We know the small things really count when traveling
We stayed at Adventure Inn in a King Jacuzzi room. The room was clean, the jacuzzi was heavenly, and Mark who checked us in was friendly and helpful! He even walked us right to our room. The bed was comfy! The shower was hot and had great pressure. We would definitely recommend! Ruth from Duluth, MN

We pride ourselves on accommodating all travelers
We were a large group and were thrilled to find a nice place to stay that could give us the space we needed. The Adventure Inn booked us one room with three queen beds and a kitchen suite with two bedrooms. Both units were clean, well appointed, and comfortable. We enjoyed the great outdoor space to sit and relax, surrounded by incredible flowers...definitely a treat. The front desk was very welcoming and made us feel at home. I will come back!

We love the Adventure Inn! We just returned from at least our 10th stay at the Adventure Inn! The owners and staff are always exceptionally warm and welcoming. The rooms are fabulous. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. The bathrooms are beautiful, with great showers. We love the attention to sustainability. They have excellent coffee and delicious pastries every morning. Really, nothing could be better. We will return again and again, whenever we have an opportunity to visit Ely.
