Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Room was very clean, nicely furnished. The only drawback was that although it is a smoke-free hotel. The smoke from the casino filters down into the hotel room area. We stayed on the bottom floor, the smoke hits you in the face when you open the room door. A better ventilation system is badly needed.

This is a pet friendly hotel and is very well done and clean. Check in was easy and clerk was super nice. This is a casino with only slot machines so pick a room away from the casino to avoid noise. Avoid the restaurant at the hotel.

This very unassuming hotel and casino had us very surprised! For the price, the beds and rooms were comfy and clean. Free drinks on check in! Lots of weird stuff but a good weird. The casino was small but had some good machines.

We found the Prospector Hotel in Ely when passing through on a road trip. When I saw the AAA rating and the Trip Advisor award I knew we'd found a good place. Whoever manages this place is doing a good job and paying attention to the little details. The rooms are very clean, luxuriously large and the beds super comfortable....

We stayed here one night on our way to Vegas. It was OK. The room was clean and the bed just right. The hotel is connected to a small casino. The staff were just great. There are a lot of things to see in the lobby, spend some time.

We stopped here after bad weather forced us off the road early. The hotel is nothing special, but it somehow exceeds expectations and delivers good value. The exterior and lobby are packed with collectibles which amused my son while I checked in with a friendly and helpful staff. They were cool about our needing a dog friendly room despite their...
