“Accommodated 6 of us in one room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

They have simply appointed, clean rooms and we were very happy that all 6 of us had a bed to sleep in in the same room before our 5 day camping trip. 2 Queens, one single, and a cot. We would highly recommend this motel before your BWCAW trip!

Along with the "funky" pink tiled bathroom, our room had a coffee maker, microwave, and a small fridge, and a king bed!!! Owner was very friendly and accommodating to us with our motorcycle, as impending stormy weather was headed our way and he allowing us to park under the entry way to keep the bike out of the weather. Only drawback is the in-the-wall air conditioners are in the bathrooms and do not adequately cool the actual rooms on the warmer of days (understand that it was uncharacteristically/uncommonly warm when we were there). Will recommend this motel to other friends and fellow motorcyclists, and will stay again when in the area.

Ely has a strip of fairly similar local hotels. I chose this one because it had the best price. Was on the edge of town. Nice size room. Excellent internet access. Staff was very friendly in helping to find a medical clinic and advising on a detour out of town.

This is the best deal up north – when you just need a place to lay your head for a night (or a few…) – simple, but wonderfully CLEAN and very comfortable. Plenty of room for a motel stay – with a microwave and a nice little table w/2 chairs. Convenient location too. The owners do take pride in the property and treat everyone very well. So nice that they have a few rooms designated that allow dogs. Thank you!! I would recommend folks stay here anytime and will be back myself if ever in the BWCA again.

Picked out this place on the fly. Nice little motel with the basic needs met. Pretty decent wi-fi within the room. Perfectly comfortable with pleasant innkeepers. Petting their black lab is included at no extra charge!

Room Tip: All of them are on the ground floor with available parking right in front. I was in one of the front...
