Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ricardowales Yikes 80;s hotel in 2014
Sorry to say probably the worse HI I have stayed in. The bar guys are very good, location, ambience are not good, bizarre chlorine infused hotel due to pool location. Rooms good size although a little dated and ground floor rooms smelt very damp, requested a move.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Porsche13 Great stay
Only few things to complain--the heater is not warm at all, so I requested am additional blanket. Except that everything is very great. Anyway, the price is quite high. Location is quite far from Downtown. Except these tiny complaints, everything is very great! LOVE the service!

Left a non Holiday Inn hotel because of inadequate service and poor standards of quality. Holiday Inn more than met my needs. Thank you for your professionalism. I will book my next visit to Lawrence Ks. with your Hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Happy with flexible check-in and check-out!
Our weekend stay was to attend a swim meet and desk staff was great because we were able to check in early on Friday and get some rest before returning to the pool for the finals competition. We also were allowed a late checkout on Sunday so we could rest prior to finals. Had no problems booking this stay using reward points.

The overall stay was quite excellent , The hotels appearance both outside and in , were receptive .
The overall room great , the bed of course as mentioned , a little to soft for my taste. This of course is one's opinion . as others wish the softness .
The pool area and cafe , though not personally used looked great and inviting . People at wedding did comment they were pleased ..
The bar was visited , the service was great and the sports theme , approved ..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Haparev Great staff, property a little worn
I had a great experience at this hotel thanks to the staff. I got upgraded to a room with a microwave and refrigerator, which was nice, but it also had no windows to the outside. The windows were to the atrium with the pool.
I was there during sports team season, I think, because there were a lot of screaming teenagers until 11pm at night.
But it was a comfortable stay with reliable internet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brucknerian about my stay
The breakfast staff were very polite and attentive. I also appreciated the ladies who operated the front desk during the daytime. They were energetic and desirous to please. Particularly the young woman with glasses.
The noise and overall peacefulness of the hotel makes this an attractive place to stay.
One thing they may consider is having small refrigerators in the larger rooms (king bed). It is very useful for those who are staying for a couple days and want to store some food.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Hotel is deteriorating
Their staff was very friendly, but that was about all that saved this place. It was expensive for what I got. Their hot tub did not work. Their shower's water pressure was weak. There was room service dirty dishes outside in the hall all night long and it started to stink. The Comfort Inn across the street is 5 times nicer. Stay there!!!!

Since the last time we stayed here, the hotel has added a breakfast buffet that is a reasonable price or even included with certain room rates. This buffet is a great addition to a hotel that is not close to other breakfast places.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Lawrence Holiday Inn on my recent business trip to Kansas. The hotel was clean and the service was fast and friendly. I will stay at the Lawrence Holiday Inn again, and will recommend this hotel to others.

My room was mostly clean, but I noticed my white socks were very soiled from walking on the carpet. Yuck. The room had a mildew smell and there was condensation all over the AC Vent in the room... hmmm maybe a connection there? I wish I had requested a different room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thundergod76 Good hotel. Beds need upgraded.
Overall my stay at this hotel was pleasant. Everything was as expected for a Holiday Inn. My only complaint is with the beds. The beds, in my opinion, should be higher quality. Yes, I know it's a hotel. But you still should be able to sleep the night without a back ache.
Other than that, it is a nice place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HPAppraiser Horrible coffee; incompetent billing
I don't want brand of coffee is used but if it's because it's cheap, you should change. The coffee in the room, the restaurant and at meeting breaks was horrible.
Also, the billing had several errors.

The Holiday Inn in Lawrence KS is just off the I 70 turnpike and has a very large parking lot. Breakfast was a well stocked Buffet and ample helpings were always refilled. Service staff cleared away finished dishes and took an extra moment and check on guest. Overall the site was well maintained and staff made aery effort to be accommodating. Very nice weekend stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Duncan's Dad Steve's visit
The property was very nice in terms of staff, room comfort and services. The carpet in the convention area smelled and needed serious cleaning or replacement. The general cleanliness of the common area near the check-in (chairs/tables/etc) pool area and pool side restrooms were basically ignored!! They were terribly unkempt and needed considerable attention. I realize the hotel was full, but staff needed to be assigned to public/common areas to keep it cleaned and picked up. I had to call the front desk to inform them about the men's room that was pool side. It was a disaster!! But, everything else about the stay was delightful. Thanks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul in South Carolina WILL STAY HERE AGAIN
This property was clean, inviting, spacious rooms, a really nice indoor pool in an atrium setting, friendly staff, and in a quiet location. The pool does not open until 9 am which miffed my wife (who likes to do laps in the morning). And there are a number of rooms that overlook the atrium/pool. We did not stay in those rooms and I would not want to (noise, the rooms have a feel of being in an outdoor motel setting). Our room was a regular hotel type room and we were very happy with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by llynch419 Good decent hotel
Very accommodating staff- rooms are clean- breakfast buffet just OK. Room AC seemed to be stuck at 64- moved it up but it always went back to that. Overall a good hotel though rooms could use refridgerators. I got a group rate so may not of been as happy if I had paid a higher rate. Hallways and entranceways are a bit outdated but rooms are clean

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jksween Ok hotel stay
We were here for a family wedding. Initially I was told that there were no king beds available in the hotel when I inquired if we could get one in the room block. I found them online via their web site and the person said that she had no control over their online inventory. When we arrived the front desk staff was really helpful at putting our group together. This was great for reuniting with family.
The room was ok. I was glad we got the room with the fridge, not all have them and my family all used it because their rooms didn't have one.
We had issues with our AC, it wasn't working for the first few days and then it was working in full force and our room was a freezer.
We also had issues with fruit flies in our room. This was also the case in my brother and sister's rooms on either side of us. We didn't have any garbage in our room either.
I heard complaints from all of my extended family about there not being breakfast included in the stay. This is so common now and would have been nice. There is a restaurant, but when you have a family of 5 you don't want to spend $9/person on a breakfast buffet.
The pool was nice, but it's in the open air lobby. The AC was cranked so low that it made swimming not appealing because the air temp was so cold.
The stay was so so. I would not choose to stay here again.
