The closest hotel to the university is also our favorite!

Here at Hotel Jules, we love suites. They typically feel cozier and more spacious than a hotel room, and the full kitchen is an amazing way to cut down food costs by cooking at the suite. All of these reasons and more is why this is the number one hotel on our list!

While Baymont by Wyndham Lawrence is certainly a budget hotel, it doesn’t mean it’s a basic hotel!

Guests love the fitness room, the indoor pool, and the super-fast wifi, and the free continental breakfast is served daily. Also, if you are traveling with a furry friend you’ll be happy to know that this is a pet-friendly hotel.

If you prefer a luxurious hotel that has a classy vibe to it, then you are going to love the Eldridge Hotel.

Set in a charming and older building, this hotel is classy and super clean. Guests rave about the on-site restaurant and on-site bar, but our favorite feature has to be the on-site salon and massage services. The hotel also has a business center and fast wifi, making this a popular choice for business travelers.



#5 – Best Western Plus West Lawrence

Best Western Plus West Lawrence

Located a few minutes further from the other hotels is the Best Western Plus West Lawrence.

While there are many great things about this hotel, we think that the spacious rooms, huge beds, comfy pillows, and quieter location makes this the best hotel in the area to get a good night’s rest. And just in case you are having a hard time sleeping, you can grab a quick drink at the on-site bar 😉
