The very top of West Virginia may be small, but it crams in a lot between the Ohio and Pennsylvania borders, including Mount Saint Joseph or the Holloway Estate. This historic motherhouse dates back to the 1850s and joins other buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Admire the old architecture, river views and Wheeling Island when you stay at these hotels nearby – bookable on Culture Trip.

The chances are high that Oglebay has everything you want in a resort. A pool and a spa? Check. Golfing, hiking and horseback riding? Triple check. A full-blown zoo? Of course. There’s so much to do in every season at Oglebay that you’ll rarely spend a moment awake in your lodge. If you’re not careful, lunch will slip right by, which would be a shame considering the resort has eight awesome dining spots to eat your way through.

2. Hampton Inn Wheeling

This Hampton Inn 2mi (3km) outside Wheeling raises the bar when it comes to on-site amenities. Forget the small pool and puny gym you’d find at most budget hotels; this one has a full fitness center, outdoor courts and an aquatic center with a pool and a sauna. It also offers a free shuttle service that’ll take you everywhere from the Oglebay Institute Glass Museum to the Oglebay Institute Stifel Fine Arts Center.

Peeking over the creek at Wheeling University is this SpringHill Suites by Marriott. This budget-friendly hotel is close to downtown, getting you down to Heritage Port or rinkside for a Nailers game in less than 10 minutes. Your suite has a kitchenette, too, if you happen to have any leftover slices of DiCarlo’s Pizza to bring home. Fell asleep before you got a chance to reheat them as a late-night snack? Don’t worry – you’ll more than get your fill at the complimentary breakfast in the morning.

The Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack is a playground for adults. You can spend hours in your suite, lounging around the living space without ever spending a dime. But where’s the fun in that?

Go and get your money’s worth at the buffet.

Whether you’re destined for the Buckeye State, the Keystone State or somewhere between, you can get in, get out and get going in no time from this well-placed hotel.

Grab a complimentary java in the lobby on your way out, along with a delicious cinnamon roll.

Sleep Inn and Suites is unsurprisingly a lovely place for sleeping in, sweetly. Large, comfy beds will have the sandman knocking in no time, though you should know that Moundsville is also worth exploring. For example, you can visit the fascinating Delf Norona Museum next to the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex – if you ever get tired of Ohio River views, that is. You could also find your way to the West Virginia Penitentiary if you’re brave enough to tiptoe through its paranormal hallways at night.

7. Comfort Inn
