If you are traveling with a dog, you need to check this place out. We had a luxury dog room - for under $100 a night. It had treats, bags, dog bed and lots of adorable pictures in the room and throughout the hallway. It had a grassy area in the back along with doggie bags. And it was quiet... More

I stopped by because of the Trip Advisor reviews. I travel quite a bit and this place was awesome. From the lady who answered the phone (Christina?) to the desk agent to the bartenders. All top notch. The rooms were very clean and beds super comfortable. I loved the rubber ducky in the bathtub as well as the other amenities... More

I really like the property and rooms. They were modern and very comfortable. This terrible review is about our experience at check in. I was born in America.

Twilight zone experience. Five hours on highway 50 with only two cars the entire way. By the time we pulled in Ely, I was ready to kiss the ground. After a drive like that, you want a nice room with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. We must have looked like refugees to the hotel clerk. She laughed about our... More

We were skeptical staying at a hotel/casino. This place was absolutely fabulous!. The room was large, well maintained and decorated. The best nights sleep. The bed was as comfortable as our own.

We had a friendly welcome and the free margaritas in the bar and popcorn in the foyer were very pleasant and genuine gestures. Rooms are a decent size, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced. The foyer is all rather faded western/rustic, but it does convey some of the history of the area. We kept away from the casino and its reported... More

Stayed one evening while visiting Great Basin Nat'l Park. Ely is 68 miles from the park but unless you camp, its the nearest place to book a room. Prospector Hotel was very clean, quiet and well appointed. Check in and out were a breeze. Restaurant in hotel was good too.

Though some folks don't like staying at casino hotels, this is certainly an interesting and comfortable choice in Ely. Rates are very fair, comfortable beds, convenient location and good restaurant just down the hall. Specifiy a room as far away from casino as possible if you are a non-smoker. The casino allows smoking, and there is no door to close... More
