Nice room, comfortable bed, sitting area with television, hot breakfast in the morning. Everything was nice except price. Same room in Topeka 20 miles further across interstate 70 is $80 cheaper!! Should have done more research.

Very nice motel.

Pros: Same as above.
Cons: Fix that south entrance key card access!
Location: Motel was located on a main arterial street with easy access to surrounding businesses, including shopping and dining. Easy driving distance to KU.
I stayed 6/20/15 through 6/24/15 and hope I didn't get charged for 6/19/15 as indicated in your records. The motel was clean, the staff was friendly and very helpful. This includes the front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, and breakfast staff. I followed up with a positive phone call direct to the manager. One thing to note: The south entrance key card did not work throughout my stay. This door would have been more convenient for me to use since my room was close to it. If you went out, you could not get back in unless you walking around the motel to the front entrance. They said they would get it fixed but did not.

Good value for the money

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
Our experience was decent. The only problem I had was the beer bottle that was in the safe. Not that I used the safe but my child found the beer bottle in there. I am sure it is still in there today. The doors seem a bit thin since we could hear people in the hall almost like they were inside our room.

Friendly staff.

Pros: Free breakfast
Cons: housekeeping noisy in hallways in the morning.
Convenient to shopping. We stayed 5 nights over Christmas, the heating unit only worked after 5 or 6 p.m. otherwise blew cool air, no thermostat so couldn't run it at night, got too hot. We were visiting our son and family for Christmas and weren't in the room during the daytime so didn't inquire as to whether the unit in our room might not have been in proper working order. If you plan to stay at this hotel in winter check with reception re the heat. The rooms aren't vacuumed daily but not a problem if you aren't messy people. Beds were comfortable.

Very conveniently located and rooms are very clean.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The staff of the hotel are very helpful, and the rooms are very clean. There is ample space in them, and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast is offered which is nice. It faces a movie theater so it is nice if you need entertainment, and it is down Iowa from KU. Also, they have a plan for KU parents to earn extra nights. The price of the hotel is fair. I have stayed here on multiple occasions, and I recommend it.

small pool on outskirts of town

this hotel is on the far south side of town, on the very outskirts of lawrence. if you want a hotel near downtown or more centrally located, this is not the spot for you. there is walmart across the street, and the hotel itself is built on the parking lot of the only movie theater in town. target is close by, as well as ihop restaurant. but that's about it. most of lawrence is further north. of course, if this doesn't bother you than no problem. but you will definitely need to drive to get most other places. the pool is also very, very small! i've seen larger in residential backyards. definitely a one-family pool. unless you really want to get to know other guests. they are also pretty pricey compared to other hotels in lawrence. other than that no complaints.

The hotel was absolutely gorgeous & you could tell all the furniture & everything had been redone recently. All sorts of great dining, shopping & entertainment within walking distance. HIGHLY recommend.
