There are not a lot of choices for places to stay in Ely. Having said that, The Prospector is a very nice place to stay. Clean, very quiet and affordable. Even though the main hall of rooms is connected directly to the lobby and area of electronic gambling machines, it is quiet. The little restaurant is ok, not great but...

The minute my husband and I walked into the lobby of The Prospector I felt welcomed. We were greeted by Tony Curtis. I had no idea he was working in a hotel in Ely! lol The music and the décor gave the area character, and the amazing smells coming from the dining room made our dinner choice easy. If that...

I chose this place because of the number of cars in the parking lot. As I entered it was apparent that the people inside were having a great time! The laughter and music set the mood. Tony Curtis was the desk clerk that night and I laughed telling him that I was of the generation that would remember his name....

There is a Mexican restaurant off the lobby which has reasonable prices. The food was fine. We ate dinner and breakfast...

I'll start by saying we love staying at the Prospector. It's a great little motel and they are extremely accommodating if you're traveling with pets. We have stayed a number of times and have never had a bad experience, until now. We are traveling through for a family emergency, and checked in tonight. We were dismayed to learn that unless...

Stayed at the Prospector Hotel for a few days as we visited Ely. We had our dogs with us and were hugely surprised at the special rooms they had for travelers with pets. Treats, doggie bags, no-carpet floors, and a doggie bed . . . with decor designed around pet owners. This was great! Parking with direct access to the...

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!
