If you would like to spend a night beloning to the mid-50's, Hillside Motel would the bill. The rooms/cabins are a bit on the small side, with a porch and outside chair. The bed took up much of the bedroom area, with enough space to walk on both sides., I found the bed comfortable.
Furniture consisted of nightstand, chest of drawers and table & chair., A tv with 70 plus channels sits on the chest. Also a mico/fridge. No phone.Remember 1950's. The room was clean.
I found the inside door handle of the outside door missing., The inside door locked no problem with a regular key. The sink stopper wouldn't fit in any position, so just left it alone. Had plenty of towels. The water pressure was adequate and hot. The shampoo was in a packet, not bottle, which I couldn't tear open. Used my shampoo. Discovered no shower soap, used my shampoo to wash down. I look at the shampoo and soap as minor inconveniences. I should have looked before hand. I consider the bathroom having adequate space.
The staff was friendly . Only met one member. The motel atmosphere was laid back. There is a fenced in pool. Hillside is located east of Luray on R211, about six miles from the Skyline Drive. The cabins are about 100 feet front R211. I heard little traffic noise.
Hillside was not my first choise. Had a reservation in Luray, before reading the motel's trip advisor reviews. This motel had a serious bed big problem. Hillside has no problems with bed bugs.
Overall, Hillside is a no thrills motel. My stay was quiet, relaxed and comfortable. The cost was $54.40, paid with travelers checks.I would probably stay again for a night. Hillside has repeat guests. I met two men who stay at least once a year, for over 20 years.
Luray has few restaurants. I had supper and breakfast at Uncle Bucks Restaurant and Lounge. Good food and service, at reasonable prices. Parking is in back of the restaurant.
