I recently came home to Fort Scott on leave and spent 10 days at the Courtland. Frank & Cheryl are excellent hosts. My room was squeaky clean and extremely comfortable. No trip to historic Ft. Scott is complete without a stay at the Courtland. It is within strolling distance of most of the towns historical attractions and over a half... More

The Courtland was originally a 19th century railroad hotel and has been lovingly restored by former and current owners. It has a tremendous amount of charm and the manager has a wealth of local information. There is no elevator or pool, but there is a lot of history and architectural beauty. The hotel also includes a full service spa. Certainly... More

We stayed in Fort Scott KS on Friday night, It is an old railroad hotel that has been fixed up. The staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 1, it was one of the bigger rooms, and the attached bath was ok, but had a couple things I would change, the inn keepers said they are slowly redoing... More

My daughter & I stayed her for a mother - daughter weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our visit! We had the room with one full and one twin size bed, and as others mentioned, it was small. But it was so clean, so charming and so comfortable - that "small" didn't matter! It was decorated as it may have been in... More

Great place to stay rooms are small but the history of why is awesome. The innkeepers are knowledgeable about the history of the building and area and go out I the way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. So many updates to bring a piece of history to modern day. Hope to come back many times.

A very friendly and helpful innkeeper. Spacious rooms. Clean and well kept. The hotel was built long ago as a place for people to stay who were passing through on the rail road. We could hear train whistles ... but hey didn't bother. It's part of the atmosphere. Today the hotel's been restored. New it's not and the age shows... More

I was absolutely impressed by my stay at the Courtland Hotel. Before I even arrived, I received a voice mail concerning my arrival time. It was a very personal touch. At arrival, I was stunned to see this was an older inn with a lot of charm and history. The owner was extremely friendly and showed me to my room.... More

My husband and I had an excellent overnight stay at the Courtland Hotel. From the time we checked in, the owner, Frank was very welcoming and accomodating. Our room was comfortable and very clean. I highly recommend this establishment for a time in Fort Scott.

This is a historic hotel that has been renovated. Our room was decorated very cute and was comfortable. Frank, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit small and I would have found it difficult to stay more than 1 night. No elevator, so be prepared to climb stairs. There are several restaurants within walking distance.
