Found this nice gem of a motel when passing through Lawrence. Family run, clean rooms, and good service. Nice hot items in the breakfast area and good selection of other stuff. Would stay with them again when coming through the area.

This hotel is clean & basic. We weren't spending a lot of time at the hotel so daily needs were met. It is older styled building, no elevators, vending was in a different area as we were on 2nd floor in the back. Breakfast offered several choices. Friendly staff w/a variety of travelers-family, business, special event guests, etc. Light sleepers:...

This hotel is wonderful. I frequently travel to Lawrence to visit KU, and after staying at many other hotels in the area, this is by far the best choice. The price is always reasonable, the rooms are always clean and quiet, and the couple who run the hotel are fantastic. It is a short drive from campus and I have...

Great value! Rooms are nice and clean. New paint and carpet. Friendly staff. I will definitely stay here again! The mini fridge and microwave look new also. Rooms are pretty small. I think the poolside rooms don't hear the traffic as much.

Yes, it's an older hotel, but very clean and with a professional staff. Great mattresses and big fluffy pillows. If it can be polished, it shines....no dust on the lamp shades....every surface was clean. Rooms have coffee pot, shampoo, micro, refrig, iron/ironing board, safe and hair dryer. Continental breakfast was suitable and gets your day started. Very clean eating area....

The Econo Lodge in Lawrence KS is a little hidden gem. The premises are wonderfully landscaped, the rooms are clean, the pool is lovely and the staff go out of their way to ensure the stay is delightful. I would heartily recommend a stay at the Econo Lodge and will probably do so again.
