I found overall the place to be clean and the bed comfortable. We went down late for breakfast, which I wouldn't recommend. The scrambled eggs were dried and rubbery and the sausage tasted like grease. We were woken up by a group of very loud people checking in as our window faced the entrance. I heard the traffic from the... More

This hotel was made for the hunter. Perfection. Birddogs welcome. Bird cleaning area. Bird freezer storage available. Hot breakfast with omlet "chef" making it the way you like it. Stayed for 4 days instead of moving on to other area just because the hotel was so great. Some rooms have jet tubs. Great after a long hard hunt. For both... More

I too found this hotel by chance.....I was traveling west on I-70 when it came on the radio that a huge snowstorm/blizzard was coming. Since I was on a hunting trip with my bird dog...and they gladly accept pets....I stopped in. That was over ten years ago and I have come back each and every year since. Staff is friendly... More

Was greeted by friendly staff at desk. Very nice room. Breakfast was to "die" for. Omelets made to order and all other breakfast items were warm/cold for perfect dining enjoyment. Will definitely stay there again.

After an extended southwest vacation my wife and I were just looking for a one night stop in mid Kansas on the way home to eastern Mo. An outdated gps showed Fossil Creek as an Americinn. Turns out it has not been an Americinn for about two years. A group of local investors has done a very nice remake of... More

The breakfast included a made to order omelet!!! I have to commute past here again in two weeks. I will definitely stay again! So glad we didn't stay at a 'chain'... More

The Fossil Creek Inn is most likely the best hotel in Russell, KS. Structurally the place looks good. The 2nd floor hallway carpet is really worn and should have been replaced a long time ago. The recliner in room 209 had foam padding hanging out of one arm and two good size holes in the other arm, (see photos). The... More

The breakfast is better then what you can get at chain hotel with there hot grill that you can get... More

There are few hotels in this stretch between Kansas City and Denver so there is not much competition to score against. Still, some of the other reviews are way too generous in my opinion. We found this to be a reasonably clean and comfortable hotel with good breakfast, pleasant staff. Nothing amazing - just good quality.
