Ely has a strip of fairly similar local hotels. I chose this one because it had the best price. Was on the edge of town. Nice size room. Excellent internet access. Staff was very friendly in helping to find a medical clinic and advising on a detour out of town.

This is the best deal up north – when you just need a place to lay your head for a night (or a few…) – simple, but wonderfully CLEAN and very comfortable. Plenty of room for a motel stay – with a microwave and a nice little table w/2 chairs. Convenient location too. The owners do take pride in the property and treat everyone very well. So nice that they have a few rooms designated that allow dogs. Thank you!! I would recommend folks stay here anytime and will be back myself if ever in the BWCA again.

Picked out this place on the fly. Nice little motel with the basic needs met. Pretty decent wi-fi within the room. Perfectly comfortable with pleasant innkeepers. Petting their black lab is included at no extra charge!

Room Tip: All of them are on the ground floor with available parking right in front. I was in one of the front...

Older motel, but very well kept. Owner's take pride in the property. Best nights rest I've had in a long time! Clean, clean, clean!! No spiders, no bugs and only one small fly that I probably let in myself!
