Nice clean simple hotel

Posted Oct 27, 2015
Super 8 hotel in Ely is a good place to stay if you are simply looking for a nice, clean, safe environment. Owner operated, owners are onsite and friendly - location is at end of town, quiet area, and everything in Ely is within 5 minutes drive.

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: Great
My experience is that I live several miles from Ely and on my way up I became Ill and had to abort a trip to a family funeral. It happened the same day of the reservation. I tried to cancel and the person I spoke to at Expedia indicated he cancelled the reservation and would send an e-mail confirming. I haven't received one yet. He indicated it was cancelled. So This recommendation is about you.

What we expected.

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: Clean, large tv, very quiet
Cons: More selection for breakfast.
Location: Very easy to find, on the main drag. Not too far from the wolf center or downtown.
Good room. We stayed in room 205, 2nd floor towards the end away from the stairwell. We had a double queen room. Room was well kept, as was rest of hotel. I liked that the bathroom sink was outside of the main bathroom. Makes it easier for the two of us to get ready in the morning. Free breakfast consisted of toast,cinnamon roll, waffles, apples, oatmeal,two types of cold cereal, eggs you could warm up in the microwave, two juice choices and coffee.

Decent hotel for the price.

Posted Jun 12, 2015
Needed a hotel in Ely for the night after leaving the BWCA. This was a decent choice for a reasonable price. Staff was pleasant, property was clean and in good condition. Not a five, or even four star property but we didn't pay 4 star prices either. Clearly refurbished in recent years with new fixtures, carpet, etc. Good choice for before or after a wilderness stay.

Nice hotel at the edge of town

Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: It is easy to find at the end of the main street in Ely. They checked us in quickly and the room was great!
Cons: All was satisfactory.
Location: Because the hotel is at the east end of the main street, we drove to the middle of town and parked. From there it was an easy walk to every place.
The hotel is in good condition with clean rooms and a satisfactory breakfast buffet (love those make your own waffle griddles). The room rate was appropriate for the accommodations - especially when you figure in breakfast. We would stay there again.

Mediocre at Best. Poor Value.

Posted May 24, 2015
Pros: The room was clean and the TV was up to date and worked well.
The hotel was a poor value considering, with tax, it was nearly $100 per night. It had a cheap appearance with things like Save our Planet labels pasted to the mirror and the hallway stinking of a very strong odor of ethnic cuisine such as curry and garlic. The "free" breakfast was poorly stocked and there were only two tables in the breakfast area. The manager was cordial but nothing more. The hotel did, however, seem clean and the room had a nice flat screen TV. Next time I'm in Ely, I'll definitely be staying elsewhere. This was pretty much the last time I'll stay in any Super 8. I can remember when staying at a Super 8 was a pleasant experience and the quality was consistent from one hotel to the next. Unfortunately, those days are gone.

Location: Lots to do in Ely.
Lousy (free) breakfast. Not worth it, even free. Bed was comfortable. Staff friendly.
