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.

Very good value. The staff is friendly and works to accommodate us by giving us the same room each time we stay there. We have been coming to Lawrence for the past several years to visit our daughter and her family and have never been disappointed. The location is perfect for us and we always enjoy the hot breakfast.

Found this nice gem of a motel when passing through Lawrence. Family run, clean rooms, and good service. Nice hot items in the breakfast area and good selection of other stuff. Would stay with them again when coming through the area.

This hotel is clean & basic. We weren't spending a lot of time at the hotel so daily needs were met. It is older styled building, no elevators, vending was in a different area as we were on 2nd floor in the back. Breakfast offered several choices. Friendly staff w/a variety of travelers-family, business, special event guests, etc. Light sleepers:... More
