Stayed here 2 nights, July 19 and 20. Room was clean, stayed in room 209. Staff was all very friendly. Had drinks at the bar in the evening, very fun place to hang out. Would stay here again if Im ever in Lawrence. Highly recommend

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. Raised a concern with front desk about excessive noise (teenagers actually leaning against the door talking at Midnight). They simply asked them to move down the hall...how about "you are... More

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.

When I arrived I was placed in a first floor room and there is no way I could have slept there. I am sure that if the weather was bad, being in tornado alley, and you needed it you would be very thankful this portion is somewhat protected by being partially below ground level, however, it smelled really, really bad....

This is an older holiday inn that is in need of a face lift. The rooms were ok but nothing great, the pool was ok and the restaurant was just ok for breakfast. Dont think i would stay here again unless they clean the place up.
