Great location, needs a little updating....

  • 4 of 5

Lawrence is a great town and this place is in the heart of it. Owner was great about everything. Key there, place ready for me. All that is really needed is a bathroom update and some new carpet. Otherwise, it is a great place to spend the weekend in Lawrence. It is literally in the perfect place down town.

Misleading; Dirty;

  • 1 of 5

The location was great. There was a lot of noise on the street from 9 pm to 2 am but we could live with that. What we were highly disappointed in was the pictures are amazing and you get here and it’s not the same. There is no couch or table. The carpet and floors are filthy, as is the entire loft. Trash was still in the trash can from the person before us. This is a great place that has been neglected.

It was a convenient location, although parking can be an issue depending on time of day.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, pleasant place. Extremely convenient for downtown dining and bar scene. Price is competitive with the Eldridge Hotel, but additional privacy of this place is a plus.

Great location, great disappointment

  • 1 of 5

This loft has a great location. We didn't expect fancy, but we did expect this loft to be clean. The bathroom was aged and there was dirt on some of the bed linens. Fortunately for us, a room opened up at the Eldridge. Unfortunately, that meant we had to pay twice - Brian

Property grossly misrepresented!

  • 2 of 5

This loft is advertised as 2 bedroom & living room. In fact there was one bedroom with a queen bed, plus a small living room. The living room had a couch (not a fold-out). When I called the property owner, he emailed back, saying the 2nd bed was an air mattress, which was in the closet! Speaking of the (only) closet, it was so full of linens and pillows that there was almost no space for hanging any clothes. The loft had a small kitchen which was adequate. The space overall was pretty clean. There were towels in the washing machine when we arrived. The best thing about this loft is its very convenient and central location in downtown Lawrence. It is too expensive for what you get, and should be advertised as a one bedroom space. It is far from adequate for 4 people.

Owner's Response: The details/notes of the second bedroom address how the living room has a door and how the room can be used as a second bedroom. I've added a couple more details to the notes to further convey this information. The loft is in a great location and it is setup to accommodate 2 but can accommodate 4. If anyone has any questions or concerns about how this space sleeps 4, please don't hesitate to ask me. My responses are quick! Thanks for the feedback.
