The Hawks Nest Lodge is run by the state parks so no luxury or trendy decor here. The rooms are clean and basic and definitely need updating. My room did not include a coffee maker or refrigerator but other members of my family got these items on a slightly higher priced room so make sure you specify you want these amenities. They did have free wi-fi and good TV options so that made up for the spartan room. Despite the deficiencies it's a worthwhile option because the views of the gorge are lovely. There are also a number of hiking trails that are easily accessible from the hotel as well as a tram and boat rides. It's a great option for a no-frills family trip in a beautiful area and it's a great option for the budget traveler.
