    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    The only reason I booked this hotel it had a free breakfast. Well there was no breakfast, not even a coffee. Office was closed at 8am. I booked the room with balcony assuming my room will have its own balcony but it was a long porch charred between 4 rooms with no privacy. Everyone was walking by my room to get to theirs. Had to sleep with ear plugs.

    Not clean enough, not well maintained. Breakfast was very poor

    Very noisy

    The best thing about the lodge is its location; right on the river bank with views of Chimney Rock and within walking distance to the main shops in the town of Chimney Rock. However its location was also one the worst things about the lodge. The main road is less than 50 feet from the room and the traffic noise is terrible! At least every 3rd or 4th vehicle is an over-sized truck with a big engine and tires. The lodge does have rooms downstairs that are below road level and closer to the river that might be quieter, but he floors creak so loudly that I don't know which is worse. There are large gaps below and around the doors that lizards can enter the rooms. The rooms are very small and the entire bathroom is only about 5x5 feet but is clean and has been updated with a tile shower and floor.The bed was extremely comfortable and its best feature.
