          Don't let the outside fool you. This place has a few years on it, but the rooms are clean and modern. Good location in town. Lots of things to do in the area. Many good restaurants to choose from. A great value.

          We had read reviews of this small motel and the reviews were right on. Our room was immaculate and roomy. There is WIFI and a good sized television with cable. The microwave and refrigerator were the normal hotel room size, and the beds were comfortable.

          Stayed for a short get away and picked Motel Ely because of their good reviews. Their rooms were as clean as advertised and we had a great nights sleep. Rooms are retro and we like that! Thanks for. A great stay.
