I understand that the city took this motel over after the previous owner left. It's a pretty nice motel, but the halls are very uncomfortable because of not being air conditioned. The mattress in our room was alright on one side, but broken on the other. The room was clean, breakfast was very good. The area were we had breakfast... More

We booked this hotel to attend a funeral. We were very please with the accommodations. Everything was pleasant, from check in to check out. Family members and children enjoyed the pool, kiddie pool, hot tub and sauna. Although for breakfast we had to locate the cook to make our omelets, we were very please with the breakfast fair that was... More

Our tour directer said Heather was very helpful with the trip planning. We were given a conference room in the evening so we could have a group activity. We got "warm" cookies and popcorn, refilled several times. They had a small selection of goodies and my husband got his ice cream. The rooms were clean and large enough but the... More

What a great surprise in the small town of Russell, Kansas. This is not the least expensive choice but a very clean and well kept hotel with a better than average breakfast. Enjoyed the quiet the hotel offered, along with a comfortable room with great air conditioning. The breakfast included a cooked to order omelet which was so delicious. Recommend... More

We stayed here 1 night in our way west after reading positive reviews on trip advisor. It is really in a very remote part of Kansas. (If you want a good chain hotel you need to stay in Salina or go further to Hays). If you are in this area,this is a good choice. The rooms are average size and... More

We were in the middle of Kansas last weekend and the major brand hotels were fully booked. This one was available and had decent reviews so we decided to give it a try. We had a double queen room and it was huge. The bathrooms were very clean and had double sinks that helped us speed up getting ready to... More

This is a good hotel, really is clean, nice reception area, confortable. I was not expecting much but it turned out a good, above average stay. The breakfast has an omelette bar, I did not try but I think it is a good additional service. Some details, carpets on the hallways are old, the gym has a lot of equipment... More

This hotel is very conveniently located and has a lot to offer. We really appreciate a nice place that is pet friendly rather than getting stuck in some trashy hotel just because we are traveling with our little dog (he's family too). They did charge $10 for the dog, but it's worth it to us. This place has it all....the... More

This is our second trip to Russell and second stay at this hotel. Its clean, the staff are wonderful, and the breakfast was delicious too! They have someone staffing the "made to order" grill in the mornings where you can have omelets, pancakes or french toast. yum! There was a huge party going on that was extremely loud one floor...
