“A Great Place to Stay at KU”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

Whenever we return to Lawrence, for parent's weekend, football games, sorority Mother's Day or Dad's Day, or graduation, we stay at the Econo Lodge. The rooms are clean and well-kept, the service is fast & friendly, and the free breakfast is a nice bonus! Plus the price tends to be lower than most of the other decent hotels in town. The manager and his family always make us feel right at home. A great value for the weekend - you won't be disappointed staying here.

Awakened by what I think was a drug deal gone bad or a bad argument. Requested management to call police. They said they would take care of it. They didn't. Argument continued. All this is at 3:30 am. Made a second request. No improvement. Would have called police but did not want my car damaged. This motel is rated inaccurately by TA as far as I am concerned. Motel is outdated. I believe there are better choices very close.

I stayed at the Econo Lodge in Lawrence, KS where the room was very comfortable, clean, reasonably priced, and quiet. The hosts at this hotel were customer friendly, polite, and helpful. I especially liked the idea that our scarce resources were not wasted on excessive washing of linens. The laundry room with ice was only accessible to guests, which was another smart business choice to avoid vandalism and waste as well as provide safety for the guests. I checked out several other motels before choosing the Econo Lodge motel, where I could back my car up to the curb in front of my room saving time/energy on loading and unloading. The Econo Lodge is located just a few miles off the toll portion of I-70 west of Kansas City.

We booked this hotel at the last minute and were a little apprehensive based on stays at other Econo Lodges. However, there eneded up being no need to worry! The room was clean and a comfortable size. The manager was very friendly and helpful and recommended a great restaurant. In the morning we went to the lobby for a nice spread of breakfast food. The only complaint would be the noise. The walls are paper thin and we could hear people going in and out during the night. The hotel is within a 5 minute drive to KU and Mass St.
Great value. I'd definitely stay again.
