A Hotel with a Tradition of Comfort and Luxury

Originally built in 1892 as a ‘Railroad Hotel’, Mineola’s Beckham Hotel was the temporary home to railroad workers, loggers, and cattlemen in its early years and boasts a colorful, and even haunted history.

Purchased by W.L. Beckham in 1926 following a fire that nearly destroyed the building, the first and second floors of the hotel were restored and reopened as the ‘New’ Beckham Hotel in 1928 and continued to operate until 1979.

In 2018, this resilient hotel started undergoing a major renovation by its current owners and is able to welcome its first overnight guests in more that 40 years. Now, with its historic décor and warm atmosphere, the Beckham has 18 completed rooms, including two suites, with eight more rooms slated to be done before the project will be complete.

The Beckham Ballroom

The Beckham Ballroom is ideal for hosting events like luncheons, parties, weddings, and receptions. Enjoy your special event in a beautiful venue that has been masterfully restored, complete with the original hardwood floor-over-floating dance floor design – a design although common in the early 20th century, is not commonly found today. Gorgeous chandeliers hang elegantly from the high ceilings, creating just the right ambience, while massive windows line the walls offering a glimpse of the rail line below.
