We stayed 5 nights Christmas week 2015. The entire staff is cheerful and friendly. On Christmas morning there was a bag of candy on our doorknob. That was special. Coffee, tea & snacks are free and always available in the lobby. WIFI was great, room was comfortable, cozy and spotlessly cleaned. I travel on business and have never given a...

We stayed at the Prairie Hotel while visiting family in Yelm. The hotel was very convenient for our visit. The staff was friendly and the hotel modern and clean. The only thing missing was a breakfast, but that probably would not be feasible for a small hotel.

You won't be sorry. The rooms are lovely, spacious and very accommodating. Take a room on the 2nd floor if at all possible or it will sound like a herd of elephants overhead when kids are running above. Movie theatre is less than a block away. You are only an hour and half from Mt. Ranier.

I was in Yelm for two days to attend a wedding this past August. The room I occupied was quite large (single king bed), especially since I'm used to large city hotel rooms. Everything could not have been better; room and bathroom were immaculate. Price was very reasonable, ample parking. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We were on top floor of the new building in a beautifully appointed room with cathedral ceiling, very luxurious. I left my jewelry behind after checkout and Virginia, office manager, retrieved and expeditiously sent to me in the mail. Now that is five star service! And, loved the delightful town of Yelm!

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, (July) we recommand this place. Very nice, new, quiet. Nice restaurant that we recommand near is Emma's Grillhouse for breakfast and supper. For breakfast, at the hotel you have fruits, granola, coffee, not much more, but it is enough for a couple of hours. 10/10

A reasonably modern motel, whose wi-fi isn't reliable and whose accessible rooms come with baths that have regular tubs not walk-in showers. Otherwise, the rooms are well-appointed, smoke-free, and the front desk personnel are courteous and helpful. We were in Yelm for a wedding, otherwise there is no earthly reason to be there.

Very nice room. Large enough for the three of us. Also very nice at the front desk. My only complaint was behind the building on the back steps was about 10 packs of empty cigarette packages and French fries. It was there when we got there and still there when we left. Kind of strange to see since the rest...
