The parking garage looked like somewhere you'd be murdered. The breakfast was cellophane wrapped Little Debbie type snacks. We were told one rate and charged another. Horribly dated. Looks like they updated it in the 70s and now that's where it's stuck. The girl at the front desk seemed annoyed to have to look up from whatever it was she... More

A long overdue review on a hotel that I stay at twice a year for the DOO WOP AND ROCK SERIES every march and October. Pleasant staff, clean hotel with rest and lounge with an add, cont breakfast in the am. If you need a place to stay in Downtown Wheeling WVA / this is the CHOICE!!!

These are exactly the type of words we like to see. It is true that the Doo Wop is still going on at the McLure Hotel. This review is a true testament for our accommodations, because we have high expectations for ourselves and we want to exceed those expectations for our guests. Thank you for letting us know that we... More

We stayed here for one night and had an overall good experience. The only issue was figuring out exactly how to enter the hotel from the parking garage at the rear. Entering from that direction can make the hotel seem a little less than appealing. However, once you get to the lobby and see the grand staircase, any trepidation you... More

Thank you for your review. We are proud of our hotel and we are proud that you were happy with us. Our hotel is a bit different than most of the hotels in our area, because of our historic significance and river view location. Long before this area was developed the McLure Hotel has been serving guests from all over.... More

In town on business, I had a hard time finding a place to stay anywhere near downtown. I was lucky enough to find the McLure Hotel and even though they where near full capacity, they did have a room available for the week. Micheal, Juan and the rest of the staff were all great folks. The room was clean, and... More

Thank you so much for giving us a great review. We surely are the only hotel in the Ohio Valley with such a great view. We are very fortunate to be next to one of the great river's for America. Thank you again for you contributing to us and the Wheeling area--it means a lot to us. More

This classic American style hotel has great views of the city of Wheeling and it's been recently updated (I saw the 100s of large flat screen boxes piled up outside). Like most of classic America The McLure has seen her better days but the owners are holding on to its glory as best they can. There's a pub inside and... More

Not sure why some of the recent reviews are so negative, seemed like a great place place to stay. Some of the things previous posters said were simply untrue. It is a very old building but they seem to have modernized most everything possible, I enjoyed staying in a place with so much history (check out the display case in... More

The photos don't truly reflect this ageing hotel which is now living off the former glory of past US Presidents having stayed there (40 years ago was the last Presidential visit, so nothing recent). As I approached the front door, the dusty frontage and unswept carpet mat announced that not a whole lot of extra mile cleaning goes on. The... More

It had been about 30 years since I stayed in this hotel and I think little has changed in the time, which is a nice way of saying that everything from the floor to the ceiling, including carpet, paint, furnishings, and fixtures hasn't been updated in 30 years. When I came to my room at about 9:00 pm and turned... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. I am unhappy to see this review, and that we could not make you happy.

We stayed at the McLure hotel while in town for a wedding. We had been warned by our friends that the hotel was a little outdated, but that is quite an understatement. This hotel is where dreams go to die. The sheets looked dirty, the furnishing looked shabby, but even if I could get passed that, the customer service that... More

Hi Joanna, I am sorry to see that no one took the time to give you a call to explain the charges. We usually have a set rate for our wedding/group guests that rarely changes. I am disappointed to see that no one took the time to call you back, this is not something we typically practice and I wonder... More

One evening last week (July, 2014) my husband and I had been away from home for ten days when we pulled off the freeway and into Wheeling with no reservation made ahead.

Thank you for your review of our hotel, unfortunately it is not the type of review we like to see. From my experience in the hotel industry, people get their perceptions from their environment.
