“Home from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

We were in Salado for a wedding. Trip Advisor told us that Inn on the Creek was a great place to stay. They were not wrong. Will (one of the owners) is a great host and extremely attentive to every detail with a great sense of humour. One example of which is: we were having a discussion about the use of plastic tableware in US hotels. He assured us that they only used china tableware. Being a cheeky Brit, I said I hope it is real "English China". Next morning for breakfast we had a table reserved for us with genuine "English China". We were hugely impressed. But this was just one small example at the care that Will and all his team put into ensuring the guests have a truly fabulous time at the "Inn". We stayed in the Stewart room beautifully decorated in what we believe is in a trad southern style. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked when we arrive, so we had to eat in the bar. We were not disappointed: the food ambiance and service were all superb.
Will and the team: Thanks.

I highly recommend this establishment for any occasion when you feel like being pampered.. Will is committed to service and making your time there unforgettable.

Room Tip: We always stay in the Alexander room across the street from the main house. It is on the end and ver...

My high school girlfriends and I had a great time last weekend for our annual B&B getaway at The Inn on the Creek. Will was a great host seeing to our every need. We not only enjoyed our comfortable rooms in the main house... we had a ball visiting in the living room on the ground floor of the main house. We ate on site at the restaurant there and the food was divine. I would recommend this B&B without hesitation!

The Inn On The Creek gave us the most romantic personalized weekend. We have ever experienced. We have traveled all over the country and this was the BEST. The staff was so friendly and the grounds were beautiful. We sat on the veranda and watched the quiet river so peaceful. The food was awesome. (Best steak ever) . W. Cant wait to go back

My honey and I were in Austin for a conference, but came out to the country for a bit, to see where some of my peeps are from. Salado is a shadow of the town it once was, but the *Inn on the Creek* is a destination in itself.... From it's lovely situation on the banks of the river/creek, to it's sumptuous verandas that just beg to be lounged upon, to its lone inviting hammock, and it's wonderful, antique-filled rooms, the Inn on the Creek is a delightful find! We got there during a slow part of the week, before summer vacays were really starting, so we had most of the place to ourself, and Will, the owner, made sure all our needs were met. He checked in with me via text to make sure we had the best directions in, was very concerned about any dietary limitations, and generally could not do enough to make us feel welcome! He was a delight. He even arranged for a *gorgeous* romantic breakfast for us on the verandah the next morning.... My only critique is that it really is a bit pricey, all in all.... I would plan a long weekend getaway just for me and my sister, if it was not quite so expensive.... But it was worth it for a one night romantic side trip.... :)

This is THE place to stay in Salado. On July 10-11, five of us ladies (ages 18 to 86, all related) stayed in the Alexander and Willingham rooms, which were lovely and comfortable, plus they adjoin and can be used as a large two-bedroom suite. We were celebrating the 18-year-old's birthday, and Will went out of his way to make sure it was a wonderful experience. We surprised the birthday girl with a limousine tour of Salado; Will stocked the limo with sparkling fruit juice and champagne glasses, and he drove us to some of Salado's most interesting shops and beautiful areas. We enjoyed the graciousness of the service and the delicious breakfasts. The on-site upscale restaurant, Alexander's Distillery, is excellent, and its bar area includes an outdoor patio featuring artisan glass that changes colors as the sun sets! :Plus the view over the creek is like a lovely postcard of the best of Texas. At the end of our trip, we all agreed it had been one of the best places we'd ever stayed.

What a welcome surprise this was!!! I have been in the hotel business for years and am not easy to please but let me tell you the owners Will& Chris just could not say no to any request and made it all happen with grace and style . The rooms are quaint and immaculate and impeccably decorated. The ground are lovely and the bamboo Forrest on thier property boasts a beautiful pagoda for intimate weddings. I loved relaxing on the hammock under the huge oak tree that provided the shade I needed to enjoy being outside in June in Texas . Can't wait to come back!!
Special shout out to Tony who does everything from serving a fantastic breakfast to getting extra towels !! Also Leroy the bartender at the 3 floor bar is funny, professional and makes great cocktails !!
