We came to Russell KS for a family event and couldn't be more pleased with this hotel. We have two little ones (1yr and 3yr) so traveling can be quite a chore. We were early but they were able to get us checked in within 30 minutes. The rooms were clean and all have a mini fridge and microwave which... More

This is a nice, clean place and a Godsend when all the hotels in Hayes are full at 1 in the morning. Russell is only 30 minutes from Hayes and I'm pretty sure we paid less here than we would have in Hayes. Room was clean. Breakfast included, with a lady making fresh omelets to order. And the staff are... More

Traveling with our 2 dogs makes finding a good hotel challenging. In all my years, I have yet to have found one better than this. Has an elevator, complimentary cooked to order omelet breakfast, fridge and micro in rooms, and all the other expected amenities of a 3-4 star hotel. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially to... More

We called ahead and they saved a room for us on a snowy trek across country. The front desk woman was very nice and efficient. She was baking cinnamon rolls even. Here supervisor is lucky to have her. My hats are off the breakfast crew. They were working their tails off and I certainly noticed and appreciated what they did... More

Stayed 1 night with my hubby and 3 kids. Rooms were nice and clean with pretty comfortable beds. The indoor pool was great for the chilly weather. Everyone enjoyed the plentiful breakfast and I thought the price was reasonable. Highly recommend! P.S. Free cookies and popcorn in the lobby! They were really striving for customer service.

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.
