We stayed at the Lawrence Holiday Inn because of its proximity to my son's home. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a fridge and microwave in the room. There is a nice pool, that was seldom used. The restaurant had a very nice breakfast buffet on the weekends, and during the week, the breakfast was just order off... More

Stayed here over the Memorial day weekend for a wedding. It is located right off the tollway. Everyone I dealt with who worked there was courteous and helpful. Any requests made were handled efficiently and satisfactorily. The room was a basic hotel room. Ours was o overlooking the pool, so it was rather noisy from kids playing, and window faced... More

This Holiday Inn is off the toll road. It is an older hotel, but is in the process of being renovated. The front desk staff (Chris) was very nice and gave me a quiet room as I asked for. The room was clean and had been painted recently. The beds were very comfortable. I have stayed at other hotel chains... More

I decided to travel down to Lawrence to visit some friends that were graduating from KU this weekend. I booked the hotel based on price but it looked pretty good for the price point. Check in was a tad bit slow but the receptionist was very friendly, though he never checked to see an ID which I thought was a... More

We were fortunate to get an early check in on a very busy Saturday in Lawrence. Hotel probably hasn't been updated since the early 2000's. Room was ok, had a musty smell, but not overpowering. I really haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in quite sometime, and this one probably wouldn't bring me back to stay again. On the positive,... More

Good value for the price. Restaurant and lounge were handy and staff friendly. My room was not worn as some reviews indicated. It was a king room with a sofa. Bathroom was clean and perfectly functional. Good location just off the Turnpike and near the University.

I have to admit that given the option of booking a place for myself, I would not choose here. It was an acceptable enough option because my job took care of all the arrangements. Needs some renovations because the carpet and the sofa seemed so old. Pets are allowed (at least I think so because I met a dog in... More

Stayed here for the second time, so got what I expected - nothing more, nothing less. It is an average Holiday Inn hotel, good to stay if you are on business. Bathroom was clean, room also, but outdated, quite spacious (the one on the pool side). Bed comfortable, noise level ok. Breakfast was really good, but didn't liked bar food.... More

I have not stayed @ Holiday Inn in ages - because their quality is so uneven. For my money, Hampton Inn is a far better / more consistent choice, even though Hilton has devalued HHonors points too often... I stayed @ this hotel because I was with a group and they selected it. Hotel staff was nice. Hotel lobby is... More

Our kids really enjoyed the pool here, it was a pretty big school and had a nice hot tub. The pool is in the center of the hotel with rooms all around. There is also a game room right off the pool area near the exercise room. There is a large sitting area near the lobby that was nice for... More

We do have a separate menu for the free kids’ meals and that can be confusing. I do hope that you consider staying with us again soon - We'd love to have you back! Heather S.... More
