"The Bullis Inn may not be right on
the Riverwalk, but it's well worth the 10 minute drive from it. The
house is beautiful and well restored to what it must have looked
like in the early 1900's. The staff, especially the Manager, Mike
Tease, was friendly, warm, and helpful. My room was beautifully
decorated, comfortable and clean. It's located in a quiet
neighborhood away from the freeway and city noise. I was happily
greeted by Mike the next morning. I stayed longer than I planned,
due to the great stories Mike had to tell me on the history of the
Bullis House...I enjoyed everyone of them...I wish I could have
stayed longer. San Antonio was my 3rd stop on a cross-country drive
from Florida to California. The Bullis House Inn was my favorite
place of all the places I stayed at during my trip. If you're ever
in San Antonio, this place is a must to stay! I'll definitely be
staying there again, next time I'm in town."
