We got there and no workingpool no phone no internet and the t.v. only had 5 working channels! The room was clean however the outside there was boarded up... More

We stopped here on our way to Florida. It was passed midnight and we just needed a place to lay our heads for the night. The room was clean and nicely decorated even though the outside screamed redecorate me. The service desk guy was very nice and informative. The phones in the room didn't work or have Wifi, but he...

I avoid rooms when travelling in our transport as we have had bad experiences. There is nothing wrong here at all. Clean, good location, laundry facilities, fridge and micro, large flat screen with many channels, USB and plugs between beds for electronics, beds comfy, blow dryer in room as well as small shampoo, soaps etc. No reason to complain at...

Had a 3 night stay at this hotel. I will say the staff was super nice. The free breakfast was better then most Econo Lodge properties. They did offer cold and hot items. Something you dont normally see at this brand. However, the room quality is really bad, rooms are very dated and the bathroom had mold and beds very... More

Dear Corey- I'm sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. I will make sure that I talk to my staff about their phone usage. We are going through renovations at this moment, so the beds should be changed in the process. Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. Sincerely, Christine Y Assistant Manager More

Although Econo Lodge in Bowling Green, KY is undergoing renovation, they are still open for business Our room was what I would expect for $69,but it was obviously not vacuumed.When I turned down the bed covers, there was no blanket--only a sheet and a very heavy bedspread. When we went to the office, they told us that's the way they... More

Stayed one nite and the room is dated and beds are small but clean. The outside lights did not work but other then that everything ok. They have a breakfast but we ate somewhere else not much there just coffee and muffins. The room has microwave and fridge. Not bad for the money..About 61.00 for one nite.

This motel is located directly beside the Red Roof Inn (currently rated #5 of 31 hotels in Bowling Green) and it is owned and operated by the same person as the Red Roof Inn. I tried to get a room at the Red Roof Inn, but they were full. The desk clerk referred me to the Econo Lodge (100 feet... More

I recently stayed at this Econo Lodge during the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum event. Not sure how I got such a good rate during a major event, but I did. I really like the fact that it is a single story motel with parking right in front of your room. Plus, the parking spaces were so wide... More

We booked our room as 1 of a block of rooms back in February 2014 as a place to stay during the Corvette Museum's 20th anniversary event from 8/27/2014 thru 8/30/2014. Unfortunately, all motels were booked and asking extremely high prices in Bowling Green so we could not change our lodging options! Although we were all told on the phone... More
