This was a quirky hotel, free wifi, comfy bed. Room had a fridge which suited our needs. Check in was quick. Theres a great little diner next door where you can eat. Laundry facilities for a small fee came in handy.

Super clean everything -- room, linens, hall, breakfast area and coin-op laundry room. Even though the decor dates back to the 1970's this locally owned motel shows pride of ownership. Our spacious room had a flat screen TV, fast wifi, comfortable beds and a refrigerator. Excellent value, will definitely stay here again.

We stayed 1 night at the Prairie Inn on our way to Cheyenne. Although this motel was built somewhere in the 50's I would guess, it still has great charm. But the most impressive elements are- very large room size with a comfortable bed. AND this property is the cleanest I have ever stayed in ANYWHERE. The carpet, sheets, bathroom...

Great location, clean, quiet, reasonably priced "Mom & Pop" motel. A few insignificant dents and dings on the furniture but very clean and roomy. Tumblin' Tumbleweeds restaurant, about a block away, provided a good dinner and atmosphere.

We enjoyed a good clean stay. The price was right too. The hotel is a little dated, but the rooms were extremely clean, water was hot and the rooms were large. Also. there is a breakfast that looks good and has a larger variety. Close the highway without having to listen to the noisy travelers.

We have stayed here twice. Both times were good experiences. Once we were traveling with a dog, and the staff was accommodating even with this being a last minute addition. Rooms are super clean, spacious, and comfortable. Front desk staff was very courteous and helpful. Easy to find, plenty of parking.

We stopped in Evanston on our way to Washington state. This motel is off the interstate and easy to get to! The rooms are large, the bed comfy and the shower good! The staff is very friendly and the price was great, very budget friendly. The room is basic, but has a mini fridge and a microwave. I really enjoyed...

I appreciated that this was a small locally owned hotel. Room was comfortable, nothing special. Breakfast was very good. I wish they did not use styrofoam plates and cups. Prices were fair. Easy access off the freeway.

This is one of those places that was new and nice in the 50's and still an ok bargain for a night's stay. Linens and bed were acceptable, bathroom had two sink areas and cleanliness was ok. Furnishings were worn and place could use some paint and professional maintenance. Wife is usually along and over the years we've stayed at...

Well worth it for an overnight stay...our only complaint was that our room reeked of cigarette smoke. If that was gone, it was fine. Great price, free wifi, and free continental breakfast. All rooms are ground level. Seems to be popular with motorcycle travelers of all types. Has laundry facilities for those that need it. Kind of a blah area...
