Landmark Tourist Spot
The Goldfield Hotel is a historic four-story building located at the southeast corner of Crook Avenue and Columbia Avenue in Goldfield, Esmeralda County, Nevada. Designed in the Classical Revival style of architecture by Reno architects Morrill J. Curtis and George E. Holesworth of the firm of Curtis and Morrill, it was built between 1907 and 1908 on the site of two earlier hotels of the same name which had burnt down. Built in a U-shape in order to ensure outside windows for each guest room, the building has its west or main facade extending 180 feet along Columbia Street with the north wing fronting 100 feet on Crook Avenue and the south wing fronting 100 feet along an alleyway. The ground floor exterior facades were built of gray granite stones from Rocklin, California while the interior first floor facade and all upper story facades were built of redbrick. The top floor exterior facades were crowned with a white cornice. On March 4, 1981, it was added to the Nevada State Register of Historic Places. It is a contributing property in the Goldfield Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 14, 1982.HistoryBuilt at a cost of between $300,000 and $400,000, it was reported to be the most spectacular hotel in Nevada at the time of its completion in 1908. Champagne is said to have flowed down the front steps in the opening ceremony. Its 150 rooms were outfitted with pile carpets, many with private baths, and the lobby was trimmed in mahogany, with black leather upholstery and gilded columns. It also featured an elevator and crystal chandeliers.

  • Imagine - they face the for Windows cunning with boards and doors of the once-proud hotel? You try to look into what it during high season could be going on? With some imagination you see themselves as bystander in a bygone time, and if you listen well, you hear playing the honky-tonk tonk piano and the bartender opens the Whiskey bottle with a "PLoP"! That happened to us, as we stood in front of the Goldfield hotel. It seems that the ghosts of the past there took resident.

  • Extreme haunted place.. Awesome historical land mark.. Live old pla es like these it history we had back in the days.. Love going to see it every chance I get.
  • Been here multiple times in my lifetime. The entire town has a very 1800s feel to it the hotel is awesome wish somebody would open it up as a hotel and Casino the town needs it for people coming through all the time. If you like creepy things take a drive to the Goldfield Cemetery about 3 miles north on 95. very old headstones and full of ghosts. Just make sure you stop when going through town.
  • Hotel is closed. Hopefully in the next year or two it reopens. Nice photo opportunity.
  • It's and old bulding and you can't go inside, but, if you drive at nigh you can feel a creepy sensation, especially if you know ghost adventures you know that have found good ghost evidence. Not only in the hotel if not in almost all the places of this town
  • Spooky and creepy
