Just arrived home from staying two nights at this wonderful B&B. Everything was perfect from our arrival to our departure. Deborah, Yvonne and Rosemary made our stay great. The B&B is close to the riverwalk, easy to walk, one of the best omelets I have ever had. Our first stay, but we will return.

Over the years, we've developed a preference for B&Bs and have stayed at quite a few. Eva's Escape tops the list for hospitality. From check-in to check-out, the staff was very friendly and informative. The Inn is just beautiful, historic without being stuffy, and very well kept. Our breakfasts both mornings were scrumptious and out of the ordinary (red velvet...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Eva's Escape in mid-April. The location is helpful in that it is in a historic (King William) district only one block from South Alamo Street. This makes it about 1 mile and easy walking to my favourite attraction, The Alamo. There is also a small cafe just across the street, The Mad...

This location was perfect for our Girls Weekend Away. There were 4 of us and we had the top floor suite one night and the two 2nd floor rooms that were joined by the veranda.

We spent the last week in San Antonio on spring break. I did a fair amount of research on tripadvisor looking for the best place to stay and settled on Eva's based on a combination of the fact that I generally prefer B&B's, price, location, and the specific room we picked was a suite which gave our daughter her own...

Cliff- Thank you for your kind words and recommendations! We loved opening our doors to you and your family, and we thank you for choosing us. Even though the college you toured was of no interest, there are many more in the area. It was a pleasure having you as our guests and we hope to see you again.
