This motel was VERY Clean and it had breath taking views. It was also a plus that the Office staff people were wonderful and inviting. and of course it was close to the caverns. I will definitely be staying here next time I visit!!!

Stayed here recently and must say that it is pretty outdated. However, it was quite cheap due to the fact that our stay occurred during the winter. Definitely more of an apartment feel to it rather than just a motel room. Location is perfect though as Luray Caverns is a very short distance away. All in all, not too bad.

Though the name says motel, its actually an apartment which is not advertised. Having said that, it was ok, nothing great. No utinsils were provided in the apartment and for 4 beds, there is only 1 bathroom which is a let down. Nonetheless, has a good view and was clean for the period that I stayed.

Me and my wife planned to stay for 4 nights but after arriving within the first 5 min we knew we were in trouble. The room had a horrible musty smell, the floors were noisy, the bathroom was small and dirty, we had very low water pressure. The sheets were rough and bed was hard, the tv was an old... More

The location was great for biking in the GW National Forest to Camp Roosevelt and back, and the rooms were reminiscent of yesteryear. While some might fault the amenities as not being up to that of chain hotels in urban areas, the property had a nice pool, kitchen, sunroom/dining area, a quiet room and nice views of the mountains. Since... More

I'll make my review simple: Pros: very close to the Caverns, clean, good price, quiet and nice views of the mountains, close to Walmart if you needed something like I did, as my son got a little sick (not from the motel, ha ha), WiFi worked ok, beds comfortable, employees were nice. Cons: the pool at the West location was... More

I see the mixed reviews of this place and probably fall somewhere in the middle. This hotel is definitely dated and/or 'Vintage' if you like. If you're looking for posh, plush and spotless, keep driving, but if you're looking for a place with a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is extremely close to the Caverns, this might...

If you want a 5-star, drive to DC. This place is a step back into time. Small rooms, tile bath, antique furniture and small beds. However, it is updated beautifully, super clean and you cannot beat the views. My husband and I have traveled the world, Marriott Skymiles, Delta Skymiles, Hilton.. and so on. This was a nice change of... More
