Good location, as the motel is close to both Shenandoah national park and Luray Caverns. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The pool is good sized for the size of the property. They have outside tables and chairs along with a fire pit. The only complaint was that the wifi wasn't that great it kept dropping the connection but I... More

Clean, comfortable room. The beds were comfortable and the shower was a strong jet of hot water. Very friendly staff that handled my last minute questions promptly and in a very friendly manner. Great price. Just down the road from the caverns.

My family stayed 1 night in this throwback motel and had a short but sweet stay. The ladies who checked us in were so friendly and chatty. It set the tone for a wonderful stay! We had rooms 13, 14 & 15. The rooms were extremely clean...I mean they take it seriously here! Each room was spacious with the bathrooms... More

Booked this motel for 1 night after visiting Shenandoah and Skyline Drive as we wanted to see Luray Caverns. We booked a room with a king size bed. The room was nice and clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom is very roomy and also very clean. Price was reasonable. There was a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. No breakfast... More

Just spent Friday and Saturday night at the Hillside Motel and was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it! I've stayed at other hotels when visiting Luray but this is by far my favorite! The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was always available to help with more towels, etc. The pool is very clean and the views... More

This is a no-frills motel, but the room was clean, the staff were friendly and it had a mciro wave and fridge, but no breakfast. We slept well considering most of the other rooms were taken by (very friendly) bikers on a road trip. Perhaps a little overpriced for what is on offer.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Hillside Motel in Luray, Virginia. Unfortunately we don't serve breakfast as we don't quite have the facilities to manage that yet (maybe one day). We reference a lot of our guest to the Brookside Restaurant which is about one mile from the motel for breakfast and dinner. We... More

Great location, as the motel is very close to Shenandoah national park. The rooms were clean, spacious, and had homey feel. Beautiful sitting outside and enjoying the scenery and quiet. My only major complaint is we booked for 2 nights but they only had us down for 1 so we had to go to different motel for the second night.
