The Inn was not as clean or as well kept as we had hoped. The inn and room had a musty smell and it felt like it had not recently been attended to, definitely was not made ready for guests. The beautiful old tub had chipping enamel that had been covered with paint. But what made us leave and go... More

Unfortunately our stay was not as good as some of the other reviews. Poision Ivy climbing by the front door has got to go! There were seven of us who rented 3 of the rooms. When Scarlett came to check in on us the night we checked in, we were looking forward to our promised breakfast on the porch. Generally... More

Okay, so it's $20 more per night than the only other decent motel in town. But for $20, breakfast is brought to you, you are not just 1 of 120 guests that night, the location is right downtown & within walking distance of Emporia State, its cute, its comfy, its personal and not corporate. Have I stayed in nicer B&B's,... More

We were visiting William Allen White's house in Emporia and this B&B is perfectly located - just a few minutes walk away. This was certainly not what we would expect from a B&B - this had more of a self catering feel to it and the only way to contact the owners was to call them on your mobile as... More

We travel and stay in Bed/Breakfasts or Hotels 60-90 days per year. I cannot recommend any place any more than the White Rose Inn. The location is ideal to see the sights of Emporia. Scarlett's breakfast casseroles are to die for. We will be back.

I really enjoyed my stay in the Paris Suite - I was only in Emporia for one night and I was a little sad to leave. The White Rose Inn was very close to campus, easy to find, and very friendly. I gave four stars instead of five because I had noisy upstairs neighbors - some noise is understandable with... More

Scarlett L, Owner at The White Rose Inn, responded to this review

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. I apologize for the noisy upstairs neighbors. We had some long term guests stay during our slower period and they ended up working nights. They were at work most of the time but their nights off would have caused some noise to those below them. We have decided because of this we won't... More

Conveniently located near the Emporia State University campus and many restaurants and stores. The Paris suite was compact and charming with books, a reading chair, a TV, a kitchenette nook and a large bed. The bathroom was a little dated. Breakfast was delicious. Since I try to eat mostly a low carbohydrate diet and avoid white flour and sugar, they... More

My two sisters and two cousins took a weekend trip to Emporia KS and stayed at the White Rose Inn. The 2nd floor suite was a great place for such an outing as it provided much room for sleeping, lounging, visiting, and eating. It was also close to downtown shopping which we enjoyed and provided much reminicsing as we shopped... More

My first experience at The White Rose Inn. I stayed in the Romantic Suite. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the whole property. Breakfast was fresh fruit with yogurt, ham and cheese omelet and strawberry bread. The bed was comfortable, with down pillows (6!) and comforter. I toured all of the rooms and all were clean and decorated... More

It is the best hotel in Emporia Kansas. I grew up visiting my grandmother in Emporia and it is by far the best choice. So if you are going to Emporia for whatever reason that maybe (there is nothing to do there) then you might as well go with the White Rose. Unless you like to stay in old moldy... More
