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... More

Terry and Sunny are wonderful hosts. The inn is fantastic. They make you feel better than family because you don't want to leave. Beautiful restored older home. Close to the airport and shopping. Great alternative to a hotel.

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. Terry & Sonny Graham are the most charming & attentive of hosts! Their beautifully restored home is immensely comfortable. I spent 7days in the ground floor Windberg... More

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. We had tickets to Dallas Cowboy game and Terry took us there and picked us up after the game. The next morning... More

For me, the best B&Bs are those that have the architectural beauty and character of an older home with all the amenities of a new one. We first stayed there in July and have been back twice since. The owners are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts are great. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are large with... More

On a recent business trip to Arlington Texas, our travel department booked me into a Bed and Breakfast for the first time in 9 years.

As a local, I had heard about the Thornton Inn being the former fraternity house turned bnb but had not been. I attended a lovely high tea party for a friend this past spring which we so enjoyed and lingering after the tea, we decided a girls weekend was in order. We found a free night that worked for all...
