We needed a place to stop for the night while driving from Florida to Chicago. Easy access from Interstate 65. Room rate was cheap 70 dollars. Decent lobby but old and tired looking rooms. For a place to lay your head for the night and the price it was okay. But the room had an old funky smell to it... More

Greeted with a smile at the front desk. The next morning at breakfast was asked if everything was ok. The food was good and tables clean. Offered eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy along with the usual. They also have a small microwave in the breakfast area if need to warm something. The room sink was located outside of bathroom in...

We arrived at the Clarion around 11.30pm, after a long drive it was nice to be greeted by friendly staff. We had checked rates for other near by hotels and this was the best at $55USD + taxes $62. Another bonus is that is is a non smoking hotel. Some in the area are smoking and you can tell as... More

We have booked with Clarion Inn, Bowling Green,KY several times now. Always warm friendly service and clean spacious rooms. The complementary breakfast is outstanding. Staff always goes above and beyond on the little thing that count most.

After booking a last minute stop at this property (on a trip to Florida), we found this hotel to be very well maintained and comfortable. The room was large, clean, and the beds were very comfortable. The carpet and furniture was in very good condition and the overall property was in very nice condition. The hotel staff was very pleasant,... More

We approached the 60 dollar a night 2.5 star hotel with a little trepidation but we're blown away at the value. Clean rooms and common areas top to bottom. Very nice staff at the front desk, even allowed us to check in 3+ hours early. Do not overlook this hotel. Overall- couldn't be happier with the hotel for the price.... More

We were not the least bit impressed with this hotel. The hallways are narrow and the rooms are tiny . The general decor was drabby and uninviting. I had originally booked this hotel for two nights after less than an hour we chose to stay elsewhere. I will not recommend this hotel to friends and family.

This hotel is located close to the expressway but the noise from traffic was minimal. The room was clean, modern and well maintained. It had ample room for a one night stay and an in-room refrigerator. The vanity space was quite small as was the breakfast area. Hotel desk clerk was pleasant and very accommodating. I would stay here again.

Visited during an apparently busy weekend and the room came with goose down pillows. Since im allergic to goose down, my husband went down to the front desk to see if they had a different type of pillows that we could get from them. He was treated poorly and rudely by the front desk clerk. The room wasn't too bad,... More
