We spent a night there before driving north. The room was clean, with a small fitness center. In the lounge and the bar there's stink of smoke, we had only breakfast, the portions were large but everything was served in tinfoil or plastic. If we ever come back to Ely we could spend one night there, but no more than... More

Room was OK and that's all we really needed. We used bookingdotcom and arrived to NO reservation. Motel was great, gave us an upgraded room for less money. While the motel was completely full the room was quiet. Registration is in the casino, be prepared for an overwhelming smell of smoke. Don't expect much for breakfast unless you like warm... More

Our stay was good and the room was clean .However the bar and restaurant really stank of smoke . The restaurant was well themed and had great food but the portions are quite large. Our stay was great but do not expect the motel to be extremely fancy.

The room was pretty average but clean, next to Casino and a short walk to a Chinese place that was unfortunately closed for the day. Ate at the Casino. Motel Hallway had sort of loose rippling carpet that was laid poorly. Got a good sleep and was off in the AM before the free breafast.

Housekeeping was excellent and the employees were friendly and extremely helpful! Great place to stay! I was surprised that the motel offered a free Continental breakfast to guests with typical continental breakfast including scrambled eggs &sausage.

Room was clean and neat. Cool place with casino. Very reasonable price. Would stay there again. Small town but good for a stop over on a long drive. People were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was very good.

Had a fantastic stay at the Jailhouse. Big room with a really great bed: pillowtop with nice linens. Great value for the money. Be sure to choose non smoking if you don't smoke, as the casino smells of smoke but our room did not. My husband and I stayed in a non pet room, but they have pet rooms if... More

When I arrived I noticed a no vacancy light even on a Sunday evening so I am happy I called and spoke with Darlene to make a reservation. Check in was easy and staff was friendly. I was placed in a room across the street - hotel still had the much mentioned jailhouse theme, along with some awesome history town... More
