It was clean and staff friendly. However the bed and pillows were hard and uncomfortable. They used a regular sheet to cover mattress instead of a fitted sheet and it kept coming up and wrinkling under me when I moved. Also the shower head height was perfect if your no taller than 4 1/2 feet. I am 5 1/2 and... More

Was just passing through on the way to Denver and found this place. I was really surprised. It is not your average econo lodge. It is actually very nice. Everything from the room, pool, and basic breakfast helped make this a solid choice in an area that can sometime be hard to find a room.

Stayed here one night. It was clean, the beds were comfy and the breakfast was decent, sparse, but decent. There is access to a washer & dryer on property. The bedspreads and blankets need updating, but I didn't use anything but the sheet over me

Had checked out Trip Advisor the night before saw the sign and stopped in and held a room for later that day. We were offered early checkin but said it was fine we would come back around 2 pm. Had a lovely room round side by the pool so back off the road noise. Very comfortable and a great cooked... More

I stayed here for a few days while attending to a few short meetings at the nearby University. The hotel is along one of the main roads and walking distance to a 24-hour grocery store. Everything else one would need "while in an unfamiliar place" was within a short drive; including the city's lovely downtown.The place is rather old and... More

Husband and I had to be in Lawrence, KS for a funeral. Even though the reason for our stay was sad our stay at the Econo Lodge was very peaceful and comfortable. The staff there is top notch. Rooms are small but very clean and real kept. Highly recommend this motel. Thanks!

Just stayed here for a quick overnight, but it was a decent value for the money. Nice outdoor pool, friendly desk staff, average room - perfect for a place that I'm just planning to sleep in for 6 hours. Would come back again under similar circumstances.

We checked in late, but it was quick and easy. The parking lot is rough. It needs to be re-paved and you need good shocks. It is also not lit very well. The rooms are O.K. They are very outdated and a little rough. The maintenance is very lacking. There are appliances that don't work. Overloaded extension cords seem a... More

We stayed here with a family for KU graduation. Prices were definitely adjusted upward for that event. For what is basically an updated motel, it's decently clean and decently equipped. Beds were comfy too. The pool area was nice and clean, though the water was very brisk, so it clearly isn't a heated pool. Parking was no problem even though... More

Nothing fabulous, but not bad. You get what you pay for. My husband and I were just needing to get away and see some friends on a whim, so we stayed the night in town. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and I did not hear a thing all night. The only thing that was not so great... More
