I stay at the Mountaineer every time I come in to visit my family. Each room is named after someone famous who stayed there. It is historic but the rooms I have stayed in are updated nicely. The bedding is comfortable, new flat screens, refrigerators, and plenty of room. The only complaint is the bathrooms are small and outdated.

They bill themselves–rightly–as a historic hotel. Back in the late 1920's when it was built it was the latest and greatest hotel, with luxury and cache for well-off travelers. many famous people stayed there. Walking into the lobby you are thrust back to that period. Charming, for sure. But, unfortunately for us, the charm stopped on the ground floor. Our room was dark-poorly lit, oddly furnished and with quite bare walls, in no way giving off a historic vibe. There was a fridge but no in-room coffee. We had to get our (warm) coffee from a push dispenser in the lobby. The bed was comfortable and gave us a good night sleep. No breakfast provided but they are renovating their restaurant.

No chain or deadbolt on the door. I could understand everything people talked about in the hallway. the bathroom was clean but the paint on the tile and the bathtub was peeling. There were two portable electric heaters and a window air conditioner.

This historic hotel is very well kept up. The lobby brings you back in time to the high-class nostalgia of travel. Our favorite part of the hotel is the vintage Otis elevator which is manually operated. If you are a history buff this place will impress you.

I've stayed twice in the past six months. Loved both visits as the staff is extremely accommodating and the manager clearly has a vision for the hotel. It's not perfect as the furniture is dated and the window A/C noisy, but the important stuff is great. The bedding was clean and cozy, the towels fluffy, and I simply enjoyed the ambiance of a downtown hotel. The Wifi worked well too. Williamson and the surrounding area have a many interesting stories to tell. I'll be back.
