The breakfast was great fresh omlet, biscuits and gravy, and waffles. I had to leave early in the morning before 6 am and they was so very nice to let us have breakfast early. The room was clean. The bed was very comfortable and different pillows was available.

This is as perfect a hotel as you're going to find particularly given the location. Clean room, friendly service, room is quiet, it's spacious, and the breakfast was delicious. My dog was very comfortable too. I hesitate giving this establishment such high praise because I want them to continue offering great rates and having availability if I ever need to... More

We reserved two rooms a month in advance requesting connecting rooms for a family Thanksgiving vacation. I called four times after making my on-line reservation talking to different staff members making sure they understood we wanted connecting rooms. I was assured it was possible and taken care of. When we arrived our two rooms were not even on the same... More

We booked two rooms with an adjoining door. Called in 2 times to confirm the rooms had an adjoining door. When we got to the hotel in the late afternoon to check in, they had not saved us the rooms we had reserved. They didn't even have rooms on the same floor! They would do nothing to help us with...

Each time I visit Russell, I stay at Fossil Creek Inn. The rooms are very nice and well maintained, the staff is great and the indoor pool/spa and exercise room are a big plus! The breakfast in the morning is a step up from most hotels of this type, in that they have a person manning a portable grill to... More

My husband and I stayed here last night and we are very pleased that we chose this place. We were driving from Colorado and it was getting late and we were getting tired and I started looking online for a place to stay. We originally were going to stay in Salina, KS but almost all of the hotels were full... More

Awesome! Everything is clean, updated, breakfast is great and complete with an omelet bar. The gym is complete and well maintained. The service is always fantastic.Ive spent two months here accumulative. For the business traveler trying to negotiate rates, go straight to a man named Brent. The manager (a blonde I didn't feel the need to name) is rude and... More
