Our family stayed at the Rodeway Inn over the Chistmas holiday. As was the case with our last visit the hotel staff was very friendly and our room was fine. We liked the free coffee in the lobby. For the rate we found the Rodeway to be a bargin.

Traveling on way to AZ just pulled into the first hotel off 70. Big mistake, should have gone further. Old microwave sitting on the desk, there was another working one in the room. Curtain rod laid across the desk also. Went to shower and there were long hairs in the shower. Too tired to complain. Glad only one night.

My daughter and I stayed at the Roadway last weekend-- like other only hotel that was still available in Lawrence. I didn't have high expectations given the chain but was horribly underwhelmed by hotel conditions. We had to change rooms due to lights out and completely unacceptable bedding. Blanket was so old it was literally falling apart. Second room the... More

First time overnight in Lawrence to see KU football game. Hotel employees were friendly and our room was clean, Wished KU would have won, but all in all a fun weekend in Lawrence. Will stay here again for another game.

I was booked at another hotel, but they would accept my reservation because I had an employee rate. So lucky me, this wonderful hotel took me rate. And good thing, this place was sooooooo much nice and friendlier than the other place. I am glad the other hotel was greed and turned me way. I ended up having very enjoyable... More

I was booked here for business at KU. Apparently, the rest of the hotels in town were booked up. I waited 20+ minutes for the desk clerk to show up at check in, along with 5 other people. The clerk came in with some excuse about being getting something from one of the rooms. I was not happy since I... More

We stayed here because it was the only place I could find three days before a KU home game weekend. (That should have been my first clue.) I really don't mind cheap, spare hotels. Sometimes all you need is a bed, and the niceties just don't matter. However, my experience here went beyond spartan facilities or outdated decor. 1. We... More

I stayed at this Rodeway Inn because it was close to KU where I had business. Overall the employees were very nice and I had a good room for the rate I paid. I would use this hotel again when I come to Lawrence.

The front desk was friendly. The hallways were a little dark and the locks on the door were weak. Looking through the peep hole from the outside in you could see the room in its entirety. Slightly creepy. The rooms were ok. Good if you're on a budget.

We arrived at the Rodeway about 10pm, The girl that gave us our room was very nice, she told us where our room was located, about breakfast and the pool hours. Our room was by the pool so we could watch the kids swim. The rate was good and our room was clean.
