Bad experience. The toilet seat was worn out. The bare wood is showing. Towel bar feel off the wall. Carpet needs to be streached, tripped twice. The beds are terrible and the pillows were lumpy. The worse thing was the shower suddenly changed from warm water to scalding hot in the middle of my shower. It was a terrible experience.... More

I am sorry to hear that you feel you had a bad experience at our hotel. I do wish you would have talked to our Front Desk and given us the opportunity to rectify the problems. If you would let me know what room you were in, I will be sure that the Maintenance department fixes every issue you addressed.... More

This motel is clean and priced right. Staff was friendly. That about says it. The room was very dated but comfortable. Considering the location is a rest stop more than a tourist destination, this is expected. The associated restaurants (steakhouse and cafe) were both good.

It's not a four star hotel obviously, but I gave it four stars for the quality of my experience there given my expectations/budget. The evening desk staff was very courteous, the room was clean and warm when I arrived (important for a winter night's stay) ... the restaurant they have offers good bang for the buck at breakfast. I was... More

For the rate, at the last minute this room was not bad at all! The only complaint I have are the tiny pillows and the hard beds. Other than that, the room was extremely clean and well kept. If I were ever stuck in Ely again, I would stay again.

We looked around town and redrove the main street. Some of the other motels looked pretty scary or run down. What a surprise we had with the Jailhouse. The room was in the second building behind the one that looks like a motel. They had a specific name for it but I can not recall what it was. Just ask... More

We were exhausted by the time we arrived. Many hours on the road with truck problems The beds were great and the rooms were clean. We had dinner at the Jailhouse restaurant and the food was yummy. 1/2 the price of the La Quinta Inn. Good choice happy with all.

We decided that we didn't want to make the trip from St. George, Ut back home to Idaho in one drive. This was an excellent choice for an overnight stay. The room was spacious and clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The wi-fi worked great in our room, not so much any where else, but connected to the Hotel Nevada... More

Very friendly staff, quiet, comfortable and clean, pet friendly ($10 charge though) good food. WiFi signal reaches but they need to reset their routing table. It's assigning APIPA addresses (169.254.x.x) to All of my devices (iPad, laptop). Nothing wrong with my devices, as I'm on one now down the street.

The room was clean and spacious, the bed comfortable, and the shower water pressure was fabulous. The carpet and furniture was old and stained and I wasn't keen to take off my shoes except in bed. The wifi worked intermittently. No free breakfast (upon check we were given a discount voucher for breakfast in the casino) Overall it was quiet... More

This place is WONDERFUL! The staff is wonderful at accommodating our every need, whether it was their job or not. Quite a team they have, and I tip my hat to all of them. Dinner in the "Cellblock Steakhouse" was FANTASTIC! This is one of the finest atmospheres I have ever dined in. The tables are very private and setup... More
