Because of intense demand for housing in the Ely area and very limited availability, the Ely tournament committee has set up room blocks at three area hotels for the upcoming state tournament. The rooms have been set aside for parents, fans and others coming to Ely for the tournament.
Room blocks are in place at the following hotels:
• Fortune Bay Resort and Casino, Tower, (800) 992-7529 or (218) 753-6400, rooms set
aside for July 27, 28 and 29 (Wednesday through Friday) under
"Legion state tournament parents block." These rooms are being held only until 5 pm on Monday July 25.
• Coates Plaza Hotel, Virginia, (218) 749-1000, rooms set aside for
July 27, 28 and 29 (Wednesday through Friday) under "State Legion Baseball Tournament Block." As of Sunday night, there were at least 12 rooms still available in the block plus additional rooms available outside the block.
• Super 8 Motel, Eveleth, (218) 744-1661, rooms set aside for July 27
and 28 (Wednesday and Thursday) under "Legion state tournament
parents block." This facility would not block rooms for Friday the 29th.
In Ely, there is very limited if any availability (some places with one or two rooms), but there are many places within an hour drive of Ely with rooms still available.
