I stayed here during a work trip. Being that I was there for work, I needed to be working. But I could not connect to the internet. The person at the front desk said a work order had been placed earlier in the week, and he couldn't do anything but reset the router. Well, that might be a start. So... More

The room was dirty and had a odor. I found it very unexceptable. one of the manager told me they were going to remodel at the end of the season...really why not before the season started. Light bulbs were out no coffee for the coffee pot..Found a dead bug in the bath tub. really?

Was disappointed hot tub wasn't hot. Room was comfortable. TV worked fine. Couldn't connect to internet. Breakfast was good. Wish this box told me how letters I have... told me I must have 200. I keep pressing submit, but it says I don't have enough characters

We went to Lawrence to move our son into college at KU in August. We had an average experience (stayed in newer, smoke-free building), so returned for Parents Weekend. Unfortunately the only room available in town was a smoking room. It was in a separate, much older motel-type building - looks like the Bates Motel. The room smelled so bad... More

If you are looking for an affordable, clean hotel for a short stay in Lawrence, this is the hotel for you. Try to stay in the main building if possible as it is more convenient to all of the amenities.

Convenient to KU with easy access to area attractions. With interior and exterior rooms and pet-friendly rooms as well. Parking is free and breakfast is provided. Within walking distance to restaurants and convenience shopping.

But he was very polite to everyone and worked as quickly as he could. Room was clean. Bed was adequate. Shower was nice, but could of used an exhaust... More

This hotel serves its purpose and was adequate for the short night we spent with a two year old and dog. We were put in the annex, a separate building, probably due to our dog. That was fine but the WiFi connection was not good there. The hotel was not as clean as I expect and was in need of... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The free breakfast was good and contained options for everyone. Our room was in the annex, which is across the parking lot from the main hotel. The room was old and outdated. The bathroom had zero ventilation. The second night our air conditioner leaked and the carpet was wet. The following morning they fixed... More

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.
