I hope to stay here again next time I do the Ely half marathon. I hope to make use of the kayaks that were included in my room fee, such a nice bonus!! The front desk staff were very pleasant and always had a smile on their face!

Great area !! Fantastic view. We loved staying here. We were in town for a family Wedding so we didn't spend a lot of time in our rooms. We did eat breakfast here every morning and the food was very good. Well done GEL :)

A great place to stay.. A very convenient location close to the attractions we wanted to visit and the views of the lake were beautiful, especially the Eagle we watched. I hope we can make the trip again.

Comfortable, clean rooms. Wonderful views. Friendly and helpful staff. Great dining. Enjoyable and relaxing visit. Plenty of easy, available parking. Good walking and hiking areas. Make your reservation early as they are often very busy because Grand Ely Lodge is the Besy!

: The hotel is large, especially for Ely, MN, with three levels. It sits on a small hill above a lake with good but partly obstructed views. The lower level rooms face the lake and have a small patio with a couple of chairs. Our room was large with a small refrigerator and large screen TV. The bath was pretty... More

GEL is a great spot - beautiful country, nice room. Breakfast was terrific, dinner could have been better. We ordered the recommended bluegill but it was so heavily breaded we could hardly find the fish!

Showers are a pain in the butt to use. Bed sheets had obviously not been changed, the bed was only made up from the previous guest. Sinks and whirlpool bath were dirty and the carpet looked like it hadn't seen a vacuum in a month! Overall, definitely not worth over $200 per night and the 7-day cancellation policy is just...
