“Moderate Quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

The food served was of average quality. One of the dishes served had to be returned because it was overcooked. The restaurant did however acknowledge the issue and extended a discount. We will not be going back again and do not recommend this establishment.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were traveling with pets. Our room sported indoor/outdoor carpet, and the bare essentials for an overnight stay - the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean, if outdated. The woman at the front desk was polite but not necessarily friendly; we didn't go to the "Lounge." I'd recommend the Platte Valley Inn if, like us, you're just passing through!

This is not a destination hotel, but if you need a room in this area, we were very happy with it. This is a basic room, with bare minimum amenities, but it was clean with a good bed and a good shower. There is an a restrauant there which we found to be surprisingly good, and it had a pool table which provided the evenings entertainment. The breakfast there was also decent. The only other place to eat there is a Subway.

Clean, rural roadside motel with comfortable bedding and a good mattress. We found the towels, surprising plush and the shower was a real treat! The motel is basic and without frills. Our only complaint is that the wireless internet connection did not work.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We were travelling last year and had to stop here due to car troubles. The tow truck driver came in with us to the motel's front desk and gave the lady a wink and a nod. The sign out front said the rates were $55/night, but our basic rate was somehow $70+. I'm pretty sure the truck driver was getting a kickback on this. When the mechanic didn't have my vehicle ready on time, we asked if we could have a few extra hours in the room until he got it done. They were not understanding or helpful at all and threatened to charge us another nights rate as they were "too busy" (we only saw one other car in the lot). So we had to store our bags in the restaurant, and sat around the Flying J truckstop across the street until the vehicle was done. The room was fairly clean but way outdated, and the television was an old CRT that looked like it came from a thrift store. The reception was bad and only got 3 channels. There is absolutely nothing to do in Julesberg without a vehicle, and it was a very excruciating experience. Neither the restaurant or the pool were open when we were there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2011

I took a road trip in Summer 2011, which took me partially along the Pony Express route. I stayed at the Platte Valley Inn in Julesburg, CO, the location of a famous station on the route (and the only one in Colorado). There's not a whole lot to see here, but if you're on I-80, I'd say it's worth the two mile detour off the road.

I booked a room on the internet and the lady at the check in giggled a bit--there's never more than a few rooms taken during the summer, although it may be prudent to reserve one during hunting season. The town sits at the junction of I-76 and I-80, so I figured there may be a few more callers once the evening wore on (and there were, but not that many). The hotel has a nice little diner, but beware if you're there on a Sunday; more than likely, you'll find everything closed and the nearest place to eat will be in Big Springs, NE, about 12 miles away.

The rooms were plenty big, clean, and didn't feel like a run-down motel in the least. Large beds, comfortable mattresses, perhaps not the most exterior light I've ever seen in a place, but plenty of privacy, quiet walls, and I slept like a baby. For the price, not a bad deal at all. I'd recommend the Platte Valley Inn to road travelers in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: They're all about the same as far as I could tell, and there's no views to be had, really.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2009

We stayed there due to the interstate being closed. It is a motel, with outside doors and parking around it. We did not eat at the restaurant, so do not have an opinion on it.

The room itself had 2 beds, refrigerator and microwave which was nice. The bathroom area had a separate sink area and a lavatory, tub room. We were given no shampoo, but at least they gave us soap. There was a small coffee maker and tv with a small selection of stations.

The room was clean, and a welcome respite on a cold night. Although the kids did not like it much, it was one of those times that you can look back on and enjoy it as a twist in plans, and a great time to be together.

Next to the hotel is a truck stop, and did want to mention that as well. The food is comfort food, but quite good and the portions are huge. The chicken fried steak is my favorite, and very very good.

Would I stay here normally? No, but in a storm, with limited options and icy roads, it was a welcome sight.
