I had already booked a room at the Econo Lodge in Lawrence on my way out to Nevada, mainly because I saw it got the best ratings on here. As it turns out, I ran into some car troubles coming into Lawrence and had to get my car towed off the highway. Showing up late and stressed at the Econo... More

This hotel is wonderful. I frequently travel to Lawrence to visit KU, and after staying at many other hotels in the area, this is by far the best choice. The price is always reasonable, the rooms are always clean and quiet, and the couple who run the hotel are fantastic. It is a short drive from campus and I have... More

Great value! Rooms are nice and clean. New paint and carpet. Friendly staff. I will definitely stay here again! The mini fridge and microwave look new also. Rooms are pretty small. I think the poolside rooms don't hear the traffic as much.

Yes, it's an older hotel, but very clean and with a professional staff. Great mattresses and big fluffy pillows. If it can be polished, it shines....no dust on the lamp shades....every surface was clean. Rooms have coffee pot, shampoo, micro, refrig, iron/ironing board, safe and hair dryer. Continental breakfast was suitable and gets your day started. Very clean eating area.... More

My job has me traveling in Missouri and Kansas. On evenings I need to be in Lawrence, I always stay here. Sam the owner is very friendly and helps when I need copies of sales forms or faxes and never charges me like most the others do. Sam will go out of his way to make your stay comfortable. Very...

The Econo Lodge in Lawrence KS is a little hidden gem. The premises are wonderfully landscaped, the rooms are clean, the pool is lovely and the staff go out of their way to ensure the stay is delightful. I would heartily recommend a stay at the Econo Lodge and will probably do so again.

I have stayed here on two separate occasions. Once for the Color Run and another for the Glow Run. The staff was very helpful in helping us find the past way to get to the locations of both runs and even told us where the best place for parking would probably be which ended up being super helpful.

This was my second visit to this motel. I was a late night arrival but looked for this motel based off my good experience on my first visit. The front desk staff was extremely courteous at check-in and at check-out. This motel is located in a good location with lots of close restaurants and shopping, close enough to KU campus... More

Nothing fancy here. Nice pool area! Small rooms, with everything you need, including continental breakfast.. Groceries within walking distance.(1/4 mile). Refrigerator /microwave in the room. Stay at Virginia Inn,(no pool) a couple blocks away and save a few $$

This review only has to do with the carpet. It was extremely damp, and for some reason it bothered me a lot. Just wore sandals but if I forgot and walked with my socks the dampness would seep through. Just another note - the hotels holds an additional 20$ until you've checked out of the room, in case of damages.... More
