We had an amazing time an Inn on the Creek. It was like going back into time + the cleanliness! The area is beautiful and we will come back in the Spring to enjoy the outdoor even more. Special congratulations on the service which is the one of a 5 star hotel! We don't feel lost at all in this small town in the middle of nowhere. Everything is made to make us feel HOME.

My wife and I stayed for two nights. Right from the start Tony was great, an awesome representative for the Inn. We stayed in the McKie room, a wonderful 3rd floor room overlooking the creek, with a comfy king bed, sitting area, a small library nook, and large private bath with huge, antique, claw foot soaker tub. Dinner that evening in the on site restaurant, Alexander's, was perfect. Great service, perfectly prepared food, and nice setting. Wait staff was attentive, knowlegable, and friendly... and it was nice to have the chef check on us personally. After dinner we spent some quality time with Leroy at the bar. After a night of peaceful sleep we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast served by Tony in his typical friendly, funny style. You MUST try the baked french toast (we went home with the recipe!). Everyone made us feel completely at home and we can't wait to go back!!!

The house and room were comfortable and nice. We stayed in the Vickery- it has a sloping ceiling on one side- not for everyone, but we liked it. Property was beautiful- breakfast was nice, but could have been a little earlier. Only downside was that the hot tub was really dirty- we had been planning on using it, but couldn't.

Wonderful accommodations along Salado Creek. Only one minor complaint...just need better bath towels!

My wife and I had a birthday party to attend in Temple and decided to stay here rather than a holiday inn or something similar. We arrived late on a Friday night and were in love with the place as we drove up. The room was remarkable, pictures on the website did not do it justice. Truly needs to be experienced in person. Breakfast was more than we imagined and so delicious. This was our first B&B experience and we plan on coming back in the near future for more than one night.

Everything was top notch at this lovely Inn. The inn hosted me and a small group of college friends for our reunion. It was absolutely wonderful. The guest rooms' décors are beautiful and each unique. The food both breakfast and dinner at the bar was outstanding and the service impeccable. The grounds are refreshing & very relaxing with a view of the creek and chairs, hammocks to sit back and enjoy. We took advantage of the nice huge hot tub. Additionally it's in a perfect location--right off the highway yet tucked away so that you have a real 'getaway'. The shops and restaurants of the quaint town of Salado are within a leisurely stroll of the inn.
