3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

room had a musty smell and you could here adjacent room noise very clearly, giving a very undesired amount of rest. hotel complimentary breakfast was good. price is a bit high to have to deal with noise and motel has a much older feel with a few new accessories to give it a bit of a modern feel. i hope your stay goes better than mine. parking here is also very good, and lot's of resteraunts are near by.

I've stayed hear once before and was happy to see the lovely decor upgrade to the lobby and breakfast area. I was recognized as a diamond member and given a lovely room upgrade. The room had a separate bedroom, living room and bathroom and wet bar between.

There was a sliding glass door to the swimming pool just outside the room, which was lovely, but I had some very noisy neighbors who kept their young son up far too late. I was relieved when they settled in.

Although the room wasn't as up to date as the new decor in the lobby, it was very comfortable and I slept well.

I believe the gal at the front desk told me to use door B which was a mistake and I had to carry my luggage quite far...it should have been door A. But not that big of a deal.

I will stay here again.

This BW is in line with most BW's I have stayed at in the past year.... good quality, good pricing, good breakfast and friendly staff. I spent 16 days touring across four states and the only BW I had any issues with was the one in Rapid City. See my review online for BW Ramkota for more information.

Thank you for a great time in your hotel. The staff could not have been nicer. They welcomed us with open arms. We came to visit Minot State University where our daughter will be attending college. Breakfast was very good and the get together on Fridays were nice and carefree. thank you all.

Most Best Western's are above average. Only problem is when they put you in thier handicap rooms. They seem to be less desirable than a regular room! We don't need one, but on our trip of for a month, we had several of them and they are less than good. Seems like they'd be a little above average for a handicap person!?

We have been staying at the Kelly Inn for many years now, and it has always been a pleasant experience. Occasionally we have had a room that seems a bit worn, but they are always clean and made up nicely. Check-in is usually quite fast, and breakfast is always plentiful and awesome. The pool area is clean, appealing and relaxing. I think the only complaint I might have about my poolside room this time was that the sliding door was cracked and broken, would not slide properly, and the mini fridge was quite smelly. Other than that, it was great.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at the Minot Kelly Inns. I appreciate your kind comments and for letting us know about the door and the mini fridge. We
certainly will correct them. I am glad you enjoyed our breakfast and our beautiful indoor salt water pool. When you visit in the future drop by the Manager's evening reception where we offer
complimentary wine, beer, soda, and appetizers every Mon - Thurs 5pm - 7pm. Again, thank you for sharing with us.

I spent one night at the Best Western Kelly Inn a couple of days ago, it was a girls getaway for shopping and location could not be beaten - directly opposite the Dakota Square Mall, Our room was a good size, two queen beds (such comfortable beds !), nicely decorated. The seating area in the lobby is very trendy and although we did not use the pool it seemed to be nicely maintained. What I was most impressed about with this hotel was the breakfast - it was fabulous, lots to choose from and very fresh - perfect start to the day!
I would highly recommend this hotel and I look forward to my next trip.
