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

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.

Thank you for your kind words about our Louise. She is somewhat of a celebrity here. 80 yrs young and loves to meet and greet our guests. She will remember your name and will make sure that all your needs are met. We all love Louise! Sue More

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

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
