We recently stayed at Grand Ely Lodge with our 3 kids and our dog. We had a wonderful experience at the resort. It's in a great location, right on a beautiful lake and close to town. The staff was extremely kind and welcoming when we arrived. They were more than helpful and accommodating the entire time that we were there. We ate a few times right at the restaurant in the lodge and the food was great! Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this resort to anyone.

What a wonderful place! I didn't even know this place existed. Definitely NOT what you would expect in the the north woods of Minnesota. We had a wonderful, clean room. The pool was a little chilly for my preferences, but the hot tub was the perfect temp. The only disappointment was our room was directly under the bar. We could hear footsteps above us until well past 11pm.

Dear acousticsix,

Thank you for taking the time to submit your review. We appreciate your business.

It is good to hear that you found our place to be wonderful. I do apologize for the late night footsteps above your room and for the pool being a little chilly for your preferences, but glad the hot tub was the perfect temp.

We hope to see you again on your next trip to our area!

This northwoods-themed resort hotel is a fine choice for visitors to Ely. It is a full-service hotel, with in-house restaurant and snack bar. Rooms on the north side of the hotel overlook Shagawa Lake. The hotel is located on a side road several blocks from the center of Ely, so there is no traffic noise. (but it is at least 1/4 mile walk to town and other restaurants and services). Rooms are quite spacious, furnished in an attractive northwoods decor. Windows open; room has refrigerator & microwave, wi-fi, sofa, desk, good lighting and full length mirror. Room was clean in good condition.

Excellent stay! Zero complaints! Yes, it is rustic, lodge decor, but it is not old and worn. Our room was nicely appointed, roomy and very clean. This was our first stay in Ely, and we would come again!
