We stayed in the Mockingbird suite up stairs across from the dining room. This is a two room suite with a large bedroom and a nice separate sitting area. There is a counter with sink in the sitting room to prepare a meal if you wished. The bathroom is a bit cramped but functional. You also have an additional common...

We stayed at Brackenridge House over the New Years weekend. The House is in the King William district, a thoroughly pleasant area of late 19th and early 20th century homes. Many of the residences have been designated as historic buildings, some of which have guided tours of the grounds and interiors. The Brackenridge House is also of that genre. Entering...

Trains run by there all night, cannot change temperature in your room, Porch light stays on all night with no blind covering it so no sleep!! "Full breakfast" was not served until 9 a.m. Never saw any innkeeper or manager when we arrived and when we left.

Good location - Riverwalk is very close by (one end of it anyway) and really is close enough to downtown if you don't mind a little walk. LOTS of places to eat within walking distance! Free parking (street). The only time it was hard was during the Free Friday night event. But it's cool because this place is very close...

My wife and I recently stayed in the Hummingbird room and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We were there for 3 nights and had breakfast all 3 mornings. Breakfast was delicious each time. The staff is beyond friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate us anytime we had a request. It's only a 15 minute walk to the riverwalk...

The house is in the historic district of SA and the street is tree lined and very quiet. We parked off street but you could also park in the street as there were no restrictions and very little traffic. Not quite close enough to walk to the centre. Great to sit on the veranda to eat breakfast and watch the...

My family gave me two nights at the Breckinridge for my birthday. My husband and I enjoyed a delightful stay last week in the Hummingbird room. The room is pretty, spacious, private and very quiet, containing an extremely comfortable king bed with luxurious linens. Our room was outfitted with all the amenities of a top hotel along with the thoughtful...

It was our treat to stay at the Breckenridge house in SAN Antonio. Lily, our hostess, and her husband have created a superior habitat in a historical area of SAN Antonio. The room was comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast was delicious and the Riverwalk was 3 blocks away. It was a brisk 20 minute walk to the Alamo. Alfred and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the first bed and breakfast in famous historic King William District, the Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast has been pampering guests since 1986. Our rooms and suites are furnished in antique regal Victorian furniture with comfortable beds and the modern conveniences you would expect to find in a first-class hotel. All have en suite full bathroom and private entrance. Your stay at the Brackenridge house comes with a full three course hot breakfast prepared fresh every morning especially for you. For your enjoyment and convenience, all our rooms have mini-refrigerators stocked with complimentary drinks and ice, microwaves and coffee makers. The front porch and upstairs veranda invites you to relax in a rocking chair or porch swing while watching the horse drawn carriage goes by, enjoying a glass of wine or a good book. Immerse yourself in our hot tub in the rear garden area, it is the perfect way to start your day or unwind after a day of sightseeing. Available year round. Before retiring for the night enjoy a delicious Godiva truffle with a glass of cream sherry, pop a bag of popcorn and grab a movie from our extensive selection of DVDs or try one of our delicious signature home baked cookies. The Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast provides the advantages of being two blocks away from the River Walk, five blocks from the Alamo and the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center and a short walk from El Mercado and the Alamodome without the noise and congestion of downtown.
