Very average, very acceptable. We had burgers and fried things next to them. Limited table service, the type of place where you order at the counter and they bring you your food. Perfectly fine but nothing to write home about.

Stayed one night 3/16/17. They put us in a room across the street from the main hotel which was fine because we could back right up to the room. Maybe we were put there because we are non smokers and have no pets. In the hotel proper there is a casino and from my observation at least every other person...

Overall not a bad hotel for the Ely area, about average compared to the Hotel Nevada. Only advantage was they had rooms with two beds. Only grip is we booked two rooms and asked in the reservation requests and comments for the second one to be pet friendly. When we checked in they did not see our request and we...

The road keeps taking us through Ely and this place is genuinely comfortable. If you have AAA or AARP, a room with tax comes in at $59. Ely is cold but these rooms are toasty. The mattresses are much nicer than the other place in town I reviewed, you will not regret paying $9 more for the major jump in...

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...
