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 An outdated gps showed Fossil Creek as an Americinn.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 staff was very friendly and kid friendly. The manager (Heather) was very helpful about the things that could be done with the kids to make the motel living very pleasant for the last month and half of staying here. 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.

We stopped in at this hotel because we where unable to find one in the previous towns late at night. The staff was very friendly and the rooms where clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good and you had a great selection of food. If we are passing through again we will definitely stay here again.

I wasn't impressed by this hotel. The decor was tired, as was the popcorn ceiling. This place needs a major redo. We probably wouldn't have stayed here had it not been named as the hotel of choice for our high school reunion. The price was out of line for the accommodations. The hallways were not air conditioned. Where most hotels... More
