It was clean...yes...Needs updates in a bad way.. Including new remotes for the TV, who uses two remote controls these days!! And having to stand right next to the TV was not fun! The bed was old and springy to say the least. The continental breakfast was on a low end of things and served in an unsanitary way, I... More

This is a neat place. Very much a "mom & pop" motel. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Any reviews on here that say they are rude must be about another set of owners. The rooms are clean and neat. There was no road noise even though it is on the highway. A nice continental breakfast was out in... More

This motel needs help. Very old and some so-so updates. It was clean and staff was friendly. Not much for breakfast even for continental .TV needed 2 remotes and had to be aimed right at the box to work. Overpriced for what you get.

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.
