Ok so as with any holiday inn express this place is low on frills. But when you just need a room for a night or two do you need them? Nice spacious room with good size bathroom. And nice touch to have keurig machine in the room and a small fridge. Everything felt clean and the working space and number...

If I had other Holiday Inn choices in Lawrence, this wouldn't be it. Worst stay yet at this hotel. Cable has been out for 13 hours now, and some moron has been getting ice about every 20 minutes since 9pm last night. Thanks HIE Lawrence for a sleepless week by the ice machine....

We stayed in a one bedroom suite which appeared to be recently remodeled. The room and property was very clean. The bed was super comfortable. We loved that the room had blackout roller blinds which kept the room dark for sleeping. The staff was pleasant and attentive. We will certainly return on our next visit to Lawrence!

Stopped here on the way home from a long road trip. Good location, close to restaurants, room was clean and spacious. We slept great, it was quiet and comfortable.

After staying the night before in a super disappointing stay in Holiday Inn Express in KCMO, I had high hopes for better nights here. Sadly, this was not the case. We checked in and realized that again, like the previous night we were booked RIGHT NEXT to the elevator- which meant noise and nuisance all night and morning long. Being...

Hotel is still in the process of remodeling, but the room I stayed in was amazing. Very modern, clean lines. All for the comfort of the guest. Love the electric outlets in the night stand.

They are refurbishing the hotel. The rooms are wonderful. They have updated them with so many nice features. An actual bench to put your luggage and hooks above it. Loved it.

We made our reservation several weeks in advance however when we arrived after driving 650 miles, we were told the inn was sold out due to remodeling delays.
