My husband and I enjoyed a night at the Mimslyn Inn after hiking in nearby Shenandoah National Park. The exterior appearance is very impressive. The landscaping was pretty. Parking was easy to find. Our stay was dictated by a Living Social deal with a whiskey theme. Our room was on the second floor and looked over the pool, hot tub, and back yard. We did use the pool, but it was neat to see that it was equipped with lifts for handicapped guests for both the pool and the hot tub. The backyard featured two hammocks that we did use.
Our room was on the small side, as others commented. It included two wide nightstands, an easy chair and ottoman, a narrow desk, a flat screen TV on a rolling platform behind wooden entertainment center doors, and a queen size bed. The bed was fairly comfortable (in fact, apparently you can purchase a mattress from the hotel), but the pillows were pretty lumpy. I liked the comforter with a picture of the hotel on the top. We had two very large windows that let in a lot of natural light. There was a closet with one robe and a quality laundry bag. The restroom was on the small side, too, but it had a nice sink and high quality toiletries.
I ordered the turn down service that included tea light candles, faux rose petals from the entrance of our room up onto the bed, and a bottle of chilled champagne. The employee at the front desk was discrete in asking what time I wanted the service so my husband would not know. I appreciated her effort in doing this.
The fire alarm went off twice in the morning -ruined our ability to sleep in so we went to have our included breakfast. Breakfast was terrible. The server got 3 out of the 4 items I ordered incorrectly. I got potatoes instead of grits, sausages instead of bacon, and scrambled eggs instead of eggs over easy, and the toast was cold. She went to get me over easy eggs, but it took so long that we actually left before it ever arrived.
