A fantastic property in a great, historic location. We had a really good room. The hosts are fantastic and provide an amazing breakfast and great service. So many things are provided such as cookies, sodas, advice, and tea and coffee. We would definitely stay here again should we return to San Antonio.

We stayed in the Lilly room and it was beautiful. The bed and pillows were comfortable, which can be hard to find. What really takes Eva's over the edge is Ms. Deborah and her family/staff. The food was fantastic! We were served carrot cake pancakes one morning and an incredible egg dish the next. I can't wait to stay here...

We had a wonderful stay at Eva's Escape. The home is beautifully preserved but has all the modern conveniences we wanted. Deborah was an excellent host and the breakfasts were delicious (especially the red velvet pancakes!). The house is located in the beautiful King William District with many good restaurants nearby and easy access to the River Walk. Free parking...

I had a wonderful stay at Eva’s Escape at the Gardenia Inn in San Antonio.
