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 Bathroom was clean, room also, but outdated, quite spacious (the one on the pool side).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

Thank you for your review! I'm so glad that you enjoyed our pool but I do want to apologize for the confusion at breakfast. 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

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times since I was a freshman in college and it’s still mediocre despite having all the makings of a great college town hotel. The Good: - It’s located right off of I-70 and is only a five minute drive to campus and downtown Lawrence - They have a great pool and hot tub... More

I have nothing but the nicest things to say about the staff at this property, genuine, caring staff, excellent food in the pub, and beautiful updated lobby. Rooms were clean and need was soft, great night sleep. Had a room at the end of the hall that was quiet and close to an exit.
