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 The rooms are O.K. They are very outdated and a little rough.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

We have stayed there several times over the past few years while visiting family and going to NASCAR races. Great rates, very friendly people, good breakfast, very nice rooms. This location takes the sting out of traveling.

Great front desk help. Quick check in. Room is very clean and has all the necessary amenities however the internet is awfully slow. Nice neighborhood to go for a walk - grocery store and convenience store close by. Nice comfortable well priced place to stay.

I suppose all hotels upped their prices for KU graduation time, but paying $140 per night for a tiny, old hotel room was outrageous. It was clean, but the towels the first night were thin as could be; better the next night. Not even space to put the luggage rack anywhere. I was alone, but two people would have been... More

Agree with many of the other reviewers - this is a simple motel that offers terrific value for the price. The room and lobby were clean and the staff were all incredibly friendly and caring. We recently stayed in a high priced Hyatt in Cleveland, and this was by far a better room, bed, tv, shower, wifi connection, and overall... More

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
