While visiting family for Christmas. A very comfortable and quiet room. Roomy, well appointed, spotless. Not much breakfast. Could use a little more water pressure, but bathroom was fine. Exactly what we needed for a break from Family Christmas chaos.

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay near the Red Wing Casino. Looked on line and found this perfect place in Yelm. For a small town this hotel was a nice surprise. Room was very large, bed was good, bathroom was large. Many extra amenities in the room including fridge, coffee maker, popcorn, lots of pillows,...

This hotel has grown over the years which reflects its successful practices. Check in was very easy, we requested a late check in due to the distance we traveled to get here. Yelm is off the beaten path which provides the peacefulness. Our room was spacious and clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. There was a grounds crew...

Right now...stay away .. Service is very poor... Not enough help and No TV. We've been here 4 days now and have been told a different story each day about the repair of the tv... Now it is in negotiation. Our room didn't even get cleaned yesterday ... Maybe it's money issues who knows but if you let people know...

Had a first floor room in the 2nd building. It was very good! 24 hour front desk, courteous staff, room cleaned daily, spacious and excellent stay for over a week. Definitely deserves a look and was cheaper (by a little) than similar (or less) hotels in Lacey, Olympia and Tacoma. Definitely thumbs up!

The rooms were very nice, good sized, nice beds, TV's and bathrooms. There are few choices around there so was happy to have such a fine accommodation. Very close to a Movie Theatre and several restaurants. Let them know if you are traveling with a pet when making your reservation. Not all of their building are pet friendly.

This was our second time staying at the Prairie Hotel, we tried last year, but they were full. Was so glad that we were able to get a room this time. Excellent service all around. The only problem we had from the stay was the reception on the TV. They indicated that they were having problems with the system But...

The worst thing about the hotel is figuring out where the office was, after that everything was great. The person at the registration desk was friendly. All rooms are accessed from the outside. The room was beautiful. We had the king executive which had dark wood cabinets. The tub had jets and sink outside the bathroom. There were pump shower...

It was quite nice staying there. We stayed in their new building which was built 5,6 years ago. Clean and modern rooms. Friendly atmosphere in the Lobby area where they serve free continental breakfast. Staff is friendly and ready to answer your questions about the local area events, things to do, etc.
