“Always a wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Over the past year, I have stayed at the Russell Inn over a dozen times and have found each time to be a wonderful experience. The rooms are nice and clean, beds comfortable, and the price is right! The owners are wonderful and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Everyone who works at the hotel is helpful and friendly and makes the experience even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. If you are traveling and need a nice, clean, and quiet place to get some rest, the Russell Inn is the place to stay.

Our motel room did not look like what is pictured above. Our room was very outdated, including: the bedspread, entertainment center/tv, bathroom (which had the sink on the outside, in the same room as bed with toliet and tub/shower in own room..not to mention the shower curtain was a kids curtain covered in cartoon fish) Needless to say the whole room needed an update.

We stayed for a week and felt the room was very overpriced due to the room being outdated and the doors being on the outside of motel. We were also not impressed with the front desk as they were not friendly.

The only good thing to say about this motel is the cleaning staff was very friendly.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Generally we have found the reviews on tripadvisor "right on". However, we were very disappointed with the accommodations we found at the Russell Inn. So many little things were not up to standard in the room that, if this is the best motel in Russell, I would suggest staying in Hays or Salina. The sink was stained and the stopper was missing, the wall switches and surrounding walls were very dirty, the bottom sheet had old blood stains, and the breakfast was disappointing. At least we found shrink wrapped chocolate covered cake rolls a strange choice for breakfast! The bath towels were larger than a hand towel, but not by much, with a thread count a long way from "fluffy".

Ive stayed in the Fairmont Hotel in San Fran - famous for its ritzy high class and customer service- but the Rusell Inn's staff is the sincerely nicest couple I have ever run across in my many nights of hotel stays. I will definitely be back. They are wonderful folks!!

Our crew of 60 were fortunate to stay at Russell Inn. We have never had the awsome customer service at any other hotel. The service was beyond comprehension. They accomodated everyone and made them feel "welcome" at all times. The rooms were excellent, the service "perfect" and the owners and staff were so kind and friendly. The personal service can not be matched anywhere. I know we will return when we are in this area again.

Room Tip: The pool view is super!

This motel is an incredible value for the cost. They actually treat you as a friend, not a paying guest. Beds are comfortable and room was very clean. We will stay there time and again. The owners are hard working folks who WANT you to be comfortable and return. Such a nice change from the national chains.

I enjoyed my time at the Russell Inn. Everything was clean and fresh. The breakfast was great; it offered many options including french toast and fresh fruit. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I observed another guest thanking a staff member for the offer and action of driving them to a local car repair shop. I thought that was very kind of the worker, who I believe may be the owner of the hotel.
