We were looking for a place to stay at the last minute in the New Braunfels area. My wife and I prefer B&Bs over the chain motels if possible. All the places around New Braunfels and Gruene were booked so we started looking around the San Marcos area and are we glad we did! We found a wonderful place in... More

They had me at fresh baked cookies greeting me at check in! It only got better. I absolutely love a soft luxury mattress and linens. The bed had 4 layers of comfort. But I did force myself out of bed for a gourmet breakfast of a egg casserole, fresh fruit, and more! The grounds included a hot tub and outdoor... More

Our recent stay at Viola Inn was our first visit to the charming bed and breakfast, but I'm hoping it won't be the last! This place exceeded our expectations, from the staff to the surroundings to the clean cozy and romantic room we stayed in...most comfortable bed I've slept in away from home. The historical ambiance throughout the house was... More

Spent just a couple of nights at Viola Street Inn during graduation weekend. We were overwhelmed by the warm hospitality, beautiful accommodations and delicious meals! This charming B & B makes chain hotels seem so boring now! Hope to visit again! Thanks so much!

I'm glad you appreciated the quietness of our location. It's nice to be close enough to the town square without being too close. We like it quiet too! More

We stayed along with friends for two nights in April and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The San Marcos area is a great place to visit with numerous attractions and several excellent restaurants. We were treated as valued guests by the staff and owners at Viola Street Inn and will surely return in the future for another very enjoyable stay.

My mother and I stayed here while searching for a home to buy. It was perfect - the environment, the room, parking, everything! If we have any visitors, I hope to have our guests stay here sometime in the future.

It sounds funny to hear that our parking was a plus, but really, we have heard this before. I guess it's part of feeling safe and secure, so we are glad you appreciated it! More
