We paid $100 for one nite with two full beds and a wonderful view of trees and canyon. Very quiet. There is a restaurant on site called the Smoky Grill which is a bit pricey. The room is small but clean and adequate. The park is beautiful with trails, a petting zoo and, of course, the falls.

Old style accommodation, in need of refurbishment. Great location. Great view on canyon side otherwise you will be overlooking carpark. Restaurant closes at 8pm which is far too early as there is nothing to do afterwards. Breakfast not included and is average $10 each. Very thin walls you can hear everything. Luckily we didn't need AC as it was noisy... More

Shame on you West Virginia. Blackwater falls is such a beautiful place that we enjoyed greatly. The lodge is located with a wonderful view but this older resort is poorly maintained. Wallpaper hanging loose, paint peeling, mold in bathroom corner are some of the reasons. I would like say our bed was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly... More

Old lodge that has been maintained well. Rooms are clean, neat, and comfortable. Rates are reasonable. Lodge has good restaurant with good, affordable food. Breakfast buffet is good. Back of lodge has great view of Blackwater river canyon. Spent 2 beautiful, cool, evenings, sitting out back watching the sun go down over the mountains. Very big & spacious lodge.

When I reviewed the state park, I thought we had enough for two days of activities, but no way! There is basically one small waterfall and one small hike. The lake was small and gross. I booked the hotel as I thought it'd be good to get a view and watch the sunset and other ideas in the reviews. NOT!... More

The views from the back of the lodge are fantastic. Great view of the gorge.The night sky was unbelievable. Easy access to hiking and a short drive to the falls. The rooms were a bit dated but very comfortable and clean. Staff was wonderful.A very relaxing place to stay. Restaurants in Davis and Thomas within a ten minute drive.

As in previous reviews noted, the Lodge is "old fashioned" and lacks some updated amenities. However, this is the 4th time I've stayed in the lodge in the past 40 years and it still is basically, a simple, charming place to stay in a state park. We spent most of the time hiking and enjoying the beauty of nature. The... More

I recently stayed at the lodge for 4 nights. Despite reviews saying the lodge was outdated, my husband and I found it perfect for out trip/needs. The room was large enough with a comfortable bed (with new/updated bedding) and decent sized bathroom. The views from the lodge are beautiful, and it makes the perfect home base for exploring the park.... More

So we stayed in the lodge, family of 4 w two teenagers and got a suite - plenty large for us. The lodge is old and lacks some updates but we found that to add to its charm. It has a large family room, a large game room, a nice patio, a restaurant, works room plus a small (tiny) indoor... More

We were looking for a cottage but ended up staying in the Lodge. We were beyond impressed and it certainly exceeded our expectations. Yes, the Lodge is old, but that is a lot of the charm. It has been updated sufficiently. The location is spectacular, situated at the top of the mountain. It is very clean, the bed comfortable and... More
