We have stayed at Hawk's Nest on several occasions in the past year. The lodge is an older, but interesting, building. There are several lounge areas throughout the lodge and its location is its greatest asset. Some updating of the rooms is gradually taking place. Most of the rooms are somewhat small, but the space is adequate. During all of our stays we had a flat screen TV. There is Wi-Fi available in some of the public areas but not in the rooms. We recommend a canyon view room. Some of the rooms do not have elevator access and you must carry your bags up or down the stairs. If this is an issue for you, be sure to inquire about accessibility. During one stay, we had room 320 which is a canyon view room on the walk-in level. Some rooms have in-room coffee pots; others do not. Coffee is available in the main lobby in the mornings. None of the rooms we have had had hairdryers, so bring your own. The contracted restaurant's continental breakfast is pretty sparse. It consists of oatmeal, grits, hard-boiled eggs, pastries and breads and two types of cereal. There is a hot breakfast available, but the one time we ordered it, it was a microwaved plate of breakfast foods, not freshly cooked. We did not eat any other meals at the restaurant. The current vendor is quite disappointing. In the past, the breakfast food at the lodge was quite good. Overall, for the money, Hawk's Nest is a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the West Virginia mountains. The park staff are always friendly and accommodating. All of the rooms we've had were spotlessly clean. It's a great area for hiking, rafting, rock climbing and sightseeing. Don't miss driving down the Fayette Station Road which you can access near the New River Gorge Bridge. What a treat!
