We did have dogs last year and the room was still satisfatory considering that . I joined... More

A little dingy, but appeared that they were trying to keep it clean. Could use some rennovation. Based upon other negative reviews, was pleasantly surprised it was as nice as it was. Okay for the solo business traveler looking just for a night's sleep. Beware charge for safe in room. It will be automatically added, unless you request it removed... More

10 years ago after visiting the surrounding Civil War battlefields of Virginia this was a nice place to come and relax. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. The overall condition of room 134 is regrettably very bad. The carpet and furnishings appear to not have been upgraded in the last ten years and the odor coming out of the... More

My father and I decided to stay near Fredericksburg for 3 nights while visiting the States to see the MXON at Budds Creek. We were after some cheap accommodation and were attracted by the price and location. The hotel is a stones throw away from exit 126 of I95 and the staff were efficient at getting us checked in. We...

Day or night, good service depends upon people willing to give their very best at all times. That's why it's truly rewarding... More
