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.

What a pleasant surprise on the road. Clean and comfy, quiet and well appointed. Convenient restaurant right next door (did not visit). The hostess/owner was very accommodating. The place is very retro so if you are looking for new decor head down the road. What you will find is a clean room with both an interior hallway as well as... More

It was 100+ for most of my travels the day I stayed here. This is a cinder block structure with no air conditioning. I guess I assumed they would have air, as this is the ONLY hotel I've been in years that didn't at least have a window shaker. They did supply a box fan which got me through the... More

It was clean, quiet, comfy bed and pillows. The AC didn't work but there was a fan. If you are l expecting a Marriott don't stay here, but for a great price, it is clean and a safe place to stay. Expect a very invigorating shower though! We were just passing through Evanston, so it fit the bill.

LARGE rooms!!! Probably the biggest outside of a suite I have ever stayed in. The price was LOW...$58!! :) Beautiful wood plank vaulted ceilings. Pet friendly. Very friendly staff. My only critique would be the breakfast...it was all donuts, bagels, etc, which is FINE, however, several of the items were stale and a bit hard/dried out. Milk & yogurt were... More

this motel has the largest rooms I have ever stayed in. it is also one of the cleanest and quietest places I have ever stayed. the desk staff and managers are very helpful people! parking is outside your door, plus there is a door to the hallway which is unbelievably wide, could drive a truck through it.

The young couple who own the Prairie Inn Motel have done a wonderful job with this really neat retro motor inn. The very large room for our overnight stay was comfortable and clean and we really liked the all-wood ceiling, which helped to give the room a lodge-type feel. At Prairie Inn you drive right up and park outside your... More
