“Nice place with decent price for the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

I've always wanted to stay here to see what it's like but was having too much fun trying all the bed and breakfasts in the area. This is a nice hotel with comfortable beds. We stayed creekside which puts you by the creek and lovely patios with rocking chairs. Although it rained (yay cuz Texas needed it) the entire time we were there and so couldn't enjoy it, the creek rooms have outdoor areas to enjoy with picnic tables and a fire pit. It is in walking distance to the main drag and they have free internet and parking. My lower rating is due to a couple of mishaps with housekeeping mostly. There was a dirty rag in the room and the jacuzzi bath was not clean. When I asked them to fix it, they did, but there was no big "oh dear, so sorry, how can we make you happier?." I also had filled out the pre-info form that asked if this was a special occasion and had said, yes this is my wife's 50 birthday. There was no acknowledgment of that when we arrived. No salutation, no wine, no candy.....so why ask?

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your stay with us. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the hotel. I do want to apologize for the couple of mishaps you experienced. I was told of the issue about the cleanliness of your room when I arrived to work. I called and spoke to your wife and did apologize and made sure that our executive housekeeper would be the one to come and take care of your room. I am happy to hear that was to your satisfaction. As for your wife's birthday, I am very sorry. Our front desk agents are very thurough in adding notes to reservations about these special times.We do everything we can to acknowledge birthday's and anniversaries, even adding little extras in the room. Were we sometimes run into a problem on this, is when a reservation is booked through another site such as Expedia, Travelocity , etc. when the information is sent down to our system we do not have those notations, so there is no way for us at the actual hotel to know. Hopefully you can come again and we can make it up to her. Happy "Belated" Birthday.

Sincerely,
Kammie Robertson
General Manager

We made a last minute decision to stay here and found the rates reasonable and the rooms better than expected with front sitting area, small refrigerator, and coffee maker. Room was quiet, clean and located on the upper back overlooking the wooded small creek. Breakfast was filling with various breads, scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles and cereals. Location is walking distance to many of the main street shops and eateries. The small pool and jacuzzi provided a nice end to the day.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the upper back overlooking the creek, pool and sitting areas. The front rooms view...

The Inn offers the best of two experiences: it is very close to the downtown area, but it offers an almost rural setting at the back of the property. You can leave the crowded downtown scene and be sitting a peaceful, calm area on the property in a matter of minutes. Our suite was very clean and gave us ample space. The breakfast was fine and the staff was friendly and helpful. This hotel proved to be an excellent choice.

I think this was our third time to stay at Inn on Barron's Creek over the past few years. Overall, the hotel seemed more organized and better operated. The front desk help were very friendly and helpful, very efficient. The breakfast was good and the staff kept the dining room clean and the food well stocked. Our housekeeper on the third floor was so friendly and cooperative and such a good cleaner, she made our stay so nice. In the past the lobby was hot and had flies in it. It was nice and cool this trip, and no flies - great improvement. The location is great for its easily accessible parking lot, and an easy walk to all the activities downtown and the Marketplazt.

The Inn is backed up to Barron's Creek, which is very scenic and peaceful. Great landscaping, patios, and outdoor seating, as well as swimming pool and hot tub.

The only negative we would like to share is that some of the furnishings are showing wear over the years and probably need to be put on a replacement schedule. The sleeper/love seat in the living room was worn out and very uncomfortable to sit on. Also, the shower curtain was ragged. However, the management reached out to us for our input after our stay, and the Vice President of Operations assured us that these items have already been resolved.

Overall, The Inn on Barron's Creek is a great place to stay and we will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Rooms are beautiful and continental class. If available, rooms overlooking the creek have a great v...

I have stayed three times at Inn on Baron's Creek. Twice for a business meeting and once for a getaway with my husband. The property has been wonderful for all three visits. Rooms are very clean, modern and well priced, and situated on a pretty little area near a creek and within easy walking distance to the main shops downtown (2 blocks). The included breakfast buffet is a nice touch, fairly typical of a Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn Express. Stayed in a regular suite for one of the business meetings, an upgraded suite (very apartment-like) for another business meeting, and in one of the creekside suites for the "getaway". I am a meeting planner, so in comparison to other properties for the meeting planning portion of my stays, the service was exceptional and a real value. For a modest rental fee, the meeting room includes a kitchen, projector, internet connection, screen, microphone and the staff was very accommodating in providing snacks, beverages and coffee for a very economical price. I highly recommend the Inn for a family or girls-weekend, or for small retreat-type business meetings.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice, but if you want romantic ... choose the creekside rooms.

Mr. Trumet:

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with preparing for, and hosting, the Welch Family Reunion, which we held June 13-15, at the Inn on Barons Creek.

We've met, as a Family, every third June since 1963, which means this was our 18th Welch Reunion, and it was, by far, one of the very best.

Not only were the hotel accommodations clean and comfortable, the Conference Center was an excellent facility. Thanks, too, for allowing us to bring-in the Bejas Food Trailer on Saturday night--that was a big hit! (And I think a couple of non-Welch guests who were staying at the Inn on Saturday night actually ordered from the trailer too!!!)

Your staff was very helpful, and I want to especially commend Sergio, who cleaned-up the Conference Center, and its restrooms, both Saturday and Sunday morning; provided us with fresh tablecloths; and took-down the tables, and set-up chairs, so that we could have a brief Worship Service before departing. Sergio is obviously a very hard working and a dedicated employee.

Thanks again to you, and all the dedicated staff at the Inn on Barons Creek, for a great time. Wishing you all the best,

Andy Welch

Our recent stay to celebrate my wife's birthday and see the Fredericksburg Trade Days was fantastic. The suite was deluxe with super appointed furnishings. We enjoyed the pool and the creek side views. Really easy to walk around the corner for Main Street restaurants and shopping. We didn't have time, but the Spa looked really interesting for next trip.
Thanks,
Bill C.

Room Tip: The room we had was a deluxe suite on the second floor. It was great.
