Our last vacation before school begins, got off to a horrible start. We had originally planned on cabin camping at a near by campground. However, when we got there, we were welcomed by a dirty, cockroach infested cabin. Note: this was at 1:30 AM. We began to panic because we had our two children with us and home was 3 hours away. So we got on the internet (on our phone) and found THE NATURAL BRIDGE HOTEL. I called reluctantly at 2:00 AM and spoke with the front desk clerk. We knew on Labor Day weekend there was no way they would have a vacancy. The woman who answered the phone was incredibly helpful. She checked to see if they had a cancellation and the our surprise they did! We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations and WONDERFUL staff. They did inform us that the room we had might not be available for another night and that we would have to call in the morning to see if they had another cancellation. The next morning we called downstairs and they immediately started working on getting us another night. Not only were we able to stay another night but they arranged it so we could stay in the same room.
The location of the hotel is conveniently within walking distance to the Natural Bridge. The only negative as far as the condition of the room is that it was an older room however it was clean and comfortable. We travel on a regular basis and have NEVER found a more HELPFUL, FRIENDLY staff as we did at THE NATURAL BRIDGE HOTEL. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will be returning in a few months. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
