We didn't want to spend too much on one night in a hotel, but didn't want poor quality, either. This motel satisfied our needs. The staff was friendly and accommodating from reserving the room in the morning to checking out the next morning. The room was spacious and had both indoor and outdoor access with a parking space immediately outside... More

This is a great, non chain, motel run by nice people. The rooms are enormous, clean and well maintained. The retro design is part of the fun. Good, simple continental breakfast is included in the price. What really stands out is the service. Everyone I talked to was super nice. Even when my husband accidentally broke the room key, the...

My wife and I were heading to Oregon for a month of hiking and relaxing. We love staying at motels/hotels that step back in time. The people wete friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. They had a good breakfast and a easy time to eat. The staff were the best.

My friend and I were nearing the end of our 2-week road and decided to try a local rather than a chain motel. BIG MISTAKE! We had read some fantastic reviews of this place but what a shock when we got there. The owner/manager came to the check-in desk wearing a t-shirt and pajama bottoms for starters. He didn't know...

How this place ever got a 4 star rating is beyond me. Room may be spacious but it stops there. Beds are terrible, sheets look as if they're years old. Boxsprings are filthy. Air conditioner barely kept the room cool and I do mean barely. Towels are super filmsy. And then there were the flys.

Large rooms and large common areas. Indoor outdoor entrances. Good laundry. Very nice old travel accomodation style. (-_-) zzz Alota wood grain in rooms adding to wyomings wilderness feel. Good sound proofing.

This place is a great value. Big, clean rooms and everything worked fine. We were able to park right outside our door, which was important to us. Inexpensive and convenient, it is a very good choice for a stopover. Was pleasantly surprised that there was even coffee and a continental breakfast available. We had coffee but went next door to...

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.
