Much better than they used to? Almost half the lanes are not running. It’s better looking, but from a bowling point, nothing has changed. The people are ok, but the people who own it still don’t look like they care. It’s a pool hall and always will be

Dothan Lanes looks and operates a whole lot better than 20 years ago. They have been known for a bad reputation in the past but have recently been working hard to redeem themselves! You should totally give them a try. They have an extremely dedicated party planner as well, who is lovely and very sweet. You can tell she really loves what she does! I would give them a second chance for sure!

As noted earlier the new colors were up on the walls… Now it’s my pleasure to say that the new carpet is rolling out now! If you haven’t looked at Dothan Lanes lately, it’s definitely time to look again!

Give Dothan a try! They are constantly making upgrades – Ready to hear any suggestions – ready to work with any group setting up a special league or special parties – Reach out to the new GM Ron Cook he is very open and very receptive and looking to create a bowling center for all to share in the fun!

We just moved here to Dothan and I was looking for a place for us to bowl. All I can say is after reading these comments, I know where we won’t be going.

Reading through the comments, the history is true. But things have gotten better, and they will continue to get better with time and more revenue to make more improvements. The bathrooms are new, the lanes are synthetic, the machines work much better than they did, the manager Bill has bowling knowledge and is very nice, and they have started new leagues. If it has been a while since you’ve been there, I would try it again. I enjoyed our “revisit” there, and I will be back.

Dothan Lanes has been improving for the last year it has a long way to go, but is steadly showing improvements. The customer service is usually very good. The machines are running better especially lanes 1-12. With a few more improvements in the facility it will be the nicest center in town.

ok, so me and my friend got banned from there for walking up the road. does that show you how bad dothan lanes is? please, if you want to go somewhere fun; do NOT ever go there. The lady manager there is very, very rude and disrespectful, and a female dog if you catch my drift there. and some people there are very rude i believe one of the guy’s name’s was ‘nascar’. he is also another reason i will never go back there. please, for your sake do not ever go there. thankyou very much!

I don’t know of any other bowling alley as bad as this one. Everytime the pins went to set up three or more would fall down. After telling the manager (Norma) she just moved us to a different lane that would not return the balls. After complaining once more she moved us to yet another lane that the ball return damaged my $250 ball! After pointing that out to her she said we would have to get it repaired elsewhere because the pro shop isn’t even open there anymore. When I asked if I brought the reciept up here to get reimbursed for it she said it was against company policy to give refunds or reimbursments! Needless to say I can not put on here what I told her and where I told her she can go!

We went into dothan lanes this evening and spent nearly $100 and while one of their employees was very nice the others were completely rude. We were told that we would be able to finish our game in which we had five frames left in and they told us to leave before the game was up. We were also told that we were being smarta**es and childish about accidentally hitting the sweeper during a bowl. And they threated to call the cops because we hit the sweeper. I would not suggest for anyone to visit dothan lanes or give them any business.

Several years ago during tournament had to go to bathroom – water was about two inches deep on floor. Went and told employment of lanes about water and he said take off your shoes. I can’t write what I told him.
