We decided to stay here and do a quick stopover at the National park on our drive back home to PA. it’s only about 15-20 minutes from one of the parks entrances which was great. We were very tired from a 14 hour drive. We arrived at 430 to check in. There were about 4 parties waiting in line to check in and one person at the front desk. Instead of helping the customers on line. This staff person chose to answer the phones and TAKE RESERVATIONS while we all stood there uncomfortably. Hed then take one person and answer more phone calls. It just didn’t seem efficient. At check in we discovered that the hotel restaurant was closed for dinner and would also be closed for breakfast. We had limited time and had hoped to grab food quick but those plans had to change. Upon getting into our room. We went to the bathroom to wash our hands ( covid precautions) and there was no hand soap / bar soap in the bathroom. The room was small but well appointed- def showed signs of wear. There was also a random spray bottle left on the desk/dresser. We quickly freshened up and went back out to the park ( I asked for soap on our way out) Upon our late return that night we went to take showers and found that a previous guests travel soaps were still in the bathroom ( very concerning considering they advertised extra cleaning measures for covid ). We then went to fill the ice bucket and when my wife opened it. It still had melted ice/water in it from the previous guest. We were very unhappy w our stay and the cleanliness of the room. I mentioned the above at check out and all I got was “ oh my I’ll talk to our cleaning staff”. I can say the lobby was pretty and inviting but otherwise there were not many positives.

Great stay at the Mimslyn
Stayed just one night at this inn with family prior to our visit to Luray Caverns. Parking was easy as was the swift check in. All the people were super nice and the place was very clean. Our room had two queen beds and whirlpool tub. Beds were very comfortable and the room had all we needed. We had coffee and cinnamon rolls delivered to our room the next morning which were delicious! Our stay included passes for two to the caverns and zoo tickets. It is also down the block from a decent Italian place and just five minutes from the caverns. Great stay and price , highly recommend.

14 year Anniversary
We love coming here every year for our Anniversary. The cottages are so cozy and beautiful. We love the jetted tubs and heated floors in the bathroom as well. The staff is amazing too! ❤ We look forward to it every year.

Overpriced with nothing to offer
This place was horribly overpriced with no amenities. We showed up after a long day of hiking to a room with one queen sized bed. When I called the front desk they said it’s because I booked on a third party site and there would be an upcharge to have 2 beds. There also was no mini fridge for storing our leftover dinner and snacks, no microwave, and no supplies to even make a coffee in the room. Talk about a complete rip off!
When we got up and checked out there were little oranges and apples and fruit bars that you would normally see on the complimentary breakfast at most hotels, and yep, you had to pay for those as well.
Do not make the mistake our family did, you could stay at other places and get better treatment for about half the price.

Fantastic wedding weekend!
Recently, my son and now daughter-in-law were married at The Mimslyn with their "elopement package" for 12 people due to COVID cancelling their plans for a larger event. From the moment our son contacted their coordinator, Ryen, the staff was accommodating to his and his bride's wishes. Rather than, "breakfast will be at 7 AM" they asked, "When would you like to eat?" When a cold snap moved the post-wedding dinner off the terrace (outdoors) the serving staff quickly adjusted and made us comfortable on the indoor terrace where we could still see the stars, yet be warm. The front desk was very helpful numerous times, as was the general manager, Jim. We were very pleased with the level of service and the food was magnificent due to Chef Chris, who was again, very kind to them when coming up with a menu with questions about their preferences and gentle suggestions. I highly recommend The Mimslyn for any occasion, but especially for one whose memory must last a lifetime!
