Mom and Pop feeling with this well established building. Scott does his best to make your stay pleasant. He is always updating the rooms with fixtures and mattresses. The rooms are comfortable. It's not the Ritz but for the money it will do fine. You don't find these prices anymore and to have a nice place to rest with a... More

It is an old motel but they have done a good job of trying to update and cram as many amenities as they can into the small rooms. The price is great and its right at the end of the main street in Spearfish. It is also right next door to one of the best coffee shops in town, I... More

For the price, this place is amazing. The rooms are basic but clean. We arrived in a snow storm and they were cozy, warm and the internet and TV worked. The best part though was the friendly owner who gave us fantastic tips and directions to some beautiful spots and good places to eat (which isn't easy in this part... More

We stayed here at the start of our South Dakota Adventure. We were put 2 doors down from the office. We slept ok, but in the morning we were awaken by the room next door getting ready, we could hear every thing they were doing and saying. The place was not full it would have been nice not to be...

This clean, no frills motel cost just $52 a night. Rooms have AC, a fridge and microwave, tv and newly refurbished bathrooms. It's an easy walk into town for dinner and there's a good coffee shop/diner, The Green Bean, next door for breakfast. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful too.

This is an older motel that is very well kept. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom is small but adequate. Water pressure was good and hot water readily available. The room had a small refrigerator with a separate freezer compartment that allowed us to re freeze quart sized jugs of water for our ice chest.... More

My family and I have stayed at Bells Motor Lodge twice this summer. The price is right! The motel is a bit dated, but is always very clean and well taken care of, not to mention right downtown in the heart of beautiful Spearfish. Scott, the owner, is very friendly and accomodating and always has a smile on his face.... More

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!).
