The McLure Hotel & Suites
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Wheeling
Reviewed 20 September 2017

While I did enjoy my time at McClure, I have to say it wore me out to stay there. The rooms are accessible for walkers/wheelchairs from the front door, and there is temporary parking while unloading, but the free parking garage is very challenging. You have to go up or down stairs to an elevator, then get go up more stairs to the lobby elevator to get to your room. This is really unacceptable, even for an historic property. There should be handicap parking somewhere nearby. Everything else was great though. Excellent price, comfortable room, quiet. Staff was very nice. Internet was reliable even out in front of the building where you have to go to smoke. Sure they could use some aesthetic updates in halls and rooms, but it was clean and in working order. The meeting/ballroom/expo space is very nice as well. My only other complaint was that there was only one working ice maker, two floors below me. Fortunately the fridge kept my extra ice from melting quickly. I'd go again. But I'd bring someone to park and fetch the car for me!

Room Tip: Upper floors have a beautiful view of the river

We would go back to this hotel because of Fonia the front desk staff. She was very warm, welcoming, and extremely helpful.
The hotel is interesting and historic looking. The room was spacious and nice.

Thanks Fonia for making it a great experience!

The price on this hotel for a night was great at $64.00. But then we arrived and discovered why. The hotel boasts a historic past, but that doesn't compensate for the dreary state of the facilities. The walk from the parking garage down a filthy, water-stained hall to the front desk left a negative first impression. The lobby was large and kind of nice, but out-dated. The front desk person was pleasant and polite, but did not know anything about any nearby restaurants. There were no working ice machines on any of the hotel floors. The carpets were dingy. The room was disappointing. The sink was so old that the finish in the bowl was flaking off, though the bathroom was clean. The bed was as hard as a board. The AC control was so out of date as to be useless - the room was cold and resisted any of our attempts to set the temperature warmer. The morning continental breakfast was worthy of the cheapest hotel in the worst section of any metropolitan area - terrible coffee and pre-packaged breakfast items. The selection is better at a convenience store. All in all, very disappointing.

The glory days of this historic hotel are far, far behind it. The lobby looks nice, however there were multiple buckets throughout catching water from the ceiling. The rooms (at least ours and our friends') are a sad, worn-out messes and really need a refresh.

Every piece of furniture and throw pillow in our room had large stains on them, like people were spilling whole cups of coffee, however I don't believe these were coffee stains. The sofa by the window has the fabric torn on the arms and stuffing coming out of it, plus huge stains. The sitting chair had the same large stains on the cushions and back. The desk chair had mysterious white stain on the arm rest, that was a no-go area for us.

While the sheets looked clean, we pulled them back to find the mattress had the same large stains and the mattress pad was covered in short, black hairs that were embedded into it. After removing the pillow cases, we found the pillows had more of the large mystery stains.

Other disappointing aspects of the room were the bathroom with a leaking toilet, nasty looking sink with permanent rust stains, white AC vents with odd looking black stuff (possibly mildew or mold) on them, no door stopper so the drywall is bashed out where the door knob hit it. Lastly, this hotel has windows that slide up far enough that a person can climb through it, and one of our windows had the lock broken off of it. Normally it wouldn't be an issue, except we had a 1st floor room. We had to keep our valuables locked in our car as it was impossible to secure the room when we were away.

Overall, this hotel is was a big disappointment. The staff was friendly enough, but the room was a horrible mess and it made the entire stay uncomfortable. After seeing the similar conditions in our friends' rooms, we figured it was pointless to ask for a different room as we'd probably end up with the same issues. It was probably a wonderful hotel in 1917, but falls on the "unacceptable" list in 2017. There's no possible way we could recommend the McLure to anybody.

I would guess that I've stayed in bed over 70 hotels in the last six months. The winner of worst hotel: The McClure in Wheeling. By a knockout. Would you expect air when it's 84 degrees out? Nope. A fan? Nope. Help with a cab out?
Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.
You've been warned .
