Kelly Inn is middle-of-the-road, the definition of average. Which isn't a bad thing. It was totally clean (my main concern), but nothing over-the-top. The only cleanliness complaint is the maid left a washcloth hanging in our shower from the previous person. With that one exception, carpets, bathroom, furniture were all clean.
Our room was on the third floor and was pretty quiet except for some minor hallway noise. The room had a microwave, mini-fridge and coffeemaker. The hairdryer wouldn't stay on for more than a few minutes at a time before dying, and the free wireless worked less than 25 percent of the time, which was a major disappointment. There is a wired computer with printer in the lobby for printing boarding passes.
Breakfast was free but minimal, with two types of sugary cereal, oatmeal, machine-juice, bagels/biscuits, a bin of yogurts and some frozen sausage patties you could heat up in the microwave. The first day, the coffee machine at breakfast was really watery, but that must have been a blip.
The pool and hot tub are decent-sized and clean, and the fitness room was a plus, although I couldn't get the treadmill to work. The hotel's location is convenient to the interstate and to chain-store shopping, but not particularly close to downtown or the interesting stuff.
Service at the hotel was cordial but not super friendly. I'd stay here again, but only for a better price. We paid $99 through Priceline, but the room was quoted on the hotel's website at $129. It definitely was not worth that.
If you have time in Billings, be sure to drive up to the rimrocks that overlook the city. Beautiful view, especially at sunset!
