Great hotel (pool and initial service was a little iffy during COVID)
I've stated at a few hotels during COVID - and I understand that sometimes early check in is tricky, but this was the only hotel where I felt a bit like service was underwhelming and weren't trying to be accommodating (at least initially). Eventually (after some follow ups) they accommodated the early check in with a great room and everything else was pretty much solid (although pool had some leaves or dirt which was surprising - it was outdoor admittedly), but still solid hotel that I would recommend. It's the best in the area undoubtedly - and all other service was solid (even the person who checked us in later became friendlier and more accommodating). They clearly are taking COVID seriously which is a plus and would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed one night at the Shenandoah cottage. It was very cute!! We had a ton of privacy. Just to note with this particular cabin you half to haul your luggage a little ways from where you park. If your elderly it could be a pain. It would be nice if they had a luggage buggy or something. We could get in our cabin with a key code. Bed was comfy, cabin was clean. Pool closed at six so we got about 30 minutes to use it. Check in was 4pm. Other pool at Inn stayed open till 9pm though. We ate breakfast Sunday. We got there right at 11am, I thought they still had brunch, it is closed due to covid. The cook was kind and made us breakfast!! Very good food, our waitress Tiffany was great! Overall for under 200 dollars a night, well worth it. I will come back if I see Luray caverns again!! Only 5 minutes to caverns, too!

Usually I spend quite a bit of time researching hotels, but this place was a no-brainer, and it didn't disappoint. I'm not sure if this is typical of their rates, but for $150/night I got a king bed, nice sized living area, a bathroom with a pretty spacious jacuzzi tub, and an ample amount of charm. Yes please. Plenty of Covid measures in place as well, so I felt safe. Only complaint was that the bed sheets were pretty coarse.

Best hotel in the area
This hotel sits high on a hill above Luray. Beautiful scene. Inside it's a bit dated. We left a day earlier than planned because of the morning noise, people slamming their doors as they left, from about 5:30 on. The doors are not as sound-proof as a newer hotel. Otherwise the breakfast was a welcome change from hotels that offer little or nothing to eat because of Covid. The eggs, pancakes, coffee, toast, fruit, Canadian bacon, everything was delicious. The staff very good, helpful. If you are a heavy sleeper I would recommend this hotel. But if you're not and you like to sleep in, try a more modern hotel.
