          We were pleasantly surprised with Motel Ely. Great location, easy check in. Our room was super clean! Loved the flowers outside of the rooms! Only downside were small pillows. This would be our go-to hotel on a return visit to Ely.

          Thanks Simone for your stay and for the nice review :) As always when someone posts a review and mentions the clean rooms we let our housekeepers know! Next time, feel free to call for additional pillows! We have a few options :)
