We could walk to the River Walk and whatever else we wanted to do. Lots of good restaurants in walking distance. Breakfast was fine - not outstanding. Room and B& B was clean. We would... More

Cozy and comfortable, this charming B & B is close to the Alamo and the River Walk (if you are a walker), but away from the noise and stress. Many nice restaurants are located within a few blocks. The breakfasts were delightful, with homemade specialties cooked by Lily. We enjoyed the camaraderie of the other guests at breakfast, and Lily... More

Beautiful antiques, comfortable beds, amenities too numerous to mention, walking distance to the Riverwalk, the Alamo and a number of really great restaurants, but the thing we enjoyed most was the beautiful table setting and delicious breakfast shared with friends and other guests and the friendly accommodating owners and staff. You can not find a better stay in San Antonio.

Very comfortable stay right in the heart of King Williams. The room we stayed in was very inviting and furnished with antique furniture. Walking distance from the river and several exceptional local restaurants. Highly recommend!

The Brackenridge had everything we love about staying in B&B -- a charming old house (built 1901), a spacious and comfortable room, delicious cooked breakfasts, and interesting hosts and fellow guests. The house is in the beautiful historic King William district of San Antonio, close to the River Walk to the downtown and Alamo (and indeed further afield), and close... More

I have spent a lot of time in SA because my children when to school there. We have made south town our destination over and over because all my favorite spots are "just around the corner." The stroll in the neighborhoods and river walk trail behind the king William area are awesome. The resturants and bars are in walking distance... More
