My husband and I - and our three cats - were displaced from our home after a minor flood necessitated a remodel of our only bathroom. I needed a pet-friendly accommodation, with microwave, refrigerator and wifi and at a reasonable price. A pretty-tall order, but one that the Lawrence Holiday Inn Express filled superbly. The fact that a hot breakfast... More

You can tell this is the nicest hotel in Lawrence because it's hard to get into and a bit pricey. But it's worth every penny, consistently clean and good service! This is our go to hotel whenever we visit Lawrence. Convenient location next to lots of stores and restaurants, etc.

I visited with others from several states for a conference. The cleanliness in the room was outstanding. The bathroom was spotless. I appreciated the fact that after turning up the A/C, they would not come in to turn it down during my absence. The best part was the delicious, well balanced continental breakfast. I have to pause to thank "Philis"... More
