My family stayed at this hotel following an unplanned trip to the Midwest for a funeral (because no one in our family can die unexpectedly anytime other than right before the holidays, evidently.) Barely making our way eastbound through West Virginia on a bottle of Peptobismal and a prayer thanks to a lovely gastro-bug, we made it to Covington and... More

Nice place, friendly staff. Lots of noise in parking lot from other guests or locals. Not much area for pets to exercise or do business. In walking distance to fast food or short drive to restaurants. Would stay again.

The hotel, while dated, is extremely clean. We were impressed with how thoroughly clean our room was. It was a king-bed non-smoking on the back of the hotel, and was also quite spacious. This hotel allows dogs, which is one of the reasons we chose it. After reading other reviews, I knew to ask for a room far away from... More

This hotel needs a remodel very badly. Front desk staff was courteous and efficient at check-in. The Hotel appearance itself is very dated. All rooms open to the outside. My biggest issue was that my room was just getting ready to be cleaned at 7:00 PM. I had been gone all day for work. I don't know if they need... More

An OK place to stay as long as you get a room away from the bar area; loud music at night. No mention that all rooms open to the outside; old style motel. Overall it met my needs for a place to stay. Since the rooms open to the outside, insects get into the room; killed 3 beetles on the... More

Like many renovated hotels, the minimum revisions to the decor have been done. However, the walls are very thin and the doors do not keep out noise either. They really should do something about the noise: insulate and/or double the drywall.

The addition of a full service restaurant at this hotel was very convenient and provided and excellent value. The room and interior were very nice. We drove past the entrance which is very close to the highway exit. We found it convenient and very comfortable after a long day of driving.
