This is the largest Holiday Inn I have stayed in. Our room was very pleasant - spacious and clean. The air conditioning is controlled by a wall thermostat so it is quiet and efficient. Our group had a 'taste of Kentucky' banquet that was excellent. The staff were friendly and very responsive. We had a slow draining sink that was... More

Check in was easy. The atrium, open to the top floor (7th) was stunning and has a small waterfall/fountain. Yes, the hotel is older, but recently renovated, so very tasteful. Our seventh floor room had lovely views, and with no one above us to stomp around. Since rooms surround an atrium, you can pick up noise from activity below. We... More

I found this hotel to be very clean. The rooms were very nice. The bed was so comfortable. The lobby area was very unique and beautiful with greenery and a little water pond that looked like an indoor garden.

Nice room, only wish it came with a mini fridge! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Had breakfast both mornings we were there and we had no complaints whatsoever. Not far from restaurants, shopping, or the many other things to do in Bowling Green, and a quick drive to Mammoth Cave National Park where we sent most of our... More

We booked 2 nights with the Beech bend package with a king bed and sofa bed. That included 4 park tickets and breakfast for myself and husband and kids eat free. The room was huge and clean. Beds were a little hard for my taste but I have a memory foam at home. My husband and daughter slept just fine... More

My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend in Bowling Green and chose the Holiday Inn for the price. The receptacles are old and really need to be replaced. Had trouble getting my phone charger to stay plugged into the wall. Other than that, we have no complaints. It was very quiet for the 4th of July weekend even with... More

Went to the University Plaza for a business trip. When my company said we were meeting in Bowling Green and then at a Holiday Inn, I was shocked! Normally we are at Marriott or Hilton in a much larger city. Driving up, the property did not look like what I pictured Holiday Inn to look like. I had not been... More

Stayed here for a business meeting held in Bowling Green (not at this facility). Rooms were clean and comfortable. Didn't eat on site but the bar was nice. Location is close to various restaurants and stores so it was convenient. Nice stay. Enjoyed the visit.

This was a good, moderately priced hotel. The staff was very friendly. The hotel rooms were somewhat updated, but slightly outdated. It was still a good, clean hotel for the price. Breakfast was not included, but could be purchased for $10/p. Fridge and microwave in room.
