Decent night's sleep, clean room. Very smoky lobby, but Room was fresh enough. Breakfast was a bit weak for someone avoiding gluten but a good value for the price paid. Would stop in again on our next trip south.

found ourselves in Ely after a very long drive on Highway 50, tired and needing a bed. Looking at reviews, we decided on this hotel, and we were satisfied with our decision. Check in was easy and fast, we got Cell 122. The room was not horrible, but not wonderful. The mini fridge was sitting on the luggage bench and...

The hotel is a reflection of city, old and obsolete. Ely is located in the mid-point between Grand Junction and Reno. A must stop place if you travel on Hwy 50. Do not expect too much, no fancy furnitures, no colorful decorations, neither shinny fixtures. Keep in mind, a reasonable clean room for a quiet place to sleep.

I read many reviews of this property before we booked. Yes the cigarette smoke hits you as soon as you come into the property. Despite fans positioned all around you just can't get away from it. We stayed in Cell 144 and while the smell of smoke continued in the halls the room was surprisingly smoke free. From check in...

The motel rooms was very clean, but the rooms definitely need updating. The carpet need to be stretched and furniture brought up to date. However, the rooms were and the beds were super cleans. The ambiance tied in with the theme of being in jail. It was fun. For the price, it was OK for a few nights.

The hotel is easy to find when you get off hiway 50. Was quite a few motorcyclists staying the same time they had most of the bikers in one section across from check in. The restaurant was moderately priced and the food was ok. the room rate was reasonable.

We stayed in "newer addition" so we didn't get to stay in a cell. Our room was spacious, clean and fairly quiet. Everything worked...TV, coffee pot, tiny fridge. Beds were just fine. Walking distance to main street. Did not go to coffee shop. Hot tub area was indoors, clean and water hot.
