Consistent, well run no surprises. When we travel with our cat she loves the pet rooms. The thought put into these rooms is excellent as well as the comfort in all rooms. Nice pool in the middle of the Nevada desert.

On our previous trips through Ely, we have over nighted at a number of the motels. To us this is the best value in Ely. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Our room came with 2 queen beds. At check-in we received coupons for 2 margaritas, a $3.00 slot machine play and a newspaper. Our only negative comment was... More

Way out on the loneliest road in the US, we found an oasis! This hotel has everything: themed rooms that are clean and quiet, more than ample food portions that are tasty and satisfying and entertainment that just seemed to belong in a dusty western cowboy town! We were most appreciative of the friendliness after traveling so far without a... More

Very clean hotel, comfortable. Steak was tough in café and service was slow and not very attentive to needs. Breakfast has always been good but again service wasn't the best. overall the hotel is a nice value for the price.

Pleasantly surprised at how nice the newly renovated rooms were. Extra large TV and a bar counter with sink made the room seem special. Friendly staff and an decent restaurant that serves large meals. Casino is a little smokey. All in all it was a pleasant stay. Also noted that the walk-in price was lower then any internet price.

The comments from this guest are full of inconsistencies. We have owned the property since 2008 and it is listed as the #2 best Hotel to stay in while visiting Ely. We would like to respond to each of the lady’s comments: 1. The R.V. Park is closed every year for the winter season due to freezing pipes. This has... More

Large portions and good selection of food but trying to order food and drinks is the problem if you eat in the bar area you get better service but it's really smoky they have good spaghetti and their sandwiches are huge

I was hoping to spend the night in their RV park, but it was full. I had an early dinner (all-you-can-eat pot roast special for $12). Decided to check at the desk to see if a room was available at a reasonable rate. I was offered a king room for $70. The room far exceeded expectations. Quite large, loaded with... More
