This turn-of-the-century style architecture was originally constructed as a family residence and used later as a fraternity house. In 2010, the building was completely rehabilitated and initially used as a real estate office. The Thornton Inn features five guests rooms with private baths. Each modern room offers in-room LED HDTV, WiFi. We serve a full breakfast in the dining room each morning and provide refreshments each afternoon. Special Events available include High Tea.

My husband and I spent the weekend away at the Thornton Inn bed-and-breakfast. The owners were very hospitable. The food was delicious. The home was immaculate. Will definitely visit the Thornton Inn again!

Wow...we loved this place. Great people who own it and extra friendly service. What a nice experience we had overall the weekend of the FSU/OSU football game. We will be back in January, hopefully, when FSU makes it back to Jerry's World for the NCAA National Football Championship game!

Wish we could have spent more time...

We reall enjoyed everything at The Thornton Inn, but we're not able to spend as much time there because of our plans we had. Everyone was pleasant and it was a relaxed atmosphere that I wish we would have had more time to enjoy. Breakfast was great and got our day started right! Thanks for everything!

Altogether Lovely

From the moment I walked in, my five senses were delighted! The Inn is beautiful to look at. Everything is clean and spacious. The updated look is pleasing. It was hard to decide which room to choose! The smell of the kitchen was AMAZING! I couldn't wait to be able to taste the wonderful items that would be prepared during our stay. For breakfast, we had more than enough to eat and it was served with smiles and generosity. We chose this Inn to have a simple get away to enjoy quite time. During our stay, it was just what we needed. Even when we went out in the morning to enjoy the beautiful porch, it was still nice. The room decor has an "at home" feel. The robes and towels are so soft and plush. The bedding smelled fresh and clean the moment we got settled in. And, finally, the service was wonderful! We felt like part of the family. Anything we needed or had questions about was immediately taken care of. The Inn keepers have precious hearts that are willing to serve! I certainly recommend Thornton Inn! You'll love it!

Never had this happen before

You can only imagine our surprise when we arrived at The Thornton House to find a note on the door saying that they are under new management. As you can imagine all kinds of red flags were now going up. It was quickly apparent that the previous Inn Keepers not only left, but took at least 50% of the furnishings, dishes, lamps, decorations... with them. Don't get me wrong... this is a beautiful house. It's just 50 - 60% empty and certainly lacking the Jim and Debbie feature most often bragged about in ALL other reviews. The new owner, Sunny was very friendly and her new cook did an excellent job jumping in and putting together breakfast. Sadly though, neither are seasoned Inn Keepers or Hosts. We locked up our room and headed off to try and find a restaurant that would make the trip better. I was amazed to come back and find every light in the house turned off, except for the light in our bedroom which I could see was on because our locked bedroom door was now unlocked and wide open. The rest of the house remained unlit and dark for the remainder of our stay. I'm not sure if they were trying to save money, or if this was simply another area, like not knowing the internet password, where they just didn't know any better. At breakfast our host explained that they have new furniture, dishes, lamps and other items ordered and that they will be even better than they were before. For now, "We are just trying to get by." I don't doubt her as she seems quite capable, however I couldn't help but feel we were seriously taken advantage of by being charged full price to stay at a B&B that was running at 25%. After being over charged so badly, without the slightest attempt to offer a correction or adjustment, I do not see us staying here again or suggesting others stay here even if this Inn gets back on it's feet. Right now you'll be paying to stay in a mostly empty house run by a realtor attempting to be an Inn Keeper.

A Surprising New Find in Arlington!

The new kid on the block, the Thornton Inn B & B is a delight to find in the heart of Arlington. The rooms were lovely with heavenly bedding, all new renovations to the home with stone floor shower and architectural detail highlights. The service was friendly, personal and attentive. And, the food? Two words - mango crepes. Incredible! A wonderful treat and a great way to spend some time together with my husband.

We'll be back!

With all hotels near Globe Life Park booked, we had to get creative during our recent trip to Arlington! We do not often stray from high-end chain hotels because of the consistency but decided to try to Thornton based on reviews and their beautiful website and photos. We had such a wonderful experience! Extremely comfortable, nicely-appointed rooms, a great afternoon welcome reception with snacks, the inn keepers are sweet and hospitable - it was exceptional. We enjoyed rocking on the front porch after the ballgame and an out-of-this-world breakfast in the morning! We'll definitely be back to the Thornton!

Amazing romantic getaway

My husband and I went to a Rangers game and wanted a nice, relaxing place to stay afterwards that had a romantic feel instead of hotel feel. It was perfect!

The most enjoyable stay at any such establishment. Wonderful people treat you like friends instead of customers. Great food for breakfast and nighttime snacks. Nicest, cleanest and best decorated rooms we had ever seen. Great location - easy access to everything in Arlington, Texas. We will return as often as possible and we definitely recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for quality at a very reasonable rate. I guess you could say it's FANTASTIC !!!! Thank You - Jerry & Mary Ann Stark
