We were mainly coming Luray to do some hiking in the national park. We came into town with the plan to find a budget hotel, only criteria was: wireless internet, and clean. As we came down Main St, we saw the Mimslyn on the hill, and immediately felt it was WAY out of our price range. The tall white columns gave a really elegant appearance. Well, as we were doing a bit of an internet search, we found they had rooms starting at ~$130! I called, and found that we could get a queen "historic" room, and they gave a AAA discount.
The inside was as elegant as the outside. The lobby and stairway are beautiful and well decorated. The staff was fantastic, and very courteous. The room was small, but very nicely decorated, and the bed was fantastically comfy. They have a nice little lawn behind, with shrubs and benches for private sitting, as well as a open terrace on the top floor, connected with a very pretty and pleasant sitting room for reading or visiting. There is an outdoor pool and hot tub, and a small but well equipped workout room on the lower level.
They had a delicious breakfast buffet. The view of the mountains is priceless.
I would recommend this hotel.
