Hotels near Dakota Square Mall. Some of the best shopping in Northwest North Dakota can be found at the Dakota Square mall. With anchor stores such as Target, JC Penney, Sears, and Herbergers, the Dakota Square Mall is by far the largest shopping center in the area. Best Buy is a new store on the grounds, but is not attached to the mall itself. The Kelly Inn Minot is located directly across the street from the shopping center, so for shoppers, our location is ideal. Along with the anchor stores listed, the mall hosts a wide variety of stores, some of which include Old Navy, Victoria Secret, American Eagle, Bath & Body Works, and many more.
