Big Meadows Lodge, Luray
Check in was extremely slow! The line was at least 15 people deep. Rooms were not ready at the 3pm check in time. Service in the restaurant was also slow and the staff looked miserable. No one was smiling!

The service and the staff were great. Our main issue is the conditions of the rooms. Smelled very musty and no ventilation in bathrooms. We understand that these lodges are under the historical registry, but there needs to be some kind of updating done. I felt very uneasy breathing in the room air. Was very musty and mildewy.

Great location with amazing local hikes and scenery. All the staff were helpful and friendly especially in the bar, we really enjoyed the live music in the evening. The lodges needed a little updating but were comfortable and cozy.

Run down
Shenandoah is beautiful but this cabin was run down. There was an ant infestation. There was also no AC or fan in the room, which was not mentioned when I made the reservation. Was woken twice at night by a rodent in the room. Toilet seat was broken. Water was so low flow in the shower I couldn't wash my hair and the tub was insanely slippery. I almost fell multiple times while trying to shower. Won't be staying here ever again.
