It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I got a single room, which was ok, but the bathroom was tiny. I could barely move there. I didn't really like that the Wi-Fi had no password because this meand it's even more insecure. The room was also connected to the owner's rooms, i.e., the door was looked, but from the... More

Bell's Motor Lodge was easy to find, clean and affordable! I will definitely be staying here if I'm ever in Spearfish again! Employees were friendly and the room was clean (there was even a refrigerator!).

Very clean room with small bathroom. Easy access to Wifi. Nice clean pool to relax at! Very close to many restaurants and walking distance to small downtown area! Loved that the Green Bean coffee house was next door! Yummy green tea and scones!

We are on a long road trip and we look for motor lodges with easy access to our room. This was perfect for us. The owners were friendly and the rooms were clean. The bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. It is conveniently located close to the beautiful Spearfish Canyon. The only negative was the air conditioner. It... More

I was traveling with my 5 year old and my retired parents. Pretty comfortable beds, we had a nice fridge, the central air worked well. The bathroom was very small and had a stand up shower, but the manager told me about it before I booked it. The pool was warm & clean, the little playset was in good condition.... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 days while riding our motorcycle in the Black Hills. We were both impressed with the cleanliness and the well maintained property. The owner was exceptionally nice and helpful. Every time I had a question or a need he went out of his way to accommodate us. This is a good value for a... More

This was our first night of a long road trip and my husband, grandson and I were very pleased with what we found at Bell's. Scott was so kind when I had to change my reservation, I had booked the wrong date! We paid $67 for a Saturday night in June for a room with 2 full sized beds (AAA... More

My husband and I made a two day drive from Missouri to North Idaho and just needed a place to sleep for a few hours along the way. For this purpose, Bell's was ideal. The location is good - right off the "main" highway so it's very easy to find. The bed was easily the most comfortable motel bed I've... More

No breakfast and you have to go to the office for coffee or next door to buy it, that would be the only thing s that would be anywhere close to complaints. Super clean, quiet and very affordable. Would definitely stay here again. You deal directly with the owner which was a very good experience.
