Traveling with a giant Labradoodle can be challenging. The Prospector made our Sandy dog feel like she was at home. Big fluffly bed just for her, lots of dog treats, and plenty of room for exercise. We LOVED our stay. Thanks!

We stopped here on 11/25/2016. We had stayed here a couple of years ago and were not happy but decided to give them another try.

We stopped over at Prospector as part of a 2 day drive. The staff is friendly. The rooms are big and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Good wi-fi. One restaurant on the property. We had breakfast there and it was quite good. Only complaint: We ended up with luke warm water both in the night and in the morning....

This hotel has more character than any place I've stayed in a long time - in a good way! The decor is interesting - from the giant Great Danes in the lobby to the western art lining the hallways. We also loved that we could come back to the hotel after a long day in the elements and not have...

This hotel is definitely a "we will return" place for us. The atmosphere is fun and funky, with impressive artifacts that the owners have collected over the years. The rooms are large, comfortable and pet friendly (although there is definitely no pet odor). There is a restaurant located on site that specializes in Mexican food, but offers other types as...

I thought it was a good place to stay with it's fun western atmosphere. They have gone over the top to have old western artifacts on display. Look how cool the rug is down the hall. It does need some updates. For instance in the restaurant, the wood flooring was like falling apart. Over all good.

The last time we were in this area, we stayed at Baker. That was a total disaster, so we decided to try Ely on this visit. The Prospector Hotel worked out very well. The decor was quite "casino" with dark colored furniture. We have seen similar decor in Reno. However, it appeared to be recently renovated and clean. All the...
