The rooms look like they were decorated by an old cat lady with tacky knick-knacks picked from a flea market sometimes in the 70's. The mattress was sagging. The room temperature could be controlled only from the outside by the hotel receptionist - so we were either freezing or boiling alive each night, because there was no receptionist late at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill. The old furnishings in the rooms gave it a very historic feel. We were in a parlor suite that has a bedroom and sitting room connected by a bathroom. The bed was comfortable. The hot water sometimes took a while to become hot but there... More

We were warmly welcomed and given lots of clear information about the hotel and Fredericksburg too. As we were upgraded to a parlour room, I can truly say we were more than pleased with the rooms and the furnishings. Typical of the hotel, the layout of our suite was eccentric to say the least with the bathroom being between the... More

We used this as a four night break in a month long camping trip (it is nice to have a full sized bed and a tub from time to time). Arranged to meet my sister (she is a non-camper) and a chance to explore Fredericksburg. Inn at Olde Silk Mill has a family suite that includes a Queen in one... More

Stayed two nights over a weekend while attending a nephew's wedding, also on the property. Room was exceptionally clean and well prepared. WIFI worked great. Pleasant atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. Many antiques added to aura. Coffee, tea & cookies available in a room off the lobby throughout the day. Plenty of parking. Inn located about 4 blocks from... More

Very clean comfortable and safe. Downtown sites are not really walkable but very short drive . Nice decor and antiques . Cozy with lots of charm. Breakfast was adequate nothing special but great coffee and I thought it was thoughtful that they provided gluten-free cereal and a variety of bagels. Very good price!

Be forewarned! The photos on the hotel website do not convey that the hotel is in a strip mall across the street from a Hardee's. There is a tire store and several gas stations nearby. We were expecting a slightly more. . .historic setting. However, it's only a few blocks to the center of historic Fredericksburg. Having said that, the... More

We stayed here once or twice a year over the past four while our daughter was at Mary Washington. It is clean and comfortable, no fussy B&B pretentiousness, love the Civil War memorabilia. Convenient to everything. Just a nice and stress free place to stay. We love Suite 205!

In general, the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill is a lovely, historic place and I'm glad we stayed there but I would not stay there again because the beds are uncomfortable and I felt like an environmental felon letting the water run waiting for it to get hot (they warn you "8 to 10 minutes" and they really mean...

We stayed last weekend for a wedding and had a great time! The building is historic so there were not many modern upgrades but the bed was ridiculously soft and comfortable. We did have to wait for the water to heat up in the shower but not a big deal. The wedding venue has a lot character and was perfect... More
