We stayed 3 nights at the Keating House, and my sister joined us (in another room) for 2 of the nights. Really liked this place - it was convenient to San Diego's fantastic public transit system, which we used A LOT. My only criticism would be that while the breakfast was delicious, we were served the same thing all three... More

We spent Mother's Day in San Diego and spent the evening at Keating House. From the moment we arrived, we felt very welcome and at home. One of the hosts gave us an overview of places of interest near and around the area. He gave us a map to help us find our way. The room, although not huge, was... More

We stayed here last year for our 10th anniversary. This place is centrally located, and we walked everywhere! The owners are wonderful; providing great customer service and a cozy, intimate atmosphere. They were very knowledgeable of the city, and can tell you anything you need to know. I was very impressed to find out that their breakfasts are made from... More

the house is nice and clean, breakfast delicious, hosts are great and super helpful for information on places to eat and things to do. room was great. only one negative, as with many locations in san diego, the air traffic is noisy. the planes stop flying after 10pm pst so not too much of an issue.

Loved this bed and breakfast! Wonderful location, large rooms, comfortable beds, fresh towels each day. Very helpful hosts with lots of information and suggestions regarding the area. We were able to walk everywhere. Enjoyed having morning coffee on the porch and evening wine on the porch.

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
