It was nice to find a quiet, comfy motel without all the frills that don't really matter. Room was clean, quiet, and comfy. Big bathroom and nice flat screen TV. Owners very friendly and helpful. No phone in room so bring your cell.

The location of this motel and the very reasonable price sold it for us. I read the reviews before I booked and found that they were right. It is a motel, so don't expect anything fancy. It is clean and comfortable. The furniture is retro, just like grandma liked it and I liked it. We came for 5 days, my... More

Overall we would suggest this motel to our friends & family. The staff was amazing & very accommodating! I would be aware that they do close the office at night so they need to know if you are going to coming in after 9pm. The room was extremely clean & we'll stocked each day. The location is perfect for getting... More

Enjoyed our visit to the Hillside Motel. Loved the pine accents, old screen door, front porch, and retro furniture. Felt like I was a kid on vacation again! The motel is very close to the mid entrance to Skyline Drive. We enjoyed a beautiful mid-week drive/hike on the AT. Oh, and they're pet friendly!

we spent two nights at this little hotel. It was quite nice for the price. A good comfortable place to sleep. and just 5 miles from the Thornton Gap entrance/exit of the Skyline Drive. I would recommend this hotel. And it is dog friendly too!

We had a King room that was large with flat screen TV, microwave and fridge. Even a table w/chairs for dining. Bed was a bit hard for my taste, but hubby said was fine for him. Bathroom was large with closet and plenty of towels. Lots of hot water and shower was great. The room was incredibly fresh and clean.... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first time. It's a great location, with beautiful views. Conveniently located between Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns. The owners are very nice and the rooms are so clean. They have everything you need (microwave, mini fridge, satellite tv). I would highly recommend this motel to anyone in the area.

We were there for two nights. Lady in office was very nice. Stayed in Rm 17. Very large bathroom for a motel! People next to us had two dogs and several young children. Never heard them through the walls. Would stay there again. Wifi was only one bar so it didn't work.

Pleasantly surprised by my stay here. Don't let the "Bates Motel" type sign fool you. My rating is based on what this place is - a motel in the middle of nowhere. However, the rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. The bathroom was clean with a good working shower, and there were plenty of towels. The wifi was existent, but... More
