The hotel Elwell was located at 200 S. 1st St. at Carson behind the Pioneer Club.
In 1965 the pioneer club purchased the hotel Elwell and renamed it the pioneer club hotel. The hotel was sold and became the Golden Hotel.
The Golden Nugget bought the Golden Hotel in 1984 and built a parking garage on the site.
