Best Western Kelly Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Traveling for Thanksgiving. Nice pool, quiet place to spend a couple days.

I had an ok experience here. Overall the hotel was very clean and staff was pretty nice, however, it was not worth what I paid. People were extremely loud and staff did nothing about it. Especially when they were in the breakfast room which was right next to our room. Housekeeping just barged in while we were sleeping, and that was irritating. The hot tub was contastly over run by screaming kids, even at 10 O'clock at night. Overall my stay was ok, would I stay again? Maybe. 3 out of 5 stars.

We stayed here 2 nights for my wife's high school reunion. Check in was easy front desk friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast was typical. This hotel is a ways away from downtown Yankton (not far except by Yankton standards). It is probably on of the better Yankton accommodations.

Very comfortable bed. Nice room to come back to after being at the lake.

We stayed the night on a Friday and the staff was friendly and let us check in early. We accidentally locked our key into our room right when we got there and a maid had no problem letting us back into our room. We even ordered room service front the connected restaurant on valentines night and got our food in 20 minutes despite the HUGE line in the restaurant We will be surely staying in this hotel again in the future.

We were there only a short time; the hotel was ok; continental breakfast was good

The room was very comfortable and accessed from either inside the motel or outside parking. Easy for unloading. We had a pet and very easy on her to get into the room without distractions.

Pleasant staff (we were given late breakfast even after buffet removed), rooms are clean, pool is nice and warm, as is hot tub/spa. Good cable TV selections. Hallways are loud, Decent value, among nicer spots in Yankton, SD.

The rooms were updated and beds were nice. The shower was bold and hot, which is great in the AM. The TV's were new, and the attached restaraunt was great.

Breakfast was way too skimmpy and way too busy to handle. Large group of Harley riders pretty rude revving engines and playing stereo loud before they left unaware of others . Not hotels fault.

We called a few hours before arrival, confirmed our requests for 2 queen beds, and requested a microwave and small refrigerator. Check-in was instantaneous, [...] We left a credit card that we used for dining the first night (delicious, reasonably priced meals (recommend the pork chop!), with good, friendly service). The pool area was a little crowded, but not enough to intimidate our 3 year old, who made several friends. Beds were very comfortable, heating was great this chilly weekend at the end of November, but we ran the shower a little to humidify the room. Housekeeping the next day was excellent, leaving our daughter's bear with a bow on the made beds. Check out was a breeze the final morning, as all I got was the receipt for dinner ... $55.00 before tip for two adults, incl. cocktails & a bottle of excellent Malbec.

The first room smelled like a sewer- we had to move- the hot tub wasn't working- which is the reason we rented the place-the light in the bathroom didn't work either.DISCUSTING!! It was not worth the money for that room- we won't come back again

Hotel price was quoted to a guest over the phone that was less then what we paid. Told guest that was the last room available which they booked. That occured twice and room were booked by callers.

We visited friends who were camping, so we were quite far from them! We asked for more pillows, but were'nt able to get any! Similar, however we usually don't stay in $110 + room so I guess we expected more!

Convenient to stores. Excellent dining facilities and event rooms.

This was our first time in Yankton and we plan to stay at Kelly Inn again when we come. We did notice an empty pop bottle under the dresser and the blanket under the comforter on one of the beds was dirty. Other than that the facilities were adequate. Good exercise room and wonderful pool and loved the complimentary breakfast.

Although this Best western is an older property it is well maintained and customer friendly.
