Old, Worn, tired and over-priced!

This is not a great place to stay - wish it was as the scenery along Skyline Drive is beautiful but two nights here was two nights too long! The Resort is spread out and we found ourselves in a cabin at the very end (Winchester - 191) - needed the car to get back to the Restaurant as it was so far away! The wooden steps leading up to the cabin are old and rickety, the lock on the door difficult to operate and the interior - wish I had something positive to say about that but it failed in every aspect; old, worn, antiquated furniture, the bed was extremely ancient and uncomfortable, the bathroom was antiquated and full of bugs - couldn't even bring ourselves to use it. A rickety shed like-door lead onto a wooden balcony. The air-conditioning units were rusty and noisy, the lighting was extremely poor - but maybe that was a blessing in disguise as you couldn't see the decor! These cabins are in need of a serious up-date - and come with the added insult of an exorbitant nightly charge!

Skyland Lodge at Shenandoah National Park

The Shenandoah National Park is gorge and being to stay right in the middle of it is so convenient. Skyland Lodge has rooms overlooking the mountains. The rooms are basic and clean. The restaurant at the lodge is convenient and the food is good. It is so nice to be able to have a day of hiking and have our room nearby rather than drive the length of Skyline Drive to a hotel. We would go back.

Camping inside for a high price.

We had a 2 night reservation at Big Meadows Lodge. Arrived and were told there was no power (not their fault) and they moved our reservation to Skyland resort. They called us 10 minutes before we arrived and due to bad cell service, we never received the change. We drove back to Skyland lodge. They put us in a king room. Dead millipedes all over the floor and very dirty. We drove back to the office. They put us in a suite. A regular and twin bed. Not ideal for a couple. The rugs were very dirty. Bathroom and bed clean. Found spiders in the bed 2nd day. This is more like camping. Very disappointing for the price. The restaurant was the only high point.

Disappointment with our Accommodations

At almost $200.00 per night (including taxes), one should expect a clean room and better food options than what is currently offered. The room we stayed in had dirt and dust on the floor and the paint was peeling on the ceiling just outside our room (pictures to follow). In addition, I do not think it is much to ask to employ staff who have enthusiasm about the park and at least basic knowledge of birds and wildlife in the area. Case in point: I asked the front desk employee what birds were occupying the nest just outside the office in the overhang. Her response was simply, "I have no idea". And she made no effort to try and find out. Fortunately, the scenery remains unequaled. The current management company, Delaware North, should be held accountable for the staff's education, work habits, and the lack of cleanliness.

Lodging really needs an upgrade

Resort is in a nice setting but the room was awful. Other than the bed, which was comfortable, the room was ancient, the bathroom was pretty gross and the back door slammed open and shut all night because of wind. The view was great and the park like campy feeling were nice but for the money spent, they really need to upgrade the lodging. The dining experiences weren’t much better. There was no grab and go food bc the fridge compresser was broken and the bartender in the tap room was overwhelmed and working too hard. They need more staff
