This was a business trip and the hotel met the requirements. Internet worked well, nice pool area and the staff is helpful. The restaurant is also very good. The bed is comfortable and includes several pillows which is a huge plus! The overall room could use an update which keeps this hotel from an excellent score. I really don't like... More

Located for easy access. Rooms were clean and decorated well. Beds were very comfortable. The room was quiet and we had a very good sleep. No issues with stay. Very pleased. Very nice restaurand connected to the hotel, and they had a broad menu. Pool was a bit small, but the kids enjoyed it.

This motel needs a better heating system , other wise ok. Our room had a very drafty door which the heating system could just keep up to. On the positive side they have very good hamburgers in their very cool restaurant. Cool has in needing more heat.

I found the B.W. Kelly Inn of Yankton adequate and especially enjoyed the availability of a restaurant and the lounge/bar! The trip was in late November so it was really nice to be able to check into the motel and then just wander down the hall to Minerva's Restaurant and, of course, the lounge/bar area.

I’m not even sure where to start as this was SUCH a hit and miss experience. The layout of the hotel/pool is PERFECT for a group. We got pool-side rooms and were able to use the pool area as a commons area, and even set up a food table etc. There was easy access to the room for the bathroom,... More

My family came here for a weekend get together. To be honest there were 40 of us and we took up half the hotel. I heard several complaints from other members in my family that there was mold in their refrigerators... One complained that her room smelled very strongly of fresh paint? My bad experience is when I turned down... More

We stayed here in 2013, and returned for a week in Oct. 2014 to visit family. We requested a first floor king room, away from the pool, with an outside entrance, which we received. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. We ate their daily breakfast, which was fine. Especially enjoyed the free daily paper. We requested... More

Went to Yankton to see the L&C park, found an amazing bike friendly city. Kelly Inn was a pleasant stay and convenient to our travel routes. Having found so many trails etc we plan to return next year, will probably stay at the Kelly Inn again and bike for several days.
