The signature massage package was amazing!! The spa staff couldn't have been nicer. Be sure to take the ghost tour at night. Jay the tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the hotel & happenings.

Good clean room. Very comfortable bed. Staff was friendly. Meeting space was good although the meeting rooms were a bit small. The grounds are beautiful. No paranormal activity was experienced but the stories were fun.

We come here twice a year for the spa and indoor lap pool. Very relaxing. Only problem I have ever had is trying to get reservations by phone so that I could also reserve a session at the spa. After being put on hold for 10 minutes, I was told that reservations staff were too busy right now to talk... More

I stayed at the Elms as a Mother's day present with my daughter. We got the haunted hotel tour package. I called to make the reservation and was told that the charge would be $179.00. When we checked in I paid for the room immediately but it wasn't $179.00 it was $199.00. I paid it without saying anything because there... More

When you can stay in your home town with family, we stay with our other family. The staff of the Elms Hotel. They make me and my family feel at home and make accomodations for me in any way. I have a bike, no problem they store it for me. Great people from the ground keepers to the head manager.... More

Came here for a conference, definitely not your usual sterile hotel! Love being surprised by a place that has charm and character. Room was comfortable, cozy, had everything I needed. I would stay here again.

Elms has excellent staff and it's a fun place to go. Not too far from Kansas City where we went to the World War I museum. Years ago we went to The Elms for the indoor swimming pool. They have really made some improvements with the renovation and it shines! Had two rooms booked and enjoyed the history that one... More

This is the third time I have stayed at the Elms. My dog and I drive to Phoenix every year to spend a month with my parents. This year we spent our first night and our last night of our road trip there. The first night we got an upgrade to a wonderful suite on the 3rd floor. The beds... More

I was here for the day only, at the spa. Spotlessly clean, with everything thought of in the locker room, nice robes and flip flops provided for the day, and fresh towels available everywhere. There is a relaxing room to wait for your service, with teas, waters and snacks- trail mix, biscotti, all good quality, and very nice lounge chairs... More
