Welcome To The Midland Hotel

The Midland Railroad Hotel is a historic hotel and restaurant with modern amenities located in Wilson, Kansas off of I-70. Originally built in 1899 by Philadelphia transplant Wilke Power as the Power Hotel, the Midland Railroad Hotel was once considered among the premier hotels in the Midwest. In 1997, the Wilson Foundation purchased the historic building, and launched six-year, $3.2 million renovation, earning the organization a Kansas Preservation Award for its artistry restoration. The Midland Railroad reopened in 2003 to its 1920s glory and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places since then.

Testimonials

“What a cool spot! The front desk checked us in seamlessly and although we didn’t arrive until about 8:45 we still had time to order a quick bite from the downstairs bar/restaurant and the two guys running it were really friendly about it. We were traveling/moving across the country and had our cat with us which is already stressful – so I was relieved to find this place which made it nice and easy!”
Meggan

Kate & Danny
“Midland really was a hidden gem and a welcome surprise. Don’t go to Wilson for the nightlife but go for the nice people and unique places like Midland. We loved the bar downstairs and the patio out back. ”
Sam
“Easy hotel to stay in. Bedrooms were unique which I liked. Dinner and drinks in the basement was a nice edition since there wasn’t anything else open and we had been driving all day. ”
Hannah
“Awesome place to stay! The communication was super fast and easy check in! Definitely stay here if you are coming through, the building is old and historic and the people are friendly! ”
Alicia
“What a hidden gem. This hotel should get extra stars well beyond 5 for 5 on value, uniqueness, cleanliness, and service. We frequently travel between the Midwest and Colorado along I-70 and stay at the usual Hampton Inn, etc. We were looking for something more unique and this hotel on the National Register of Historic Places delivers. For 1/2 the price of the Hays Hampton Inn it is certainly a far better option. Adding to the ambiance, there is a cool on site restaurant and bar. A continental breakfast is included. We enjoyed all that and would recommend. After a long day of driving, we also enjoyed a stroll around town and seeing sites about Wilson’s Czechoslovakian history. An added bonus: scenes from the classic movie Paper Moon were filmed here. Who knew? We will come back to to the Midland the next time we hit the road along I-70. ”
Lucinda
“Super cute historic hotel! The downstairs restaurant and bar is great along with the relaxing back patio. Extra comfy beds. Dogs are more than welcome which is a huge plus as well. Authentic Czech pastries from the local bakery are the icing on the cake! We will be back again next year :)”
Lisa
“Excellent accommodations in an amazingly well restored building that Carrie’s all the charm of a century ago but with the all the conveniences of modern hotels. Also, make sure to try the adjoining restaurant. The atmosphere and food are excellent and our waiter did a very good job attending to our table.”
