Best budget hotel located on edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe area in the Superior National Forest the Comfort Plus is a clean, quiet hotel to begin and end your day. We are a value priced hotel with emphasis on value. Our well-appointed rooms provide coffee makers, microwaves and refrigerators and we provide a free breakfast, available 6:00-9:00AM, each day.
As you plan your stay in Ely make sure you schedule time to visit the International Wolf Center and the North American Bear Center, both within a 10 minute drive of our hotel. No trip to this beautiful part of the country would be complete without time on the water. Whether you are fishing, kayaking, or canoeing your choice of waterways is unlimited. A quick 15 minute drive will take you to Kawishiwi Falls Trails, a 1.5 mile round trip hike with incredible views and the chance to spot some local wildlife. Visit the Dorothy Molter Museum (affectionately known as the hospitable Root Beer Lady) and learn about the woman who was a long term resident of Ely who blazed her own trail.
When you are ready for a hearty meal, Ely offers something for every appetite. Gator’s Grilled Cheese Emporium is a local favorite and the Ely Steak House is just down the road. Before you head out for the days’ adventure stop by the Front Porch Coffee & Tea Co and pick up a latte and a breakfast burrito to go.
At the end of a busy day soaking in the great outdoors, come back to your comfortable room at our smoke-free property. We look forward to serving you.
