My wife, dog, and I arrived here after driving the Lonliest Road. We absolutely loved this place. The Western art lining the hallways is like walking through a fine Western art gallery. Room came equipped with a very large screen tv, a microwave, a fridge, and a safe. At check-in we got two complimentary coupons for Margaritas. There is a... More

On north side of Ely, NV - heading out US Hwy 93. Well appointed rooms with updated furnishings. Friendly hotel staff. Check in next to casino - and it's an overwhelming masked smokey smell the greets you. Our room was fine - but common areas & casino plus on-site Mexican restaurant have the stale smokey rooms smells. No problem if... More

Room was nice, clean,refrigerator and maybe even a microwave. Mine was a Japanese styled theme I guess. Average Mexican food in Casino and a lively bar with a bunch of drunk Sacramento guys out away from the wives watching basketball. Would go again

After a lot of driving we were so happy that the Prospector was such a great place to stay. VERY dog friendly, with an entire wing of pet happy pictures and rooms, the hotel has a historical theme that is fun. Old wagons and antiques dot the nicely water outside lawn and pictures of all sorts adorn the halls (a... More

We had the ground-floor room next to the workout room; that was not a problem. We experienced friendly staff, clean and comfy room. But there was a problem: we were awakened in the middle of the night by the loud sound of running water that seemed to be coming from the room above. It just kept on running. I called... More

This hotel and casino is fun and full of interesting art and sport objects to enjoy. Although I found it to be a bit flashy it was still comfortable and enjoyable. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom, although a bit dated, functioned well. The restaurant has had a Mexican menu in the past but is adding traditional items,... More

I stayed with a friend at the Prospector for one night and, overall, it was a very positive experience. That started with check-in which went smoothly and the desk person was not only friendly but had a sense of humor which added a nice personal touch. We arrived by motorcycle and she told us where and how we could park... More
