“Best Motel on our vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This motel was the best we stayed in during the past year. Very clean rooms and lobby. Excellent service at check by a well trained, well mannered young man. Nice indoor swimming pool. Soundproof rooms and no road noise.

Our room was very clean, modern, and pleasant. Night staff was very friendly and welcoming. Will stay there again, as we will be visiting the KU campus frequently. One caution: trash is collected at 6:30 am on Saturday mornings (really!). Ask for a room away from the dumpster if you want to sleep!

Traveling as much as I do and with the large amount of items I have to move into and out of my room, the outside doors are a huge benefit for me. The breakfast has been greatly enhanced and the breakfast staff work their butts off.

Had full breakfast (although would like more low sugar, non processed items including fruit and veggie, possibly low sugar smoothies and green smoothies). Also had pool which kids loved and pull out bed in addition to two queens. All 5 of us slept very comfortably.

I got overcharged for someones' mistake. Tho' I got refunded a credit, I had to pay my bill to avoid interest charges and now have a credit to use. Construction was going on at the inter section, the pool water was cold, and the hot tub was out but the breakfast was good and place is clean/comfortable.

We have stayed at this motel many times when in Lawrence and we found that the rooms within the main building are much nicer and roomier (likely newer). We have found that the rooms within the older outdoor access wing are not as large and the bathrooms are small and cramped for larger people. The staff service is good and breakfast is always great.

The exceptional staff take care of small and big needs (e.g. need extra blanket, making sure we had a quiet room) in this super-clean and pleasant hotel. Beds are super comfy and televisions large (although a bit limited in cable offerings). Stayed in interior room in main building. Only issue was they ran out of breakfast food (hence, the lower rating on value). We have stayed here many times and never seen that happen, but it looked like it was due to an unusually large number of hungry teens and children present near the end of breakfast. We didn't want to complain about it, so just went to Wheatfields downtown.
