Prospector is the bare minimalist in accommodations in Silverton in summer and over priced for what you get. We won't be back. Including the wifi which has very limited bandwidth. I tried joining a zoom call and constantly got dropped. Eventually gave up. It's barely good enough to check your email and that's it. The bath towels are thin, rough and small, barely good enough to dry you off. We didn't get any soap. Fortunately we had our own. On the plus side it was a good sized room and had a good size refrigerator. The beds were ok but not great. They were a bit unevenly worn.
If you don’t want to get any sleep at night, then this is the place for you. The mattresses were the absolute worst we have ever slept on! There are only 2 lamps with 25 watt bulbs in the room, so not enough light to read. The TV is a “smart” TV, but there are no directions on how to use it, so we sat in silence in the room. The bath tub is a slippery death trap. The bathroom is barely large enough to turn around in. There is no air conditioning, you’re told to open the window. All this for only $139/night! What a rip off!
Stayed a night. Old motel that is very worn. It had terrible beds. No AC. Rooms are dark and old. Door handles didn’t work half the time, from the inside or outside. Locks were difficult to lock. This is definitely a motel of last resort…. Look for a better option.
My husband and I had planned on staying in another town but accommodations were full. I called the Prospector and a nice female employee said they had a room available. She was very helpful and reserved the room for me over the phone. I was a little nervous because I hadn’t seen any reviews but we were desperate. Upon arrival, I found our key at the office. There were several guys hanging outside but found that they were just guest who had come in from riding ATV’s earlier. The room was #12. Large but dated and basic but for the price and last minute, it was fine. We found it all to be clean and everything was in working order. It was also quiet through the night. I would stay there again.
Hotel in disrepair, owners don't care. Shower is standing water, won't drain, no air circulation, large crack under the door, BUGS. Owners could of cared less that the motel was in complete disrepair.
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.
