We stayed in the Mountain Creek Lodge at the bottom of the mountain. There is an aerial tram to take you to the bottom. The food in the Mountain Creek Restaurant is excellent. I wish they served breakfast. We rode the tram up to McKeever lodge for breakfast - fairly ordinary food on the breakfast buffet and since we don't... More

Our check-in clerk was very friendly and helpful and gave us a senior discount. We stayed two nights at the Mt. Creek Lodge at the bottom of their gondola ride. If you have trouble walking or climbing stairs, I would not recommend the Mt. Creek Lodge. The ride down in the 4-person gondola was a thrilling way to start our... More

We stayed in Mountain Creek Lodge, and we knew the rooms in Mountain Creek would have a refrigerator and a microwave. After bringing our luggage down the tram, we made an extra trip to bring to contents of a cooler from the car. We made simple breakfasts (oatmeal with pre-cooked sausage, scrambled eggs with cheese) and ate them on the... More

When i heard we were having a family reunion here i was a little put off by the photos online of the resort as a whole. Once we arrived I soon realized that it is run by good hard working people and is well maintained considering its age. The checkin process was simple and quickly as well as insightful. The... More

We stayed one night on way to Richmond va. Called hotel directly and asked for room with gorge view. Room was clean with great view. Also stated we planned to take the cable car to the restaurant at the bottom for dinner. When we arrived we found out the tram was down for scheduled work, wish we had been informed.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Mountain Creek Lodge at the bottom of the gorge. The scenery was great, the service generally good, and the room was fine. There is a lot to do in the area (we really liked the hiking trails and wildlife). But there was a big disappointment for us. There is no food service during... More

We stayed here as a close getaway during the week of July 4th. Although the rooms were a bit small, and the rooms and property were a bit outdated, the property was clean and the balcony view made up for the "tiredness" of the property. There was plenty to do here with our family: hike, take the sky tram down... More

We have been coming very years now for a family reunion. Unfortunately, this year was not an ideal stay. The air conditioner was broken for almost the entire trip - over the July 4th holiday. One of the room doors kept breaking and the door had to be taken off the hinges to gain entry. The handicap lift broke and... More

The view is breath taking. The hotel is outdated. Needs new carpet, new beds and bedding, new towels, and spells like old mold. There were bugs in the bathroom. The sliding glass doors and windows hadn't been cleaned in a while, it had hand prints all over them. The food is way over priced and not very good. Staff was... More

We come here every other year for a family reunion. The lodge rooms remind me of the old Holiday Inns of my youth. 2 beds a TV and a bathroom. Nothing more nothing less. The lodge is dated to say the least but you come to expect that at most of these state and national parks. The park itself is... More
