“Nice, clean and cheap.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2010

Stayed for two days in August. Nice clean pool, room was clean. Bed was bothering my back on night two. Gravel drive is a little tough on a motorcycle. The town closes up at 5pm and motel nearly empty during the week. Would definitely stay here again however.

We were warmly greeted by one of the owner's two beautiful golden retrievers. The owner was very friendly and courteous. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean and very affordable. This motel is located by the highway, but you don't hear the noise in the room and you only hear some of the noise in the bathroom. We liked being able to park in front of our rooms. The whole place is quiet - no one running down hallways (there are none) and no slamming doors (doors don't close unless you close them). By the gazebo, you can be amazed by the hummingbirds during the daytime and you can "ooh" and "aah" at the lightning bugs at night. The large picture window in your room overlooks a wildflower field. It was raining when we were there, so we opened the window and listened to the rain. The motel is located next to our favorite restaurant - Freidhelm's. Don't go to this motel expecting up-to-date amenities. You will get a flat screen TV and a blow dryer - some rooms have a microwave and refridgerator. What you will get is a great motel that is a throwback to the 1960's. Our little group is in their 50's and 60's and we loved this place.

Nice MOTEL for the money. Very clean rooms and very nice staff. Located at the end of town on 290. Short drive to the main part of town. Our room had king size bed, table with 2 chairs, refrigerator, microwave, rocker/recliner, love seat, dressing table with chair that's really nice for the ladies. Had only shower, no tub which was fine with us. Had a small but very clean swimming pool. I wasn't there to swim. We will stay here the next time we come back.

This small Motel just outside of Downtown Fredericksburg was a great location and a very good value when we stayed there on a weekend in which other Inns and cottages were almost "fully booked." We didn't want to pay the high B&B fees, and this was about $103 a night. Outside, when you drive up, its an "L" layout Motel, but it's on a very large lot and you can tell the Innkeepers are very conscientious... they are re-doing the pool when we were there. So outside is "plain", and you park right outside your room, but once inside... the rooms were very clean. The window unit (actually above window level...) was kinda noisy, but best thing is the view. Room had a large picture window, and you look out back onto "nature" with large trees ... It was a quiet place. Staff was friendly.
Tip: some of best German food in town is in the restaurant right next door. It was recommended by several, and the food was very good.

If this is priced at least $10 below nearby chain hotels (no brkfst), it is well worth it. The room is not nearly as small as cheap motels usually are (had a table and big picture window) and this place is clean, safe and not by the road... and, of course, you park right in front of your room. The heat worked (follow his instructions) better than standard hotels. So, while not really exactly the Ritz, at 1/2 the price the other reviews are correct; it is worth seeking out.

Very noisy when I was there. Room was next to ice machine and everyone congregated there.
Large wedding group was staying there and filled ice chests so no one else had any ice. Many were drunk. Could not get near the pool it was so crowded. Room was hot. Only thing good was the place was clean. Owners did nothing to quiet the others. They
were busy playing with their two dogs behind the motel.

You absolutely have to try this place. It's a hoot!! It's cleaner than my own bathroom! The bed was comfortable, he was asleep in 5 minutes. The room stayed nice and dark and while we expected some highway noise, there really wasn't any. It reminded me of staying at grandma's when you were a kid.

You absolutely can't beat a king size bed for 70 bucks. We're not staying at any other place except this one!! Gives you plenty of extra money to spend shopping!!
