My sons and a couple of friends stayed here on a recent ice-fishing trip to the Valentine National Wildlife Refuge. The hotel is on the south edge of town, the closest hotel to the refuge lakes (16 miles away). We've stayed here before, and a couple of years ago the hotel let us clean fish in their back room where... More

Clean, friendly managers, large rooms, close to town, good rates, good breakfast. The grounds are very groomed and it is on the edge of town. Breakfast room bright and well kept. Rooms are slightly dated but very well maintained. I have stayed here on two separate occasions. The service is consistently good.

On our way East from a hunting/sightseeing trip we stopped here for one night. Super clean, comfortable spacious room, warm welcome, and convenient parking made a restful stay. Our king room even had a recliner! Reminded us of an updated modern version of family run hotels of days gone by. Breakfast was more than adequate and we even were permitted... More

Nothing too fancy, but a clean comfortable room at a good price. Perfect for an overnight stop on a road trip. Basic breakfast offerings. Like being able to park outside room door. Close to local supermarket and gas station.

A wonderful place to stay: clean, fresh, and relaxing. It smells fresh. The breakfast fare is limited, but adequate. Inside the room, it is quiet. The only noise is the doors closing. The motel is located on the eastern edge of town, on US 20. I'd stay here again!

This charming "mom and pop" motel is definitely a hidden gem. Clean, up to date and very affordable, it's a quiet alternative to all the hustle and bustle of the more familiar and predictable chain hotels that dot the highways these days. Being able to park right outside the door is another plus and the grounds have been carefully landscaped... More

We stayed at the Trade Winds last week after a very long day of driving. The room was exceptionally clean, beds comfortable and the owners very helpful and friendly. And it was the least expensive place we stayed on the entire trip. I would highly recommend staying there. The only reason I am not rating it at the top of... More

The rooms in this hotel are very clean and very spacious. We had five women in our group and we were able to get a roll away cot in the room with no problem - there was even room to get around it to get to the bathroom. Free breakfast which included biscuits and gravy, waffles, toast, omelets, oatmeal, cereal,... More

The Trade Winds is a great place to stay. The large rooms are clean and well-maintained and the staff is very accommodating. Shopping and restaurants are nearby as is the Cowboy Trail for hiking and bicycling. It's the only place we stay when we're in Valentine--which is almost yearly.

We had two rooms side by side and they both were just great. They were clean and the people at the front desk were friendly. No pool. The breakfast the next morning was a typical Continental breakfast but it was just fine. One great thing, they had ice for sale in a freezer that you just got and put your... More
