This is a great all-around hotel for anyone visiting the Valentine area. The rooms were spacious, clean, and in good repair; I would estimate they have been redone in the last four years. They have a few Western decorating touches (including some funky braided lampshades), but these aren't overwhelming. The air conditioning worked as well as any hotel in which... More

We stayed at this hotel during a motorcycle trip in June and we drenched with rain just a few miles from town. The hotel staff was so nice that they brought towels into the lobby to allow us to dry ourselves. The room was clean and spacious and breakfast the next morning was great! If you're ever in Valentine, this... More

Based on a previous bad experience in Valentine, we decided to give the Econo Lodge a try. What a difference! The room was big and smelled clean. Not always a given when you travel with a dog. The bathroom was squeaky clean with a second sink and a nice, long countertop. The two queen beds were super comfy. There even... More

Dear Chris M, Thank You for taking the time to review our hotel, it has been surprising to us how many people travel with their pets. It is a perfect set up for your pet because we have our designated pet rooms on the ground floor close to the park area for exercising and other. We hope that you will... More

I travel a fair amount, so bring a bit of experience with my review, as well as comparing it to larger, metropolitan areas. Please believe me when I say this is THE place you want to stay while in the Valentine area. The room (even the corners of the bathing area) was spotlessly clean, the beds are great, the staff...

Very clean room and enjoyed our stay. Have stayed here before and will again! Suites are a great way to relax on long trips and price was very reasonable. WiFi was available and very helpful when on a business trip. Good parking!

One does not usually think of the word "excellent!" in conjunction with the word "EconoLodge." But this hotel was great. And it is a bargain at a 8000 point Choice Hotels reward redemption. Those 8000 points got us a very nice two-bedroom suite. Heat worked great even though bitterly cold outside. Very comfortable beds. Only minor issues were the lack... More

Used to be an old drive up. Now has new 2nd level and suites wing. Less than 120 bucks even during Sturgis. Booking them September 2013 for our wedding block. Good location. Breakfast and wifi. Outdoor area is like a small park. Within walking distance of Peppermill Restaurant and downtown shops.

Traveling with a very large group of car enthusiasts, The Dunes and the City of Valentine welcomed us with open arms. This is a perfect place for a group of friends. Parking is plentiful, rooms are clean and well appointed, and breakfast is good. Couldn't ak for more.

Friendly greeting upon arrival and clean rooms even though the rooms are on the small side. We were with a group of people, perfect place to enjoy our friends. The staff there was outstanding. I hope to stay there again sometime. Out of all our travels, this hotel stands out in my mind when I think about our trip.
