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...

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...

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...

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,...

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,...

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...

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....

Decided to try a different motel in Russell, and it's a winner. Smallish room had very new furniture and a tremendously comfy new bed. Spotlessly clean, only the bathroom revealed the property's age; while worn, it too was very clean and everything worked. Very large and pleasant dining room hosted a typical free breakfast. I'll definitely be back next time...
