Verified Reviews of Hotel Lawrence

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Problems."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
My experience at Hotel Lawrence convinced me to never stay there again. The first night the toilet ran and there was no remote control for the TV. After reporting this the next morning, the remote was in the room, but the leaking toilet was not repaired. That night the only operating elevator broke. All residents had to climb stairs, and my room was located on the ninth floor. This situation remained until that afternoon.

"Interesting"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Hotel Lawrence is almost ninety years old. There have been updates. Showers are very nice and beds are very comfortable. Best hotel bed I ever sleep in. Carpeting and curtains I think are original, very musty, need replacement. Free breakfast very nice and hot. Make our own waffle shaped like Texas, loved it. Great location to Sixth Floor Museum and historic downtown.

"Small"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It is a neat hotel from 1925. It does need painting and the curtains were nasty looking. The rooms are extremely small. Two queen beds in one room is way too much. Very claustrophobic!

"Worst hotel I have ever stayed in!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The following reasons: 1 ) no room service 2) the rooms smelled like mold 3) there was no comforter on the bed and they gave us one that was like what you would get at a hospital not a hotel 4) one elevator was broken and the other one was way too slow for a 10 story hotel 5) rooms were out-dated 6) there was no parking; had to pay for public parking 7) the people that worked there were very untrained to do the job 8) the counter people would not answer the phone for complaints 9) people partying in hall ways etc. 10) trash everywhere 11) worst hotel stay ever.
