Nice Place. Love Having a restaurant and bar in the hotel. I miss those days. I wish Holiday Inn would go back to that. Hot tub and pool were great. I had a great time except for one jack a--.

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.

The Grand Ely is great for a family visit. The pool area features a baby pool, regular pool, whirlpool and sauna. There's also a game room/TV lounge area and other amenities. The restaurant and bar on site are very convenient and affordable. They offer a few pet rooms which is nice if you need to bring your fur baby with...

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!

We always stay here when choosing a hotel in Ely. The food and beverage are great and we enjoy the pool and hot tub. Beds are super comfortable. The other standout is the great Wi-Fi, as so many hotels have slower systems.
