I would highly recommend staying at the Elm's Hotel and Spa. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff is exceptionally nice and one of my favorite things about my stay is the spa! If you want to be spoiled, relax and enjoy yourself, book your stay at the Elms!

My BFF and I decided to celebrate 33 years of friendship with a girls spa weekend. We picked a city halfway between our homes and Kansas City was one of the closest cities. In looking for hotel/spas, we came upon the Elms. What a find! Beautiful old hotel with such charm. The staff was courteous and efficient. Our room was...

Wonderful old hotel that has been updated. Indoor and outdoor pool, wonderful spa on site, great restaurant and also a wonderful on sight coffee shop. Rooms are the best - comfortable furniture. Easy to walk into town, which is less than a block from the hotel. Nice outside areas to sit and just relax. All staff are very friendly.

Yes, Excelsoir Springs is a bit out of the way, but the Elms is worth it. We found the Elms a great experience. It's one of those places that you enjoy just being at. The first thing that catches one's attention is the stone grotto work that jumps out at you upon arrival. Once inside you experience a grand lobby...

I was there on a business trip. In fact, was there 3 days and nights, and used the Truman Room for my organization's board of directors meeting. Every time we have a meeting in the mid-West, we request to stay at The Elms because of their wonderful amenities and helpful staff. Stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the swimming pool...

This place is top-notch from service to amenities. The grotto is the real selling point and what makes this place stand out from other fancy hotels with great service. All of the staff go out of their way to greet you as they pass and make you feel as comfortable as possible. We had a private suite on the 5th...

Excellent time spent at the Spa, Restaurant and Lounge with family celebrating my son's birthday. Always a very relaxing time spent and staff is always more than accommodating. Very clean and inviting atmosphere.

This was one of the most well taken care of hotels I have been in, in a while. The attention to detail and care in all areas shows that the people that work there care about preserving the beauty and reputation of this place. We had a great time enjoying the indoor pool and hot tub and slept well on...

My husband and I stayed here as a brief getaway. We loved it. Just a tip - book directly through the hotel. We paid way less directly through the hotel than we would have with Priceline/Hotwire/Etc. The staff was just OK but the grounds and the room were fantastic. Upgrade to a suite. It's worth it. Don't forget your swimsuit!...

My family and I attended a Saturday afternoon wedding at The Elms. The room for the wedding was set up beautifully. (I would suggest that the heater/fans not kick in during a ceremony, however. It became difficult to hear when that happened.) Reception food was good. Room was a nice size for a party of 100 - 250. Check-in was...
