“Beautiful, downtown Covington”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Located on Main Street, this should be a good location. But the town is dead. Two cars on Main Street constitutes rush hour. The motel itself is recently renovated and the rooms are neat and clean, and the bed is good. Usual amenities plus a small refrigerator. The rooms are small, but that's no big deal. The corridors and parking lot looked like they haven't been swept in weeks; cigarettte butts everywhere. Staff is pleasant and they try to be helpful. Only real problem was the breakfast. Usual stuff, plus bacon and eggs. Eggs were the frozen, microwaved patties. Cold and swimming in some kind of oil. Inedible. Bacon was uniform, crisp and tasteless. Reconstituted bacon? Definitely not pet friendly, but smoking rooms are available for you sinners (grin).

This will sound harshe, but let's not mince words. There's nothing going on in Covington, and what is going on is going on closer to the interstate. The downtown is drying up, and looks it, but this hotel is a very pleasant surprise. It's in better shape than many rural Virginia Quality Inns, recently updated, with a lot less of the typical dank room smell that's usual for these old, converted motels. The staff was professional and knowledgable, and the room was clean and comfortable, though small. The price was right, and the nearby mountains are gorgeous, so this would make a decent base camp for exploring the area.

This Quality Inn was recently remodeled with modern furniture, new beds, etc. This is the only hotel in downtown Covington and is located very close to the MeadWestvaco paper mill. I think a lot of contractors that work at the mill must stay here as the carpets and linens in my room were stained and there were boot scuff marks on the walls and doors. There were a lot of work trucks in the parking lot the night I was there.

The room was comfortable however when I checked in I had to wipe down several surfaces as there were remnants of spills, dust, and dirt on the furniture. Housekeeping obviously leaves a lot to be desired. The bed was in good shape and I slept well. The HVAC unit was quiet and worked well.

I usually say something to management if a room isn't reasonably clean but I was in a rush to leave the next morning so I can't comment on a response from management.

I would consider staying here again.

This is a good value and decent place. The room furnishings were new, the bed comfortable, the bathroom updated. The room was pretty small, but that was not an issue for us. The breakfast was very good - comparable to what we get at the Hampton Inns where we usually stay.

Stayed here wth two friends. Visited Lewisburg and White Sulphur Springs and this is the closest we could get to those because of WV state fair. As others have said, the room was recently redecorated - mod 70's type decor - comfortable beds - and OK continental breakfast. Had flat screen tv. Covington itself does not have much to offer or if it did we did not see it. Only negative about hotel itself was that the lights were very dim in room - I know that is to keep down energy costs but would have preferred a little brighter I thought the rate was a little high - $139 - but I am assuming rates were higher because of the fair. Would recommend

I checked Tripadvisor before booking and Covington is quite small so not much choice and the reviews are all a bit old but this looked like the best choice and on reflection we made the right choice. The reception is quite modern in decor with a breakfast room off it. The receptionist was very welcoming and switched us to a king size bed which we prefer. Although is was after 5pm she went and double checked the room was all ready for us. The doors on the lower floor open on to the parking lot and we were able to park outside our door, however, there were several oversize trucks and some other bad parking which made the oddly shaped car park a tight squeeze. There is an additional parking lot across the road.
The room itself was perfectly clean, fresh white bedding (comfy comforter on top), with a flat screen tv. The room also has an iron/board hidden away and a small desk with 2 chairs. The bathroom is all a kind of marble, and is a good size.
Breakfast was included and was from 6-10 during the week. There was tea/coffee/juice/cereal/toast/bagels/pastries/fruit and bacon/egg. More than adequate. There was also an ice machine and drinks vending machine.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to stay again or to recommend as what it is - good value, clean, basic accommodation.
There isn't that much in the local area, although we did find an Applebees, several pizza delivery companies, Walmart, cvs etc. We chose Covington as we wanted to visit the Humpback (covered) Bridge, which is apx 3 miles away, Moomaw lake is also not far.

This hotel was more than I expected by far. The rooms were so nice and clean. they seemed to be modern and up to day. Granit tops, fridge, and the colors were beautiful. The staff were nice. The breakfast was more than normal, including eggs, toast, bacon, bagels, yogart, and so much more. Bathrooms were a little small but the hotel is worth every penny, which wasnt many. I would recommend anyone to stay there and we would again anytime.
