Friendly staff. Nice room. Comfortable bed.
No, everything was great!
The breakfast attendant, hotel employee. She is a gem! Takes amazing care of all the guests and makes us feel at home. Look forward to seeing her every time we stay. The hotel is great overall. Super clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was really good! Lot's of healthy options. Internet was fast! Staff was friendly!
Window opened only a little bit. Refrigerator was very noisy, thus I unplugged it.
The spaciousness of our room.
I didn't like how far away from I70 the hotel was, but it was surrounded by lots of great restaurants and stores.

Very convenient location. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast.
Air conditioner had a problem the first night. It was fixed the next day.
I plan to come to the area for the next few years to visit my daughter's family. This hotel will become my home away from home!
Some of the staff members were reluctant to offer a greeting as I moved about the the hotel premises
Nice location on the edge of town. Close to some major shopping stores (Target, Kohls)
The workout room is surprisingly horrible for a newer hotel. Only three machines in the room; one worked. Lights can only be turned on by an employee. TV did not work
Staff were very pleasant and accommodating.
Would have liked a more comfortable smoking area outside.
Comfort, cleanliness, breakfast.
Free Internet, free parking.
Staff at check in/check out was not very friendly. Not rude, just not friendly. Beds were not comfortable. Breakfast was not well stocked and food did not seem fresh.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This hotel is FANTASTIC!! The people were so helpful, the rooms were large and comfortable & the location was excellent. The beds were TO DIE FOR!! 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.
