We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at the Mimslyn Inn in Luray, Va. We found the Inn on line through TripAdvisor's website. We were en route to Charlottesville and wanted to stay somewhere en route near the Luray Caverns/Skyline Drive. It was the perfect location to celebrate a special anniversary. The Inn is totally impressive when you drive up the...

A beautiful hotel in a wonderful setting. We stayed in the Blue Ridge Suite, which was very comfortable with plenty of room. We had an issue with our door not locking when we left the suite but the staff could not have been more helpful in solving the problem quickly and efficiently. The food in The Speakeasy Bar and Restaurant...

As we were taking relatives to Luray Caverns in June, we passed by the imposing Mimslyn Inn on Main Street. With our wedding anniversary coming up, we decided to spend it at the Inn. We weren't disappointed. The Inn, built in 1931 and lavishly decorated, was delightful. Although we didn't partake, there is an outdoor pool and spa, exercise room,...

Pulled up and a band was playing John Fogarty on the porch - my kind of place. From the enthusiastic doorman, to the charm of the decor, to the excellent biscuits and gravy in the dining room, this is a fantastic place to stay after exploring Shenandoah National Park. I'll be back!

We stayed here b/c I had a Groupon for $99 a night. Its ok for that rate, but not the $350 per night that was on the back of the hotel door. It was OK to use as a base for day tripping around the area. We had a "historic" room on the second floor in the front of the...

I traveled to the Mimslyn Inn for a golf outing the weekend of July 19th, I had the pleasure of staying at the Mimslyn Inn as well as dining in the Speakeasy Lounge.

If it wasn't for the Groupon that we purchased for $75 per night stay at the Mimslyn, I would be absolutely furious. I don't like to throw around accusations but I think our discounted room rate had something to do with our assigned room. Cleanliness: When we arrived in our room after check-in I noticed a foul odor that smelled...

My husband and I stayed after our trip to the Caverns. I decided on this place based on other reviews and wanted some where nicer to stay instead of a cheap chain hotel. We arrived earlier than we planned but the staff had no problems adjusting. They delivered our cheese and cracker plate within a few minutes of getting to...

We stayed for two nights as a stop off point along the Skyline Drive as we wanted to visit the Luray Caverns and go rafting. The rooms can't be faulted for comfort, facilities and cleanliness. The pool is also a plus on what were very hot days. We ate in the Speakeasy on one night and then the terrace the...
