My family and i were returning to Denver from a raod trip when my car broke down. This was the closest cheapest place i could find. The staff were so friendly and helpful and eager to help my family. The breakfast was amazing. Nothing fancy by any means but it is a great place to stay. Will stop by next... More

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

Given the reviews of this property, I expected more. The people who run the place seem nice, but the property is run down, needs a deep cleaning and to have wallpaper and ceiling tiles replaced. The beds were fine. Drapes facing the courtyard didn't close fully, peeling wallpaper, sticky carpet, dirty misaligned ceiling tiles, dirty tub and sink.

While driving through Kansas I saw signs for the Russell Inn coming into Hays, since we needed a place to stay for the night, and I like the mom and pop motels better than the chains, I called and they had rooms available. I reserved one over the phone and she didn't even want my credit card number, which was... More

Front desk staff are clueless and not helpful. Restaurant is the worst in Manitoba. Food is expensive and inedible. Rooms are nice. Clean. Too expensive for the terrible service though. There are not a lot of options in this area. I suggest a bed and breakfast instead.

I don't stay at cheap motels, but this was pretty disappointing. We usually stay in a another hotel 20 minutes away when we have trips from KC to Denver, but I wanted to give this a shot. I have no idea where people are staying that consider this place to be "twice as nice" as big name places, but this... More
