Somewhat confusing to enter. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Shower was nice. Awkward to get in and out of bathroom as it is really small and you have to stand between toilet and shower or behind the door to open. Not enough room to be standing in a comfortable position to exit the bathroom. The lounge was loud as we...

Hotel was clean. Maintenance could be better. The tub faucet was leaking at a stream not a drip. Thermostat on heater did not work had to get up all through the night to turn on and off the heating system.

Honestly, the hotel scene is Covington is extremely sparse. It gets even harder when only TWO of the hotels within 10 miles allow pets :( Thankfully, Best Western let us bring our four legged girl along with us. So the Pros: It was me, my girlfriend, and her two sisters all in a suite with two full sized beds on...

My wife and I was very tired since we drove all the way from Illinois. We wanted to stop and regroup. The front desk clerk was nice but the hotel was the worst I have ever encountered by Best Western. I was not aware of the poor quality as outside room doors. Dusty, bed had hair, room was very cold...

Gotta be honest, the hotel choices in Covington are pretty limited. I've stayed at the Best Western Mountain View several times over the last 15 or so years. Although I don't get to the Covington area very often, Best Western Mountain View is my hotel of choice in Covington.

Found the hotel staff to be very helpful. The property is pet friendly and there are a number of dining options and points of interest nearby. Upon first arrival, entry to property is somewhat clumsy due to geographic location, but from that point on no problem. We stayed three nights and actually found the location convenient. Will stay there again...

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.)

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...
