Magnuson Hotel Park Vue

Reviewed August 6, 2013

This older Best Western had air conditioning that wasn't working properly and never cooled the room below 80 degrees. Wifi was available only outside the door, not in the room. While the price wasn't too high, the motel lacked many of the things we have come to expect in a Best Western--pool; cleanliness; decent services. There are better places to stay in Ely.

Room Tip: Five rooms are up an outdoor stairway; ask for a main floor room if you want to park outside your do...

I often stay at Best Westerns on the road because I assume there is a company standard to adhere to. Ely, Nevada was a serious disappointment. Rooms were marginally clean, that is, the open areas had been vacuumed but corners and under tables were not. Hallways to the rooms were littered with small trash, food wrappers and leaves and dirt. The only stairway to the upstairs rooms had two broken steps with signs posted to be careful. The steps were concrete and parts had broken off and both steps were loose. When you dialed for the front desk you ended up with another hotel desk down the street who apparently run both motels. They then give you a number for an on site person to contact. Will not be staying here again.

The owners are extremely nice and hard working but they are fighting a losing battle with this place. Smelly, old, run-down rooms, plain and simple. Because I liked the people I can't bear to give them one star but that is really what this place deserves. As an aside, Ely has really gone downhill in the last few years and that is sad. I am done with highway 50 or at least staying in Nevada on 50.

We chose Best Western thinking it would be like the rest of the Best Western chain. It's not. There is no pool, the room was full of flies, not stocked properly and the beds were uncomfortable and noisy. And to top it all off we couldn't even find the motel.

This is your basic small town motel located in Ely, Nevada. Parking is right in front of the room if you are located on the ground floor. (There are five rooms on the second floor.) This is an older property, but the rooms were clean. I had a queen bed in my room (number 105), and my 86-year old mother had a handicap room (number 106) with a queen bed. I had a refrigerator with a freezer in my room. There was a tiny microwave on top of the refrigerator. The check in took about five minutes. The check out took about two minutes. There is a basic continental breakfast offered in the morning that has four tables in the breakfast area which is located within the lobby. All staff encountered at the Best Western Park Vue Motel were pleasant and friendly. I will stay here again when in the area.

Room Tip: If you don't like climbing stairs, reserve a ground floor room. There are no elevators at this...

This is a small, obviously older facility, not representative of the other Best Westerns we've been to. All rooms have exterior access, which is convenient for unloading and loading luggage for the ground floor rooms. Parking space seemed very limited but apparently is sufficient, since we were able to find a place when we returned from dinner and the No Vacancy sign was lit. The room was small, but adequate. Furniture included a table with 2 chairs, which was immediately in front of the air conditioner and blocked some of the air flow. It was also hard to access the chair on the far side of the table as there was very little room between the table and one of the two queen beds. A desk and desk chair were also available. The second floor seemed to be somewhat thin, as we could hear folks walking about in the room above us. Similarly, the exterior walls were thin as we could easily hear folks talking outside the room.

The location in Ely is good and walk-able to the small down town restaurants and bars. Breakfast is basic, and the carpets really need replacing. TV reception is very poor. I think it is a little overpriced for the quality.
