4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The place doesn't look good from the front. The entry door had cracked glass and some cosmetic attention is needed on the outside. Don't let that put you off. The bed was comfortable, the A/C quiet, the bathroom clean, and the wireless bandwidth was good. There were some stains on the carpet, but so what? As budget accommodations, the Russell... More

I'm very picky and found this hotel to be clean, comfy and super cheap. It was also pretty quiet. There is a liquor store down the street which is a bonus after a long drive. I would stay there again.

Having stayed at many new motels on our travels, I'll admit to being a bit leery of a remodeled one. The room was clean and comfortable. I liked the artwork with pheasants and the overall western feel to the public area. The breakfast of biscuits and gravy was nice but I wish there had been some sort of protein in... More

We were traveling from Denver to Joplin for the Fourth of July weekend but couldn't leave until after work. We knew we couldn't drive straight through so we found this hotel that was about half way and I booked 2 rooms. I called them TWICE in the four previous days to let them know that we would be arriving between... More

The hotel is very cute, the personnel is very welcoming and the price is kept at a reasonable level. It is the cheapest hotel around here, and there are not so many. We needed a place were to crash for the night and this was our best option. The manager gave the best room at the price of a normal... More

This place was perfect for what we needed: a very short stop on our way home from Denver. The room was clean and comfortable, free breakfast was better than at hotels that cost twice as much (biscuits/gravy, waffles, great coffee, cereal and fruit). Only complaint was the bathroom needed some maintenance. We also only got 2 towels which wasn't a... More

I'm easy to please. Give me a hotel with a reasonable price, clean, cared for, good location, great bed and adequate breakfast and I'm satisfied. This hotel hit all these requirements so I left well rested and happy. Many hotels have tiny cramped breakfast rooms. This hotel had a nice large seating area. There was, at all times, a very...

I'm not sure where the motel or rooms were that show up in the pictures but I did not find it. Admittedly we got to the place very late after a long day of driving. I did appreciate that there was still a clerk at the desk. He was fairly friendly if a little slow getting us checked in. However,... More

Not sure who wrote the glowing reviews BUT let me begin by saying the picture on web site not even close to what we got. Pool was dirty. When I asked about it I was told they painted half of it and just filled it. Why would you drain the pool and paint part of it? The room was dirty,... More

Dear Laura S, We're sorry your stay wasn't more enjoyable. We are under new management and working very hard to make improvements. As far as the pool goes, it was drained in the Fall, due to the Kansas winters, and we made great efforts to improve the pool and still have it open for the season. The weather can be... More

Nice and clean room - appeared to be updated on inside. The outside is a little shabby - daughter was a little unsure about it as it wasn't very well lit at nite. The young man at desk was very nice & pleasant. The waffles & coffee in the morning were good - & it was a very quiet room.... More
