This hotel was very comfortable. We stayed here along with 3 other couples while in Wheeling for a show at the Capital Theater. It was within walking distance of the theater and restaurants and bars. The hotel has a restaurant although we didn't eat there but we did spend a few hours at the hotel bar which was nice with... More

Was traveling looking for a place to stay with a Jacuzzi tub in the room on short notice, definitely not a good choice! Was a little scared when we drove into the creepy parking building! Walk into the room and walk right back out of the hotel and went to the Hampton. The blinds in room was messed up, people... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you were not pleased with your room. Our Jacuzzi room is on the bottom floor of the hotel and it is perfectly safe, but some people prefer to be on a higher floor which is understandable. Unfortunately, we do not have a Jacuzzi room on one of our higher... More

This hotel is very old and in desperate need of a complete renovation. The rooms are very large and have a small microwave and refrigerator. The bedroom area has four night stands, two at the bed and two along side a pullout sofa. Heater did not work sufficiently. Bathroom ok. Furniture very old.

Thank you for your review. We agree with you that we need to make some updates. We are currently in the process of renovating our bathrooms and furniture. We see some needs to the rooms as you pointed out, and we are taking steps towards making a better guest experience. We have just recently stripped and repainted the walls and... More

It is now 1142pm. We have to drive to Maryland in the morning. We couldn't sleep because smoke detector battery was dying and beeping ever 30 seconds. so we call desk.

Thank you for the review. Reviews like yours are always helpful, because we need to know when we don't succeed. We are apologetic to hear that our service lapsed in hospitality. We are committed to quality service and we will take this experience and learn from it. Mystifyingly, our smoke alarms do not make a beeping a sound at all... More

We stayed one night at the McLure for a wedding in downtown Wheeling. We reserved two rooms for one night. The rooms because of an error (early check out of previous guest) were not cleaned. The hotels in the area were sold out so we could not move that night. Our room although non-smoking had a strong smoke odor. Our... More

Thank you for your review and your time. We are apologetic to hear that your room smelled of smoke. Our non-smoking rooms should never be smoked in, and if you choose to smoke in the room there will be a fine, but some do go undetected. In certain cases, people are more sensitive to smoke than others and that is... More

Made reservations online...an hour before my arrival I get a phone call saying that my reserved room is not available and they don't have any rooms left at all.

Thank you for your review. This review is accurate, but there is another side to the story. The guest made a reservation on our site that should have been closed out, due to a sale out.

Grand old downtown hotels have fallen on hard times, and this hotel is no exception. Look at the displays in the lobby to see how glorious the last hundred years of this hotel have been. Our room was recently renovated, sparkling and clean. The service was friendly and helpful. The elevator is right out of a 1956 movie. We agree... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate you noticing our history. The McLure Hotel first opened in 1852 and has always been a hotel. We have a great article about the hotel's history at the front desk in case anyone is interested in the hotel's past. I'm glad you noticed our convenient location off of Interstate-70 at Exit-1A.

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
