The Goldfield Hotel is actually built over the main headframe (elevator shaft) down into an abandoned gold mine. The hotel has been through multiple attempts of renovation, but all hav failed so far, because of the expense. At one point (maybe still) it was owned by a college classmate. You can't go in (OSHA/EPA regulations) but it is still impressive from the outside. Goldfield itself is a real junk collection. I think the locals pride themselves on their bizarre-ness. There is nothing to eat, drink or buy here (always "closed"), but it is the county seat of Esmeralda County, so there are swarms of sheriff's deputies around all the time. NEVER drive faster than 25 mph through town.
