Overnight stay

The hotel was run down. It had a noisy lift that was dirty. That was just some of it.

Bed Bug Infestation

Thanks to this dump I am now dealing with a Bed Bug infestation. I called the Health Department. The lobby is dingy and dark. There are crickets of the variety that look like roaches everywhere... if they're not alive, there are remnants everywhere. The room I stayed in was dusty and unkempt. There are loiterers and homeless folks walking about. The only covered parking is a lot that closes at 6pm. STAY AWAY!!!

Hotel Lawrence

The hotel is a dump. The manager on duty is very rude. And they say parking available, but it is not. I called in the afternoon and asked about parking, I was told it would be available upon my arrival. When I got here this evening, there were not spots. When I asked about additional parking, he could only direct me to a lot but knew nothing about the cost or rules. I would think if you are a downtown hotel you would know all parking options if you only have 16 spots available. Do not stay here.

Don't expect much!

First, the Hotel looks NOTHING like the picture posted on your website! The lobby is old and musty with worn and dirty furniture; one elevator that barely makes it from flor to floor and had to wait each morning at least 10-15 min for it to arrive. Bathroom very small and furniture stained and dirty. Bedding and Towels seemed to be clean. Carpet turned my barefeet black. Restaurant next door not good and very expensive for what they are serving; Close to downtown restaurants and generally good location is only good thing

Bad Experience

It might be a one time thing but the Hotel Lawrence for me was an awkward experience. I arrived late from long traveling and ended up having to switch rooms two times! first room wasn't cleaned properly and had yellow water and paint chips in the tub, second had crickets and smelled funny. My final room was ok but the free internet didn't work my entire stay. I was just a creepy experience and I spent as much time away from there as possible. -maybe it was just me.

Hotel should be shut until renovation is complete

Being converted to a La Quinta and renovation is underway. My perfectly civil review of the hotel is being blocked because it's supposedly profane. The hotel does not even deserve a single star at the current time. Almost want to ask for my money back.

One Night Stay

The hotel was okay to stay in for one night, especially since it's priced well for the downtown area. Not a place I would recommend to anyone with kids though. The building had a creepy haunted feeling because of it's age. Within walking distance to West End district and other good restaurant spots. Be careful of parking on the street - meter checkers are there as soon as your time expires. Hotel charges approx. $16 to valet and park overnight... it would have been a cheaper choice for me. Learned my lesson!

Unclean and badly in need of renovation

I checked in to find the outside of the toile bowl covered with dried vomit. Rooms badly in need of a renovation. Would make a great boutique hotel, but now is a dump! Staff was friendly and accommodating.
