We stayed here for 2 nights along with several other people for a wedding. On Friday night we went to the pool. There were people with a bicycle in the pool area drinking and talking. Someone else came in asking if they could bring in their dog. Not really sure if the staff ever checks what is going on at... More

Any time we receive a report of bodily fluids, specific procedural steps must be taken for the safety of our staff and guests. When it was reported to the desk someone had gotten sick in the room, the front desk advised the housekeeping supervisor, who began the process to properly clean it up. This is why we would not simply... More

We were greeted at the door even though we arrived after midnight. Slept great with the room darkening shades. Enjoyed a warm breakfast, food had been sitting but we had slept in and came down at 9:30 so straight from the frying pan wasn't expected. Bathroom is in odd location and door is awkward to maneuver around but no biggy... More

no service. I'm saying no service. The desk associates don't care. Nobody will do a thing to help you out. Don't let them clean your room or they will throw your stuff away. The pool is freezing and the hot tub doesn't work.

Great hotel. We love Lawrence Kansas. However, for the second time this year, my credit card was overcharged. Not sure why this keeps happening. I am starting to believe this is "regular" policy. I fully expect this to be rectified shortly. I am a very happy Best Western customer.

This hotel was fine, it just needs some updating. The staff was helpful and offered dinner options when we asked. Because of the location we could walk to many different restaurants. Bring your bathing suits, the indoor pool looked lovely however we didn't use it.

The hotel was easy to find. Had a couple of restaurants next door as well as a bunch close by. The room we had was comfortable and quiet. Only real issue we had was the bathroom light burned out and we were too tired to call in about it.

We have stayed here numerous time as our halfway point to other destinations in the midwest. Normally we stay in an exterior room to save on cost. However, this time we were upgraded to an interior room and it was great! Nice, clean, and quiet. This BW has been a consistently reliable place for our family to stay and we... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice because it was close to my destination. I have been very please with both visits. The morning breakfast was great. The pool was very busy with lots of kids, so I did not enjoy that as much. There is a chili's next door and a drug store across the street.

Checked into the hotel, into a non-smoking room. Went to room it smells like an ashtray. Called the front desk to see if I can switch rooms, was informed I had the last room. Front desk I came down sprayed some lavender offered to leave the bottle. It masked the smell for about five minutes. I will not stay there... More
