“Perfect!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Positively the best place to stay in an out-of-the-way town like Valentine, NE. We regret that the few times we have traveled thru Valentine in the past that we had stayed at the supe8... not that there is anything wrong with the super8... it is a well run motel... but we wish we had
known about the Raine. The Raine is a different deal and we are very happy we looked up lodging in Valentine, NE, before we headed off on this last trip. Valentine is a busy little town complete with a neat main street and stores... Do not forget to visit the "square" downtown. Anyhoo, the Raine Motel is exactly as advertised and more. The place is from the 1960's or so but *exactly* what we like in a well cared-for pure "Americana" Motel. The owners are the most delightful people and they even have some charcoal grills you can use right outside your door if you choose. They have an outside "patio" with lots of tables and chairs and a nice bar and restaurant. I saw a huge BBQ pit there and can only assume they have some special events on the patio. We were there too early in the season for us to enjoy it. (Texans are always surprised by the meaning of "seasons"... we have no clue what that means!) The rooms were very clean and the beds so comfy that us old geezers were able to "spoon" up and sleep well all night... which is rare in modern motels. I suggest that anyone will love the Raine... maybe even the hard headed if they will fit a "happy face" mask before checking in.

The room and bathroom was very big, clean and decorated very nicely. We found the beds kind of hard. The continental breakfast left a lot to be desired, especially since they have a restaurant on site. Overall...we'd stay again

The room was great, Clean, big. Great!! Tim and Dana (the owners) are great people. The food at the Neon Bar and grill was amazing. They were all VERY helpful to two guys from Wisconsin on a hunting trip. Thank you CJ. for you help. GREAT People or I would not take the time to let everyone know what I thought. Thank you

Room Tip: If in Valentine do not even stop at other places go to the Raine Motel. Great People, Great rates...

Our group has been coming to Valentine for 20 years and we always stay at the Raine . Tim and Dana are top notch hosts and go way out of their way to make us feel at home . Clean comfortable rooms , great staff , excellent food , nice bar . We spend our days hunting and hiking and always look forward to a great dinner and a drink or two before climbing into one of their comfortable beds . We feel like part of the family, and you dont find that much these days .

Stay was almost perfect if it hadn't been for the shower head which produced very little water. Service was excellent and managers very nice. Nice bar located behind check in counter. Room was very clean and bed was quite comfortable

Room Tip: test shower head before you accept the room

Arriving at 11pm was like coming home. Having driven for 8 hours, this was stretching my hours on the road, but was happy to have done so. Priced right. Comfortable, clean, pleasant place all the way around, and thoughtful of me, a 70 yr old grandma driver. Had a night-cap and didn't feel uncomfortable. Another patron was polishing off his hamburger, saying it was excellent. Sure did smell good, too! Rare to find a place to eat at that time of nite that isn't fast food...but I'd call first. Even locals hang out there. Will try to make it a regular stopping spot enroute to AZ from MN. Thanks, folks!
