Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I travel a great deal and admittedly have high standards. This hotel barely meets them. It is in a wonderful location, has a nice restaurant, and facilities aren't bad. The rooms are in desperate need of updating. I believe they have attempted some of this updating--flat scree televisions, new furniture, new lighting. However, there remain scratches on the wood paneled walls from the old television sets, the bathrooms look 40 years old, and plaster is falling down from the ceiling. Water pressure in the bathroom is awful and the mattresses are dreadfully uncomfortable. The wireless internet is terribly slow. There aren't really any other better options in the area. The park is beautiful, I just wish the state would put the money into the property.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room overlooking the canyon!

Visiting here after 50 years. Wonderful experience again. Visiting in October makes for a beautiful experience. Make your reservations ahead of time because they fill up fast. Very accommodating to older folks. It is an older lodge but sit is so comfortable and very welcoming. Not overpriced and they certainly could be.

Room Tip: Book early to get canyon view rooms.

We stayed 2 nights in October, the foliage was beautiful. The lodge is a bit dated but still well maintained. We had a room looking toward the gorge. The water went between warm and cool but still managed to get a great shower. The breakfast buffet was very good and a great value.

We spent two days hiking trails going to scenic overlooks, and viewing the famous Blackwater Falls. The fall colors were awesome but the falls and overlooks would be good anytime of the year. There are many areas to stop as you walk and enjoy the scenery. When the weather is right the sunrise and sunsets are unbelievable.
This is a good place for a getaway from the stress of the city. Lots of places to explore nearby for arts and crafts as well as the scenery. this is also a family friendly location.

This would make a great place for a group outing. We have been here a couple of times and enjoyed both stays. Room is comfortable. Plenty of places to roam around. We actually saw a bear and deer on the premises. Check the wildlife sighting clipboard at the front desk. Lots of pictures were taken this trip. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub but they have covered the jets so the hot tub is just that, a hot tub. Exercise room is nice too. Highly recommend.

From the day we checked in everyone was great. The view was beautiful. The waitresses at their restaurant were sooo friendly. Most of the food was good and the coffee was great:) only problem we had was we got a room with two double beds, thank god there were two cause they were more like super singles, we each slept in separate beds:) So be sure to get the queen size unless you like to sleep alone. The small towns nearby were full of things to look at, a few places to eat and people were really friendly. Yes we would definitely go back. Blackwater Falls was beautiful!

I have been visiting Blackwater since I was a kid. Location does not get any better. Yes, the lodge is dated and has limited amenities. If you want an upscale hotel, find a big city. The cabins are great; quiet, secluded and comfortably rustic. Davis is interesting, Thomas is funky, hip and fun. Great old WV boomtowns. Dine in town, lodge restaurant food is ordinary, mostly frozen entrees due to low volume. Great outdoor recreation and fantastic escape from static of daily life.

Room Tip: In lodge, canyon side is a must. Any cabin is great.
