After a night's sleep in a very beautiful historic inn here in San Antonio, we slept late and then headed into town to explore. We're about 2.5 miles from the center of town, but if you know Mike, you know that that meant we were walking ("driving? what for? Only Americans would do that!"). After winding our way through functional, blah …
After four wonderful days in Big Bend, and a few crazy windstorms, we got back on the road across Texas, following route 90 to San Antonio. Along the way, we were stopped twice at Border Patrol stations where Mike had to show his passport to prove that we weren't Mexican illegal immigrants. But here's what we don't understand. When they stopped us …
... at home but for some reason here on & off the highway it seems so much longer, food was good when we eventually get there - especially the naan bread. Then we drive back downtown, $10 to park and we're really close to the riverside walk but it has stopped raining now so it's nice to stretch our legs. This area along the river is really lovely, full of bars and restaurants it must be great in the summer, couldn't find anywhere with live music but settled on a British ...
... throughout the day. Generally, we visit at least one Goodwill and sometimes multiple stores around town. We see who can get the best deal. At some point we will end up at a make-up counter, where we can spend an hour or more just looking. We often hang out or shop until dinner and then we meet the family someplace and enjoy a Mexican dinner. It’s great to have a daughter that is ...

In Dallas George looked forward to seeing the five-level highway interchange. When there is not enough area for roads to work side by side; they have nowhere to go but UP. And up they went... ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 1908 Ayres Inn San Antonio
We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights so we were able to get the feel for the place and the owners, Mike and Hector. If you shy away from B&B because of their floral wallpaper, overly feminine overtones and grandmother-style fabrics, 1908 Ayres is the place for you.
THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!
My partner and I had the opportunity to stay at this newly established B&B....AMAZING....We had the most romantic, fun filled weekend in a long time....The BONHAM was the room of our choice for two days....there were no need for favorite downtown hot spots or any need to go out ...everything we needed was right there in that room....Mike was AWESOME.....he made our stay there evenmore enjoyable by being so helpful with everything.....THIS IS THE ULTIMATE " HOT SPOT"....
Obviously, I am not the first person on tripadvisor to love the 1908 and, after staying there last night, I can understand the prodigious reviews. Mike and Hector are truly gracious hosts who do an exceptional job of making you feel right at home while maintaining an air of privacy to your stay. Accommodations are first class, similar to what you will find in many luxury hotels around the world. On your next trip to San Antonio get off the Riverwalk and explore this charming property and the neighborhoods of SA.
My partner and I truly enjoyed the time we spent at the Ayres 1908 Inn. It is located in a nice neighborhood close to downtown, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to allow for quiet, relaxing time. The owners, Mike & Hector, were friendly and went out of their way to make our stay extra special. We stayed in the Bonham room...from the beautiful large bed that was so comfortable to the bathroom with the Jacuzzi tub and separate glass shower it was an awesome room. We really liked the modern technology (i.e. HD TVs and i-home radio), and how it was all well blended with the era décor. The rest of the Inn was very clean and inviting. They also had a nice selection of foods, including fruit, quiche, cereal and a yogurt parfait that was excellent.
Best B&B Ever
Reserved through B&B website while my house was being painted and it was not a disappointment. Close to a great Mexican Food Resturant, colleges and downtown (about 5-7 mins down Main Street), where I needed to be the next day. Great nights' sleep and I awoke to fresh pastrys, fruit and coffee. I've stayed in several B&B before, but this was the best.
Loved the Ayres INN
Stayed at several B&Bs over the years and this is at the top of the list. Everythig was new, fresh, and of the highest quality. And the house is very very comfortable.
Wow! Loved it!
We stayed at the Inn for one night and I wish it had been longer! I would go to San Antonio just to stay here! Mike was very helpful and attentive. We stayed in the Travis Suite and it was fabulous. Elegant and inviting. I had the best night's sleep and woke up to enjoy a delicious breakfast. I highly recommend the Greek yogurt parfait. Simply divine. I can't say enough great things about our stay and I've been raving about it to everyone I meet. I'm already planning my next trip there. All in all, an incredible stay in an incredible place!
New in town!!
We have stayed in several B&B's across the US and abroad. I can say that my experience here was very nice. Mike and Hector make you feel at home. The accomodations are perfect. We stayed in the Travis Room and the room was very comfortable. The bath area was quite large. They had coffee, teas, and several items available 24 hours. The breakfast was very nice with several types of muffins a delightful crumb cake and 2 different types of quiches. They also had a fruit and yogurt parfait that was made with Greek yogurt and honey.
I would highly recommend the Ayres Inn to anyone travelling to SanAntonio. The area is in close proximity to the riverwalk, but far enough away that you don't have a touristy feeling. We will definitely stay again.
1st class all the way
Again, I too was very apprehensive at staying at a place that just opened but my worries were quickly erased. The owners went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. Very clean, modern rooms, excellent amenities, and a very homey atmosphere. We cant wait to go back and stay at this wonderful B/B!
We were heading to SA for a weekend get away and a friend indicated a new B&B opened up in the neighborhood and that it looked nice. So, although a little nervous staying at some unknown place, sight unseen, we were very happy. I have to admit that we were also a bit nervous that the place had just opened, but it really felt as if the place had been in business for years - and successfully! The house and furnishings were all fantastic! Breakfast was light fare, but we eat healthy anyway, so that was just fine.
We stayed in the Bonham room, (a hero of the Alamo I think) and it was great. I can't really think of anything we were unhappy about...maybe the rain in SA that weekend, but that's about it. Overall, great place and we'll be going back.
