The Inn was constructed from 1909-1910, in the Arts & Crafts style, and is beautifully furnished with a wonderful and eclectic mix of period appropriate antiques from all around New England and Europe that date from the mid 19th to the early 20th century, this B&B is truly one of a kind in the North Texas region. The Dickason Cottage, adjacent to the Inn, was constructed in the late 1904 and stands as an updated cousin to Miss Daisy's genteel turn of the century charm. Each morning, delicious breakfasts, with a Southern twist, are served in the original main dining room by our classically trained chef and our guests are invited to choose freely from an extensive menu with almost 30 options. The Daisy is located one block off of Cedar Springs Road about 10 minutes from Love Field and about 30 minutes from DFW International Airport. We offer convenient walking access to many local restaurants, clubs and bars and in addition to quick cab service we are 1 block from key public transportation routes with nearby links to DART metropolitan light rail service.

The rooms were lovely and the inn keepers very knowledgeable about the area. It was an awesome experience.


So much better than a hotel

Travelled to Dallas for a conference and was not looking forward to 3 nights in another hotel. The Daisy Polk Inn offered a very reasonably priced alternative that proved to be much more hospitable, interesting and enjoyable.


great place. great location.

Quite lovely

We enjoyed our stay at Daisy. Patrick and Wayne were very accommodating when we called ahead the day of check-in to see if we could bump our time up a bit, as we were on a road trip and would be arriving earlier than predicted. Patrick welcomed us warmly, gave us a little history of the house and showed us to our room upstairs, the Daisy room, which seemed to be the largest of the three with an ensuite bath. The bath is a little tight, but manageable. The house is beautifully appointed with period furnishings and we thoroughly loved dining in the morning with our included breakfasts prepared by chef Michael. The first day we had waffles, the second pancakes, both with juice and fresh fruit. We do prefer protein with our breakfast, but nonetheless it was so delicious we really didn't miss it. While some reviewers have complained about outside noise (which is why they provide earplugs in the room, I suppose) we only heard the occasional airplane from Love Field, and it certainly wasn't enough to bother us from inside our room. We really loved relaxing on the front porch in the early evening and the great WiFi signal in the room. The only miss for us was a rather hard and uncomfortable bed and cheap, hard pillows (not feather or faux feather). But we would stay at Daisy again without hesitation.


Great place to stay!

Lovely inn and fabulous staff

4.2 on April 19, 2016

The Daisy Polk Inn was one of the nicest properties I've stayed at in a very long time. I stayed with my boyfriend and we had a peaceful visit. We drove up to the Daisy to find a sweet home with a large porch and pretty landscaping. We were met by Patrick and Wayne, the inn-keepers, who were so nice. They took the time to show us around the downstairs and tell us stories about Daisy and different design choices they had made for the remodeling of the house. They showed us to our room, the Reagan Room, which was spacious and airy. There were two comfortable chairs, a huge bed, and a few dressers. The Reagan Room also has sole access to the hall bathroom, which has a great old soaking tub that was a huge relief for our walking-filled days. There is also a shower for those that choose. Breakfast each morning was served by Michael, who was not only a great chef, but was a fountain of knowledge about everything Dallas-related and very easy to talk to. The breakfast itself varied but always had some homemade item (waffle, muffins, etc.) with fresh fruit. Michael also makes THE best cup of coffee ever. We loved the neighborhood that the Daisy was in. It was an easy walk (for us, who come from walking-heavy East coast cities) to the downtown area, museums, restaurants, bars, and other cool little neighborhoods. There are great restaurants within a few blocks for when we wanted to stay close to home. If we didn't want to walk, we took a cheap Uber. If I had to find a negative, I would say that the area around our hotel got pretty loud when the bars/clubs closed at night. My boyfriend got woken up a few times by happy drunk people in the street, but learned to use the earplugs we found in the bathroom (thanks, Daisy!) Overall, we will absolutely visit Daisy again and hopefully stay in the near future!


Enjoyed the ambiance, staff, location, historical architecture and breakfast

We had two rooms in the main house. Great historical architectural and antique furniture - one bed was carved, 1857, from France with super-comfortable mattress. Chef Michael subbed for the owners when we arrived, and was hugely knowledgeable about the Inn and the area. He cooked a very tasty waffle breakfast with fresh blueberries, juices and coffee. He chatted on a wide range of subjects as we ate -- photographic equipment, European visits and places, bed and breakfast differences in the US versus Europe, and the unique history of the Inn. The Inn has a great location minutes from Love Field as well as many Dallas restaurants and night spots, but having your own car would help.


My favorite address in Dallas!

I come to Dallas every few months for work and I always stay at the Daisy Polk Inn. It is authentic, old fashioned in the best way possible and the breakfast is outstanding. This house has a soul! :-)


Perfect Stay

4.6 on January 04, 2016

With a truly thoughtful, attentive staff, our stay at the Daisy Polk Inn has been one of the best Bed and Breakfasts that I have experienced. Arriving late during severe storms, we were greeting and giving a detailed tour of the property. They communicated with us to ensure that we were attended to properly, and remembered the details - such as I only drank tea at breakfast while my friend had coffee and orange juice. The rooms were very clean, and service was seamless. Everyone we came in contact with was extremely nice.
