I have mixed emotions about this hotel. The hotel staff was very friendly and personable. However, the hotel room I stayed in wasn't very clean. The carpet was stained, and I smelled what appeared to be mildew in the halls. I stayed in this hotel for 10 days. When it was time for me to check out, the billing was... More

My five-night stay at this clean establishment gets the five-star rating! The accommodating lady at the front desk, Liz, secured a great room facing the Hollywood Theaters and at the end of the hallway as I requested. The breakfast looked great but I did not take full advantage of it. However, it was a snap to grab a yogurt and... More

We stayed one night while visiting KU. The hotel was clean and rooms were a decent size. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's a couple miles from the campus but not hard to get to. The breakfast was fine.

Our room was spotless thanks to Contessa, the room attendant. The location of this Holiday Inn Express was great- lots of nearby restaurants, gas stations and all. The breakfast in the lobby was more than adequate. Everything was especially clean, comfortable, attractive and nice. We truly appreciated the pet friendly accommodations. Will certainly repeat.

The H.I.E. is located at the south end of the city, near shopping areas and several decent restaurants are within easy driving distance (just too hot to walk the night we were in Lawrence).
