This is an excellent motel located on Hwy 20/83 with friendly owners. It was very clean and well maintained, a good price, comfortable bed and good breakfast. I would highly recommend this as the place to stay in Valentine, NE. We have stayed here before and will do again when in the area.

Great place for a simple overnight visit. The check-in was easy. Room was clean, spacious, and quiet. Nice bathroom and coffee maker. Great place for hunters. Located on the main highway going into town from the east. Very easy to find.

We have stayed at other hotels in Valentine, all were good. Chose Trade Winds this time because of its rating on Tripadvisor and were very disappointed. The bed was uncomfortable and the towels in the bathroom were worn out and ready for rag bin. We could hear the television all night from a room two doors down and the hot...

Very clean, spacious and well maintained small motel in the heart of bird hunting paradise. Great husband and wife team that have owned the property for more than 20 years. Super comfortable and right near everything.

Nice large and clean rooms. Pet friendly and nice grassy areas to walk your pets. Office staff was very helpful, There was a little highway noise from the harvest trucks, but that was expected at this time of year. Overall this is a great place.

Finding this motel was like finding an oasis in a very windy dusty town. (The town is Ok though and has some very good things to see ) The grounds were very well maintained, tidy, clean and welcoming. The lady in reception was very pleasant and efficient and had our keys organized without any fuss and hanging about. The price...

Trade Winds Motel is a lovely place to stay - we booked in for one night (wished it was more), the rooms are big, very well appointed with a reclining chair to watch TV and exceptionally clean. /there is a small garden area which is really well looked after, there also some garden chairs for use by guests.

The girlfriend and I stayed here for a quick overnight stay traveling back home. The place is clean and staff friendly. The price was right and the breakfast free. All in all, not a bad place to be for a night or two.

After reading reviews, I chose this place in Valentine. Although there were very few cars in the lot, I was told that the only pet-friendly room left was a smoking room. It was predictably smelly, but I took it anyway due to fatigue. I was hoping that the smell would disappear with the AC on, but the unit was unable...

Clean and basic accommodations on the south side of town. Beautifully manicured grounds. Reliable internet service. Owners helped me navigate the town. Hot breakfast is advertised, and I guess that is true, but pretty mundane. Friendly service.
