“Our second stay in the Tuscan Villa”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We have been here four times. The hosts are wonderful, the service is great, the rooms are clean, the food is prepared by a separate staff person who makes sure you are catered to, and you are asked for your soft drink of choice before arrival and it is cold in your refrigerator. This was our "quick call and see if we can stay" visit as we were overtired and had to take a son to the Grand Rapids airport, and decided a 10 minute drive across town beat an hour-long trip down 131. Others are cheaper, but they are cheaper. We had the pick of all the rooms (it was Mother's Day!) and went with the Tuscan Villa again as we love it. We wish it was our bedroom.

Room Tip: Some rooms are in the basement, but they are beautiful as well. Just ask in advance if that would bo...

Awe, we have the most wonderful guests. Sometimes they show up tired, and just need to relax and unwind. We feel privileged to be your hide away. I'm so happy you gave us that last minute call for a spontaneous get away.

Even though this place is 45 min from our house we choose to spend a weekend in October for our Anniversary. What beautiful rooms! Every room has a theme. The best and most beautiful breakfast included ever!!!! You have the option of reserving a massage, flowers, chocolates for your sweetheart!
Weather you are on business or need to get away for yourself or a friend! This my friend is the perfect place!

Room Tip: Just do a tour of the rooms! They are all different themes!

Thanks, Charlene. The flowers are already blooming beautifully and we're currently working on our 8th guest room. It will be our Bali Bungalow. I can't wait to share progress pictures. Is it time for you and Eric to escape?

We stayed in the New York Loft Suite, newly decorated in a lovely modern style. The suite was spacious and immaculately clean, with lots of lovely finishing touches from a wine cooler in the room to coffee making facilities and their own tasty hot chocolate mix. Huge 2 person tub in the room and a bathroom to die for with heated floor and toilet seat. We were looking for a b&b with a nice new modern feel and this certainly exceeded our expectations. We've already talked about what room we want to try on our next visit.

This was my third stay and it definitely won't be my last. I absolutely love this place. The rooms are so clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast is delicious. The staff is always so friendly and welcoming. Cheri and Paul are wonderful innkeepers. They go above and beyond to ensure your stay is perfect. My husband and I usually stay but this trip was a special stay with my best friend for a "girl's weekend". We had a great time. She loved the room and has already told family that they have to plan a stay here.
Can't wait to come back!

Tammy, it was so great to see you again and so meaningful that you could spend quality time with a dear friend like Traci during her birthday. Have Eric bring you for your birthday, I know it's coming up soon!

This was our third time staying at Prairieside Suites. This is a very nice B&B, well cared for and nice ameneties. The suites are all different and I would say you can't pick a bad one. The rooms are large and bathrooms are very nice with heated floors, tiled showers and usually a two person tub. There are cookies and treats all day with tea and coffee in your room. Beds and linens are soft and comfy.
The only reason I did not give them more than 4 stars is the breakfast. Breakfast was good and served well but was a little sparse. We had fruit cups both days, very tasty scones. First day was a waffle with fruit and second day was a omlet with roasted vegetables. I would have liked to have an option for toast or muffin and perhaps a meat item. We have stayed at a lot of diamond rated B&B's and for the price of a room these additions should be options. It also seems our last stay breakfast had more options. As far as the area, you are in a neighborhood setting. Within driving distance of a two story mall and downtown Grand Rapids. There are some seedy areas along the way but GR has lots of really great little resturants.

Room Tip: look on line all are great

You are soooo right. We had some confusion that morning, half our group was eating Gluten free. We decided not to put toast on the plates before serving them [which is our normal practice] because it would have been hard to remember who was avoiding the GLUTEN. We planned to put the bread by the toaster in the dining room ready for anyone who wanted our wonderful hearty 15 grain toast [they could help them self]. We had butter & Jam on the table and simply forgot--- no one said a word either. Darn it, this was one of those times when it would have been better if anyone said hey, can we have toast? Many apologies and 50 lashes with a wet noodle for us!

If you are looking for a romantic place to unwind and relax, Prairieside Suites is the place for you. Cheri and Paul took excellent care of us and have not missed one detail. We stayed in the Tuscan Villa and it was absolutely perfect. King sized bed with high quality linens, beautiful jacuzzi tub for two in front of the fireplace, candles, a shower for two, heated floors in the bathroom, even a heated toilet seat and towel bars. There were even rose petals leading to the bed. The room was very nicely decorated and very clean. We opted for breakfast served in our room which was very good. We also enjoyed a couples massage at the house.

The location is good. Very quiet area and not a far ride from downtown Grand Rapids.

I would highly recommend staying here. Everyone was very accommodating and delightful. The house and suites are beautiful. We will definitely be coming back here again.

My husband and I wanted a getaway over Valentine's weekend but wanted to stay close to home. We stayed in the Southern Mansion suite. The room was romantic, comfortable and inviting. The room looks better than the pictures. We were very pleased with the room. Great customer service, very clean rooms and every detail was covered. Prairieside Suites makes you feel like you're on a secluded romantic getaway somewhere far from home. We didn't want to leave! We can't wait to go back and this time, we'll stay for the entire weekend! Definitely worth the price. Thanks for your hospitality Sherri!
