We travel for business at least 3 wks out of the month. So we basically live in motels. We are always looking for value, cleanliness, and friendly folks. This place has it all. The kitchen is a plus with us being away from home so much it's nice to be able to have a home cooked meal.

Was very pleasantly surprised by this motel. The room (should say "rooms" since our suite had 2 large separate bedrooms) was very large and comfortable. Having a real kitchen was a great plus. Although you can tell that this is an older facility, it is very obvious that the owners take pride in maintaining the facility and keeping everything clean. We had no issues during our stay, but I'm confident the staff would have promptly resolved them for us. If you don't want to spend the money to stay in one of the chain hotels in Craig, this is by far the best lower-cost option in town - and, believe me, there are some other lower-cost options in Craig that would have to pay me to stay!

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have 2 entrances, but it was very handy to be able to use the back entrance th...

we were shown 2 rooms, both were cozy and had full kitchens. nicely decorated. the room we chose had 2 queens and 2 twins - plenty for a traveling family. nice large flat screen TV, and fully decorated with Elk motif. the rooms were very clean and comfotable. no fitness center or pool, but we weren't looking for them. the price was reasonable. just being an overnite stay, we did not utilize the kitchen except for making coffee. but if we were going to stay a few days, this would be the place! convenient to grocery store and pharmacy if needed. centrally located for convenience.

We also offer different sized rooms for different needs from small one bed rooms to the larger room that you were in. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

If you want a new motel with a huge room, this is not the place to stay.

If you want a clean, comfortable room with a kitchen, full size refrigerator, ceilng fan, and decorated in "elk" motif, then you will find this an excellent choice.

As a single traveller, the room was ideal. If there are two of you, it will be cozy. If there are more than two, it will be crowded. However, the kids will love the decor. I smiled when I walked into my room.

The front desk attendant was very pleasant and helpful. He gave me a quick overview of the town's dining establishment choices without being asked.

The room rate was very reasonable. If you are headed toward Steamboat Springs 30 miles to the east, you might want to take advantage of lower room rates here. If you want a large expensive luxurious room with jacuzzi, keep driving! This motel does not have a pool, fitness center or free breakfast either.

I carried my luggage 10 feet from the car to the room. This motel is typical of motels one would find in the 1960's throughout the country, a bit nostalgic for this writer.

My brother and I stayed here this summer. The staff was cordial and there were no surprises at check in. The property was clean and rooms were nicely furnished. I left a charging cord in the room and received a personal phone call from the owner the next day. He offered to hold the charger for me in case I was returning through Craig, or shipping it to my home. The charger was shipped to my home and I was not asked to pay the shipping. This was above and beyond customer service. I will stay there again.

Through the use of tripadvisor before traveling to Craig, I decided to try the Elk Run Inn because I had not at all been impressed with the other places I've stayed in the past. Good Choice!

This is a quaint little motel which is just simply a different and neat place to stay. The service was great at the front desk and the room was priced right. You don't ever quite know what to expect when you visit older smaller motels so you basically just hope for the best and this turned out to be a very pleasant surprise for us.

Upon entering the room we started smiling from ear to ear with the "cowboy" & "western" decorations all over the room. Our room was basically a two bedroom with a kitchenette (with a full size fridge and ice made in the freezer!) and of course a bathroom and it was ALL clean! There was a television for each bed too!

I'm now looking forward to the next time I find myself needing to go to Craig because I now know of a place to stay that I can also look forward to.

Room Tip: Look at the photos uploaded by patrons of the motel - and if you're still not sure, have them sh...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our motel. It is not always easy to attract customers to smaller non-chain hotels in this day and age. Thank you for giving people an idea of what to expect and we hope to live up to your praise. All of our rooms have a different theme, reflecting the heritage of our area. We look forward to seeing you the next time you are in town.

Good value, we were in the wolf room it was quite a small room but lovely and clean and it had a kitchen that we used to cook ourselves a meal as we didn't see anywhere in craig that appealed to us. Reception staff friendly and helpful. We just needed somewhere decent to rest up on our trip between Grand Teton and Ouray, we were happy with our choice.
