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 From the minute you walk into the hotel to check in, the place feels old, outdated, and unwelcoming.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Rooms are outdated and in need of repair/updating.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

We stayed here over the weekend of March 15th...what a mistake. I booked our room through their website for three persons. We are a family of three - my wife and I, along with our 12 year old son. The options presented at booking were a one king room or a one queen room. Since I was being honest and... More

I was placed here by the business I was working for. I asked for a quiet room and got one facing the busy street! First, ask for a room far from the very busy street. You will hear every bad car muffler as you are trying to sleep. The room is nice enough. Wifi works well. Lighting is dim and... More

I would like to thank you for your review and feedback on our property. We always take our guest's concerns seriously and try to learn from them. We have recently taken down the wall vinyl in all of our first floor rooms and painted, which should help with some of the lighting issues. We have also done some renovating and... More

walls are paper thin, doors do not open and stick, drunk party in hall for 1/2 hour due to door, progressed into next room and drove us out by 1:30 No help from front desk or security, lame excuse that they were not aware of the noise. Odd that they did admit to helping the group with the stuck door.... More

We stayed here because of the price, and it was fine. Our room was clean and quiet, we had no problems. Our faucet in the bathroom was due to be replaced but did not bother us. The heater easily cooked our room, we had to turn it off and crack the window. The bed was soft and comfortable, but only... More

My husband and I, along with our dog, stayed here as we passed through on a road trip. We chose this hotel because they had a bar & it was New Year's Eve. The room was clean, the rate reasonable, the bed comfortable. The only disappointment was that the bar closed before 11:00 pm. The guy at the front desk... More
