The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. Pretty basic things like soap, shampoo were at a minimum. The drink machine wouldn't except bills, change only (it was broken). The overall experience was pleasant. The breakfast was good with plenty of variety.

We were given our reservation here by my fiance's work company. We got to our room, which is a clean room with comfortable beds. It is an older hotel but still a good place to stay with a few issues. We would have prefered one bed and a sofa however. The rooms are joined which both surprised me and concerned... More

Our friends stayed in a more expensive motel down the road; when we went to visit them, I can't say it was any better than our room, honestly. One of the most interesting things that happened is that I and three of my kids checked in, hauled our bags to our room, went to the bathroom, checked out the tv,... More

We were here to judge a KCBS BBQ contest, and, looking at Tripadvisor, had made reservations here. It was OK, but in my opinion, just OK. The room was pretty clean, the bed was pretty comfortable, and the breakfast was pretty good. The front desk was also acceptable, but nothing outstanding. This three stars says "just average," and that is... More

Had to go to store to buy disinfecting spray and wipes! Walked in and room had musty smell and stain on chair. Pulled back comforter, to find what appeared to be bodily fluid stains on blanket. Sprayed and wiped everything down! Pillows flat. Bed linens wrinkled and different colors of white. Would have left, but all rooms in town sold... More

For the second year in a row we arrived with a confirmed reservation for a King room, but alas, there was no King room available. We were told it was out of service for maintenance. When I asked why I hadn't been contacted and informed of that, they had no explanation. If you need a room across the street from... More

Clean room, decent free breakfast with hot and cold options, and affordable cost. My only desire would be to replace some of the styrofoam breakfast ware with something safer to microwave. We had a great stay and would stay again.

My wife & I traveled to and spent two nights in Vermillion with our cat. The website for a motel just down the road from the Prairie Inn claimed be "pet friendly," but when we telephoned them they said, "sure, we allow service animals." Fortunately the Prairie Inn was legitimately "pet friendly." The employees in the lobby were very friendly... More

I stayed here for a clinic that I was attending at USD and it was a very nice stay for the price. There wasn't a pool or any of the extras, but it was a very nice, quiet, clean and restful place to stay. Their breakfast in the morning was average, but always well stocked.
