“This is a great place to get off the highway when you need a break. The hotel is full of history and had really clean rooms – it was perfect for our tired bodies after hours on the road. We were unlucky enough to be caught in a freak blizzard overnight and the service of the hotel staff was without question, the most comforting thing we experienced. Free food was offered when we were snowed in, and everyone was so helpful. It was truly the best place to be in the storm!”
“This is not the usual AirBnB experience. A beautifully restored railroad hotel, lovely appointments, comfortable accommodation, friendly staff. This is the perfect place to stay if you’re driving Dallas to Denver.”
“Great & unique accommodations that make you feel right at home!”
“Out stay here was a highlight of our drive through the Midwest. The food was fine and the atmosphere was warm and visually pleasing. We walked around at dusk and it took us back to an earlier time in America. Our room was fine and a welcome change from boring motel rooms. The furniture is beautiful and the sitting room is filled with good books and photographs. I very much recommend this place.”
“Great stay! Easy stopping point, good communication, if we’re diving through again we’ll stay here.”
“This is a beautiful hotel. I love the fact that the hotel owners made the hotel feel like you where still in the 1889 when the hotel was built. This hotel is very unique and won’t find this style anywhere else.”
“The nostalgia and absolute beauty of the Midland was a real treat and every bit as beautiful as depicted. The staff was warm and friendly…the breakfast was great. Loved it….we definitely recommend.”
“We loved the historic Midland Railroad Hotel! I highly recommend taking a short detour off of I-70 to stay at this delightful hotel. The Midland has been authentically restored to the grandeur of the 1900s. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The Sample Room Tavern and restaurant served a yummy chicken fried chicken special the night we were there. Although I am very nostalgic about train whistles, church bells, and old-fashioned meal sirens, I would recommend ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Don’t miss this precious gem in the middle of Kansas!”
“This is such a historic treasure, super clean, authentic arts and crafts style, very inviting ambiance, great staff, and the onsite bar and restaurant really delivered an enjoyable experience. We will look for reasons to return! Also, some fun shopping in the neighborhood boutiques.”
“Really wonderful and charming place to stay! The building is beautiful and the restaurant is great. Only thing to note is that it is right by the train tracks so there was some train noise in the morning, but that’s in the name! Would definitely recommend!”
“The Midland Railroad Hotel is a true old West hotel we enjoyed our stay the restaurant was authentic Western affair we enjoyed a walk around the town after dinner and a nice Continental breakfast a good value on the high plains and I-70 corridor”
“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!”
“Great little apartment. Very clean and everything was like new. ”
“This was so wonderful! I will be back if I come thru Kansas! A very special unexpected treat. Amazing room, high ceilings, old charm, quaint town, beautiful sunset, great breakfast, awesome bathroom and bed. Great light. Thank you!”
“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. ”
“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. ”
