Historical Traveler Reviews Fredericksburg Inn & Suites
Enjoyed our stay for 2 nights during spring break...lots of people travel to Fredericksburg for spring break believe it or not! The room could use some upgrades, but it was clean and comfortable. After all, we didn't travel 3 hours to sit in a hotel! The staff was super friendly (the whole town is!) and we would definitly return!
Friendly helpful staff
Our family had reserved three rooms for the weekend of March 17th. Each room was a different size...one king, one double queen, and one family suite (king bed in the private bedroom with queen sleeper in the living room). All rooms were larger than the typical hotel. The decor was updated, and the rooms exceptionally clean. Each room had a mini fridge and microwave. The hotel has two outdoor pools (one heated, one unheated), an outdoor hottub with a fireplace and television. Even though the weekend was cool and rainy (very needed in Texas), the kids had a great time in the heated pool. Because of a statewide "burn ban" the fireplace could not be used. However, when it is available, they provide smores kits for any guests. I agree with the others that the breakfast area is indeed small, but the choices are good. Along with the traditional items, muffins, waffles, cereal, etc., they have some delicious sausage rolls that are from a local bakery. Our bunch really enjoyed the complimentary soft drinks that are available from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm. When you travel with kids, alot is spent on drinks from vending machines. The complimentary beverages were a plus. The staff is some of the best that I have ever met at any hotel or inn. Everyone we talked with was extremely helpful.
The hotels grounds are very pretty and have plenty of room to play outside including a small playground for the kids. The creek that runs alongside the property is quite beautiful. The hotel sits two blocks off of the main street where all the shopping and museums are. There are also several restaurants well within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. So much in fact, that we have already made our reservations for the summer.
Even though you can find less expensive rooms in Fredericksburg, the little extras that this hotel has is definitely worth the little extra cost.
Good location and facilities
We stayed at Fredricksburg Inn and Suites on March 15 and 16, 2006, renting two rooms. The facility consists of several buildings, a couple of which are relatively new, and the others being older. We were in the older section. The rooms were standard motel rooms, but clean and comfortable. The facility has a couple of very nice pools and a hot tub, which are nicely arranged. The grounds are spacious, about five acres, and adjoin a small stream. The impression given is of being in the country, although the central Fredricksburg area is a five minute walk away. We were travelling with four children, and they loved the pool,which contained a slide. A small playground is also on site. There is an outdoor fireplace adjacent to the pool, but it could not be used due to extreme fire danger in that part of Texas. A downside is that the area available for the included breakfast is rather small for the size of the facility; there is an outdoor patio area with several tables that could be used if the weather is warm enough, but even then there isn't enough space for breakfast. The breakfast itself is adequate, but it would be an improvement if some pastries or rolls could be added, as there are a number of good bakeries in town. All in all, I would rate this facility a very good choice for those wishing to visit Fredricksburg and the hill country. We would definitely return.
Much has already been said about this facility in previous reviews so I won't be repetitive. I'll just do the pro - con thing.
Pros - Friendly staff; clean rooms, facility, and grounds; nice pools (one heated) and hot tub; adequate breakfast; close to town.
Cons - The outdoor fireplace is a great idea but it needs to be free-standing. This would allow many guests to gather around instead of a huddling few. Also, it would be nice to lose the TV that is set out at the fireplace.
Overall this is a very nice place and good value. It's not a fancy place. I would liken it to a "kicked-up" Motel 6. We will stay again.
A family orientated hotel
I had spent the previous nite at the F'burg La Quinta, so I found this hotel to be a bit of a disappointment. The room is not anywhere as large as the La Quinta, both pools were filled to the max with kids having a ball and making noise (as kids are prone to do). The parking lot is limited and fills up early and if you go out at nite and come in late, finding a spot to park can be a real adventure in itself. The bathroom was tiny and since the rooms opened to the outside, you could hear people outside your door as well as cars coming and going.
I will give these folks an A+ for their continental breakfast, as it is one of the most enjoyable that I've ever eaten. The breakfast area was rather small and it didn't take much to have quite a crowd waiting to serve themselves something to eat.
Liked this hotel...
We stayed here for three nights on July 12-14. There were three adults and two teens sharing the spacious double queen room. Rate was 89.00 a night. Rooms are tastefully decorated and furnishings look new or not to old. The rooms come with refrigerator and microwave. The location is great, only a one block walk to town which is full of shops and restaurants and even a couple of bakeries. There is a Subway sandwich place right on the corner from the hotel, an easy walk for a quick meal. The two pools and poolside areas are very nicely lanscaped with nice outdoor furniture. There is a large yard area with chairs, lounges and umbrella tables placed on round cement slabs spaced around the yard. There is also a small swing set and horseshoes game too. The breakfast is adequate and served in a small old historical German farmhouse that is attached to the hotel. The breakfast room has a quaint and charming country atmosphere with wooden tables and wood floors but get there early as the eating area is small for the size of the hotel and fills up fast. They do provide trays to take the food to your room. Sodas and Tea from the dispenser in the brk. room were available all day which was nice. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I would stay here again.
Discover Fredricksburg on your Spring Break!
It's our "favorite" place. It meets every expectation. It is above and beyond measure. Its Fredricksburg, Texas! I highly reccomend staying at Fredricksburg Inn and Suites. It was recenlty renovated and they have left nothing out. An outdoor brick fireplace, two gorgeous pools, a tranquil stone hot-tub, and great service from the hotel staff. If you want a bed and breakfast setting, call Gausthaus Schimdt, They can accomodate your every need. The have an office downtown Fredickburg, and will "custom" design your Fredricksburg getaway. Pack up the family, and head to Enchanted Rock. You will love the magnificent sights. (try to make it to
the top)!! Do not forget to make your way to the Hanger Diner for a superb lunch. (the daily specials are great)! Sit back, relax and watch the planes take-off, and land. Hope you viist soon!!!
Great staff, lovely grounds
We have stayed twice at this hotel, and will stay there again. The rooms are clean and spacious, and the grounds are lovely. Well-manicured lawns and gardens surround two very clean heated pools, a water slide, large hot tub, and a pool house with a television, tables, and comfortable chairs. (We also noticed a family reunion going on in a separate party room.)
The inn is surrounded on 3 sides by a pretty little creek. It's a very short walk to downtown, about 2-3 blocks.
One of the best things about this place is the staff and management. Absolutely everyone was courteous and accomodating, making the overall atmosphere gracious and peaceful. Just the getaway we were looking for.
They call their breakfast just continental, but they offered sausage buns, muffins, bagels, cereal, toast, juices, pb & jelly, fresh fruit, and sweet rolls. Breakfast is served in an historic old house adjacent to the lobby.
The only thing that I wish they'd provide is a handicap/accessible room with two beds, or with a cot available. They have accessible rooms, but with just one bed. (My husband and I travel with my Dad, who can't stay alone, but we can seldom find HC rooms with two beds.)
However, their grounds are very accessible, and we had no problems negotiating in a standard room with a wheelchair.
We feel Fredericksburg Inn and Suites is a terrific value, and it will continue to be our hotel of choice in Fredericksburg.
Easy place to walk and get around
Very pleasant stay at the Fredericksburg Inn and Suites. Nice size pool and pretty back yard area. Also a pleasant breakfast, although breakfast room could be bigger. It was a very easy walk to the downtown to go for dinner or for a drink after dinner. Will easily return for another trip.
A choice choice
My husband and I stayed at the Fredericksburg Inn & Suites (Fredericksburg, TX) for three nights in February 2005 and had a very positive experience. The staff were great and completely guest-oriented.
Our room was modern, up-to-date, clean and comfortable. The free WIRELESS INTERNET is a real plus for those traveling with a laptop. There's an outdoor pool and hot tub. The inclusive continental buffet breakfast was OK and an added convenience.
The Inn is well situated for visiting Fredericksburg Main Street shops and the Nimitz WWII Museum of the Pacific (highly recommended) and the surrounding Texas Hill Country.
Overall, excellent value for what we paid. (I expect the rates fluctuate based on what events are going on in town.)

Today was a day of travel, and we went from Carlsbad, N.M. to Kerrville, Tx.
We could spend several days here in the hill country of Texas, but we are trying to connect with a family member in Houston and are running short on time, so this may be next year's trip.
We found a great little campground that sits ...
... to cook. As it turned out, we three couples decided to go out to eat, so we drove into Johnson City. We sat there for a couple of hours and visited and ate. It was nice not to rush.
Now we're in for the night and we'll see what tomorrow brings. Since this is rally time, I may not write every night. So if you don't receive our email announcement, don't worry, we didn't fall off the face of the earth, just nothing exciting to write about.

Driving in the USA can be confusing at times but generally its just like back home,albeit on the wrong side. The posted speed limit seems to be just a suggestion as most people go 5-10 mph over so if your going slow be prepared to be passed by everyone. ...

The show featured Beluga Whales, pacific white sided dolphins, tropical birds, and aquatic acrobats. One of the acrobats ...
