I have stay several times and the reason I keep coming back is because they have a monopoly at a choice location. The lodge is dated and the rooms are small and worn out. In my last stay 10/21/13, I was given Cabin # 4a; it was clean but the mattress was worn out; since it is a busy place you are stuck because there are no other cabins readily available. So if you plan to go arrive early so you have an opportunity to inspect the room. The main lodge is attached to some of rooms; avoid the ones above the gift shop since they are close to the kitchen and you will exposed the fans exhaust noise and the aromas extracted infiltrate your space. Also avoid the rooms facing the parking lot; these has seen better days and should really be tear down...they have undergone remodeling but did not help much in upgrading the quality.
The best part is that when you get your bill, you will find a $5.00 Shenandoah Utility fee and a National Park Trust Donation of $1. When I inquired as to the $5.00 the response that it was to pay for the water; what is next? A fee for the electricity and a fee for the pillow? In honesty, when you arrive at the desk there is a sign that mentions the $1 Park Donation fee. You are not asked if you want to donate and the fee is automatically attached to the bill. Although I do not know who gets this fee, I object to have it imposed without consent.
