We love staying at this B&B where we stayed on our wedding night. The one-room guesthouse provides solitude even though it is within the vibrant Uptown Dallas area. We love that we can stay in a peaceful place, yet walk to a number of restaurants along with other Uptown residents and visitors. This is a benefit because parking can be tricky, especially on the weekends. The last two times we stayed, there was construction going on that had us frustrated, but only temporarily. We had unfortunate timing. The breakfast NEVER disappoints. It is always beautiful AND delicious. We will be back each year as long as possible!
This really is a lovely place to stay at. The house is beautiful with so much history and the owners are a delight. But in fact the real diamond of the Daisy Polk is the chef, Michael. His breakfasts are so tasty and varied and you can while away hours just chatting to him. I couldn't recommend this bed and breakfast more - stay there whenever you're in Dallas! So much nicer than anaemic hotel with no character and unfriendly staff.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We had such a wonderful time. Jim is a great host - talking to him is like chatting with an old friend. He does an amazing job ensuring that everything is perfect for your stay. He even got us dinner reservations at a wonderful local restaurant including a complimentary appetizer. We loved visiting with the alpacas, the great pyrenees, and especially the really friendly cats. Our cabin was comfortable, cozy, and private. It felt like we were in our own little world. It snowed the night of our stay, and sitting in the hot tub in the snow was the perfect way to spend our evening. This was probably the most relaxing place I've ever stayed. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves animals and nature and is looking for a place to get away from it all without having to worry about anything.
We were in Dallas from November 9 to 12 November,after new York and Miami,came from Russia!Hotel Alla's Historical Bed & Breakfast, Spa & Cabana can be found on the Internet,struck the interior of the hotel,you will be in the Museum,slept on the antique bed, like a Princess!We are tired of the big hotels, where you are one of hundreds of clients,Alla feel at home!Delicious and healthy Breakfast(I was a kid), garden,Jacuzzi!We have a very remarkable impression about America with such hospitable people, as Alla!
The location was awesome! Never once had to use our vehicle. The room was great too. There could be some improvements on cleanliness but nothing major. I'm pretty easy on that. Any place is usually cleaner than my house! Breakfast was good, however, I wasn't a huge fan of the brunch on Sunday. Some of it was rather fancy and it wasn't labeled so I wasn't sure what it all was or was for. So the positives are the location and the room. the not as positives (but not negative, rather areas for improvement) are the cleanliness and the Sunday brunch.
We stayed two nights and the operators are really good folks. You will enjoy the alpacas, they are super quirky and cool. Very hospitable treatment here! Happy camper here! -Brock
We usually stay in "stand-alone" b&b's for the privacy factor. We really enjoyed our stay in this older home. Never heard our neighbors. The bed was very comfortable and the food, particularly, was outstanding. We will recommend Locust Street Inn to our friends.
We have stayed here twice, in two different rooms. We returned after the first visit because we felt welcomed, well accomodated, and catered to. The inn keeper is knowledgable about the area and was even able to direct us to a driver for the night at a reasonable cost. Our second visit was enjoyable as well. The breakfast was fabulous from the herbed sausage, peach pancake, seasoned potatoes, and rolls. The house was full and the company was enchanting; ranging from within the Dallas/Fort Worth area to returning customers from Australia! I know we will be back again!
We go to Dallas every year for a Cowboys football game and this year we decided to try a B and B. This was a lovely property in a quiet residential neighborhood. Very accommodating, clean and totally met our needs. We plan to return next year.
The Corinthian Inn is a lovely house with a gracious host. The room was decorated with care to preserve the theme of a grand manor, the bed was very comfortable. The only problem was the temperature -- the air conditioning blew too cold, so that we had to plug in a space heater. The breakfast was beautifully presented and tasty. Cookies and sweet breads were always available. The Inn was located within a block of a bus route to downtown. We would definitely stay at the Corinthian Inn again.
My partner and I, along with 2 friends from out of town, rented two rooms for the Halloween festivities in the Gayborhood right around the corner from the Daisy Polk. It was very loud due to the music, but that's why we were there! The Daisy Polk has private parking which is a huge benefit for any major event happening in the Gayborhood. This property is romantic and there are TONS of restaurants nearby, along with dance clubs, bars, the public library and a grocery store all within walking distance. We stayed in the main house, our room was very nice and the bed extremely comfortable! I loved the antique furniture and the beauty of the entire property is amazing. Continental breakfast was a waffle with fresh fruit, coffee, and juice. A full breakfast menu is available for an additional $20. I will pick the Daisy Polk from now on, rather than staying at the Warwick Melrose Hotel. Wayne & Patrick were very nice and accommodating hosts, thank you!
Gorgeous home in the Oaklawn area close to everything! Amazing service and the accommodations exceeded out expectations! The value of the room was better than the gamble of Priceline or hotels.com! We paid $129 and got free parking fabulous breakfast and the convenience of being around the event we were attending¿¿
We were celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary and stayed at the Nancee Gee Cottage. Check in and check out was quick and easy. Bed was soft and comfortable. TV was great. It had cable and a DVR and it was placed perfectly for watching in bed. Lots of pillows to prop up with. Loved that it had a decent sized mini frig and microwave and coffee maker. Good water pressure in the shower. The hot tub was private and a nice way to end the evening. Jim made sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast in our room was NICE! We love sleeping in. The animals on the property were fantastic! We loved them ALL. Valentino was our favorite alpaca though. Very friendly and affectionate. Loved petting him. Loved watching the Great Pyrenees "work" and protect the herd. Do the "alpaca experience". It was loads of fun and very informative. Loved spending time with Jim's personal dogs, Cookie the schnauzer, Rascal the schnoodle and BBA (grin) (the standard poodle). I made friends with a black cat too. Watching the 2 kinds of geese (about 7 total) waddling around was amusing. There were ducks in the pond. My husband got to get in some fishing time while I walked around petting and watching animals. Love the fountain in the pond and fountains in the gardens by the office and bar. Love the gardens and lights.Lots of fun things to look at in the gardens. Fun decor. Very pretty at night. Enjoyed visiting with everyone at the outdoor bar at the end of the evening. I was looking for quirky and fun and quiet and romantic and I found it all in one place. I was so glad we stayed 2 nights. Bring your sense of humor and be prepared to laugh.
Wife and I stayed for 3 nights celebrating our 11th anniversary. Had a great time! Breakfast - served in bed - was superb. My wife is an animal lover and really enjoyed spending time with the alpacas. Overall quite a memorable experience!
We almost couldn't believe there was a B&B among some of the finest dining and bar venues in Dallas. What a beautiful place to stay...all of the instructions were clear and always felt like the owners were a call away if needed. Our room was spacious and one of the cleanest places we've stayed. Thank you for offering Bailey's to folks like us--truly an Uptown experience:)
From the minute we arrived, we knew our stay would be full of fabulous experiences. Walking in the door, the beautiful decor' takes you back to an earlier era. We were given a tour of the house and told to make ourselves at home to the canisters of fresh-baked cookies, candies, wine, and refrigerated beverages. Our room, the Presidential Suite, was more than we ever could have expected...spacious, comfortable, and full of amenities. Each morning the breakfast were scrumptious and the hospitality and conversations with other guests made us feel right at home. Dan and Laurel were always available to offer suggestions for sightseeing and delicious eateries. We highly recommend the Corinthian Bed and Breakfast to anyone that is looking for a place to celebrate a special event or just a place to getaway. We so anxiously await our next stay...Two thumbs up to the Corinthian!
We tried Alla's B&B almost 2 years ago and had a fantastic time. The house was clean and filled with things from all different era's (Enjoyed watching the Olympics on an original black and white TV). Alla herself is charming and you can tell she truly loves what she does. But above all, we remember that breakfast. I am a breakfast enthusiast and this was the best meal I have ever had. I have had fresh sourdough in San Francisco, fish tacos in Key West Florida, and shrimp gumbo in Louisiana, and nothing compares to this home made breakfast. Everything she can is grown by her, she gets up at 5am to make it, and the spread is incredible. Everything paired well with everything else, and the jellies were just delicious. The best part, we didn't need to eat for 26hrs straight! And we weren't even bloated like one would expect. Just the shear amount of vitamins and nutrients in the meal held us over until the next breakfast. We can still taste it sometimes. So if you are even thinking about getting the breakfast you NEED to. Great experience all around. Thanks Alla!
You cannot go wrong staying at the Daisy Polk Inn. The owners are friendly and helpful at all times! The inn is clean, quite and very comfortable. I love the historic feel of the main house and the cottage. I really recommend the cottage because it is a great way to meet other guests. You will be glad you chose this inn as your home away from home while visiting Dallas, Texas!
My husband and I stayed with Alla for three nights in September. She is quite the hostess- charming, considerate, welcoming & a terrific cook! We loved our delicious breakfasts. Her B&B is filled with lovely antiques, and Alla will give you your own personal tour. Alla's husband, Rick, is a great guy, too. Duncanville is a nice little area right outside of Dallas- a quick and easy drive on the interstate. Alla and Rick recommended a great little Italian restaurant for dinner our first night- it was in walking distance of the B&B. Alla's B&B is a comfortable alternative to impersonal hotel chains.
Had a great experience met up with an old friend he wasn't too impressed but, I definitely had a good time loved the homemade breakfasts and casual talk. was my first B&B experience. I will make sure I stay here on my next trip to Dallas Thanks again for the outstanding experience, KG
I stay here routinely as our corporate office is located nearby and the location is very convenient for me. The rooms are beautifully appointed and are a great value compared to other hotels in the area. They are always clean and the coffee is the best! The owners are very friendly and accommodating when I need to extend my stay on short notice. Highly recommended!!!
