The inn has two restaurants there one is in the basement and its called the Speakeasy. The wait staff was amazing, very friendly and fun. The food was so good... More

We found the Inn online and knew nothing about it at that time. We were really pleased when we arrived and were greeted at the door by an attendant. Everybody was very pleasant and made us feel welcome. The reason we picked the Inn was because we only had one night in the area and everybody else was asking for... More

I took my 9 year old to the Inn for a night to help celebrate her birthday and have some fun one-on-one time with her. The staff at the Inn made everything very special for us, in every way!

Nearing arrival through the town of Luray we wondered if the Mimslyn Inn could possibly look as grand as the photos we had seen. Before us upon a hill stood the grand looking beautiful building with the winding driveway entrance. It was beautifully landscaped but I was sad to see that although there was a wedding in progress the potted... More

Spent one night here, and that was enough. While the place looks nice from the outside, and the lobby, when we got to our room we found it so loaded with furnishings we could barely move around! A King bed (in a room too small for a King bed), an oversized cabinet (for the TV etc.), a chair with ottoman,... More

We've stayed in plenty of grand ole places and this place met all expectations.

Pros 1. The hotel staff was friendly, genuine, and polite. 2. The hammocks are lovely Cons: 1. The rooms could have been a lot cleaner - there were stray hairs in the bathroom when we arrived. 2. The bed was smaller than a queen (either a double or full - not ideal for a romantic weekend). 3. The "gym" is... More
