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.

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

When your travels bring you to the DFW/Arlington area stay here! It is located just minutes from the Rangers and Cowboy stadiums. The home is beautifully restored with gorgeous furnishings.

All the rooms are very nicely furnished, all the interior and bathrooms are newly constructed with up-to-date remodeling touches - rainhead in Kincade room shower. Breakfast is the real treat, Jim has the experience and the passion to pepare... More

Any misgivings about a Bed & Breakfast in a big city are immediately erased when you walk in the door and meet Jim and Debbie. This beautifully restored, former Frat House, proved to be the perfect place for my wife and I to sneak away for a couple days, when travelling out of town was just not convenient. Jim and... More
