Our family of four stayed at this hotel on July 20, 2015. We were on the first floor on the north side of the hotel, and the room was as I expected after reading others' reviews. The carpet was stained and a portion of the bathroom wall by the shower had obviously been replastered. The front desk staff was friendly,... More

I stayed at the Prairie Inn with two other friends/colleagues for a conference at USD. We were excited to find that they have (at least) one room with three queen beds, which was perfect for us! The room itself was clean, and the beds were a little soft, but still comfortable. The towels and pillows were adequate, but are showing... More

The Inn was not worth the price we paid. We made a reservation 2 months in advance because of a wedding and when I checked on the reservation 2 weeks before we were to arrive, they had no record. The same thing happened to others in the wedding party. After a second phone call we got our room for 3... More

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
