“Christmas at the Park Logan WV”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Tucked into the backroads of a small friendly town is Chief Logan State Park. While we were visiting they were having a light display in the park area - this was one of the most spectacular Christmas light displays I have seen. Several miles of different lighted scenes, for the young and old. There must be a million lights total. The cost is a "donation" and this helps with the electic bill for the lights. The cost must be a thousand dollars a month to keep this display alive. You drive through the park, turn your radio on "their" station and the lights and music put you in a winter wonderland experience.
The HOTEL - WOW - was my first impression. You walk into the lobby and immediately you smell "Christmas" - logs burning in the fireplace, the smell of pine from real greenery, real Christmas trees that are decorated by the staff of the hotel.
You walk into the area that takes you to the rooms and there is a large real tree with a log burning fireplace, wreath over the fireplace and stockings all the way up the stair case banister. Famiies gather around this area, children are looking at the tree and eating candy canes they find nestled in the tree branches. The adults are warming their backs to the fireplace.
The staff was very friendly and the gift shop is like a Christmas country store - with very reasonable prices.
The rooms are typical for a state park room - small, clean, comfortable, and basic.
A short drive down the hill takes you to the recreation center, swimming pool and workout equipment - you could also walk there if it was warm.
The only negative thing I can say is about the restaurant that is in the lodge area. The lunch time buffet - there were no choices except spaghetti/salad/green beans/dessert - thats it - no menu and nothing else on the buffet. We certainly didn't go hungry, but the restaurant didn't meet our expectations compared to the rest of this beautiful hotel. We found other places to eat in the down of Logan - a 'drive-in' called Parkway, a bakery called Nu'era, other places to eat that were wonderful.
We will return (maybe each Christmas holiday) to this little winter wonderland that features the smell of pine and the twinkle of lights.

From the start, it was a pleasure to book on-lin, check-in, and stay at the Chief Logan Lodge. It is decorated nicely for Christmas! Our king room was large, clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean! Thank you! We were not used to the type of shower head they have, but it got the job done. Plenty of hot water, but the spray was misty, not like a regular spray. Not a big deal to us. We headed down for dinner, and found the restaurant closed due to water problems. We were disappointed, again, not a big deal to us. The location is really nice, it's sourrounded by the beauty of nature and hills. These hills are so beautiful and in the morning, the sky was beautiful and the air was crisp and clean. Very nice! We will definately stay here again when we return to visit WV! By the way, the front desk ladies were very friendly and helpful.

Last trip to Logan for a visit to Hatfield McCoy Trails we camped. This trip we decided to upgrade the accomodations.The hotel is clean, comfortable affordable and has some decent amenities for the area and the price. After a day on the trails we were able to clean up and relax in the hot tub. Could have gone to the exercise room but too tired for that. Before leaving in the morning we ate at the breakfast bar which was passable as it was included in the rate.

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere, and if you're used to city amenities your only solace is a Walmart nearby. The rooms were fine and the scenery is beautiful. But the food was horrible. Their duluxe breakfast consists of frozen omelets you have to nuke and biscuits and gravy. The restaurant closes at 9pm, and even though we arrived shortly before 9, they wouldn't seat us. Even though we said we were on the road all day. They told us they could direct us to restaurants or delivery menus. I was horrified. Don't expect quality hospitality here.

Used to be excellent. IS starting to look rundown. Employees were rude the last time we went. Flat screen tvs in rooms. No cell service in our room. Wi- Fi was out when we were there too. Free breakfast includes, bagels, biscuits and gravy, cereals, breads, fruit, coffee, juice and milk. Indoor pool and exercise room. Also has a whirlpool. Decor is gorgeous, looks like a high dollar lodge.

Room Tip: Rooms on back of building facing highway have cell service.

Attended a conference that was taking place here. My room had been booked for me by someone else. I was extremely pleased when I walked in. Had to pinch myself the be sure that I wasn't sleepwalking! Beautifully appointed room with a fireplace, no less. Very comfortable, very clean. Very large. The bathroom was amazing! It was a delightful place to stay. Had difficulty with the wi-fi, it did not work very well for me.

Since I was there on business, our meals were planned and organized, except for breakfast. The food was adequate, edible. I did not try out any restaurant service. All in all a nice place to stay. If I as in the area again I would go back.
