This hotel is nice, but nothing special when you take the price into consideration. I wouldn't say there is anything specifically wrong with it. The staff are friendly, and attentive, the rooms are clean, but that is how things are supposed to be. I think the only reason to stay here again is because it is the only property of...

The Grand Ely Lodge sits on a beautiful site overlooking a lake.We were greeted by a knowledgeable and informed staff which made check in and out very easy. The pool was clean and temperatures were good. The rooms were quiet and clean and with a convenient bar and restaurant on site.

The hotel was very nice. The suite was great. Some food seemed expensive to me. The pool area was good. The pool was cold and took some time to get used to. My kids had fun and that's all that really mattered.

Beautiful location. Friendly and attentive staff. Love the pool amenities and cozy rooms. The lobby is grand and woodsy. The view of the lake is breathtaking from our room. The location around the lodge is also gorgeous. My mate took a jaunt around Miners Lake and really enjoyed that too. Our family loves this getaway, and will be going back!
