“Great Value”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed for 3 days while riding our motorcycle in the Black Hills. We were both impressed with the cleanliness and the well maintained property. The owner was exceptionally nice and helpful. Every time I had a question or a need he went out of his way to accommodate us. This is a good value for a drive up motel. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed July 2014

This was our first night of a long road trip and my husband, grandson and I were very pleased with what we found at Bell's. Scott was so kind when I had to change my reservation, I had booked the wrong date! We paid $67 for a Saturday night in June for a room with 2 full sized beds (AAA discount). Our room was clean as can be and my grandson was thrilled to have a pool to play in at the end of a long day in the car.

My husband and I made a two day drive from Missouri to North Idaho and just needed a place to sleep for a few hours along the way. For this purpose, Bell's was ideal. The location is good - right off the "main" highway so it's very easy to find. The bed was easily the most comfortable motel bed I've ever experienced. While the room was tiny, it was perfectly clean and Scott (the owner?) was very helpful in accommodating our late check-in; however, no key was left in our room so we could not leave again without leaving the room unlocked. For us, this was no problem since we were just there to sleep but in other circumstances it could have been awkward. The A/C was on in the room when we arrived so it was already cool and comfortable.

The hot water was limited -- it was enough for a full shower, but only barely. The room we were in was not soundproof at all. Ok for us since we were up and leaving early but others may have a problem with this. I was disappointed not to find a coffee maker in the room since the office doesn't open until 8am so we had to go to the gas station for coffee. All in all though, for the cost, it was very worthwhile.

No breakfast and you have to go to the office for coffee or next door to buy it, that would be the only thing s that would be anywhere close to complaints. Super clean, quiet and very affordable. Would definitely stay here again. You deal directly with the owner which was a very good experience.

I researched this motel on TripAdvisor. It got very good reviews and the motel lived up to the reviews'. Scott the owner is very helpful with directions and advice on what to see and good places to eat. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Rates are very reasonable. You can walk to the historic downtown. If I come thru this area I will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Just ask the owners

Stayed one night after a great day of riding in the Black Hills. Older single story motel was clean but needs updating. Pool was nice and the motel is a short walk to downtown. We booked a number of rooms as a group but were not located next to each other as there are two buildings.

Scott S, Owner at Bell's Motor Lodge Motel, responded to this review, 22 November 2013
We are continually updating beds, carpet, bathroom fixtures, and paint to lift the quality of our motel. Admittedly, we need to do more to the exterior of the buildings. Our last exterior update was new storm windows last year.
