Not recommended!

The motel is located on a main street & very noisy. We had requested a non-smoking room & got a very smelly smoking room. The staff was very accommodating & moved us to another room. The rooms are old & small, but clean. We would not stay there again!

Quaint and friendly

We found the motel good for the price. The staff was helpful and fun.The breakfast had good variety but nothing fancy. Some mechanical issues like dripping faucet and noisy AC unit but beds were comfortable.

nice hotel in a quiet town

The room did have a bit of a cleaning solution odor when we arrived so we left the door open for a few minutes. After that it was fine. Clean and a pretty good breakfast.

Clean and quiet, but not much sleep.

We liked the fact this was a "local" hotel, the price was very reasonable, and they had a continental breakfast. We stopped here to see some of Ely's character along our way to northern Nevada. The fact that the queen mattress was on a double foundation made sleeping difficult, and the bed had no mattress cover just the fitted sheet in a double size. There was no sheet under us by the middle of the night. The manager did say that she would correct this, when I mentioned it to her the following morning. Overall I'd stay here again, just check the mattress before settling in.

Inexpensive place to sleep

Half way to Riverside California. An inexpensive place to sleep the night. I thought the staff was friendly. You get what you pay for with respect to the rooms. The walls were recently painted and the room was fairly clean. We had a broken chair at the desk in our room and the television is viewable but most channels had poor picture. Over all it was fine for what we paid.
