This is the best of the bunch, we did check a lot of them in the area and we went for this one, it' s very clean, the room is very small but you are not in Ely to stay in your room , the wi-fi was so so, the breakfast was good but the best was the rate and...

After trying to find a place in Ely and all others being sold out or having only one bed we found the Main Motel. It is a bit old, the walls could use some paint but I am not staying at the hotel for the "walls". The staff was awesome, the beds were comfortable, the room was clean, the water...

The room was decent, but not as nice as we expected from pictures and previous reviews. First off, no wifi. The use DSL wired into the room. The outside looks like a dump and the person checking us in was scary. While lower priced than sum in the same market, I wouldn't say the price fit the experience.

Clean. Doesn't smell bad. Across the street from fun diner. Just a place to spend the night when you have had a long drive day. No amenities. Bring shampoo etc. Be sure to call for directions as your GPS information is inaccurate.

OK, first off there isn't much in Ely, NV. We're only there as a driving-on-thru. For 2x as much money you could stay at an overpriced Best Western down the street that is, quite frankly, as unattractive looking as this place. This isn't a chain, and the family who runs it seem quite argumentative (toward each other - not the...

The Main Motel doesn't look like much on the outside, but our room was updated and quite comfortable. Lots of room on the sink counter, and the air conditioning was new, modern, and fairly quiet. The staff was extremely helpful with a booking problem, and was very accomodating to our needs. Considering that this is Ely, and there is a...

I was unable to pull safely into the parking lot due to people sitting in the spots with unsupervised animals and kids. The clerks were unconcerned with the situation and did not attempt to correct the problem. The customer service was nonexistent and the quality of the motel was unsatisfactory. Awful stay!

Friendly staff - the owners loved our dog. Convenient location. Breakfast was free, but poor quality. No fruit and a moldy bagel. The room was fine and clean but nothing special. I would not stay here again, but if I had to, it wouldn't be tge end of the world.

Great value, quite clean, friendly staff & spacious room. Not a luxury place, but completely fine & a great deal in good location. Have stayed here twice now on trips thru Ely. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

I pass through Ely and I've been searching for a motel that is not too pricey but is adequate. The Main Motel does it for me. I received a single room for $59 after tax. It was spacious with fridge, micro, alarm clock, coffee maker. The room was very clean. The internet is both ethernet and wi-fi. The ethernet was...
