“Wonderful destination”
Reviewed February 16, 2011

I have stayed at the Arbor House several times for business trips to San Antonio. The suites are large, comfortable, and charming. Outside by the fountain is a lovely restful oasis where you can visit or relax. Breakfast is just right and (free) internet service is reliable.

This B&B is a great value for the money. Owner Ron Stinson and property manager Adolph make you feel right at home. The location is quiet but very close to San Antonio hot spots. Highest recommendations for all travelers!

Historic rooms based around the theme of Texas history and famous 19th century Texans (eg. Crockett, Bowie, Houston). An excellent, abundant breakfast was provided each morning. Within easy walking distance of the RiverWalk and close walk to the Alamo and Texas Intercultural Museum.

Arbor House is actually a collection of 4 old houses-very pleasant setting. We had two upstairs rooms-the Bowie and Bonham suites. The Bowie has its own private balcony. Each of the suites has its own bathroom and separate sitting area. Very quiet, and an easy walk to the Riverwalk.

The downside might be the continental breakfast-if you are expecting a prepared breakfast. However, if you prefer not to see anyone, then having the breakfast basket delivered outside your door in the morning is ideal. Our rooms had refrigerators and coffee makers.

My husband (to be, at the time) and I were looking for a venue for a small wedding. Along with family in town/state and others coming from 4 other states, we thought it would be nice to have a downtown venue so they could enjoy the San Antonio Christmas night life. 30 guests in all, we wanted a quick ceremony, a place to have a good meal brought in and a place to rest our heads at the end of the night. We looked up B&B - San Antonio and found several that looked interesting. Our first stop was nice but way more than the budget we had anticipated and it didn't even include rooms. Drove by a few other places and then we found Arbor House Suites and B&B. We stopped and spoke with Ron (owner) and he was absolutely wonderful. We booked his entire place (3 houses, 7 rooms) and stayed within our budget. We were married on the beautiful grounds, had tables and chairs brought in and a caterer. Ron was so friendly and accommodating that by the time the date came around he was just another friend at our wedding. His staff (Asael and others) were very nice and helpful. Our stay was very enjoyable, a variety of rooms all nicely decorated for the season. Great location nicely tucked away from the crowds but definitely convenient to all the night life the Riverwalk has to offer. We look forward to staying again.
So thx to all the staff again for all the wonderful memories, and will see you soon.

Because of the unique welcome and attention to all our needs, my sisters and daughter and I felt right after our arrival that we had become a part of the special world of San Antonio. The house in which we lived was a beautifully furnished old glory which conveyed a sense of glamour and was also very comfortable. The four houses of the Arbor Houses form an enclosure around a lovely garden full of flowers and birds which is a welcome oasis from the hustle of the nearby city. The hosts saw to every small detail to make us feel at home, including the breakfast delivered each morning in a picnic basket ouside our doors, and the friendly and helpful answers they gladly provided to all our questions about San Antonio and the surroundling areas. This is a worderful choice for anyone looking for a unique travel experience.

Charming and quaint old fashion town houses built around a lovely court yard. The street was quiet and the breakfast was wonderful. I would stay here again.

The four buildings are fabulous. Rooms are large and well-decorated. The outside areas are perfect for relaxing. It's so close to everything!

The owner and staff think of everything to assure comfort and enjoyment for their guests. I have no reservations about recommending this B&B to anyone.
