Stayed in Lawrence, Kansas as a stopover while traveling cross country. The hotel accommodations were excellent. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is about a mile from the freeway, right by the campus easy to find. Chilli's is right by the hotel and it is also near other fast food places. I would not... More

The front desk could be a little bit more pro-active and understanding in there approach to customers dissatisfaction with the reservation with central office and check in experience. No accommidation was made when I expressed dissatifaction with my room. No offer of placing me in a room in the main building until I got upset about it. Even then He... More

Well worth the cost. Clean, nice attitude of staff. Good and sufficient amenities. Near Kansas University with easy access to almost any place in town. I've stayed in more expensive motor hotels lately such as the Marriott in Santa Fe and this is much better for much less.

With two children at the university, we stay here when we are in town IF there is an availability. This is the closest hotel to the KU campus and they have great indoor rooms and an older, outdoor section for pets. When our youngest left, we inherited her rescue dog and we are welcomed when we bring her. The two... More

This hotel would not be one of my first choices. It just seems like it is on the way down. Does not seem well kept. The service was ok nothing to get excited about. I think the bed was a piece of foam on a sheet of plywood. Not good sleeping! It has rather a strange drive into the front... More

The location of the hotel was good when I visited Lawrence during a business trip. It was nice that the hotel had a full breakfast with plenty of variety, though I wasn't keen on the hockey puck eggs and sausages. The best part of the experience was the hot tub, which I had to myself, very relaxing after a long... More

I was in town for a wedding and stayed at the Best Western because other relatives were there. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of our room for the value. I will stay there again. I had planned to use the pool and fitness center but didn't.

In winter, stay in main building, worth the extra few dollars. Clean room, adequate breakfast, good value. Very close to the University. There was a volleyball team staying there at the same time and we didn't hear them.

The front desk staff was really nice and speedy at checking us into the hotel. This Best Western has rooms in the main building and also an outer building. I had a room in the outer building and had no problems. The room was very clean and a nice size! The free wifi worked well also! The breakfast area was... More

Very comfortable stay and accommodating staff. I recommend this hotel for the senior in mind. Very good rates. Maid service is great and everything was clean and in good order. However, the channels are limited in what you are viewing. Mostly KC stations and a few cable networks. Would like to see more local channels (Lawrence and Topeka).
