The hotel is located right on highway 93, so it was very easy to find. We were pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was! Very clean with solid surface vanity and nice towels. There was a refrigerator in the room, too. Hot drinks were available in the office, which was a nice bonus. The desk clerk was helpful in... More

Another road stop and Ely has lots and lots of motels. I once again checked out the trip advisor reviews, dismissed the ridiculous ones and chose this place after viewing the room. Service at the desk was a bit brusk, but maybe I was tired after the day on the road. Room was okay, had a comfy bed, decent linens,... More

Large clean and comfortable room that has been maintained well. Good bed with nice quality linens that were clean and spotless. The room had the typical amenities like frige and microwave with everything clean and inviting.

Based on the reviews, I sent my husband and sons to this motel. They were less than pleased. Bare wiring, needed updating, bed was ok, was clean. Receptionist kept repeating rules like no smoking even after husband made it clear he had never smoked etc. Location is fairly noisy due to casino although this not the motels fault.

Wow, what a lovely little motel. It is older, but they have tried hard and succeeded in giving it some desert class. Really impressed us. Only problem the only heat was one base board, a large one and it did the job, but was really concerned for it was a cold night and didn't think we could keep warm but... More

When we arrived it was very cold and snowing. Our room warm and comfortable. We had our dog and stayed in the pet room which was very clean, and smelled fresh not perfumed. We used the microwave in the office to heat our evening meal. They have hot chocolate, teas, and coffee available in the office too. We would stay... More

Previous reviewers directed us here, and they were spot on. The motel is well-located in the middle of town, with a one-block walk to an excellent Mexican restaurant. Although on a main road with trucks roaring by, the room was quiet. Everything about this place was comfortable, and the staff was warm and helpful. We enjoyed it so much that... More

This is a clean and modern hotel in Ely, NV. The rooms were clean and the beds were quite comfortable and not lumpy or rock-hard as I've experienced in other low-rate motels. In addition, it's conveniently located next to a great Chinese restaurant, the Double Wok, which has great food and service. I especially like the Moo Goo Gai Pan.

We spent the night at Bristlecone Motel 2 nights ago on our way to AZ. The grounds are kept neat and clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The first thing we noticed as we walked into our room was the fresh and clean smell. The room was good sized with pleasing colors and décor. Ample counter space, coffee maker... More

I arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning. The cost was very reasonable and I had a very good night sleep. Clean room, hot water and I would not hastate to stay there again or recommend it to my friends.
