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.

Enjoyed Our Stay!

Beautiful B&B! Nice rooms, spacious bathrooms with nice hot showers. The owners are very friendly and the location is convenient. We were able to park off street which was a plus. We enjoyed our breakfast and there is coffee, hot chocolate and tea available in a central visiting area. The candy bowls throughout were fun! We could hear traffic now and then in the early night, but by around 10 pm it quieted down. I would definitely recommend this cozy place. We plan to go back!

Great place to stay

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.

Amazing room and accommodations

My wife and I stayed at the Thornton Inn while we attended an event at AT&T stadium. The room was better than any hotel room I stayed in and the accommodations were amazing. Simple Uber pick up and drop off and the AC works great if your always warm like me
