Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Rooms were pretty nice, ours had a fireplace and tv. Bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub which was kind of gross, we turned the jets on and brown chunks game out, as if water and who knows what else sat in there forever. We didn't get to enjoy the jets which was disappointing. Overall it... More

What a beautiful place. I would stay there again if visiting the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The dining room was so elegant. My favorite place was on the big front porch sitting on a glider chair overlooking the mountains. It is hands down the best place to stay in Luray.

We stopped here while touring the Shenandoah Valley without a reservation and what a pleasant surprise. The entire staff was so attentive. We were given a nice cornet room with a good view and very well appointed. The garden was so relaxing in a rocking chair with a good glass of bourbon. The front porch offers rockers with a view...

After driving on the Skyline Drive, dusk arrived and we decided to leave the Skyline and find a place to stay overnight. The town we entered, Luray, has a few options that are uninspiring, but then we drove by this lovely inn on a hill that literally and figuratively was above the rest in the vicinity. The Mimslyn Inn may... More

Life at a gracious lower pace awaits the traveler who will venture 15 miles off the interstate. Wonderful front porch with big-fanny rockers... and even meals may be shared on the porch. Food was wonderful, service exemplary... absolutely no complaints. We happened to stay early in the week when the well known restaurant was surprisingly not open for dinner... but... More

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Mimslyn Inn. It is a beautiful historic property. The room (a Blue Ridge Suite) was fantastic - beautifully decorated, comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Staff were very accommodating and wonderful. I loved the grounds and the 3rd floor Skyline Terrace for relaxing. Wonderful, beautiful hotel!!

We stayed one night during a visit to Luray Caverns and the Skyline Drive. A very attractive hotel in a nice setting in town. Staff was delightful and the facilities were excellent. The old hotel (built 1931) is in excellent condition but the designs of the time left the room with a tiny bathroom and no place to store toiletries.... More

We stayed at the Mimslyn for a quick get-away. This is by far the nicest hotel in the area. The service was amazing at the front desk - very helpful. The room was small but quaint and very comfortable. The hotel has a quiet time from 10PM to 7AM which we appreciated - it was very quiet. We ate at... More

The rooms are very nice and the staff is very friendly. The beds are very comfortable. The only negative was that the bathroom wAs cramped and the toilet was very close to bath tub. The hotel had a continental breakfast they offered which was a surprise since nothing was listed about that in reviews read.

We stayed at the Mimslyn Inn because we thought it was the best hotel in Luray. Maybe it is but it was by far and away the hotel we liked the least of the places we visited during a week of traveling around Virginia and Pennsylvania. First the pros - The hotel was a majestic old building on the top... More
