The "GEL" is a great place to stay in Ely where you can get the wilderness experience without all of the hassle. Comfortable and spacious rooms (some dog friendly) face either the historic event Pioneer Mine or. Shagawa lake. We have a large shepherd/lab dog who loves this hotel for the 4 mile Trezona Trail across the street and public... More

We will definitely be back. We had a lake side room and the view was tremendous. Next time we want to take more days here and partake in the kayaks and pedal boats. Thank you for the friendliness of the staff.

Our stay was fantastic. Everyone went out of their way to make sure our stay was top notch. The lodge has amazing views. We had a lake view room with a king bed. Room was clean and comfortable. We will be back for sure.

Went here after 4 days in the BWCA and it was perfect for rest and recovering. Bar and the dining room were excellent and really well priced. Post hike Bloody Mary's were delicious. The hot tub hit the spot for our sore paddling muscles. Would go back again!!

The whole staff was so friendly and accommodating. Our Daughter's wedding could not have been run more smoothly. Kristy and Kelsey were absolutely marvelous. They left no detail to chance. The wedding and reception and meal were all terrific. We highly recommend the Grand Ely Lodge for a destination wedding venue for anyone who would like to get married in... More

I was very pleased from the beginning. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was big enough for me and my two grandchildren with a gorgeous view of the lake and so many things to do our days and evenings were full. The guys at the marina helped with our fishing questions and the equipment worked well.... More

Beautiful Views and friendly staff. There for a wedding and was a great spot in the middle of everything. Ely is such a friendly town. We didn't meet one person that didn't have a smile on their face or willing to help us.

Just stayed at the Grand Ely Lodge once again--this is my go-to destination for both beginning and ending a week in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. I've come both with a Scout Troop and with adult groups, and it's great for both. It's without doubt the nicest accommodations available in Ely, and a very good value at that. Staff... More

Even though I don't think it has been updated in years, My room was clean and comfortable. The room had a great view of the lake. I was there for 5 days so I did not need my room to be cleaned during that time. Housekeeping did however ask if I needed anything, which they supplied to me. my room... More
