Quick sisters weekend

3.6 on April 14, 2015

My sister and I took a quick trip to San Antonio and stayed at A Yellow Rose.We stayed in the carriage house which was homey and clean. My sister took the bed and had a great sleep and I slept on the couch and also slept well. Some of the furnishings are a little old but comfortable. We had the full breakfast the 1st morning which was awesome and the continental breakfast the 2nd which was also very good. The B&B is within a pleasant walking distance to the Riverwalk and the Alamo where we spent most of our day. There are a lot of places to choose from for dinner and lunch right near the house. The proprietors are very friendly and accommodating. All in all we had a great time and our experience there was excellent.

Weekend in King William historical district

Stayed in the Bourdeaux room. It was nice and within walking proximity to many top notch restaurants. We went to the river walk one night, stayed for about an hour, then promptly high tailed it back to the historical district away from all of the excessively tourist attractions and row after row of mediocre restaurants. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

We arrived in San Antonio in the late morning, so appreciated being able to park our car behind the B&B. We had the Bordeaux room with the tea/coffee/juice choice. It is a very spacious room, and the bathroom is huge! I enjoyed a good soak in the old style tub that night from all our days walking. Its location is excellent since we walked the few blocks to the Riverwalk and followed it to explore the downtown area. It was a very quiet area. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer since we were doing a road trip vacation of Texas.

We had a bit of a mixed reaction to our stay. It was a bit disappointing to realize that there was no common area for guests to gather. We did speak with the hostess several times but it was always with her standing in the doorway of her private section. We did not have a bath mat for the first 2 days of our 3 day stay. The room was very comfortable. Breakfast was Ok with yougurt and cut up fruit. I did like the French press coffee.

Everything from reserving the room to checkin was as smooth as possible. Deb had everything well organized and was terrifically friendly when we met. The neighborhood is beautiful and very charming. We were also able to walk to eat very easily. Lovely weekend all around.

Heart of the Arts District

We came to San Antonio for our sons graduation from Air Force BMT at Lakeland AFB, which is only about a 15 minute drive. We stayed downstairs in the Providence room. This room is nice and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. The room itself was nice and clean and stocked with fresh towels, coffee and juice. We were not able to try the breakfast because we left early every morning. This B&B is located in the King William District. Access to thru Riverwalk is just down the street. There are new restaurants nearby that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Liberty Bar which used to be an old hospital is a great place for drinks. Hot Joy is a great place to get Asian cuisine. Hot Joy also has great drinks. There are a few more outdoor eateries located just down the block from A Yellow Rose on S. Alamo street. Overall, we had a great time. Just wish we had a little more time exploring the area. Definitely tons of gorgeous historical houses to see.

Innkeeper Response
Again, congratulations on your son's huge accomplishment. Lackland parents have become a big demographic for us and I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Thanks!

Comfortable Bed and Breakfast

We stayed at the Yellow Rose during the UIL Basketball Tournament and our stay was excellent. Pricing was in line with other hotels close to the River Walk and the walk was not bad at all. Will definitely stay again.

A Great Stay!

Our stay at the Yellow Rose B&B in the San Antonio King William District was an absolute delight. The accommodations were perfect for our 4 night stay. The location was just close enough to all the city attractions and restaurants. Deb was the perfect host and provided us with a wonderful breakfast each morning. We would definately stay there again. Highly recommended ¿¿
