Stayed here during a trip to Shenandoah National Park this spring. Check in was quick and painless; the clerk was neither friendly nor unfriendly.
The room had seen some heavy use. The carpet was worn and dirty in a few spots, the bathroom vent was very dirty and the shower tub was dingy and faded. However, this may have been just due to age and heavy seasonal use instead of a lack of effort on the cleaning staff.
Beds were average, but comfortable enough after a day of hiking. For the price, it is about what one should expect.
I'd recommend stopping at the Wal-Mart nearby to get some breakfast foods because most rooms had refridgerators. The free breakfast was lackluster and consisted of coffee, toast, and some prepackaged danish/mini muffins. Since the only reason to visit Luray is for hiking/backpacking nearby, I'd recommend starting out with a healthier, heartier breakfast before that. There are a couple of decent breakfast places in town too, but get an early start to beat the crowds.
The highlight of the place is the awesome view of Shenandoah you have from the rear of the property. Amazing. Also, it is right on the crossroad that leads into the park--only about a 7-10 minute drive from the ~30 mile marker entran
Overall, for the purpose and price, not a bad place to stay, but they could attract repeat visitors if they improved the breakfast and repainted/touched up a few of the rooms and improved some fixtures. THis may sound odd, but the lighting in the rooms is dingy and depressing, I found it hard to wake up in the morning since it was so dim in the room.
--Final note, since I went in May, it was still rainy and cool, so we did not get a chance to use the pool.
FInal verdict, recommended for short stays and in the summer months for their AC and proximity to the park.
