We checked in and the girl at the desk was so sweet! We got a double bed room, and it was very nice. Super clean and comfy. The bathroom was also very clean and stocked nicely with shampoos and such. The breakfast was delicious. I would absolutely recommend staying here! The quality for the price you pay is great.

We stayed here 2 nights in February 2013. Slim-pickin's in this neck of the woods, but we were pleasantly surprised with our choice. The staff was extremely friendly, the hotel was quiet (keep in mind it's ON an interstate), the breakfast selection was great! Usual fast-foods near by, as well as a few chain restaurants. Hotel was clean, with great... More

The reviews of this hotel seem a little harsh to me. We found the propety to be clean and relatively trouble free. The running toilets and through the wall HVAC were irritants but expected at this price point. The property has been renovated recently and appears fresh inside and out. The food quality was much better than any of the... More

Checked in tonight and had to go to three different rooms before one was acceptable. By acceptable meant cleaned and free of odors. Way overpriced for the quality. The heaters are old and also there is nothing else in this area to attract.

This room was clean and the breakfast was good but for the cost I expected something a little more above average. The staff was friendly and everything was in order in the room. But the bed sheet was too small. The linens, pillows and coverlets were nothing special even though the price was the same as an upscale hotel. Will... More

Really, this rates somewhere between poor and average. First, we booked through expedia so I figured no problem. Wrong, first the desk person had the wrong credit card then said I had requested a special room on the 4 th floor which I did not. Finally, after some aggravation after a very long exhausting journey, we got the room. We... More

If you need to stay in Covington, do yourself a favor and drive to Lewisburg, WV (30 minutes West) or Lexington, VA (45 minutes East). HIE Covington is known for its horrible customer service and price gouging (My last stay was $170.00). The staff are unfriendly and trained to squeeze every last penny out of you.

Upon leaving, I realized we had not yet left a tip for the cleaning staff. I left a tip for two different rooms, which meant leaving a note to indicate which rooms.
