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

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
