4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Don't get me wrong. We enjoyed our one night stay. Friendly staff, great view from the front porch, and a good dining experience one the porch. Nothing fancy but somewhat refined. My pulled pork was delicious as was my wife's wrap. Orange creme brulee for dessert. Yum! All of this accompanied by good local wines and hard cider. $60 with... More

This hotel is nice , clean and has an old charm. The rate for a standard room, however, for this part of the America seems unjustified. The hotel does doe not have that extra something or boutique feeling to charge over $230 per night. The fine dining restaurant was not open for dinner and the food and menu at the... More

Sprawling manicured lawns, carefully preserved architecture, and superior customer service makes Mimslynn Inn a hidden treasure in the Shenandoah Valley. In planning my second visit to Luray, VA I was certain that 3+ star hotels were few and far between, as reflected by Expedia and other travel sites; however, a search for deals on Living Social led me to this...

The Mimslyn Inn was very nice. All of the employees were friendly and helpful. We did have ants but we called down to the front desk to get some spray and they were out of ant spray. So they sent someone out to get some. It was nice that you are able to eat there also. Everything was very close... More

We stayed in one of their cottages and just loved it. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We ate dinner and breakfast on the huge front porch at the inn and it was very good. We will definitely stay here again.

It looks like a Southern mansion with the big, boasting columns out front and the massive expanse of a veranda overlooking a circular drive up on the hill! Our room was small but comfortable with average wooden "hotel-like" furniture. Don't be fooled by the labels, all of the "historic rooms" are their basic hotel accommodations, and there is nothing particularly... More

I've stayed here both times that I visited Luray and both experiences were great. The first time was during a sister road trip probably twelve years ago. Tiny room, but we were satisfied. A tiny jail could be seen in the distance from the grounds of the hotel and men in striped outfits were wandering its yard which amused us... More

My fiance and I had a blast staying here back in April. The building is gorgeous and after reading other reviews about the room sizes, we went with the presidential suite. The room was huge and clean. The bathroom was also clean, with a large jetted bathtub. Both restaurants were delicious and reasonably priced. I was expecting the hotel to... More

I stayed at this hotel back in 2010 and just came across it on Tripadvisor. The hotel was memorable so I'm compelled to leave a review even after some time has passed. Was there for a wedding so the stay was short...but it was sweet. The hotel has class and elegance. The service was A+ and the Sunday brunch was... More

The Mimslyn Inn is a terrific place to stay to visit Skyline Drive. We truly enjoyed our visit and the small town of Luray! The restaurant was nice and the bar was good for enjoying a drink and maybe snacks. Sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair enjoying the sunset was truly nice. Very relaxing trip.
