“Sleep easy here......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

After breaking down in Mitchell, my motorcycle was towed to Prairie City. I believe this is the only Hotel in town. Just blocks away from the mechanic's shop.
I was so impressed with the service! High five to Jenny, she was very helpful!
The rooms are clean & the bed was very comfortable!
I'd stay again.

We stayed at this hotel on a trip to John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The historic aspect of the hotel was charming. The room/bathroom, lobby, and kitchen areas were all clean, the woman behind the front desk was friendly (and knowledgeable about the history of the hotel), and they did a great job with the renovations. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the area!

We came to Prairie City as a base for bicycle day trips and general exploration of gorgeous Grant County with its Strawberry Mountains, rural valleys, rivers, rock formations and fossils. This historical hotel exceeded our every expectation. The classy and authentic downstairs lobby overlooking Front Street, with period furniture and pressed tin ceiling was a quiet conversation gathering place for guests. The common kitchen was a surprise find with large shared fridge, microwave, china, cutlery and coffee machine ready to go every morning. One warm evening we elected to have a picnic dinner in the back garden. Our room was clean with comfortable mattresses and commodious private bath. The staff was cheerful and helpful...obtaining a bike map for us in advance of our arrival! Highly recommended for couples, singles and families!

Room Tip: Corner rooms have good lighting. Steep stairs, no elevator...if that's a problem get a room on...

We stayed here on a recent trip through the area in the dead of winter. I was very skeptical but without need - the room, while smallish, was very nice and comfortable. Just a couple of points for prospective lodgers: (1) make sure to reserve a room with a private bathroom, not all rooms come so equipped and I was surprised when they asked me for a preference; (2) if you expect a late arrival, call the hotel and let them know your ETA because the "office" closes at dark.

Overall: Sure, I'd recommend it - particularly considering the next nearest hotel is 20 miles away in John Day and from what we saw driving by it was nothing to crow about. We'd stay here again without question.

Thank you MotoMoose for staying us! We have re-done those rooms that share a bathroom; so now all of our rooms have private bathrooms. We thank you so much for your candid comments and we hope you will stay with us again.

Thank you

The people in Prairie City, OR were wonderful, including the staff at this hotel. It is updated & close to everything in this special town. I was working in John Day for a short while & this provided a nice, restful environment for me. Definitely recommend it to everyone!

This is an old restored hotel. The room was smaller than a normal hotel but very clean and comfortable. This location is a nice quiet town with mountains surrounding. The price was very reasonable. Ate at the Oxbow Restaurant & Saloon next door. The food was outstanding for a small town. Everyone in the restaurant was very friendly. We will definitely be staying here again.
