We've tried lots of pet-friendly motels in Lawrence and this is one of the best. Check in was easy and friendly, room was dated but clean. Not many frills, but this is just what we needed. Will stay again.

Stayed 3 nights during a family visit. Have stayed here before but this time was not as good as before. There seems to have been some sort of change in management or ownership. The wonderful attentive previous couple that managed the hotel were not there anymore. Problems: A used washcloth was hanging on the shower head, we could not get... More

This is one of the rare times that Trip Advisor reviews have let me down. We were in Lawrence on a busy weekend and this was one of the few places we could find for a reasonable price. The 4 "dot" review average gave me confidence that it would be fine. It was not. First the good: There was plenty... More

We chose this motel because it had an outdoor pool and we wanted to catch some rays before the end of Summer. We were not disappointed. The pool area is very nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very nice and go out of their way to help your stay be the best it can be.

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!
