“Wonderful end to a long day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Russell Inn after a long trip from Thunder Bay. The reception was wonderful and also included a "treat" bag for our family pet. This was the start of a wonderful friendship as the room was very pleasant, clean and actually had two chairs which is unusual in many places we have stayed. After a very quiet evening and sound sleep we went to the restaurant for a really great breakfast in a cheery and spotless environment. Bluntly put - : it was great experience and we will certainly stop there on our next trip through the prairies. Additionally there was a special room rate that saved us at least 30 dollars over the comparable rates at other hotels. There is a pool, slide and workout room and also a great patio with at least three BBQ's. Also, if you have the time, take a trip to the downtown core. It is well worth the effort. Thanks for making our day!!

Room Tip: Access is provided from both interior and exterior which makes loading and unloading very easy.

...It was along the way. We drove by the Russell Inn heading west and stopped next door for some gas. The exterior of the motel was eye catching with its new aluminum siding and little peaked roofs over each door. On the hotel site, is a restaurant with a Pizza Hut as an add on as well as a pub. Sharing the same large lot, there is also a gas station, convenience store, and a beer and wine store. The suites were convenient with a separate living room and sleeping room. Good value. There is a pool and games room, tiny gym and a laundry centre. Even has a big deck outside at the back with patio sets and bbqs. The bed was comfy and the AC quiet and efficient. A word of caution - there is a municipal airport across the field from the Inn. When we stayed there, they were spraying the fields. Lots of airport noise from dawn to dusk!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back and away from Hwy. 16 would be quieter.

I have stayed at the Russell Inn on a yearly basis For the past 23 years. having bean able to watch this company build and expand. Over that period of time it has been a pleasure. Our last stay was simpley the best on our three month tour of Canada.

They gave a healthy discount on the room, provided a $5.00 breakfast vochure for my wife and myself, and when I mentioned that our dog was in our truck the offered a dog bed at no charge if we wanted to keep the dog in our room.

The resraurant has a good healthy menue. There staff are extreamly friendly and the service simply makes you want to forget your travil itinerary and stay with them for an extended visit. The pool, and jym is excellant.

I have been travelling with my business for many years. I have spent many months in hotels and motels across Canada and the USA. The service I get at the Russell Inn is by far well above any standared the hospitality industry has.....

I've stayed at the Russell Inn on business twice, and have had good experiences both times. The rooms are spacious, the wifi easy to use, the rooms very accessible from the parking lot. The food is very good in the restaurant, and the same menu is available in the bar, where you'll find several TVs turned to sports. Be aware it's a country bar, with diverse clientele --- the lads and their F-bombs at one table this May were apparently treated as an everyday occurrence, stick to the restaurant if you want demure behaviour. Haven't had the time yet to try the pool. Very quiet in the rooms at night. There's a gas station, a small Tim's, convenience store, all clustered on the hotel property, and beer vendor across the street --- taken for granted in the city, few and far between on Highway 16. They upgraded my room and my colleague's room to suites at no extra charge so we could be side by side, and there's a $5 coupon included for breakfast.

My husband and I stayed here one night while on a mini ski trip at Asessippi. The hotel is clean, well equipped, and had all the conveniences that I need. We appreciated that it had a restaurant in it, and we were satisfied with all three meals that we had there in our short stay.
My only hesitation when booking was that the pictures looked like the rooms need some updating. The room we had does require a make-over, which the hotel states it is aware of, but it was clean and in overall good condition. The only issue was that the room was really warm when we were going to bed, even though we had turned down the heat. We were able to open the window, but our neighbours were smokers and that drifted into our room forcing us to close it.
Overall, it did fit into the little trip that we needed and we would stay there again.
