The location is fantastic but the place can feel quite tired, dark and not always clean. Cobwebs in rooms, TV room was dirty and smelled musty. With a bit of work this place could be beautiful, but it needs a little investment. We were also a bit surprised that *some* of the staff were a bit unhelpful (and did not... More

Lodge staff was friendly and helpful. Room we stayed in was large with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace and a small private deck off the back side. There was a restaurant and pub in the main lodge building which was very convenient. Food in the restaurant was pricey and nothing to write home about. There was another restaurant near the visitor's... More

We were looking forward to our stay here as we have stayed in lodge's in different national parks. Handicapped-accessible room was very far from the parking area, room was in OK condition. Beds were comfortable but the floor was filthy. White socks turned black on the bottom in about 10 minutes. Front desk was notified, but just said they would... More

Great, is always very pleasant to visit Big Meadows. The rooms are nice and comfortable, the panoramic view is impressive! To be in touch with nature is invigorate and the services goes in line with this concept.

We had low expectations, but were impressed with the accommodations. The pillows, the mattresses, the towels and the cleanliness were the best we've ever seen in a national park. We brought a lot of our own food -- for breakfasts and lunches -- but when we ate in the dining rooms, the food was tasty, though not "amazing" and a... More

Accommodations were adequate, considering being in a national park Required reservations for dinner which was too long a delay. Service and food in tavern were commendable. Sunset and shooting stars were exceptional!! The parkway drive was very enjoyable.

Stayed at the Big Meadows Lodge - friendly staff, delicious food, spectacular scenery, beautiful surroundings/hiking... we will go back! We were in a building a short walk from the main lodge: not fancy but very comfortable room with two queen beds, coffee maker, a/c and good lamps for reading. Lovely white comforters and towels add a luxury touch. Hiking on... More

If you enjoy seeing the beauty of God's creation than you need to visit the Skyline Drive and Big Meadows lodge. The area is replete with wildlife and beautiful native plants. Looking over the deck toward the west and watching the sun setting is always a breathtaking experience. If you visit and don't see deer you are either not looking... More

The staff is welcoming and cheerful. The view from our room was amazing. The food was all delicious and reasonable. The entertainment Saturday night in the tap room was great and family friendly. The lodge is centrally located and would recommend if you have the opportunity to stay, you won't be disappointed!
