Reviewed July 26, 2012

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...

Thank you for your kind comments. We try to accommodate our hunters in the fall. All of our rooms have full kitchens. We hope you had a successful hunt and return next year.

We traveled thru Craig Colorado twice on this trip, so we stayed here both times. We all were traveling on Harleys and wanted to stay somewhere where we could walk to a resturant. We found Elk Run Inn to be pretty basic but clean and the owners were very accomodating. Rooms were inexpensive and all had a theme. Clean, with full kitchens, some of the rooms bathrooms were quite small, but since we were just there to get some sleep and get back on the road, it was fine. Beds were comfortable. Coin operated laundry, which is a plus when you are on a motorcycle. They even had a two bedroom, which worked out for a couple and their niece that were traveling with us. We would stay here again.

One of the advantages of being an older location is our downtown proximity. As you found, you can easily walk to different businesses and leave the bikes at the motel. We are in the process of remodeling all of our rooms to have a local theme. Each room is different and represents something that can be found in the Craig/Moffat County area. Thank you for your business and we hope to see you next summer if you come this way.

While an older motel, it was totally clean, bed comfortable, kitchenette & dishes, etc. in good shape. Manager very friendly. Small room, but had table and chairs for eating and apartment-sized fridge. Easy to find and convenient. Would definitely choose it again if went back to Craig.

The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the price was reasonable. We had a room on the first floor of a separate unit with a full kitchen. This is an older motel, but our room was updated and the air conditioner is a newer model and very quiet. The room was small, but not uncomfortably so. Cable TV and wifi were provided and worked very well. We would definitely stay here again when traveling through here and we can recommend this motel to others.
