I surprised my wife by taking her here on our anniversary. It was a great time. The staff is great, the facility is nice and clean, and we enjoyed the French theme of our room. All the rooms are very different, so I can easily see coming back again and staying in a different room for a different experience.

Thanks for sharing your experience with Prairieside Suites. There is a new trend called "Stay-cations". This is when you STAY close to home and vacation, saving precious time... PLUS gas money! Michelle lives about 20 minutes away but when she arrives to STAY in one of our 7 well designed THEME ROOMS, she might as well be 200 miles away. We respect our guest privacy and love when they come to our bed and breakfast to HIDE OUT!!!

Again for me.... the Good the Bad and the Ugly. The good is the lay out of the property. My wife and I stayed in the Tuscan room which has only an outside entrance. We are not, in general terms, B&B people. The good aspects of this property is the room. The room was very spacious with a jacuzzi tub in the room. The room had a king sized bed, couch, jacuzzi tub and a table with sitting for 2 and it was not cramped. The bathroom was very clean and had heated tiles on the floor and a heated seat on the commode. We opted for the in room breakfast option for 1 of the mornings which consisted of yogurt, juice and muffin. The other morning we had breakfast in the main house, which was waffles, fruit and eggs. The portions were generous and if you didn't walk away full it would be your own fault.
One evening we selected from the DVD selection, and although somewhat dated there is a variety from which to select. There are also CDs available to take back to your room and there is a CD player in the room.
The bad portion of the property is the location. There really isn't much near that is relatively close. It is a reasonable drive into Grand Rapids but if you are looking for a nicer dinner you would need to go into the downtown. The GR Hopper will not services this property so if you don't want to drive you will have to pay for a cab.
As with other B&B where we have stayed, there is limited amounts of soap and shampoo in the shower area. I'm not sure what it is with B&B but few appear to provide toiletries at an ample level.
This B&B has a large number of items they provide for sale. I would say this property does a wonderful job of providing a multitude of opportunities to up sell you. There must be about 100 options to spend more money once you arrive. Considering the price per night for this property, I was a bit surprised to see the level of additional selling for the guests.

Our stay was excellent! The room was really cozy and beautifully decorated, and it had everything one would wish for a perfect, romantic night. Our hostess (was Kay her name?) was super nice and we especially enjoyed meeting the other couples for breakfast. The kitchen/living room were perfect for a sweet treat in the middle of the night.
Thank you everyone at Prairieside for making our romantic night perfect!

Cheri and Paul went wayyyyyy above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect! My husband and I celebrate our anniversary on my birthday (yes, I know, I let him off easy lol), and we couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our big #1! It was also our first experience with a bed and breakfast. We were so amazed at the attention to detail that was put into our stay! The bed was soooooooo comfortable, we were hoping to sneak it out hahaha....darn thing wouldn't fit on the car roof! LOL We had such a relaxing time there. The pool was spotless, very warm, and my highlight! I am so greatful that it was still open for us! The breakfasts were absolutely amazing, and we had so much food!!!! The shower was a full body shower, and man, that was luxury for us. Loved it, getting one in our house when we can! Also the heated towel bar was great! Getting one of those too! Cheri was so sweet, and made several dinner suggestions to us, which I appreciated. She even has a drawer of places to go with maps to each place! How cool is that!?! The linens were so soft, the pillows perfect, everything about this place was perfect! We don't get to do things like this much, but when we do, we will be certain to go back to Prairieside!!!!

Room Tip: Stay in the Spanish Hacienda!!!!! It's beautiful!!!!!

AMAZING ROOMS! A little pricey, and pretty far from macomb michigan lol but it was sooo worth it. The full body massages were great and soo relaxing. It was above and beyond what I expected. Everyone was soo pleasant and the service was perfect. No one was all up under you, but they made sure that you were comfortable at all times and if you needed anything. Great privacy and great way to getaway :) I will be returning again I am sure of it!
