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).

The facility was in excellent shape. My room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was nice and large. One or two items showed some aging but nothing terrible. This was a very quiet facility. The breakfast was excellent. I will definitely stay here my next time in Lawrence.
