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

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
