“A fine establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2004

I was married at the Mimslyn and spent two nights there, as did most of my family. I found the entire Inn, from the dining room to the suites, charming. Another visitor mentioned the door keys- they were in the midst of changing all the locks when we arrived. The staff was nothing but friendly, kind, courteous, accommodating and understanding. Love that southern hospitality!

the grand old mimslyn inn is not so grand as of the first week of may 2003. we had reservations for two nights and cancelled within 10 minutes of arrival.the rooms were musty smelling and we found out that every key unlocked every room. when we confronted the manager she told us that she knew of the problem but couldn't elaberate. well, that's when we checked out.

When I made a reservation for a two-night stay, I was told there would be an evening event one night and so dinner would be served in a different location. Little did I know that this would translate into late-night parties two nights in a row...we were told, "Well, we told you there was an event when you made the reservation." In the end, we had to sleep with the bathroom fan on to block the noise. The second night, we were turned away from dinner after we arrived at 8:29; although the door to the restaurant was open and others were enjoying their meal, we were told that the kitchen closed at 8:30 and therefore we could not stay. Front desk staff when we checked out didn't seem particularly bothered by either of these experiences. I consider myself a pretty easy-to-please traveler, but the customer service at the Mimslyn was really a disappointment.

We just completed a 2-week trip stopping at a different place almost every night. I had to come back and write about the Mymslyn Inn first as it was definitely the best experience we had on our journey! Although there is work to do and work underway to reneovate this grand inn it was gorgeous and the staff was wonderful. On a Thursday night we had the place about to ourselves since thier main business is weddings and conventions. The front porch is a great place to relax and enjoy evening drinks or morning cofee. Our total bill was a little over $100 and INCLUDED our 2 tickets to Luray Caverns, (a value of $32), AS WELl AS a complete, "off the menu" breakfast in the luxurious dining room. The entrance to Luray is about 2 blocks away and an entrance to Skyline Drive is about 10-15 minutes away. I highly recommend this experience!!!!
