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.

Ely has a strip of fairly similar local hotels. I chose this one because it had the best price. Was on the edge of town. Nice size room. Excellent internet access. Staff was very friendly in helping to find a medical clinic and advising on a detour out of town.

This is the best deal up north – when you just need a place to lay your head for a night (or a few…) – simple, but wonderfully CLEAN and very comfortable. Plenty of room for a motel stay – with a microwave and a nice little table w/2 chairs. Convenient location too. The owners do take pride in the... More

Picked out this place on the fly. Nice little motel with the basic needs met. Pretty decent wi-fi within the room. Perfectly comfortable with pleasant innkeepers. Petting their black lab is included at no extra charge!

We had a pleasant 2 night stay ... one before the Boundary Waters and one after ... very basic but clean and comfortable.

Older motel, but very well kept. Owner's take pride in the property. Best nights rest I've had in a long time! Clean, clean, clean!! No spiders, no bugs and only one small fly that I probably let in myself!

Once a year, we travel to Ely for a fishing trip into the Boundary Waters and stay a night at the Paddle Inn before entry. This year, the fishing was a little slow on Basswood, so we spent five nights. With a few tips from owners Dan and Rose, we did very well fishing the local lakes! Sauna was nice... More
