Ben & Doug do a great job meeting all your needs in this comfy B&B in a restored Victorian House just west of Balboa Park. Its location affords easy access to many SD attractions. As other reviews have mentioned, the property is near the landing flight path of the airport, however, the noise is not particularly bothersome and most landings... More

After a six-night stay at Keating House, we're so glad we chose it. The hosts are gracious and helpful, the breakfast is spot-on and includes quiche, just-baked bread and fresh fruit. We stayed in the Music and Rose rooms, both spacious and comfy. The neighborhood is fabulous: safe, walkable, and close to Balboa Park. From Keating House we were able... More

Spent two nights there. The perfect alternative to those boring chain hotels. Perfect location, walking distance to Little Italy, and even Gaslamp district (if you're up for a bit longer walk, that is...). Went for a beautiful morning walk to nearby Balboa Park. Afterwards enjoys the lovingly prepared breakfast. Ah, and NO TVs!!! invites you to have a chat with... More

Keating House was great weekend for us. We stayed in the garden suite three nights. Spacious and very comfortable. There are a couple small private areas with table & chairs in the gardens. We took full advantage enjoying coffee in the morning and reading with a glass of wine in the evening. The location of the house is incredible!! Walking... More

Old victorian house in central San Diego (a couple of kilometers from Gaslamp District), very well kept, clean and fascinating. The housekeepers are special and gentle, they have advised us about the best things to do in San Diego and surroundings. Although the Keating House is close to the airport, we have not been disturbed by flight noise at all.... More

Charming B&B, my sister and I were on the first floor right off the foyer. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast in the sunny dinning room. Also, enjoyed the swing on the front porch, chatting with other guests, or just watching the airplanes, so close. Very quiet neighborhood , with easy access to many restaurants and attractions. Ben and Doug were very helpful... More

Lovely spot on mansion row to spend time in San Diego. The breakfasts are great, the housekeepers share were to go and not.... I really enjoyed the bedroom off of the garden. The mattress, however, was far to soft for my tastes.

What a charming place. My husband and I loved it there. The beautiful rooms and the delicious breakfast are unforgettable. The location is great. The airplane noise can be LOUD... but...it stops at a certain time and you may be distracted by the cuteness of this place, anyway!

This place was wonderful. We stayed for three nights in July 2014. The fresh homemade bread and fresh fruit every morning were amazing. The entrees always had fresh ingredients too. Ben and Doug were great hosts and made us feel comfortable. When we first arrived (first trip to the city) Ben brought out a map and showed us neat things... More

We have been staying here for 5 or 6 years, and are always happy to return. Great hosts (Ben and Doug), great location in walking distance to all the things we like to do in San Diego, great breakfast, great company at breakfast, and many great restaurants nearby.
