Adventure Inn, the Best place to stay in Ely, including my own Mother's, who lives in Ely. Mark and Sue, 2nd to none, hands down the best hospitality we have ever seen. God bless Mark & Sue Edgington! :)

Adventure Inn is family owned hotel a short walk from the centre of Ely. Parking was easy and the reception staff helpful. My room was large with a comfortable bed, big TV and nice bathroom. Everything was clean. The owner Sue was really helpful with advice about town and was a very genuine person. I would definitely recommend it.

We were looking for an inexpensive but comfortable place to stay within walking distance of restaurants and shops. We found all of that in the new section of the Adventure Inn. The room had a microwave and small fridge which were nice touches. The bed was comfortable enough and the room clean enough. Fresh morning coffee and pastries served in the lobby were good. The downside to our stay was the thin walls. We could hear every sneeze, cough, and other "lifestyle" sound from the room next door. Definitely could have done without that!

Sueedgington, Owner at Adventure Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 19 March 2012

I am sorry that you had a noisy weekend. Unfortunately, we had a Hockey Tournament in Ely that weekend and they were very noisy, loud guests. I had tried to put them in rooms in the back building and keep the group together, but a few did spill into the new building. Upon check in, they were all given notice about quiet time and that we are a family run Inn.
I am sorry they disturbed your peace. The new building's walls have been designed to keep noise at a minimum. this is the first time I have heard of a problem with sound traveling in our new building, so I must
take responsibility for allowing the team to stay near your room. We try hard to make sure each guest has a comfortable stay, and we do pride ourselves on our customer service and our sustainable practices.

Having stayed in many of the hotels in Ely Minnesota, Adventure Inn is one of the best. With ample parking, very clean rooms, fresh coffee and scones ( best I have had) or apple turnovers this is the place to stay.

Very clean, good location, owners are very involved and accommodating - and we appreciate their commitment to be "green" as well. We hope to stay there each year on our annual visits to Ely!

Room Tip: New building if available!
