The owners live on site and work this property. They are very friendly and helpful. We stayed here parents weekend for University of Kansas. All hotels book up months in advance for this popular weekend. The Virginia Inn, much like all other hotels in Lawrence, requires a 2 night min stay, on major event weekends. The breakfast what's a bit... More

We love older motels and this is a great example. Perfect quiet, clean clean , lovely couple do a great job managing. Beautiful bedding ( see photo) fluffy duvet and lots of pillows . Breakfast with fresh bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice and good coffee. Very reasonable price. We actually overslept the motel is SO quiet!

I chose this motel based on the ratings. Not that it was a horrible place, but I just don't understand how this place has a star rating above 4. The Virginia Motel is an old 1950 or 60's motel that admittedly The owners have put in an effort to update. They painted the walls, added some new tiling to the... More

We chose this motel for a two-night rest on the July 4th week-end and we were not disappointed. We happily discovered that most fireworks are prohibited in Lawrence! The check-in was efficient and friendly. The room was spacious, very clean and equiped with fridge, microwave and coffee machine: this was essential as there was no breakfast included in the price...

Traveling near Kansas City? Check out the Virginia Inn in Lawrence, KS! And pay the little extra to upgrade to the 'suite' (Room 145) with the hot tub! Run over to Biemers BBQ (just 5 minutes away) for some takeout, fill the hot tub, turn on the game, watch it on the big screen...Well worth it!!

I stayed here overnight while in town visit KU for a project. I just needed the basics, so I was attracted to the Virginia by the price and the proximity to the university. But it was a pleasant surprise that the VI is such a nice place. My room was clean with a good air conditioner and a big flat-screen... More

We stayed overnight passing through and selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor ratings. The front desk was friendly, the rooms large and clean and the bed linens fresh and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again. The cold breakfast was unexceptional but again clean and certainly not unappealing. It is an excellent, albeit no-frills motor-lodge. Oh they also had a... More

Was in Lawrence, KS for a basketball tournament. Our procrastinating team manager failed to secure rooms well in advance so we were picking from what was left room-wise in the area to avoid having to drive back/forth to Topeka or KC. I've seen the Virginia Inn rated everywhere from 4 to 1 depending upon the service you look at. I'm... More
