If you're passing through Evanston, WY, stay at the Prairie Inn Motel, at the Bear River Drive exit of I-80. The rooms are spacious. The rooms are clean. The rooms are comfortable. The price is good (44 dollars a single). And you're supporting a local business rather than a large chain. The continental breakfast (included in the price) has coffee,... More

Could not get into the room with the key (deadbolt fastened from the inside) desk agent concurred... Desired parking spot at the room had little benefit as the old snow had not been plowed and what appeared... More

Very large room...breakfast was excellent and started early enough that you could get on the road at a decent hour. Discount from the restaurant across the parking lot. Indoor corridors keep you toasty. Very pleasant staff...highly recommend!

This is an older motel but the rooms were LARGE, very clean, quiet, and nice and warm in the winter. Not only was the room quiet, but the heater was a first - barely audible when running!! I can't sleep with noise so this was a plus. The bed was comfy - sltly hard and the pillows were perfect for... More

You should under no circumstances stay at this motel. I have never experienced such abysmal "customer service"--not to mention treatment in general--in my life. It. Was. Insane. The two people staffing the Prairie Inn were incredibly rude and belligerent to me and my husband, and were actually pretty frightening. They even treated us to yelling and cursing! WOW. Here are...

positives- nice big room, well laid out and very clean, good Wi-Fi, real shower with excellent water flow though head was only at my shoulders, real bath towels- not the half towel present in so many establishments; better than average breakfast layout which they opened 2 hours early for a group of travelers who wanted a early start; parking right...

The guy at the front desk was really helpful. Great deal for a one night stay. The breakfast was pretty good for a continental. We left something in the hotel and called back, he said he would mail it to us when we send the envelope with stamps on it. If we get it back, then this place is awesome!

Nice big room with interesting layout. One door opens outside where you can park close to the door. The other opens into a huge hallway where you can go to the lobby, the breakfast area or the big laundry. A few minor things like a burnt out lightbulb, running toilet, stubborn lock were minor and taken care of quickly. Woukd... More

What's not to like? Low price ($50-60 range). Huge rooms. Clean. Quiet. Nothing fancy. High ceilings and, go figure, with beautiful wood. The furniture is basic and nothing too pretty but the bed was very comfortable. We slept great. Hotel is in very quiet area. Our non-smoking room truly did not smell of cigarettes. Easy to park right outside your... More
