at reservation so you don't have to backtrack. After riding a motorcycle all day, I was just ready to check in. Also, request a blow dryer at check in, ladies. All in all, a great stay.

We only planned on staying in Silverton one night but we ended up staying three nights at this motel. We felt very comfortable here. The room was clean and very quiet. The owner was very friendly and helpful, made you feel at home. Don't expect this to be a fancy place, it's a basic room but it all added to the charm and fun of staying in Silverton. Four wheelers and side by sides are going up and down the streets!

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very quiet area, walking distance to all the shops in town. Wonderful people at the hotel and around town. Great sunsets on the monument above the hotel.

(See YouTube video by same name). Andy and the Prospector Motel were the perfect hosts for my son, a buddy and me as we spent a week in the mountains above Silverton. Andy could not have been more accommodating, and the other guests were equally friendly. The rooms are basic with no frills, however everything we needed was provided. The price was an excellent value, with access to the town always a very short walk.
