We usually stop in Ely on our way south and usually stay here as it is comfortable, clean and reasonably priced. For the first time we noted the room was showing some age. The toilet was loud and would run for a long time while the tank filled and there was a continuous drip

Stay here on a trip from St George Utah to Reno. Hotel was nice and restaurant was above what you would expect to find in a casino/hotel. We had a pet room and they were set up to treat our dog just like another member of the the family. However, there are a limited number of

We've enjoyed staying at the Prospector... glad to support a fine locally-owned business. Lots of interesting collections to see and personal touches. Which is interesting, because they were all CLEAN. The restaurant food was generous & delicious.

Dear Betty G., While I am not sure what specifically you are searching for in regards to guest policies and fees I can share this bit of information direct from this hotel's website: "We absolutely love pets and offer special pet-friendly rooms ($10 per night, per pet) where the pet and master will feel right at home." Beyond that, the website is fairly basic and void of specifics. However, if you venture to any of the main hotel reservation sites including TripAdvisor you will find a Policies section which should answer your questions. Other than that I would suggest calling the hotel directly and asking them your specific question or concern. Having stayed at this hotel, I can share with you that this facility is the best in the area and their staff is very friendly. Hope this helps? Safe journey to Nevada! Joe

The hotel is located in town. We have a restaurant onsite and there are probably 8 others within a 5 min drive. Shopping is limited in the town of Ely. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Safe Travels!

I believe there are rooms that allow smoking. I am asked smoking of non-smoking and I always go for non-smoking. To be sure, ask for what you want. Hope that helps.
