I came to Blairmore expecting to do some hiking. It was the weekend of the big race, all the other hotels were booked up, so I decided I'd make do with this one. It is indeed a very basic hotel, not fancy, no elevator, showing its age, but the room had everything you could need - a clean, functioning bathroom, a TV with cable, a comfortable bed, air conditioner, lights, coffee maker - what else do you need? The staff person in the bar also looks after the front desk, so you might have to go looking for them, but when you find them you will be pleasantly surprised. The three women I dealt with were kind, friendly, and helpful. When it turned out that I would not be able to do the hike and wanted to go home a day early, the staff made it their business to get a refund for me - something I hadn't expected at all. I was touched that they'd go to so much trouble for me.
One caution: the railway is across the street and trains, though not frequent, are very noisy. But you hear them everywhere in Blairmore.
I would happily stay at the Cosmopolitan again. It met or exceeded my expectations in every way.
