Most disgusting bed ever. Stains all in the sheets from past guests. Just awful. AC didn’t work. I’ve never stayed at a hotel like this. Shouldn’t even be offered through travelocity

Hotel was ok.

Staff was always nice and friendly. Decor was nice. Beds were decent to sleep on. Sinks and toilet clean. Carpet may have been vacuumed down the middle but definitely needed to vacuum under the air conditioner (cobwebs) and along the beds and corners. The indoor pool was too cold to swim in and the hot tub was barely warm. Breakfast variety was ok. Make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, potatoes, fruit, cereal, juice,

Old run down. Overpriced considering the conditions.

All the info you really need to know

Pros: Breakfast variety
Cons: Paper thin walls, less than helpful staff
Location: Good variety of food and KU nearby
I'll leave all of the personal details out of this and give the information that anyone reading a review actually cares about. Two people were working check-in, the lady that helped us was short and curt and didn't even bother to welcome us or greet us, not a big deal but still uncalled for and they were not overwhelmingly busy. It's an old motel and it doesn't matter how much you renovate, it's still outdated, taking that into consideration, it's not too bad. Fairly clean room, definitely dark and not well lit, newer mattress but VERY firm so keep that in mind. Good water pressure and temp (once you figure out how it works!). Biggest problem is that the walls are paper thin, you can here conversations, plumbing, and televisions in all of the rooms around you as well as anyone outside. Breakfast was very good, all things considered, a nice variety of cold and hot foods and everything was kept well stocked. All in all, not bad, but just like any other weekend when there is a KU game, let alone a KU/KSU game, everyone hikes their rates and had this room been $70, it would've been fine but with everything included, this room/stay was not worth the $110 we shelled out by a long shot.

Close to KU

Pros: Comfort and location
Cons: Parking lot.
Location: Restaurants close. Located close to KU and Lawrence.
Stayed one night on a Visit to KU. Easy to get to and from KU Campus and Lawrence. Room was standard comfortable clean with exception of mold in the shower/tub. Staff was nice. Parking lot needs repair big pot holes.

Good location.

Motel was dated but comfortable and quiet. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool but hot tub was out of order.

Blech.

This place was quiet with a n almost noiseless A/C and I got a good nights sleep, but our room was outdated and the carpet actually felt "sticky!" It smelled somewhere between too much bleach and cat pee. Not sure. Our room was never made up and we had to go get our own towels. Hopefully we'll never have to stay here again. Sleep good...smell/feel bad.
