“Excellent Older Property to Stay at.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Checked into this hotel last week (Sunday night - April 21) and received prompt and courteous service. Though the facility is older than some and being a smaller Nevada Casino which allows smoking it wasn't unbearable. Included in check-in was a $3.00 slot machine voucher and two free margarita's in the lobby bar. The room itself was much better than expected for the price paid (@$75.00 Cdn taxes in). Non-smoking room was a good size, spotless, up to date with a very comfortable bed, fridge and microwave. Though breakfast was not included we did have supper at the hotel restaurant and enjoyed an all-you-can-eat pot roast supper for under $12.00 each. The meal was excellent, plentiful and inexpensive. They offer different nightly specials. Of the hotels to stay at the Prospector is not the newest though prpobably the best. We had stayed at the Ramada in 2010 and it was pricier though included breakfast.

This property is a good find, with reasonable prices, nice rooms, amenities and a surprisingly good and very inexpensive restaurant.Indoor pool too. I just stayed there on April 9th and was very satisfied, and would recommend the Prospector as a fine place to stay on a trip north of Las Vegas.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter unless you want to be further from the casino, which is quiet anyway. Yourmonl...

We picked this hotel online because it was dog friendly. We were very pleased with everything. The room had two doggy beds and several dog treats as well as doggy bags. the decor was modern and the room was clean and quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Nice toiletries and fluffy towels. Very helpful desk attendant. did not eat in Hotel cafe the prices seemed a little high. The casino was clean and updated. A dog was backing in one of the rooms and the desk attendant was right on it and located the owner We will definitely stay here again.

We chose this hotel because we were traveling with our dog and it is pet friendly. The room was very clean and updated, They had doggie treats layed out for the dog and a dog bed and a dog pillow in the room and made us feel like our furry family member was very welcome. The young man at the front desk was very nice, and gave us 2 free margarita coupons and a free spin on the wheel fo fortune machine. The casino is very small with only slot machines, but provided a little entertainment after dinner. The food was good and the beds were comfy. There is an indoor pool and a small gym if gambling is not your thing. We will stay here again next time we pass this way.

A comfortable and warm atmosphere with exceptionally well appointed rooms search with its own theme. The restaurant is excellent and the front desk service is the best. I travel out of my way to stay at the Prospector.

Traveled from Bonneville UT south and stayed at RV park at hotel. $15.00 a nite with 2 free drink coupons! Ate dinner at restaurant pleasantly surprised with quality and presentation of meals. Casino winnings paid for dinner. Definitely worth the stop.

This hotel has been remodeled and is very nice. Very friendly check in clerk and willing to give you good suggestions on different places to eat in town. Bar was friendly and interesting to visit.
Free margarita and spin on the casino wheel.
