We make it to San Antonio several times a year; mini family vacation trips usually. Been doing this for nearly 30 years. Actually had a resort time share for many years there and have also stayed at just about every hotel on the Riverwalk. For our 35th anniversary decided to do something different and since it was just us two... More

We are pleased your escape to Eva's was a welcome stray from your normal routine. With the abundance of restaurants in our neighborhood and the walkability of the neighborhood our location is ideal. Even though you are used to staying on the Riverwalk, we hope the 10 minute walk to the commercial section of the Riverwalk added to the romantic... More

My fiancé and I stayed here overnight whilst travelling through Texas en route to Costa Rica. We stated in the Lavender room. What a super place this is!

We are glad you found our inn a respite on your travels. Our team works hard to ensure each guest is treated like a VIP including the brownies. There was always something wonderful under my mom's cake plate when I came home from school. We like to think our afternoon snacks provides that same welcome feeling. Come back and soak... More

A sincere YES to ALL the reviews written for this inn! The extra size of the Blue Bonnett room with its kingsize bed and large full bathroom with claw foot tub was perfect for our long stay.

My husband and I stayed here on the afternoon and night of our wedding. We were married in the morning, so Deborah very generously let us check in a little early. Our room was comfortable, and parking was free (always a bonus downtown!). The house is adorable, and the decorations went well with the house. The service was excellent! Deborah... More

Very beautifull old house. We were treated like a king and queen. Service is 200% of what i'm used to! Spot is also very good. Near the old part of s.a.! One min: matrasses/bed was a little old and not so firm anymore.

I simply can't say enough good things about this B&B!! A friend and I spent four wonderful days there and relished every moment.
