Our room was clean and comfortable. We ate dinner at the pizzeria next door which we can also recommend. The breakfast in the morning was also quite good. My son also really enjoyed the pool and my husband the hot tub.

Check-in took about 10 min because the woman checking us in couldn't get the system to work. There were old stains on the sheets and some bright red (could be fresh blood or red ink). There was blood on the wall in the shower (above the tile line). It was unfortunate because the rest of the room was really clean.... More

Stumbled upon this hotel on a previous trip through Kansas and liked it so much we made a point of booking there again on a recent trip. It is by far the quietest place we have ever slept, plus has a nice indoor pool and hot tub. In the evenings, there are cookies and popcorn. For breakfast it was the... More

This is a decent place to stop along I-70. I booked a king but it was unavailable when I checked in so I was given a king suite. The room was clean and nice-sized. The room had some age on it, but it has been painted and upgraded along the way. When I entered the room it was 55 degrees... More

Fossil Creek is right off the highway, one of very few options to stop in Russell, Kansas. It is clean and a fine option for a night or two. Rooms are good size and service was good. Do not expect good views as it is literally feet from the road.

This is a good location for a night. It is an old property. The rooms are clean but old. The breakfast in the morning is good the highlight being someone will make you a great, fresh, omelet of your choosing. There is an indoor heated pool.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and felt it was time to share my excellent experience. I would recommend this hotel for any occasion. The accommodations are spacious, modern and clean. The pool, hot tub and sauna are anointing! The staff is friendly. On my recent stay for a hunting trip we were welcomed to a home cooked... More

On our recent cross-country trip, we were surprised to find the Fossil Creek Hotel in little Russell, Kansas was exceptionally clean, nicely decorated, had comfortable beds, and provided a welcome relief from the usual hotel complimentary breakfast... omelets and pancakes made to order! I highly recommend it!

We love this hotel and we didn't even have our grandchildren with us! It is super quiet and one doesn't hear any children or other people. They have a great pool available for the children and also have a great commissary with everything from wine and beer to pizza and ice cream and all at reasonable prices! However, their omelet...

Found this place on the internet and it seemed to have decent reviews, so we tried it. Glad we did. It seems like a fairly new place and it was very clean. They advertise as dedicated to quiet and they achieved their goal. Very comfortable beds, excellent shower and came with a fridge and microwave for around $80 plus taxes.... More
