“Good for pets and people”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

When my husband and I drive to Fargo we normally take our dog with us. Finding a nice hotel that has accommodations to suit our needs and our Labrador Retriever’s can sometimes be a challenge. We normally stay 2 or 3 nights and like the fact that all the rooms have microwave’s, good size fridges and tiny coffee makers-just to get you by. The hotel has a morning buffet and also offers cookies and lemonade around noon during the week. We always request a walk out room-it’s easiest with the dog, and if it’s a shopping weekend-it’s easy to carry bags straight into the room. The décor is more of a wilderness theme-but we like it and it’s always very clean. There are still two very large fields within walking distance that we let our dog ‘off leash’ in. It’s also just off a major road and close to all shopping and it’s very easy to get to Moorhead from. Recommend this hotel if you are looking for just one night or a several, and if you have a dog or don’t.

Room Tip: If you have a pet-request a walk out room.

From the welcoming bears peeking in windows and standing around to being in the pool area children would enjoy staying here as would their parents. The property was clean and comfortable and morning breakfast wasn't bad.

We've stayed here numerous times in the past 10 years, it's been a consistent performer. For families with kids, the pool area is a nice diversion. For Canucks in town for shopping, it's blocks from the mall, Happy Harry's, restaurants, the freeways, etc..

Breakfast selection is pretty average: waffles, cereal, eggs, biscuits and gravy, but their coffee is awful (this however is the standard NoDak/Minnesota Lutheran approved coffee - half the beans, twice the water, lol). If you want real Java, you'll need to find the nearby Caribou in Herbergers or just up the road on 13th.

Beds are comfy, pillows are decent. This trip we were a little nervous about noise as our room was directly across from the elevator, but we literally did not hear ANY elevator noise after dark. Not many hotels I can say that about.

Staff has always been friendly and attentive, have never had issues with the heating/cooling systems as others mentioned. It's our standard go-to place when we head to Fargo for family weekends.

Room Tip: Third floor wings are all good choices. Elevator is actually quite quiet, so don't worry about...

The desk clerks were great, the rooms were clean and nice. Your there to sleep, the sleep was terrible. The room heater was right next to the bed and when the fan came on it blue cool air on you and the fan was so loud you could not sleep. Since I was in North Dakota I had left the heat on. At breakfast the next morning I sat at a table with another young man, who said he had the same problem, but that he had noted it the night before and shut off the heat and covered up real good. They need to fix that problem before I go back!!

Room Tip: shut off your heat before trying to sleep!!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel we appreciate hearing from our guests. I can assure our hotel does not have heating and cooling units that are any different than other hotels in this area. We offer many different room types with different configurations and amenities. I would suggest requesting a suite or a room with two queen beds for future stays. Again thank you for your comments.

I just did a quick overnight for business and stayed here less than 10 hours, but it is a nice hotel for the price. The cabin decor may be a little over the top if you are not into that kind of feel, but rooms are nice size and well furnished. Fridge and micro would be a plus if you were staying awhile. Swimming pool/mini-water park looked perfect for smaller children. Breakfast a bit above average in terms of selection. Quality was typical budget hotel. My only real complaint was the comforter was way lumpy.

Room Tip: First floor rooms have direct door to parking lot. Would be good for smokers.

I stay here on pretty much a weekly basis for work, and this hotel is great. It's easily accessible on the main throughfare to the highway, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and most importantly for me they are welcoming to well-behaved dogs (and owners).

When I was first assigned this job I was concerned about having to travel from far away to Fargo, and I couldn't bear to leave my dog behind. My girl is a well-behaved, petite Doberman, but a lot of hotels exclude larger dogs from staying there. Fortunately the BW Kelly Inn allows dogs of all sorts, and we've had a safe, clean, comfortable exprience there.

I've also stayed at other Fargo hotels, and I prefer the BW Kelly Inn over all of them. It also helps that they're right next to a bunch of great restaurants, and you only have to walk 100 feet or less to get to Johnny Carlino's Italian restaurant. The fitness center is good, and clean (much larger than some I've seen), and they have a little business center where you can print out documents and access the Internet if you don't have your own computer. And I like the lounge - it's rustic like a lodge, and very comfortable for the free breakfast and for lounging in general. They also have a really large and nice pool for those who have kiddies that need to burn off some energy.

Room Tip: Let them know if you have a dog before you arrive, and they will put you in a room on the 1st floor...

Stayed here for a quick night on the way thru Fargo. Room was very good. Clean, quiet, comfortable. Continental breakfast was decent in the morning. Overall would not hesitate to return.
