Historically Fredericksburg is a popular stopping point along Intersate 95. This makes it easy to find a property, but difficult to find a decent place with a vacancy. Using my Garmin I called several hotels to find an appropriate vacancy that was pet friendly. Some clerks hung up when I mentioned a dog. I ended up talking to Ben at the Southpoint Comfort Inn. He welcomed me, agreed to save the room for me, and gave me directions. I arrived a few minutes later and he was absolutely fantastic, always with a smile. I have stayed in many properties, including five-star hotels, and Ben could fit in at any one of them. He checked me in with expediency, offered suggestions for eating in the area, produced menus, and even suggested some of the favorites at each restaurant. He was pleasant and went the extra mile making sure everything was perfect. Should you stay here, and I hope you do, I hope you are lucky enough to have Ben attend to your travelling needs; he really makes a traveller feel great at the end of a grueling drive.
This hotel was almost 30 years old, but is kept in tip-top shape. The pool was warm and clean, and quite adequate for an over-night stop. The property was quite clean, and very comfortable and roomy.
There is a rather complete breakfast buffet, as well. Should you be in the mood for shopping you are also in the middle of tons of stores and malls.
