I'm not sure why in all the positive reviews there is no mention of a train passing by (counted six times until the morning) in such close proximity you can feel the bed vibrate.
The location is historic and that makes it nice but way too expensive at $119 a night for a bed and a futon in a hot room (old a/c takes hours to kick in).
We were grateful for a place to stay but would of appreciated the warning from other travelers.

... for about 20 years, it housed many different units, most notably the 10th Cavalry, better known as the Buffalo Soldiers. Fort Larned is very similar to Fort Scott, but more remote and basic.

September 20th & 21st was spent in Russell, KS, hometown of my mother's side of my family. We learned that an auction of my Aunt Reba's household items was to take place on Saturday so we decided it would be fun to stay for the event and spend a little time with my cousins Jim & Judy New. Their nephew and his wife, Jarrod & Beth from Denver, CO were in town also so we had another fun family reunion this summer that was totally ...
After our adventurous night at the Railroad Hotel we were able to drive around the town and see what we missed arriving at night.
One of the signs that we saw there that we found very interesting was one listing a phone number to call to get land for free.
This was a shocking sign for us to see specially coming from South Florida where people out number space/land.
We took many pictures of the drive from KS to ...
... yards from our door. We are 347 miles from home, and happy that this Park brings in the ABC signal just fine on their cable. So as we wait for the vote-off segment of Dancing With The Stars at 8PM, we are reviewing the weather and maps for tomorrow's travel to Colorado Springs.
We are glad to be here! (and only 3 messages on our phones so far. Yeah!)
Best to you!
