“Best place in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

We wanted lodging within walking distance of the railroad museum & this hotel worked great.

Staff was friendly & helpful. Rooms are nice sized, with frig & microwave. Lots of towels & an excellent shower.

There's a bar & a cafe. Staff again friendly & helpful. Portions are large.

Not much to the town, but if I was in the area, I would stay here again.

We were passing through Ely and needed a place to stay. We also had our 2 dogs! The Prospector was a nice hotel and a good value. It was clean and very pet friendly!!!! Also the staff at the front desk were very hospitable.

We found this place on trip advisor and once again we were very happy. The rooms are large and the air conditioning is freezing cold which is a good things in the desert. We even did our laundry for the week. They had Tommy Bahama shampoo and soap and a casino, what more could you ask for?

If you are passing through Ely, Nevada it is a great spot to either spend a night while passing through or spend a few days and check out the local sites. They have rooms that are for pets and then they have rooms that are not for pets, if you have allergies. We got a room that allowed dogs and it had tile floor which made you feel like the room was cleaner considering everyone's dog isn't always well mannered. There is a restaurant on site and we ate breakfast there all four mornings. It is a great non-chain hotel with a small casino.

Room Tip: If you have an animal ask for a pet friendly room. If you don't have a pet you might want to as...

we were travelling down from jackpot nevada via the bonneville salt flats to Las Vegas and our flight home and stayed for one night to break the trip. clean hotel, well appointed, indoor pool, and the most interesting themes, antiques and curios i have ever seen in a small hotel. staff are lovely, food is good and the beds are very comfortable. owner seems to have a thing about maralyn monroe (then again - don't most of us men!). she appears pretty much everywhere not that i am complaining!

the town has enough to keep you busy for at least three days so we intend to book longer next time we come.

This hotel is pet friendly to the point of having separate rooms that are set up for people traveling with pets, there are pet treats waiting when you come into the room and a dog bed as well as pet pictures on the walls. What a great place
