Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stayed the long weekend at Arbor House over the 4th. It is comfortable, homey and very reasonably priced compared to a 2 room hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfasts were delicious and more than we could eat. It is only a block from the riverwalk and La Vallita. The beds are new with very good support. The rooms are pretty soundproofed. It is off the high traffic streets and very quiet. It was featured in July's Texas Highways magazine, and rightly so! It was fun to stay in an historic house!

Room Tip: The Davy Crockett suite has a LARGE covered balcony with an unobstructed view of the Tower of the Am...

Our stay at the Arbor House was a memorable anniversary getaway...the host put us up in the "Honeymoon Suite" which was very spacious and had all the amenities. The Suites are historic and all rooms are named after defenders of the Alamo with brief history notes in each suite. The garden/patio is beautifully adorned with greenery and flowering plants. There is a cozy hot tub and a special continental breakfast basket delivered to your door in the morning with more than ample food. The location is quaint in the Historic district of San Antonio and so close to many attractions and the Riverwalk...Wonderful hosts that will bend over backwards for you! Will be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms or suites are uniquely decorated and comfortable.

I stayed at the Arbor House for the Fourth Of July holiday and had a wonderful experience....there was a fireworks show within view at HemisFair Park. The property is downtown... a few blocks from the Riverwalk. The parking is free, the service is great, continental breakfast brought to your door, spacious rooms, and the staff is very friendly. I have stayed at the Arbor House several times and highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

After a terrible experience at the Hyatt Place Riverwalk from which I walked out even before i got to my room, I walked in at the Arbor House Bed and Breakfast San Antonio. I did not have a Reservation but Mr. Stinson was kind enough to get me a room in his premises. As I entered the room I has breath taken by the charm of it. Every detail is just in place. Clean, neat, just like home. Rooms are big, with all the amenities you might need and more. There is a microwave oven, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, and every morning breakfast is delivered in anime picnic basket. Bagels, cheese, meremelade, fruit, butter, muffins. Great coffee.

The garden is nice, a great fountain welcomes all types of birds. The staff is very helpful. One more thing, you will be just walking distance from all mayor attractions at Riverwalk and La Villita.

While in San Antonio, you just can't miss the Arbor House Inn And Suites .

The rate is the same as the Hyatt but there is NO comparison. I will encourage private business instead of huge chain hotels with lots of publicity and no service.

Come visit you won't regret it, you will come back always!

Let's start with, I was arriving a day earlier than I had planned so I called ahead and was told no problem, they could accommodate me and someone would meet me with a key for my suite. Upon arrival, no one was around so I called the owner who was having dinner somewhere but said he would arrive shortly. When he did arrive he began telling me all about the place while chewing tobacco and spitting in a cup.YUK. These are very old buildings hence the amenities aren't the best. When I tried to find the thermostat to set the air conditioner it was inconveniently located outside my room in the hallway. The light switch for the bedroom was in the bathroom. Most times when I went to the office it was locked and no one was there. The guest parking spaces were located under power lines that birds roosted on so every morning I had to wash the bird droppings off my car. As another reviewer put it, it should be called a bed and basket instead of a bed and breakfast because every morning a basket containing two muffins, two bagels, and two dishes of fruit salad were set outside our door. It is conveniently located to downtown but next time I'll opt for a chain hotel where I'll get good service and know what to expect

arborhaus, Owner at Arbor House Inn And Suites, responded to this review, July 5, 2013
This customer was cranky from the start. He could not find anything he liked. My staff bent over backwards to please him. All a potential customer has to do is read the other reviews to really see what an experience is like at the Arbor House. Most all customers are kind and polite not this one. We were glad to see him go and he is definitely not welcome back. By the way I do not and never have chewed tobacco!

We chose Arbor House because of its proximity to the Alamodome and the reasonable rates, but we will return because of several other reasons. The owner Ron and manager Adolph were gracious and accommodating, the James Bonham suite was quaint and clean, and the location was secluded and quiet even though it was in the downtown area. A bountiful continental breakfast was waiting at our door at 8:00 a.m., and the rooms have mini refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers. Free wifi is available with a password, but bring your hairdryer! On our next visit we hope to take advantage of the beautiful courtyard area.

A fabulous quiet B&B just a couple of minutes walk to the Riverwalk. Great for exploring central San Antonio on foot. Wonderful suite with a sense of real character. Warm welcome and great host. No hesitation recommending!
