We had a king suite. A separate living room with couch and chair, tv, dining table and two chairs, microwave, small refrigerator, counter with sink. Separate bedroom with another tv. Guest laundry on our floor. $128 per night plus tax. Staff seemed to be mostly college students and they were extremely pleasant and helpful in every way. Because of COVID, housekeeping only came daily if requested. We requested more towels and supplies during our stay from the front desk, and the front desk staff immediately filled our requests themselves.

I have done business with them for years and even bringing in out of town guest to stay here. Recently I sold my home and was in a transitional phase for a little over a week and stayed with them for one of my longest stays ever. Normally, I would spend a few days here or days over when I had events going on and so on. However, due to the circumstances this was a little different. However, this turned out to by far my best week stay in any Hotel ever and I continue to highly recommend this Hotel for both locals who need a night away or two and certainly out of town guest when they come to Bowling Green. This Hotel is one of the best in town because of its Management and Staff who go out of their way to always be helpful and to this day after 17 years plus of doing Business with them I can personally say nothing would change my opinion of them. In fact, I think they have just gotten better in the quality of the Management and Staffing over the years. A great place to stay!

Hotel was somewhat dated and pricey compared to others in the area. We got a corner executive suite for our family on 7th floor. Breakfast was expensive and typical hotel breakfast by order since covid. Went to bar but not paying $12 for a tiny drink. Room was clean and large enough but hotel just needs a facelift inside in general!
