We had a small King size bed suite. Room was clean and in pretty good shape. Needed a light bulb changed and the toilet paper roller was broken but overall just fine. Bed was comfortable and staff were very polite, helpful and no hassle getting an extra blanket for the pull out couch in the room. Hotel was busy but... More

Room was quite fine. Service was great and staff very friendly, helpful and polite. Have stayed at Best Western's all over the world and this is the first that used paper plates and plastic utensils in the dining room.

This Best Western was as I expect them to be... clean, comfortable beds, and quiet location. This one had a nice little indoor pool, though I did not try it out. Morning breakfast was a decent spread. Parking was a little odd as the lot was divided up strangely. Would recommend staying here.

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
