very clean or welcoming
All the better known hotels were booked and we had looked at some "lower" chain hotels in the area and found them to be not very clean or welcoming, so we found this and took a risk. We were SO very pleased and if we are ever in Bowling Green again this would be a place we would stay.The service was beyond wonderful and the newly decorated room was very clean and great for a quick overnight stay while passing through.
The Cardinal Motel was a good base for us as we were visiting from the UK and wanted to have a good look around the area. We were warmly greeted on our arrival. Also were told a bit about local eating drinking places. The room was a decent size and absolutely spotless. It was vacuumed every day and we had clean towels every day. Try Judy's Castle next door which is good food and very reasonable prices.
We recently attended an event in Bowling Green and was looking for a room. I chose this one because of the good reviews online. I highly recommend this hotel. It was very clean and nice. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. They even have free bottled water in the room. The bed was comfortable. The room was conveniently located.
Clean, good value
The wifi was great. Connected to it once and every time I came back it would instantly connect without having to log in. The signal was strong too. I streamed videos and Skyped with the fam. The cable was good too. The room was clean and the owners were very nice and helpful.
Room quite big and had fridge, microwave, flat screen tv. The bathroom had been remodeled--the motel in general is well kept. We did not find anything "outdated". It was one of the cleanest places we've ever stayed in!
Great Value, Close to Downtown
I must agree with other reviewers comments that this Motel deserves a higher rating than 2 stars. True, it isn't a "Chain" brand, but the motel was well maintained. I was surprised at the granite top lavatory sink and the fact it had a fridge, LED TV and microwave. The furnishings were solid. We had a king size bed as well as a sofa. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was quiet. There was a terrific "Mom & Pop" restaurant right next door (I recommend the Western Omelet).Overall, an inexpensive room close to downtown that surpassed my expectations!
I stayed here during the state band finals. all of the other hotels were booked up. so I took a chance on this hotel. the staff was very friendly and treated me with courtesy and respect. you can tell they have took time to make sure the outside looks up to date and modern. the room was cozy. the room was a great place to stay for a couple of nights.
Newly remodeled budget motel - Clean and quiet
Make no mistake, this is a budget motel. However, the price was half vs any other hotel and the property has recently been completely remodeled. Everything was in good repair, clean, and quiet. For the money, I would stay there again.
Cardinal motel was a great choice. The price was reasonable. The room was clean, quiet & comfortable, included, microwave & mini-fridge. The staff was friendly & helpful. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip.
