I have been here before and still like the place. It is just time for some upgrade. Flat screen tv's would make the room feel bigger. New chair, mattress, oh heck everything except bathroom sink. Still need to keep the 50's look. The pool is great after a hot July day in Spearfish Staff is still the same and great.... More

My husband and I were very impressed with how neat and clean this motel was. Loved the warm feeling of the knotty pine paneling. Owner not only suggested places to eat/visit, but provided a map and circled locations. In room we found a binder listing information on motel and area. Never would find this detailed information from a motel chain!... More

Had a chance to stay at bills in Spearfish and it was a vintage trip to the 1950s. I had been to the Black Hills small child and we stayed at the house just like this so I wanted to remove some of that. The Hotel is very very clean and the staff at check-in was awesome. The room I... More

This was a fantastic place to stay in Spearfish! The room was practical and very clean and the pool was very nice. Yes, the room was a little dark with the paneling, but the bathroom was very bright and got as clean and comfortable as the room was, I didn't mind! We would absolutely stay here again!

Very clean place to stay. Our room had an updated bathroom, a refrigerator and microwave. Staff was friendly. The pool was clean and refreshing on the hot summer day. Very affordable and close to downtown. Will definitely stay again.

This is not your typical chain motel. Much more like something from the 60s. Or perhaps 50s - my sister and I disagreed on the decade! That said, the room was comfortable and roomy, with a nice seating area where we brought our Jimmy John sandwiches for dinner after a long day on the road.... Beds were comfortable, the room...

Bell's is a super cute, real live 1950s motor lodge. The room was clean and the bed was great. Scott was really nice. It was quiet and extremely affordable. Downtown Spearfish is about 3 minutes away and the Spearfish Canyon Scenic By-way is about 5 minutes away. It is also close to Deadwood, Lead, Sturgis, and Devil's Tower. If you... More

We stayed here in 2009 previously and decided to repeat a visit. Economical stay. The WiFi signal is weak from some rooms so you might need to stand outside to obtain. Staff friendly. Rooms clean and comfortable. Some rooms allow smoking/pets. The pool while small is refreshing on a hot day. Except for the WiFi issue, another great stay.

I loved this place! The A/C left a bit to be desired on a 97 degree day, but it's so old school and fun. It's super easy to find as it's off the main drag on your way to Spearfish Canyon. This was a short drive to the Devil's Bathtub as well, so a win/win.

We booked through hotels.com, got a good rate for 2 adults and 6 kids. Super nice owner checked us in. The room had 2 queen beds and sleeper sofa. Its an older hotel, so some fixtures look worn. He gave us 2 air mattresses at no extra charge. It was really tight with all of us, so only room for... More
