Room was clean water was hot, good shower. For me the bed was just right. Staff was very friendly, had a nice talk with the ladies that were working they told us some things to do there. Always a pot of hot coffee by the check in area. Can't beat the price and service.

Has coffee pot, fridge, micro and hair dryer. Beds are old and broken down just the way I like them! Nothing worse than those hotel beds so popular these days that are like slabs of granite. Give me an old broken down one any day. Good TV, centrally located down town. 63 bucks for 1 on a Tuesday. I was...

We were located across the street from the casino which was fine. The lobby with the coffee was also across the street. The room was ok. I was having a problem with the hot water and was told to leave it running for 10 minutes. I was also offered a new room. I went with the 10 minutes and it...

Very nice motel on Highway 50. We stopped there overnight en route from California to Utah. The motel is bit old (though it is climatic because of that), but very well managed. Our room was very clean and spacious, The personnel was very helpful and professional. The city of Ely in which the motel is located is also a very...

I loved this place. Every single member of the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was large and well appointed. And the price was right. I'd definitely stay here again. Here are some more words to fill the TripAdvisor minimum.

Very average, very acceptable. We had burgers and fried things next to them. Limited table service, the type of place where you order at the counter and they bring you your food. Perfectly fine but nothing to write home about.

Stayed one night 3/16/17. They put us in a room across the street from the main hotel which was fine because we could back right up to the room. Maybe we were put there because we are non smokers and have no pets. In the hotel proper there is a casino and from my observation at least every other person...

Overall not a bad hotel for the Ely area, about average compared to the Hotel Nevada. Only advantage was they had rooms with two beds. Only grip is we booked two rooms and asked in the reservation requests and comments for the second one to be pet friendly. When we checked in they did not see our request and we...

The road keeps taking us through Ely and this place is genuinely comfortable. If you have AAA or AARP, a room with tax comes in at $59. Ely is cold but these rooms are toasty. The mattresses are much nicer than the other place in town I reviewed, you will not regret paying $9 more for the major jump in...

Decent night's sleep, clean room. Very smoky lobby, but Room was fresh enough. Breakfast was a bit weak for someone avoiding gluten but a good value for the price paid. Would stop in again on our next trip south.
