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

What a wonderful Inn with views all around! The Inn was perfectly decorated and every comfort possible! The room was extremely comfortable, and our view was spectacular! The staff was there to make your every need met with such enthusiasm and excellence! We especially enjoyed the pool area and had the area to ourselves most of the time. All and... More

We stayed at the Mimslin Inn august 7&8 2014. It was our first visit and we both loved it. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. The porch is large and wonderful, with half set for dining (all 3 meals) and the other side for sitting and rocking. We dined at both restaurants and had outstanding service and very... More

This was our first trip to the Mimslyn, and we couldn't have been more pleased. Paul, Brenda, and Patrick were so pleasant and attentive. Yes, the room and bath were cozy, but the hotel overall is so quaint that a little coziness was not an issue. Breakfast in Circa '31 was a real treat and we enjoyed our dinner, and... More

This is was our third stay at the Mimslyn Inn. (I'm sorry, I forgot to update my last review. Our stay was great the last time after having a rocky interaction prior to our arrival.) I received an email in advance of our stay, which was new. It is a nice touch. We booked a suite for two nights for... More

Tonight we dined outside where we were served by a young lady named Rachel and a man named Alex. Both restaurants were incredibly busy, and there seemed to be only two - three servers out on the patio. Rachel was exceptional. Though we could tell she was incredibly busy, she was very attentive and polite. She still managed to ask... More

We needed a hotel in the area for one night and the Mimslyn, with a Groupon deal was fine. The hotel staff were charming, helpful and fun! The Groupon room, although small, was clean and decorated in standard reproduction old Americana. The bathroom, quite small (only had amenities for one although we booked a standard double.) The pool is very... More

Room was very comfortable, we should have stayed another day but had to go for other engagements. Visit to Luray caverns was very... More

Second visit here. Great place to stay with kids. Had large room with king size bed and sofa bed. Nice pool and hot tub. Lots of space for kids to run around. Friendly and helpful staff. Only slight negative was very slow and expensive room service.

I've stayed at other locations in Luray, but this is by far the best. I'm a native resident that moved away but return often. Annually, I return to celebrate a reunion that was started by my mother and her friends. It dates back to when I was a toddler. The Mimslyn has hosted our dinner dance on some occasions but... More
