We stayed there for my daughters softball tournament. The rooms are terrible. They don't even have a refrigerator or microwave in the double bed rooms. When I requested one, I was told only the king rooms have them. So my children and I had to stay in one of those. Staying in a hotel for a week with children makes... More

The hotel is easily accessible from the KCI/MCI airport as it is one of the first hotels you'll see when driving into Lawrence. It is a large facility with abundant parking all around the complex. It offers a nice indoor pool and a wide seating area in the lobby. The hotel structure itself is rather old with room amenities that... More

I stayed for two nights for work. The conference I attended was also at the hotel, and the staff did a great job with the event, from an attendee's point of view. My main complaint is that my room was on the end of the hall, and every time someone opened the door to get to the stairs or pool... More

The hotel was just okay. There was a buzzing noise coming from the vents. Very annoying but I didn't bring it to the attention of the management. The bed was pretty comfortable. The rooms were outdated and unattractive. But the best element was the breakfast buffet. It was $11 but very good. Pancakes, sausage links, patties, plain eggs, cheesy eggs,... More

our stay at the hotel was good. But the bar experience was not so good. The bar manager kept coming out and greeting people but he ignored my wife and I. I didn't that much of it the first day but my wife did. So the next time we paid attention. This time we sat at they bar. And again... More

So, location is great.....exterior-broken damaged concrete sidewalk. ..worn out furniture. ..cool atrium pool....house keeping unreliable. ..Staff was mostly nice, not very informative about local restaurants. Did not warn guests during a tornado warning in the middle of the night....needs serious renovation and retraining

If you are anywhere near Kansas City and you need to rest overnight, look no further than this Holiday Inn in Lawrence, KS. The interior is undergoing a great remodeling which will really beautify the already attractive hotel and restaurant. All rooms share a fantastic balcony overlooking a resort - like inside swimming pool and jacuzzi. You will be hard... More

I know it's summer and humid in Lawrence.. But a smell of mold or mildew shoots out of my room's air conditioner. The lobby area also wreaks of chlorine as this one of those 'Holidome's' from way back that has an enclosed pool in the atrium of the building... Maybe that contributes to the dampness of the air in the... More

Great indoor pool. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and helped me find great food and fun attractions in the area. They said they were undergoing renovations, but I didn't see any construction from my ground floor room or the public areas. Good restaurant with bar.
