Quiet, Clean and peaceful - and about the most comfortable bed I've slept on in a long time!
Was once again in the Flint Hills and had another opportunity to stay at the Millstream.
Stayed in the cabin and enjoyed coffee on the porch each morning with the wonderful company of the big 'ol six toed cat that lives there!
Peaceful sounds of the Cottonwood River as it splashes over the dam....what a nice place to get away from it all!

Room Tip: All the rooms have their own personality. All are clean and quite. I will say that I'm partial...

What a neat find! We stayed in a beautifully decorated room with a very comfortable bed, plus a refrigerator and microwave. There is a full size coffee pot in the room, with coffee, etc. to make. The location is great - you can walk to the best restaurant in town in under 5 minutes and see the historic courthouse as well.

Room Tip: We stayed in a room, but they have cabins too for a little more money. They also have adjoining roo...

Was fortunate to spend two nights at the Millstream Resort Motel. The motel is close to the Cottonwood River and falls, the sound of which lent further tranquility to a peaceful lovely spot. The owners have taken special pride in the decor of each room, including artwork and bed linens that are like sleeping on a cloud! This is an experience that we definately intend to repeat. The motel, coupled with the most charming Cottonwood Falls town/townspeople will call us back for a piece of pie at the Emma Chase Cafe, a tranquil walk on the footbridge overlooking the river/falls, and an ambiance of simple fine peaceful living. I can't wait for my next stay!

Room Tip: Highly recommend getting a room that has access to the long deck on the backside of motel. You will...

Spent one night in the cabin at the Millstream Motel. Very peaceful and relaxing. Everything we needed for the night. Quiet and comfy. Love the decor. The owners are extremely helpful and live on the property, accessible at all times. Ate dinner in town at the Grand Central Hotel. So good! Great surprise in this sleepy little town! Plan to return to enjoy the bluegrass at the Emma Chase Cafe. See you there!

Room Tip: Cabin is separate from the motel rooms, but the rooms have an upstairs deck overseeing the river and...

We had a very restful evening in the Cabin for this nice place. Very quiet and out of the way, staff was friendly and helpful.
We'd certainly go back, for a day or two to "drop out of sight."
Facilities are rustic, comfortable, and bed was great. Very satisfied.

Since we wanted to camp near the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve (south of Council Grove), but changed our minds given the incredible heat wave (106 each day in the Midwest, and violent storms off and on), we chose this nearby place in spite of the (for us) cost ($86 in 2012). Our main criteria for the budget hotels where we usually stay when exploring the U.S. are these: low-to-mid-price; very clean; all amenities function well and none are broken; good hot water rapidly available; ambient noise minimal; beds fairly comfortable (we like them firm); WiFi highly desirable. This hotel satisfies most of these criteria, but is slightly overpriced for the quality. Everything is a little dated (furniture, bed, bath & sink), which we expected in a tiny town, but there are nice touches: a lovely setting with many birds at the feeders; two-room suite with fan in “parlor;” a little terrace on the river-side; microwave & fridge (we did not use). WiFi was intermittent, weak. It is however only 15 minutes to the Tallgrass Prairie, where we wanted to be in early morning (before dawn) and at dusk—by far the best times to explore and photograph. Owners of the resort are friendly and fun to chat with; and cats are also (but they are less talkative).

Room Tip: Quiet spot, no need to worry about traffic noise. Reserve in advance, it's popular.

The Millstream Motel in Cottonwood Falls, Kansas was a wonderful way to spend a night and part of the day to relax and get away from it all. I stayed in the detached cabin on the property and I felt I had the place to myself! I enjoyed the area in the evening, eating at Ad Astra in Strong City, KS and walking around in the town and just enjoying the small town environment. Then I slept late and then got up, enjoyed a cup of coffee in my cabin, and wrote and read sitting on the wonderful front porch looking over the river.
