Ely, Nevada is a very old and small town so there isn't much to choose from in the way of hotels. If I ever visit again I would go with a more expensive motel/hotel. Although the beds were firm and the room appeared clean there are some definite issues. The chairs were badly soiled and burn holes in the carpet.... More

If we were to stay in Ely again it wouldn't be at the Jailhouse casino and hotel. At $70.00 plus there such be a very poor attempt to hide mold on the floor next to the tub. It is convenient to the casino that I won a few bucks. Smallest tv in any of the places we have stay in... More

Nice people to deal with, clean place, and good value. Right on the main drag and across the street from a good restaurant for dinner and a good cafe for breakfast. Not much in Ely. A pleasant surprise.

As you arrive you are greeted by a host who will later stand at your table and discuss how awefull you are for eating then sticking around to chat because he needs the table yet the back is empty, very rude . The salads are wilted and steaks have no seasoning and did not have the demi glace I came... More

Apparently we lucked out when I called to book here. Never stayed here before and was completely unaware that they had rooms inside the casino, their website only showed the annex buildings that were across the street. When we checked in our room was just a few steps down the hall. The room itself is small very, very outdated, it... More

This motel sucks. It cost more than a nice room in Salt Lake City. We got almost no sleep. The room was crap. Other guests kept us up until 2:30 AM. The front desk did nothing. Dont stay here. Our stay was a total waste of money & time.

This was my first stay here. I asked about an upgrade to one of their nicer rooms indoors, meaning what would it cost, etc. The lady at the front desk snapped at me and said 'we have one available but you're gonna have to pay for it!!!' Well, based on her attitude I declined. When I entered the room she... More

We had dinner in the jailhouse restaurant. Couple steaks and 2 kids meals. It was a pleasant dining experience for California foodies. The salad was fresh, I was craving veggies and the kids meals were tasty enough. The sides were baked potato, which is hard to get wrong and was hit. Steaks cooked a perfect medium. Server was a bit... More

After having a terrible experience at a motel that we had pre-booked we needed somewhere to spend the night. Over a terrific dinner at the Jailhouse Steak House we thought "I wonder if they have any rooms here?". Low and behold they not only had rooms but they were clean, comfortable and 1/3 less than the place we had pre-booked.... More

Spent two nights here earlier this week. My room, aka "cell" , was clean, comfortable and quiet. I was part of a large group and check in was a tad slow, but no one minded because they offered everyone in line a free drink!! Great way to ease the issue... Ate at the coffee shop twice, both meals were good... More
