The Elk Run Inn is clean, quiet, and near some restaurants, but to us it has one MAJOR drawback -- the room was heavily perfumed. I asked in the office to see if the girl knew of a hidden perfumer in the room, but no, she said the owner makes the staff spray the rooms down with this perfume after... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you were put off by the air freshener in the room. The desk staff should have offered to move you to another room. It may have been that the room you were in was just cleaned and therefore the scent was stronger. I would offer the... More

Room with a working kitchen, however, quite small and in need of remodelling. Not very soundproof, could hear the TV of my next door neighbor or even talking. Wifi kind of weak, reception outside is better. Every room has a theme but all these pictures and statues of bears, as in my case, are great dust collectors, do not go... More

We are glad to have been a convenient location for you. It is unfortunate that the laundry room was bothersome to you. We usually do laundry from 9am - 2pm and most of our guests are out and about during that time. With your 4:15am start time for the grouse tour you probably came back to take a nap during... More

Nice place to stay for the price.It is clean. Totally not commercialized thats a plus. Quilts and shower curtains were hand crafted and matched the theme of the room very cool and gave it a homey feel. But the remodel work was poorly done and primitive. The room I was in had a kitchenette which was fun considering I never... More

Thank you for letting others know about your recent visit to the Elk Run Inn. We are sorry that we did not get the information that you had requested an upgraded room. When we are full there is less flexibility in moving reservations around, but we would have at least tried to work with you if we had known. All... More

This is a nice little spot to stay at for a day or two. Different themes for each room are really nice, such as bear, elk, and trains. The front desk guy is super nice and enthusiastic. You can ask him anything about the area, super helpful. The beds are fine, not the best, but okay. Carpets needed a cleaning,... More

We had a last minute trip and booked this hotel last minute - they accepted dogs, had a fair price and good reviews. We were not disappointed, it is obvious how well this hotel is cared for. Each room is different and nicely decorated. This is not a 5 star resort it is a small town locally owned hotel, and... More

I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere nicer! The room was clean, bright, and everything worked! I only asked for 2 beds, but got 2 rooms, 2 tv sets and a kitchen, fully equipped, for less than a chain motel down the street. It was quiet, the AC worked perfectly and it was very comfortable. I usually try to pick... More

Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. The room included a kitchen area and could be used for an extended stay. The main concern would be the small size of the room. We are small to average sized people who travel light and the space was no more than adequate.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experiences for other travelers. You are correct that our room sizes vary. Older motels often were built in stages and the dimensions and arrangement of the rooms vary greatly. We often try to sell the larger rooms first depending on the number of guests on a given night.

Lovely little place that has all of the amenities. We stayed in the wolf room. Small but cozy. Neat little kitchen containing everything. We are only here for one night but I could see spending a few days. We broke down in the parking lot and the owner loaned us tools to do a repair. Lots of stores and restaurants... More
