I had to travel to Bowling Green on business two weeks in a row, so I took the opportunity to compare two hotels that are rated as above average on this site. The Holiday Inn appears to be a somewhat older property, but one that has invested in its facility and kept it up to date. My room was clean,... More

Recently stayed here and have to say it was a great visit! Well lit and safe parking lot, extremely fast, professional and informative check in and out, the young man (Thomas) at the front desk is the most professional employee I have met at any of the locations! At first My co-worker and I debated canceling because we noticed a... More

My family and I stayed here recently on our way to the nearby park. When we got to the door, I noticed that it read for everyone to make sure they rev up their engines at 10pm so all of Bowling Green could hear them! Really? I have small children with me. I'm pretty sure they would have been asleep... More

We stayed here for 4 days during Camarofest 6, rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, staff is very helpful. Whenever we needed anything, the staff didn't hesitate to either direct us or get it for us. They nicely took care of a lot of Camaro owners & our cars. If you are in Bowling Green, this is the place to... More

We only stayed here overnight to reach our destination the following day, but I would definitely stay here again. The rooms are very spacious as well as the bathroom area. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly. Our bed was big and comfortable, just what we needed. Check in was fast and smooth.

Arrived at 5:00 A.M., looking for a room, CJ went far and above to help us. He didn't have any, but he called at least ten other hotels looking for us. He told me if my husband and I found rest for a few hours on their couches he would have us a room around 10:00. We checked in there... More

Stayed here with daughter while visiting Bowling Green. This hotel seems to be the largest hotel in the city with convention center attached. There were a couple of conventions in town on the night we stayed but the hotel didn't seem that busy. Room was large with view of nearby golf course. Hotel seems a little dated and could use...

If you have any dust allergies, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. As soon as we walked in I could smell dust. After looking around I could see it on most surfaces. Inside the vents, and lights. There was hair on surfaces in the bathroom. I always carry Clorox wipes and wipe everything down before using a bathroom in a hotel.... More

This is my second time staying here as I'm passing through on business. It's a great hotel. Staff is plenty friendly, beautiful lobby, and on site restaurant and coffee bar. I don't know that I'd rate it 3 stars. Feels more like 2.5 but it's still very nice and part of that might be due to the renovations that have... More

Stayed there twice - traveling long distance with dogs and the hotel was very accommodating. Clean room, area for dogs outside and the staff were very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to travelers with dogs!
