“WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

I was blown away by this hotel. I stayed there for the night so my wife and kids and I could see the lights at Oglebay. I used HHonor points and expected this to be a typical Hampton... a nice and clean hotel, but nothing really special. I was very surprised and have already made plans to go back for a weekend with friends and their kids. The rooms were typical, but perhaps a bit bigger, the staff was over the top helpful - even offering us hockey tickets to a game that night. While the hotel is not as refined as a Conrad, the drive is there...

What made this hotel so great, and really a destination is the pool area. The pool has all sorts of great 'things' for kids from a rain "shower" coming from ceiling to water spouts, and on and on. It has a swim spa built in to the main pool, a hot tub, steam roomS. During the summer there is also an outdoor water area for the kids.

This is wheeling, so it is not a huge destination, but if you are within a couple hours of it, it is a great weekend with the kids. Good family restaraunts nearby, Cabellas - which is fun whether you are a hunter/outdoorsman or not just to see all animals, and of course Oglebay and its golf courses.

As you can tell, i was blown away by the quality of this Hampton and their attention to detail and customer services.

There are two Hamptons in Wheeling, make sure you get the right one... this is close to Oglebay and Cabellas.

Room Tip: We were right outside the elevator and our wall shared with the icemaker. I didnt hear a thing thou...

They charged our debit card three times for our stay. Caused my bank account because of those three charges to overdraft. When i called them the woman manager actually laughed and said oh my bad. No refund was given for all the bank charges I was hit with, no apology, just rude and unhelpful .

This Hampton Inn is in a great location to stay when visiting Oglebay Park Festival of Lights and/or enjoy time at the Casino / Race track @ Wheeling; Both just a few mile away.. I have stayed here a few other times, but was impressed with their new indoor Pool area. Nice pool, Steam rooms indoor and outdoor Hot tubs.
This Hampton is very well maintained and mangaged. As I was leaving, they were cleaning the outside of the windows with a Boom truck ( in December).. Amazing...
Always someone around with a smile and looking to give assistance if needed.. I will visit again!!!

Room Tip: Book this place in advance - it fills up often..

We recently visited this property for a one night getaway to meet some family half way. This recently renovated property was a delightful surprise! The lobby was very warm and inviting and included a cozy fireplace area and a beautiful fish tank that kept amazing my kids. There is hot apple cider and freshly baked cookies to welcome you in the afternoon. The breakfast buffet was the best I have seen at the Hampton Inn in a long time and the attendants stayed on top of keeping everything well stocked on a busy Sunday morning. We spent hours in the aquatic center, it is beautifully designed and very family friendly. Indoor & outdoor hot tubs were a pleasant surprise and enjoyed by all of us! We can’t wait to return in the summer so the kids can play in the outside water area and we can enjoy the nice fire pit area. The rooms were updated and very comfortable and each employee that we met went out of their way to help us and make sure we enjoyed our stay.
Just one word of caution if you go during the holiday season, make sure you have a GPS or ask the hotel staff for some alternate routes because the traffic back up from the Oglebay light display can be horrendous on a Saturday night. Outside of that this was a perfect stay – thank you!

Just visited this hotel with my family for a night. We were so impressed. The hotel has been completely renovated. Amazing pool. Indoor and outdoor hot tub too! The pool has fun water features. The kids and adults loved it.
Outside, they even have a fire pit at night. Very nice on a cool December night.
The lobby has a fireplace. They have nice extras like snacks and boardgames. There's also a gorgeous salt water fish tank with a book explaining each fish in the tank.
The rooms are a bit small but very comfortable. Super clean too. We had a king sized bed and a pull out sofa for our son. Even with the hotel sold out, it was nice and quiet.
We were impressed by the staff. Lots of friendly faces making sure that everyone is comfortable and enjoying their stay. And of course, the included breakfast is always good.
Wheeling is a convenient location for us to meet up with relatives. Oglebay resort apparently has an amazing light display for Christmas. We didn't go as the traffic was unbelievable. We heard that people spent 2 hours in traffic just to see the lights.
Plenty of restaurants in the area. Cabelas is fun to visit as well. The shopping plaza was very crowded with holiday shopping.

For the prices, few complaints can be had about this recently renovated property. The highlight of that renovation has to be the jaw dropping indoor/outdoor aquatic center. I've seen less fancy pools in Vegas! The pool itself is outfitted with a number of waterfall, bubble, fountain features. The center is complete with mens and ladies steam showers, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and a number of accessible features. The location is very convenient as well.
My only gripe is the ventilation regularily introduced cigarette smoke to our non-smoking room.
