Took a trip here with a couple buddies to get away and our stay here was great! We were very satisfied with the cleaning protocols, given how old the building is and how COVID has affected the travel industry. Our meals were at the Cellblock

We stayed 2 nights, 1st floor in room 122..carpet very dirty, needs replacement. but housekeepers do a great job with what they have. Noisy with cars pulling out at 530 am. BUT I went to get ice and machine was not working in my building, so there was a sign that said go to lobby near front desk to get ice. Went back to my room and my key did not work. Now I have nothing on me, as I am locked out of my room. I walk in the door near registration and the clerk yells at me as I'm walking in-- "YOU have to wear a mask in here" very rudely. I said "you have masks behind the counter (as they keep them at the front desk as I had seen the day before". She said "Are YOU a player here?".I said "I am STAYING here." She whips out a mask and puts it on the counter-very curtly. I put on the mask, explained I have nothing on me, I am locked out of my room. She doesn't apologize for MY inconvenience of the key not working or say she understood why I may not have a mask on me. NO customer service, just explained she made me a new key. I walked away really ticked off and I will never stay here again. Front desk clerk, late afternoon on 7/14/2020. If they want people to return, they better think how they are going to treat their guests, but I will go somewhere else next time I am in Ely.

This was our second time staying here but will be our last. Cheap but this time our room was a dump. Carpet was rumpled up in places, bathroom floor had holes, room reeked of cigarettes. Bed was comfortable but sheets were not. If we hadn’t been so tired we would have left.

Ok, you expect a cheesy motel or two when driving across Nevada and the mountain west, but this place fit the bill for gross, run down, rip off dives! The air conditioning is old, loud, and useless; the rooms are mold and mildew pits (don’t go near the carpet lake at the ice machine); oh, and pick up some crack across the street while you’re there! At $75/night that should include at least a free bag.
