We stayed at the "in" and had a great time. Very comfortable stay. Spacious. The dog was very comfortable as well. Clean. The community space is very nice and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped. The decor is nice with the wood being the best feature.

We came up for a short 3-day trip, and as regular to the Ely area for the last 23 years, this was one place I had yet to stay! A Stay Inn Ely has an absolutely charming building, from the wrap around porch (too cold to use in February), to the entire first floor dining and lounge area. Fully stocked... More

We have stayed here many times since it opened. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Each room is done completely in a different wood. There is a lovely kitchen dinning room lounging area with a cozy fireplace. You can entertain friends there or visit with other guests. There is fresh complimentary bakery from the Basket Tree just down the street... More

This lodging is now branded as Jasper Lofts, AKA BaskeTree Lofts, located at 36 West Sheridan above the bakery. -We arrived at the room to see a space heater setup. I assumed it would supplement the main heat. Little did I know that it was the only source of heat. The baseboard heating did not function. With the temperature outside... More

Cindy B, Director of Operations at A Stay Inn Ely, responded to this review

Dear RickK0203, Please accept my most sincere apology for your displeasure; it is certainly not our intention to provide inadequate service to our guests. The last few weeks, Ely has seen some cold evenings and the space heater was intended as a secondary heat source - not the primary. Based off of your feedback, we have ordered new baseboard heaters... More

Clean, charming, quiet room. We stayed a night in the Indigo room and it was very comfortable - the room is so relaxing and most businesses are within walking distance. I would choose to stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed at the A Stay Inn Ely on a recent trip to northern Minnesota and the little gem town of Ely. The room was very clean but there was not a chair or couch to sit on. There was a little kitchen table with no chairs. If you want to sit you had to sit on... More

As a group of five canoe paddlers, we were completely satisfied with our stay. Our room was spacious and very clean. Next time we'll bring our own appetizers and beverages to relax on the spacious porch before dinner. Good WiFi and complimentary coffee at a great coffee shop two doors away. We'll be back.

I have been canoeing the Ely area for 13 years and have stayed all over: resorts; outfitters; and other main street motels. This is my 3rd time at A Stay Inn Ely and it is my favorite. It is centrally located on main street. There is free off-street parking. The rooms are basic but clean. The beds are comfortable. The... More

We had full access to kitchen/fridge. We could have made and used the kitchen table any time. Very open and welcoming, come and go atmosphere. We stayed in the Ivory room. Views not included, but we spent so little time there, it was just fine. The bed was very comfortable and new. Some guests were loud on the porch later... More

My husband and I have stayed here the past five summers after returning from trips to the BWCA/Quetico. The rooms are comfortable and inviting. The lodge atmosphere and wrap around porch are welcoming. Guests are always interesting and friendly. The common living room and kitchen are comfortable and well-equipped. The location is very convenient for walking to restaurants or strolling... More
