This was my second visit to Hotel Prairie - and it was consistent with the first - excellent! This beautifully restored historical hotel is immaculate. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a partial kitchen that is available to all guests, as well as an enclosed patio and a lovely parlor where you can sit quietly with a book.
They have just completed a restoration of a bar/catering area. The bar is beautiful and uniquely styled. They also had a wine & beer happy hour from 4 - 8.
If you are headed to the eastern part of Oregon, this quaint small town of Prairie City has spectacular views of the Strawberry Mountains, and the Hotel Prairie is the perfect place to stay.
