“Bad front desk service (for large party); nice otherwise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a bachelorette party; we got a few rooms and a bigger suite to hang out in. The suite was a good size for us - had a kitchenette and living room area - but checking in was kind of a nightmare. We all traveled from different areas and the front desk was very rude and unhelpful, almost making us feel like we shouldn't all be staying there even though we paid for enough rooms to accommodate us all. Just a bad start.

They also didn't clean our suite very well after the first night. We had a good amount of trash piled up (pizza boxes, plates, napkins, etc.) that they didn't remove, and they didn't clean the kitchen area. I doubt this is a problem with stays with fewer people, but it just isn't a great place if you're having a bigger group hanging out in one room.

Otherwise, the inn was very nice. Great location for walking to the main street, good breakfast with lots of choices, clean and charming. I'd consider staying here again with my husband but would not recommend it for a larger party.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your experience with us. I am happy to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and will return. I am sorry to hear that the check-in process did not meet your expectations. I seem to recall a large church group checking in that day as well there may have been a little confusion. I do apologize for that and that your room was not serviced to your satisfaction. We do take each review and comment to heart and this helps us improve our service. Thank you again and we hope to get to see you in the future when your travels bring you back to Fredericksburg.

Sincerely,
Kammie Robertson

Read the reviews…spacious rooms, great breakfast, affordable prices, beautiful grounds, convenient access to surrounding attractions. All of these things are true, but what makes The Inn on Barons Creek a standout is its attention to customer service. Janet (front desk) made genuine recommendations based on our “likes and dislikes”. She also called us by first name every time we walked through the lobby area and followed up with us regarding the day’s events at the end of each day. I watched as she handled several guests at one time, making them all feel as if their needs were of utmost importance to her. People make the difference at this particular establishment. No doubt, you will love the accommodations, but you’ll leave already planning your return trip because of the experience the staff creates. This place is a MUST!

This inn is the perfect place to stay in Fredericksburg. It's on a side street, close enough to walk downtown if you want a little exercise (maybe 10 minutes tops) but much quieter than lodging on the main thoroughfare. The check-in procedure was a breeze and the desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious, very clean, with a microwave, fridge and two televisions and a separate sitting area. Breakfast is included in the very reasonable room price. As for Fredericksburg, we especially enjoyed the Rathskellar restaurant downtown...so much so that we ate there twice and also thought the antique mall on the west side of town was really fun. If you enjoy hiking and beautiful views, be sure to visit Enchanted Rock State Park, just a short drive north of town. Although Fredricksburg is rather touristy we enjoyed our one-night stay and very glad we made the stop on our way to Big Bend National Park. I highly recommend the Inn on Baron's Creek as a great place to stay for any length of time.

What a wonderful hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast was great. The staff was helpful. Close to the main street of Fredericksburg where all the action is. Can't say enough good things about this gem.

My family and I have stayed at the Inn On Barons Creek since it opened. The staff is the best and always make us feel at home. We have stayed there well over 100 times and whether it was one night or a week we never want to leave. if you've never stayed there, "Try it, and I guarantee you'll like it."

We chose to spend our New Year's Eve in Fredericksburg and had the most wonderful experience staying at the Inn On Barons Creek. Their prices year round are very competitive, and you truly get a lot at this hotel. The room's are big- suites with microwave, refrigerator, two TV's with a separate living area which can be closed off from the bedroom. The morning breakfast was very good and the staff really are incredibly nice, as many of the reviews previoulsy have stated. Furthermore, the location really makes the stay great, as you never need your vehicle once you park. (Unless you want to visit many of the surrounding vineyards, which I also highly recommend) The downtown area is a very short walk away. This made our New Year's celebration that much nicer! I look forward to going back in the summertime to enjoy more of the outdoors surrounding the facility. Truly an excellent hotel.

We had a very nice stay and will visit again! Loved the breakfast and nice accommodations. The only thing we could suggest was changing the shower heads to have an adjustable water stream. The pressure so strong it was like needles hitting my skin. Again, we had a great experience and the staff was super friendly.
