The service at this hotel is awesome! Jolene bent over backwards to help when I couldn't get the TV remote to work from the bed. They have Direct TV and a "plug" needed to be reconnected but it took a little bit to figure that out. Jolene brought a new remote and programmed it but that didn't solve the problem... More

I travel six months a year and am always grateful when I find a comfortable, reasonably priced, clean, convenient and hospitable hotel. My tv went on the fritz about 10:00 p.m. and the owner showed up in minutes to fix the problem. Great staff. The Econo Lodge University is my kind of hotel for all the above reasons. Great value!

We were surprised by the helpfulness of each staff person. The room was simple but clean. Each breakfast was ample, i.e., real eggs and sausages plus yogurt, cereal, bagels, etc daily. We were surprised to learn that this is one of only two hotels in Lawrence that recycles. Our boarding passes were printed at the main desk. The hotel is... More

Well we spent one night at the Econo Lodge in Lawrence Kansas and while it was clean and very reasonably priced, it was probably not the best place for us... The wall are very thin, but not as thin as the towels, the soap is hard as a rock , the street noise is noticable, and the breakfast is very... More

This was one of the best motels we stayed at on our 2-week trip. The proprieters run a tight ship and the place is lovely. Grounds are well kept, the ice, vending & laundry are conveniently located in a locked room (your room key opens the door) and everything is CLEAN! The room was perfect and the complementary breakfast was... More

it seems many people who review hotels etc here do it without regard to the price they paid. that hardly seems fair to me. this was about the lowest price hotel we could fine for the night. and for the price it was perfectly fine. the rooms were clean and comfortable. the breakfast was filling enough to last till lunch....

I went to Lawrence for my high school reunion so I know the territory. I had not stayed in the Econo Lodge before but the location is good...not too far from downtown or food stores, restaurants. The greeting was very cordial. It was extremely hot in Lawrence for Labor Day weekend, over 100 degrees, ah, fond memories of Lawrence in... More
