We have stayed at Prospector on 3 trips. It is clean and very reasonable. They have a small casino and restaurant so you can park the car for the night. Restaurant is God and reasonable. Hotel is clean and service is good. Definitely a good value.

Rolled into Ely near sundown and the Prospector looked like the best, well, prospect. The lobby was fun corny, stuffed with cowboy and Harley/Indian memorabilia. Casino had that vaguely nicotine-stale smell; but it didn't carry into the hotel ( stiff fine for smoking in their rooms, doncha know). Corridor lined with cow skulls and hides, branding irons, feathers - all... More

Booked this place because of the reviews on Trip Advisory, but wouldn't stay again. They did give me a different room which I appreciated, but the smell of smoke from the casino is all thru the hallway. Staff was very friendly, room large and clean.

We stayed here on our last trip to Arizona from Idaho--what a pleasant surprise. The room was big, shower was great, there is a restaurant on site and it is right on our route. We will be repeat customers I'm sure.

We were looking for an RV spot in Ely and happened to see that the casino had RV spots, so we turned around and stayed. The sites are pretty level and the price was $20.00 plus tax. There are no shower or bathroom facilities at the RV park. RV customers are allowed to use their pool, they have free wifi... More

What a delightful surprise this hotel was. Very cute and interesting decorations fitting in the the Western theme of the hotel. The lobby is filled with really interesting things like lion statues, giant reclining dogs, a huge bronze eagle and a motorcycle. Decorations are also outside to the delight of children staying here.
