A family group of 2 couples enjoyed a stay at this nice hotel. We booked two rooms and were warmly greeted upon our arrival. We slept here 4 nights and visited and took meals with family nearby. Relative proximity to family in Kentucky and the Nashville Airport made this hotel a

This is a surprisingly fresh, bright and spacious Holiday Inn and should be a fine choice even for demanding travelers like me.

However, upon checkin, I was informed that I was the “member of the day” and would be staying in the Presidential Suite. It was quite a treat and th

Came down for the weekend from Massachusetts to visit a friend at a church. I requested a quiet room after finding out a big football game was going on that weekend. So they gave us a wonderful quiet area of the hotel, away from the hustle and bustle. Room was really nice. Bed wa

Just because you are attached to the convention center does not mean you have to double the price of rooms, but they did. I could have stayed one block over for less than half the price. Next time we will. I also don't like heights and I got put on the sixth floor. Glass elevator

Response from IHGService, Guest Relations Manager at Holiday Inn University Plaza - Bowling Green
Responded Oct 13, 2018
Hello jtr56, Thank you for leaving us your review and for making us a part of your visit here in Bowling Green. We are grateful that you've chosen the Holiday Inn. As always, we want nothing more but to ensure your experience turn as positive as possible. While I appreciate that you found our hotel nice, I'm sorry that on this visit, you felt shortchanged comparing this to the overall experience you had. I read that you felt uneasy with the room location, the glass-enclosed elevator, breakfast rates, and the placement of the television. Our rates are affected by the availability of rooms on a given day, current demand, and if there is a special event in the area. Also, we make sure it is priced competitively with other hotels. We respect our hotel's capability to price the rooms accordingly. I'm sorry that this stay didn't go as well as I've hoped it to be, jtr56. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be discussed amongst all concerned staff. I'd also make sure to give Sarah a tap on the back for going a great job. We are always on the lookout for ways to make your experience memorable. Reviews such as this goes a long way in identifying areas where we can improve. We may not have gotten off the right foot but I'm positive to make it better for your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Best regards, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService

Hi Debbie - We don't have any bed bugs in our hotel. Our staff is trained to check for bed bugs as part of our daily inspections. We have not had any reported bed bugs in quite some time now and is something that we work to prevent from occurring. Thank you for sending your question and I hope that we have clarified any concerns you may have. Best Regards ~ Brian, GM
