This cute little motel is a mom & pop motel. The people are so friendly, it felt like staying with family. My daughter and I stayed two nights and visited Luray Caverns and Skyline Drive. The motel isn't fancy, but it's very clean and comfortable and has a nice pool. It's right off the highway, but the traffic was minimal... More

We stayed here one night and found the 'mom & pop' atmosphere of the place quite charming. We only dealt with the staff on check-in and she was very nice and helpful. Left early the following morning with the ease of a key drop off. The room we had was basic but very clean, had good wi-fi, and the only... More

Talk about felling at home, away from home... this place has it all. Views, clean rooms and friendly staff. We enjoyed our night stay and would definitely return. Would recommend some upgrading, which the 3rd generation owner is working on. They updated the swimming pool last year and starting on some for this year. I would suggest a firmer mattress... More

Stayed at Hillside two nights while hiking in Shenandoah Nat. Park. Chose the place based on reviews, bonus is it is pet friendly - we had two small dogs with us. Owners were nice, pleasant folks. Check-in a breeze and our room was very clean and comfortable. No problems with the pets and we had everything we needed. A bit... More

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 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
