Stayed overnight on a Friday. Hotel was sold out, but you would never guess it as it was quiet all night. Great rate and very close to USD. A nice surprise was a mini fridge and microwave in the room. Room upstairs are all 2-queen beds. There is also a large flat screen tv with decent cable incl. HBO. Room...

The front desk staff was helpful. The room was clean. We seemed to be in quiet area of town. There is a bowling alley/lounge attached that was not open on the Sunday night we stayed. Would surely stay again.

Hotel is clean, beds comfortable. Manager/staff very nice but on weekend/holiday in short supply. Manager was cleaning rooms! Breakfast is typical of waffles, hard boiled eggs, rolls. Location is one block from Dome, one block from campus.

My daughter and I were visting the campus at USD. Our appointment was at 10:00 a.m. I noticed the check-out time was 11:00 a.m. The front desk was extremely accommodating and allowed us to check-out late. Nice, clean rooms. Friendly service. Very close to campus.

We found this hotel on Tripadvisor and once again we were not dissappointed. The room was spacious and extremely clean. The king bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. All the essentials when you've spent a long day on the road!

Stayed here to visit daughter at college. Very convenient location, close to campus and the Dakotadome. Staff was very friendly and helpful, even though I made a mistake with dates on my online reservation, they honored my reservation and price and didn't charge me extra for the night I "didn't show up". Worked hard to get me a room on...

Did not stay at the Prairie Inn, made a reservation and had to cancel the day of the stay and management would not refund my room. May be a nice place but their policy is different than other hotels.

This was a nice hotel. It was clean, large room,Bathroom was spotless. Had computer assess in room and a TV with hundreds of channels. Was friendly and VERY reasonably priced - pet friendly too. I have stayed in the other "nationally" known hotel in town but will return here. Nice choice
