We had a wonderful weekend in Fredericksburg and couldn't have been happier with Main Street B&B. You can't beat the location, the charm, the breakfast and the pool! A couple of comments in contrast to previous reviewers' comments...The breakfast was one of the highlights of our weekend. Many of the B&Bs have only pastries, so while there may not have been butter for a muffin and we had to ask for real cream for our coffee, the quality was far superior to anything we expected. The first morning we had the best breakfast taco we've had in awhile with homemade tortilla and homemade salsa to die for. It also included hash browns, cup of fruit, peach/cream cheese muffin (for which I would not have wanted butter or jam), and OJ. Next morning was a delicious omlett and similar spread. Coffee in the room was fabulous (the owners now have a coffee shop next door that serves tacos, baked goods and same delicious coffee).
As far as the rooms, we looked around at all of them around check-out time on Sunday. All of the center rooms with windows on the side of the building have been remodeled and all include large jacuzzi tubs. I think only one had a shower head on the wall, but it really wasn't too much of a hassle to use the hand held shower. The hot water was scalding hot enough to cover the jets. No, the tub was not even close to full, but it was plenty deep once you got in the tub. You could also give it a minute or two and then you would have hot water to continue to fill the tub. The rooms facing Main Street or the one on the back toward the pool have not been updated. They all have 2 rooms and are just a little dated. Not luxurious, but not run-down either. My husband and I agreed that we would still pick Main Street B&B if we were sharing one of those units with another couple, simply because of the pool, location, breakfast, and value. I don't know anywhere else on Main Street where you get a pool (essential for 100 degree days this Summer).
As I said before, we will most likely stay here again, assuming a room is available. We really enjoyed being able to walk down Main Street for shopping or eating and not having to worry about parking.
