Reviewed July 5, 2013

After checking out the options in Ely, we took a chance on this place and are glad we did. It was bright and clean. We especially enjoyed the outdoor seating. Breakfast was fresh-baked pastries, coffee and tea, which was perfect for us. We also appreciated the earth-friendly way they care for the property. We would definitely stay again!

We enjoyed staying here and slept well. Everything you needed and free wifi. Breakfast was coffee/tea and sweet scones/buns. Nice but we prefer something not so sweet for breakfast. Staff very friendly and chatty. Different from normal hotel rooms but in a good way. Would go back.

We arrived via a recommendation, and were very happy. It is generally well priced for Ely. The owners are very personable, and the place is very clean. The room was spacious, and it is keen that it is a 'green' establishment. Recycling bin in the rooms, etc. Nice beds, lots of outlets, fridge, microwave, very nice bathroom, and all was new and very nice. Our only negative was that the walls are not sound-proofed as some chain places. We could hear our neighbors on occasion. The coffee and rolls in the morning were nice, as well.

Nice rooms, doesnt smell standard hotel room "perfume", clean smell. Our room on 2nd floor was nice, all you need basically. Only "bad" I could say, was limited breakfast. But there was free wifi, so that equals it... ;-). Took a walk to SubWay a few feet up the road instead, so another business in the area made a few dollars as well.
Could easily return if we were in the area again.

For work reasons, I've spent weeks living at the Adventure Inn in several different rooms (in the front building---I've never been in the back) and I couldn't have survived it at any other hotel. The rooms are huge and light-filled. Everything is new and exceptionally clean. There are tables to sit at by the windows, couches or soft chairs in rooms with one bed, enormous lovely beds with the softest organic sheets and comforters. And good coffee downstairs every morning with pastries.

There's solid wifi, and a small fridge and microwave in every room. The entry to each room is tiled up to the open closet, which makes it easy in slushy winter weather to keep the mess from boots from ever getting to the carpets, which is a smart way to keep the carpet feeling clean. Their commitment to environmentally-sound practices is smart and much-appreciated.

The owners and staff are all so kind and accommodating and friendly. The experience of staying at the Adventure Inn can't even be compared to other places in the same price range ---it is so far out of that league.

Oh---and the Inn is in easy walking distance of pretty much every restaurant or shop you could want to go to in town.

New rooms, I'm not really into the Eco Deal but this place does a great job with it . Very Clean, no breakfast but for the $ that's cool. Road noise in our room (202) was there but in a small town it wasn't to bad. I would for sure stay here again because it just doesn't get any cleaner

Thank you for your kinds words. We try hard to do our own little bit to practice the 3 R's.
Reduce, Reuse, and then Recycle. It is a lifestyle choice that we brought with us to our business. Our simple cleaners of vinegar and baking soda + elbow grease can keep rooms as clean as harsher chemicals. We do try hard to offer our best to our guests and appreciate the critique. Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to send a review.

Very good family-run hotel. The owners were friendly and obviously wanted to ensure we enjoyed our stay. They shared with us about the changes they're making to make the motel more 'green', which was interesting.

The rooms were quite clean and well cared for, comfortable and quiet.
