We stayed in the new part of the hotel. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They let us dry our clothes that got wet on a boat trip in their dryer. It is on the main drag of town so it can be a little noisy

We spent one night here on our way to the BWCA. This was very convenient to restaurants, shops and the Ely ranger station. Hotel owners were very friendly and helpful with directions. We stayed in the new section of the hotel - very modern and clean.

At least twice a year (sometimes three), I go canoe camping in the BWCA. For the past three years, I've always booked a room at the Adventure Inn for the night before put-in. If you're looking for a four-star hotel, you wont find one in Ely (check out the Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast if you want something fancier). However, if you want a clean, tidy, reasonably inexpensive place to stay the night before your camping trip, this is the place for you. Just this summer (June), the owners completed a brand-spankin' new addition; the rooms are squeaky clean. The "older" part is also very clean and some have small patios in front of the room. Louise, who sometimes works the front desk is a charm.

Thank you for your kind words and vote of confidance. Our brand new building which replaced the really OLD buildings has been well received. It is funny to hear that the back building which is 9 yrs old is now our new "old" building. We so appreciate our Adventure Inn guests! Sue

By pure luck we had the pleasure of staying at Adventure Inn Saturday night of the Blueberry Festival. Our previous night accomodations at another motel was a living nightmare. When I walked into the Adventure Inn office in tears early Saturday morning, they had a room just come available due to an early departure and Irene was so friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful, clean and quiet room for our last evening in Ely. This lovely Inn will quickly and deservingly become Ely's #1. Everyone one of their staff was hard at work and proud. Always with a smile. We will never stay anywhere else on our future trips to Ely.

I stayed here with some friends for a few days before and after a canoe trip in the area - the hotel itself was perfectly adequate for our needs - comfortable, hot showers and very good coffee in the mornings..

What really made the place special was the warm welcome from Sue, her husband and their helpful staff !
