Happy Honeymoon!

My husband and I stayed in the Beaudeux Room for our honeymoon and we had a lovely time. The room was beautiful with a breakfast nook and large bathroom. It was a pretty place and very clean. The owners were kind and answered all of our questions. It is within walking distance of the Riverwalk and many attractions which made it easy to get around San Antonio. I highly recommend.

Hello, we stayed in the magnolia room and really enjoyed the historic feel of yellow rose and the neighborhood. The bnb is walkable to many of San antonio's attractions and great restaurants. The staff was friendly,willing to answer all of our questions, and responsive to any needs that arose. We would likely stay here again.

Highly recommended

My husband and I stayed at the Provence Room. The decoration is lovely and it was very clean and comfortable. The host let us check in earlier than 3pm because the room was available. It is about 10 - 15 minutes walking from downtown and has free parking in the bed and breakfast or in the street. I would stay there again.

Innkeeper Response

Great Experience!

My husband and I stayed at A Yellow Rose for a couples getaway. Our room was so spacious and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing! We had breakfast in our room every morning. It was so nice to have that just the 2 of us. The owners were so nice and made themselves available for anything we needed. We would definitely return here....hopefully soon!

Everything was as lovely and peaceful as our last visit. Kit was on hand for questions and was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely repeat the visit (again!)

Great neighborhood and proprietors

The room was great, very clean and well furnished in the historic King William district. Located near downtown San Antonio, we walked or biked to many of the local attractions. We opted for the juice breakfast, and it met our expectations. The owners were very kind. I would stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
Our guests have always enjoyed walking in the neighborhood and now with so many bike rentals available many are riding instead of walking through our historic district and on the mission trail. Thank you!

Excellent Idea

being the first time that I stay at a bed and breakfast, it was an excellent experience. Better value would make me use this on a constant basis. Thanks.

Innkeeper Response
I'm so glad you enjoyed your first b&b experience and look forward to more.

A Great Time in San Antonio

The Yellow Rose B&B is a charming place to stay, The owners were so good about providing information and the breakfast that Deb provided was worthy of a five-star restaurant. We loved the Magnolia Room and the B&B pets. We will certainly stay here again.

Lovely place to stay

4.4 on February 27, 2016

A relaxing atmosphere and so convenient for access to the Riverwalk and many restaurants (which is why we chose to not have onsite dining). The owners were discreet in making themselves available and were extremely helpful with information of the area. We can confidently recommend the Yellow Rose as a perfect place to stay.

Let's start this off by saying this is the best bed and breakfast we have stayed in. I'm someone who likes pros and cons lists. We are going to do one now. Cons: Parking - The parking on the street in front of the B&B is a bit tough, and the spaces behind the house are even more so with little room to turn around. Since parking is not something we do often enough for this to be such a huge deal. Old Wood - The upstairs room has quite a few spots of creaking wood from the people walking around up there. It's noticeable but not to the extent that it will keep you up at night. Pros: Room - The look and feel of the room actually feels like a home. It has an older feel to it with the wood and decorations, but it is very well kept. Nothing feels cramped or out of place. Location - As the primary cause of the parking issue, the location is very close to downtown. It is a prime location for anything that you may want to do. The houses are older and look very well maintained. This entire neighborhood has character and an air of history. Food - The breakfast here was absolutely amazing! The first morning we had enchiladas with green chili sauce. There was a side of an egg omelette, fresh fruit, and splendid bread. We were looking forward to the breakfast on the second day more than we were the dinner on the previous evening. Overall this was an A+ experience for my wife and I. We have already recommended this place to all of our family and friends and will continue to do so.
