We had stayed at this motel for 20 years and then quit canoeing for 9 years. After reading the reviews, decided to try it again after booking our canoes. VERY sorry! We used to book the entire motel but booked 6 rooms this time. Not 1 booking was correct and the check in took almost 30 minutes for us and... More

This was my second stay at Motel Raine this year. I was accompanied by 16 other golfers on this trip as we played the awesome Prairie Club south of Valentine. The motel is an old 60's throwback. The owners are both very nice and will give you advice about the area. The rooms are a little tired but are very... More

I ran the Sandhills Marathon with a friend in June 2015 and selected this motel based on its high Trip Advisor ranking. We were extremely disappointed. Calling the property "a little worn" is putting it as nicely as possible -- this is a bare bones motel that has not been renovated or updated in many years. Rooms may be non-smoking... More

Nice Mom & Pop place to spend the night. It is old school and just a little worn, but was clean and comfortable. The Neon Grill served an awesome dinner, but skipped the free breakfast in the morning was not suited for someone watching carbs. Friendly staff at the motel and grill. Felt room was probably $10 to $15 overpriced... More

Last night was the third time I had stayed at Motel Raine. While it isn't anything fancy, it is always clean and the staff is always helpful and friendly. The room is spacious and the bathroom is quite roomy. Rooms are equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave, but if you want to eat out, the restaurant must be good... More

We had the great pleasure of staying one night at the Rain Motel in Valentine on our roadtrip in the U.S. We just passed through and had read great reviews of this motel, and we can only agree. Tim the owner gave us a warm welcome, and talked with us during breakfast, he told funny stories, showed interest in us... More

My family and I visit Valentine, NE annually to visit family and I look forward to our stay at the Motel Raine!! The Neon is easily the best restaurant I've ever had,if you want good BBQ or big perfectly cooked steak, I highly recommend dinner there, very reasonable prices as well! We always feel welcomed and hospitality is their number... More

Tim and Dana are great people and they give the Motel Raine a home atmosphere. Awesome food, great bar and nice rooms. Easy access to the highway and close enough to downtown that you can do other things while in Valentine. 10 times better than any big chain hotel or motel.

We have stayed at Motel Raine numerous times. I love the small town hospitality you receive here. The food and service are superb! Rooms are always clean n comfy. Why stay in a large motel when you can stay in a motel that cares about their clientele? Parking right by your door, and everything you need is right here. I... More

This is a typical vintage motor court. The interior of the units have been updated. The exterior was a little tired. The rooms were clean. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We forgot our reader and she contacted us and let us know before we even knew ourselves. She has offered to ship it home for us. There is... More
