“Great location for Lacklund Air Force families and Riverwalk visitors.”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We made reservations here in order to spend 4 nights in San Antonio to visit Lacklund Air Force base for our sons BMT graduation. We SOOOO happy we chose this B&B. We found it online while searching for anyplace to stay.

We stumbled upon this one based on price and location. Since we've never been to San Antonio we had no idea where to stay. We took a chance and are so glad we did. Deb called us after we inquired into availability and informed us we would be in a good spot and that Lacklund families stay there all the time.

When we arrived we noted the historic and beautiful neighborhood the home is in. Very safe and easy parking. We checked in and the Blue Bonnet room was very nice. The room was clean and good sized. The fridge was stocked with juice, pop and coffee. We did not take advantage of the breakfast since we were gone early each day and home late.

During the stay we were able to walk to the riverwalk each night with no issues. It's only about five blocks away and easily walkable. We loved the downtown riverwalk, bars and eateries.

We obviously drove to the Air Force base each day and it is only about 15 minutes away. Vet easy to get on the freeway and make it there quickly. We spent one day on base and three days on a town pass with our son. We caught a Rangers baseball game and a Spurs basketball game. We had an awesome time in San Antonio and loved the city. The Yellow Rose (Deb) made this such an enjoyable stay we will definitely recommend and return in the future. Oh, and the price was better than the hotels and other B&B's in the area. Location, location, location and price, price, price. You will be happy you stayed.

We booked A Yellow Rose sourced through fellow travellers on this site and it was a great way to visit the city. The location is truly within walking distance of the downtown, the neighborhood offers excellent alternatives for dining, the Historic King William neighborhood surrounds you with charm. The shared bike stations are a short walk away as is the River Walk. Our room was large and very comfortable. We opted for the pre stocked continental breakfast which included yoghurt and fresh fruit daily along with a breakfast type loaf, orange juice and French press coffee or tea. We were free to eat indoors or on the veranda outside our door. Being in a neighborhood felt so refreshing after a day of sightseeing. It was an oasis for us and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

Lovely rooms, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. Relaxing porch in the back courtyard. Nice location close to the riverwalk (we were able to walk back and forth to downtown with no problem) but off the main drag enough to be quiet and peaceful. The owner was friendly and very helpful. This was our first time in Texas and she gave us lots of great tips on what to see and where to eat.

Room Tip: We chose one of the upstairs rooms because we wanted to have access to the upper deck of the porch...

We stayed 3 nights over Valentines day and our experience was excellent. Through booking ahead, communication overall (including recommended taxi to be dropped off from airport), through the information provided in the room and by the owners - we felt welcome but never intruded upon. The room was huge, very comfortable - fridge and french press coffee. Comfy bed and great linens - also a spare blanket. We had a light breakfast the first day - chocolate loaf, yogurt, fruit with juice and coffee but there were so many recommended places nearby we opted for just coffee the other days.
The location is perfect - great walks all around and close to downtown. Safe off street parking for our rental car as well.We got to meet the owners dogs too! Never would have known they had them otherwise - completely quiet.
This is a lovely B&B and you can tailor the services to what you prefer - the hosts were so friendly but not at all pushy - just perfect!

Large, nicely furnished rooms. Great location (right near the riverwalk, which leads to a beautiful strolls either down to the missions or into town and the neighborhood has some great places to grab a beer / food). Owner was very nice and helpful (e.g., recommended a nice jog in the area).

My husband and I spent Christmas week in San Antonio and stayed at the Yellow Rose. We enjoyed the quiet and historical neighborhood. One cannot beat the location. It is within walking distance to The RiverWalk, neighborhood restaurants and shops. We did not choose the breakfast but opted for just coffee, tea and juice. We wanted to be free to explore other places for breakfast. Our suite was like a small apartment with a comfortable living space, complete kitchen (if one wanted to do their own cooking...we did not), walk in shower in a large bathroom plus a large bedroom with a king-size bed. The bed was very comfortable. Deb, the owner, was a big help and answered all of our questions and was an excellent host. One good feature was that we could park our car off street in the back where there was a covered pull-in garage plus there was no charge for parking. That is a real plus in the downtown area where major hotels charge a big parking fee. A gate was across the driveway so we felt safe leaving our car there. Our room was clean and comfortable. It felt like home.

Room Tip: If one wants more room with a feeling of home and a walk-in shower, ask for the apartment over the g...

For our second year anniversary we opted for a "staycation" and were looking for something in the downtown or southtown area. I'm glad that we stumbled upon the Yellow Rose. There is no formal check-in when you arrive, so it feels very private. Our room and bathroom were large, clean, and well-furnished. I really appreciated the reading books supplied.
We chose the full breakfast option for both mornings. They were both delicious. I've included a picture of one of the breakfasts. The location is beautiful and perfect. It is easy to walk into downtown or catch a Via Streetcar.
An added bonus were the few cats that populate the neighborhood and could be seen hanging around.
Another bonus! free and convenient parking.

Room Tip: The stairs to the 2nd floor rooms are a little steep. If you have any problems with stairs, I recomm...
