Whenever I have to head down that way, I choose to stay at the Prarie Winds motel. The rooms are always clean, there is always a smiling face to help you with whatever you may need, and don't forget about the continental breakfast! Extremely reasonable rates, and there is also a restaurant attached to the motel :)

Staff was very friendly and courteous. The beds and pillows however were absolutely the most horrible thing I have ever tried to sleep on. Stayed 3 nights and slept for 4-5 hours per night if I was lucky and even then it was constant tossing and turning. Beds are shot and need to be replaced, when you sit or lay... More

We really appreciate you taking the time to write your review. With the busy hunting season coming to a close, we now have the ability to replace the worn beds and pillows. We are very fortunate that we have this high occupancy and realize this also means replacing some of the room furnishing during our slower months. Comments such as... More

As we had told the property manager, we would be in late and late we were! She was still there, warm, caring and smiling; she had turned the light on in our room and the door was unlocked. We slept comfortably and really was reluctant to get up to return to our home state, WY. We recommend this motel highly.

I was in town to visit family and stayed only one night. Very friendly at check in, the room was clean, had a fridge and microwave which was a very nice amenity. I like to travel with my dog and this is a pet friendly motel, another nice amenity! I do think adding perhaps hard boiled eggs to the breakfast... More

We stayed at the Prairie Winds several times over a 2 month period while working in the area. The staff is really amazing and friendly. They will go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and help you with whatever you need! I had to bring my dog in one of the trips here and the hotel manager (Crystal)... More

The staff is very kind and trusting. I was in the area for work and had spent a long day in the field and upon arrival after hours at the hotel, the keys were simply left at the desk with a note for us. It made check in very quick and easy to say the least! The rooms have everything... More

This is a wonderful motel to stay at service is joyful, kind and very helpful. Rooms were clean well kept. The air conditioner below the window even had a remote control so you could adjust from bed.

Would absolutely stay here again. Great staff. Clean rooms with everything you need. Mini fridge, microwave, flat screen. Breakfast in the mornings is great. I believe that this is the best hotel in an hour radius, including all the ones that cost way more. I had to stay here for a few weeks, coming and going at odd check in... More

Whether your hunting upland game or waterfowl The Prairie Winds Motel is an excellent choice. The bar and restaurant was located in the same building as the motel and was a welcoming place to be after a long day in the field. The staff was very helpful whether we needed extra towels or a freezer to keep our trophy birds... More
