Beautiful place to stay, a walk back in time with modern conveniences. Breakfast was excellent as well. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Staff very hospitable and helpful. Restaurant on premises was good. Off street parking. Very comfortable beds with amazing linens. You can't help but feel pampered here.

The Inn is well located, just across from Fort Madison and a train museum, which made for educational fun for the 5 year old in the group. Breakfast, which the chef - there is no other word - had ready at our convenience, was exquisite.

We got to our room. Lovely, clean. Looked out the window to the beautiful Mississippi River and noticed some trains going by. Oh my gosh....they ran all night long and blared their horns. Never stay in room 205. It was a nightmare. Surely they have had other guests complain. There was no one at the front desk to help us.... More

I have stayed @ the Kingsley several times. I never cease to be amazed that there is such a first rate hotel in this little river town. Treat yourself and stay @ the KIngsley. The staff @ hotel are great hostesses. They have first hand knowledge to the Fort Madison area and the history of the hotel itself. They encourage... More

A might pricey but if you're a railfan and like a view of the Great Mississippi River there is no better place. Front staff decent and rooms are great-from a era long past. Breakfast is typical for an inclusion but along the lines of self serve.

The rooms are amazing. Very clean. Everything works. Good Internet service. Recently refurbished in period appropriate antiques, it is beautiful. Like sleeping in a museum. It does have its own restaurant and while expensive, the food was excellent. Still, they were sold out of everything we ordered off the menu, But for some reason they would not tell us what... More

Stayed here on my trip to Fort Madison with my boyfriend, it was very nice. The rooms were clean and spacious and they had just opened a very nice bar next to the inn so it was convenient to pop out and get a drink. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's not the cheapest place but not too expensive... More

The Kingsley Inn was a marvelous place to stay. I loved the antiques, the view of the Mississippi River and the very helpful staff. Connected to the Kingsley Inn is the Atlas Restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff very helpful. A big shout-out to Tim who a most attentive host.

Took a tour during the Fort Madison Barly Hop and I must say it was amazing. All the rooms were different and the place is immaculate. A must stay if you are coming to Fort Madison. Business, pleasure,small reception. This place has it all.
