The management at the Mimslyn Inn did an incredible job putting together a great Valentines Day event filled with great entertainment, food, and wine. We enjoyed our stay and are considering doing it again next year!

This is a classic Inn that is exceptionally clean and very well run by a highly trained staff. Our experience was one of the best lodging experiences of my life. My granddaughter became ill during the night and the late night clerk was so very kind and accommodating. No paycheck gets the visiting guests that level of care and concern.... More

Went on a weekend in Feb for our babymoon. I booked a special package for winter that included drinks, appetizers, and s'mores by the fire. The hotel was great and the staff very nice. The room was clean and a good size. However, the heating/cooling system would either be too cold or too hot but we lived with it. We... More

We went to the Valentine Frank Sinatra Show, diner, dancing and fun. It was so much fun. Most relaxing room and Hotel atmosphere. Our diner was really fine food, which you can fully expect from the Owners and Staff of this Inn. Great for special occasion, just a get-way or a base for touring the Shenandoah Valley.

My husband and I stayed here just before the Valentine's Day weekend. The hotel is beautiful, close to downtown, the caverns, and Skyline drive. The staff were very friendly and everything is very well kept. The rooms are nice, and we enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I spent Valentine's weekend at the Mimslyn. The hotel itself is quite beautiful. The lobby is elegant and we loved the winding staircase.

Got a great deal for 2 nights through Groupon. Friendly staff, clean room, great bar/ restaurant. Very close to attractions and downtown Luray. Though Luray is a small town we didn't have any trouble finding things to do. Within driving distance to Skyline Drive which is a MUST DO! Stayed in FEB 2013.

This was our first time and we read a lot of reviews, the good and the bad. The hotel is beautiful, we had a great experience. The size of the the room was okay, not too small. No down sides that we could see. Had a great time.

The choices of good hotels in Luray are not extensive so if you are looking for something that feels a little above average then this is probably your only choice. The Mimslyn Inn has an imposing position on a hill that looks over the town of Luray with the mountains in the near distance so the views are decent, if... More
