Our experience here was pretty poor. We stayed here one night for a night out away from the kids. We showed up around 5, it was a hot day, so we were wanting to go get cleaned up to go to dinner. The lobby was pretty chaotic because of a wedding taking place there. We checked in and went to... More

This was a nice hotel. Spacious new rooms. Very nice bathroom although a little narrow. Not crazy about our room which was SO noisy. Between the noise in the hallway, the a/c & the fan, it was quite a sleepless night. My mom stayed in another room in the sane hotel where they left ear plugs due to noise below.... More

I'll make this short and sweet. You stay at the Eldridge in order to be in a unique setting, have fun staying right downtown on Massachusetts street, and to enjoy hotel staff who really hope to please the customer. You don't stay at the Eldridge if you want precision reservations systems, modern AC/Heating, level floors, extreme quiet, or self parking.... More

I really love this hotel and it's in a great location. The reason for 4 stars is we couldn't regulate the room temp. It had 2 choices hot and to cold. We stayed 2 nights and I was a bit disappointed they didn't clean the room better.

Great hotel, affordable, spacious rooms, and right downtown and in the thick of it. Beds could be slightly more comfortable and having the AC right by the bed means a little more noise than I'd like. Staff were wonderful and $5 glasses of wine in the bar on Tuesdays makes it a must!

The rooms are modern, quiet, comfortable and clean, yet the charm of this hotel's historic past remains, complete with the resident ghost of Colonel Eldridge, who is said to haunt Room 506. If you are planning to stay in Lawrence for the food, shopping and the general ambiance of this wonderfully eccentric small college town, the location of this hotel... More

We used to live in Lawrence but on a recent visit we finally got to stay at the Eldridge. The place was always very appealing and it is the perfect location - right on Mass St! The staff was very friendly and very accomodating to our rental car needs and baggage storage. The room was clean, updated, smelled nice, and... More

I have always wanted to stay at this hotel. When a wedding brought us back to Lawrence, we picked the Eldridge. The check in and check out were both super quick. Our room overlooked Mass. Street, there were huge windows that let in a lot of sunshine. The rooms and bathroom were well cleaned. They even provide a sound machine... More

I have always wanted to stay at The Eldridge, and it definitely did not disappoint. We booked the honeymoon suite for the night of our wedding. I spoke with the hotel beforehand to see if we might be able to get in early to take some wedding photos. They were extremely accommodating and allowed us into the suite by about... More

I was expecting a nice hotel, but the Eldridge went far above and beyond my expectations. The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Check-in was speedy as was check-out. The room was absolutely gorgeous. It was clear that a lot of thought have been given to the set-up of the room and... More
