“Primitive and charming! ”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

We were traveling on business, and needed to spend the night in Wheeling. We tried the Hampton Inn, but it was full. So, we checked trip advisor and found the Oglebay. We actually felt as if we stumbled upon a better deal. The grounds and buildings were full of history and charm. Though our room was somewhat rustic, it was clean and fine to sleep in. The brunch the next morning, was fantastic! Making the Oglebay comparable in price to the Hampton Inn.
Check it out, we really enjoyed our stay!

The grounds are of topnotch resort quality. Everybody I met there was cordial and nice. Lodging was first rate. Mountaineer breakfast was phenomenal. Golf courses were of championship quality as advertised. Employees were very helpful, talkative and nice. Played 90 holes in three days and loved every minute of it at a great price. Will be there again next year.

Room Tip: Traditionals are cheap but small. Space is well utilized. Pillowtop mattresses were very comfortable...

The Wilson Lodge and Oglebay is the best place to visit for a relaxing getaway. They are amazing food, lodging, and shops. It was so wonderful. The best breakfast I have ever had was the breakfast buffet. Everything was fresh and flavorful. We went for our anniversary and it was so nice... from the outdoor pool to the Sweet Shoppe it was all amazing. I would highly recommend visiting Oglebay's for a weekend. Can't wait to try out a Murder Mystery Dinner sometime!

Room Tip: I would say all the rooms look to have wonderful views of the golf and wooded areas. Very romantic a...

We just attended an event - the staff was extremely nice and our $200.00+ per night room was beautiful. Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately we had others in our party who stayed in "traditional" rooms and those rooms were absolutely horrendous - dim lighting, musty smell, filthy carpeting, dirty baseboards in the bathroom and all around the bedroom. We met a woman on the elevator and she told us that they had just checked in and were immediately checking back out! NOT a happy person to say the least. To even FIND your room while navigating through a maze of hallways and levels is in and of itself ridiculous! In addition the food that was served during the event we attended was disappointing - meat was dry and lacked flavor BUT the woman who serviced our table was absolutely wonderful! To sum it all - the staff is great, higher priced rooms are nice, but those sub-standard, "traditional" rooms are worse than ones you can find in a low, budget motel setting. This place should hang their heads in shame!!!

We had a great weekend stay at Oglebay with the extended family. Plenty to do...everything from golfing, to walking along the trails, to paddle boats. Oglebay has something for everyone. Nice rustic interior for the older rooms...a bit small, but overall comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay here again!

Our annual golf trip was an excellent experience. We stayed at the Wilson Lodge, played the Palmer and Jones Courses, and dined at the Wilson Lodge as well. Everything was first class, and the staff were both friendly and helpful. We will be back, I'm sure.

Room Tip: The Wilson Lodge was both comfy and classic. Our room faced the parking lot and the Crispin Course...

What a beautiful resort! The scenery is just spectacular! Just walking around makes you feel better. And you really need to walk after a delicious meal in the dining room! Hoping to return for an extended visit.
