Clean and quiet room with a comfortable bed. Free airport transfer. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Lawrence is a suburb so has suburb food chains nearby, Starbucks, etc within walking distance of hotel.

Hotel's Favorite
This is a quaint, clean establishment. The rooms are great, breakfast is simple yet elegant. Absolutely great for business trips and it's close to the airport. Would definitely recommend to others. Real VALUE FOR MONEY.

We arrived midnight from Los Angeles and called the hotel as instructed in the advertisement to request transportation to the hotel, I was very poorly attended because the front desk was very rude and did not properly explain where to pick up the shuttle, I had to call 4 times

I am sorry for the issues you experienced locating our shuttle and for the driver’s lack of customer service upon pick up. Rest assured we take customer service very seriously and we have taken the appropriate disciplinary action to prevent this from occurring in the future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your hotel room upon checking in. I also sent you direct message earlier this week and I have yet to hear back from you. If you would like to discuss this matter in greater detail you have my contact information. Regards, Michael

The hotel has small rooms, a coffee served in the reception with few options and the worst service: the attendants are so rude. In fact, a bad relationship between cost and satisfaction. Avoid problems and search for another option.

When we exchanged emails prior to you posting this review I offered my assistance, and to investigate the matter for you, and I never received a response. Please feel free to email me if you would like me to look for you. Michael

Hey, how easy is it to get to manhattan or Brooklyn via public transport? Is the nearest train/subway walkable
I think not. I have returned to the airport with the shuttle bus and from there I took the air train to Jamaika station. Next to the station is the subway station that brings you to New York

Hi - can you please message me directly. I do not have a staff member that speaks French but based on a rough translation it looks like you have a billing question. Please message me through trip advisor directly or call me at 5165963000 and I will be glad to assist you.

"rude people, bad information about hotel airport transfer"
"I'd imagine the rooms higher up would be quieter than the 2nd floor we were on"
"Make sure you confirm the shuttle time for your return trip to JFK"
"We had double beds; we did not inquire of other options. We are more comfortable in a queen, but were grateful & comfortable."
"If you're going to stay here, take the train into the city. It's inexpensive, easy and very comfortable."
