I booked a non-smoking room and they initially put me in a TINY room in their outer building that had clearly been a smoking room. We were in the room for about 3 minutes and both me and my guest got a sinus headache. We called the front desk and they switched us to the interior building which was a... More

I like this hotel. The room was big and clean. Its location is the miidle of the town near the KU and the staff very kind, except this time the room had been cleaned just one during my staying and the breakfast was very poor

Dependable hotel near the university campus, clean rooms and good service. Bedding is good, and internet service and morning breakfast offering is good. Within walking distance to a number of local restuarants. Good value for the price.

Stayed here this past Friday night and last night. This is a very clean hotel that appears it may have been recently remodeled in the past year or two. We had a 3 double bed suite. The room was very clean. The negative issues with our room were: The fridge did not work, the pillows are awful, and the shower... More

Hotel was clean, staff ok but not exceptional, breakfast standard. This hotel is always consistent. Quiet and convenient. Could use a little update in the rooms. This hotel is close to our family so we like to stay there. It serves the purpose we need.

I had rented two rooms for my family. The staff was wonderful. Much better deal with this hotel than others I have stayed in Lawrence, KS. Pool and whirlpool was very clean. Definitely a good place to stay with children.

When I contacted the property they went above and beyond in helping me. They found the retainer in the room and mailed... More

One night stay traveling for business. Checked TA and went with the recommendation to stay in the main building, not the annex. Front desk service by the young men working both the night and morning shifts were much less than impressive nor friendly. Room was fine but no soap, shampoo, etc on the bathroom. Ok one night stay but nothing... More
