“What a gem!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This motel will really surprise you--especially for the price. It's about a mile off the interstate. We were on the road for almost 3 weeks and this was our best room. They have everything: flowers all around, washer/dryer, Wi-Fi, breakfast, good mattress, thick towels, good sheets, nice bed covers, ironing board, flat screen TV and professional décor. Need I say more? Oh, yes. The desk staff was very nice. If you don't stay here, you're missing out.

This is our 2nd stay and it's still such a great value. Very clean. No odors. Fast wifi. Quiet. Comfortable bed with nice sheets and lots of pillows. Frig. Microwave. Good size tv. Desk and chair. Table and chair. Ironing board and iron. Location is set back from the street. Can't ask for more at this price! The proprietors take great pride in this place and I can see why. Next time through Lawrence, we will stay here yet again.

Room was clean, quiet, and well-furnished. Included fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and a nice, wall-mounted TV with a full line-up of cable channels, including HBO and Cinemax. Wireless internet was very spotty, requiring frequent re-verification. Bed was way too soft for my taste. Breakfast was sparse: just some bread, bagels, donuts, pastries, fruit, and yogurt. Coffee was very weak. For the price ($60), I'd definitely stay again and just go out for breakfast.

Fun place to stay the night. Its like the 1950s hospitality. Large clean room, impeccable bathroom, TV was almost too large. Not fancy but a very comfortable place to spend the night. Online res system works perfectly. Comfortable firm bed and spotless linens. This must be the best deal of the year.

Go to Greenfields Bakery for breakfast - one of the best bakeries i have ever seen. Server full breakfast and pastries.

Room Tip: Go to Greenfields for Breakfast. Take the road alongside the hotel to 9th. East on 9th until to se...

I stayed at the Virginia Inn on a Sunday night on my way to Abilene. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed the flowers and fountain at the front side of the building, always a good sign. Then there was a warm welcome from "Sonny" the proprietor. My room was large, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. For dinner, Sonny suggested that I drive a short distance to Massachusetts Ave, or "Mass," as it is known to the community, where there are numerous restaurants. The street was very busy with people of all ages. Since Lawrence is the location for the University of Kansas, many of the crowd were likely students. As I was traveling alone, and the recommended restaurant, a steakhouse, had people waiting for a table, I elected to retreat to an Applebee's, located about a mile west of the Virginia Inn, where I enjoyed a meal at the bar. When I made my reservation with Sonny for a Sunday night, he mentioned that Sunday's had a special rate.....$55 plus tax. It's an exceptional value.

My first stay in a motel and it was quite positive. Very nice room with jacuzzi. While the place was full, I had not disturbance from other patrons. Centrally located with easy access to stores and the downtown area. I would definitely stay here again.

We needed an inexpensive, yet clean place to lay our head for one night after a wedding and we found it. It was very easy to reserve the room and it was very easy to find. Do not be fooled by the exterior...it's old and not very pretty. Our room was perfect for my family of 4, 2 adults, and 2 kids. It was roomy and clean. It had a mini refrigerator and the A/C worked great! There was a big flat screen TV with lots of channels. The shower pressure was great. The decor was dated but it was clean and well kept. The front office staff was very pleasant. They offered free wifi in the rooms and free breakfast in the front office. We did not have breakfast but we did see it and there wasn't much but it was something. I would definitely stay here again for short trips.
