We found a nice place to stay on our way to Craig. It's tucked in right off the main street that makes it easy to find next to City Market, but is sheltered from traffic noise by artfully placed landscaping. The staff and family that runs it are helpful, friendly and pleasant. Our room was theme decorated with Moffit County's...

Thank you for taking the time to let other travelers know about your stay. We are pleased that you found the Elk Run Inn to be suitable for your needs. All of our rooms do have hot water heat in addition to the wall unit, if the noise bothers you. Some people just enjoy the white noise that a fan...

For the rate I found this a good option. What I liked most is that they have a little kitchen that is stocked for you. I cooked my dinner a couple of times. Full size refrigerator as well. Rooms do vary on heat. I stayed in two different rooms and one was warmer than the other, but other than that...

Thank you for the review. We are so glad that you were able to use the kitchen and save yourself some money. All of our rooms have wall AC/Heating units if the floorboard heaters do not seem to keep it warm enough in the room for you. All of our rooms are different sizes and are decorated in different themes,...

Hey I was on a 3,100 mile motorcycle trip and this was my stop. It was as advertised big room friendly people simple comfort with good price. Lots of parking available. Can walk to eating places or downtown about 20 min.

My husband & I are retired so look for quality, lower priced hotels when we travel. This is a nice "mom & pop" hotel. Our check-in was friendly & quick. The front desk attendant was very helpful suggesting area restaurants, giving us several to choose from. The room itself was a nice surprise. I wasn't aware that it included a...

We are always grateful to our guest that reach out to let other travelers know about their stay. Thank you for letting us know about the shower curtain. We wash them at least quarterly, but sometimes they need to be taken care of more often. We have already taken care of the one in the room where you stayed. We...

Conveniently located on main thoroughfare, and surprisingly quiet. Even though the room had a full kitchen and there was a grocery store next door, I did not want to cook. The lady at check in was very helpful with a map and restaurant suggestions that were within walking distance and very good. She mentioned all their rooms have themes, and...

My husband and I pulled into Craig, CO after a few hundred miles on a motorcycle - we wanted a clean, comfortable, AFFORDABLE room for the evening. Our room was a double (2 queen beds); the rooms were 'separated' by a kitchen. LOVED the set-up; plenty of room, a REAL kitchen was nice; the laundry facilities were clean and affordable;...

We are so glad that you found us. There are few motels left where people on motorcycles can park in front of their rooms. the comfort of our guests is important to us and we try to think ahead of things they might need. Consider us your home away from home for the next time you come through Craig!

I am so glad we stayed here. Our stay was super and we have no complaints only complements. We enjoyed a step back in time and had fun reminiscing how motels used to be. Our room was neat and tidy. It smelled clean and it was clean. The bed and pillows slept good and the bathroom, while a bit small,...

I booked based on the recommendations of other reviews and was disappointed. Our unit had a full kitchen, stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The unit had WiFi, big screen TV and a DVR. The rooms were compact but clean. City Market and a liquor store all within 1 block. The room did not have an iron or board...

Thank you for the review. Based on what you said, I am assuming that you meant to say that you were NOT disappointed. If there was something that was not up to your expectations, please contact us and let us know. For future reference, we do have an iron and ironing board available for use, just not in the rooms....

This is a well run and well kept motel. We're not sure if every room has a kitchenette, but we stayed in a little room with a kitchenette decorated in the motif of a miner. I needed to ask my wife why there was a cage with a stuffed parakeet in it. She explained that miners used canaries to test...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. It is helpful for your fellow travelers to know what to expect.

We stayed here for one night enroute to Wyoming. It is a very cute, well kept, family run motel (I think it was the owner who checked me in around 10:00 p.m. on the night of our arrival). We stayed in the elk-themed room. The room was configured to include a full kitchen, so you could definitely save money by...
