You're in the middle of a national park, and you pay the location (who is not so exceptional).
We're not sure to want to remain to sleep on the park, and we have not booked in advance (but in the days before we're looking on the web and you had prices starting 130 USD with breakfast).
It was a sunday in the beginning of september, we're not scared to not have availability.
We arrived and we asked the best price: 155 USD without breakfast! As you have free wifi on the lobby, I went to the web and I booked the room at 130 USD with breakfast.
Very not "guest friendly" .
We saw 2 dears close to the buildings.
You pay as a luxurious hotel to sleep in a cheap and old motel! Beds, carpet, bathroom... everything need urgently to be changed!
Restaurant is good, also for dinner and for breakfast.

We have stayed in several national parks hotels in the past, without a doubt the front of house staff here were the least welcoming, and in one case bordered on rude. Although the same could not be said of the restaurant and bar staff who were always friendly and polite.

We stayed in an original cabin. In other parks when we have stayed in the older type of accommodation we have always enjoyed it, they had the feel of the period, whereas this cabin was ok but felt past its best and in need of some care. Also for unknown reasons one day during our stay the cabin was not made up, no big deal but never happened to us in a park's hotel before.

None of this would stop us staying here again because the main reason we choose any national park accommodation is for the location and proximity to the park - and in this respect Big Meadows is as excellent as the others.

Made a last-minute decision to do the Skyline Drive, hike, and spend a weekend there. This lodge was perfect for our purposes. We felt lucky to snatch the last room available, but unfortunately, this was also the least desirable room in the entire lodge (# 23) because it is the only one situated above the kitchen with its very noisy exhaust. The room was clean and simple.
Dinner was excellent (especially the perfectly prepared salmon on corn grits), the bread was served hot, and the Virginia wines good and reasonable.
Service was very friendly and helpful.
Great area for hiking.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room with a view on the FAR side from the kitchen.

The Lodge at Big Meadows has the feel of a rustic old mountain lodge while offering comfortable accomodataions. Wow, the menu has changed!! The choices are creative and varied. The food is delicious and beautifully presented.

Room Tip: be sure to ask for a view

Coming back from W.Va. decided to stop at Big Meadows. Trip was fantastic. Great views and relaxing drive. Lodge is great. Very comfortable. Rooms were simple and clean. Restaurant was fine as was the Tap Room. Everyone was courteous and helpful. Enjoyed the fresh air, great view and quiet. Will definitely come back and hope to get some time to roam around the park
