We chose Eva's Escape at the Gardenia Inn (Eva's) entirely based on Trip Advisor Reviews and the fact that they had a room that could sleep 5 persons. Our experience there was absolutely perfect. From the back story (sorry, you'll have to visit to chat with Miss Deborah to get the story), to the elegant 1920's feel, to the very... More

From the sumptuously decorated rooms, to the plethora and quality amenities, to the food, the the impeccable cleanliness...Eva's Escape was a joy from the moment we walked in the door. The staff were incredibly warm and gracious and the rooms were incredibly beautiful. Why spend twice the money on a corporate hotel downtown? Eva's is a 12-15 minute walk along... More

Absolutely beautiful Bed & Breakfast inside and out! And the staff, especially Deborah and Nola, could not have been more pleasant, helpful and professional. Located in the beautiful King William District of San Antonio, it is within walking distance of excellent restaurants and entertainment. Also a beautiful two and a half block walk to the Riverwalk. This part of the... More

My son and I booked ‘Eva’s Escape’ for two nights based on the glowing reviews we read on-line. It lived up to the hype and surpassed our expectations. Our hostess, Deborah, and her team, are warm and charming individuals. The house is gorgeous. Built at the turn of the 19th century, it lives and breathes history. The furnishings are exquisite....

I had set out to look for a hotel in downtown San Antonio for my husband's 75th birthday. We have stayed in several old, beautiful hotels--La Mansión Del Río Omni, The Menger, and The St. Anthony--and this time I wanted something different. Cruising through the Internet, I discovered this little gem called “Eva’s Escape at The Gardenia Inn.” What a... More

I am sad that I only could make one breakfast in 4 days due to conference meetings -- what a treat! Lovely food, company, service, and rooms. The area is right near local restaurants, a beer garden, and easy access to the lovely end of the Riverwalk. I was in Lily on the first floor and felt both at home... More

Perhaps the most sophisticated, yet extraordinarily friendly inn my wife and I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. Every detail - from bath products to silver napkin rings at the breakfast table - carefully chosen to enhance the guest experience. WiFi, Apple TV, Netflix for in-room entertainment ... along with a lovely second floor veranda where we shared a... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. The staff made us feel very welcome and helped us celebrate our anniversary. They provided suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Breakfast was delicious everyday and had a fun story to do with each meal. The house is beautiful and has many personal touches that allow you to feel at home.... More
