The Trade Winds Motel was clean and comfortable. It was easy to find, right on the highway. Close to downtown. The area was very nice and you would feel very safe.

A cut above a franchise motel

Posted Jul 16, 2016
Pros: Friendly manager, a really comfortable bed and nice seating area.
Cons: Our room was much nicer than you might guess from the dated exterior. No breakfast provided but good coffee.
Location: Convenient to restaurants.
If you are tired of the sameness of franchise hotels this is an excellent choice. The owner manager really seems to want you to enjoy your stay and provides a personal touch that we really appreciated. Our room had been recently renovated and besides a very comfortable king size bed it had a comfortable couch and nice western style decorating. The room was clean, spacious with fast wifi and good coffee. We had a relaxing rest on our long road trip and would definitely stay again.

Hi, Sounds like a nice place, but it is not the Trade Winds Motel in Valentine, NE. Our motel is nice also but we do not have couches or western style decor. And we do provide breakfast.

Perfect Stop Off in Valentine

Posted May 15, 2016
Pros: Cleanliness, location, free WiFi, amenities in nearby town
We spent one night as we were traveling through Valentine. It's a very nice quiet motel. Staff is warm and welcoming. The room was spacious and clean. Valentine is a nice small town. Lots to offer a visitor. We'll stop again when we travel back through the area.

Clean, spacious, basic, inexpensive.

Good experience. Not too expensive. Clean. We got charged up front when checking in, then we got locked out the next day because she thought our stay was for one night, not two. However, she fixed the error immediately. My husband thought the breakfast was cheap and generic. I didn't mind at this price.
