My daughter and I stayed two nights over spring break. Loved the pool, hottub, and the jacuzzi tub in our room. Room was clean and staff was awesome! The fitness room was a bit of a letdown, but better than nothing!

This was our first stay at this Best Western. Unknown to us (we don't follow sports) this was a game weekend for KU. However our stay was very pleasant. The hotel was booked for the weekend, but we weren't inconvenienced at any time. The stay was very pleasant and the staff wanted to make sure we were enjoying our stay....

The Best Western Lawrence is a clean, comfortable and centrally located facility. Close to restaurants and the KU campus, the staff go out of their way to ensure you will have a quality experience. I can't thank you enough for a wonderful stay!

I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room! Decent breakfast! I went for a soak in the hot tub and there was hair in the hot tub. Ugh! I appreciated that the receptionist allowed an extra hour for check out time without any additional costs! Other than the disgusting hot tub, I was pleased!

This property is located at a busy corner, so traffic noise is a little heavy from time to time, but otherwise, you would be pleased with this place. The room was clean, the front desk and housekeeping staff a joy to work with, and the breakfast smelled awesome! I doubt you would be disappointed should you choose to stay here.

We are here for the preview day at KU. Drove from Denver Co. My son brought a friend with him. So it's just me, my son and his friend. So lucky to find this place! I have my own private room, with TV and they have their own room with 2 beds and a tv. It's like a 2 bedroom...

The staff are friendly and kind, the hotel is clean if a bit worn. I've stayed there three times in the past six months and every time the Internet has dropped service repeatedly. Although staff claimed they were. Getting it fixed on my second visit, it was just as bad the last time I was there. What gives? Surely reliable...

In town for a family event and had stayed at this location before. We would certainly recommend it for value, location and quality of experience. It's easy to get to campus and easy to get to downtown. The rooms were large, clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was generous and more than you usually expect. The staff was attentive and...

The hotel staff was very friendly. The pool was nice. The breakfast was good. It is located in a good spot. We liked that Chili's is in the parking lot of the hotel. It is located near the KU campus which was very convenient.

I travel a lot, and I don't often remember to leave a review. This Best Western sets an example of how a business should be run. Friendly and courteous staff coupled with a clean room with all the amenities requested. A very good complimentary breakfast was a bonus. Will return.

Thank Sandra B
