"You Never Learn Anything Travelling 1st Class"

... we made our way back to the 101 the long way via the 154. The scenery is a wide, sprawling valley with mountains featured in Bonanza and Gene Autrey westerns. It helped the bacon marinated in orange juice and maple syrup to ride the wild plains of my digestive system. Get along little doggies! The RV was running on empty when we pulled into Santa Barbara for our pit stop. And it was the pits, the restroom at least; nothing quite like a strobing neon in a filthy gas ...

Great New Old Friends

... 8217;s hard to explain how we could become such good friends in just one overnight stay. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that both Cheyenne (16) and Mathew are special kids with some special needs. The conversations about school, horses and movies started a bit clumsy with us translating Matt’s vocalizations, and Keith mostly speaking for Cheyenne but things warmed up as our shared interests trumped speech challenges.

Day 6: rapid repair, and rapid pace

... ARE NOT ALONE!!! I do wonder if it has something to do with a 7/4 weekend. I doubt they put up the "Thinking of buying a new gun?......DON'T, until you shoot it here. Classes 6 days a week," billboards just for the weekend though. So cool to see OUR CULTURE in the open, being supported. So we pulled into the KOA in San Antonio today. We easily have the $&@!iest trailer here. People were looking at us like something was about to ...

En Route

... like we won't get our B-Class upgrade after all...sheesh. 100,000 miles apiece and no where to spend them. Maybe need to rethink being loyal to one airline... Today's travel agenda includes flights to London (with a layover at DFW), then a train to the city of Bath, 1.5 hours away from London. I'm really excited about Bath, a town named for the Roman Baths it is built upon. If all goes well, we'll be walking into a B&B in Bath in just under 14 hours. ...

The continuing saga!

A travel blog entry by cruisinseniors

... Then the problems started. We had purchased the GPS on 11/11/11 along with some other items and I had the receipt with me since I had registered the product with Camping World. Of course that was before the big merger with Good Sam, keep that in mind! We had also purchased a three year replacement plan, also registered with Camping World. They had to call the insurance section in order to get approval for the replacement and the lady at CW was having an extremely difficult ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews A Yellow Rose Bed and Breakfast San Antonio

    Charm & personal touch

    from

    Just a quick not of appreciation & gratitude. Having never been a guest at a B&B, I was somewhat aprehensive about this adventure. Was I wrong! Thank you for a wonderful, warm, and confortable stay! Breakfast was out of this world!! Thanks again for your hospitality, charm, and personal touch! Looking forward to returning very soon!

    Continued successes! Bob & Desy

    Lovely B&B

    from

    If you are looking for a romantic getaway in the historic King Williams district of San Antonio, A Yellow Rose is just what you'll love. Very affordable, lovely and fully equipped rooms with special touches, including fresh flowers, refreshments and helpful visitor information. Location is great if you want to be near the famous river walk. Very friendly and helpful hosts!

    If you're coming to San Antonio, you can't do better than a Yellow Rose.

    from

    Nestled in the art district of San Antonio's charming King William neighborhood, A Yellow Rose Bed & Breakfast is a tasteful, thoughtfully furnished and impeccably clean and comfortable inn. Anyone who travels regularly can tell you that staying in a hotel, even the most expensive one, can be a sterile and impersonal experience. Not A Yellow Rose. Here you feel all the warmth and charm of a beautiful vintage San Antonio house with lush greenery, every ammenity and complete privacy. Inn keepers Deb and Kit make sure your towels and sheets are A+ quality, there were chocolates by my bed every day and Deb's eye for detail allowed me to look forward to "coming home" to my own quiet haven every night after the intensive writer's workshop activities I participated in. I love the place so much I am a repeat customer, and plan to come back next summer and stay in the same room again. So if you're coming to San Antonio, you can't do better than a Yellow Rose: reasonably priced, centrally located to everything, and a stone's throw from a great walking path by the river. I should also mention that you'll be walking distance from a number of great eateries, a good coffee house and numerous art activities, especially if you are here the first Friday of the month. Thanks Deb and Kit. I only wish I could take the bed home with me!

    Great Honeymoon Stay!!

    from

    We drove to San Antonio pretty much right after our wedding. We didn't get there until right around midnight, but once we finally found the place we were very pleased with how cozy it looked. The inn keepers left a note for us and the key to our room, and once we stepped inside our room we could not believe how wonderful the room was. We had sweets and champagne waiting for us as soon as we got there, and our room had a king sized jacuzzi tub that was to die for!! Every ammenity you could possibly think of was available to us. We did not want for anything while we were there. The bed was extremely comfortable. We slept very well. We were very pleased with the hospitality of the inn keepers and staff. We even had breakfast served to our room. The apple pancakes we were served our first morning there were delicious!! We had a very wonderful and very romantic stay!! I would recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone visiting San Antonio.

    Slept like a baby at A Yellow Rose

    from

    A Yellow Rose B&B, San Antonio TXI spent a February weekend in perfect delight at A Yellow Rose, a B&B in San Antonio, Texas. Bed: an old four-poster with a firm mattress, and I slept like a baby. Breakfast, served on an elegantly laid table in a corner of my room: baked scrambled eggs, sweet muffins, sliced kiwi fruit, apple turnover, and coffee, deeply satisfying. A Yellow Rose is a few blocks south of downtown San Antonio and a quick cab ride from the airport, in the King William district--a neighborhood of palm trees, magnolias, and homes of the historically well-to-do that borders San Antonio's famous River Walk. The proprietors of A Yellow Rose live and prepare meals in the old yellow brick house itself, and guest rooms are in a new frame wing and carriage house at the rear. My room, the Bordeaux, was huge and elegant, and it had everything a person could want--a chaise, a desk, coffee and tea ready to be brewed, chocolates, a ceiling fan, an ample and well appointed bath, the four-poster, and privacy. TV and cell phone, too, of course.

    A Haven!

    from

    Our room at A Yellow Rose was truly a haven after a day of enjoying the pleasures of San Antonio: a short trolley ride from the crowds in Alamo Square to our spacious and serene room. The delight of breakfast on the porch, the proximity of good neighborhood restaurants, the charm of the pedestrian-friendly King William neighborhood, and the peace and quiet of 229 Madison Street all contributed to our enjoyment. On any subsequent visit, we would not consider accommodations other than A Yellow Rose.

    Ah, every B&B should be this sweet!

    from

    Where do you stay when you have four couples and a family of four traveling together in San Antonio? A YELLOW ROSE B&B!Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay. Our family visited San Antonio for my Mom's 80th birthday. I was lucky to find such a friendly, cozy place that could accommodate all of us, especially the kids, with all the comforts of home. Each room was unique and very comfortable. Everything was just perfect, and the special touches (refrigerator, goodies, coffee pot, coffees/teas, juices, soda, area info booklets, maps, beautiful furnishings, separate porches) - you can't get that kind of comfort at a hotel. It was great! We'll definitely be back again. It exceeded my family's expectations and everyone had such a great time.The Takahashi Family

    A Delightful Weekend

    from

    Staying at A Yellow Rose was a delight. Attending an event at the convention center, we chose to stay in the historic area, King William.

    A good B&B

    from

    My husband and I stayed at A Yellow Rose for the first few days of our honeymoon (April 2003). Our room, the Bordeaux room, was spacious and entreating. We also very much enjoyed our breakfasts in bed (great cooking!), as well as the pastries and refreshments left for our arrival and replenished the next day (so many we couldn't eat). We thought the property overall was lovely and beautifully maintained- we would certainly come back for an anniversary!

    Not what it seems.

    from

    We drove in at night and it looked haunted. The house does not look like the picture. The weeds are over grown. It looked run down. We drove into the back and they have small carports. We have a big suv. We were afraid of the area. We werent sure if we were in a bad area. It looked really run down. The only good thing were the inside of the rooms. They were clean and in good condition. I am not sure if we got the new ones. We had 2 couples and 2 rooms. They said they supply bubble bath and oils for the bath (received nothing). They said jacuzzi tub it was old with no pressure. They said soda and juices only 4 juices. Basket full of teas (only 2 different tea bags) Surprise in the freezer never, No surprise. They said you get breakfast basket stocked with just baked sweet breads, fuit, yummy jams and honey , yougurt and lot of other items...Nope just paper plate with 4 small browies that tasted old. I was suppose to get the Carriage House Suite got the Bordeaux Room (which was nice. They said 2 blocks from the river walk it was farther than that. We walked the first night thru the ghetto. We took a taxi back. Overall I would NOT go back to the bed & breakfast.......... Thank God for websites like these...
