We are a retired couple from Bristol, England visiting your state for the first time.
We plan to spend 2 nights in the area, having driven up from Charlottesville on Friday 7th October.
Could you guys please advice where would be the best place to look for a motel for our final 2 nights - there seem to be so many choices. We are on a budget, so a max of $100 a night would be good.
I imagine that if we have Friday, Saturday and part of Sunday morning in the area before we scoot off to IAD, we will want to look at more than just fall colors from Skyline Drive?
Luray looks like a sensible base, but we'd be interested in any thoughts / suggestions.
We will have used rental apartments / houses during our tour, but would really like a hotel / motel for our last 2 nights.
