With this price, I should not have complained about too much. However, the water was either too cold or too hot in the shower room while the temperature outside was around zero....Also, the bathroom had strong smell><

I've stayed at this hotel a few times over the last decade and have always encountered clean rooms and friendly staff. The beds are comfortable and were a welcome reprieve after a week of camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Ask for a room away from the main road for a little quieter stay but the traffic noise... More

We came to Ely to visit the bear centre and needed a place to sleep. We stayed here for 2 nights so we had plenty of time to visit the bear and wolf centre. I loved the bathroom with the 60's style tiles. The place was clean just what we needed.

I would say that this place is just ok for the price (about $100 per night). The room we stayed in was cramped for 3 people 2 double beds are stuffed into a room clearly built for 1 bed. The AC in our room is located in the bathroom. The folks who checked us in were very polite and nice.... More

This is our second time staying here. Very nice owners, wonderful lab Burt, and good location next to the Northland market and town. The rooms are very clean and a good shower! We will stay here again when we are in Ely. WiFi is strong and always available.

We arrived early with 12 people on 10 motorcycles. The owners were nice enough to let us put all our stuff in one room while the other rooms were still being cleaned. Rooms were very clean with coffee maker, microwave & fridge. It was a little odd that the air conditioning was in the bathroom, so sleeping area didn't cool... More

Our trip up was wonderful. Very clean and accommodating. Had a blast at Blueberry fest and fishing. The owners really know the area and had great suggestions on where to eat and go fishing. The decor was also nice not out dated like a lot of hotels I've stayed at.

They have simply appointed, clean rooms and we were very happy that all 6 of us had a bed to sleep in in the same room before our 5 day camping trip. 2 Queens, one single, and a cot. We would highly recommend this motel before your BWCAW trip!

Along with the "funky" pink tiled bathroom, our room had a coffee maker, microwave, and a small fridge, and a king bed!!! Owner was very friendly and accommodating to us with our motorcycle, as impending stormy weather was headed our way and he allowing us to park under the entry way to keep the bike out of the weather.
