Frank the owner was friendly and helpful. Location is close to everything historic Fort Scott. Even though it's an old hotel, the bathroom in each room were clean and modern. Air in each room. And beds are comfy. Sarah gave a great massage to my wife and I. Will stay here again.

We stayed in December 2014 actually. Our room ( I think it was #5 ) was too small for us, we had two kids, but the other rooms were taken. It was not too clean (old carpet, old sheets), and the extra mattress they provided us to throw on the floor should have been put in a dumpster. Its springs... More

Cozy room. Not part of a chain. Within walking distance of the Fort in historic Ft. Scott and the Saturday morning Farmers Market. Would be a great place to stay for a weekend getaway. Next time it's on our list to try the spa for a relaxing massage.

On my road trip though out the US and Canada this was the best place I stayed. The owners made me feel very comfortable and it felt like home. The Courtland Hotel was like stepping back in time, as I was shown to my room I received a history lesson about the facility it was awesome. Breakfast the next morning... More

Fort Scott is a wonderful town and the Courtland Hotel helped with that experience. Courtland Hotel is in the perfect location as it is close to historic Ft. Scott and it's beautiful downtown scenery. If you are headed to the Fort Scott area, consider the Courtland Hotel as your number one option.

We stopped there one night . Guy greeted us very warm welcoming and friendly . Told us history about the hotel. Beds are little to small for tall people but very comfortable. In the morning you ca eat at the cafeteria downstairs. I recommend this hotel.

We loved this hotel, within walking distance of the original Ft. Scott as well as several restaurants. The owner is friendly and knowledgeable of the local history. I highly recommend this hotel. Wi-Fi was great and the fireplace is a nice touch.

Love the lobby and historic feel of the hotel. Rooms are small but if you are traveling alone or just with your spouse, they work. I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Fort Scott. Great location next to a few nice restaurants and bars.
