I have to admit I was crazed when my husband told me how much it was for one night to stay here. I was glad they had a restaurant and bar on site because I hate having to get delivery or get back out after we FINALLY finished for the day. Walking to "Manerva's we discovered that there also was... More

It felt outdated but well kept. My biggest issue was getting help. The front desk, bar, and restaurant never had enough help and it was hard to get service. I ate in the restaurant 2 nights and 1 morning. The breakfast was not my style. I would not stay here again.

From the moment I arranged to stay here with a call from Texas I felt instantly at home (Thanks, Matt!)

Stayed only 1 night for business. Didn't spend much time in the room, but when I was ready to turn in for the night I saw a mouse in the bathroom. It was really late and I had to pack up everything to move rooms as I was freaking out. The front desk was very accommodating and moved me to... More

Good location and decent accommodations. Clean and friendly. Good to see places like this traveling cross country. Their beds for this chain of hotels are very comfy. I was skepical at first because of the dark entrance and it shared a restaurant. Good place!

I was driving across the country, and thought I'd just crash for a few hours at a rest area. There are some bloody amazing rest areas in North Dakota; they even have WiFi! If you park late at night, say midnight or so, you'll see the parking lot full of 18-wheelers and a few committed folks in cars who are... More

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.
