Hadn't ever stayed in LaQuinta Hotel, and wasn't planning on doing so in Ely, but it turns out the B&B we'd planned on was over-booked and we were the last ones in! The B&B owner recommend the LaQuinta as "new & clean" so we allowed her to call over to see if they had rooms - they had just ONE and promised to hold it for us until we drove across town.
Thank goodness they did! They were turning people away left & right as we registered at 6pm. My advice would be to call ahead yourselves or otherwise make reservations. Its very well situated, right off the Rt50 exit, near several restaurants and casinos, and practically shares a parking lot with a pleasant little, family-owned grocery market.
The hotel must be very new - everything is spotless and tidy. The rooms aren't huge, but the beds were comfortable and it was quiet - except for hallway noise ... ask for a room away from the pool if that noise bothers you.
The indoor pool is medium-sized, but clean and well-stocked with towels. Our evening it was packed with families in town for a BMX event, as was the free breakfast buffet the next morning. But the buffet food was fresh, with a nice variety of cereals, pastries, yogurt, juices and yes, waffles! I recommend the nice, quiet outdoor dining patio just off the main eating area - not too hot yet in the morning - if you are looking to get away from the crowd.
As others have mentioned, the staff was super friendly and helpful. I'd stop here again if I found myself in this neck of the woods come nightfall!
