Got the queen suite in the main building and loved the room, nice and sunny. My sister has also stayed and did not get the main building and did not like it as well. Thought the breakfast options were awesome!

We have stayed at this hotel twice and enjoyed both stays. Breakfast is excellent! Clean facility and room. Friendly staff! We go to this area several times a year for doctors appointments, and we plan to stay there frequently.

Considering that staying anywhere near KU during basketball season is a challenge, I really should not complain that our family got a room at all, but I will anyway. We had to bring back our daughter early from Thanksgiving break due to her extracurricular activity schedule. We got this room at an ok rate and I was aware it was... More

Blocked off some rooms for a conference we were facilitating nearby. Thought everything was going great until I had to add on an another night to my reservation. Seems like some of our conference attendees reservations were being cancelled for no apparent reason, even the one I added another night to. The staff needs some training on booking rooms.

The prices for hotels in Lawrence can very quite a bit based on what is happening at KU. We've found the Best Western to consistently offer a reasonable rate and always have a clean, spacious room with great hospitality.

The hotel is split into two different buildings. 1 is a standard 3 story hotel with a pool. The second building is a disconnected 2 story motel. This is where I stayed. Room was ok, nothing fancy, no issues though either. Just pictures are deceiving on their website about the two building set up.

We were there during the recent homecoming weekend visiting with other family members. I would recommend this hotel. Breakfast was quite good and had a decent variety. The room was very nice as well. The indoor pool was great also. This hotel is very close to campus, which worked out well for us. The only problem I encountered that I... More

We stayed here a few nights when we took our daughter to college. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is located about a mile from Daisy Hill on the KU campus. The hotel is older and run down. They had a good variety of breakfast options. It was a disappointing experience.

This is an older property, but has been updated inside. Bathroom was very nice. Beds were very firm. Lots of pillows. The wall unit for AC/heat was noisier than many, so it would have been distracting from our sleep if we'd needed it; fortunately, it was a cool night and we were fine with it off. And the full breakfast... More

Needed a good night sleep to get back on the road the next morning. Were placed in the Annex, separate building from the main building. Just wanted to shower, watch a little TV, get a good sleep and move on. Bathroom had hairs on the floor and in the sink. Toilet paper rolls - both were almost empty. TV and... More
