I stayed at Sara's B&B (in the Tyler Room) for a long weekend in June (6/4/04 - 6/6/04). I've traveled a lot, throughout the U.S. and internationally, and have stayed at a variety of places. Sara's was the most disappointing place that I have stayed.
When we arrived, the check-in was disorganized and unhelpful (so much for southern hospitality!). The room was warm and muggy -- yes this was Houston in June, but I would assume that air-conditioning should be able to take care of that. The private roof access was very disappointing. Once we got up to the roof, we found a deteriorating, dirty widow's walk covered with dead leaves and branches, without any chairs (not that it would have been an enjoyable place to sit in that state.) The breakfast on Sunday was wholly un-impressive.
Maybe we caught them on an off-weekend -- there was a wedding that was going on in the B&B that same weekend (on June 5) and the B&B owners may have been spending all their time and attention readying the place for that.
However, that still wouldn't explain the poorly-kept widow's walk and the hot and muggy room.
I would never recommend this place to anyone.
