The best part about the place was the marina. The free kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, and fishing gear are on point. Employees are friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice, but nothing special. Breakfast was good and dinner at the lounge was nice.

If you stay overnight at the Grand Ely Lodge, request any room EXCEPT room or suite that is on the lower level below the restaurant and bar. Our room was 120 and I wouldn’t recommend it. Since the bar is open late and the restaurant is open early, the constant sound of footsteps above you makes for a less than... More

The price we paid, was over priced. Nothing special. Lumpy bed, very soft pillows, old bedspreads, just not worth the money. Will not stay there again. Food was ok, just had breakfast. Host wad very slow with table, people backed up, so the last couple was refused breakfast, they were not happy.

We were passing through for one night with a very large group . I am sad that we weren't staying longer. The hotel was very clean, friendly staff ,and had a beautiful view of the lake. We had a large meeting room reserved for us for dinner . Although the staff serving us was a bit inexperienced & slow the... More

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are very nice and we had a great view of the lake. My only recommendation for the staff is to stay on top of minor room repairs, as little dings in the walls can eventually lead to bigger problems.

We came from Brazil and we had a great time! The hotel provides great experiences. We enjoyed boat cruises, marshmallows, barbecue, fishing. The staff is really friendly too. The indoor swimming pool is also very great! The room is ok too. Thanks.

We very much enjoyed the hospitality and friendliness of these kind Ely-ites. We journeyed north for a Memorial Service and the folks at the front desk and staff throughout the hotel were extremely helpful, whether it was for directions, extra pillows or just a good "local" place to eat. We were retracing our family's roots and despite nearly 66 years... More

I was only there for one night so didn’t get a chance to fully explore all that they offered. Breakfast was good and promptly served. One big plus is the parking lot. There were a number of boats and contractor rigs in the lot so anyone looking to stage out of here with a trailer is in good shape, which... More

Went here on Monday and Tuesday leaving Wednesday. Was upgraded to a two bedroom suite, which was s nice surprise. The the staff were very friendly and the hotel was very clean. Was also happy when getting my breakfast bill. Kids eat free if you stay at the resort.

We enjoyed our stay at the Grand Ely Lodge and most impressive was the view of the ice frozen lake. Being from the south we just don't have landscaping like this so our kids were more the thrilled to look out the window to see an ice covered lake. The restaurant's best meal of the day is breakfast. We ate... More
