Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Bowling Green

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Overpriced, but okay."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Loud. Neighbors continuously let door slam for hours into the evening/night. I went to check in. Grant it, it was 10 minutes early. I know hotels probably hate that when people come early. I had hurt my back and could barely walk and just wanted to lay down after traveling. The woman told me that I need to come back closer to check in time. I didn't say anything because I No I was early but how much closer to 3:00 can you get. Updated but rooms were small. Quite expensive for what I got.

Room was great, nicely decorated and very clean. Would definitely stay there again. The thing I didn't like was that I booked over the phone which cost me an additional $30.00. Not the least bit happy about this.
