We thoroughly enjoyed Hotel Prairie, which is located in a beautifully restored building providing excellent comfort and service in eastern Oregon. Our room was very clean and quiet. The bathroom was efficient, with nice amenities, good towels and great hot water. Free wi-fi signal was excellent. There does not appear to be much going on in this little town by way of entertainment, but we had a very nice dinner at the Oxbow Restaurant and Salon (next door to the hotel), and an excellent breakfast at Chuck’s Little Diner (one door further down). In both establishments, we enjoyed interesting conversation with the owners, their staffs, and the local residents who are very proud of their town and its history. We intend to return to the area next year and will definitely stay here again. TIP: Be sure to visit John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, specifically the Painted Hills Unit, the Sheep Rock Unit and the Historic Cant Ranch. Amazing!
