We had a wonderful stay in the Desert Blossom Suite! The suite is the top floor of the house. It is very spacious and comfortably fit the four of us. It is perfect for a family or if you just want the extra space and privacy. The onsite parking is also very convenient. The house is charming and decorated with...

The house, food, host and staff are all excellent at Eva's. We loved the larger Blue Bonnet room on the second level. There were others staying during our time that made breakfast conversations fun and informative - sharing experiences. Location is ideal to downtown, restaurants, and history in the neighborhood. My only issue, which was no fault of the BnB...

I went to San Antonio for a professional conference with 7,000 other attendees. Thank goodness I booked my stay at Eva's instead of one of the huge downtown hotels! This charming home in the historic district is an oasis in every way. The innkeeper attends to absolutely every detail to make her guests comfortable and happy. Fresh cookies in the...

Eva's Escape is a bed and breakfast located quite close to the river walk and a 20 minute walk along the river to downtown San Antonio. The rooms are very comfortable but "old world" and the breakfast room is gorgeous. We were seated around a table with the other guests and had breakfast together like a big happy family. Really...

We arrived early and Debra let us check in anyway, and told us all about the house and fun places to eat and shop. We chose the Lily room on the first floor with a king bed that was super comfy. Everything was clean and well appointed. The shower in our room was very small, and being 6 ft. could...

If you are confined to a wheelchair, this is not the place for you. However, if, like me, you can deal with 5 steps and walking around inside the house they have a beautiful room on the main floor for you. The Lily room has a monster bed. One of those old fashioned king size babies that you need a...

Deborah, our hostess, is genuinely charming and she has thought of every detail in advance to enhance our experience in this lovely home. It is located in the King William District and is close to the River...

This is a lovely old house, with some beautiful pieces of old furniture and high, coved ceilings. The innkeeper, Deborah, is charming and welcoming. She was caught in traffic when we arrived (we were 2 hours early-not her fault for not being there), but we called her and got the code for the door. The Magnolia Room is a little...

Yeah!!! Thank you for sharing your honest feedback on our inn. Our philosophy is we have two stars: our beds and breakfasts. It is great to see we did great on both accounts. We will also make sure guests know we have flashlights available in each room for night time exploring. We enjoyed having you as our guest and we...

Wonderful stay at Eve's escape for a recent conference. Was in a great neighborhood just south of downtown. Great local places nearby (Tex mex, bbq, fun outdoor beer garden). Deborah was a fantastic host. Comfortable room , great bed. Everything clean and the morning breakfast great each day. Definitely recommend.

Thank you for sharing your experience at our inn. We are glad you found our inn as a conference lodging option. As you discovered we are a 15 minute walk to the Convention Center. You were able to enjoy the conference and then come back to the inn and relax. Again thank you and we look forward to seeing you...
