I know this hotel well. We have 2 hotels from this chain in Bangalore, South India. This hotel in Covington is very good and the Bangalore hotels are also good. I recommend to all my friends in Bangalore to stay in this place when they visit Virginia. The world is fully connected now. People travel all over and India and... More

Band played in bar until 2:00 AM. Music so loud it rattled windows. People roaming and talking outside room until 2:00 AM. Many bugs and spiders in room! Front desk lady said this is normal. Worst Best Western I have ever stayed in!

Very loud band played in the bar until 2AM. Sound from band instruments actually rattled the room windows. People from bar were outside at times talking loud and screaming. Very little sleep that night. Discovered spider webs in corner of room with live spiders. Next morning found several bugs, black in color about one half inch long in room. This... More

Ok. The rooms open into the parking lot, so I got an upstairs room I thought that good for security purposes and noise, carlights reduction, etc. Problem solved! No elevator, however, but not an issue for me. The hotel has a nice dining area open in the PM until 9:00 PM so that worked for me. They didn't have my... More

Our dog is part of our family and gets included often in our plans. We were happy to find this Best Western that welcomed four legged guests.The staff was friendly and helpful, The breakfast was very good and the value was very good. They seemed to appreciate our business.

We booked this room on Hotwire for a $109/night (after tax) which advertised a 3-star hotel. False. We ended up w/ a smoking room, because that's all that was left. The guy did give us a room spray. There was hair (long and short kind) and bugs all over the bathroom floors. The tub had a slow leak. The room... More

Booked 8 rooms for business and everything was great. Enjoyed the lounge and restaurant in the morning for breakfast. Would stay here again when passing through Covington. Would recommend for family and friends. The only issue might be the outside entries to rooms during the winter months.

I travel to several AKC Agility Competitions & Training/Seminars around the country. I was lucky to locate this mountain gem that was pet friendly, safe area to walk late at night with my pets and did not overcharge for their stay. The breakfast buffet was the old fashioned kind that I truly enjoyed. My room was very clean, up-to-date and... More

Avoid this hotel on Thursdays through the weekend if a premium on quietness and restfulness is placed. In this manner, an individual will be shielded from onsite bar room noise and obnoxious, boisterous, intoxicated football crowd during the football season.
