Black Bear Lodge is a quaint little place. Nothing fancy, yet to clean and very convenient to many of the area attractions (Natural Bridge, Nada Tunnel, etc.). The room was small and somewhat dated yet it was very clean and adequate for our needs. No WiFi and no cell service, but who needs it when you’re out hiking and having a great time??

Amazing facility and so cheaply priced. We stayed at the motel/lodge. Everything was clean and room had DirectTV, mini fridge, microwave, coffee, hairdryer, and plenty of towels! Beds were comfortable, though maybe too firm for some. I liked it, but some like softer.

Too small, no table and chairs

Pros: The price and the beds were comfortable
Cons: I think they'd have to rebuild to make the rooms larger.
Location: Beautiful location, very close to Natural Bridge and other attractions.
The room was very small, just room enough for the two beds and a luggage rack, very dark with only one window that looked out over the parking lot. If you are just there to sleep, it would have been fine, the beds were comfortable, everything was clean, plenty of towels and toiletries, but we like to unwind before bed in chairs or on a sofa with a drink and watch some tv, which just wasn't possible in this room. Won't stay here again.
