My wife and I spent a wonderful July 4th weekend at the hotel. Very eclectic, old (but very functional) furnishings throughout - its basement museum on coal mining and the old Frostburg jail is a must-see! We slept with the room windows open both nights of our stay - very quiet environment with views of Morantown valley. It seems as... More

Failinger's Hotel Gunter (FHG) is unlike anyplace I have ever stayed overnight. Overall, the stay was fine. The room was clean and spacious, and all technologies functioned properly. Anyone born after 1945 might not recognize the public spaces in the interior of the building as a hotel; it is more like a gigantic mansion. Several portions of the space are... More

My wife and I enjoy old hotels, and Failingers' is a fun one! The Hotel is full of Victorian bric-brac and has a lovely two story oak staircase. It is in need of another restoration (the last was in the 70s?), and thus is not for everyone, but for lovers of historic Americana. I give it four stars with a... More

A real old hotel that has been restored by the Faillinger family. I have been going there for years and they never fail to show the best hospitality to me and other members of my biking group. I would recommend this as an overnight stop for any one riding the Pittsburgh to Washington DC route.

Stayed here in April, 2013. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was filling and included a few home-made baked goods. The room was clean and had the usual amenities: wifi, TV, clock radio, toiletries, plenty of lighting, etc. But what makes this place so great is it's like staying in some giant old mansion owned by an old...

Stayed at the Hotel Gunter one night during a trip through western Maryland and West Virginia. The hotel is nothing if not unique. We stayed here because of the location and were glad we did. Read the other reviews for info on the decor and quirks. It is all true. Dolls, victorian wallpaper, bizarrely incongruous 'museums' and collections. There is... More

We loved this bizarre hotel experience passing through Frostburgh, MD on purpose. We made our reservation en route to Virginia from Michigan in August. It was already chilly-cool in this lovely mountain town. Gunter is in the downtown/mainstreet area. The hotel is a brick front edwardian-style building. It has a period-theme lobby with sad furniture. The sweet and attentive front... More

The hotel is just great. uper clean, great customer services and good price. The hotel common areas and the rooms were all immaculate and decorated in very good taste. We were able to extended our stay fortunately to May 27. They are also very helpful for bicyclists. Very grateful for their super services.

Go back in time with this weird, strange, but good hotel in Frostburg. The room was really small with a barely functioning AC unit and the hotel had an odd vibe to it, but it was worth the hassles to stay in a neat place like this. The staff was very friendly but I didn't have any problems to test... More

We had stayed at a chain hotel the last time we were in Frostburg, but decided to take a chance on the Gunter this time. Easy to make a reservation over the phone, although their website is a bit off-putting without online reservation access or updated/larger facilities photos. Check-in was easy and the front desk clerk was very friendly and... More
