“Very Nice, will stay again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2009

I spent 2 days in Fredericksburg VA & stayed here. I loved the creak in the old wood floors, the bed was very comfortable & the fact I had a sitting room with a TV was a bonus. It's within walking distance of downtown & the shops & resturants. Should I be invited back to the golf outing next year I will certainly stay here.

This was my second stay at the Inn, and on both visits my room was clean, cozy, and quiet. The Queen size, antique four poster bed was comfortable and added to the overall charm of the room. Although I could not stay for the continental breakfast, I noticed several people enjoying breakfast in the breakfast room as I was leaving.
The Inn has plenty of parking, and is located on the fringe of the historic area, so it is only a short drive or walk to the restaurants, shops, etc.
When the service desk leaves at 9:30 p.m., they lock the front doors, but provide you with a front door key. Although the area is well lit, I felt a little nervous using the front door key to enter the hotel.
If you're looking for a no frills, comfy, cozy place to stay with lots of charm, try the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill.

We stayed at this Inn for the Bluegrass Festival at the local high school. While it was a very nice facility, the service we received is what makes it stand out. We came early and left our car to walk to the stadium. Even though we were not checked it, we were offered coffee from the breakfast room and immediately felt welcome. The girl at the front desk was super - right down to directions to the Festival. The night desk clerk was also top notch in service, helping us select the perfect restaurant for the evening meal. This is an older inn and the bathrooms could use some updates, and noisy guests (the rooms are definitely not soundproof) are all that stand in the way of a 5 star rating.

We were in town to visit the university and this was very convenient to UMW and I would definitely stay there again.

The Queen Elizabeth room was super. Very cozy and quiet. Within walking distance to the shops in Fredricksburg. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.

We enjoyed our night at the Inn. Our king-size bed was as comfortable as our bed at home. The furnishings were beautiful and reflected the period. The bathroom was roomy and very clean.

Continental breakfast was included, but the eating area was small.
