As a local, I had heard about the Thornton Inn being the former fraternity house turned bnb but had not been. I attended a lovely high tea party for a friend this past spring which we so enjoyed and lingering after the tea, we decided a girls weekend was in order. We found a free night that worked for all...

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend, what a wonderful Bed & Breakfast. The home is simply beautiful!! We loved sitting on the front porch for coffee and cocktails!! The owners, Sunny & Terry were wonderful and truly went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.

We spent 4 days at The Thornton Inn in April 2015 as we were attending the ACM Country Music Awards that were taking place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Dallas, Texas. On arrival we were greeted warmly by the owners of The Thornton Inn, Terry & Sunny, and shown to our beautiful room, the Kinkade. Bathroom facilities were excellent,... More

Everything about this place was delightful. The building is beautiful and well maintained, the beds are cozy and allowed for a wonderful night's sleep. The food was wonderful, and they accommodated both diet restrictions and requests to have certain items again. The last morning I was there, they made my favorites from the week. The owners are friendly and eager... More

My wife and I stayed at the Thorton Inn. We were traveling from San Angelo back to Dallas Fort Worth to be close the airport. We did book in advance. This place was beautifully done with old woodwork and fixtures through out. The room we stayed in was clean and nicley updated. It is located very close to many different... More

My friend and I stayed here, and it was awesome! The B&B is a three story building, siding all around, a lovely building outside. The interior is all hardwood, art on the walls are available for purchase. The rooms are newly furnished and so are the bathrooms. Grantor counter tops, tile showers. All new and refreshing. The breakfast was awesome,... More

We stayed at this cozy B&B this weekend when we were in town for the Cowboys game. The location is great and the shuttle service (for a fee) was helpful when getting to and from the game. The owners, Terry and Sunny, were very personable and helpful and we enjoyed our time talking with them and the other guests during... More

The hosts were very pleasant and always made sure we were comfortable. The rooms were beautiful and the decor was stunning! The breakfast was also very good. Highly recommended if you are looking for a B&B in the area! It is evident that the people take a ton of pride in there inn.

We are experienced B&B travelers and rarely cancel our planned stays, but plans and circumstances do change on occasion. The Thornton Inn is the first B&B we have encountered that charges $50 for a cancellation made more than 10 days prior to the intended stay. This 'administrative fee' is a discouragement, especially, for business travelers whose travel plans may change... More

Mr. Terry and Mrs. Sunny were terrific hosts. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous. We stayed in the Kincade room. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean and useful...we fell in love with the décor and ambiance and hope to one day own a bed and breakfast just like it! Thank you Mr. Terry and Mrs. Sunny and can't wait... More
