Great stay. This motel is located in the perfect spot to see all Ely has to offer. It was clean and the host was great! He was very helpful and informative. We enjoyed this motel and would definitely stay again.

My son and I needed a place 1/2 way between Grand Portage and Voyageurs NP so stayed in Ely. There weren’t many options in town available.

The room was clean and the staff all very nice.
I couldn’t find a blow dryer in the room and there were only 2 pillows. The air conditioner was very loud and the room tiny. I also wished that they had creamer instead of the powdered stuff for coffee in the office.
So overall a thumbs up but not the type of hotel we are used to staying in.

We booked 2 rooms for 2 days before our canoe trip and 1 day afterward. Very nice and friendly service at the desk. It’s located on the Main Street and most everything is within easy walking distance. And yes I will be staying there again when I visit Ely.

Room Tip: Large trucks don’t fit well in their parking lot so choose a end room

Prices good. room was clean but very small with one queen bed not much moving space, parking lot very small for modern cars. Very friendly operators, very helpful and informative. Air conditioner noisy but effective. Would stay again.

We've stayed several times - will do so again. Clean, reasonable & convenient. Nice people. Our only complaint - the air conditioners are so NOISY it is like having a rooftop unit runni9ng full-blast in your room, even on the lowest setting. Had this experience in both of our rooms

Room Tip: Visit when you don't need to run the A/C
