“Falling into Disrepair and Cutting Corners on Cleaning”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I stayed at Microtel because I was on a budget. About a decade or so ago I stayed at a Microtel in another part of the country and had a very good experience, which is one reason I chose to stay at the Bowling Green Microtel.

The front desk clerk was friendly and very efficient and had me checked in in under five minutes. That, and the convenient location were about the only positive observations I noted about this particular Microtel.

I was disappointed to discover that the building was in a state of some disrepair. The walls in my room were very dirty with multiple scuff marks, nicks and even a dirty footprint on the bathroom wall! The baseboard in the bathroom had separated from the wall and there was dirt and grime in the corners and under furniture. It appeared that only heavily-used surfaces were cleaned. Even those showed water marks where a dirty wet rag had been used. In addition, the heating/cooling unit had come unattached from the wall and looked as if it had been randomly placed there. Fortunately, it worked, but it took some maneuvering on my part in order to be able to see and access the temperature controls.

The bed linens and bathroom towels were clean, but the towels were hard and scratchy. My window curtains did not close completely so that I had to use my suitcase to hold them in place to prevent anyone looking into my first-floor room.

I would have rated the service of the two desk clerks as very good. However, I rated the service as 'poor' because the room was in such a sad state of repair.

Because of the dirt and grime I would NOT recommend this hotel for those traveling with toddlers or children who might be spending any time on the floor.

Room Tip: For privacy, do not choose a first-floor room. Ask for the cleanest room available.

Beds good. Price good. Room walls were very dirty. Continental breakfast practically non-existent. Coffee and cold cereal available only. I will avoid this motel on my future trips

On a recent trip to Florida we stayed at this motel on the way there and once again on the way back. While the rooms are small they are rather nice and its close to several places to eat. All of the rooms have a refrigerator and microwave and flat screen TV. On the way down the internet was very good (on the first floor) but on the way back it (the internet did not work very good as it was very slow to not working at all) but over looking the connection issue the rooms were clean and comfortable and the location was also good.

Room Tip: internet seemed to work better on the first floor not so good on the 3rd floor.

While our room was clean and the bed very comfortable we did not sleep well due to the paper thin walls. Could hear people talking in a normal voice in the next room till very late. The garbage pickup about 4:30a.m also woke us up. Breakfast was not good and I travel and stay in hotels a great deal. Only had coffee. Elevator door would not close fully which was a bit worrisome. Staff on desk was pleasant etc. Overall not impressed although my husband has stayed in others and been pleased.
