The hotel room was pleasant, clean and convenient. We were in the lodge next to the restaurant. The food was delicious all 3 meals and the views were good even in the rain! We were able to get in a short hike up Stonyman mountain before leaving too!

We have stayed at the Skyland Resort many times over the span of nearly 50 years and have never had as bad an experience as what we went through during our recent stay in June. We had booked a "Preferred Room" months before. Upon arrival, we were assigned to Room #72 in the "Shenandoah" unit. We are used to and comfortable with "rustic," but we were horrified to find this room dirty, smelly, hot and in a state of disrepair. There was an A/C that was running, but it was not cooling the room--it was very loud and making sounds that alarmingly sounded like electrical sparking. Below the A/C was a rotten wood panel and on the floor below that was a large quantity of black mold. There were centipedes crawling around on the floor, and the room was generally dirty and the windows filthy. The only window that even could be opened to cool the room off was in the door and needed to be propped up with something to keep it open. The room also appeared to have been shortchanged in towels and other basic amenities. In short, it was a $185 per night dump. When I called the front desk to complain, they apologized for the "mixup" (mixup???) and moved us to another room in the "Laurel" unit. That room was very nice and much more in keeping with what we had come to expect with rooms at Skyland. To their credit, the front desk staff were accommodating and saved our stay from being a complete nightmare. They also said the original room would be taken out of service until the problems could be remedied. For the sake of future travelers, I certainly hope so...

We were in Shenandoah NP in June 2022. We stayed 2 nights at Big Meadow Lodge and 1 night at Skyland. Skyland was FANTASTIC. Newly remodeled beautiful room with a nice balcony with chairs. Big Meadow has definitely gone down hill. It has always been rustic but is now bordering on run down and disgusting. Skyland is where we will be staying from now on.

The rooms are pretty poor and shabby even if you are expecting 'rustic.' This is nothing like the lodges at Yosemite and Glacier parks which have a much higher-end vibe and comfy common areas to socialize. The bar area is dark, bland, uninviting and uncomfortable. The dining room has spectacular floor to ceiling windows with unmatched views - it could be great but the interior is like a school lunchroom with food to match.

There was a major disconnect in communication regarding notifications at the park entrance gate stating that there were vacancies at both lodges. This resulted in us having to backtrack to book a room for the night. However, everything ended with a very enjoyable stay, including a pretty good meal at the restaurant on site.

There are very few options for lodging in the Shenandoah National Park area. And, the options that are available require driving down out of the park. During national park visits, we generally prefer to stay in the park to enjoy the quiet that descends after day visitors depart. The only complaint is that noise from neighboring "cabins" can easily be heard through the walls.

The sprawling resort offers stunning views. Our room was rustic but clean and the king sized bed was oh so comfy. We subtracted a star because of the late night visit of a mouse in our room! Accommodations show their age and are rustic, walls are thin, and there was just enough of a gap under the door for "visitors." Restaurant at the lodge offers a good variety on the menu and service was polite and efficient.

This was a typical national park motel. It was comfortable and of course the location was great. Front desk staff was very nice. Bathroom could be a little cleaner and the shower drained very slow (room 1)

Beautiful view, lovely setting, numerous hiking trails start there. Appalachian trail runs right by, we would recommend walking north for a wider path and easy access to The stony man summit loop hike, which was about 20 minutes each direction and really stunning at the summit. There is a nice outdoor patio outside the taproom where draft beer is served. The food in the dining room was quite good, we enjoyed the vegetarian lentil chili, the trout, the chicken. We had upgraded to a premium room, which had a comfortable bed, nice balcony, but realistically was an upgraded motel room. Basic, but all about the view. When we checked in, they told us that we should have called in advance if we wanted to request a room with a view. Not sure why they offer a premium rooms without a view. Would definitely recommend people call ahead to request an upper floor room, with a view. Destination electric vehicle charger was free, two available. No pool, no refrigerators in the rooms. Ice machine on premises. Would definitely recommend given location and for an overnight along skyline drive, we enjoyed this a lot.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in June. Overall the experience was acceptable but not what was expected after viewing their website. I booked a premium room with 2 doubles based on the beautiful picture shown of the room with view from the balcony. What we had was far from this. It was ground level with no view at all, only trees. I feel deceived, as there may be only a few view rooms as shown. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable, but VERY disappointing. The response to our request to move was unworkable for our schedule. The worst part of our stay occurred the second night when our phones awoke us at midnight with an emergency TORNADO warning, to take shelter immediately. A look at the radar confirmed it heading right for us. I called the front desk to ask about shelters, but NO ONE ANSWERED THE PHONE. I then called the office at Big Meadows Lodge and was told there was a basement at the office building, but it would be locked. She did tell me that a tornado was unlikely to hit on the mountain, which was reassuring. Park emergency services operator also had no idea what we should do. Fortunately, nothing but a severe storm occurred. But the lack of any response from Skyland lodge was horrifying. I would NEVER advise anyone to stay here, but a visit to the main building would be nice for the views there. Service in the restaurant was great, but the food was mediocre at best.
