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...

Stayed on the gorge side of the lodge and the view from our balcony was spectacular. The staff was outstanding and the room was clean and bright. The breakfast was definitely continental with only cereal and toast and cakes. But the views with breakfast were well worth the lack of choices. Only some rooms have microwaves and refrigerators.

The HNSP Lodge is conveniently located to all the New River Gorge activities. We requested "canyon view" and were not disappointed. We had a balcony to sit on and watch the trains pass down in the gorge each afternoon. The nightly charge was a bargain and the room was very clean. The charge included a continental breakfast at the lodge's...

This is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you like breath taking views of the mountain. Close by is a trail to really get a birds eye view of the valley. The beauty in the park and at the resort are amazing. If you want to feel close to nature this is a great place for you. It is...

From the outside, the lodge looks a little run down but once you get inside, it's actually very nice. We stayed in a corner suite with a great view of the canyon. It was very clean and cute. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay again.

We booked one night, the room was very nice with a fantastic view of the gorge. We took the tram down to the jetboat and enjoyed the views and the jetboat captain was very entertaining. Nice trails on the property with breathtaking views.
