Holiday Inn Express Bowling Green

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were slightly concerned about our choice to stay here because of the previous reviews. However it was late in the evening and we were tired of driving. Turns out... all was good! Room was clean, bed was comfortable... served its purpose. We would stay here again 😊

We stayed for a quick overnight stay. We booked their Deluxe King and turns out it was a suite with a separate bedroom. It was quite a surprise when we walked in. The living room was very large and there was a little kitchenette. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was standard HIE. We just felt this hotel was really showing its age. I don't want to say it was dirty, it just felt run down. It could really use a refresh.

It was a nice place but I have stayed at better Holiday Inn express's. The room was halfway clean. The bathroom looked like it had been upgraded but the rest needed some help. The carpet really needed a good shampooing. If you walked across the carpet with white socks they were dirty by the time to got done. The bed was comfortable. This is one that I would not recommend to a friend. We had 2 King rooms and both were the same. not really worth what the charged. The rooms smelled musty. The bathroom fans are super noisy. Both rooms fans were the same.

HI Express is substantially more expensive than budget hotels, like Red Roof Inn. I use HI hotels so I know I'll have a clean room and no problems, or any problem will be addressed in a professional manner. This hotel was convenient to the interstate and clean. The WiFi, however, did not work. The front desk person had me call the hotels tech person. As you can imagine, this was not what I was hoping for after a long day. The manager was out of the office the next morning, but I was able to contact him and assures me he addressed the issue and did right by me. I would stay at this hotel again, but I hope the WiFi issue is solved.

Fine stay for overnight travel, great breakfast area. Hotel appeared newer and clean. Room had slight smell of past guest smoking in it was late I did not request a different room, but would be nice if hotels kept these rooms out of the main pool so non smokers with children didn't have to smell that.

The Holiday Inn Express in Bowling Green is perfectly located near the interstate, restaurants, and other area attractions. What separates this hotel from others is the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms. As a frequent traveler, I always complete a thorough inspection of each room prior to unpacking. I would consider room 316 one of the cleanest rooms I have seen. Thank you, Tesa and others for a wonderful stay.

Stayed for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable, the front desk staff was pleasant and attentive. The ladies handling breakfast were awesome! Janine is the absolute best......she was knowledgeable about the local area and knew what we needed before we did! I highly recommend this hotel!!!

Excellent accommodation, great room, great breakfast buffet. Very friendly and accommodating Front Desk staff. Looks new or very recently renovated, everything looks crisp and clean. No hesitation to recommend this hotel.

The HIE was our host for the final night of a 5 day motor coach tour in central and northern Kentucky. Our reservations were made well in advance and the staff was prepared for us when we arrived. Our rooms had been pre-assigned and we were handed our keys as we exited our motor coach. It took quite a while to process 45 travelers and their luggage through the property's lone elevator, but that slight delay was totally expected and understandable. The desk staff was cordial and welcoming. The rooms were well furnished with comfortable beds, fridges, microwaves, and lots of electrical outlets for charging our many electronic devices. The rooms were rather small, with the dressing area located outside the bathroom in the entry foyer of the room. The bathroom was small and the exhaust fan was effective, but noisy. The breakfast area was very nice and included a 24 hour coffee station which was enjoyed by all. The morning breakfast was very good (especially the one minute pancakes and the cinnamon rolls) and the "breakfast hostess" was a "real star" on the staff. She was friendly and accommodating and just plain "fun to be around". Overall, this was a good one night visit, and I would recommend the HIE.

We stayed here for three nights during the Hot Rod Reunion event. The kids couldn't use the pool, we were told conflicting stories by the employee's. One said the chemicals were off, another said their city permit was expired, this was disappointing, and the guest should have been told when making reservations. The Wi-Fi in our room kicked off and on, which made things difficult. The rooms were clean, bed linens were very wrinkled, which I've never experienced that before. Employee's were friendly, but had conflicting stories regarding things.
