“Best Western Covington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Stayed here for the Greenbrier classic golf tournament (2nd year staying here for the tournament) and have no complaints. Now, this hotel is NOT the homestead or the Greenbrier (both of which we have stayed in) but the hotel is easy to find (right off the interstate), clean and has most of what you need. Pool, ice, restaurant, bar....Food is not 5 star mind you but is good and its right on site.

Already booked for next years tournament if that tells you anything. The staff is VERY nice and very helpful. The lady working the desk when we checked in had no power at her house but was upbeat and not complaining.

Room 139 had bedbugs Wed. June 14/12. Roommate was bitten. Other bugs were running around on sheets when we checked in the morning. Received full room refund, should have been more!
Bar is rough.

We stopped in Covington on a trip east and tried the best western mountain view without knowing anything about the hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it isn't brand new, but the room was a good value for the price. We were given a voucher for a free breakfast and a discount on dinner.

Room Tip: The rooms open to the outside, which my wife doesn't like, but it was not a problem for us.

This location was formerly a Holiday Inn many years ago. The property received a face-lift a few years ago when it converted to Best Western and is in average condition as it's a little dog-eared.. The room was clean but not spotless. The bed wasn't the most comfortable but I managed to get a good night's sleep. The HVAC unit was a little noisy. Again, nothing terrible or worth a complaint to the front desk - everything about the room was just average.

Breakfast was included with the room and was above average as it was served in the onsite restaurant with a wait staff and the food was cooked to order.. The hotel and restaurant staff were very friendly.

I would consider staying here again in the future.

My son and I were traveling from a soccer tournament in Williamsburg VA back to WV during a terrible snow storm. We had driven about 6 hours and decided that we could not make it any further because of the road conditions. I had seen this motel sitting by the road many times from our trips going past Covington, so when we got off from the interstate that night, we headed up the hill to this Best Western. The staff were friendly and and lobby was clean. The gas fireplace offered a nice touch and we warmed ourselves there for a while. Our room wasn't anything special, but it was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. The restaraunt was already closed by the time we arrived so we just made a short trip out to get something and eat back in the room to relax. The TV was very nice and the Wi-Fi worked well for us as well. We used the coupon for a free breakfast in the morning, which we received upon check-in. The wait staff was friendly and we had a nice hot breakfast while looking out the windows at the snow. This stay was very nice for having to find a hotel in an emergency.

I was traveling through the area in the middle of a snow storm. I decided I couldn't drive anymore so I pulled off looking for a hotel. I'm very glad I found this one, and I was pleasantly surprised. Very clean with a friendly staff. The beds were very comfortable. You even get a free breakfast voucher for the restaurant.

Friendly and efficient staff, but threadbare and a bit depressing. The room smelled of air freshener, probably an attempt to mask the effect of 20 years of smokers. The free breakfast was good, and the free Internet worked fine. One fun thing is that the hotel has a popular bar, which gets a good local Saturday night crowd, which was fun for mingling with residents of this heartland mill town. In the end I had a decent night's sleep.

In summary, humble, but reasonable value.
