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.

This was our first time to San Antonio and randomly picked the Brackenridge House from a web search. We stayed in the 2nd floor Mockingbird Room. The room was private, quiet, CLEAN and spacious. The bed mattress was very comfortable and provided a good night sleep. There is a private rear entrance and also the front entrance. It was our... More

My husband and I had not stayed at a bed & breakfast before so this was our first. We were with a group of family/friends and this was the perfect option and location for us.

It is always good news when a first stay in a Bed & Breakfast inn is a really good experience. Our goal is to make a B&B your first choice of lodging, especially the Brackenridge House. Your next visit will give you an opportunity to try out the restaurants that you didn't get to this time. Bring your friends with... More

We enjoyed being with our friends in San Antonio Texas and Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast was the best place to share our good times. We were able to walk to the River Walk and the Alamo thru a beautiful neighborhood of old homes, known as the King Williams section of town. Brackenridge House is over 100 years old but... More

We will definitely look forward to your return. Serving breakfast to you in Arizona from our kitchen in San Antonio would be a big challenge! Our lovely old house provides great places to gather with friends, and to kick back and relax. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. More

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. We had delightful breakfast mates each morning while we dined on delicious, varied meals prepared by charming Lily, owner. One morning she even offered to drive us to our destination since it...

We loved this B&B. They provided everything we could want in the room and we spent many hours sitting outside on the upstairs veranda with either a glass of sherry (provided in our room) or a cup of coffee with a Mexican wedding cookie (also provided upstairs). It was very clean and private and our hostess Lily was precious. I... More

This old home is in the King William section of town. It is in easy and safe walking distance of the river walk and resturants and other attractions and has safeparking. The breakfast is wonderful. We realy enjoyed having our before breakfast coffee in the front porch swing. However the home could use a good bit of TLC. ..
