No pool, no warning

When I booked the I was not for-warned the pool is out of order and the price was enough that there should have been adjusted, they never offered, I never asked, I was very disappointed. The employees were very friendly.

Good location

Room was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. The food at breakfast was just ok and a little pricey. Lunch at the hotel café was good and not a bad price. Location of the hotel was very good. Golf course was right next door and the hotel was close to the main road of Bowling Green making it easy to get to a lot of shopping.

Fastest check in ever

There were about 10 people in front of me to check in so I settled in for a wait, only there wasn't one. The staff moved quickly and efficiently between guests seeing to everyones needs. The room was very large and the bed was especially comfortable. Overall I enjoyed my short stay at this property.

Hideous Experience After Long Journey

I used ----- to book Holiday Inn in Bowling Green, KY. Bowling Green was approx. the midway point for us as we live near Cleveland, OH and had vacationed in Destin, FL. We split up our car travel into 2 days. When we arrived at the Bowling Green Holiday after 9 hours on the road we were given a smoking room though we had requested a non-smoking room. The stench of the room was unbearable as was the elevator which also smelled of stale smoke. We were told non-smoking rooms were not avail. We found another room and we're not refunded as our non-smoking room preference wasn't guaranteed.

New year rendezvous

It was a comfortable, clean updated room. Would definitely stay there again. Restaurant staff was great. They seriously need to replace lobby chairs though. Ugh!

Close to downtown

Although the hotel's rooms and bath areas are a bit tired, this Holiday Inn has a great location and very friendly staff.

Quiet, Clean, Worth the Price.

I would give this a 4 star in relation to the other hotels in the area as it's the best choice, but in comparison to the hotels I like to stay at this is a 3 star in my mind. The whole lobby smelled like an indoor pool..that chlorine smell. Shower could use some updating, but the room was clean. "Fresh fruit" bowl I ordered for breakfast had canned pineapples and the melons were out of season. Overall it's a good hotel, clean and friendly staff, great location - but a 4 star rating from me has to have a little more luxury.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Rafferty's has great food at great prices, good selection (salads, chicken, burgers, something for everyone). I didn't see many online reviews for it ahead of time but was recommended by the locals, who also recommended Griff's Deli however I didn't get a chance to try it out. I had a BBQ chicken salad from Montana's Grille which I went to based on online reviews but I wasn't impressed......I waited 25 minutes for it and I thought that was because they were grilling my chicken fresh, but then it was served cold so it's either slow service or end-of-the-night leftovers. The atmosphere is nice and I'm sure their other food is good (it smelled good in the restaurant anyways).
