En route to Asheville from New York, we needed a place to stay mid-way and close to Skyline Drive. Hillside Motel fit the bill perfectly. Though the motel was closing the next day (10/30), the owner was incredibly pleasant and helpful - we saw that one of the bulbs in our room was out, went out to office to mention... More

This is a family owned motel that has aged quite a bit. The rooms are large, but most are connected by doors which made it noisy. Every staff person we encountered was friendly and helpful. I would stay again in this area.

I appreciate you taking time to provide us with a review. Our motel was built in the 40's by my grandparents. It was actually individual cottages that were eventually connected over time to make the motel what it is today. We continue to make improvements to maintain the history of it and to keep the small business running in our... More

Very clean motel. Has the feeling of past times traveling with family and staying at places that were simple. Bed was very comfortable. Quiet during the night. If I get to this area again, I will stay here.

Reasonable rates, clean, and comfortable. Located on 211 at the bottom of the mountain and before you get into Luray. Nice views of the mountain. Did not get a chance to use the pool because it being late September and a little cool for us. Large room. No frills, but has wifi, direct tv, microwave, mini fridge. Everything you need... More

As title says this place is very clean, rooms are small but that was not an issue for two people. Convenient location from skyline drive, I-81, Luray etc. Owners were very understanding when we had to leave one day early because our little dog was sick. Good local business and it should be supported.

Stayed here on short notice for 1 night mid-week in Oct touring around Skyline Drive/Shenandoah. Small family-run roadside motel - good value and different rather than the usual dreary chain motels in Luray with depressing reviews. It is situated out of town on the 211 just near the entrance to the park. It's right on the highway so there is... More
