This was a very good place to stay! It was clean and smelled good. The breakfast was above your standard hotel breakfast! Had a grill with made to order eggs and omelettes. The pool was bigger than your standard hotel pool. My only suggestion is.. Russell doesn't have a lot of places to eat, so if you are coming from... More

Driving 3 days with our old cat (20 years old) and tried a new route from our summer to winter home. Booked on line based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Convenient access, clean hotel, spacious room and comfortable bed.

This is a well run hotel with rooms available at reasonable prices. The hotel is independent and thus it is easier to call them than try to reserve on a website. The hotel offers popcorn and cookies in the evening and a good breakfast including made to order omelets in the morning. Rooms are large and comfortable and come in... More

Friendly staff, clean comfortable room, and breakfast omelettes were great! Coffee was excellent. Pool open til midnight. Only complaint would be the wimpy pool towels. We had a very enjoyable stay. Would recommend to anyone travelling nearby.

Beautiful lobby, nice rooms, great pool, really nice hot tub. Great breakfast. They have an omelette chef. You can pick the ingredients you want in your omelette and she fixes it right up! Very quiet even though it is right off the interstate.

Made my reservation in advance with "reservation" due to other reviews (apparently from former name) I had seen online. Well, the other reviews were definitely wrong. This is a very clean hotel, rooms are nicely appointed, and very comfortable beds (although it is hard to get in bed on one side to to air conditioner unit). The breakfast buffet is... More

Despite the directions from Google, the Fossil Creek Hotel was very easy to find. In fact, right on the interstate 70. I had my doubts at first. It definitely was a different chain motel property by its looks, but had been converted to a more private property. Part of the main sign was ripped from strong winds, but the rest... More
