My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon and it was the best decision we made. The lighting was perfectly romantic and the tub was also perfect for the occasion. The only problem for us was that our room was a bit too close to the kitchen, but we managed. The service was great and they owners were great people. We are very satisfied and are thinking of returning soon.

If you are looking for a nice, relaxing B&B in San Antonio, this is it. The house is an historical gem but fully restored and very modern. Our room was very very nice but not stuffy. And the bed...wow, I want whatever mattress that is!
Overall, very happy and will make a return trip! Highly recommended.

My husband and I needed to get away...we really needed to get away!! We looked and looked for a B&B that was not an explosion of flowers and lace...someplace that didn't make us feel like we were six year old girls or ninety year old women! LOL! We wanted something sophisticated, contemporary - yet timeless...we wanted rich colors and dreamy textures...The Ayres Inn Delivered It All!!!
The area around the inn is quiet and beautiful. Our hosts Hector and Mike were the definition of hospitality - yet they knew just when to let us indulge in the hush of the Inn privately. Our room - oh man, our room!! We could barely leave our room it was so beautiful, comfortable and luxurious!! The sheets...the pillows...the robes...the shower...the whirlpool tub...(hold on - im drooling again!) Everything was perfect!!
Though we enjoyed our first visit to the Riverwalk, the Alamo and Sea World (all of which was minutes away), our fondest memories are of the Ayres Inn, our wonderful hosts, and the little bit of heaven we experienced there.
So, do we recommend it?? DEFINITELY!! Will we return?? I'm already making up fake holidays for a reason to go back!! Thank you Hector & Mike - you didn't provide accommodations, you provided a dream home for us. We'll see you soon!!! (And by the way - you have to try the Main Street Pizza Place that is just a couple of minutes from the Inn...its a great local place with pizza to die for!!) OK - I gotta go watch ""Snapped"" now (wink to Hector & Mike!!) Thanks!!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ayres Inn and absolutely loved it. The entire house is beautiful and newly restored which we thoroughly enjoyed. Our room was gorgeous and the bed was amazing...incredibly comfortable. We wanted to take it home with us. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. I would highly recommend the Inn... it's exceptional.
Thanks Michael and Hector... you're great! You'll be seeing us again soon!

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and we succeeded in finding one with the perfect mix of comfort, great service, and unpretentiousness. We were so happy to be able to celebrate our anniversary in such a relaxing atmosphere. No detail was overlooked by our hosts Hector and Michael. The food was delicious: home-made pastries, quiches, and round-the-clock gourmet coffee. The bedrooms were plush and inviting: exquisite linens on the bed, super-soft towels, and a whirlpool tub I didn't want to leave behind. The location,too, was perfect: historic homes in a quiet neighborhood, but close enough to downtown. Michael was a gracious host. He printed directions to a restaurant we wanted to try, explained the layout of the common areas in the home (so we knew where everything was without having to search), and also chatted with us and other guests at breakfast so that everyone felt welcome and engaged. It was a wonderful, relaxing stay and my husband and I decided that our next stay at the Ayers Inn will have to be longer!

We fully enjoyed this place! The residence is truly fantastic, and the furnishings are top notch. One thing that was very nice is the location...center of the city and close to everything, but in a nice quiet neighborhood. And the service was tip top! We'll be back.

The quiet neighborhood is unexpected, right outside of the busy streets of downtown San Antonio. Once we arrived, we noticed that this quaint area was everything we were looking for in a little get-away for two. Close enough to the city, yet far enough to escape the interruption of peace and tranquility. I absolutely loved 1908 Ayres Inn. The service was impeccable and the rooms were clean with a modern yet nostalgic feel. Mike and Hector (the owners) were the best, friendly and eager to provide the utmost in customer service. I loved the ?Jacuzzi? style bathtub and all of the amenities that were offered, from the 100% Egyptian cotton bath towels to the IPOD Alarm clock. The food received an A+, mainly because Mike and Hector provided just the right touch to make us feel at home. They even suggested the best places to visit. We often felt as though we were staying with a relative. Thanks again for everything, for a feeling like none other; we will definitely come back in the future. I recommend 1908 Ayres Inn to everyone!
