“Big city hip retro meets Hill Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2011

What an absolute find. We were ready to move in the moment we entered. We stayed in the largest of the rooms with our 12 year old daughter on a roll out bed and we were all incredibly comfortable. Beautifully furnished with amazing retro furniture mixed with gorgeous artworks. Owners obviously have taken a lot of time and effort to make this property a work of art in itself. We wanted to own nearly everything in our room. Loved the thick, fluffy towels. Wonderful amenities. We almost didn't want to leave the room to explore Frederickburg and the surrounding towns. The vouchers for breakfast are a great idea and were perfect for our needs. We ate in both nights - take away food - as we loved the room so much. We had been a little concerned at the reviews suggesting the room was noisy because of the beer garden/restaurant next door. Yes, we could still hear some noise from some fairly woeful country music and voices at around 12 midnight on one evening, but the windows and doors are well sealed/double glazed and the noise was muffled and wasn't a problem for us. I can imagine it might be noisier on a weekend night but again, I think the double glazing would deaden the noise enough. Don't let it put you off as this is one of the most comfortable and appealing places I have stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a side room away from noise

The room was wonderful: hip, mid-century modern, spacious and clean. However, the building sits next to a beer garden and cafe. Music played and voices were heard until 2 a.m. every night until the owner fired up his Harley Davidson and thundered off into the night.

I love RoadRunner Inn! We have stayed here twice and will return soon. We first came to Fredericksburg for a wedding and stayed here. There are only 3 rooms above some cute little shops on Main St. All the rooms are clean and well furnished -Decorated in very retro "Austin" eclectic in turquoise, yellows, oranges, browns. The rooms have high ceilings and are spacious. The whirlpool bath tubs are perfect after a full day of shopping.

There are two rooms on the side of the beer garden where there is live music until late at night, but if you go down and enjoy the festivities, you will be fine! If you do not want to be above the noise, make sure to ask for the only room not on that side.

This unique, funky 50's meets modern B&B room was superb! The large, airy suite was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed, even a huge basket of paperbacks at the top of the stairs. The incredibly high ceilings and tall windows in this loft above a store on the main street were awesome. The bed was comfortable, the huge bath had whirlpool tub, the efficiency kitchen and sitting area were very well appointed. And the room was across the alley from the Silverlake restaurant, so as we drifted off to sleep, we could hear the soft strains of local musicians playing in the patio below. Everything was within walking distance, and our breakfast vouchers gave us a choice of three delicious neighborhood cafes. Not for people who can't climb stairs.

This is a beautiful space with great decorating. But, and it is a big but, there is a beer garden next door. Since there is no staff onsite at the Roadrunner and they use a reservation service, I didn't have anyone to call about moving to the room on the other side of the building. I did email the reservation person at about 11:00 the first night, but never heard back. The second night was fine, the bar was closed for spring cleaning. And the bartender was very nice, eventually I just called him and asked him to turn it down. While it turned out OK, I felt we should have had fair warning about the noise. Or some way to reach a human to move us. It wouldn't have been a hassle for them to put us in the quiet room to begin with since we were the only ones there the two nights we stayed.

There was also a crowing rooster, but far enough away, he was sort of charming. I don't think he's loud enough to wake anyone up.
