Several friends and I have stayed at this dated and modest motel 4 times prior to this last weekend. We all were very disappointed in the quality since new ownership has taken over. There was no water pressure in our shower. When we reported it the lady said, " oh yes....that's right". She did offer to move us to another... More

I will be staying at the Dietzel this Friday after golf at Ladybird, as I have done for many years. It has two distinct advantages. It is very quiet, on the edge of town, with large, comfortable rooms and friendly owners. It is also next to Friedhelm's, the best restaurant in town, and we have tried them all.

I read many reviews before booking this hotel. It surely gave me the feeling of back to the history: 50 years ago. However the room was clean, sheets were clean, and AC was strong. The hotel was very quite as well. I was also told they are pets friendly so next time I can bring my dog.

I have always loved this place, and I've been staying here for years when I'm in Fredericksburg. With that in mind, I was highly disappointed to learn that the family who had owned and managed it for decades had sold the property. Even so, my wife and I decided to give it a shot with the new owners. I'm glad... More

Booked this fairly late after dates of our visit changed to include a Friday night stay and other places I called were booked for Friday. We did not want to stay Wed. and Thurs. night here and then move somewhere else so this was great. This is a very simple but great place to stay. It is reminiscent of the... More

Last minute trip and struggled to find ANY room in Fredericksburg. We ended up at the Dietzel and were not sure at all what we would find when we got there. We were amazed. It is an older motel but incredibly well maintained. The room was as clean, if not cleaner, than some of the 4 star hotels that we... More

Stayed here several times. It is an older place but good and clean. It certainly serves the purpose. Will be staying there again. There is a swimming pool and a very good restaurant next door. On the edge of town so not in the middle of traffic.

A last minute trip lead me to this older, however quiet, and clean motel. The price was right, although The Dietzel lacks the updated amenities, of the major chain hotels, it was clean, safe, and quiet. The front desk staff is super nice, the location is good for a 2 minute trip to downtown Fredericksburg, and the grounds were in... More

A plain motor hotel from the front, the large windows in the room look out over a meadow of wildflowers where deer graze in the morning. Immaculately maintained mid-century simplicity - as a motel should be. No knick-knacks or gimmicks, or over-decorated spaces, the clean, simple decor and spare, solid architecture bring an immediate sense of calm. After hours of... More

Very nice room for an older motel. You can park at the door. Very quiet, very clean. And they accept pets. Will stay here again. There is a pool! And room to take the dog for a walk. And right next to a great german restaurant.
