Celebrating 80 in style

5 on November 21, 2014

Eva's Escape at the Gardenia Inn was the perfect setting to celebrate our mothers 80th Birthday. From the moment we (21) ladies stepped inside we were welcomed with open arms.The dining room was beautiful . Fresh flowers set the tone for a special evening. Mrs. Karen and family made us feel right at home. The food was very good and the fruity tea was great. Thanks Deborah for wonderful evening. Mom, friends and family are still talking about Eva's Escape! I will be back. Trellia


Lovely place

Wonderful B&B south of the Riverwalk area. We stayed in the Magnolia room on the second floor, which gave us access to a nice verandah - a nice place to relax in the summer heat! The food was delicious and they graciously accommodated our dietary needs. There's also evening snacks as well as complimentary cold water and soda. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Riverwalk area, during which we felt safe, even at night. There are many restaurants and bars within a block or two. Everyone was so pleasant and we felt very comfortable and at home.

No stone is left unturned in the detail the innkeeper (Deborah) puts into everything. I love this B&B and this was my 2nd time. I plan to return when in the area again. If there is anything you need, it is there. Her breakfasts are amazing and she has complementary wine and a snack available each evening. Beautiful Inn with a great location in the King William District.


Relaxing getaway

4.4 on February 09, 2014

Glad we found this on bedandbreakfast.com -- we couldn't have been happier with our four-night stay. Breakfast was delicious every morning, and nicely varied. Tasteful decor. Very gracious service by a staff that didn't go overboard and didn't invade our privacy/time in any way. We'd definitely go back. My husband and I stayed the first three nights in the first-floor bedroom, which was a large room with a large bed and a tiny bathroom. No stairs, so probably pretty attractive to older travelers. There was a rare cold spell in San Antonio, so the heating duct adjacent to that room did make some noise -- as soon as I mentioned that the owner gave us earplugs. Because that room was already booked by someone else for our last night, we switched to a smaller room on the second floor. A bigger bathroom, and blissfully quiet all night.


A fantastic stay

Eva's escape exceeded my expectations. While attending a conference, I had the pleasure of great company, a terrific host, and local appeal. Much better than staying in yet another hotel room.


Great Lodging, Great People, Great Location

5 on December 01, 2013

We had a great stay at Eva's. The rooms and the entire property were beautiful, Deborah and her staff were warm, welcoming, and helpful, and the location is perfect. You aren't in the hustle and bustle of town, but you can get to the Riverwalk by foot in less than 10 minutes. We would absolutely stay here again!


Absolutely great!

5 on July 14, 2013

Absolutely beautiful Bed & Breakfast inside and out! And the staff, especially Deborah and Nola, could not have been more pleasant, helpful and professional. Located in the beautiful King William District of San Antonio, it is within walking distance of excellent restaurants and entertainment. Also a beautiful two and a half block walk to the Riverwalk. This part of the Riverwalk is not the crowded commercial part, but a beautiful stroll along the river through the historical neighborhood of San Antonio. Very quiet and safe all day and night. But then a 10 minute walk to the commercial part if you desire. The house is beautifully decorated and has all the accommodations. And the breakfast is superb. If you're going to San Antonio, we highly recommend Eva's Escape. The price is very reasonable and everything is first class. You won't be disappointed.


This place has it all!

5 on June 24, 2013

I would say this place has it all! Comfort, Elegant, Friendly, Spacious and Location. You are minutes from everything if you can get out of your comfortable bed. Downtown/Riverwalk with in minutes walking. Bars, Restaraunts, Cafe's on the same block. What ever your visit or stay is about you will get it here. Ms. Deborah and Rosemary her housekeeper were amazing. They are very friendly and take their time to make sure your stay is perfect. My wife and I stayed in the Lavender room which had an opening to the veranda. King Bed, Clawfoot tub/shower which was awkward but romantic and nostalgic, and it's own AC unit so you can control your own rooms temp. Breakfast comes with an uplifting story about why and where Ms. Deborah got the reciepe/idea. I would say my best Inn stay I have ever had and my wife and I make a drive from Florida to California every year in June or July so we have had plenty. Thank you Deborah!


Great San Antonio Experiance

4.4 on June 05, 2013

The innkeeper, Deborah, and housekeeper, Roseanne, were delightful ladies and made our stay very enjoyable. The home was very well appointed and extremely clean and well maintained. The breakfast was very good and no one went away hungry! The location is very well situated to downtown San Antonio and the river walk. Good restaurants are within walking distance and the river walk is only 2 blocks away. For those that enjoy walking/jogging/running this is really a great location as there are miles of beautiful River Walk trails just down the street. I would add that we stayed in the only ground floor room (Lily) and it has a very small bathroom. If/when we return we will definitely choose one of the upper floor rooms. Great stay and we highly recommend anyone planning a San Antonio vacation or business trip.
