My husband and I have stayed here 3 or 4 times. It is reliable, very clean, quiet and provided a good nights rest. We have stayed at the higher priced hotel too, but have come back to this one. Better value over-all.

As you drive in you see a place that you don't expect to see in Valentine. The hotel staff from the desk to the house keeping were very pleasant. Breakfast staff kept everything full. An ok breakfast, better than most. The place is old and dated but not really worn out. Bed was really comfortable and AC fought off the... More

We walked in on a Monday and got a room with no problem. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. The #1 restaurant in town on Trip Advisor is walking distance. I got it to go and ate it at the picnic tables in the hotel courtyard. The breakfast is above par. Perfect stop for the night.

Made reservations online for a single King room but had to call the hotel to ensure the availability of a pet friendly room. What is the sense of making reservations online if you have to call the hotel? The hotel didn’t honor the reservation even though they saw the special request for a pet friendly room as they didn’t put... More

I want to apologize for not meeting your expectations. Unfortunately when you make those reservations on a 3rd party site, it does not show up you have a pet. You did reserve a king bed but it was not a pet room, so when you said you had a pet all we HAD left was a room with 2 beds... More

Room was clean, simple and comfortable with a great king bed. The highlight of this place was the fabulous breakfast... sausage biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, make your own waffles , toast and condiments , cereal, juice and coffee. Not crowded. We left fully powered for the day's driving.

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.

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

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
