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

I currently live in California but am originally from Kansas.

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

My beau and I stayed here on a side trip while we were on our way to visit my grandparents. We visited Lawrence to see AFI at the Granada. Overall, the stay was great. It made me wish we had more time to spend to enjoy the pool, arcade and other amenities. We did order room service breakfast, which was... More

To be fair, I Priceline(d) this hotel and got it for $60 bucks a night -- which was much better than paying $159 at Springhill Marriott (who refuses use of Marriott Reward nights) or $139 at Hampton Inn. We arrived VERY early 10:30 am and were greeted with open arms, allowed in our room immediately (such a nice thing) and... More

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
