“Comfort with a million dollar view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

The room was cozy and clean with a front row view of the mountains. The pool was a welcome relief after our 8 hour drive. The best part was were treated like family. Luray is an amazing town, we look forward to spending more time there.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

We loved our stay at this neat motel. Our family (two adults and two teens) were quite comfortable and loved the fact that it is so close to everything. Only a few miles down the road you will find the caverns easily accessed, Wal-Mart close by too if you forget anything. The lady who was working while we stayed there was very sweet and accommodating. This is a no frills establishment and if you are just looking for a clean place to lay your head after a day of sight seeing this is a great choice. Only 4 stars because the pool was under construction and the Wi-Fi was a little weak. But, overall we would stay there again! Loved it!

This motel worked well for a family of five. We had the large room with two double beds and one twin bed. Yes the room is dated as some people said but the money saved allows you to do other things. This was a very inexpensive three day two night trip. The pool has been redone. The children loved it. I will recommend this motel to value minded people.

This was a lovely little place to spend the night!

The staff was excellent! Rooms were VERY VERY CLEAN! It was quiet (even though it was off a main road) and the rooms had air conditioning and cooled off quickly. Couldn't ask for more in a motel.

Great little motel and great price! :)

Room Tip: Call ahead! Make sure you call before 8:30pm if you are staying that night. They leave the offic...

We have been staying at the Hillside for the past 12 years when we do our volunteer work in the National Park. Always clean and comfortable at a reasonable price. The owners and staff are very friendly and willing to accommodate any request.

Room Tip: Have stayed in most of the rooms but enjoyed numbers 1 and 19 the best.

Drove up to Shenandoah National Park on a last minute whim. Tent and sleeping bag in trunk but decided to check options. Camping = $20 + setting up tent and not very comfortable air mattress. Park Lodge = $140. Days Inn = $90. Hillside Motel = $60. No it is not fancy, but it is more than good enough. Road noise was died down later in the evening and the bed was acceptable. I had a good nights rest and was able to hit the hiking trails at sunup the next morning.

No, it does not come close to a fancy or even a chain hotel in comforts or amenities. But it costs 1/3 less and is a whole lot better than sleeping on the ground in a tent. I will definitely be back for more weekend hiking.

This is a low budget inn. All rooms face a 4 lane highway. 1 very small window. Very small TV. Wifi was not working, nor was the pool open. The bed had a rubber sheet on it that was noisy. I got my money back and went down the road to the Days Inn which for the same amt if money was much better.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. We truly value the opinions of our customers. Providing our guests with the best possible hospitality and service has always been our mission.

You are correct that our WiFi was down the weekend you visited. It was communicated to you during the reservation that service had been called and WiFi would not be available during your stay. We are truly sorry for any misunderstanding in regards to the WiFi.

As for the pool, there was no inquiry about that during the reservation but our webpage clearly states that the pool is under renovation. The pool is expected to be open by the end of June.

Our beds have cotton quilted bed padding , along with 100% cotton sheets for the comfort of our guests. We are not familiar with the “rubber sheet” that you refer too.

Our televisions are standard size of 24 inches and upgraded this year providing Direct TV Satellite service. We are located directly on US Hwy 211 East, along with the other hotel that you decided to stay at due to the pool not being open.

When you requested your money back, we provided a full refund with no hassles. We are truly sorry that you weren't satisfied.

If you come back to our motel I would love to have the opportunity to speak with you directly again, so please ask for me. We hope to see you again in the future and wish you the very best.
