Great experience. Easy reservation process, I booked online last minute. The rooms were really nice and clean and the renovated bathrooms were great! Nice and warm in -15 degrees with plenty of hot water. Owners were really friendly and helpful. The Christmas cookies in the office was such a nice touch! Great experience, I highly recommend it.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled as a couple

Thanks for your kind comments, Lauren! It was great to have you as guests and we are glad you were able to enjoy Ely! Despite the cold, it still felt like we were plunked right down in a postcard with the powdery snow gracing the trees, didn't it? :)

We stayed at the "Canoe On Inn" after a BWCA canoe trip, and were very pleased. The "Inn" is just that, it's a small (perhap 9 units ?) family-owned hotel. It's conveniently located on Sheridan Street in Ely, within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. I selected the "Inn" before our canoe trip because of the catchy name. Please note that this is NOT a fancy-schmancy chain hotel, but this is not a problem. Simple is good!, including spotlessly-clean rooms and bathrooms (it passed my wife's test, no easy feat!) and was FAR nicer than the Comfort Suites in Minneapolis we stayed in before our flight the next day. WiFi, very comfortable beds, and convenient parking. An in-room coffee maker was available, as was cable tv. We'll return!

Room Tip: We liked the second floor, but there are no elevators, so that won't work if you're mobility-challenged.

Owners were both very friendly, offered assist with road construction traveling tips. Room was simply but completely furnished for our overnight stay. Right off the main street of Ely; walked from Inn to explore the town. Recommended!
