Staying here was part of our honeymoon, and everyone was very nice and personable. The food was great. We had only one thing that came up a few times: no bathrobes. We would have bought them if they were available (there is a LOT of Grand Ely Lodge stuff for sale), and maybe it only became apparent to us with... More

We enjoyed our stay. It was nice to have spot outside our room to sit and listen to the loons. For the most part the room was very quiet. The only noise we heard was the vacuum cleaner after closing time in the restaurant above us.

Beautiful setting, friendly staff, close to the Bear place and the International Wolf Center. Ely is a great little city with good shopping and dining selections. The Grand Lodge a very nice place to stay; next time we will bring our boat, stay longer, and do some fishing too.

You could use a recliner in the room, for those who can't sleep on a bed. The breakfast prices were a bit outlandish. Otherwise, we had a really nice trip. I'll comment that it's too much to expect a minimum of 200 words for your review!

Loved the amenities at the hotel, great place to stay with little kids. Loved the pool/games indoors and marina access, had a great time using the pontoon. I also loved how close it is to Ely, an easy walk to go out to eat or shop.

Good quality hotel with very nice pool/Jacuzzi/sauna area, lakeside marina, with good restaurant and room service. Pet-friendly rooms opened out onto a grassy area overlooking the lake - very nice. Next to a 4 mile walking/biking trail, with views of two very nice lakes. Classic northern MN vacation spot!
