So I booked this hotel on line going off if pics and reviews. The hotels I normally stay at were all full. The room smelled old and musty, the Decor was so outdated. And the musty smell in the room? Did I say that. They try to cover it with a air freshener that looks like it had been in... More

Room was clean although bathroom dated and did not look as clean in tub area. Plenty of tv channels and tv worked fine. Had a list of channels on a sheet which should be a law. Bed was... More

Nice friendly staff & helpful with advice. Room was nice with exception that the TV kept on going off but it wasn't much of a problem for us as we had been travelling several miles and just wanted a quiet nights sleep. The breakfast was ok - continental and set us up for the day. The added touch which we... More

We stayed here about a year ago, was well pleased at that time and continue to be happy with the experience. The upstairs room that we had was clean and quiet. The owners are very pleasant, they even remembered us from last year, they go out of there way to make your stay as good as it can be. Continue... More

The owners live on site and work this property. They are very friendly and helpful. We stayed here parents weekend for University of Kansas. All hotels book up months in advance for this popular weekend. The Virginia Inn, much like all other hotels in Lawrence, requires a 2 night min stay, on major event weekends. The breakfast what's a bit... More

We love older motels and this is a great example. Perfect quiet, clean clean , lovely couple do a great job managing. Beautiful bedding ( see photo) fluffy duvet and lots of pillows . Breakfast with fresh bagels, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice and good coffee. Very reasonable price. We actually overslept the motel is SO quiet!

I chose this motel based on the ratings. Not that it was a horrible place, but I just don't understand how this place has a star rating above 4. The Virginia Motel is an old 1950 or 60's motel that admittedly The owners have put in an effort to update. They painted the walls, added some new tiling to the... More

We chose this motel for a two-night rest on the July 4th week-end and we were not disappointed. We happily discovered that most fireworks are prohibited in Lawrence! The check-in was efficient and friendly. The room was spacious, very clean and equiped with fridge, microwave and coffee machine: this was essential as there was no breakfast included in the price...

Traveling near Kansas City? Check out the Virginia Inn in Lawrence, KS! And pay the little extra to upgrade to the 'suite' (Room 145) with the hot tub! Run over to Biemers BBQ (just 5 minutes away) for some takeout, fill the hot tub, turn on the game, watch it on the big screen...Well worth it!!

I stayed here overnight while in town visit KU for a project. I just needed the basics, so I was attracted to the Virginia by the price and the proximity to the university. But it was a pleasant surprise that the VI is such a nice place. My room was clean with a good air conditioner and a big flat-screen... More
