Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DerekOfColo A great stay here in Lawrence
I had not stayed at this property in a few years, and I was pleasantly surprised with my stay.
The front desk staff was amazing during checkin and provided my with great benefits since I am a platinum rewards club member.
They offered me different options for the breakfast since I was on a weird work schedule those few days.
I recommend getting an outside facing room, that way if you don't want to hear all the pool noise, you will avoid it.
The room was very comfortable, great working ventilation, and good reception on the internet access. I wish the bedside lamps had outlets built into them for phone charging, but I did locate a multi outlet surge protector under onside of the bed, so I used that...
Hope to see you again soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sann1 Not what we were promised!
I have stayed at this hotel numerous times for business. This particular time, I called to arrange an early check-in, as we had an early wedding to attend. When I called to confirm, I was told on the phone that our room was ready. Upon arrival, our room was not yet ready. We waited approximately an hour before being able to check in. Although I truly appreciate the staff's efforts to get our room ready prior to the standard check-in time, I feel like they should communicate better so we don't get one report on the phone, and another upon arrival!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hopp5 We had a football tournament and all of our needs were meet.
With all the rooms booked for a weekend football tournament. All of our needs were met with and taken care of during our two day stay. The pool was great for the kids and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves during the stay. Thanks,

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stessmac Hotels know how to get ya
Beware of the advanced pay special rate. Yea great price, but you cannot cancel even if it's a life and death situation. Just make sure you're planning on staying otherwise you can't get your money back.
I'm a tall guy and while standing in the shower I had to practically hunch over to reach the shower head and if I stood completely vertical my head touched the ceiling. Bathroom vents didn't work and shower leaked everywhere. Couldn't swap rooms because hotel was packed.
No shuttle? Really? College town with a bunch of sports all the time and no shuttle?
Poolside room wasn't even a pool side room. It just gave you a separate walk out from your room. And the poolside door had so much give that if you drop kicked the door you could break into any room there.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ken27 Average hotel with inept staff
Reasonable value at discounted price. Limited food on premises. Tiny workout room. Small pool. The only remarkable aspect of the property is the inept staff.

We stayed one night and had a very enjoyable experience. Room was very clean and enjoyed the resturant and service there. We came in a little before check in and Christy behind the desk was extremely helpful in getting us a room. Overall rate the experience we had as excellent!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bartman2013 Great place to stay
Everything is great. The best breakfast I had all week on the road. I will drive the extra miles to Lawrence to stay here instead of staying in Topeka or KC. The restaurant staff in the morning is the best.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BradK1069 Old HoliDome design. Smell chlorine everywhere. Musty old rooms. Horrible design
The strong smell of chlorine makes the lobby sitting area terrible, unusable. This is a bad representation of the Holiday Inn brand. Indoor pools are great. But not when they are open directly to the rooms which causes the sounds and the humidity and chlorine smells to permeate the guest rooms.
