We had a lovely stay in this beautiful historic inn convenient to so much in Fredericksburg. Easy walk to restaurants and close to the college. Staff was cordial and welcoming and our room, the Betty Washington was comfortable and we'll appointed. A little bit of road noise at night, but otherwise lovely.

The Kenmore Inn is a lovely treasure in old town Fredericksburg. Each room is unique in its furnishings, history and size. It was our third visit there. Our room was extremely comfortable, clean, tiled shower, large windows flatscreen TV and complementary Sherry. It is within walking distance of restaurants and quaint shops on Caroline Street in old town. From antiques...

We chose the Kenmore Inn for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. It was not a pleasant experience. They failed to respond in a timely or helpful manner while I was arranging the dinner. Here's an overview of the good and the bad. The food itself was good. The room was pleasant though dim. The staff did an excellent job of...

Four of us had an excellent meal during Fredericksburg's "Reastaurant Week". I have been to the Inn for special events and had excellent food. But, this is the first time I have eaten there as a regular diner. I was very impressed with the service and the food. 2 or us had a salmon on a bed of polenta and...

I was greatly disappointed in the handling of my "attempted" dining experience during Fredericksburg Summer Restaurant Week this year. I called the Kenmore Inn at approximately 10 in the morning of 4 Aug to make reservations for 2 at 5:45. There was no answer just a prompt to leave a message. Which I did requesting reservations for 2 and I...

One of the best kept secrets is the Kenmore Inn wine dinner held the first Wed of each month. We've had dinner there many times and always enjoyed the experience. We began going to the wine dinners about 2 years ago and they have been super. five-to-seven courses each paired with a specifically chosen wine. At the start of each...

This is a wonderful historic property on the edge of the tourist district in Fredericksburg. I very much enjoyed my stay here. I spent one night in the Fredericksburg Grand room. It was a lovely room, with a large comfortable canopy bed, jacuzzi tub and wood-burning fireplace. I was tempted to have them build me a fire, but it was...

We stayed for two nights in one of the second-floor rooms. Mostly the room was fine; effective, quiet AC, nice linens, reasonably good bed. Bathroom was quirky, 1930's vintage, but everything worked. The breakfasts were very good, ordered from a menu, but not creative as in the B&Bs we've enjoyed the most. Location is quiet and convenient to downtown restaurants...

Wanted to stay in a place and room that had a historic ambiance so I selected the Fredericksburg Grand room. Room was clean and comfortable with a nice shower. The Inn's location is very central and within walking distance of a number of historic places. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had dinner in the Inn's restaurant which was...

This review is for the restaurant only. My husband and I recently had a delicious meal on a weeknight during a special occasion. The shrimp and grits were yummy. They were more soupy than what I'm used too but very tasty. Service was quite attentive. My complaint is the ambiance - partly our fault though. We should have picked the...

I am sorry to hear that your experience wasn't what you'd hoped. I am unsure if you are local, because you should have been offered the upstairs dining. I always allow our guests to dine upstairs, in fact, one local dines alone 2-3 times a week upstairs in our main dining room. I will speak with the reservation agents and...

“The Marye's Heights room is very reasonable and is often booked for business travelers. Super quiet and convenient.”
  • Not the room I stayed in, but I peeked in. Next time...
  • The fixtures were authentic.
  • The details made the room!
  • Honestly, I've never been to a hotel that has sherry by your bedside! Must be a southern thing.
