Nice, clean, hotel with a limited, but free continental breakfast. Conveniently located near a CVS and several places to eat. Stay in an inside room though, because the outside ones that my friends stayed in had bugs and were dirtier.

The rate we received for a 2 bedroom was very good. We checked in a little late, but were helped quickly by the clerk at the desk. You could tell the room had received new soft goods which was nice. The one issue was that it was a very hot, humid day and the AC in the two rooms was... More

We stayed here for a wedding last weekend and were limited on our overnight options, as Lawrence had many things going on Saturday night. We booked online beforehand, at a decent rate. But wasn't significantly cheap by any means. We go to the lobby to check in to find one overworked staff member dealing with a sizable line while others... More

We are doing cross country with our 65lb golden retriever. Since she is considered a large dog I have pre-booked all of our hotel rooms on their web sites, called to verify each hotel would reserve a dog friendly room on the lowest level for our family. I arrived and was told that they had neglected to give me a... More

Employees didn't pass on info to next shift. No microwave, finally got one didn't work. A/C in some of the rooms didn't work very well. I had 3 rooms and I don't think I would ever stay at this Best Western again. Not enough help for the breakfast, running out of items, the lady that was working was fabulous, I... More

I would not stay at this Hotel again. The check-in was very slow, the breakfast area was not clean and the pool had a lot of white stuff floating in the pool. For $100.00 a night I would expect better. I usually stay with the Honors group when traveling. I do pay a little more but I get a LOT... More

I stayed here for one night. I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the University of Kansas campus where I had an event to attend. Be aware that there are inside rooms in the main building where there is also the ice machine, a pool, vending, and the breakfast area AND then there is a two-story outdoor-entry area... More

We stayed one night on 6/3/16 (3 adults, 3 children under age three) When we first got into our room, it was very hot and the A/C was not on. We turned it on, went down to the pool, and came back to the room. It was still extremely warm in the room because the A/C was not working correctly.... More
