“Great place to stay for the hospital district”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Because the Texas White House is directly across 8th Ave. from Baylor All Saints and I had a 5:00 am show time at the hospital, my husband and I chose to stay here for the night. The exterior of the house, while not "run down", could use a little landscaping or maybe some spiffing up to give it more curb appeal. The interior is beautiful. The furnishings, whether antique, or reproductions were tasteful. Our room was clean, comfortable, and roomy. There was a miscommunication on our arrival time, but Grover, the innkeeper was accommodating, and quickly remedied the problem. Unfortunately, his wife was ill and unable to cook breakfast the next morning, so we were given vouchers for breakfast at The Neighborhood Grill, just down the street. We were disappointed that we missed out on what we heard would be a wonderful breakfast, but there's always next time.
The Texas White House is about as convenient as you can get for access to Baylor All Saints Hospital. There are several other hospitals a very short distance away. It is walking distance to numerous restaurants, convenient to TCU, and also convenient to the Ft. Worth Cultural District.
There were cold drinks and snacks available to us 24 - 7 The only thing I can think to ask for would be access to an ice maker and an ice bucket in our room. The positives definitely overcome the few negatives. I would definitely stay here again should the occasion arise.

I stayed at the Texas White House Bed & Breakfast in April while attending a workshop at Texas Christian University. Everything about the experience was wonderful. Grover and Jaime McMains were so hospitable, and one of them (or perhaps both) is a great cook. For breakfast, I had sliced pear with cinnamon and sugar, freshly baked pear bread and a sausage and egg souffle-type dish.

And I know to whom to attribute the decor: Jaime. She has great taste. My room was decorated with carefully selected antiques and all the comforts you could ask for. And the bed, oh, the bed. So comfy!

The location was also great. For dinner I walked to a restaurant on Magnolia, TCU was just a five-minute drive away, and the B&B is pretty close to I-35 (and you don't have to go through downtown if heading south), so I was able to miss a good chunk of the rush-hour traffic.

I would definitely recommend staying here.

I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. I felt right at home, the breakfast was wonderful. The resturant suggestions were great too. I will be staying there again. It was in a good location for my work, right in the hospital district. Close to downtown Fort Worth. All around a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: I only stayed once and the room was fine, it was the Texas room if I recall. Next time, maybe a dif...

We stayed 2 nights. The room was great, the breakfasts delicious, and Grover was very accommodating and helpful. He had great local restaurant recommendations, and even guided us to a restaurant over the phone when we got lost. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Fort Worth (for TCU football games!).

We stayed 2 nights and arrived earlier than we anticipated (called just before arrival), but Grover and Jamie were ready for us and gracious. They had also been quite accommodating when we thought we needed a late check-in. If you like antiques, you will love this B&B. Our room was spacious and had a large bathroom. They are convenient to downtown and TCU. Coffee was available before breakfast and the porch and backyard swing were great places to hang-out. The only changes we might have enjoyed would be the availability of a brighter light in the room and a grab bar for stepping into and out of the claw-foot tub. The food was very good, attractively presented, and plentiful.

The Texas White House is within a few miles of several tourist spots in Fort Worth. It has a quaintness about it, without losing some of the amenities that I enjoy having at a hotel/B&B (Wireless Internet, TV, etc). The service is excellent, and the breakfast is delicious. The only drawback I noticed is that if you stay in one of the rooms towards the front of the house (which we did), you get quite a bit of street noise. Still, the noise was not overbearing, and I'm willing to overlook it when considering the whole package. Overall, it was a great way to relax while visiting Fort Worth.
