My buddy and I came to Covington on a family errand and chose the Holiday Inn Express because, of the the three or four motels available, the Holiday Inn Express had the best reviews.
The fact the Holiday Inn Express has the best reviews of any motel in Covington is lamentably amazing.
The best things about the motel were its location and its service. Just off I-64 the motel is easy to find and reach. We also found the service helpful. Paula at the front desk provided directions we needed as well as some replacement toiletries for some which we forgot.
But with that said, our room was entirely shabby. The furniture sagged, had numerous scrapes and dents and looked like it might have belonged in a garage sale. The telephone in the room did not work because there was apparently nothing behind the wall plate into which to plug the phone cord. One of the room's lights did not work and the room inexplicably had two large television sets, one of which was not plugged in and apparently did not work, though it did take up space.
At more than $112 per night including tax, the Holiday Inn Express felt overpriced. In fact, the place felt a bit like it had been condemned and awaited only the wrecking ball to make the impression reality. If this is the best hotel in Covington, visitors may still have to stay here, but most would be well advised to push on for the next town.
