Spent a night at the Mimslyn Inn on our way to Luray Caverns. We were greeted by their friendly staff the moment we arrived. Checking in was easy. The room, bed, bathroom were perfect and the building itself is beautiful.

If I had any complaint, it was that the meal at the casual restaurant down stairs was just mediocre. The service was very spotty and the food was average.

That being said, I would not hesitate to stay here and we are actually looking forward to our next visit within the next few months. A great getaway from D.C. and it is just over 100 miles away.

booked a night after planning a day in the Luray area, unsure what to expect from the website, however we were pleasantly surprised with an absolute Gem of an Inn in Luray. Great helpful Staff, beautiful Inn!! Quiet room, nicely appointed, convenient to the downtown shops and restuarants. Beautiful inside and out, we had a late dinner in the Speakeasy, (hidden in the basement, a very nice place on it's own with a great staff) and were very pleased with the entertainment that night
nice small gift shop in the lobby with local wines, and local wines (reasonbly priced) in the Speakeasy as well, overall a great stay, highly recommended!!

Room Tip: we had a 'historic' room on the 3rd floor, on the back of the hotel, nice view , great lob...

What a great hotel and fantastic staff. We had a number of rooms booked for a wedding and the staff bent over backwards to see that we were well taken care of. We had booked another venue for the rehearsal dinner and the hotel provided highchairs for three infants without asking for any deposit. This would also be a fantastic location for a vacation to the area, there are number of great things to do and see.

We stayed one night at the Mimslyn Inn on our way to Asheville, NC. This is a beautiful hotel set up high on a hill. The room was lovely and spacious, and the bed very comfortable. We had dinner downstairs at the Speakeasy. It was a fun night with live country rock music and good food. One wonderful touch was the ability to order a delicious packed lunch for our road trip the next day.

Stayed with a Living Social deal and found the hotel to be absolutely beautiful and the staff exceptionally nice. The room was very quiet, and there were lots of great products for shampoo, nails, and lotion in the bathroom. The porch out front is fantastic, the muffins in the morning were tasty, and beers in the Speakeasy downstairs were cheap. Only complaint was that the hammocks out back were a little stretched out. Had a great time!

Spent weekend sharing friends' wedding party. Was treated with the utmost service without feeling like the staff was scripting anything. Very personable atmosphere where no detail was left unattended. The warm, friendly attitude of every staffer I met made me never wanting to leave. Obviously smart management kept the entire weekend smooth, flawless and had me leaving with that once in a lifetime memory. Truly a magnificent operation through and through.

We only live 45 minutes away, but were there to attend a meeting and decided to make it a romantic getaway. The price was right, the inn is beautiful and the service was gracious, especially Paul the Bellman. The room was elegant and the gas fireplace came in handy. Dinner and breakfast were very good--just wish it had been warm enough to lounge around the pool!
