"Rooms are basic but very good: clean, comfy bed, decent size, DirecTV, etc. Andy is extremely helpful, and friendly but not intrusive. Silverton is a great town to visit. Have been several times and always stay at the Prospector. Highly recommend" - Trip Advisor - Julian J. - 2017


"Not your luxury hotel but just what we wanted!! A very clean room, super friendly owner, Andy. He is there to help with whatever you need. Stayed last year also. If we come back that way , we will stay again" - Trip Advisor 2016 - Shelly R. 

"Whenever I need time away from the fast-paced, high speed world I live in, I race up to Silverton to relax at the Prospector. Do yourselves a favor and take the checkered flag at the Prospector. As for as hospitality is concerned, Andy is the points leader year after year!" - Trip Advisor 2015 - Geof G.
