Eva's Escape came highly recommended however my husband and I did not have a positive experience here at all. We had an event here late Summer of 2015 (note that we also stayed here after our event). The planning went ok but too many details were over looked and Eva's customer service to myself, my husband and my guests during...

Thank you for providing your feedback. In reviewing our records we only had one event in August with overnight guests and that was a wedding originally scheduled for Halloween. On August 21, the bride called and asked to change the date to August 29. We pulled off the wedding and accommodated all of the guests in that short amount of...

Deborah is a delightful host - warm, welcoming - with excellent recommendations for food -- and a superb cook. Delicious muffins, cakes, and grits. Clean and comfortable in charming neighbourhood. Highly recommended b&b in an old Southern style family house.

Eva's provides that serene, home away from home feeling. The bluebonnet room is spectacular. The innkeeper is a very nice (and informative) woman. My best friend and I are staying in San Antonio as a mommy vacation, and it is perfect.

It was a pleasure to serve you. As a busy grandmother and innkeeper, I know how precious it is to get away. We are glad we provided a restful and peaceful stay.

The cleanliness, service, and breakfast exceeded my expectations! The home is set in a great location, convenient to local restaurants. The River Walk is just a five minute drive by rental car or very inexpensive for a taxi.
