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. The staff was wonderful from the front desk lady who checked me in to the GM of the establishment Mr. Sims. He greeted me with a welcoming...

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...

Took my husband here for his birthday this weekend. The hotel and the staff more than came up to expectation. We had a Blue Ridge room which was very comfortable with a nice sitting area. The bed linens were superb. Jetted tub was nice touch. We had wine tasting in the Speakeasy on Friday evening and the bar maid was...

I often drive from Arlington VA through the Shenandoah Mountains to destinations near I-81 for breakfast. I stop at The Mimslyn for breakfast on occasion. I appreciate the old southern charm of the place. The dining room looks especially charming, but breakfast fare is rather pedestrian. Breakfast food at Cracker Barrel is higher quality, but The Mimslyn has the ambiance...

The Mimslyn Inn was a nice place to stay but could have been better. The above average price for the room and the advertizing online make it seem like an old southern mansion. It does not live up to the antique charm it promises. Much of the furnishings are reproductions. While the room is furnished with quality soaps, emery boards,...

The Mimslyn Inn did not up to its billing. The food was, at best, pedestrian; restaurant service was unprofessional--even bumbling. At the luncheon buffet, the waitress intruded more than a dozen times, interrupting conversations to ask "if everything was okay." Supper in the basement lounge was even worse. It appears that most of the patrons were locals, with no room...
