There is no other places around Hawks Nest to stay unless you travel to Fayetteville, WV. This is a nice place to stay and has lots of hiking thats walking distance of the lodge. The rooms have been nice and clean the last couple of times I have stayed there this year (2010). I have gotten a scenic room each... More

Situated right in the state park next to the Hawks Nest overlook of the New River Gorge, this is a great place for an overnight stop along Route 60, or if you are doing a rafting trip. Don't expect a National Park style lodge like in Yosemite or Yellowstone, this is basically a 60's motor lodge with a knockout view.... More

We stayed in a king corner suite for two nights, which we thought was worth the extra money. The views of the gorge from our room and the dining room were superb. Thanks to a tip from the desk clerk, we walked down the rail trail from Ansted. It was beautiful and not difficult. The breakfasts (included) were very good... More

On our recent trip I was trying to find interesting stopovers to break up the driving. The area around Hawk's Nest State park is best known for the great river rafting - but even if that's not your purpose, a night at the Hawk's Nest Lodge is still nice. We had a corner room on a higher floor that had... More

We tried to get a room but they were booked. We called at the last minute and they had had a cancellation. We are soooo glad that we stayed here. It is an older lodge but the bedding and carpet had been updated and the room was very clean. The front desk staff were excellent. The view off our balcony... More

I was travelling through southern WV the night the big snow storm hit (12/18/09). When I heard the highways southbound were blocked I decided to go the the Lodge at Hawks Nest and enjoy the views versus fighting the storm. Also, I had heard the Restaurant was under new Management as of early November and was anxious to see if... More

Had our 3rd annual three day visit here, 11-13 - 11-16, meeting with friends from Ohio. Another great visit! Lodge staff, including Park Rangers, could not have been nicer! The entire lodge is now non-smoking, making the stay even more enjoyable. Restaurant food was good along with the service. A word of caution - if you travel to Gauley Bridge,... More

I was at the lodge with a group using the conference room. All was well until we went to the restaurant for supper. The food was gooe when we finally got it. There was only 1 waitress for more then 10 tables. She was expected to wait on tables bus tables and collect the money. She was working her butt... More

We stayed in August 2009. Even though it was raining and misty for most of our stay (only stayed one night), the view was gorgeous and our room was lovely. We loved being on the lower level and sitting outside under the balcony. Unfortunely, the tram was closed when we were theere but we drove to the overlooks and hiked... More

The lodge has great views of the gourge, the rooms a little dated but were clean, the resturante was nice and prices were moderate. The hic-cups were as follows: from the balcony, each room has a great view unitl your try and sit in a chair. Then all you see is top 10 inch wide railing, the ironey of this... More
