“Very Suitable and Economical”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

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. Good parking. Carpet could use an update. Would stay there again and would recommend to friends and family.

My job has me traveling in Missouri and Kansas. On evenings I need to be in Lawrence, I always stay here.

Sam the owner is very friendly and helps when I need copies of sales forms or faxes and never charges me like most the others do. Sam will go out of his way to make your stay comfortable.

Very nice pool with excellent landscaping. Wifi very reliable. Rooms while not a Hilton are clean and everything is in working order. Lets put it this way, you do not need to be afraid to lay down on the bed.

Excellent value, very clean. I will not stay anywhere else in Lawrence. This is not your average Econolodge.

Room Tip: Ask for poolside

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.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool would be great.

I have stayed here on two separate occasions. Once for the Color Run and another for the Glow Run. The staff was very helpful in helping us find the past way to get to the locations of both runs and even told us where the best place for parking would probably be which ended up being super helpful. Our rooms were clean, well stocked, cheaply priced and in a great location for anyone who is new to the area and want to hit the hot spots without the attractions being too close. We went during the fall so the pool wasn't up but other than that it was great! I'm actually doing the Color Run in September this year and have already booked another room here. I cant wait!

This was my second visit to this motel. I was a late night arrival but looked for this motel based off my good experience on my first visit. The front desk staff was extremely courteous at check-in and at check-out. This motel is located in a good location with lots of close restaurants and shopping, close enough to KU campus but far enough away to avoid traffic congestion. Room was clean and comfortable. I would recommend highly and will stay there every time I am in Lawrence

Nothing fancy here. Nice pool area!
Small rooms, with everything you need, including continental breakfast..
Groceries within walking distance.(1/4 mile).
Refrigerator /microwave in the room.
Stay at Virginia Inn,(no pool) a couple blocks away and save a few $$

This review only has to do with the carpet. It was extremely damp, and for some reason it bothered me a lot. Just wore sandals but if I forgot and walked with my socks the dampness would seep through.

Just another note - the hotels holds an additional 20$ until you've checked out of the room, in case of damages. There is a tiny notice taped to the check in counter, but it might be hard to miss. Don't be alarmed to see the charge on your bank account - it will be deposited back into your account within a few days. No problem there.
