My daughter left her piggy bank there when we checked out. I called the hotel the same day, with in hours, to see if we could come pick it up, They said that we would have to wait for housekeeping.

We stayed at the Best Western because of it's proximity to the KU campus. I will say the price was good.Breakfast could have had better selections,and the hotel itself could use an updating. The rooms were ok,the pool was ok,but for as busy as it gets it needs to be kept up to date.

Sorry to say, the room smelled like smoke, even though the hotel is smoke-free. Get there early and doublecheck your room. Since we arrived later, we were stuck with a room swap that wasn't what we had booked. Very nice and competent management, but smoke is an issue for some of us.

I arrived before check-in hour with a need to change and get to a meeting. Zach on the front desk was able to come up with a very suitable room. Large, comfortable, and cool. Clean. The BW is centrally located in this interesting city. While I would not want to live here in the summer or winter, I find that... More

Super helpful staff. Very comfortable beds. A little dated but super clean and serviceable. We were here for a family reunion and another member booked the rooms. It was exactly what we needed. The beds are super comfortable, the pool was very nice. Breakfast worked well.

This is our go to hotel when we visit Lawrence .We have stayed many times over the past 5 years. Nothing fancy but it is always clean and comfortable. Convenient to KU with a restaurant next door and a shopping mall across the street it's a great value

++ = Clean room, comfortable bed, good hotel for the price. Negatives = Below average breakfast, bathroom sink is in the main room (not in the bathroom), 24 hour cancellation policy. We were in town for a basketball tournament and had reserved the room for two nights. Due to the tournament schedule if we had lost on the second day... More

We had stayed at this BW a couple years ago and had a free night with our points. It is a nice hotel, the rooms were clean and bed comfortable. My wife used the hot tub and said that it wasnt as hot as she would like, but ok otherwise. Breakfast was good though might need a few more places... More
