“Clean and cute motel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The cowboys room is nice and comfortable. Very nice clean Motel. Big fridge, oven, microwave two TV. I love that these rooms are themed and the decorations were pretty neat. I'm sure that I would stay here again.

I stayed for on night at the Elk Run Inn. This is an older motel, small room, however it seems it was newly remodeled. My room had a full size fridge, gas stove and oven, and a microwave with some utensils. The room was clean and comfortable. Also it was dog friendly. I gave it a 4 star as it is not a fancy 5 star hotel but I would not hesitate to stay again.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Each room has a different theme reflecting local items, people or animals. We hope to educate people about NW Colorado while they are here. We hope to see you again if you come through Craig.

Stayed here for one night a couple weeks ago. Had requested the bear room when I made the reservation, but was told it was unavailable at check in and that we would be in the Native American room. I love that these rooms are themed and the decorations were pretty neat. There was a kitchenette and a full size fridge, which was really nice, but other than that the room is sub par. The room was in desperate need of a deep cleaning, the bathroom was TINY, and the TV was small and in an awkward place above the fridge. Overall, it was fine for one night and I love that the rooms are themed, but I'm not sure that I would stay here again.

Thank you for your comments. We strive to keep the rooms clean and apologize if the room you stayed in did not meet your expectations. We will make sure that this rooms is moved to the top of the deep clean list and take care of that. The bathroom size is not something that we can really change, but it is important for guests to know what to expect when they make reservations. Older motels, even those that are extensively remodeled are not for everyone. Thank you for your comments. We are glad that you enjoyed the kitchens as we are unique in that respect.

Had a great "night away" here. Totally reasonably priced, with all kinds of cute kitchy rooms. We stayed in the bear room. Had a great hand made bear themed quilt on the wall, bear paintings and even a bear bedspread. The kitchen was very well appointed, even had a little oven. The bed was comfy, the service was amazing, the room was quiet. We had a great time. I recommend this hotel if you are near craig or on your way to dinosaur national monument with the family, I got a peek a a great family room here too.

Room Tip: Cougar, bear, cowboy, fishing, eagle, hunting, pioneer, elk, ask about a great themed room for a lot...

We stayed at this motel one night on our way home from visiting relatives. The room was super clean, the bed very comfortable and the management friendly and helpful. There was a full kitchen that was actually equipped with everything needed to prepare and eat a meal which was a very nice change from most "kitchenette" places. We have been living in motels for the past 3 weeks so it was a real treat to be able to eat in for a change. We had good Wifi and TV. The bathroom was small but manageable. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

Probably most tourists coming to quiet and non-pretentious Craig - Wyoming are traveling to, or coming from, Yellowstone. The small town does not have special attractions. On our way to Yellowstone we found this Inn a good choice. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room offered no excessive luxury but was otherwise quite complete with kitchenette, fridge, coffee maker e.s.o. The bed was comfortable and the shower was perfect; moreover the room was clean. There were really no clear problems and we liked our one-night stay in this coal-mine city, also considering the price: (2 adults, 1 night) $ 70.83.

I stayed at the Elk Run when hunting in the area last year. It is an older motel that caters to hunters and fishermen and everyone else! The rooms are clean, nicely appointed and quiet, but basic. Most are finished in a motif connected to area history in some way. The rooms and suites are equipped with either full kitchens or kitchenettes including pots, pans, dishes and silverware. It has ample laundry facilities and the motel even has a skinning rack. There is a nice full service grocery store next door. All very convienient for the traveling Elk hunter.

The owners Randy and Cindy are very friendly, accomodating and helpful as are the staff members I've met. The Elk Run Inn is probably the best overall lodging value in the area and they have earned my business in the future.

Room Tip: The motel has rooms with multiple beds and suites with seperate bed rooms. Ask the owners for a reco...
