Historical Traveler Reviews 1908 Ayres Inn San Antonio

Leave the Hotels Behind

from

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.

The rooms are have a modern feel and are beautifully decorated. You won't find a floral pattern on the walls or plastic vines on your bedpost. The beds are incredibly comfortable (equal to Westin's Heavenly Bed) and the linens are ultra luxurious. The bathrooms are extremely large and modern with beautiful dark wood vanities, plenty of space for your toiletries and thick luxurious towels.

We had a chance to view all the rooms and would have stayed in any of them. There are two sitting rooms on the downstairs level, a beautiful large dining room, sun room and kitchen. The dining room has a small refrigerator filled with OJ, sodas, bottled water, V8 juice, milk and yogurt, which are available to you 24 hours a day.

Mike will provide directions to anywhere you wish to go or suggestions for dinner, etc. Hector makes a wonderful margarita, which we enjoyed one afternoon while chatting with Mike and Hector.

You are provided with a cell phone so you can contact Mike or Hector at anytime if you are out and need assistance, directions, etc.

Mike and Hector have invested a tremendous amount of time, expense and sweat equity into their beautiful Inn and it really shows. The next time you are visiting San Antonio, take a break from the hotel chain experience and give 1908 Ayres a try. You won't be disappointed.

Got Romance?

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"....

Stay here!

from

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.

Awsome B&B

from

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.

We've stayed in "Fancy" hotels in downtown San Antonio before and much preferred the Ayres 1908 Inn to any of them....it has the quality of those fancy hotels with the personal service of the best B&Bs. If you are looking to relax and spend time w/ a very special person in your life, then you are going to do just that that Ayres 1908 Inn. We highly recommend staying at this B&B!

Best B&B Ever

from

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

from

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!

from

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!!

from

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

from

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!

Very Impressed

from

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.

... 1800-6000 Mexican troops led by General Antonio Lopaz de Santa Anna, after holding out for thirteen day they were finally overrun with only a hand full of survivors left

... cool and watched the film 'the giver'. After that I packed up my bags and got an early night. I was up at 6am, Diego kindly drove me into San Antonio to get my bus headed for New Orleans. The journey was scheduled to take 12 hours in total with a few breaks in between. It was good to see Cal for a few days and meet Diego and Chris, they looked after me really well and it's always nice to be in a home rather than a hostel! Thanks to the boys and on I go, New Orleans next ...

Even though we had they alarm on for 8am, I could not wake up for the life of me! That's a first since I've been here, and we have had loads of sleep in the last couple of days with all our lie ins! Ross woke me back up at about 8.30, we had to go downstairs and get some breakfast in the lobby as it was included in this hotel. I had some bran flakes and orange juice, Ross made a waffles in the shape of the Texas state with maple syrup on, and had cereal and ...

Texas Hill Country

Today we decided to take a day trip to Austin and the Texas Hill Country, which is a scenic area northwest of San Antonio, with highways weaving through small towns and wine country. We left San Antonio at 9 AM and 66 degrees and headed north. The drive to Austin is about an hour and 15 and it is very commercial most of that way. And we took full advantage of the many tangles of raised roadways that I am finding to be very characteristic of Texas…our US government has spent ...
