“Past glories”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

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.

“If you like semi-ghost towns and abandoned buildings.........”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

you will LOVE Goldfield, and particularly this old empty hotel. You can look through the windows and see the lobby. I was fortunate enough to find a postcard in a nearby convenience type store of the lobby.

“Great Old Historic Hotel”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We travel the west looking at the old historic mining and ghost towns. Goldfield is a great stop and a visit to the historic goldfield Hotel well worth the time. While it is still not open to the public (the interior) it gives the visitor a peek into what this town was like in it's hayday!

“nice deserted hotel”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

the hotel had the haunted feel that makes you want to go inside and explore......to bad you cant go inside. very creepy i liked it. the little town is swarming with police, make sure you go the speed limit, they are waiting to catch tourists that do not pay attention.
