“Excellent value for money, very helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2010

Before you let the negative reviews scare you off, notice that newer ones tend to be pretty good. Seems like things have changed. The nightclub next door that caused problems for one traveler is no longer open.

Keep in mind this is a budget hotel/motel with a few miles on the odometer. It's not sparkling and showy, but still for $60/night I was very pleased. My room was spacious and had a small balcony with table and two chairs.

When you check in, ask for a room facing the lovely park on one side. I didn't even notice it until a day later (I checked in at 1 a.m.) so my room face the parking lot, typical motel fashion. But since most rooms have balconies it would be great to be overlooking the park, and I'm sure quieter, although highway noise was only typical for a motel on a major highway.

The continental breakfast with added hot biscuits & gravy and make-your-own Belgian waffles was more than I expected at this price.

As others have noted, all the staff were helpful, cheerful and friendly.

If you're realistic with your expectations - it is, after all, an older budget motel on a major highway - you'll be satisfied. If you get a room overlooking the park you may be more than satisfied.

Comfortable beds, good AC, and quiet for a good night's sleep. Clean room. Decent fast breakfast included. Pleasant staff. Pool was not ready, but early in the season. I didn't notice the workout room with 4 large pieces of exercise equipment until last day, maybe next time. PC, internet connection, and printer in the lobby worked fine.

We've tried a lot of motels in Lawrence and this is the best value. Rooms are older, but clean, comfortable, and large. Staff is friendly and accommodating. I would recommend seeking this one out even thought it's a little ways off the highway.

Staff friendly & helpful, older rooms but functional & survivable. Problem is the club next door, where the action & noise & argumentative/loud/fistfighting/cop-attracting crowd doesnt start till midnight.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2009

This hotel was a great value for our stay in Lawrence. It was comfortable, clean, and we were especially grateful for the larger-than-a-cube fridge and microwave in the room. We did not try the free breakfast, though. Wireless internet was free, if rather unstable. Staff was very polite and attentitve. Location was good--near where we wanted to go. Parking seemed to fill up quickly. The club next door ("Axis") was loud, though, and annoyed us on the Friday night of our stay, but not enough to keep us up. I didn't notice the noise as much on Saturday. Some of the first floor rooms seem to open up right onto a park, which would be nice in good weather.

  • Liked — great value, comfortable and clean
  • Disliked — loud music from nearby club, spotty wifi

PROS
The room was clean and comfortable. Good location. The downtown area was just a few minutes away where there were lots of good restaurants and fun bars. There is also a great park right next door with disc golf and a playground for the kids. Wireless Internet worked.
CONS
There was nowhere for us to park when we got back around midnight. It seems people were using the hotel parking lot to go to the nightclub next door. There were lots of people from the nightclub just hanging around the parking lot, which was kind of annoying. The room where breakfast was served was way too small, making it quite difficult to get anything.
TO SUM IT UP
It was just ok. I don't suggest staying on a weekend, due to the nightclub next door. Otherwise, the hotel was fine.

We recently spent one night at the Quality Inn in Lawrence. My first choice had been the Hampton but it was booked. While I still prefer the Hampton there, the Quality Inn was adequate. It's an older property but our room was clean and comfortable. There is free wireless and an average buffet breakfast. I would return if the Hampton wasn't available.
