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.

The beds are super comfy but the phones don't work the wifi doesn't work. The cafe that you get a $2 off coupon for is so not worth it. Spend the extra $2 and go across the street to the Hotel Nevada.

Coming from Great Basin N.P. and heading towards Lake Tahoe we needed a place for the night. To add some pleasure we planned on visiting Ely’s Northern Nevada Railway Museum, and chose to take Highway 50 for next day’s drive west. The Railway Museum is a fantastic place we cannot recommend enough; the so-called Loneliest Road Highway 50 is not... More

We had a very spacious room with a super king bed in the annex of the Jailhouse, loved the theming, easy to find on the main st and park right outside your room. We didn't use the restaurant, bar or coffee shop on our one night stay but both are in the main building opposite. I have marked down for... More

We selected this budget hotel based on the reviews. Unfortunately the room we had was not very good. There was mold in bathroom, and hair on the floor from a previous person. Reserved a King bed months ago directly from the hotel, but a king was not available. Flat panel TV but not HD. Limited channels I would not recommend... More

Jailhouse Motel was a good value for a road stop. We had a very comfortable bed. The room was very clean and included a small refrigerator with freezer. Because of the casino there is no problem with late check-in. The room included a voucher for $2.50 off breakfast in the cafe. Food was ok, nothing great.

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
