The Grand Central Motel is owned by Hotel Nevada. While running this motel the owners did do some very nice upgrades. Most rooms were painted and new carpet installed. T.V's were upgraded and new linen. The outside was painted and upgraded. The property was well maintained as well as clean fresh rooms. Keep in mind Ely is an old town... More

I enjoyed lodging at Grand Central Motel for its unique cleanliness, and friendly service. The manager went beyond her call to duty in pleasing me on my request for accommodations while I stayed there.

We are staying at The Grand Cental for a few months. First I want to commend the manager, Sherrie. Sherrie does everything possible for her guest. Sherrie always refers places to go and see. The Nevada Motel has the best breakfast for a very reasonable price. True this is a older hotel but the rooms are very clean. Each room... More

We recently stayed a night at this motel based on reviews on this site. Major disappointment. Rooms were clean enough but had mismatched furniture, no lighting, two refrigerators that didn't work and a tiny TV (that part is OK with me!). The lock on the door was a simple handle lock, not secure. The sink in the bathroom was so... More

My family and I moved from Vegas to Ely for a job opportunity...we first stayed at the white pine motel which was disgusting and not in suitable conditions to stay in. Someone recommended The Grand Central to us and not only was it more affordable but it was clean and the house keeper is always on the up keep. Cable,... More

This place is a little diamond in the rough. Friendly, clean and very inexpensive, the Grand Central was a GREAT place to stay. I was told that they were sold several months ago and the new owners were making a lot of improvements. It's true! The room I had was spacious and clean. It had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee... More

Dirtiest hotel I've ever seen. We aren't beyond staying in a basic room but our Nonsmoking room smelled so smoky it was hard to breathe! Nothing crawling that I could see but looked like possible insect carcasses on mattress. Immediately checked out and went to Ramadan. Guy at desk did give us back our money.

After a long day of driving, we needed a place to sleep and shower. We started calling hotels/motels 2-3 hours before we arrived. This place was the only place that had a vacancy. It is an old motor hotel and the rooms have not been updated. No amenities. Did have A/C, but I had to turn it off because it... More
