“Overpriced for the quality.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2009

Yes carpet and some furnishings are new, but everything is pretty cheap. Bed was tolerable but not very good. Superficially clean, but look a bit and lots of deep grime. We were in town for a KU game so cost was $131 - way overpriced for quality. We stayed in KC the night before for about 1/2 the cost and 3 times the quality.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2008

The room was pretty clean. It had new carpet, drapes including liners, & bed spread that matched the drapes. It had a huge new TV, Ironing board & iron. Sun lamp and great soap & shampoo. They were in the process of replacing all the Mirrors, dressers and night stands- the old one looked pretty good still. The bed an extra pad and was VERY comfortable.


Now for the bad stuff:

The phone and electrical sockets were so dirty there were almost black. When we threw the bed together the next morning we could see dirt streaks on the blanket. The coffee pot looked like it hadn't been washed in weeks - but I Always wash that before I use it.


We left for 1 hour at 8 am - before we checked out and someone came in to our room and went through our packed stuff and took our camera & one of my husband’s shirts. We did not find this out until we were home. When I called the motel and asked them about this - THEY LAUGHED AT ME

STAY AWAY!!!!!

rdisoso, General Manager at Super 8 Lawrence, responded to this review, June 18, 2009
The hotel has been sold and under new owner and management. We are completely renovating this property new. We have already redone the outside of the building with more landscaping scheduled. All the furniture in the hotel has been replace with new furniture and we have replaced the TV's with 32" LCD TV's. With new carpet being installed within the next 2 weeks, also all interior walls have been redone. I can assure whatever bad experience you may have had with the previous owner or management will not be tolerated at this property. And hopefully we can earn your business again in the future as we work hard to make this one of nicer hotels in Lawrence.

upon check-in the front desk acted like my confirmation number meant nothing...on inquiring about the free high-speed Internet, the front desk said it was completely wireless and required no encryption key (very odd)...upon trying to connect without success, the front desk informed me I needed a special box which they would issue to me so I could connect to the Internet that comes through the electrical wiring (far from wireless)...guest who was parked next to me had all of his gas siphoned out overnight, even though we were both parked near the well lit front door...towels with stains, vanity sink drained very slow, dirty coffee pot

  • Liked — water pressure
  • Disliked — weak Internet security
  • Tips/Secrets — wash the coffee pot before you use, the lid traps old water and is very unsanitary
