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.


“Very unique spot in the heart of Wilson! Extremely clean room and elegant hotel. Well worth the stay and a great value!”
“Our host has done a wonderful job bringing this hotel back to life. It’s a step back in time, enjoyed the history, and artifacts. Bonus if you are of Czechoslovakian descent.”
“What a cool place this is! Loved that it still has feel of a historical place with all the comforts of today. Beautiful garden area out back, we sat and enjoyed the surroundings. Got to briefly chat with Melinda and she is super sweet! Wish we would have known about this place the last four years of traveling through Kansas. Would have stayed here every time!!”
“The hotel was an amazing stay! If you love historical places then you’d loved this hotel and town.”
“Comfortable beds, a good place to stop after a long day on the road. Nice breakfast. We enjoyed our stay very much.”
“Clean, quick responses, informative. The Sample Room bar in the basement is excellent with a fantastic spicy chicken!”
“A must stop if passing through Kansas! This hotel has a fabulous atmosphere and amazing amenities. I’ve stopped once a year for the past three and it gets better every time. There’s a small restaurant and bar downstairs with local beers and amazing food!! Staff brought my food and drinks to the room-which was exactly what I needed after a 6 hour drive after work. It’s a small staff and you can tell everyone is dedicated to making you feel welcome. The owner’s daughter makes the kolache for breakfast every morning and it is SPOT ON! Delicious!!! The beds are plush and comfortable. The back patio is cozy and charming. I already look forward to going back next year!”
“The Midland is charming, neat and clean, comfortable and classy. Staff in both hotel and restaurant are friendly and helpful. Food is good. Great place to stay. I’ll definitely be back.”
“Skip any of the chains and stay at the Midland Railroad hotel!! It is beautiful and VERY clean. Plus you can bring your dog for an extra fee. The continental breakfast is an amazing value and much, much better than you will find at any chain hotel. Plus the little town of Wilson is a treasure and is so fun to walk around. There is a ton of history to explore. It’s like a time capsule. We will be staying here anytime we drive through Kansas on the way to Missouri!”
“We loved our stay at this cool historic railroad hotel that has been beautifully restored. It’s fun to walk around the sleepy downtown and look at the Czech egg sculptures and convenient for a visit to the outsider art in Lucas, Kansas.”
“This is a great stop for travelers passing through town. The historic hotel is really cool and the rooms are comfortable and clean. The restaurant/bar in the building is really convenient. Staff are all super nice.”
“Surprising place to stay. We needed a place between CO and MO. So, a stop in Wilson was convenient. Building was built in the 1890’s and they’ve added plumbing and electricity along with an elevator but the decor looks like original that has been kept up. If you are passing along I-70 and like unique little towns, this is a great place. Quaint little town to walk around and see the Czech eggs that decorate this village. Enjoy.”
“Delicious food. Lots of $$$ choices. Enjoyed the patio & music in the evening. We would go again.”
“Loved this historical hotel. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Everything is clean. Special touches to the breakfast (overnight oatmeal in mason jars, kolaches , salami and cheese… ). Rooms are very simple and true to the history of the hotel. The town is quaint and worth the visit.”
I felt like in a movie gone back in time. Historic Hotel with sympathetically renovated/ decorated rooms. Our corner room was extra special with having three Windows overlooking the giant egg.- The Restaurant served excellent steak but although staples like meat loaf and the bar has a huge whiskey and bourbon selection. loved being able to go for a late night walk to view all the little eggs too.

“The history surrounding this hotel and community are amazing! The hotel is very clean with the awesome upgrades for its age. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the community “eggs” are very interesting! If you are traveling and need to stop, “Czech” this place out!”
Great historical hotel with period style rooms and furniture and views of the world’s largest Easter egg.
Spent a peaceful night in this clean, comfortable and welcoming hotel and enjoyed a tasty burger and whisky in the sample room bar in the basement.

“As always, I experienced a great stay and enjoyed dinner in the restaurant below. Wish I could have stayed for Czech Fest, looked like a lot of fun!”
“Wonderful location of an historical place that exudes the charm of an English flower garden in full bloom complete with conversation-provoking metal sculptures and the ambiance of Kansas farm country mixed with the cultural touches of Eastern Europe.”
“I enjoyed my stay at this historic landmark. The hotel itself is full of charm and is a credit to the town of Wilson. It is obvious that the hotel is in keeping with this quaint little town and is central to the community. The Staff were very friendly and accommodating.”
“This was my second stay at The Midland and it was even better than the first! The reason was, on this visit, I arrived in time to eat at the restaurant beneath the hotel. Not only the biggest order of fried pickles ever, but a nice wine list as well. Plus, the hotel is dog friendly and has breakfast!”
“This hotel is the best! If you’re on the road in Kansas, come stay. But know the restaurant is closed Mondays.”
