Good if you are low maintenance

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: Affordable price, especially when other hotels in town are double the cost per night. Let us check in half an hour early. Offered continental breakfast. Additional roll out bed was only $10/night. Vending machine (1 food 1 drink) and ice machine available on first floor. More than one entrance to the hotel (could park close to back of building, so it was good for people who aren't able to walk very much). Had mini-fridge and microwave, and a small table to eat meals at. Right next to USD, and within 3 minutes driving distance to a Hy-Vee, so you can stock up on food if you need to save money by not going out to eat. There is a bar right next door, but I cannot say whether it is good or not as we didn't go. Staff was available at 1 AM when I had an urgent question to ask. Computer in the lobby is a little slow, but is internet accessible and the printer is available to use. Beds completely free of bed bugs after a thorough check upon arrival.
Cons: Roll out bed practically sunk to the floor, so person who was sleeping on that bed was pretty uncomfortable. Regular beds in the 3 bed suite were not terribly comfortable for people with back/hip problems (our friends grabbed a 2 bed room and the room was definitely more up to date with newer beds). Breakfast is mostly carb-related food/didn't seem to have much in the way of fruit--other guests staying with me were hoping for fruit, but I didn't terribly mind.
Location: Right next to USD campus (all of campus is within walking distance if you're fit to walk about half a mile), within 2 min driving distance to downtown

Not worth it

Posted Sep 6, 2016 on Hotels
Way overpriced for what you get. No outlets. There was a power strip in the room but it was really gross (black grime in plugs). Not the cleanest rooms. Hotel is showing its age. The fridge in the breakfast room didn't work causing the milk and other items to spoil. The breakfast wasn't the best. Overall not the best kept up hotel.

Disappointed

Posted Sep 6, 2016 on Hotels
The bathroom wasnt very clean. The water was super hot and i brought it to their attention but nothing was done. My 3 year old couldnt shower because she cried how hot the water was. I wanted to cry when i showered as well. Few towels were given and I found one that was dirty and had a hair in it, and I had just arrived so it wasn't any of our hair. Hair also in the bathtub. I was very disappointed. The hotel has a weird smell to it. And the breakfast buffet wasn't a buffet at all. I would rather pay more, then stay here again. I have paid less at other hotels and they were cleaner and more modern.

We ahead a good nights stay but the breakfast is sparse and the coffee was horrible. Our bathroom doorknob was broken, be sure to check that before you're dresses for bed

Prarie Inn business trip

The room was not clean. Check in was easy and friendly. Hotel in desperate need of updating. For the rate of the room, it was not worth the value. I will not be booking again.
