Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Check in at the separate office as you enter the property, then drive a short distance to the hotel entrance. This maybe a problem for those who wish to have an office staff in the hotel. There is a phone in each room.
The room had two beds, six drawer dresser and an open closet with sufficient wooden hangers. The bathroom has a bath/shower with a separate sink and vanity outside the door.
Being away from the highways it is very quiet. There are plenty trails to hike, a large pond and a disc golf course on site. Down the road, a mile or so, is a distillery, restaurant. In the other direction, 3-4 miles, is the city of Ripley.

I stayed in the Hope Lodge (similar to a motel) and the room was very musty and moldy smelling. Over the five days I was there it didn't improve. I heard others complaining of same. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and it all felt very safe. Coffee in the rooms was great!

Meals at the dining hall were all tasty and plentiful and they accommodated vegetarians very well. All the staff were friendly.

The class room that I used while there was also moldy. The swimming pool had closed early for the season and the water was a bright green. The tennis courts were not usable. There was no canoeing or kayaking.

This is basically a room with a bed and TV and a nice view of the grounds. There is a small lounge area and aging picnic table outside. The city of Ripley is a 5 minute drive and then some to the shopping areas.
The room does need to upgrade its dull lighting and a few more outlets. You may want to bring some brighter 100w equivalent LED bulbs and an extension chord with you. No refrigerator or microwave. WIFI is slow.
The grounds are well kept with trails and a fishing pond.

My room in Holt Lodge, at Cedar Lakes Conference Center, resembled a standard motel room; however, it did not have a microwave oven or refrigerator. (When classes are held at Cedar Lakes, visitors can eat in the dining hall.) My room had a landline telephone, and there were telephone directories in the drawer. The Cedar Lakes Conference Center is owned and operated by the West Virginia Department of Agriculture.

As others have said, our housing was in Holt Lodge. A motel like building with no staff onsite. Musty unless running the fairly noisy AC. Comfortable beds. Electric cover missing from wall outlet, not enough lamps or outlets and my lamp fell apart when I turned it off.

There were two large groups here being provided meals and they were the worst meals I have ever been given. There had to be no cooks in the kitchen because everything was prepackaged delivered product that could be boiled or rewarmed. First salad I had was mushy in the middle. The same awful mix of potatoes, carrots and peas was boiled and served to us as a vegetable and used for the soup in the same meal. No salt, spice or seasoning in evidence anywhere. The hard taco shells on the taco bar were rancid. The bean enchiladas were steamed and served without any sauce. To top it off, the Belgian waffles for breakfast were precooked but then held in a sealed pan and were soggy again with no flavor. Brownies were served for dessert at three meals. Nothing had any flavor. Heard they were looking for a "food manager".

We were here for the weekend for a family conference with a mental health organization. A place to stay to walk around lakes, fish, there is a chapel with outdoor seating. Very nice people. Putt putt golf a playground picnic areas. A good day stop as well. Bunkhouses and a lodge that is like a hotel. We ate in the dining hall and the food was good.
