My wife and I attended the high school reunion at the Elgin. This included the ballroom buffet and 3 nights. We had a wonderful time. Place is so relaxing and workers are friendly. We ate one night at the Parlor restaurant. If I had any complaint it was the limited menu. Had a 1/2 # hamburger that was good but would have preferred more choices. One suggestion would be to make it a bbq and open up more to public attention and frequency of openings. They were good about changing towels daily. We enjoyed the open kitchen for hot drinks in morning. They had a coffee house right across the street but it is closed now, looking forward to opening again. Enjoyed the streaming tv stations. They have a fitness center and rec room but did not use these this time. Beds and a/c were comfortable and the bathroom we had included a spa tub which was nice.

This was our third time staying at the Elgin Hotel, and it didn't disappoint! The food at Parlour 1886 was delicious. We both had the pork chop and it was perfectly cooked. This time we brought friends and they were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, history, and reasonable prices. We will definitely be back!

excellent is all aspects! A gem in rural KS! The add on packages are a good value. The food of the attached restaurant had amazing desserts. The breakfast had an extensive assortment of loose leaf teas, which is not common anywhere!

We absolutely loved the place. Everyone was so friendly. The hotel is beautiful. Would recommend anyone to stay there. We ate in the parlor and the food was fantastic and the staff was wonderful. Thanks for a wonderful experience. If we ever pass through again we will look into staying there again

A historic building with great period antiques, accommodations were very comfortable and the hotel was spotless! A home away from home, quiet, and like staying with friends and family. The room was nicely appointed and public areas were varied and cozy.
