“So, so don't go...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2004

This place is HIGHLY over priced! $75 dollars for a dirty room! The carpet was trashed. Everything was dirty in the room. The only thing that saved it was the pool was ok. The help was decent, or at least the girl in the morning was nice. The bald guy at night wasn't the brightest. He tried to bill me $200 dollars at first, for 1 night! The restraunt was horrible! They were very slow, and it was only us and one other couple in there! The food wasn't very good either. I would stay away. The only reason we went was they had the best looking pool online! Pictures are decieving. Read the reviews...

When I saw the unfriendly outside from the Motel 6 in Ely, I cancelled my reservation and drive to the Holiday Inn in Ely. Friendly staff and a clean room, and the food in the Restaurant was great, if I'll come back to Ely, I'll stay another night in the Holiday Inn.
