Room was clean, but very dated. Poor window coverings, sagging on the rod and did not darken the room well enough. Comfortable bed, but a very loud air conditioner unit that did not have a fan adjustment.

It is a clean, comfortable and convenient place to stay. Our room was huge. It was dated but very clean. Our king bed was comfortable. There was a storm during the night. A clean towel was on our motorcycle placed there by staff to dry it off, such a nice gesture!

It is an older inn but our room was very clean. We were there two nights with plans to spend day at LuRay Caverns. There was no pool or other amenities. We checked with other hotels but decided to try the older inn. When we got to LuRay we had a big surprise--all of the hotels were older (didn't find... More

For a basic motel, this was fine. The room was clean but the decor was not well planned. The only thing the bedspread, drapes, and carpet had in common was that they were in the same room. There was a mini fridge and microwave but no coffee maker or blow dryer. I did like the mountain view with the fireflies... More

My initial thought upon arrival was that there must be a huge range of rooms available! Our room was merely a typical motel room- clean, basic bed and TV, couple of chairs, dresse and lamps. Yes there was wifi, a mini fridge and cable but those were the highlights on the amenity front. The room was clean and I did... More

It is just a typical, average hotel. It's in a nice location and is fine if you're simply looking for a place to sleep. The service was quick, friendly, and easy going. No problems with parking or crowds. Quick drive away from Luray Caverns. However, small shower.

I called at 10pm to confirm and pay for a booking I made through expedia, and whomever answered said they're not taking calls or bookings right now as it's "after hours." Okay then.... guess I'll cancel the reservation then! Won't even help potential customers? Only call during business hours if you're trying to make a booking.

The room was clean. The owner was very nice. He gave my husband a towel to clean our motorcycle. He also gave extra towels for us. I would stay here again. It is less than a mile from the Luray Cavern. Also places to eat,do laundry, and stores. The owner was also very helpful in giving us directions to a... More
