This hotel had what you look for in a place to stay. The room was clean and we felt safe there. Yes the room was small but it was comfortable and quiet. And it was a very interesting building with that great Western United States historic vibe to it. Much more interesting than staying at any chain hotel.
But checking in was a very bizarre experience. We walked in and went to the front desk where we find a guy sitting at a desk behind a computer who just stared at us. No hello, welcome, or I'll be right with you, just stared. So I asked do you have a room. He replied "yes" and nothing else. We had to pry the privilege of staying at the hotel and he never got up from behind the computer which is about 10 feet from the counter. He even had us read our credit card number out load to him from there. It was just bizarre, so much so that it really took away from what might have otherwise been a great experience at a quaint well kept hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- An historic hotel with modern amenities. Welcome to the wonderful Midland Railroad Hotel. You will find it a delightful blend of historic charm and modern convenience--a place welcoming weary travelers and comfort seekers for over 100 years. When the Midland Railroad Hotel was built in 1899, it was the most magnificent facility in the Midwest, with 28 wonderfully appointed rooms. The Midland Railroad Hotel continues that tradition today, with every room completed renovated and restored back to its original glory, complete with tasteful decor and mission style furnishings. The Midland Railroad Hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places and has won the Kansas Preservation Award for the careful attention given to detail while restoring the facility back to its original state. The trains that once took travelers to the historic hotel are still in operation, with railroad cars passing through this community several times each day--making for an even more memorable experience as you step back into time. ... more less
