The best part: their conscientious staff called me because I forgot a small bag in the room. Because we were already 2 hours west of there, I did not want to drive back. They reassured me that the bag would be safe, and helped me get the bag picked up via FedEx. I much appreciated that extra step. Stayed one...

Staff was friendly. Room didn't feel clean. Hairs on blanket. Room smelled like smoke even though nonsmoking room. Location is good and had free newspaper. Hasn't been updated in a long time. Room is very small.

DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE! We spent $86 on a small room with one queen bed and TWO ROACHES in the bathroom. When we first checked in on Monday, 6/13/16, there was a small, dead baby roach in the bathroom. I decided to look the other way. After all, I’m 7 months pregnant and have other things to worry about....

There were not many options in Lawrence for the graduation weekend for KU. Found this motel early. Location was perfect. Close to the university and our daughter's apartment. Room was clean but looked dated. Came with a refrigerator and microwave but the microwave was on top of the frig which was under the rack to hang clothes therefore not any...

Dirty bed, small bathroom. We expected much better based on the reviews, very disappointed, so much so that we considered getting a refund and going elsewhere if it wasn't so late. The air conditioner worked well although at times made unusual noises.

The room was clean, the TV has a large number of hi-def channels (Direct TV), and the overall experience was OK. I was disappointed that you cannot obtain a refund if you reserve a room online. Left early in the morning (around 5:15am) and the free breakfast wasn't ready yet (I think it isn't ready until 6:00am). The staff was...

Normally, when I stay somewhere with my children I'm freakishly obsessed with cleaning it before they even walk in the room. When we came into our room it was clean, smelled fresh, and safe. Of course, I sprayed everything with Lysol disinfectant.! But the experience was awesome. The staff was friendly, efficient, and kind. And the breakfast was better than...

The reviews on this are very misleading. We came to a room that was dirty with a broken curtain rod and cracked bathroom floor. I was not expecting a nice hotel I was just hoping for clean and in good condition.

We've tried lots of pet-friendly motels in Lawrence and this is one of the best. Check in was easy and friendly, room was dated but clean. Not many frills, but this is just what we needed. Will stay again.
