Very pleased with this motel. Everything was clean and in working order. Shower was very nice. The folks at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was disappointing with only prepackaged pastries. We would stay here again if in Ely.More

Excellent place to stay with a friendly and helpful staff and views of the mountains. The room was quiet which is difficult to come by these days. The upstairs room had a balcony from which you could relax and enjoy the scenery.More

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.
