Liked this hotel. We have passed it many times and were lucky to find a room at midnight. Desk clerk was nice. Room was more than we needed for just a night. It was clean and homey. As a mom traveling with my children and a dog I felt very safe. One of the kids favorite places to stay on... More

We rented several rooms and found that each room is decorated on a different theme. I ended up in a room with a Railroad theme. The room was clean and well furnished. Internet/Wireless was good. It's obvious the owners have put a lot of work into the rooms. The only suggestion I would have is that they need to work... More

We travel for business at least 3 wks out of the month. So we basically live in motels. We are always looking for value, cleanliness, and friendly folks. This place has it all. The kitchen is a plus with us being away from home so much it's nice to be able to have a home cooked meal.

Was very pleasantly surprised by this motel. The room (should say "rooms" since our suite had 2 large separate bedrooms) was very large and comfortable. Having a real kitchen was a great plus. Although you can tell that this is an older facility, it is very obvious that the owners take pride in maintaining the facility and keeping everything clean.... More

If you want a new motel with a huge room, this is not the place to stay. If you want a clean, comfortable room with a kitchen, full size refrigerator, ceilng fan, and decorated in "elk" motif, then you will find this an excellent choice. As a single traveller, the room was ideal. If there are two of you, it... More

My brother and I stayed here this summer. The staff was cordial and there were no surprises at check in. The property was clean and rooms were nicely furnished.

Through the use of tripadvisor before traveling to Craig, I decided to try the Elk Run Inn because I had not at all been impressed with the other places I've stayed in the past. Good Choice!
