Stayed in the risqué room. Very clean, king size bed, and newly remodeled. It was called risque' because of old fashioned pictures of ladies partially clothed. Tastefully decorated with a cute pink mining hat above the sink. Everytime we stay there the staff goes out of there way to make us comfortable. Our t.v. wouldn't work and before I hung... More

After driving for hours, I did not know what I would find at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised that this was a great room. It was comfy and all the soaps were great smelling. The restaurant attached is great for breakfast and reasonably priced. I would definitely come back here. Loved the decor, too.

Five pillows per bed, very quiet, great air conditioning...I slept like a baby. Large television, fridge, microwave, safe, plenty of lights and outlets for charging. The indoor pool and jacuzzi is great! The Mexican restaurant in the hotel is pretty average and the wait time is sometimes unbearable. For dining, I suggest leaving the hotel for Rack's, Silver State Cafe,... More

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

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
