Reservation Messed Up

2.4 on July 30, 2018

Made a reservation through (BB.C) for family suite with two rooms in Jan 2018 to attend wedding in July. One month before wedding, Olde Silk Mill (OSM) called and stated reservation wasn't made. My wife stated we were coming for wedding. OSM changed reservation to a one room at higher cost?? Go figure, less for more money! Not sure who telling truth or who messed up, but they messed up my stay. We had a 6 month old and his parents. We had to bum a stay with relatives to make work.. OSM wasn't apologetic, had no compassion and no sense of making it right by at least providing original charge. Housekeeping didn't leave clean towels or empty trash, just made the two beds. Very disappointed and will not stay there again.

Inexpensive B & B in Fredericksburg

We were looking for an inexpensive place to get some sleep on our way back home. Won't call it high end but it was clean and comfortable.

Pleasant stay at the Inn at the Olde Silk Mill

I zipped down from DC to stay and wander aimlessly around Fredericksburg. It's located on the north end of town and only takes minutes to drive to the downtown area. The rooms are well appointed albeit small. I was surprised to find that the continental breakfast consisted of a few store bought lender's or Pepperidge Farms bagels, Thomas' English Muffins, two dry cereals and blueberry muffins. It seemed a bit out of place for a place of such grandeur. Nice grandfather clock and period pieces throughout the hotel and a cozy "parlor" on the first floor with lamps and a piano.

Beautiful and Quaint!

This is a beautiful and quaint bed and breakfast! The staff are most friendly, courteous and very helpful! If you want to visit Old Fredericksburg for the weekend, the Olde Silk Mill Inn is the place to stay!

A Very Welcoming Place to Stay

3.0 on September 02, 2014

The Inn At the Olde Silk Mill is a very welcoming place to stay. The common areas are very nicely decorated and there a several different common areas to gather with other travelers in your party. The day person at the front desk was much more informative and welcoming than the evening staff person. The continental breakfast is adequate eating and running and situated in a nice common dining room...we chose not to eat the breakfast as we were looking for a nice brunch dining experience which we found in town. Although our room was nicely decourated there was an odd smell to it (sort of like a rancid oil smell that we also noticed at the restaurant down the street which makes us wonder if there is not something located in that part of town that has a smell that permeates that area) ...when I requested a different room even though there were plenty of empty rooms the evening person did not seem equipped to make it happen.

very pleasant stay

The only problem we encountered is waiting for the hot water. We realize this is an old inn and the pipes are very old. Other than that, the stay was very pleasent and the town is very interesting and historical. We will definetily consider staying there again.

OK place to stay

A charming B&B it isn't, but it's an OK place to stay. Be aware that charges a hefty commission vs what the B&B charges.

Innkeeper Response
There is a commission rate paid to when a reservation is made through their website. I did over hear from the front desk staff that this guest was a little disgrunted about the rate he paid was slightly higher then what he found on our website. I do wish I would of had the opportunity to discuss this matter and perhaps offer a discount. The bed and breakfast website is a very convenient, relialbe site. However, if the guest is not satisfied with the agreed upon rate at reservation time or check in, then would be a good time to dispute. I understand that feeling like you have been overcharged does not set you up for a positive visit. You are welcome to return and inquire about our AAA, Military, repeat customer and other discounts.
