Ok I stayed here last year for a fishing trip. The price is cheap the location to shaffers fork is unbelievable for the price. Indoor pool is a plus also. The rooms were clean and very spacious. the room had 2 kings and a recliner in it. My friends and I grilled out in the parking lot no one complained... More

On October 2, 2010, I went with my husband on a trainride in Elkins. It was a beautiful trip. We wanted to stay at one of the hotels next to the train station but they had because of the fall festival going on increased their prices and we could not afford $140.00 for the rooms they had left. We drove... More

Roaches in room. Hotel is suspended from "Choice Hotels" so you get NO points for your stay. However, no one told us that until we got a letter in the mail today 11/2/09

We decided to go on a weekend getaway. All the hotels were booked for the weekend so we ended up here. It was horrible! The rooms were scary. It was filled with hunters and truck drivers. The kids wanted to go swimming in the pool but it was disgusting and scary! The hot tub was just the size of a... More

We found the Econolodge in Elkins, WV to be perfectly fine. We're a family of four, our room had two double beds (the pillows were flat but that's the only complaint), the room was dated but very clean, everything was in working order, and it was quiet. The motel offers a simple continental breakfast which was nice. I left my... More

I stayed at this motel for one night. I asked for a non-smoking room and it smelled of smoke. I was switched to another "non-smoking" room and it smelled of smoke as well. The employees were not very friendly. I felt as though they were doing me a favor. I would not return again.

We stayed in Elkins for 2 days on business, and the Econo Lodge had some of the better ratings for the price on this website. It was less than 2 miles for my partner to get to his job, so the motel was in a great location. For being located on US Route 33, I must say that it was... More

This was not a nice place. The rooms are old, and look it. The bed was hard as a rock. The bathroom was really grungy with the dirt of many, many years. The window air conditioner "sang" very loudly the entire time I was there. Very poor breakfast, especially the coffee. If you stay, try to get a room in... More
