We stayed here in early June 2015. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. Both of us loved the fact that it was NOT a chain-type motel, we liked the charm of the smaller, family owned business. Breakfast in the morning was adequate. I would stay here again!

Clean, clean rooms. Front door parking. Family operated. Great hosts. Greatest value for the money by far in town. If only all motels nationwide followed their standards, travel would be so much more pleasant. Would stay again over and over.

Reasonable rates. Comfortable rooms. Very well kept and clean. Quite establishment and surronding. Recommended for Travellers. Easy check in, and staff was very friendly. Limited amnemities such as pool, gym, or other amenities, but i hardly ever use anyway, so no points lost in regards to my rating. I was happy with the free breakfast and friendly environment.

Very neat, clean, and well-kept combined with reasonable rate. We had not stayed here before but definitely stay here again when we go through Valentine. Due to blizzard conditions in the morning, we left without taking time for the complimentary breakfast but it looked very pleasing.

Trade Winds is simple, welcoming and convenient for travers, fishermen and hunters in this area. Don't expect extravagance. This is country clean and simple at a very nice price. The management tries to meet every need, from prepared ice buckets to a simple breakfast to local information. The place to stay in Valentine, home of the best steaks I have... More

Very clean, friendly place to stay. I love motels that I can pull right up to my door and it is hard to find ones this nice. On the edge of town with a beautiful view. Rooms are very large with microwave and fridge. I will stay here next time through for sure.

My husband and I stayed here on our way to North Dakota. It was pet friendly so that was a must. The beds were kinda hard but clean. The breakfast was small but they did have premade omelets. I don't know if we would stay here again but it wasn't bad.

We travel to Valentine every New Year's and always stay at the Trade Winds. The rooms are unbelievably clean and the sand hills water is the clearest you can imagine. The owners are personable and a pleasure to visit with. Breakfast includes waffles, omelets, and biscuits & gravy.

Had a family get together/impromptu reunion in Valentine and some family came as far away as California, Arizona, Texas, Pennsylvania and Washington State. We all stayed at the Trade Winds! The rooms are very spacious ( larger than most comparable hotels/motels ), with updated décor, comfortable beds, including all the standard amenities everyone expects today and some you don't, like...
