My daughter and I went on a college visit to Texas State University for Spring Break and stayed at the Viola Street Inn Bed & Breakfast. What a beautiful home. Our room was gorgeous and the bathroom was so roomy with a clawfoot tub. They even have a cute little koi pond. If my daughter goes to college in San... More

Kerry and the ladies at Viola Street Inn went out of their way to make our stay perfect. They provided a wonderful organic, vegan, gluten free breakfast for my wife and I for our 5 day say and were very accommodating with our hours coming and going.

Reaffirming everything positive in every other review. Great place to stay if you are visiting Austin and San Antonio in two days. Not too far from Gruene Hall which is well worth a visit. Also not too far for SXSW attendees and a far better value if you can get a room. Great place to stay if you are visiting... More

Oh, Viola Street Inn, I have nothing but good things to say about you. I stayed in the Victorian Suite which was previously the inn owner's master bedroom. My room was large with enough space, jacuzzi tub and shower, lounge chairs and so on to camp out in there if I liked. The beautiful thing about staying at the Viola... More

The breakfasts were generous, wholesome and excellent. My dietary restrictions--communicated in advance of my arrival--were cheerfully and capably accommodated. I appreciated the snacks (fruit, etc.) staged in my room upon my arrival, after a long day of international travel. (Obviously, food is pretty important to me!) The lovely Inn was comfortable, sparkling clean, and inviting, and my room gave me... More

We really enjoyed our stay, as our first time we were very pleased. The staff were very friendly and non-intrusive. The common areas were a real comfort to hang out. Be sure and walk the neighborhoods surrounding this old mansion.

We had a wonderful time. The room was lovely, the bath magnificent, and the people friendly. We travel a lot, and Viola Street Inn ranks with the best accommodations we have ever had. The grounds were a gem of a garden, We hate telling you this because we want to go back, and now it will be booked.

My wife and I have been visiting Viola Street Inn for four years now and will not stay anywhere else in the San Marcos area. Kari and Melinda and the whole staff are tremendous. We have probably stayed there over eight times and the service and hospitality is always excellent. We have traveled the world and stayed in a lot... More

Very pleasant. We stayed in the cottage, small but comfortable. Very friendly staff, good food, and we loved walking through the historic district and soaking in the charm of the beautiful old houses, many of which have been restored. And so reasonably priced!
