Passing though on the wag to South Dakota and decided to stop for the night. High reviews on the hotel so we choice Econo Lodge. The hotel is old. There are cracks in the wall in the room, screw holes that are not filled and a cricket on the bed. The walls are dirty, and it is obvious that wiping... More

The hotel is pet friendly, has a free Continental breakfast and the rooms were quiet and clean. The best part about it is that it is near the Cowboy Way, which is a former railroad turned into a hiking trail. I walked my dog about two miles down it and it was very pleasant going into the middle of cow... More

Two vanity sink and big restroom. Sofa Bed and soft medium sized recliner. Ceiling Fans in both rooms. Bedroom and a door that closes from... More

I wasn't expecting a lot for a motel in a small town in Nebraska. I was pleasantly surprised. The pet fee is only $10 (not a huge fan of pet fees, but this was reasonable). The hotel has outside doors, which is actually really convenient when you are road tripping. The room itself looked like it was recently renovated with... More

Quaint, comfy, convenient and full of hospitality. Found this hotel on our way to S Dakota and so thankful we did. Came into Valentine during a horrible storm and had called earlier to book a room knowing that was about as far as we would get traveling that day. Nancy welcomed us like family and our room(newly remodeled) was super... More

Great room for a good price. Never expected a large room with wo king beds, great bathroom, clean and even with a great TV stuffed chair. I have stayed at many other motels and even more expensive rooms are about 70% as nice as their rooms. JAO

I just stayed here for 1 week. The rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Newly renovated with new windows. There is no pool here, but you have access to the one at the Comfort Inn a few blocks away. Staff were more than friendly! Small grassy area with picnic table, shade tree,and swing out front.

Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a good selection of options. Even though there was no interior hallway it was not difficult to get to your room. We will stay again if passing through Valentine NE.
