I cannot say enough about how great our stay was here. My wife and I stayed here for a week during our visit. It was very very clean and Lilly was so wonderful. It was close to everything and we could walk to everything. Every morning for breakfast we had a three course meal. My wife doesn't sleep well away... More

Mary and I celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary at the Brackenridge House and plan to be back next year for our 50th. The room was fantastic, the location of the B&B in the King William district couldn't be better, and the breakfast was outstanding as well. Thank you, Lily, for everything!

This is not the first time I have stayed here and it won't be the last. The accommodations were wonderful. It was cozy and comfortable with everything you could ask for. I loved the snacks that were provided (especially the butter pecan melts) and the breakfast was fabulous as usual. Roland and Lily gave great recommendations for nearby sites to... More

We had the good fortune to stay at the Brackenridge Bed and Breakfast over the Memorial Day weekend for a family reunion. We worked with the owner, Lily Lopez, to rent the entire house. It was outstanding. The rooms are beautiful and Lily is very accommodating. The house is a treasure and is perfectly located to the sites of the... More

My family first experience at a Bed and Breakfast. I was really impressed. Lilly was very nice and helpful. She was the perfect host. Breakfast on the balcony was memorable. Great memories. When we are in San Antonio; Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast will be our place to stay.

We loved our stay at this b&b. Lily was very nice and accommodating. Our room was very large and quiet. We had a room with a private entry to the back of the property. The room was nicely decorated with period furniture and beautiful antiques. The shower/tub were also nice. We love visiting the King William district because it is... More

Stayed at Brackenridge House rather than in an anonymous hotel downtown. Just what we wanted/needed. Peace and quiet and breakfast at leisure on the verandah - what more could you ask? Hummingbird was a perfect home for four days. Thanks Lucy. Next time we're in San Antonio, we will stay with you again for sure. Oh, and the swing seat... More

This was one of the best places we stayed in during our numerous trips in the USA and Canada. The first impression we felt when we parked our car in front is that of arriving home. The location, neatness and beauty of this house is refreshing when compared to hotels. It is located in one of the nicest neighborhoods in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the first bed and breakfast in famous historic King William District, the Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast has been pampering guests since 1986. Our rooms and suites are furnished in antique regal Victorian furniture with comfortable beds and the modern conveniences you would expect to find in a first-class hotel. All have en suite full bathroom and private entrance. Your stay at the Brackenridge house comes with a full three course hot breakfast prepared fresh every morning especially for you. For your enjoyment and convenience, all our rooms have mini-refrigerators stocked with complimentary drinks and ice, microwaves and coffee makers. The front porch and upstairs veranda invites you to relax in a rocking chair or porch swing while watching the horse drawn carriage goes by, enjoying a glass of wine or a good book. Immerse yourself in our hot tub in the rear garden area, it is the perfect way to start your day or unwind after a day of sightseeing. Available year round. Before retiring for the night enjoy a delicious Godiva truffle with a glass of cream sherry, pop a bag of popcorn and grab a movie from our extensive selection of DVDs or try one of our delicious signature home baked cookies. The Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast provides the advantages of being two blocks away from the River Walk, five blocks from the Alamo and the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center and a short walk from El Mercado and the Alamodome without the noise and congestion of downtown. The house is close to many famous and wonderful local restaurants offering delicious and excellent meals. Our goal at the Brackenridge House is for you to experience Texas hospitality at its best, and make you feel like the special person you are. ... more   less
