Reviewed 17 July 2012

I stayed at this hotel for one night while traveling for business to Richmond. The location was convenient to many of the city's best restaurants and bars, and I appreciated the low price. I parked on the street, which was free overnight, but I had to get up early and move my car to avoid a ticket during the time-limited daytime hours. My room was comfortable and very spacious, on the ground floor, and thus feeling more like a basement (of the row houses that make up this property). Entrance was off of a back hallway, and the only windows in this room looked out into that hallway, so the room was dark. It was necessary to keep the curtains closed at all times (for privacy), so there was little atmosphere. The bathroom was large, the bed comfortable, and everything worked without issue. My only other concern was that the hotel felt short-staffed. I attempted to telephone the hotel prior to my arrival and was never able to get an answer, presumably because the lone receptionist was on the other line or helping a guest. This was rather disconcerting, and it certainly would be bad if one were calling for directions or something urgent. Overall, I was pleased enough with this room, and especially with the location, and I would use this hotel again.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Linden Row Inn. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and sincerely apologize for the inconveniences you faced during your stay.

We make every best effort to provide prompt and courteous service, both in person and via phone.

We are constantly evaluating our staffing and scheduling plans to minimize such occurrences, and hope that you will have a better experience the next time you try to reach us.

We appreciate that you brought this to our attention, and look forward to hosting you again soon.

I have stayed at the Inn twice this year, and as my daughter will be a freshman at VCU this Fall, my family and I will be staying there a lot more. The staff is very professional and friendly and go out of their way to ensure your stay is as good as it can be. The Inn and rooms are very clean, spacious and the beds very comfortable. I have recommended this to other out of town parents of students at VCU and highly recommend it to all my friends should they ever travel to the Richmond area.

We were enchanted with our garden terrace room and the uniqueness of the hotel. The staff were very nice and accommodating. We had researched the area before visiting Richmond and the Linden Row Inn area; and we were very happy to stroll a couple of blocks to some great restaurants and bars( Tarrant's, Lemaire's and Penny Lane Pub). The hotel's shuttle can take you into Carytown where more food delights await you! (Secco Wine, Basilis Greek) It was a fantastic Fourth of July for us!
I thought our room was cute and very clean. The beds were comfortable and we were in the garden terrance which was very convenient. We parked on the street just outside the hotel and had no problems with finding a space or anyone messing with our car.
Richmond itself has quite a few museums and historical neighborhoods to fill up your time. I esp. like the Richmond Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Top Notch!
We are already planning a return trip and we look forward to staying at the Linden Row Inn again!
The complimentary breakfast is nice with fresh coffee, fruit and pastries. What really made it for me though was the oatmeal. I am gluten free and it was very nice to have an gluten free option. My fiancé enjoyed the make it yourself waffles and the bagels and cream cheese.

We made last minute reservations on our way north. Sight unseen this was the perfect Inn for us. Not a chain, not a corporate facade but a real live Inn. Everybody that worked here was exceptional in their respective responsibilities. The check in and out was smooth and flawless, the room was beautiful, we stayed in a King room in the main house and it couldnt have been better. The Breakfast was also very nice and well attended, The shuttle service to local restaurants and sightseeing alone make this the perfect place to stay. We will most definetly be back!remember that this is an old inn and not a new sterile big box chain.

Room Tip: If you have rabbit ears you might want to ask for room away from courtyard, but we enjoyed meeting t...

Great inn! We have stayed in a number of hotels in Richmond and this is our number one choice. We have stayed with our 2 children last year and we went back this year for a romantic evening as a couple. A wonderful stay!
