After our not as pleasant stay at the Wichita HIE the Lawrence HIE was up and beyond the normal! The room was clean and quiet. The breakfast hot and the coffee was better than the normal HIE. The breakfast attendant was friendly and very helpful always making sure the food was hot and plentiful. We stay at HIE all over... More

Our quilt club used the conference rooms for our spring quilt camp and enjoyed every minute. The staff was superb in paying attention to us and meeting our needs, most often seeming to anticipate them rather than waiting until we asked for something. The rooms were clean, and the atmosphere was comfortable and quiet. We plan to visit again!

Dear Robin W, Thanks for taking the time to write and post another awesome review about us. We really enjoy having your group here, maybe more than you enjoy being here. Some of us are even thinking of becoming quilters, too! I hope you all have a great summer and we are really looking forward to seeing you all here... More

This is our second time using the facility at Holiday Inn Express. The room was exceptionally clean, service was great, personnel were exceptionally accomodating. The dining area was clean. We are planning another stay in the fall. I would recommend this motel to all my friends.

This HIE is in a very convenient location for finding a good place to have dinner. It is a good stopping over place for north/south travelers. It is beginning to show some wear and tear, especially the parking lot which is coming apart this winter. We also found the Saturday morning breakfast area woefully undersized for the number of people... More

Breakfast is typical HI, not bad not great. Coffee is so-so. I'd like to see the yoplait yoghurt replaced by some decent greek yoghurt w-less sugar. The parking... More

From the two ladies who helped me at the front desk, Patty and Liz, to the young girl at the breakfast bar, this stay was amazing. The hotel is clean, and all of the staff was amazing and professional. I stopped here traveling through, and I may have to make an excuse to go back. A must stop for anyone....

Crazy snow storm hit the 2nd day of my stay. They had a little dinner party for the guests! Tortellini, pizza, and garlic bread- such a nice treat. So unexpected and thoughtful. The beds were just a little too firm but the hotel has quiet hours and overall I would stay here again
