The beautiful Best Western Plus Patterson Park Inn is nestled in the southern flint hills of Kansas bordering the state of Oklahoma. Our convenient location centralizes us between Wichita, KS; Oklahoma City, OK; and Tulsa, OK.

Winner of the 2021 Champion Green Award, our beautiful facility is 100% smoke-free and features complimentary high-speed internet access, an indoor heated swimming pool, patio with a grill, fitness facility, sundry shop, and guest laundry. A complimentary, full hot breakfast buffet greets guests each morning and ensures a great start to the day.

When you visit Arkansas City you will not find a shortage of things to do. Enjoy a summer concert in the park, relax at the local winery, take a historic drive to see the stone bridges of Cowley County, or enjoy a walking tour of the local art sculptures throughout the city.
