Overall, this hotel was okay. The room was spacious, very clean, and quiet. The main problem was with the air conditioner. The room was a little warm, and when we tried to lower it using the thermostat, it wouldn't change. It stayed at 76 degrees, no matter what we did. It made getting a good night's sleep difficult. I did... More

This was a great choice for an overnight stay. Very clean, definitely better than average for the price, and the made-to-order omelet was a treat! Would not hesitate to stay here again. At least 3 restaurants in short walking distance.

Lovely hotel. It had a very homey feel. The room was nice and smelled fantastic. The pool was large and had a great hot tub. It also had a small splasher pool for toddlers. Breakfast was huge, lots of options including an omelet bar. I recommend it over anything we saw once we drove through Hays.

This hotel is clean, and the staff is terrific. It has a huge pool, a big baby pool, and a large hot tube all open until midnight. The complimentary breakfast offers both hot and cold items as well as eggs to order. I highly recommend this hotel.

I had planned on staying in Hayes, KS but was having a hard time finding a room and decided to drive into Russell and find a room there. Fossil Creek was highly rated on Trip Advisor and they had a room available. I arrived after 10:00 p.m. and the young lady at the front desk was very helpful and kind.... More

Very nice place! Free wifi, free breakfast, and the breakfast is AMAZING. Friendly staff, very clean rooms, and cheap pricing. Gorgeous views, but watch your credit cards. The place said that they only need a card on file for damage reasons in case you had to pay, but then they charged our acct after we paid cash which they refuse... More

My family had the opportunity to have excellent service on the evening of May 22. The lady working the overnight shift (Tammy?) helped us check in when we were forced to stop at 2 AM with a toddler with a upset stomach. Not only was she friendly and courteous, she offered to run a load of laundry for us so... More

If you're traveling through Kansas on I-70, and need to stop, make it a point to stay there. The rooms and all of the property are clean, they have a breakfast bar that is amazing, the cook makes your food to order in front of you.
