“Conveniently located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We were looking for a place to stay that was convenient for a weekend of caving, rappelling and whitewater rafting at Ohiopyle State Park and Laurel Caverns. The Lodge at Chalk HIll fit the bill nicely. The rooms were clean and roomy enough with a small balcony that came in handy for laying out wet clothes to dry. There was also a microwave and mini-fridge in the room which was convenient. The motel also served a continental breakfast consisting of cereals, pastries, breads and fruit in the lodge which was a bonus. The only drawback was that the refrigerator in our room was a bit noisy. Since I was not used to the sound of it, I had a hard time getting to sleep.

Room Tip: We were looking someplace to stay that was within easy driving distance of both Ohiopyle State Park...

Clean and basic hotel room. Liked the decks overlooking the lake. The breakfast was basic but good. Simply OJ, Milk, Coffee, Tea, Toast, English Muffins, Bagels, Cereal, very clean and staff very friendly. Husband took business call on the deck at the main lodge early in the morning and enjoyed the quiet and outside.

No coffee maker in room - not a problem if you are aware of it and prepared to walk to main lodge. They did have fridge in room and hair dryer which was an older style but worked well. Water pressure low but enough hot water.

Very good value. Also fun to see many of us on the rafting trip stayed at this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for lake views if you have time to sit out and watch the ducks or stars.

Overpriced for the state of the rooms / grounds. Back deck patio in disrepair, patio furniture old and moldy. Shower no power. A/C blows directly on the person sleeping near the back patio. Not sure if our room was worse because of being so far from the lake. On the plus side, the bed was firm. Location is the only thing in their favor with Falling Water and Ohiopyle both nearby.

Room Tip: If you must, try to stay closer to the Lake in hopes they have updated those rooms.

We stayed two nights, June 16 and June 17, 2013. The location is perfect for rafting in Ohiopyle State Park or visiting Fallingwater. The rooms are smaller than a usual 2-bed hotel room, but the bathroom was recently updated and clean. We heard no noise in the evenings. The property includes a lake and large green spaces. Breakfast is very sparse, with only cereal, bread, bananas, milk, and coffee. The first morning, we were the only guests at breakfast. Many of the other units appear to be under renovation.

The Lodge at Chalk Hill doesn't make a great first impression. When we approached our room, it felt like we were going into a storage shed, because the threshold of the doorway is about 8 inches off the ground. It's a big step up, and I don't know if they have rooms with a ramp for wheelchairs; all the rooms in our section had that same raised doorway.
Our room did not have a usable hairdryer. It had the remnants of some ancient 70s-style dryer attached to the wall, but the wires were cut. Air-drying one's hair is an option in the summer, but with snow still on the ground there, I would have much preferred a working hairdryer.
If you are coming to visit Fallingwater, you'd be better off staying in Pittsburgh and making the hour drive in the morning, both for better lodgings and because there is absolutely nothing to do in the evening. Even the convenience store across the street closed before dark!

Room Tip: Stay in Pittsburgh, or splurge on a room at Nemacolin Woodlands.

We recently stayed here on a whim. The room we stayed in was recently renovated (we were actually the first ones to stay here after the renovation, according to the front desk). It had a great view of the pond and it was pretty much centric to many attractions. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean and the unit was pretty easy to find. Will definitely come back when it's warmer!

Had a wonderful stay on here on October 19 and 20. All the units have new siding and roofs and it looks like they are beginning interior renovations in the higher number buildings. I am a frequent flyer at Chalk Hill and have always found it a great value. If you’re looking for a modern hotel…look elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a comfortable, clean nostalgic motel setup this is the place for you.
