Wonderful location in Arlington, plus the rooms are quite large and the cooked to order breakfast is delicious. I also tried the adjacent spa and had a relaxing massage. Lastly, we are dinner in the restaurant and the food was excellent. We highly recommend the Sanford House.

Very nice B&B in Arlington within walking distance to AT&T stadium - great for not having to deal with parking and the crowds trying to leave a concert or game. They offered a shuttle ($15 pp round trip) to the concert this weekend which was nice. Easy drop off and pick up. Breakfast was good. We stayed in a Villa...

This was an incredible find in Arlington. A quiet, intimate 5 star restaurant, on the property of a gorgeous Inn. The dining experience was amazing, from the food to the service to the decor. While there, I got a tour of the Inn, including the luxurious cottages on the property, and booked a 5 night stay for December before I...

My wife will tell you, I'm not one for B&B's. But of the 2 options I was given for a conference in Arlington, The Sanford House was within walking distance. So I figured, "What the heck!

Great place to spend some peaceful time. I stayed in the Villa. It was quiet and clean. Slept amazing. It's a gem in the middle of the City and worth the price. There was a band playing in the distance and was loud but stopped playing by 10:00 pm. Not too bad.

Overall the Sanford House is a charming and welcoming place to stay. Beds were very comfortable. On a not so positive note....after attending an event at AT&T Stadium, we returned at midnight to find no staff available to let us in...We called, rang the doorbell, and after an hour of sitting outside I decided to explore my options.

I am sorry that you had difficulty accessing the Manor House after the event you attended. After speaking with our overnight staff member on duty that evening, he mentioned that he did rounds on the property around midnight and he saw some guests enjoying the night outside and spoke with them. However, he had no contact with guests attempting to...
