“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

This was my third stay and it definitely won't be my last. I absolutely love this place. The rooms are so clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is delicious. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. Cheri and Paul are wonderful innkeepers. They go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. My husband and I usually stay but this trip was a special stay with my best friend for a "girl's weekend". We had a great time. She loved the room and has already told family that they have to plan a stay here.
Can't wait to come back!

Tammy, it was so great to see you again and so meaningful that you could spend quality time with a dear friend like Traci during her birthday. Have Eric bring you for your birthday, I know it's coming up soon!

This was our third time staying at Prairieside Suites. This is a very nice B&B, well cared for and nice ameneties. The suites are all different and I would say you can't pick a bad one. The rooms are large and bathrooms are very nice with heated floors, tiled showers and usually a two person tub. There are cookies and treats all day with tea and coffee in your room. Beds and linens are soft and comfy.
The only reason I did not give them more than 4 stars is the breakfast. Breakfast was good and served well but was a little sparse. We had fruit cups both days, very tasty scones. First day was a waffle with fruit and second day was a omlet with roasted vegetables. I would have liked to have an option for toast or muffin and perhaps a meat item. We have stayed at a lot of diamond rated B&B's and for the price of a room these additions should be options. It also seems our last stay breakfast had more options. As far as the area, you are in a neighborhood setting. Within driving distance of a two story mall and downtown Grand Rapids. There are some seedy areas along the way but GR has lots of really great little resturants.

Room Tip: look on line all are great

You are soooo right. We had some confusion that morning, half our group was eating Gluten free. We decided not to put toast on the plates before serving them [which is our normal practice] because it would have been hard to remember who was avoiding the GLUTEN. We planned to put the bread by the toaster in the dining room ready for anyone who wanted our wonderful hearty 15 grain toast [they could help them self]. We had butter & Jam on the table and simply forgot--- no one said a word either. Darn it, this was one of those times when it would have been better if anyone said hey, can we have toast? Many apologies and 50 lashes with a wet noodle for us!

If you are looking for a romantic place to unwind and relax, Prairieside Suites is the place for you. Cheri and Paul took excellent care of us and have not missed one detail. We stayed in the Tuscan Villa and it was absolutely perfect. King sized bed with high quality linens, beautiful jacuzzi tub for two in front of the fireplace, candles, a shower for two, heated floors in the bathroom, even a heated toilet seat and towel bars. There were even rose petals leading to the bed. The room was very nicely decorated and very clean. We opted for breakfast served in our room which was very good. We also enjoyed a couples massage at the house.

The location is good. Very quiet area and not a far ride from downtown Grand Rapids.

I would highly recommend staying here. Everyone was very accommodating and delightful. The house and suites are beautiful. We will definitely be coming back here again.

My husband and I wanted a getaway over Valentine's weekend but wanted to stay close to home. We stayed in the Southern Mansion suite. The room was romantic, comfortable and inviting. The room looks better than the pictures. We were very pleased with the room. Great customer service, very clean rooms and every detail was covered. Prairieside Suites makes you feel like you're on a secluded romantic getaway somewhere far from home. We didn't want to leave! We can't wait to go back and this time, we'll stay for the entire weekend! Definitely worth the price. Thanks for your hospitality Sherri!

Thanks Tiffany & Mike for the wonderful review. You were the first to experience our newly remodeled Southern Mansion. You were here before our new pictures made it to the website! So the new upbeat look was a surprise!

We had a marvelous stay at this charming bed and breakfast. We wanted something special for our first Christmas together and Prairieside was perfect. From the heated tile floors and warming towel rack to the fireplace and wine cooler...no detail was over looked. We will be back!

We had a wonderful time and it would have been a perfect romantic getaway, had we not had our 4 year old son. With that said, Sherri served our breakfast in our room so we could enjoy time with our son, and the guests that were leaving kids behind were not disturbed. Tripp felt special with his own personal breakfast and she even lended him a toy to use for the day...very charming place and people!

The Prairieside Suites was unbelievable. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and wanted something more upscale than a hotel room. This was perfect. We stayed in the Southern Mansion room which was beautifully decorated in blue & white. There was a Jacuzzi tub for two with candlelight. A table for two with chilled wine and a special treat. Coffee and hot cocoa around the clock with cookies and brownies available from the kitchen. I found the whole place to be impeccably clean and already decorated for the holiday season. The location is close to anything you would like. We went to the Meijer Gardens and also to the new casino, Gun Lake. Breakfast was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. I hope to stay here again soon.

We're always so honored to be a part of special celebrations AND we have the most wonderful guests who appreciate all the thought, details and love that we pour into our B&B. When I dreamt of having a B&B this is the way I hoped it would be!
