I stayed two nights at this location during a recent motorcycle trip. The hotel is new, so everything is in good shape. The location is removed from everything. It looks like eventually, development in the surrounding area will catch up. To its credit, the hotel does offer a shuttle van if you have a destination and don't want to drive or ride. As far as the hotel goes, it is a good Hampton Inn with all that implies. Breakfast is hit or miss. If you get there when the college athletic team from out of town is monopolizing the lunch room, you might as well forget breakfast. If you get there at a lucky moment, there is reasonable seating, but you still have to fight your way around the breakfast counter to get something. Why hotels don't invest in a commercial toaster is a mystery to me. The entire breakfast crowd has to take turns using one pathetic toaster. Despite the free breakfast, I usually find it more pleasant and appetizing to go out for breakfast. Anyway, I don't go to hotels for their breakfast, so I can forgive this shortcoming. Downtown Elkins is a couple of miles away and has a modest selection of restaurants, But everything in town seems a bit worn around the edges. The dinning scene in that area is on the level of Applebees.
Anyway, if you have reasons to spend the night in Elkins the Hampton is a good place to lay your head. I also appreciate their courtesy in allowing me to park my motorcycle in the front of the hotel, under cover.
