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.

I travel extensively and it's rare that I'm complete shocked by a hotel room. This Holiday Inn did exactly that. Checking in was a nice experience. The front desk agent was personable and professional. There was an early season brutal cold spell hitting the area. They had complimentary apple cider set up near the front desk which was a nice...

This place is awful. The rooms are old and dirty and in desperate need of renovation. It's impossible to sleep because every time the doors open next to you it makes a loud banging sound. Not to mention the old lumpy pillows. The television is high def but the channels are not so it looks awful. Stay away.

I needed one night on a KU game day and booked this hotel for a good rate through Hotwire. This hotel was in business decades ago when I lived in Lawrence so I knew it was a older property. The lobby is quite large and bright. We didn't use the indoor pool but it looked like it was well maintained.... More

This is a nice, older but updated and very clean. All 50 of us, senior tour, were warmly greeted with the hotel staff with lemonade and cookies. They got all of us into our rooms, luggage and all in record speed. Staff was attentive and friendly. Comfortable mattresses, fair pillows, everything working fine. The restaurant didn't open until 7 a.m.... More
