-Clean, spacious rooms with everything you need (fridge, microwave, etc.) -Very inexpensive -Genuinely kind management and staff, GOOD people -Within walking distance of several restaurants, liquor store, gas station, etc. Was stuck in Russell for over a week getting my truck motor replaced during a road trip and found a diamond in the rough here.

I travel all over the country for work, rarely staying in one place more then a day or two. When I did a motel search of western Kansas this place didn't even show up. I saw their sign on the interstate and decided to give them a try. I've stayed in some pretty cheap and lousy rooms over the years,... More

Stayed at the Russell Inn recently for four days while touring Kansas. The motel, although older, is a good value but might not be for everyone. The motel is showing its age. It could need a paint job and a spruce up. But, when you look at the size of the property, that would be very expensive! I found the... More

Have you ever done a whole day's cleaning, packing and hitting the highway later in the day than you planned and finding out how tired you are? Then you will understand that at a point all you want is a clean bed, a door that locks and a clean private bathroom. That is all I was looking for and I... More

The place waS old and needed MAJOR upgrades but the friendliness of the owner and his family certainly made up for it! The location was good and provided easy access to the freeway to continue my trip the following day.

The staff was nice, but the rooms are not nice. We stayed only one night and then quickly moved to another hotel. The price was low - so if on a budget - it might be worth it, but it would have to be the last resort before I'd stay there again.

The manager of this place makes it what it is. Fantastic service! We called for service and had the manager in our room only five minutes later. The place is super-clean and affordable, too. We'll be staying here next time we're in Russell...this weekend!

This place was laughably gross. Tattered curtains that didn't cover the windows, 20 year old paint, a toilet in which the seat had obviously been substituted from a different toilet. One towel was provided for the room. And the breakfast served was ho-hos and assorted items bought from walmart. I have some serious doubts about the veracity of other reviews... More

Traveling on I-70, I saw the billboard for Russell Inn so I decided to stop. As soon as I stepped in the lobby, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. Decoration of the lobby area and service at the front desk impressed me to stay at the motel. Before paying, I requested to check the room and without hesitation the manager... More
