Only stayed one night at Bell's, but it was a great stay. This property is definitely dated, but it is well maintained and very clean, plus the price is a great value. The owner was very knowledgable about the area and gave us some tips on places to eat, as well as directions to Devil's bathtub. We will stay here... More

We stopped here for 1 night while we were hiking in the Black Hills. Our room was small but very clean and the owner was very nice. He had great suggestions for some hiking areas and a great restaurant in town. We would stay here again with out a doubt.

Its a motor lodge, so don't expect luxury. But our rooms were very clean with an updated bathroom. It was perfect for our needs. It has a pool that is advertised as 82F, however it was more like 74F. Would stay again.

This motel was rad. Scott at the front desk welcomed us late at night with a warm smile and a cozy/clean/affordable room. The motel is better than most best cheap chain motels and has a hip old school vibe to it. Super nice place to call home for the night and leaves your wallet full for great breakfast down the...

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
