I try keep my praises in my Mission Repair blog to a minimum…but this one was worth the effort.
Last weekend Dandra took me to the Midland Railroad Hotel in Wilson, KS (POPULATION 466) for a birthday getaway.
It sits along the train tracks that parallel Interstate 70 that runs across the country. If you ever drive from East coast to West coast (of vise versa), you probably took I70 as the shortest route. Just 2 miles south of the Interstate in Wilson sits this historic “haunted” hotel that is sure to please.
Firstly, the building is restored beautifully. Originally built in 1899, I would expect it to be an accurate representation of what it looked like over 100 years ago.
Secondly, the food at the in-house restaurant is nothing short of homemade and gourmet. The meatloaf, fried chicken, prime rib, french toast, eggs Benedict and the amazing desserts are all crafted in their kitchen. I will also add that their cocktails were mighty tasty too.
Thirdly, the room that we stayed in (room 313) was awesome. A separate sitting room, huge bathroom and king size bed were all perfect. Antiques and original wood accents were all in excellent condition. The floors squeaked when you walked on them, just as you would expect!
Lastly, the staff was amazing. We spent time with the General Manager Shelley, and the rest of her staff was extremely nice, accommodating and pleasant. They actually made the time spent at the hotel very enjoyable and wanted us to come back.
Midland; you’ve got us. We will do our part to help spread the word and you’ll see us back there in 2016. Thanks for the great time!
