I have stayed here a couple times and the rooms are very clean and modern and just a all around comfortable hotel. They have a very good bar/restaurant on the premises and also have a very good view from room if you are facing the lake.

Stereotypical north woods atmosphere in the lobby with large wooden beams and rustic furnishings. Pool and hot tub were very nice. Restaurant had variety of hearty food with large portions. View from the room was unbeatable with stunning lake and northern lights visible.

We stop here while we are snowmobiling. The food and service are always good. The lodge is decorated in rustic north woods decor and is very cozy. There is plenty of space for our gear. We have dined here at least 10 times and I have never been disappointed.

We stayed at the Grand Ely Lodge February 3rd. We were first timers at the lodge. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They let us check in early because of an afternoon dog sled ride. Our room was lakeside, what a view, complete with log furniture. The lobby was gorgeous with log beams and beautiful fireplace. The restaurant was...

This hotel is a bit pricey but it is the only one with a view and a pool. We were there on the last day of their Blueberry Festival that could be why the price was too high for me. We loved the beautiful view from our private balcony. The atmosphere of the whole hotel has a deep woods country...

This hotel is nice, but nothing special when you take the price into consideration. I wouldn't say there is anything specifically wrong with it. The staff are friendly, and attentive, the rooms are clean, but that is how things are supposed to be. I think the only reason to stay here again is because it is the only property of...
