We only visited this hotel, but the new owner appears to be restoring this grand hotel to its former glory. He won Frostburg’s Entrepernuerial Award in 2017 likely for his committment to his cause. The lobby and staircase are very nice and this hotel will likely become the epic

A unique and fun experience. I was in town for business and wanted to try something different, and this is it. A virtual history museum, and with classic rooms with classic furnishings. And the bar downstairs is something right out of The Great Gatsby. Check out the grand stairca

This a beautifully remodeled hotel lobby and adjacent restaurant/bar. The latter didn't even stay open a year after opening. I'm not sure how long the hotel is viable. The restaurant was advertised as being "upscale", and the prices proved that true. That was also the reason i

Response from KimberlyR492, Manager at Gunter Hotel

Actually that is not the reason it closed. The restaurant received mostly positive reviews and turned a profit. It is missed by many regulars in the community. Hopefully, it will reopen soon under new ownership.

We (middle aged couple with young adult daughter) were looking for a place to stay that provided a nice clean comfortable stay and stirred our interest and this truly did! After reading the descriptions before booking, we were quite curious about the town and hotel. The staff w

The Gunter Hotel is closed!
The Gunter Hotel is permanently closed, as well as The Gin Mill restaurant connected to the hotel. I was in Frostburg today and there is a sign on the door confirming this.

I would like to know if dogs are accepted and what the additional charges might be. We are traveling east with two well-behaved older dogs.
Sorry. Currently the owners have a no animal policy.

Is there free parking? Is there a pool or hot tub?
Yes they do have free parking in a parking lot at the back of the hotel. You would then enter the hotel in the back door on a lower level and go through a very interesting area that is a museum on your way to the elevator taking you to the main lobby. They do not have a pool or hot tub but that was not important to us. The age, design, and history of this old hotel was the important things and we were not disappointed.

"our room was a little small so perhaps one could ask for a little larger one"
"Book a larger room for added comfort."
"various size rooms, ask for a larger one if available."
"Kitchens are available in the suites."
"I got to look at a few rooms that were empty they were all very accommodating some were a little larger than others, but were charming."
