The guy at the front desk could certainly be a little more friendly-not rude but just not the smiling warm greeting you come to expect when traveling. The rooms were clean and spacious and the A.C. worked good. No breakfast of any kind in the morning so figure on driving somewhere else to eat. The office was supposed to be... More

Some people who run motels, should not be in the hospitality industry. We were hard pressed to get three words out of the desk clerk. A lot of grunting and one word sentences. Overall this place if at the lower end of the price range and as far as that goes not bad for the price. A/C worked fine, water... More

I would guess you pretty much get the same options at all the hotels. The bed was very comfortable; pillows (2) not so much, but that's ok because I always bring my own rather than depend on what's available. I appreciate that there was a microwave, refrigerator and table with chairs. It would probably be worth it to the owner... More

Our family of 3 stayed for 1 night. When we first drove up I was hesitant about staying. Mainly due to their competitor down the street looked really busy and in comparison Prospector Inn parking area was completely empty. When I checked in nobody was there. There's a note telling you to push a yellow button for assistance. Which took... More

Our visit was a disaster from the reservation process through trying to check in and finally trying to get a refund. The reservation clerk spoke very poor English and wasn't very professional. Upon arrival on a 90 degree day, the lobby was not air-conditioned. That made it very difficult to wait the full fifteen minutes it took for someone to... More

Despite slightly dated rooms, this hotel has modern amenities travelers expect: in-room coffee, fridge, microwave, lots of towels, spacious rooms, good wi-fi, breakfast included for very reasonable prices. Our room is quieter than last night's room in a major chain hotel. A great bargain in a small but cute town. Friendly office personnel.

An old building (as are most buildings in this western themed town) but the room was in good shape, clean and incredibly spacious. I mean huge. Friendly staff. Quiet. I slept like a baby. I have stayed here before and would stay again.

Stayed the night there to attend a music event at the brew pub. The room smelled old, and there was some peeling paint on the ceiling. The smoke alarm needed a new battery as it was chirping away. They quickly replaced the battery and all was quiet again. Not a bad place if you just need a place to sleep... More

This motel was built as a top-end motel, with beautiful log exterior and wonderful wood architectural features throughout. Republic seems to be dying out, and as a consequence the Prospector is fading a bit in its charm. Our room was generous and spacious, but the carpeting could use a replacement, and updates are needed. The jacuzzi is vintage 1970s, and... More
