WOW! Where do I start? First, stay here! If you are doing a search right now, the search is over! (Hope that there is a room available) and get there and enjoy your stay....just like I did! This is a true secret in the West! I never thought I would ever find a place that has that 50s retro feel... More

I've stayed many times at Prairie Inn and I have always Ben pleased with this local motel. It's quiet, rooms are divided by block walls, no sound from neighbors. Beds are decent, no back aches in the morning. And friendly service. It's convenient just off the highway. Breakfast fare is continental, if you want full breakfast, there is a awesome... More

This motel is a true blast from the past, with its midcentury style and retro rooms. But don't assume that it's shabby - it's not. For a great price you will get a huge, clean, comfortable room. The retro details are just added fun.

This room was very simple and very dated. You could see the attempt to keep the rooms clean. However the towels had many stains on them, some that appeared to look like washed blood. The beds had very thin mattresses as well as the pillows. The room did provide us with a warm place to stay on a night we... More

We had driven hours from Coeur d'Lane, Idaho & thought this might be a reasonable stopping place. We had made a reservation earlier in the day & thought we might be in at 1:00AM. We called the staff back at 10:00PM to let them know it would be a couple of hours later. They arranged our getting into our room... More

This motel is under new management and is very good. It is rustic with wood ceilings in each room and block walls insure a quiet night sleep. We stayed here 4 days for a wedding we went to. The couple at the desk are very helpful and the maid device is unintrusive and great! Rooms are clean and spacious. No... More

We try to pick non chain motels by using our tried and true system; brick and flowers. Brick means quiet and flowers shows someone cares. This motel had both. The check in was quick and efficient and then we got into the room. They are huge! Clean, we'll appointed as in a clock radio. We travel a lot on motorcycles... More

While driving back home from out west we needed a place to sleep for 1 night in Evanston. Luckily we got into town at 10:30pm before the front desk closed at 11pm. This is most definitely a “mom & pop” place. It’s an old hotel that has not been modernized but it was clean, quiet, convenient to I-80, comfortable, in... More

I wrote them via Facebook page to check they were open and had rooms. Then called to book. Rooms are spacious and as well as usual door to parking lot also door to inner corridor what makes getting to the very good continental breakfast easy. Bed good and everything clean. Reception lady pleasant. Piece good.
