Two Weeks at the Yellow Rose

4.4 on May 18, 2015

The serene, shaded quiet was delightfully relaxing, and greatly enhanced by the Victorian-esque furnishings - I'm confident I've never slept in commercial lodgings with a four-poster bed before. Am recommending you highly to my colleagues, and would certainly make use of your property again. (Note; 'Dining' was largely NA in my case, since my rooms did not come with a breakfast. I enjoyed the presence of the refrigerator; would have been nice to have had a microwave, as well.)

Love the Yellow Rose!

We initially stumbled on to the Yellow Rose many years ago when all the hotel rooms for the TDA convention were booked. We have been staying here each year since. Each room is unique, and they are always comfortable and clean. Deb and Kit make you feel very welcome. It is sooo quiet here. We never have trouble sleeping at Yellow Rose. In the room, there is only breakfast service (be sure and try it. it is wonderful!), but there are outstanding restaurants within walking distance. If you don't want to eat out every meal, I recommend the Carriage House as it has a full kitchen.

Wonderful stay!

We very much enjoyed our visit to San Antonio, Deb and Kit were excellent hosts. They have a wonderful home, located in a great area for walking, dining or just relaxing.

Another great stay at A Yellow Rose

This is our 3rd stay at A Yellow Rose for our anniversary. As usual, our room was lovely, the setting is quiet, and the location perfect. The area near the B&B has developed in the last few years to include some really top notch restaurants. We didn't get in the car at all during our long weekend stay, everything we wanted to do was within walking distance, including the Riverwalk. Deb is a lovely hostess.

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.

Innkeeper Response
I'm glad your special time together was fun and comfortable. Thank you!

Weekend in King William historical district

4.6 on April 08, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
Staying in this area is oh so different from staying in the middle of the downtown/riverwalk activity. How nice that you discovered that the King William District is the best part of San Antonio!

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.

Innkeeper Response
We try to be specific on the website and on the phone that we don't have a public area. I'm sorry we failed to properly inform you.

Weekend in San Antonio

4.6 on March 25, 2015

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.
