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

We were traveling late into the night and decided we were too tired to continue on. Started checking the area on my phone for hotels. I'm a bit of a snob about where I stay. I want to know it's clean first and foremost. We checked the big names not that clarion isn't, but my usual go to's. They were... More

My sister and I were visiting my son at WKU. We stayed 2 nights and were very pleased. We decided the bed was the most comfortable ever! The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The hot breakfast was tasty and the dining area clean and bright. Free USA Today newspapers! Well worth the price we got on Priceline. Staff friendly... More

When I arrived choicehotels.com had accidentally not sent through my reservation. The front desk person had to call the powers that be to insure my reservation, but instead of having me wait until done, he arranged my room, gave me a key and told to come down later at my convenience and give the credit card. Wow! Oh, and gave... More

I apologize for the confusion over the reservation. This was the first time choice reservation was not sent into our system. There was no reason for you to wait while we sorted out the problem, therefore I offered you to rest in your room. Hope to see you soon . More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Location was excellent, just off the interstate. Close to shopping, restaurants etc. Breakfast was included, and provided a good variety. We will definitely stay again.

I planned a last minute trip to Nashville. I consequently stayed in Bowling Green because Nashville motel/hotel rates, even on Hotwire and Priceline, seem to always be high as of late (at least for the decent hotels in desirable areas of town). A rollover effect is also usually felt in Bowling Green, but it is still cheaper. Staying further north... More

First the hotel was gouging on price since this was the 20th Anniversary of the National Corvette Museum. In all fairness so were all the other hotels, some much more than others. The Clarion Inn was one of the "better" gougers. The staff was good and the manager gave us treats at the end of the day. The morning breakfast... More
