My boyfriend and I were in town for a conference. Fortunately, the conference hotel was booked and we ended up at Brackenridge House. Kind of like staying at grandma's house, only much better. Two rooms (plus the bathroom), so plenty of space. Comfy bed. The little kitchen is great for making coffee and storing leftovers and wine (there were even... More

My husband and I have nothing but nice things to say about this place! We stayed here for our honeymoon, and between the complimentary champagne, freshly baked cookies, and Lily's hospitality, we were not disappointed with our choice! The rooms themselves are a good size: comfortable, clean, and furnished with neat old antiques. The house is a short walk from... More

We stayed in the Bluebird suite late October for a two day visit to San Antonio before travelling on to Austin. Brackenridge House is well placed being just a short stroll to the River Walk which will lead you through the heart of San Antonio. We found the accommodation very comfortable and small kitchenette proved useful for making tea and... More

We would love to welcome you back again. Our location in the King William Historic District is great for getting to see the sights in downtown San Antonio. More terrific restaurants are opening up in the neighborhood offering various cuisines and prices. We are glad that you liked Madhatters which is located so conveniently around the corner from our B&B.... More

Flooding caused our b&b to relocate us to Brackenridge House.It turned out to be a great thing! It was quiet, within "walking distance" to restaurants, claw-ft. tub, cookies to die for,, and a wonderfully sweet owner. Lily made us the best breakfast, and we felt right at home.

We love a good B&B, and Brackenridge is excellent. When we didn't want to walk, taxis arrived quickly after we called since this home is close to downtown.
