As others have written, this hotel has a serious moisture problem. We had originally booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Lawrence, based on its great reviews. We accidentally drove here instead. The lobby looked clean and nice, so when the friendly woman at the front desk offered to transfer our reservation at a slightly cheaper rate, we... More

I stayed in this hotel while in Lawrence for a small conference. It was conveniently located, being off a main road. I appreciated that it has a full restaurant and bar, and the room rate I booked included a breakfast voucher (all wait staff were really great). The front desk staff were nice and upgraded me to an atrium-view room... More

On the positive side, the breakfast was good and the restaurant was clean. However, this was a negative experience for me. For starters (not the worst yet), on the websites I used to book this hotel room, it said that there were microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. This was not correct. When I got to my room, I looked... More

My daughters wedding reception was held at the HI July 19 and the staff was great to work with. We made several trips to try on chair covers and table runners and were welcome every time. The banquet staff were very helpful during our time decorating for the reception, they even offered drinks to us and brought out water while... More

I really enjoy my stays in Lawrence at the Holiday Inn Express on south Iowa street. It is always clean. Breakfast is great. The staff goes above and beyond to make my time there pleasant. I recommend this as a great place to stay, for business or pleasure.

We chose this hotel based on its rating and are unsatisfied. There is a moisture problem in the building so much so that the sheets on the bed feel cold and damp. Suitcases and shoes left on the floor were damp, towels wouldn't dry, etc. We complained to the front desk and they didn't seem surprised at our concern. Really?!... More

Not sure how this dump gets a 3 star rating? Comfort Inn across the street is much nicer and only a 2 star! Rooms are dark and damp. Shower leaked.

Stopped here while driving out west. While the hotel bar/grill was pretty good, the room itself seemed overpriced. We had issues with the internet as I was given the wrong password! I'm sure there are better places to stay in the area.
