The hotel staff was friendly and helped us find our room. Nice breakfast in the restaurant. My view in my room was amazing. My only down fall was there was no cold water in the faucet and i tried to shower and there was no hot water after 1 min of being in the shower. Other than that the room...

We stopped there for a night. Driving from South US to Canada we wanted a change from on highway motels. For the same price we got to stay in this old but nice hotel. It was about 13 kms off the highway. It was obviously the off season so no one else was their when we arrived. The hotel shows...

We stayed here one night to break our road trip up on December 28th. We arrived in the dark and it had a lovely roaring fire on. We checked into our room which had a valley view, kids loved it as a train line was below. The room was clean had two double beds which were comfy, Fridge and tea...

I wanted to thank the staff for mailing back my favorite pillow that I left behind in my room. This was going the extra mile for me. I will say however that I did not need it b/c the pillows and the bed in my room were the most comfortable I think I've ever had in a hotel. Both my...

This is a quiet place to relax. The room was clean and neat. The bed and bedding were wonderful! Very comfortable. Make sure you get a room on a high level so you have a view. The restaurant was extremely disappointing. I had read a number of reviews that advised against going there, and they were correct. The service was...

We had a great time! Do know though the outdoor pool is only open on summer days. The beds were more like home beds than your average hotel bed! Come on in! You will love it! You will need a strong car engine though, to get up the good ole' WV mountains.

We visited the second week of October. Weather was great. Room accommodations were very nice, very clean. Slept very well! We decided to have supper in the on site restaurant. That's where the bad comes in...they were out of lots of dinner items. Restaurant opened at 4, we were there before 5:30. Out of meatloaf, out of crab cakes. What...

This lodge looks dated but it was very clean and comfortable. The hawks nest is state park is quite small but we were only there 1 night so there was enough time to explore the trails and views. When we returned from our walk in the morning after breakfast we saw 15 Hawks swirling over the hotel. It is great...

So glad we booked a stay at this lodge for our rafting weekend on the Gauley River. We had a beautiful room overlooking the New River. Wonderful hiking trails, really cool tram ride. Clean, spacious, quiet. What more could you ask?

First of all, pay the little bit extra and get the gorge view room. It is absolutely beautiful. The building itself is like many state owned property in need of some repair. Many places the concrete has come off and rebar is showing through (like sitting on patio, look up above you) many of the blocks are discolored. They have...
