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 do change linens after each guests stay and have an outside vendor that provides the cleaning and pressing of our bed linens. 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.

Stayed three nights at this older. basic hotel located close to the Thorton Gap entrance to Shenandoah National Park but the is little else nearby. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was large and there was a microwave and mini-fridge in the room but our room was the third or fourth from one end of the hotel and the Wi-Fi was useless; coupled with weak mobile data, this was a real inconvenience. The room rate was attractive and if looking for good access to the park, and satisfied with basic accommodations, Hillside is a viable option.

Thanks Steve for choosing the Hillside Motel. We are sorry that the WiFi wasn't the best for you but we have just this week had an additional modem/router installed to help with WiFi in the upper rooms. We are happy to see that you was able to enjoy the Shenandoah National Park, it's definitely a beautiful attraction. We are glad to hear that room met you needs as well.

Motel is clean and had everything you need including a small refrigerator and microwave in our room. We enjoyed the mountainview and the tables and chairs outside each room, also our room (1) had a table and 2 chairs in the room. Nice large tub in the spacious bath. Parking right outside the rooms. Guests quiet and everyone was friendly and considerate. We chose this motel based on the TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. This motel is reminiscent of the camp motel I stayed in when I was growing up. It is an older motel but a good value and it is very clean and the bed comfortable!
