We stayed here 2 nights early this October and found it to be a very pleasant and welcoming establishment. Charming and friendly staff, very nicely prepared and delicious breakfasts. The setting is is attractive and tranquil though it is a couple minutes from downtown San Marcos. It is also very convenient to the TSU campus if your are visiting someone... More

I stayed here when up for a friends birthday. I have never stayed at a B&B so I was a little bit skeptical. The moment I drove up, that all disappeared! The staff was very accommodating and willing to go that extra mile. Since I was the only one staying through the next morning I told them I would not... More

This was our first stay at the Viola Street Inn and it far exceeded our expectations. We booked 2 nights on the strength of trip advisor reviews- the staff were very friendly, breakfast was excellent, and the ambiance of the property can't be beat. We will certainly be back the next time visiting San Marcos.

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

We had a family wedding to attend in Texas. We took over 4 of the rooms at viola street inn. Some of my family members had never stayed at a bed & breakfast and had a few reservation about staying at one. The rooms were lovely, the breakfasts were wonderful, but it was the genuine warm hospitality that we received... 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!

Everything about Viola Street Inn B&B was superb. The property is very well landscaped and has very nice places for guest to relax and visit with other guest (both inside and outside). The entire place is elegantly furnished. Our room was very nice- clean, comfortable bed and an good bath. The staff prepared an excellent breakfast which we enjoyed sharing... More

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.
