2nd rate experience all four nights

1.6 on June 15, 2014

Two of stayed four nights, April 30, May1, 2, and 3. The first two nights in the Washington room were marked by the noise of 24-hour compessor or generator outside at ground level. There are no safety features in or around the bathtub/shower. Breadfast menu is limited. Even though food is prepared by a person in a kitchen, it is not a good value. Thoughtfully enough, the server pointed out that the 'over-easy' eggs might have to be sent back. They were only slightly better on the second try. At another breakfast, one person asked that the sausage be browned more than normal. It wasn't but the other person's bacon was overdone. The laptop and software used by hostess functioned poorly during the whole stay. First it wouldn't accept a payment, then the reciept had to be printed much later. Upon final departure, the software accepted the creditcard for only one night. A second card had to be used for the next night. I was told the computer problems were a common experience for the staff. We changed to the Belmont Garden room for the last two nights. It was quiet enough, but again, the tub/shower had no safety features. Nor was there adequate towel bars for for two persons. The sink drained very, very slowly. There were no hangers in the closet. I asked for hangers for the last day but none were put in. We arrived at our room for the last evening around 11pm. No linen had been changed nor any cleaning done. No staff are present at that hour so we had to make do with a towel that had fallen to the floor due to lack of towel bars. Of the three staff people I dealt with, only the man seemed confident in his role. The two women talked and acted more like servants than responsible company representatives. The building is quite old and clearly the 'improvements' don't go much beyond 'gingerbread'.


Long Weekend Away

3.0 on May 24, 2014

My wife and I took a long weekend away to see some of the historical aspects of Fredericksburg. The Kenmore Inn is ideally situated for this. The property was very beautiful and well laid out. We were met by Haley and she was a pleasure to meet. The rooms were smaller than appeared in the photos. But, very quiet. We did not hear any other guests. Breakfast dining sadly was sub par. The toast was cold and hard, the omelets were very small and the biscuits and gravy was not good at all. The pub located in the basement area had a pretty good meal. Overall, it was a nice place, but a little pricey for what you get.


Gracious, lovely southern mansion

4.4 on May 23, 2014

Have stayed in many a fine place, but this outshone them all. So loved the fine, wide porch and many options to sit and feel like an antebellum Miss. The gardens, too, were exquisite! We were so glad to have chosen the Kenmore over all the other possibilities. A tiny suggestion, though. Perhaps a bit more experience for the hostesses, and we'd not have been left standing, literally holding our bags as she answered question after question from someone who walked in off the street. All we wanted to do after our long drive was check in and relax. And we were a little surprised to get a funny look when we asked for butter for our scones. Oh, well, they were both young, and quite lovely, and will make fine hostesses.


Good value for the accommodation and location.

4.0 on May 18, 2014

The inn was nice and we enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for touring the sites of fxbg. Our room could use some repairs, specific ally the restroom and broken end table, but it served our needs. The staff and breakfast were wonderful. We dined in the restaurant/pub only once during our stay but it was good and again the staff was excellent. Overall I would easily recommend this inn for a trip to the area.


Spring in Fredericksburg

2.6 on May 02, 2014

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend with a reunion group. The inn was pleasant and suited our needs well. It was centrally located and we had no trouble walking to dinner and attractions. Also, parking was easy (a pleasant surprise). On the negative side, I thought the coffee service upstairs should have provided real cups considering the price of the rooms and wine glasses should have been set out for easy access without having to run down an employee and ask. Service overall was spotty. Sometimes excellent, sometimes indifferent. Overall an enjoyable experience with just those small irritations.
