We stayed at the Kelly Inn when we went up to North Dakota for a family wedding. The service & people there were extremely nice, the beds & pillows were phenomenal. Also, the wedding reception was held at the hotel. The food they provided for the reception was beyond excellent and the servers working the reception would bend over backwards... More

The hotel dates from the 1960s and despite some cosmetic updates, it shows its age. It has been added on to more than once so has a rather rambling floor plan. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and it is close to the capitol.The sound proofing could be better, but fortunately the people next door were... More

Couldn't have been better. Clean room and great food. We have stayed here before and will again anytime we are in Bismarck. This is a great motel for families as the pool is clean and not crowded. A great stay for the price.

There was a time when Kelly Inn Bismarck was a place that everyone wanted to stay, and when you told someone that that was your hotel, their comment was always, "Nice." Not so much anymore. From the minute you walk into the hotel to check in, the place feels old, outdated, and unwelcoming. The physical facilities are adequate but very,... More

Super friendly staff. Rooms could use some updating but the bed was very comfortable. Did not eat in the restaurant because it was closed for 4th of July. Very quiet room and air conditioner worked great. Would definitely stay again.

Rooms are outdated and in need of repair/updating. Handicap room was roomy enough, however all the fixtures (sink and shower) leaked. Other than the outlets in the bathroom, there are only two electrical outlets in the entire room, and the light fixtures are plugged into half of the available outlets. While the extra deep mattresses may be desired by some,... More
