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.

Scott the owner is very helpful with directions and advice on what to see and good places to eat. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Rates are very reasonable. You can walk to the historic downtown. If I come thru... More

Stayed one night after a great day of riding in the Black Hills. Older single story motel was clean but needs updating. Pool was nice and the motel is a short walk to downtown. We booked a number of rooms as a group but were not located next to each other as there are two buildings.

We are continually updating beds, carpet, bathroom fixtures, and paint to lift the quality of our motel. Admittedly, we need to do more to the exterior of the buildings. Our last exterior update was new storm windows last year. More

We stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised at the great value, given the very inexpensive price! Scott was very friendly and helpful, and suggested that we park our U-Haul truck on the side street, which was very convenient. The room was spartan but clean. Do remember to bring your own hairdryer, though. Scott also suggested places to... More

Scott S, Owner at Bell's Motor Lodge Motel, responded to this review

When you stay at a mom and pop motel, you avoid paying for two big expenses at a motel/hotel. One is franchise fees and associated costs. The second is for high interest, insurance, and property taxes associated with a high capital cost facility. Ours is a basic, one-story, older motel that we take pride in keeping clean and comfortable...and affordable.... More

We have installed four wi fi signal sources in an effort to make the signal strong in each room. If your signal is weak, please do not hesitate to contact the attendant so we can reset that particular router. Thanks. More
