We stayed one night in a preferred room in Raven's Nest lodge on a trip down Skyline Drive. When we saw the room, we were wishing we had stopped hiking a little earlier so we could have enjoyed the room a bit more! This room was much more than we expected in a National Park. Don't get me wrong...we love the National Parks and have not yet had a bad experience, but usually the rooms aren't anything fancy. The bathroom was all ceramic tiled and the flooring in the hotel room was a wood style laminate. The bed was comfortable and the semi private deck had a gorgeous view! We had a delicious dinner at the dining room (the blackberry ice cream pie is a must try!) and got breakfast items from the "grab and go" area to eat on our balcony the next morning. The staff was as friendly as we have come to expect in the National Parks. If you are staying in the park, this is a great option!
