This conveniently located hotel is just fine. For an independent hotel, I found the price to be too high. Our first floor room was clean and roomy, but there were some poorly repaired spots on the wall in the bathroom that I would not expect in a $100/night room. That, combined with just two pillows per bed, and old-school blankets...

Our family of four stayed at this hotel on July 20, 2015. We were on the first floor on the north side of the hotel, and the room was as I expected after reading others' reviews. The carpet was stained and a portion of the bathroom wall by the shower had obviously been replastered. The front desk staff was friendly,...

Clean, comfortable, carb laden breakfast that should keep us full all day lol! Friendly staff. 7 miles off 29 but thank God I found a room, everything was booked between Sioux Falls and Sioux City. Nice beds, nice bathroom, flat screens with many channels. After tenting all week it felt luxurious lol

I stayed at the Prairie Inn with two other friends/colleagues for a conference at USD. We were excited to find that they have (at least) one room with three queen beds, which was perfect for us! The room itself was clean, and the beds were a little soft, but still comfortable. The towels and pillows were adequate, but are showing...

The Inn was not worth the price we paid. We made a reservation 2 months in advance because of a wedding and when I checked on the reservation 2 weeks before we were to arrive, they had no record. The same thing happened to others in the wedding party. After a second phone call we got our room for 3...

The rooms were clean. The staff was friendly. Pretty basic things like soap, shampoo were at a minimum. The drink machine wouldn't except bills, change only (it was broken). The overall experience was pleasant. The breakfast was good with plenty of variety.

We were given our reservation here by my fiance's work company. We got to our room, which is a clean room with comfortable beds. It is an older hotel but still a good place to stay with a few issues. We would have prefered one bed and a sofa however. The rooms are joined which both surprised me and concerned...

Our friends stayed in a more expensive motel down the road; when we went to visit them, I can't say it was any better than our room, honestly. One of the most interesting things that happened is that I and three of my kids checked in, hauled our bags to our room, went to the bathroom, checked out the tv,...

We were here to judge a KCBS BBQ contest, and, looking at Tripadvisor, had made reservations here. It was OK, but in my opinion, just OK. The room was pretty clean, the bed was pretty comfortable, and the breakfast was pretty good. The front desk was also acceptable, but nothing outstanding. This three stars says "just average," and that is...
