Cheryl and Frank were very welcoming and gave us a small tour of the hotel complete with lots of history facts, which I was very interested in. Cheryl made us feel at home and made sure we had everything we needed. My daughter was pleased with the wi-fi setup and the mini-fridge hiding in a cabinet.

My son and I stayed at this hotel in July 2015. We were traveling from Missouri to Nebraska and Fort Scott seemed like a good stopping point. We contacted the owners in advance as we knew that we'd be arriving late. The management was very receptive and welcoming. They've done a nice job restoring the establishment (that dates back to...

Cheryl and Frank are truly amazing and talented. The level of service is absolutely amazing, and more than makes us up for the quaint size of a few of the rooms. The Spa is wonderful, and the staff are very good at what they do!

What a great stay. Enjoyed the time we had there. Would recommend to anyone going to Fort Scott. Right downtown close to everything. Frank the owner was very knowledgeable about the area made you feel welcomed and at home.

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
