Loved this bed-and-breakfast. The flowers and brownies addressed to me in the room were a lovely touch. The beds and furniture were very comfortable I slept like a baby. The quick walk to the beach was very convenient.The lawn chairs and umbrellas left in the room were a nice touch on my treck to the beach. The refrigerators in the... More

I love the Elsbree House!! Would definitely recommend! Perfect location steps from Ocean Beach. The staff was very nice. The room was big and had a great back patio. The breakfast vouchers to Shades (a local hot spot) made for a perfect beach front breakfast! We even went back at night for dinner and to watch the sunset. Great value... More

We stayed in room B2, and it was great. private patio, private entrance and bathroom. When you arrive, you get your keys from the front desk and let yourself in- a great B&B for those who prefer the more private hotel experience. Our room had to television, which was fine. A few second walk to the beach, bars and restaurants.... More

This was an incredible stay! The flowers and brownies in the room were an amazing treat to be welcomed to. Everything for check-in was there in the envelope and it couldn't have been easier! Breakfast right around the corner from the B&B and was located right on the beach, and Shades Breakfast is amazing. Staff cleaned the rooms daily and... More

Worst B&B I ever stayed in. Had to pay for entire stay in advance (now I know why). Never saw innkeeper the entire 6 night stay. Room key and information were left in envelope in mail box along with instruction to return the keys to the mailbox when we left. There was no breakfast served, only $7.50 voucher each at... More

We enjoyed our recent stay at Elsbree House in San Diego! From the fresh flowers that awaited us, to the homemade "rocky road" cake in the refrigerator, we felt very welcomed here. The location can't be beat, everything was very clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Also, when our flight was delayed, the owner/manager most graciously... More

I'm so pleased with the Elsbree house - Katie was a wonderful host even though we never had the pleasure of meeting her face to face. With separate, private entrances you really do feel like the Elsbree house is your home away from home. We arrived on Friday, later than anticipated, and were welcomed with a clearly labeled envelope with... More

This was our first time in the San Diego area, and the condo was perfect for us. It was very clean, and the arrangement of bedrooms worked well for us, with one downstairs and two upstairs. The bed mattresses are super-comfortable! The kitchen is well-equipped, and we were greeted with a plate of cookies and our own Christmas tree, with... More

My husband and I used to travel to San Diego a couple times a year, but had not been back for a decade or so. We couldn't have asked for a better reintroduction to San Diego or the beach. Since it was just the two of us we stayed in the downstairs of the vacation condo. The space was immaculate,... More

We had wonderful time at Elsbree House. The rooms were very clean, the property had beautiful plants and flowers. It was great to sit on the patio and just listen to all the sounds around you. Katie, the owner was very helpful with suggestions on things to do and places to eat. Everybody was very friendly and Katie fixed a... More
