Olde Main Street Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Chadron B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 July 2014

The Olde Main Street Inn is on the National Register of Historic places. We were greeted at check in with a complimentary welcome drink in the bar where we chatted with the owner, Jeannie. She showed us to our room, the “Railroad Room,” upstairs and we settled in. There was a fingernail on my wife’s bedspread, and we wondered when the bedspreads were last laundered. The shower was nice, but the towels were scratchy (ie. exfoliating). The sheets were clean and pressed, but it was a pretty old mattress. A quick look at the shelves showed quite a bit of dust has collected over time. Our room had a TV with a cable box, and the hotel has free wifi. In the morning, you get a cinnamon roll, a cup or two of strong coffee and a bottle of water for the road.
based on some of the downsides, you might question if we'd stay here again. Well, we would. The reason: the adventure of staying in such a unique place.

Jeannie is a great lady, who has a huge heart and is working hard to keep her family business going. She has a bar, but told us she doesn’t serve Red Bull or Jagermeister and wondered aloud who the person was who thought energetic drunks was a good idea. She spins wool, and will give you a lesson. And it sounds like she has quite an intellectual group in the bar on the nights (Wednesday-Saturday) that it’s open. We’d recommend the Olde Main Street Inn to anyone with an adventurous side who can go without the creature comforts for a night. It is an experience you won’t regret.

Wow is this place a find. Wonderful innkeeper who is from the area and knows it well. Fun to have a complimentary drink upon arrival and visit. The bar was closed while we were there, but is full of character including paintings by local artists. Large deerhound like dogs greet you. Big basement level dining area with a well in the middle and lots of western paintings. Our rooms were like little apts. out of a movie set with old furniture, doilies, rugs, western paintings and a kitchen area. Nice breeze thru the lace curtains. This is a college town so good organic store and downtown. Would have been nice to stay awhile.

We were planning a USA road trip. Trying to hit as many states as possible. We happened upon this little gem in Chadron Nebraska, and we are so glad we did. We stayed in the Gen. Nelson Miles suite. It was as big as our NY apartment if not bigger. Bedroom, living room, kitchen, all filled with antiques. Jeannie, the Inn proprietor, could not have been nicer.

Upon arrival, she greeted us in the parking lot. Bought us a welcome drink in the Saloon. Told us all about the Inn's history. We were lucky enough to meet her 88 yr old mother, Evvah, who was a Rosie the Riveter in WW2. What a hoot!!

If you find yourself looking for a place to stay in Northwest Nebraska, I suggest you stay in Chadron at the Old Main Street Inn. Not your typical cookie-cutter motel. Definitely unique, you will not be disappointed!!

The rooms are the neatest ones I have ever seen and the Innkeeper is awesome!! The saloon on the ground floor is well stocked and a very relaxing place to drink. They have a nice little pool table room with a cool old Jukebox.

I have taken advantage of the trip advisor forums for years, but have not written a review until now. I am so glad that I went with my gut feeling and booked with the Olde Main Street Inn in Chadron NE. A beautiful property full of history and a country charm that is had to find! The rooms were very well decorated and the building is well kept!!
We will be sure to come back and stay again any time we are close to the area!!!

Room Tip: The General Mills suite is our fav.

I have stayed at the Olde Main Street Inn numerous times in the past few years and would not even consider staying anywhere else. The rooms are historic and quaint. Jeannie and Evva are both lovely and gracious hosts and are a mine of information about local history, what to do in Chadron, local politics and anything else you might want to know. I've always been greeted with a complimentary drink in the Long Branch Saloon and the great rolls, fruit and coffee in the morning are something to look forward to. Probably the most fun is just sitting in the Long Branch in the evening and visiting with the other travelers, Jeannie and Evva and all of the wonderful folks from Chadron. Truly my very favorite place to stay anywhere in the U.S.

Room Tip: I try to stay in a different room each time as each room is unique. Each room is a treasure trove...
