65th Birthday Celebration

5 on August 10, 2018

Everything was perfect. The staff was top notch. Only suggestion is to offer some variety for breakfast menu. If you didn't like what was being served, you had limited options. Even though the staff offered to make a special meal, one might not to bother them...... because they were so nice. Not a "deal breaker, just a thought. Everything was over the top.

We were amazed from the time we walked in to the time we left. Highly recommend coming .

Best Bed & Breakfast

5 on June 17, 2018

This is really luxury style bed and breakfast! So modern, clean, and very accommodating as well if you travel with a pet. We felt like we were home! Thanks Praireside staff! We will be coming back.

Great getaway for Valentines weekend :)

Perfect anniversary gift

5 on January 07, 2018

My wife and me enjoyed every detail that Prairie side has to offer.

Innkeeper Response
That is exactly what we hope for and especially nice because going to B&B's is a new experience for you. Happy Anniversary.

The bed and breakfast is extremely nice!

3.8 on December 26, 2017

The establishment was extremely nice. The staff was friendly and the service excellent. However, if you are what is considered a “minority”.... be prepared for the individuals within the town that the bed and breakfast is located to stare and treat you as if you are from another planet. Extreme racism within the town.... it’s unfortunate, and does not reflect the treatment that is received from the bed and breakfast.... too bad it’s not located in a more inclusive community.

Innkeeper Response
Thank your for staying with us and your kind words. We do apologize for the experience you had in our town, but also thank you for recognizing that our company and staff does not reflect the views and ideas of others. At Prairieside Suites, we strive for inclusion, not exclusion - ever!

A Relaxing Getaway

4.8 on December 12, 2017

We have stayed at Prairieside Suites multiple times and have enjoyed each of our stays in various rooms. The rooms are gorgeous, inviting, cozy, and romantic! All of the amenities you can think of with great attention to detail! Breakfast is always delicious and filling! This is the perfect place for relaxation, privacy, and romance!

Innkeeper Response
This is why we have designed all our rooms with the same great amenities but they are all themed after a different part of the world. We love it when guests come back to enjoy a NEW room experience but know how clean everything delicious breakfast is...and how much fun they can have in the Grand Rapids area.

Great birthday getaway

5 on December 11, 2017

I brought my wife here for a surprise birthday getaway. Great area for a B&B. Shops and food are all close by, and right outside downtown Grand Rapids. The room was beautiful and very nicely maintained. All the amenities were pretty amazing. Wine chiller, heated floor in the bathroom, even a heated towel rack. Great breakfast both days, we paid a little extra to have it delivered to the room so we didn't have to get out of bed (we're lazy vacationers). The only issue I have is nothing I do for her birthday from now on will live up to her expectations. I guess Prairieside gets a customer for life.

Innkeeper Response
We LOVE that and this is exactly why I have carefully designed eight differently themed and wonderfully romantic rooms just so you can come back and have a new experience each time. Same time next year?

Great getaway!!

5 on December 08, 2017

My husband & I took a little getaway for our anniversary. We were very pleased with our choice - great attention to detail in this gem! Our breakfast "Goddess" Pamela did an outstanding presentation and made sure everyone had everything they could want or need

Innkeeper Response
We're so happy to provide a memorable anniversary and as the designer of Prairieside Suites I'm especially proud when all the details we provide and noticed and appreciated! Thanks for mentioning your chef Pamela, she puts a lot of love into every breakfast served here at our B&B.
