We really enjoyed our stay here, great location on the east side of town, right on the main street. Very accommodating staff, and a very well kept property that has made an effort to incorporate sustainability in its new addition. We really enjoyed Ely, and this was a great place to have as a home base.

This is a very nice hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The sheets and pillows in the room were top notch. We got discount tickets on our trips to the wolf and bear centers in town at the front desk. The fresh scones and coffee were the highlight of our stay.

We enjoyed our stay at the Adventure Inn. The front desk people were friendly and the room was clean. There are just a few minor things I will mention: The "green" theme of the property came with a few annoyances: The toilet paper was nearly empty when we checked in. Yes there was an extra roll, but I still don't... More

Thank you for your review and the critique of our amenities. I have shared your comments with our staff this morning and have again reminded them about the need to remove the nearly empty rolls of toilet paper. Typically we do remove the nearly empty and place them in a basket in the office/lobby bathroom. We use them there so... More

The room was very clean. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was large and clean. The staff was awesome. I will stay here again. The hotel tries to be green. They gather rain water for watering the grounds.

I had fun here, I felt like my mother (in a good way) was working behind the desk. Very clean and right in the middle of Ely. You are within walking distance to anywhere within the town of Ely. Great customer service!

When you love flowers and a very pleasant stay with a clean room. Go to Louise, she is really your host. Also in for a chat in the evening, when you sit outside. She knows the city. Parkingplace in front of your door.

Stayed in Ely for a couple of nights for a family event. The rooms were very clean and nice. They had fresh pastries and coffee in the morning. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a great value. We would definitely stay there again.

Went to Ely to attend my niece's wedding. Found this place on line and trusted the Trip Advisor reviews. So glad I did. Rooms are simple but clean. Beds and pillows are super comfortable. Best sleep in 4000 miles. Staff friendly and helpful--I ask a lot of questions. Fresh locally made pastries in the morning. Yum! I cannot recommend this... More
