This is an excellent B&B. Location is ok, but it is located across from Ft Sam Houston - which is nice. Service and hospitality was best I've seen in a B&B; and breakfast and dining setup was outstanding! The whipped orange juice is unique and very good. We'll definitely be going back the next time we're in San Antonio!

I was so sad to leave! SUPER!!

I absolutely LOVED this place. My husband and I were looking for an affordable place for a getaway for New Years Eve. We have 3 kids so we needed to relax. I was so amazed and we enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to make this a yearly tradition and we will bring our kids. The innkeeper was extremely helpful and nice. He went out of his way to make our stay more than pleasant. Our breakfast was apple crepes, HUGE muffins, cereal, eggs, and the best juice I have ever had! I definitely recommend this place!

step back in time

staying at the Bullis House in San Antonio is like stepping back in time, and that is a good thing. The rooms are fantastic. The colors and furnishings fit exactly with the large, period rooms. The staff is top notch and go far beyond what is expected. I wish I lived there!

Great Value
