Adventure INN: Ely's most friendly place to stay!
Nice room; very clean. Owners VERY friendly, helpful and gracious, as was the rest of the staff. Smallish (20 some rooms) place, rustic looking exterior that fit in with the northwoods theme! Loved it !! Have a computer in the office for guest use. Coffee and pastries in the a.m. & fresh (unlike some of the chains!). Highly recommend it!!!
You can visit the wolves at their park or the bears at theirs. Several good restaurants even tho a small town. A zillion tv channels!
Very pet friendly.
Super friendly owners/staff. They do not accept Discover, however. They recycle! Have bins for paper(s), cans & bottles.

Silver Rapids Lodge: False Advertising
We stayed in the "motel" section. Probably new in the 1960s and patched over since then. Door lock really didn't work, mattresses were 20+ years old, saggy, with springs poking you. Mold in the bathroom. Last straw was the deer tick found on our son. We weren't in the woods yet! If it had been $80/night it would have been too much, but for the price we paid you could have stayed at a REAL resort.
I will not recommend this hotel and will tell everyone I know to stay away!

Silver Rapids Lodge: $196 overpriced "hell hole" cabin
Our family just returned from our first visit to Minnesota. We were way overcharged ($196 with tax for one night in a small cabin near a noisy road & bridge)The cabin must have been built in the early 1900 with the same bedding. I requested another cabin after a sleepless night in beds with springs popping out, etc. The plumbing backed up while taking a shower, no air-conditioning, towels, housekeeping/room service, outlets for blowdryers, phones, tv, and the sofa bed was dirty and broken. In the morning I asked for better accomodations. We were offered another cabin for $40 more. When I opened the door I took in a heavy wiff of mold and said no thanks. Staff appologized and explained they had just purchased the place and had a lot of work to do. I suggested they shut their doors until renovation was complete. Their prices and cabins do not live up to thier website at all. It was terribly overpriced!!! We should have known when they insisted we pay for the mandatory second night stay in advance. We will NEVER ever stay there again. After we checked out, we visited the Grand Ely Lodge for lunch and wished we had stayed there. It is everything we were expecting out of Silver Rapids Lodge. If we come back to Ely again, we will stay at the Grand Ely Lodge. As far as restaurants go, the best were Cranberry's, Sir G's, The Chocolate Moose and The Grand Ely Lodge.
We enjoyed the annual (July ) Blueberry Festival.
The best accomodations we experienced in Minnesota were the Super 8 in Eveleth (great service, clean, comfortable, friendly, great continental breakfast, pool, hot tub and sauna and the best price!!!!!!) and the Grand Lodge and Water Park in Bloomington (cost $159 per night for clean, new and very comfortable accomodations for a family of 4, which included complimentary 2 day waterslide passes for all four of us as well as shuttle service to Mall of America and the MSP airport). The Silver Rapids Lodge cost more than the best hotels we stayed in - it's a crime!

The best outfitter I've found...
The best outfitter I've found in Ely is
45$ per person per day (includes food, tent, canoe...etc)
Great setup, reasonable prices, wonderfully packaged meals, and the Hottest steam room i've ever been in (for when you return from a week away from running water)
