This was a great hotel for our weekend trip for a basketball tournament. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was clean and fresh. The rooms were comfortable and modernized. Breakfast was GREAT! Will definitely make a return to this hotel.

Reviewed 2 April 2017 via mobile

Wad worried about the previous reviews and my personal poor experience at a Holiday Inn Olathe two weeks prior. But, this hotel met all expectations. Easy access from highway and a good location in town. Check in was smooth with friendly staff. A minor housekeeping issue related to construction or maintenance was quickly resolved. The room was clean and modern....

Everything was smaller than most Holiday Inn's that we have stayed at in the past. Seemed very dated and cramped. Didn't really like the room size, not the cleanest. Won't be staying here again - hopefully.

Although we've visited Lawrence many times, this was our first stay at the Holiday Inn Express and we were very pleased. The hotel has a friendly and helpful front desk staff and the rooms are clean and well appointed. We were particularly pleased that they have one bedroom suites (completely separated bedroom), which we prefer. The suites have a microwave...

This Holiday Inn Express is concerned about you having a pleasant stay. The front desk is very courteous. Liz, the manager, is super nice. And Phyllis, at the Breakfast area, is why we keep coming back! She is absolutely fabulous! And our rooms are always super nice. The air conditioners and heaters work wonderfully! Plus there are plenty of outlets...

The blonde lady behind the check in counter when we rolled in the evening of April 15th was so helpful! The rooms were clean and spacious. The shower water wonderfully hot! Decent breakfast with options (cereal, oat, cinnamon buns, yogurt, sausage, gravy, eggs, etc.).
