The rooms were clean, but small. There was a nice outdoor pool and the motel was close to many places to eat. The breakfast room was small but the breakfast was adequate. The staff were pleasant. The room had a refrigerator and microwave.

Friendly staff Rooms not updated which i did read but when we got here the price was much higher. I have stayed in cleaner rooms. I caught someone peeking in our window when i was unloading our vehicle. They did allow pets and had a nice little area to walk your pets. I did not use the pool area but... More

We've stayed here before and true to their word hotel owners did have new TVs installed which helped pass some extra time. Not had any safety issues, staff is always friendly & personable. Gave us a great rate because we had student activities at the University. Families with young children to retirees have been at the hotel when we've stayed.... More

Breakfast was good, everything was clean, the pool was good, even pool towels in each room. But the bed was a little to hard. Good value, easy to find, great applebees just down the street. You can feel safe staying here.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel during our visit to Kansas. It is true as per other reviews, this is not one of your high ends hotels, but overall this was a clean comfortable place to stay. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. I requested a nonsmoking room. However, upon entering the first rooms, there was the... More

The owner was very accommodating. I had booked onlint'se. At first he had me booked in a room upstairs but when I informed him I had booked for one on the ground floor, he immediately changed it and booked me downstairs. Even though the room was booked near the swimming pool where people were having a party, the room was... More

Reasonably priced for such a wonderful well manicured place Beautiful pool surrounded by blooming bushes. Cannot imagine getting more value for my dollar than this in Lawrence. As nice as the top dollar hi way motels. We feel lucky as people just passing through to have found this

Let's face it. This is a very low end hotel (motel, actually) if all you're looking for is a functional room with a decent bed. The people who are giving this place 4 or 5 ratings must have never stayed in a decent hotel before. This is more like a local non-chain roach motel than a national chain. The room... More

This motel was very nice. The beds were comfortable. The staff is very nice and helpful. The WiFi is very fast, unlike some places that advertise high speed internet and it isn't. The breakfast was very good with lots of choices. I would stay there again if I was in the area. And would definitely recommend it.
