The good people of WV could not be nicer; at the lodge or any surrounding venue. The lodge must have been one hoppin joint in the early 70's. By today's, just average standards, these rooms are small, bathrooms tiny, and all very tired. Some may find this quaint, some may find this a dump. All in what one expects for $85 a night.
Cannot argue with the location, views are fantastic. Tram is small and again, either quaint or down right scary. Restaurant is the greatest disappointment. Breakfast buffet might be half of what you might get at a Fairfield or a Hampton. Poor quality and no service whatsoever. Dinner... same... could have sworn they microwaved up Stoffer's and put it on a plate. Some may find perfectly acceptable, we thought exceptionally poor quality and worse value. Great restaurants 20 minutes away over in Fayatteville.
We travel extensively on business and for pleasure, therefore, we stay at a variety of hotels from the Ritz to the Days Inn. Value for dollar is correct measure. This place was not expensive by most measures, but not high on value either. We wanted it to be so much more... unfortunately it was not.
