The Thornton Inn Bed and Breakfast

719 W. Abram Street , Arlington, Texas, TX 76013 USA (Show map)


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.

Thornton Inn Stay

4.6 on January 18, 2017

We enjoyed our stay very much here and Terry went above and beyond to make us breakfasts that met our dietary restrictions. It was my first stay at a B&B and I thought the house and the rooms were beautiful and very clean. It felt like home. The value is extraordinary as well. The only thing I want to mention is that if you are looking for a place to keep to yourself a B&B may not the right place as the host was very chatty. He's very nice and well meaning, but I do know that I can figure out how to work the remotes myself without an extended, somewhat condescending, lesson. Other than that slight annoyance, it was a wonderful stay!

The Best!

Staying here was simply the best experience. Terry the proprietor was the most gracious and welcoming host I could have hoped for. The location is convienent to the university and sporting events. Several great restaurants are also nearby and a big mall with an ice arena just down the road. Hot breakfast daily and a lovely vintage feel with all the modern amenities.

This was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had. Terry and Sunny were wonderful and took great care of me. I look forward to returning with my family whom I think would love the experience as well.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

It was a beautiful bed and breakfast. Enjoyed the owners they were very friendly. Didn't get our room serviced daily or did not get clean towels in our room daily. The breakfast was good, but could of changed up the eggs a bit, Loved the atmosphere of the place. Had a great time.

So Glad to Find This Gem in Arlington

5 on September 29, 2016

My husband and I love to go to Texas Rangers Baseball games, but we do NOT love to stay in hotels. We always try to stay in B&B's when we travel, and now we have found the Thornton Inn B&B in Arlington which makes our going to Arlington more often a possibility - we LOVE it! From the comfort of furnishings in all common areas and availability of a coffee pot, to the perfect appointed rooms and wonderful breakfasts (my husband's favorite of anywhere we go), there is absolutely no reason not to stay at the Thornton Inn! The hosts are doing it well!

A Worthwhile Stay at Thornton Inn B&B

I booked my room online, which was quick and easy. The staff accommodated all of our requests and made our stay a memorable and comforatable one. We definitely have plans to book the Thornton Inn B&B again.

This is the place to stay

The owners are warm and friendly the rooms and decor are exceptional. They go above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable. This is the only place we will stay from now on when we are in the Dallas area!

I love this place
