I'm easy to please. Give me a hotel with a reasonable price, clean, cared for, good location, great bed and adequate breakfast and I'm satisfied. This hotel hit all these requirements so I left well rested and happy. Many hotels have tiny cramped breakfast rooms. This hotel had a nice large seating area. There was, at all times, a very...

I'm not sure where the motel or rooms were that show up in the pictures but I did not find it. Admittedly we got to the place very late after a long day of driving. I did appreciate that there was still a clerk at the desk. He was fairly friendly if a little slow getting us checked in. However,... More

Not sure who wrote the glowing reviews BUT let me begin by saying the picture on web site not even close to what we got. Pool was dirty. When I asked about it I was told they painted half of it and just filled it. Why would you drain the pool and paint part of it? The room was dirty,... More

Dear Laura S, We're sorry your stay wasn't more enjoyable. We are under new management and working very hard to make improvements. As far as the pool goes, it was drained in the Fall, due to the Kansas winters, and we made great efforts to improve the pool and still have it open for the season. The weather can be... More

Nice and clean room - appeared to be updated on inside. The outside is a little shabby - daughter was a little unsure about it as it wasn't very well lit at nite. The young man at desk was very nice & pleasant. The waffles & coffee in the morning were good - & it was a very quiet room.... More

Decided to try a different motel in Russell, and it's a winner. Smallish room had very new furniture and a tremendously comfy new bed. Spotlessly clean, only the bathroom revealed the property's age; while worn, it too was very clean and everything worked. Very large and pleasant dining room hosted a typical free breakfast. I'll definitely be back next time... More

I have never stayed at a hotel/motel with a friendlier or more helpful staff. The breakfast staff was awesome and the desk people were great. The rooms were adequate and cleaned to perfection each day. For the price you can't beat this place.
