Historical Traveler Reviews Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast San Antonio
Brackenridge-has HiSpeed Internet
April 2005. We had a great time at the Brackenridge house and we are not normally "Bed & Breakfast" types. We won a two night stay through Texas Monthly so had nothing to lose. We were pleasantly surprised by the up-to-date conveniences. Our past experience with B & B's were shared bathrooms and blown breakers using a hair dryer. Nothing like that at the Brackenridge. It has all the antiquity ambience along with high speed internet, microwave, refrigerator and of course each room has it's own bath, shower and fully functioning toilet. The location is wonderful, and truly is a walkable distance to the Riverwalk. Our hosts were the best and gave us a full overview of restaurants, Trolley maps and such upon arrival so that we were confident to set out on our own. The morning breakfasts were excellent, with abundance and had something for every taste. We would highy recommend this Bed & Breakfast and can easily understand why it has such a good rating.
My husband and I stayed at the Brackenridge House for two nights and didn't want to leave! The location in the King William Historic District was perfect for strolling the neighborhood and seeing the beautiful Victorian homes. We enjoyed being just two blocks from the riverwalk, and the stroll downtown along the Rio San Antonio was filled with lots of opportunities to take pictures. Bennie and Sue epitomize Southern hospitality, providing tips on restaurants and things to do and serving up delicious three-course breakfasts. Lily's apple-stuffed French toast was yummy! This was our first visit to San Antonio, and when we return, the Brackenridge House again will be our home away from home.
Couldn't be better!
We have been B&Bing for 25 years, and it just doesn't get any better than this. Sue and Bennie are the perfect hosts, the rooms are spotless and well-appointed, and the breakfasts are superb. Highly recommended.
A Wonderful Stay
We have stayed at many B&Bs with warm, welcoming touches, but Sue and Bennie supplied them all: 4 star, 4 course breakfasts, daily sherry, stocked refrigerators, newspapers and books about San Antonio, every possible amenity in the bathroom, and wonderful directions and restaurant suggestions from Sue. We will send all our friends to the Brackenridge from now on.
Our first B & B experience
This was our first time at a B& B and it probably spoiled us for future attempts at other B & B's. Benny and Sue are marvelous hosts and the food is great. A central location makes this the perfect place to stay in San Antonio,
What a great experience. The Inn keepers, Bennie and Sue are the best people you would ever want to meet We had come to see our daughter graduate from basic training and immediately were greeted as if we were family. We had such a great time at Brackenridge House. Nothing was overlooked. We have traveled the world over and never found a better place to stay. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a wonderful experience.

Bennie and Sue are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the convienence of the trolly passes to go all around San Antonio without having to fight finding a parking place. We went all over with these free trolly passes. The attention to detail is wonderful here anticipating all my needs and the well stocked refrig in the room. Breakfast was delightful and we enjoyed the brownies for an afternoon snack. We will recommend this B&B to anyone going to SA.
Brackenridge House is first rate
I have stayed at the Brackenridge House several times both as a business and leisure traveler and my experience has always been terrific.
The house is squeaky clean; the food is wonderful; the innkeepers are friendly and helpful. On those occasions when they have been gone, the manager did a superb job ofv managing the inn.
I wonder if the people from Hunt even stayed at the Brackenridge House.
Pets and small children are acceepted in the carriage house only, The Blansett Barn, which is located 1/2 block from the main house. There is a continental breakfast served there (we stayed there when we brought our dog). It is just as clean and orderly as the main house.
Although we have no food allergies, we have been at the breakfast table when Sue prepared special dishes for vegetarians and diabetics. She asked us at check in whether or not we had any special needs and had a delicious breakfast for everyone.
I have never had trouble parking behind the house.
If it seems like I know a lot about this place, I do. LIke I said, I stay here often because I feel at home here. Bennie, Sue and Lily go out of their way to make sure I have whatever I need. I've never stayed at a better bed and breakfast.
Brackenridge House became our home for 5 days, loved it!
Most spectacular B & B we have stayed in our 20 years of travel through the USA. Three couples from California and one from North Carolina, we stayed for five nights and were delighted to call the Brackenridge House home during our stay in San Antonio, TX.Clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were wonderful and our hostess, Lily, became a friend and did a great job of filling in for the owners who went out of town to welcome a new grandchild.We highly recommend to anyone visiting San Antonio, TX, the Brackenridge House, you will love it. In the heart of the King William District near the Riverwalk and the Alamo gave us an opportunity to walk from the house to most everywhere we wanted to see.Robert John and Gayle Crawford
The Brackenridge House is Wonderful
This is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The food is wonderful and the hospitality as good or better. It is very convenient to the Riverwalk, the Alamo and the other missions and has easy access to major freeways. It is a great value.

... had awesome food, and invited us over. Nice family, a very diverse group.
Last week, Mike and I visited the Steinbach Haus in Castroville. It's a small, medieval house originally built in Wahlbach, County of Sundgau, Alsace, France, between 1618 and 1648 by the Steinbach family who lived in the home well into the 1900's. In 1998, it was given to the City of Castroville, Texas as a gift from the citizens of Alsace, France. ...
... fix it guys". Joe Richey and Larry Gordon know everything about fixing motorhomes, at least everything we've asked about they knew hoe to fix it. So pretty soon, they were lying on the ground under the coach. They found the leak! Luckily, it was something simple, a loose nut! They tightened it, we refilled the reservoir, pumped the brakes a few time, no more leakage noted. HOWEVER, they did find another small problem, a clamp holding on the sway bar between the rear wheels ...
... was gobsmacked at the price - $244. He told us that it could not be right, and he didn't feel comfortable taking so much money from us. He thought there must have been some kind of mistake. We acted dumb like we didn't know that was the rate we agreed on. He looked it up on the system; he couldn't see a mistake as such but couldn't understand why the fee was so high compared to car hire in San Antonio (and most other cities at that), for much, much MUCH less! The man tried to ...
... monitor the guages (must be a habit from when I flew airplanes) and I noticed the heat guage sliding up the scale a tad. Then it pegged at HOT. I pulled over along side the road and let it cool down. Gail made us a sandwich and we just enjoyed the buffeting as the semi's roared by us. We checked out the map and found that Fort Stockton was about 10 miles away. Piece of cake, so off we went.
Got into town and stopped at the first ...
... but I ordered duck three ways and Ron tried the shrimp and grits. Both delicious, especially accompanied by a good bottle of wine.
After dinner we took the River Walk to Hemisfair Park, sight of the 1968 World's Fair. We ascended the 750 Tower of the Americas for a spectacular view. Unfortunately, a private party occupied half the tower and the view!
All in all it was a great day.
