“Basic, wasn't as good as expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

After reading reviews about a tired hotel that had been updated and revived, we were expecting more, and were disappointed. Our king bed room was small and claustrophic feeling. The bathroom was barely large enough to turn around in and didn't have an exhaust fan. The sink (outside the bathroom) had a counter with little room for toiletries. The parking lot was not well lit and we had trouble navigating in the dark. After reading reviews from other travelers, I expected to be wowed by the updated hotel. Yes the carpet and bedding have been replaced, but the garment rack has some rust, the guest amenity book is falling apart, and the room smells stale. For the room rate, we expected much more than we received for our money. The next time we are passing this direction, we will probably drive a bit further for a nicer Holiday Inn. This is just an average hotel.

Stayed at this hotel last year andreturned this year and was pleasantly surprised that the company has renovated all the hotel rooms. New carpeting, drapes, bedding, furniture, it all surprised us. I have to laugh at one of the comments concerning the GM. The weekend we stayed at the hotel, there was a baseball tournament. We actually viewed the General Manager trying to deal with numerous parents who were obviously intoxicated. The GM had to deal with parents who were drunk and they invited their friends who were staying at other hotels that did not have a pool. I have to give the GM credit. His actions actually made me feel better, cause all the people who were not guests had to leave. There was more room for us. Dealing with drunk people, especially drunk baseball parents would be a challenge. The parents were drinking inside the pool, and it is clearly marked No Food and Beverage (for obvious reason) The hotel provided a picnic area outside the pool area. I plan on retuning next year. I hope the GM is still there. I have his back...LOL The staff is great and i know that comes from solid leadership.

Was at this hotel 14-18 July 2010 for a baseball tournament. The hotel itself is very old; worst HI facility ever experienced . Rooms are cramped and damp. All of this I can accept. What I cannot accept is a highly combative and anger driven GM that apparently has nothing better to do than attack guests at his leisure, including minors. To keep this brief, the rest of the staff was very pleasant, more so than usual to compensate for the anger issues of the GM. Of our group of approx. 30, at least a dozen had run-ins with him, sought out by himself. So bad was the staff embarrassed that the A-GM comped everyone in our group an almost free nights stay.

I have already submitted a complaint via Priority Club online and will be following up in person on phone. Be forewarned, do not stay here. Go across the highway to the hotel.

Nice clean basic hotel. The two young ladies were happy and helpfull. They recomended
a local ( not chain) pizza joint that was very good. Nice view of the local hills when sitting
at the pool. Make sure to save time to visit the toy museum in Wheeling.

This is our fifth or sixth time at the Holiday Inn, and it only gets better each time. I will not stay anywhere else when we go to Wheeling WV. We were in a renovated room that was just incredible. Color schemes were great as well at the new king bed. We slept like babys and woke up ready to go. And, once again the employees were out of this world in kindness. Do your self a favor and don't believe me, see for your self how nice this hotel is. If you want to be treated like family, this is the place.

This hotel is only average in amenities but the front desk staff is the best I have ever come across. Very welcoming and they have snacks in the evening in addition to the free breakfast. The free breakfast is much better than average. The rooms are clean
and quiet but not really modern. That is OK with me...I stay here because of the staff.

The management and staff were wonderful. The front desk, housekeepers and The GM all made us feel like we were at a "home away from home" . They were very concerned with our stay and safety. They called us back to ensure everything was fine with our rooms. They even had fresh made cookies one day and popcorn the next in the lobby.
Manager runs a good property.
