Stayed one evening while visiting Great Basin Nat'l Park. Ely is 68 miles from the park but unless you camp, its the nearest place to book a room. Prospector Hotel was very clean, quiet and well appointed. Check in and out were a breeze. Restaurant in hotel was good too.

Though some folks don't like staying at casino hotels, this is certainly an interesting and comfortable choice in Ely. Rates are very fair, comfortable beds, convenient location and good restaurant just down the hall. Specifiy a room as far away from casino as possible if you are a non-smoker. The casino allows smoking, and there is no door to close...

We got into Ely after 8pm and we were starving! The front desk clerk gave us each a bag of popcorn to eat while we were standing there! She also gave my kids 2 suckers each, and we also got 2 coupons for a free margarita at the onsite bar. She gave us an extra rubber ducky so the kids...

THIS PLACE WOULD BE GREAT ON ITS OWN BUT THE BEST FEATURE FOR US IS THE PET FRIENDLY PART. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT. Rooms that cater to your pet.

We feel like we've found a gem of a hotel in the middle of Nevada. We travel with dogs so we have stayed in lots of"pet friendly" hotels. This one puts them all to shame! The The room is beautiful, comfortable and comes with a comfy pet bed. The hall between rooms is covered with huge murals of pets. There...

Ely, NV was much less than we had hoped for after 4 days of camping at Great Basin National Park but Prospector Hotel and Casino was much more than we anticipated. Like a set location for a Quentin Tarantino movie, entering this hotel is like the old west meets crazy carnival meets with Egyptian pharaohs and they all decided to...

We have stayed at Prospector on 3 trips. It is clean and very reasonable. They have a small casino and restaurant so you can park the car for the night. Restaurant is God and reasonable. Hotel is clean and service is good. Definitely a good value.

Rolled into Ely near sundown and the Prospector looked like the best, well, prospect. The lobby was fun corny, stuffed with cowboy and Harley/Indian memorabilia. Casino had that vaguely nicotine-stale smell; but it didn't carry into the hotel ( stiff fine for smoking in their rooms, doncha know). Corridor lined with cow skulls and hides, branding irons, feathers - all...

Booked this place because of the reviews on Trip Advisory, but wouldn't stay again. They did give me a different room which I appreciated, but the smell of smoke from the casino is all thru the hallway. Staff was very friendly, room large and clean.

We stayed here on our last trip to Arizona from Idaho--what a pleasant surprise. The room was big, shower was great, there is a restaurant on site and it is right on our route. We will be repeat customers I'm sure.
