I loved the bed and breakfast experience that the Brackenridge House gave us. We stayed in the Hummingbird Suite. Our suite was immaculate and the bed was comfortable. We traveled over Christmas so the house was lit up beautifully, definitely adds to the Christmas spirit. Breakfast was delicious every morning and the conversations with other guests in the house was... More

It is great to know that you enjoyed your stay at Brackenridge House. We are happy to report that the Jacuzzi is in good working order. So sorry for your disappointment in December. We hope you will come and stay again, perhaps in another season. Plan on having a good soak in the hot tub! More

The Brackenridge House was the perfect combination of southern charm and necessary amenities. I loved my room the "Cardinal" and the private entrance was great. Everything I needed was in the room. I would love to come back.

The area is quiet, and the neighborhood has an old charm, with many houses from days gone by. We were looking for something, and even though we had never been in this city before, we picked it because of other reviews.The picture while accurate, appeared to have larger rooms then in reality. This is not a negative review, just an... More

We had a great stay and really enjoyed Brackenridge House. We were there on New Year's eve and had a great time watching the fireworks from the deck. Our room was very comfortable and immaculate. Great place to stay in San Antonio!

As we were unfamiliar with the San Antonio area, we were not sure where to stay for our week's stay. We relied on photos and previous guest comments from Trip Advisor. Since we booked in November, we were unable to reserve one of the rooms with a separate sitting area, which made it tight for us. I thought it was... More

Our group of 8 ladies visited for two nights and from the moment we arrived, to time of departure, we felt like guests in a friends home, not customers at a B&B! The rooms are incredibly comfortable, beautiful, very well appointed and immaculately clean. Ms. Lily (the owner/innkeeper) is an absolute doll and cooks like a classically trained chef. The...

Extremely comfortable B&B near the heart of San Antonio. In fact you are so close to the downtown sights you can easily walk or take one of the plentiful VIA buses. Get the $4 all day bus pass if you are planning the grand tour :) The B&B has excellent restaurants and ice houses within easy walking distance. There is... More
