The Hawks Nest Lodge is an older lodge that could use some updating. It's clean and comfortable and the staff are first rate. Parking is great but go else ware for meals. The restaurant offers fair food, but drive for a good meal. The jet boat ride is terrific.

West Virginia state run park but clean efficient but not luxury rooms. The bed was comfortable and the view was awesome overlooking the guards down to the river. As I sat on my balcony, I could see the Hawks soaring in circles above the river which really added to my time there. By all means have dinner at the restaurant... More

Hotel is on State Park property, actual address is Ansted (not far from Beckley). Booked room with view of the Gorge and the view with definitely worth the extra $7, spectacular view of the New River from the balcony. Nice outdoor pool and did the GSYP trail down to the river and then back up with the aerial tramway which... More

If you want great views and a convenient location to the air tram, jet boat ride and hiking trails, it is all right there. Sacrifice a little luxury but not cleanliness. Restaurant breakfast is horrible, the complementary one and the one that cost $5.99. Skip it and have make a different plan. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would love... More

Stayed here with family for whitewater rafting on the Gauley and New Rivers. The lodge is definitely not up to par with hotels in other states, but this is in the mountain districts of one of the poorest states in the union, so you can't find too much fault with it. They do a great job with what they have.... More

If you want a place absolutely silent and pitch dark of a night, with the sounds of the river and trails to lull you to sleep, this is it. The breeze coming in had a chill and was refreshing. The rooms are small but adequate for a night's sleep. The water pressure was great, no vent in the bathroom. Take... More

We chose this hotel because the cold weather forced us to abandon our camp grounds at Adventure on the Gorge. We had to drive back and forth from this lodge to Lansing and Adventure on the Gorge (20 minutes each way), but this hotel was just so cute. From the fireplace in the lobby to the the acceptable free breakfast... More

My parents and I stayed in a suite for our family reunion at Hawk's Nest and it was a lovely place to stay. The view is phenomenal, the price of the rooms was good, the staff was very helpful and accommodating, and the pool was relaxing. A couple of pieces of advice, though: 1. The restaurant is not good at... More
