This Holiday Inn Express receives a poor rating from me. I have stayed at a lot of HIE in the South and South East. It is in need of some TLC. To start with we had a double bed rental. One of the beds had been made with dirty sheets...Nasty! The pillows were flat as a pancake. One of the... More

Perfect location along I-64, quiet, clean. Nice breakfast spread. Indoor pool, even though I didn't use it. It appeared to be clean and cared for. Awesome staff, especially Dreama at the front desk. Plenty of parking. Good choice for a stay in Covington.

The hotel is a typical Holiday Inn Express. It is clean and comfortable, with a free breakfast. Our room had a big comfy chair for sitting and reading. There was also a refrigerator. There is plenty of counter space in the bathroom - lack of counter space is one of my pet peeves. The staff were friendly and seemed efficient.... More

First of all, I traveled there during riverfest, which is one of the busiest times of the year. However, when we tried to check in at 3:45 (very reasonable) the rooms weren't ready. Out of our 4 reserved rooms, the last one wasn't ready till nearly 5. Breakfast was decent, a normal hotel spread. The coffee in the room was... More

Heading for Tulsa, Oklahoma on a Sunday evening, and pulling a car trailer, we needed accommodations close to I-64. We were able to pull the truck and trailer into their parking lot and were able to keep an eye on it from our 3rd floor room. Which, by the way, was sparkling clean with an ice-cold air conditioner. The housekeeper... More

Average room. Very clean but on the pricey side. Eating area too small needs to be larger. Breakfast time could be extended for those coming in late. Check in was easy. Friendly staff. Didnt use pool or fitness center but looked nice.

We needed a place to stay for the night so we picked this place despite the mixed reviews. It was fine. Very clean rooms and establishment also has very friendly employees. We had an issue with the toilet not flushing but once we told the manager, it was taken care of. It was a great place to stay for the... More

Room 306 7/11-7/12. Open the door and the overwhelming smell of mold hits ya. We quickly found out why. The bathroom has mold ever place you'd expect it in a hotel room. In the calking around the tub, on then ceiling, in the grout. Other than that; the room and hotel are average. Not really updated and maintained. From one... More

It has an indoor pool, hot tub, small exercise room. Pretty clean. Relatively large rooms and Queen beds. We put three kids in one. Typical free breakfast. Friendly staff. Right off the expressway it was perfect for a quick overnight. No dogs except service.
