This hotel is a great deal. The room we got is large, clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. The lay-out of the room is very smart and there are nice amenities, such as plenty of outlets, a charging station, two nice desk chairs, instead of the typical one in most hotels, a small refrigerator and microwave, and high quality bath products that...

Fantastic 3 night stay . Perfect haven to retreat to after the day of exploring Yelm or the many surrounding areas. Peaceful, serene allure starts as soon as to arrive (actually, at first glance) and continues through you stay. Everyone is welcoming and has a warm feeling to them as if they are in their niche. I will be back,...

We stayed at the Prairie on our way to Mt. Rainier NP. It was a nice, quiet, clean and well furnished room, there was a refrigerator and a microwave oven in the room, along with the coffee maker. There is not much to do in Yelm as it is a small town. There is a movie theatre close by, and...

We stayed here two nights and found the room spacious and comfortable. The bathroom likewise was large with plenty of counter space (not always true) and a desk to work on our laptop. They provided coffee and snacks for breakfast. Wifi was slow.

I called the Prairie home for almost two months. Quite comfortable and quiet. Loved my bed. Shower head definitely left something to be desired. It wasn't adjustable and was set to this narrow stream of water so I'd have to do this little dance to get my hair wet, get the shampoo/and conditioner out and well, just to stay warm....

Very nice and clean hotel. Very friendly staff. Only problem was breakfast selection was small. Many places to eat and a movie theater next door to stay busy. Would definitely stay again if I'm in the area

The rooms at the Prairie Hotel are large, comfortable and exceptionally clean, a great place to return to after a long cold day outdoors and great value for the very reasonable price. The friendly staff is another plus. The only downside is the hotel's very limited breakfast, but there are a lot of cafes, restaurants and a grocery store nearby,...

I used to live in Yelm so I never needed a hotel there, but on a recent visit to JBLM I decided to try out the Prairie Hotel. This has to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Super clean, convenient to restaurants, movies theater, and a nice break away from the hustle and bustle of...

We stayed at this hotel while attending a wedding at Lake Lawrence. The hotel is clean, modern, centrally located in a new business area of Yelm. We would stay here again if we needed to be in Yelm, would recommend it to anyone. Rates were great even on New Year's Eve..loved that they offered a senior room rate. Had a...
