This was a most unusual place. I found the parking and entered in the lower level where there was a museum of sorts - strange exhibits of dolls and memorabilia and stuffed animals. This was a little creepy and then when I went upstairs the TV was blasting a religious show of Hail Marys. The lobby itself was interesting in... More

When it was built in 1896, this was the Hotel Gladstone, certainly the grandest accommodation in these parts. When you walk in the front door of the Hotel Gunter today, one can almost imagine the bellboys in brown uniforms with pearl buttons as they appeared in those halcyon days. The grand staircase before you looks every bit like a set... More

Ah, the Hotel Gunter -- or Falinger's, or however you refer to it, this was an experience! This hotel requires time to look around and enjoy all the furnishings and appointments. You travel up from the basement level and the back parking lots through the winding maze of a corridor to the front desk -- and be sure you do... More

This is not your average hotel and if you are very selective in your hotel choices, this is probably not for you. This is a very old hotel that was restored back in the 1980's by a local family. I was born in this town and traveled back for a visit. It is in the center of town so it... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Gunter, and it is a reminder of what a 100+ year old hotel was. That's because it is a 100+ year old hotel. We had a small room but quiet, save for the A/C unit. It's kind of a maze getting from the parking lot in rear to the lobby, but you go through... More

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...
