We were lucky enough to spend 4 days here. The motel is a "50's roadside motel" neon lights and all. It was great. Bell's is well taken care of. Scott the owner was so nice and gave us great suggestions of places to visit during our stay. He and Jackie made our stay so pleasant, taking great care of us....

We stayed at Bells for one night while in route on vacation. The room was very clean, although plain and simple, it worked great for an overnight. I parked in front of the unit and had to lug my bags about 20 ft! I forgot just how convenient motels like this are when you've been driving and just want crash....

Stayed in this hotel with our small dog, and were quite happy with the kitchenette room we booked. Owner is friendly and room was impeccably clean. We liked that it wasn't your run of the mill chain hotel, and appreciated Scott's one on one relationship with his travelers.

This motel is very clean, and the beds are comfy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. My room even had a REAL TILE shower, that looked like it had just been installed! Unheard of in a motel like this. One of the nicest motels of this type I have ever stayed in. An added bonus, is that is on...

We have installed ceramic tile in the showers in three rooms over the past three years. This is a part of our on-going effort to remodel as much as possible each winter while business is slow. We have a little different focus this winter. We are mounting flat screen televisions on the walls of each room. We should be done...

On my this year's road trip, I have booked one night in this private owned and operated motel. Apart from the price, a reason for my decision were the comments of the owner Scott S on customers reviews on TripAdvisor. He is taking care of customers concerns - I like that. The motel is an old-fashioned one. The rooms were...

Checked in to the hotel and we were unsure how many days we would be staying. The owner said, no problem, we can just add another day if you decide to stay. They provided towels for wiping down our motorcycle and I love the fact you can park right outside your door. Motel is within walking distance of restaurants and...

Stayed one night. This is a American owned, ma and pop non chained motel. It is 1950 themed and is the best lodging value in Spearfish. I had a room with one double bed. It had a mini frig and a microwave. No coffee pot. Coffee is ready at 8 in the office. No continental breakfast. No shampoo or hair...

Bell's Motel is a non-chain-motel bargain. Plenty of motorcycle travelers stay here - solos, groups, families - makes for parking lot chrome and camaraderie. The premises are of the knotty-pine 1950's style: there were not enough outlets to use lamps and mcicrowave simultaneously, economy-brand import-soap and shampoo - we just dealt. No breakfast, but a good coffee shop around the...

My family of 5 stayed here on our way west. I knew from reviews that it was an older mom and pop place. I was very happy to have such a reasonable priced stay-under $90 for a double room. The room was very clean, though quite dated-older carpet, tube TVs, darker lighting and paneled walls. The kids used the pool...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We have a 1950's themed motor lodge motel (park in front of your first-floor room) downtown in Spearfish, SD. We offer a mini-fridge and microwave in each room. Our beds have new pillow-top type mattresses. Clean and comfortable is our mantra. For two adults our summer prices are $64 plus...
