I've stayed here twice now and every time it gets better.Tracey and Sean at the front desk were very helpful with recommendations and making sure I got the right room type. The rooms are a great size and the bathrooms are in perfect condition. The breakfast always had plenty of food with a variety each day.
In terms of location, it's near the majority of the businesses in Summersville. A mile or so away from the wal mart, a bunch of food places and an emergency room 2 miles away ensures that you don't have to travel far for necessities.
In terms of proximity to the lake, it's about a twelve minute drive. Not as good as some of the camp sites, but not getting rained on during a storm more than makes up for that. We had a great time at this Hampton Inn and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the Summersville area.
