This location was perfect for our Girls Weekend Away. There were 4 of us and we had the top floor suite one night and the two 2nd floor rooms that were joined by the veranda. I can't really say which was better...they were both awesome. The hospitality was superb and the location was perfect. We parked the car when we...

Thank you so much for such a great review. You really recognized what San Antonio is all about, especially the Southown/King William District area. We believe no matter the reason you visit you deserve to feel at home. Whenever you, and your girls return, our porch swing, veranda and the local margaritas will be here to welcome you. Thanks again!

We spent the last week in San Antonio on spring break. I did a fair amount of research on tripadvisor looking for the best place to stay and settled on Eva's based on a combination of the fact that I generally prefer B&B's, price, location, and the specific room we picked was a suite which gave our daughter her own...

Cliff- Thank you for your kind words and recommendations! We loved opening our doors to you and your family, and we thank you for choosing us. Even though the college you toured was of no interest, there are many more in the area. It was a pleasure having you as our guests and we hope to see you again.

My husband and I checked into Eva's along with two other couples for a couples getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality, attention to detail with amenities and the truly authentic and home away from home feel. Did I mention that it was superbly romantic!!??

This was a target event. We had a wedding planed at the establishment. Tons of things went wrong. The pictures was very deceiving.

A very nice, cozy, well run establishment. In the heart of downtown San Antonio with easy walking access to main downtown attractions. A safe, family-friendly area of town. Be certain to ask Deborah the stories behind each breakfast she serves.

This B&B is what I believe to be a rare find. A beautifully restored and appointed antique home. The host and staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was comprised of original recipes that could only be described as gourmet. We have stayed in many hotels but none have had an experience and ambiance that have left us with wonderful...

We had a great stay at Eva's Escape! Our Magnolia room was perfect, and the home was beautiful and well appointed. The breakfast was amazing and the afternoon wine and cupcakes was a great time to meet other guests. The location was convenient to a few bars and restaurants (walking distance), and other activities within walking distance. We will definitely...

Our two nights at Eva's Escape was unlike any bed and breakfast stay we had experienced. The home has been beautifully restored and many of those little extras that make a B and B memorable are here: chocolates on the pillows, complimentary wine before dinner, books and games at hand. Our room was very comfortable and clean (although the staff...

Deborah and her staff are warm and welcoming, and her home is lovely. Eva's is part of the King William Historic District, and the house is over one-hundred years old.
