"There's a constant number of local people coming in here," says Hampton Inn's Desk Service Representative, Matthew Seifts,"They've asked us to call other local hotels, see if there's any availability, they've been outright traveling because they can't charge their phones. They don't have any place to open communications."
Martinsburg resident Angel Markley has been without power since Friday evening. She's been charging her lap top and working from the hotel.
"I'm working from the Hampton Inn because I have to work and I don't have internet anywhere," she says, "So, here we are at the Hampton."
The Hampton Inn is also accommodating power company workers who are in town to fix the outage, as well as its own crew. "Several of the employees are actually without power and most of them got theirs back today. Thankfully, over the weekend, since we didn't want anybody in here looking horrible," says Seifts, "We were just able to give them rooms."
Another guest, Austin Silvis, lives just ten minutes away in Kearneysville, West Virginia. He's been staying at the hotel since Saturday.
"We went to check on the dogs and clean out the fridge and it was bad," says Silvis. "Everything was gone, everything was bad, so we had to clean all that out."
In total all of Hampton Inn's 99 rooms were booked. The hotel says they're happy to accommodate a space for locals to call a home away from home down the street.
