Room 306 7/11-7/12. Open the door and the overwhelming smell of mold hits ya. We quickly found out why. The bathroom has mold ever place you'd expect it in a hotel room. In the calking around the tub, on then ceiling, in the grout. Other than that; the room and hotel are average. Not really updated and maintained. From one... More

It has an indoor pool, hot tub, small exercise room. Pretty clean. Relatively large rooms and Queen beds. We put three kids in one. Typical free breakfast. Friendly staff. Right off the expressway it was perfect for a quick overnight. No dogs except service.

I had to travel to Covington for business (something I don't really recommend as there is really nothing there) and I got a room at this Holiday Inn Express. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was! The rooms were very clean and large and the staff working on the 3 days that I was there were very polite... More

This hotel is one of the nicer ones in the area, however it is outdated, somewhat clean, and kind of run down. It definitely should be charging $149 per night! The breakfast was ok but the coffee was more like colored water, I did find that there wasn't any decent coffee in the whole town of Covington.

I thought the price was a bit high for a hotel in this area, but the accommodations were very good. We had a clean, comfortable room, nice TV, heat worked great, and it all came with a decent hot breakfast including scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravey, and the usual assortment of breads, pastries, cereal and fruit. The free internet was... More

I stay in 5-6 (or more) different Holiday Inn Express locations in the average year so I know what to expect. This location was on the low end of the scale. Nothing terrible but a little worn and tired. It was also the only time I have ever been charged more than my reservation rate. They fixed it when I... More

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Covington, VA just before Christmas, 2014 and found it to be clean and quiet with a nice hotel room, beds, bathroom. Breakfast was also a plus. We would stay here again, and have stayed previously. Recommend it.
