Spearfish, SD is currently booming as is the entire Black Hills/Western South Dakota region – despite of and in reaction to the pandemic. South Dakota took a different approach to 2020 and thrived as some states failed. More people are moving to this area than have in decades – both commercial property and residential property are in high demand. Homes and business opportunities sell in a matter of hours – not days, not months. Taxes are low (no state income tax) and visitor numbers are staggering. South Dakota’s 2nd largest economy is tourism with over 14.5 million visitors every year. Spearfish, SD offers small town feel with big city amenities. Rapid City (largest metro area) is just 40 minutes down I90.

Small, independent lodging establishments are extremely popular with today’s traveler. Independent lodging offers unique opportunities to both guests and owners. There are no set rules to follow as in traditional franchise agreements. Owners have the freedom to choose how to market their property and what direction they want to take next.

Business models are incredibly flexible. Owners may choose the standard transient guest model currently in use or swap to extended stays and monthly rental agreements – OR a mixture of both models in 1! Seasonal operation is attainable with your winter months free, or you may choose to stay open year ‘round to further increase revenue in the off season. Owner’s may operate the entire facility with minimal outside employees – or with all outside employees. Loyal employees return for multiple seasons and the candidate pool is large in our college town. Opportunity is only limited by your imagination.

Bell’s Motor Lodge has undergone a transformation and is now streamlined, upgraded and is welcoming guests to a retro property in a new age way. All online sites and channels for managing and selling accommodations are in place. Guest rooms are spotless. Reviews are stellar. Operations manuals are provided for the current model. The 1950s and 1960s has merged with the current age to offer guests retro-style with modern conveniences. The list of ‘new this’ and ‘new that’ is extremely impressive.

Live and work in 1 place! No commute necessary; a comfortable, updated manager/owner apartment is included.

Yearly reports available to serious, qualified buyers. For Sale by Owner.
