Proprietor Terry takes hospitality to the next level. Deliciously different hot breakfast every morning delivered whenever you wanted. I ended up with the accessible room on the ground floor with a private entrance. A shower big enough for half dozen people. If you are going to the game, a theme park or visiting the university, you must stay here!

We arrived late for our stay, but enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and lovely conversation with the host. I truly hope we get to return in the future. The facilities are very clean! There were complimentary beverages in the mini fridges upstairs.

Absolutely loved this place. After a long day of driving we arrived to a beautiful home, beautiful rooms, and warm personalities. The front porch is a great place to sit and visit and the inside is very warm and perfectly designed to make one feel at home. We stayed in the fraternity room which was perfect. It was very quiet,...

The Thornton Inn is a wonderful gem of a B&B for Arlington. Terry and Sunny make you feel like part of their family. Very nice and quaint. Centrally located to all of Arlington's Entertainment district.

For my daughter's Eloise themed birthday, we wanted to rent a B&B to pretend it was the Plaza and the Thornton Inn did NOT disappoint. It's super cute and cozy and they were really accommodating in my requests. All of our guests--parents and kiddos--were impressed. We toured the rooms and all agreed we'd have to stay there one day.

Having just returned from a weeks stay at the Thornton Inn B&B we can genuinely say this is the perfect place to stay. The location is perfect for exploring the two cities of Dallas and Fortworth whilst also having what Arlington has to offer on your door step too. The Kincade room was very grande and had the most comfortable...

I have traveled extensively thru out the world always staying in Country Inn's and Bed and Breakfast. The Thornton Inn ranks amongst the top places that I have had the delight to stay.

Have stayed in many B&B's and this one rates as one of the top of the list. Our room was great and very clean. The host Terry & Sunny were outstanding. They really make you feel at home.
