The room door kept coming open at random times. Had to put a chair in front of it to keep it shut.

Beautiful large room, comfortable bed, all the amenities. The bathtub couldn’t hold water very long, even with the plug provided. Water was leaking from the tub onto the floor. Not a big problem for me, but you should check it out. Wonderful stay for the price!

This hotel is about 5 minutes from campus and is surrounded by restraunts and other shopping. The staff was great and the room was large and very comfortable. My only issues: the bedside lamps did not work and 1 of the lightbulbs were burned out in the bathroom. I would still stay there again for the value, location, and comfort.

My only complaint was that the coffee maker didn't work but i just went to the office for coffee and let staff know. They were very apologetic. The room was clean and comfortable. The building is older but well maintained. The Japanese steakhouse next door was decent and right across from it is a grocery store so everything was very convenient.

Nice, quiet and comfortable stay.

Pros: I particularly liked the ramps up to the second floor in lieu of stairs.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Grocery store across the street. Convenient short drive to KU or downtown.
Conveniently located and quiet motel in Lawrence.

Comfortable beds and big rooms

Easy check-in. Desk staff stayed up late for us since I told them we would be close to midnight. I appreciated that. We didn't get breakfast since we slept in till 10am. Check-out time at 11 was wonderful since we got there late. Clean, big rooms. Great quality for the price. I would stay there if we go through the area ever again.
