Certificate of Excellence
Charming, home away from home atmosphere. The only motel in Ely with patio seating. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and courteous service to our customers. Great beds and linens. The motel is within walking distance of three restaurants. Free wi-fi and pets ok. In-room coffee.

The room was clean and comfortable, the price reasonable, and the customer service friendly and helpful. Good bed, good rest, good place to stay. It's an older property, but very convenient. I liked that it didn't have a casino and was a non-smoking facility.More

The staff were extremely friendly and the room was very reasonably priced. It was clean and even though located on the hi way, it was very quiet. A continental breakfast was available at 5 a.m. There was a nice restaurant located across the street.

Response from tajikiev | Reviewed this property |
I don't recall any pet fee for the motel, but if you get a room, you should avoid rooms near the road as there is a grade and the semis are down shifting for the grade which is not good for a light sleeper.
