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.

Simply Perfect

My boyfriend and I flew in from Canada to watch a cowboys game over the weekend. We arrived late to the Inn, however Terry was very accommodating and helpful. Terry provided a little history of the Inn, which was very intriguing. Our room was very clean and spacious. Bed was super comfortable, the fan on the ceiling provided a refreshing breeze. Bathroom was modern and updated, only downfall was the shower pressure. Towels were super soft. Woke up each morning to the delicious smell of bacon. Breakfast was always filling and satisfying. If your up to it, there are plenty of places to walk to from the Inn, we met some fantastic Texans and had a really terrific time at Oktoberfest. Family dog, Thor, was my favourite as I got some snuggles in after returning from dinner on Saturday night. We walked back to the Inn after the Sunday afternoon game, took us about 20min. Overall, a wonderful place to stay while in Arlington. Hosts are very helpful, engaging and thoughtful. Thank you for a wonderful Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend Terry and Sunny!

Wonderful Stay

Spent two nights at this lovely Inn. Terry and Sunny were both very friendly and very attentive to their guests. The location made it easy to access local points of interest and other dining choices. Would definitely recommend and return to this warm and inviting bed and breakfast.

This Inn is a wonderful & charming place to stay. The history of the house itself is very interesting. Very close to UTA which is convenient for me. Would recommend.

My stay at The Thornton Inn was a wonderful respite after a long day of working. Terry and Sunny were delightful hosts and the breakfasts were tasty and nutritious. I was very comfortable and felt very safe in my room, I will be back on the next business trip. I highly recommend The Thornton Inn Bed and Breakfast.

Can't wait for my next trip!!!

Loved everything about The Thornton Inn. Terry and Sunny are so friendly and caring. The breakfast was outstanding, I loved the personal attention we received during our stay and loved hearing about the history of the The Thornton. Terry gave us fantastic recommendations for dinner and was attentive to anything and everything we needed. We were traveling for business and I have to say the value far exceeded anything we could have gotten at a major chain. Loved the complementary water, beer and wine available if we needed after a long day traveling during our trip. I can't say enough good about the owners and the location. It was my 1st trip to Texas and DFW but this will be my lodging choice anytime I return.

Comfortable, Clean and so Fun

On a business trip, you want easy and comfortable. Terry and Sunny do just that. The breakfast was filling and very enjoyable, the rooms very comfortable and it was a perfect location for our needs. Great restaurants in the area as well. We will be back to the Thornton Inn. Thanks...

Just what we needed!

Everything was absolutely wonderful. I really can't say enough positive things about our experience. The breakfast was out of this world...I have a gluten intolerance and Terry made me gluten free pancakes and they were delicious! The bed was so comfortable, the rooms were beautiful, the home was inviting and serene. We sat in the rocking chairs on the porch, sipping on a complimentary beer, relaxing and getting to know Terry...he is very kind. Our room was right off the porch, it was perfect. Also, the house is walking distance to several restaurants, that was a big plus for us. Highly recommend! I hope we get to go back soon.

Fantastic Experience in the Heart of the City
