While nice looking on the outside and in the lobby the rooms leave much to be desired! Upon checking in we spent the next 15 minutes chasing and squishing black bugs around the floor. The mattress is very old and worn down, quite lumpy with the edges collapsing.

Outside needs some upkeep but our two rooms were clean with new comfy mattresses and the breakfast in the AM was ample. Very nice and helpful staff. Will stay here again en route from SC to CO. Great for the price.

If you need a place to lay your head on the trek between Colorado and Missouri, this is a good place to spend the night. If you want a good breakfast if you aren't looking for any amenities and want a breakfast. It's clean, the bed is comfortable, it comes with breakfast, but is pretty much bare bones besides that.

Arrived late and tired in Russell, found this place by luck. Gave me a great room for the price, which included breakfast and lots of friendly chat. If you are looking for a simple motel, this is the place to go!

Where do I start, if you want to plug in more than one device, not the place to stay. If you want a plug in anything by the desk, not the place to stay. If you like a clock in the room, not the place to stay. If you believe "newly remodeled" means more than a coat of paint and... More

The Russell Inn is a fine place for staying with buddies when you are hunting, but I would never bring my family to stay here. The lobby smelled of smoke, trash was everywhere outside, the rooms needed lots of updating, mildew in the shower, sink drain that was super slow, etc etc. When we arrived the room was missing a...

Our Grandparents (maybe in your case great-grands) went into town and stayed at a hotel where the porter took their suitcases up to the room. Then our parents (like on a honeymoon) went to the roadside motel and pulled their car right up next to their room. Today there are the motel chains where you drive up, park, and walk... More
