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 the lobby). The staff was great, way above typical chain hotels employees. The room was very clean as were the halls and came with everything you would need for an extended stay. The fact that they have a bar and restaurant on site made my stay even more enjoyable, met many nice people there. Big screen TV with showtime, great view of the Ohio river, screaming fast WiFi, ice and pop machine on every floor and very comfy mattress.
If you want to stay downtown Wheeling, this is far and away your best bet. The River City Ale house is steps away as is the riverfront entertainment area know as Heritage Port where the have live music and events all the time. I was lucky enough to enjoy the Blues Festival during my stay. Yes, some downtown businesses have been forced to close down but this is by no fault of the McLure. There is a Subway ,7-11 and three pizza parlors within walking distance.
I spend over 200 days a year in hotel rooms across the country, most of the time I stay about one month. It was great to be at place that I could make friends for that short period because everyone was so nice. If you need to be in Wheeling for an extended stay, don't stay miles away at one of the chain hotels, go downtown and enjoy yourself!
