Located in the downtown of Ely, Adventure Inn is a super, reasonably priced place to stay. Our family of four chose here because of the dog-friendly rooms and we are so glad we did. They upgraded us to a better room and we each had a queen bed to ourselves (the owner told us that we had new mattresses) the... More

I was only in town for one night and though it's a sparsely furnished room (felt a bit IKEAish), it was all that I needed. There was even a fridge and microwave. It was a short walk across the road the market and I was good for dinner. Parking is onsite and free, so is the wifi. There was no... More

Thank you for your review and hoped your trip across the US was fun and not too tiring. Our rooms have furniture made from either recycled rubber trees or old growth white Pine from an old grain elevator that was built in the 1880s. The beauty in the wood is part of each room. Our soaps that are offered are... More

We know a good room when we see it, and the room at Adventure Inn was superb. We were in the newer addition and the room was large, airy, and clean, clean, clean. The bathroom was surprisingly large and the tile work was excellent. The owners are friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this place.

The room was very clean and nice. The only problem I had was with the wi-fi. It was very weak when it did work and most of the time it did not. Other than that I would stay here again and recommend the hotel to anyone.

Thank you for your kind words and concerns over WiFi. That is a huge challenge in Ely as our providers are limited and we do experience momentary black outs. That being said, we realize that we need to improve our service and are in the process of working with some professionals to improve our WiFi. Connecting to the internet has... More

We came to Ely to attend a wedding. The front desk staff was pleasant and hospitable. Our room was comfortable with unique decor. The room was reasonably priced and we truly enjoyed our stay. We would highly recommend staying at the Adventure Inn.

It started out great-nice flowers and landscaping, outdoor seating, good rates, nice linens.Then we tried to sleep. We could hear conversations 2-3 or more doors away, water running, toilets flushing, all night long. Finally quieted down at about 4am, then started up again at about 5 when the fishing and hunting types started getting up to go fish or hunt.... More

I was sad to hear that your stay with us was unsatisfactory. We have someone at the desk 24 hrs and if there is a disturbance of any sort we do try hard to quiet the noise. We have had a series of weddings on weekends and the returning guests will be back in the rooms later at night. However,... More

We spent four nights in Ely, staying at Adventure Inn. What a great place! Beautiful flowers, super clean rooms, nicely decorated, comfortable beds and not a bad price. The staff were so nice, gave great directions and always asked if we needed anything. We stayed in room 22, upstairs room, we could hear people talking on the ground level rooms,... More

We stayed here just one night for our visit to Ely. We stayed on the 2nd floor 201. The room was clean and looked like it has been remodeled. Big TV and lots of room to lay out my travel yoga mat for my morning dvd workout which was nice. We didn't hear any road noise considering how close to... More

Came off the trail early due to poor weather and no campsites. Choose the inn based on curb appeal. Quiet even though the inn is on the main drag in town. Had a nice cup of local roast coffee while watching the world go by from a small patio garden tucked in between the lot and the building.

I am so glad you enjoyed our gardens and coffee. Yes! we have guests who stay with us in part because we offer some of the finest coffee out there. And, the coffee originates here in Ely. Happy you were able to enjoy the rest of your trip in spite (or because) of the weather. Sue and Mark More

We (5 fishermen & women from Tennessee & Ohio) stayed at Adventure Inn on two weekends in late August 2013, inbound to the Boundary Waters and outbound for home. We rented a room with 4 beds, adequate for our group. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable. The TV is a little small, as is the bathroom,... More
