“Warning”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

Property has not been maintained: exterior room doors badly damaged, window screens torn, parking lot filthy. Interior rooms on first glance look nice but: carpet dirty, toilet was not clean, rolls of toilet paper on top of toilet tank with toilet paper holder missing many live insects in and on bed -- I had to sleep in a chair. Large grass hopper jumped out fro the window sill.
Easily, the worse motel I have ever stayed at in 55 years of travel!

We booked this motel online through Expedia. We were looking for a cheap place to crash for one night ($50+tax) We pulled into the place at 11 pm. Front desk clerk said they didn't have our reservation and their motel was full. We pulled out our Expedia confirmation paper and he told us they didn't have any record of our reservation and they didn't have a computer (?!).

It was late, we were tired. He offered to find us a room at another property. He then took us to the Comfort Inn a block away. He offered us the room for $45 night due to renovations. We took it. Room was comfy. No problems.

I rated the Prospector Lodge low because they had no reservation for us. But the service was good in that they got us another room quick and for a cheaper rate.

But I would definitely not reserve a room here again. Don't do it!

We arrived after a LONG drive...and were scared by the really OLD signs advertising the place. Then, they said, NO reservation? Even AFTER we showed the confirmation through EXPEDIA...they said. No Reservation. No apologies...just an offer to stay at the neighbouring property run by the same (bored???) couple for $15.00 more. The owner/manager kept saying....the property is so much nicer? Who cares? We booked the cheapest accommodation in town only because it was too cold to camp. We even volunteered to not have breakfast to have the same $50.00 amount we had booked through Expedia honoured. No luck. We finally agreed to go next door and OH Brother, could the lady checking us in at Comfort Inn (apparently run by the same couple???) appear more bored. NO information. We had to ask when and where breakfast is??? What time is checkout??? etc.... Useless.
Because of the very bad service, we would not recommend either place. Stay elsewhere where people actually care if you are there.
We actually wonder if it is a scam since my partner said that, while I was looking up on Confirmation # on the computer, the manager said the original Prospector was booked for many weeks due to construction...then , why oh, why, would it be offered on Expedia.
The manager said. oh so helplessly, like she does not have a phone, we do not have the system yet ....pathetic.
