Booked this on Expedia and had never heard of Yelm before this. We had two different rooms the two night we stayed. First was a King studio in the new building which was excellent. Large modern room, very clean and quiet. Second night was a standard King room on the top floor of the "older" building on site. It too... More

As a member of a local church, we book accommodations for our guests at the Prairie Hotel because the rooms are roomy & clean. They have every amenity (except a pool) of much larger hotels. A cinema multiplex, restaurants, and local pubs are within a 10 minute walk.

I had never heard of Yelm before booking this hotel (90 min drive to Paradise Visitor Centre in Mt Rainier NP) and was expecting basic accommodations. But furbishment, cleanliness, amenities at the Prairie Hotel is every bit as good as any high-end boutique hotel in a major city (and a lot more inexpensive). Our room on the third floor had... More

We could not find a room in Olympia so we tried this place and were pleasantly surprised. Though Yelm is not exactly a fancy town, this hotel is very good. Nice large rooms, very clean and friendly staff. All that comes at an affordable rate.

We were visiting Olympia, but couldn't find a decent hotel. The Prairie Hotel showed up as an option for an amazingly low price. Took a chance and we were glad we did. Spacious new hotel rooms, fridge, microwave, air conditioning and comfy beds. We would stay there again!

We stay at the Prairie probably 3xs a year for horse events. By far, it is one of our favorite places (and we travel a lot). The staff is consistently great and the rooms are always very clean, comfortable and up-to-date. During a recent stay, we had an issue with our room and the hotel went above and beyond what... More

I wish I had reasons to visit Prarie Hotel in Yelm, Wa. more often. I'd certainly become a frequent booker. Easy to book, very pleasant registration clerk (a human!). There's a new part & that's where I stayed. Very secure, quiet, spacious, clean, pretty, everything you need is there or they'll get it for you. Thanks!!

I chose this place to hang out until the movers delivered my household goods. I was tired of the noisy alternatives along Interstate 5. The Prairie fit the bill as it is situated off one of the main roads through Yelm and was nicely absent road noise. I had very restful sleep there. Of course my visit was during the... More

We booked this hotel last-minute when visiting Yelm. Rates were excellent, rooms were modern & very clean, and service was great. They gave us a AAA discount on top of their already reasonable rate. They are pet friendly and I'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and the first night was great and during the day it was as well, but the second night there was a HUGE party going on in the room right next to ours that started getting loud at 11:00 pm and got increasingly so until 5:30am (doorbell ringing, yelling, pounding on the door...all...
