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.

With some of the reviews I was unsure of this place. The shot my expectations out of the water. We had a suite it was clean with plenty of room for pets and kids. Room had no pet odor and the people are do small town friendly. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

My stay here was very pleasant. The rooms were clean, wifi good and owners were lovely. It was within walking distance to everything. The only thing was breakfast didn't have a lot of protein choices for a vegetarian

My stay at this hotel was substandard. The major "plus" for the property is its closeness to the Dakota Dome which is directly across the street. The lobby area had an unidentified odor in it. Shortly after arrival I picked up the room phone to sign up for a wakeup call for the following morning. The phone was inoperable. It... More

Hard beds, flat pillows, noisy. The showers in the 2 rooms we booked had holes in the sheet rock from excess moisture. $70 per isn't too bad, i guess. Just need to shine it up a bit inside. Also, the Howler attached is a disaster out back by the kitchen exit. Garbage and crap all over and just general filth.... More

I had no problem paying for the extra person, I just think they could have waited till check out to address it , instead... More

The room itself was ok for the price. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom was awful, with a lot of water damage around the shower which is very unsanitary looking. If I had to stay in Vermillion again I am not sure I would pick the Prairie Inn again.
