Here is the deal: if you want a clean room, front door parking, and mountain views then this is the place. This is a mom and pop. It is a little smaller than the chain hotels. Yet, this mom and pop has chosen to invest in better quality sheets and towels than some of the big boys. The price is right. The location great. They even leave your light on and your key in your room if you are checking in late....this is called service. The room was nice and cool also which was a pleasant surprise as many don't turn on the air in advance anymore. You may hear a little highway noise, but we travel with a fan so it does not bother us.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Ten minute drive from the Thornton Gap Entrance of the Shenandoah National Park. Very friendly checkin staff. Small motel of only 19 rooms, old but well maintained. AC worked well. Queen room a little on the small side, yet large enough to fit a Fridge-freezer and microwave. Pool was closed but plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy. As other reviewers have mentioned, the curtains/shutters aren’t good enough to block out the motel’s outdoor lighting, so the room is quite bright throughout the night. Generally clean but some dusty surfaces. Annoyingly the box of facial tissues only contained 3 tissues. First night was nice and quiet. Second night however the peace was disturbed by a bizarre mother-daughter-grandmother party who were smoking marijuana all night, shouting and playing music whilst sat outside of their room. The motel may want to consider applying a policy whereby smoking is only permitted in designated places only so that smoke doesn’t drift into other guests’ rooms. Early the next morning said party woke everyone up shouting at their barking dog. All in all, a pleasant enough stay. The price tag of $90 per night a bit steep for what you get hence my 3-star instead of 4-star rating.

Stayed here for 2 nights while doing some hiking in Shenandoah. Very close to the Thornton Gap park entrance and a few minutes in the opposite directions to town and restaurants. The room was basic, very large and very clean. We had some issues with the TV which got fixed immediately. The woman in the office was very helpful. Loved the hanging baskets on the porch! The pool was closed but looked to be very nice should we have visited in the summer. Would stay here again for sure.

I can't say enough good things about the atmosphere, and the cleanliness of the room and pool. The cleaning crew, and the office staff were so friendly and kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and this will be our go to place when we are in the area or just need a weekend getaway.

This was our 2nd time staying at this motel and we will definitely stay again when in the area. If you're looking for a bougee hotel this isn't it but...... its a super cute and very clean motel with spacious rooms and bathrooms. Yes it's a bit outdated but it's charming and has plenty of amenities to offer. The grills, firepit and pools are faves of ours. The staff couldn't be nicer! We travel often and the staff here is hands down the nicest we've met. The absolute sweetest ladies and they make you feel like you're home with family!!

Stayed late July. Nice property for a short stay. Room was clean and comfortable. Front desk closed early, so call ahead if you're arriving late. Pool was very clean. They had a fire pit going at night. Very convenient location. We would return.

When visiting a National Park, our family never expects to spend much time indoors, so we always look for a great motel nearby. Hillside Motel is clean, reasonable, and situated perfectly near an entrance to Shenandoah National Park. The staff is friendly, the vibe is quiet, and spotty WiFi was our only issue. If your vacation is about the hotel, this is probably not your spot. If a clean, affordable room that gets you quickly to the trails is what you’re after, this is the place. NB: Room 19 was ideal for giving us a little space from our 7yo, with a separate bedroom allowing us to watch a movie or play a board game while he slept.

Hi Doyle. Thank you for choosing the Hillside Motel and taking time to provide us with a rating and review. Yes, room 19 (our suite) is great for families wanting a little extra space with the second room. We do apologize for the WiFi as we know it's a little spotty but we have installed an extra router in hopes of that helping. Come see us again the next time you are visiting the area!

10min from Shenandoah or Luray Caverns (highly recommend). Double room is tight to maneuver as the furniture takes up most of the space. Room was presentable but the bed linens we're unpleasantly stained and in need of replacement. It was fine for a one night stay. One issue to note: wifi non-existent. Couldn't get it to connect and there is little-to-no cell service. Plan ahead.

Hi Erica. Thanks for staying at the Hillside Motel. Glad you were able to enjoy the Luray Caverns, they are pretty amazing! Our room with the one double bed is the smallest we offer and as you state great for a one night stay. We appreciate the feedback around the linens. We are sorry to hear that you had concerns with your linens, we outsource our linen cleaning and will follow up with the vendor. We have installed an additional modem that provides better WiFi service but we are in a rural area so WiFi does not always pick up the best, but we try to offer it. Hope you will come see us again in the future.

Thanks for a great visit, we very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean, the bed was comfy and the folks were friendly. It’s roadside but quiet sleeping. We appreciated being able to bring our dogs, and if we had more time we would’ve hung out by the fire pit and borrowed one of the grills you offer.
