“Adequate, maybe barely”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

I get no pleasure in having to write unenthusiastic reviews, but this place really is no great shakes. The parking lot had some trash blowing around. The breakfast was so bad that I hardly ate anything, and that's usually my favorite meal of the day. The room was small, as was the parking lot. The inn has a deal with a department store catty-corner across the street to use their parking lot, but it was pretty full during they day except for far reaches. This is a fairly new motel located in a dying city with huge empty lots and unoccupied buildings everywhere. How on earth could they have bought so small a lot that there isn't room to park half the cars of guests? And, the room was far too expensive compared with what it should be.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, go to a different motel.

We stayed there for a BBQ contest 'cork & pork'. The parking lot was being resurfaced one section at a time, so parking was even more limited. All the outside trash cans were overflowing with beer cans and the 'patio' upstairs was trashed with empty beer cans and cigarette butts. The parking lot was filthy with trash and debris. The room it's self was ok, the beds were high but comfy. The bathroom was about the size of a postage stamp, with no exhaust fan. When I went to get ice I had to pass through were the maids had gathered to chain-smoke and gossip, I just about died from the smoke. The breakfast was mediocre and the doughnuts had been frozen then thawed for that morning, gross. The second night we were there the power went out due to storms in the area. The umbrellas in 'patio' area blew off and hit cars. The next day the staff was very understanding. Also they don't have a pool. To sum my stay up I would stay somewhere else if I ever came back.

Having stayed in Lewisburg and Lexington previously I was looking for somewhere else to stay in the area, so Covington it was. I'll come on to the hotel in a minute, but first a plea. People of Covington, what is the matter with you??!! You live in a beautiful part of the World, have a lovely Main St and downtown area, but you all seem dead - no downtown restaurants, not a single bar in town, nothing, dead dead dead. Come on, wake up and start enjoying your town, please.

The hotel was a good standard Quality Inn, but the ONLY restaurant is 2 miles away, anItalian pizza restaurant, and when you're on Main St that just ain't right. Other stops on our trip were Lexington, Asheville, Fontana and DC - and this was the worst value for money by such long way, $119, and definitely not worth anything near that.

Room was spacious but we switched the AC off as it was very noisy and couldn't be adjusted. Breakfast was very limited but OK. Stay at Sheridans in Lexington instead.

Room Tip: Don't think theres' much to choose between them.

You definitely need GPS or detailed instructions to find this business in downtown Covington, Virginia. I have been a Choice Rewards customer for about 7 years and adore this chain of motels (Comfort Inns, Quality Inns, Sleep Inns, etc.). But this one is NOT one of their better ones. Expensive (close to $100 on a weeknight, not during any special event week), and really cramped parking. Room was clean and bed was very good. Complimentary breakfast was adequate. Selection of tv channels was poor, only about 20 or so. Next time I might travel the extra 30 miles to Lewisburg, WV to stay at a different Choice motel, or even stay at a different motel in Covington.

Room Tip: I always ask for a room away from the lobby to have a quieter stay

I reviewed the local hotels in Covington before deciding on this Quality Inn. We were looking for a safe, comfortable hotel for a family occasion in a nearby town. This hotel looked to be marginally better than the alternatives. Plus I thought it would be quaint to be downtown.

First, I concur with the pretty much unanimous opinion that whatever is happening in Covington is not happening in the nearby downtown area. We stayed on a Saturday night and it was dead. DEAD in caps. We arrived at 600PM and I don't think there was anything open within walking distance. Consider one of the alternatives nearer I-64 if you are looking for the usual selection of nearby restaurants, big box stores, etc.

The facility is shoe-horned into a too-small plot, with a curiously out-of-place stone facia. The immediate impression of the facilty is overall clean, but worn. We found an old, empty can of Skoal behind the main door of the bedroom. Otherwise, the room was OK. Flat screen TV worked fine. So did the HVAC. Very nice and comfortable King size bed. Plenty of pillows! Clean bathroom.

The parking lot is a mess. And poorly lined for spaces! This was probably my biggest issue with the facility. The building is configured in a U-shape opening on the Main Street, with a covered entranceway/portico to the lobby on one of the interior wings. The driveway is also U-shaped, with parking spaces angled off both sides. The problem is the way people park two deap in the center, potentially blocking the flow of traffic. We have a mid-size SUV and it was difficult to make the turn and squeeze it around the circle. Best bet is to park across the street next to the Bank in the annex parking lot - poorly lit, but not crowded.

My advice is this - if you are passing through the region, plan to stay at either Lexington or Lewisburg. Both have a good selection of hotels, restaurants and shops immediately off I-64. If you need to stay in the Clifton Forge or Covington area, read the reviews and make your best decision based on priorities. My guess is your favorite guest rewards/loyalty program will make the decision for you.

Very basic aging facility with all exterior rooms. No restaurant on-site and nothing open nearby that we could find on Saturday evening. Oh yes, I forgot to mention the nearby paper plant. I am sure the locals would tell you it is the smell of money, but that conforting thought was of little help to my over-saturated olfactory senses on Sunday morning. Set your expectations accordingly.

There is always camping!

Room Tip: Toss of a coin. Maybe 2nd floor over the lobby? There is a patio above the portico. Otherwise they a...

We stopped in Covington on our way from Cleveland, OH to Lynchburg, VA and it was a great place to spend the night. Although the room was small, it was just what we needed. The price for the room (including a King bed) ended up being cheaper than we expected. It was very clean and in a great location. I would definitely stay here again!
