This place has great vibes. We did not want to leave. The staff was great. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location was in the center of all the action. The room rate was cheap and we even got free parking. We will return to this hotel.

Unique hotel built in 1890's & restored in 1980's. Great service and friendly staff. We had just ridden the Ohiopyle to Frostburg segment of the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail & wanted a nice hotel for the evening. The Gunter is on the main street of Frostburg, easily accessible to a choice dining options. Breakfast was at a diner across... More

My wife and I stayed one night while attending a conference at FSU. When we walked into the back door, it seemed a very weird place. You enter in the basement and walk down a long corridor with "museums" and pictures on either side. It's a bit creepy because there are tons of doll collections and the place was used... More

This was a perfect stop on my road trip. The place was clean, comfortable, and the desk clerk was accommodating. A unique place with an interesting history but with free wi-fi and a fridge in the room. A really great change from the standard chain hotels. The room was immaculate!

After reading the great reviews about Failinger's Hotel Gunter on TripAdvisor, we decided to book a night here while we were in the area for a wedding. We usually stay in higher end hotels as I am picky about where I sleep, but with slim pickings in the area, I thought it would be interesting to stay in some place... More

We actually changed our auto routing to stay here and it was well worth. An amazing job of restoring a grand old hotel with reception and lobby, rooms, and halls all immaculate and beautifully decorated for the period when the hotel was built. Staff is very helpful. Location is central. Even WiFi throughout! Breakfast is continental so don't expect waffle... More

The hotel is located downtown on the main street and is quite and comfortable but does not... More

On a car-trip vacation to visit friends and family in various parts of the south Atlantic to the midwest, we reserved this hotel for one night during our travels. We prefer to stay in unique hotels, but have really high expectations for cleanliness. We arrived and immediately checked out the room - super clean! We could tell the property owners... More

Hotel was clean and staff was very pleasant. Upon check-in, the lady at the front desk noticed that my husband and I were travelling by motorcycle and offered to let us put the bike in the garage, instead of leaving it out in the open. The first night we declined the offer, but the second night Tropical Storm Bill was... More
