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

The Adventure Inn is extremely clean. This is really important to us. All the corners of the place are spotless. The beds are comfortable. Staff is friendly. Parking is great. They offer pastries and free coffee. Nothing fancy, but great for the price.

Read the Trip Advisor reviews and chose Adventure Inn. We chose wisely. It is as advertised. Easy to find. Friendly, clean, comfortable and a very good value. We'll stay again on our next visit to Ely.

We brought our little dog to Ely to go to the Vet. We stayed two nights. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. We found our accomodations very comfortable. The location was very convenient, right on the main street in town. The place was so clean that if we didn't know that pets were allowed....we wouldn't have guessed!... More

Thank you for your kind words. When you arrived, our town had no electricity . You were so gracious and kind when I handed you a candle and asked you to be careful with flushing the toilet. Luckily, the electricity came back on after a few hours and all was well. All of us at the Inn want each of... More

A bunch of us stayed in the eagles nest before big canoe trip. The room was great and a treat. But the people and the donuts at breakfast really special. Nothing less than a hootenanny of joy. I will return for a room, but really the donuts and wise charm of the help!!!

Went up to Ely for the Winter Festival. Decided to stay over night and choose Adventure Inn. First time staying here, booked a king Jacuzzi room- Room 102 in the Solar Building. What a great room. The room was awesome, décor was great and the room was very clean. Very reasonable rates. Great location for staying over night in Ely.... More

Stayed here for a night before our trip out into the boundary waters back in July. Could not have been more pleased. The staff was first rae, very helpful and kind. They made sure we were all set up and got our trip off to a great start. Rooms were clean, comfortable and large. We had 5 of us in... More

We stayed here on Oct 25th. We were in a pet friendly room as we bring our dog with us. The place was packed with many guests and quite a few dogs. Our room was very clean - I could not tell at all that it was a "pet friendly" room. We had a nice size flat screen TV, a... More

We have stayed here in the past several years ago and decided on a whim to visit Ely and try it again. We reserved a king room in the solar building, which is fairly new and on the first level. It was a pet friendly room also, which is great because we travel with our dog. The room itself wasn't... More

Homey, pet friendly rooms with reasonable rates (including the added fee for out pet). Our room was not fancy, but it was clean. The fresh pastries continental breakfast and good coffee was a bonus. We totally enjoyed the friendly helpful staff,and their truely EcoFriendly efforts.

Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to write a review. We try hard to provide a good stay at a reasonable price. Winter rates are now available so that makes our stay even more of a bargain. We are also welcoming for dogs and only charge $10/night extra. Hope that you will return to Ely again. More
