Why am I amazed that the best wifi is always at a small 'mom & pop shop'? Big hotels can't afford to upgrade their service but little motels can? Anyway. Clean room, centrally located, very nice staff. Nice sized room with huge bathroom. Basic motel, not fancy. And they had windows that opened and a screen door. Plus chairs to... More

My husband and I stayed here while in the area for a wedding. The staff was extremely nice, the room was small but very clean and warm. Suited our needs for one night just fine. We would stay here again.

we are a travelling couple who stayed 5 nights at this motel and couldn't get enough of the gorgeous natural scenery all around! the establishment is very family-friendly, and the owners are SO friendly and personable, and you can tell that they are very hands-on with running and maintaining the space. the motel is conveniently located among key tourist attractions...

We stayed at the Hillside Motel in September, just before the autumn colours came out. It's a simple and peaceful place on the road out of Luray. A good base for hikes in the Shenandoah National Park or driving the Skyline Drive along the Blue Ridge mountains. Impeccably clean with old-fashioned but comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms ideal for soaking aching legs... More

Arrived on Sunday 11/2. Found room to be a bit chilly, but the in wall heater worked for the main room, but not the bathroom. The motel is designed for warm weather. Beds were comfortable, but you will hear road noise and the heater. Small sitting area outside door for smoking. Fall decorations on railings were a nice touch. Good... More

Looking for a reasonable place to stay while visiting Luray, VA or Skyline drive, this is for you. Built in I guess the 60's, it still sports the avocado green bathroom and knotty pine walls. But it is neat and clean. There is a pool that was sparkling clear. I would stay here again. If you are looking for a... More

We always stay at Hillside every year when we're in Luray. The owner and staff are so friendly and aim to please. The rooms are very clean and that means a lot to us. They are also pet friendly. It's an older Motel but don't let that fool you. It's small and very quite. I'll take cleanliness any day over... More

We discovered this motel (I would normally stay in hotels, but this was a good choice for Luray) when we found bad reviews for the Days Inn down the road. Hillside is pet-friendly ($15 fee), and we got a spacious room at the last minute for cheaper than anything else we could find in the area. It's a very quick... More

We travelled Skyline Drive with a motorcycle group and stayed here 2 nights. Some rooms are better than others but they all were clean and adequate to our needs. One (minor) down side is each room has a coffee maker with no coffee. I wish they would include the coffee (and sugar & creamers) or remove them from the room.... More

Thanks for choosing us and thanks for the kind words. We hear your recommendation for coffee in the rooms versus just the coffee pot and we'll be looking to make that improvement in 2015! Come back and see us next season and come sooner to enjoy our pool! :) More
