The owner does a great job of making one feel at home. I liked the fresh baked bread and fruit as part of the excellent breakfast. The Keating House is also in a great location. It allows one to walk to the zoo, Gaslamp district, and Balboa Park. I am so glad my girlfriend suggested staying at a bed &... More

We stayed a week and loved it. Ben and Doug are terrific hosts. The house is quirky and pleasant, the atmosphere laid-back and comfortable -- a home away from home. We followed Ben's advice on where to eat and what to see and were glad we did. Yes, it's near the path for incoming flights, but we didn't even notice... More

Wonderful breakfasts, great centralized location. Owners were visible, serving breakfast and answering questions, and always extremely helpful. Blue room was small, but clean. Claw foot tub is narrow and hard to maneuver, but water was always hot when I needed it to be. Individual room doors do not lock, only front door has a lock, but nothing came up missing.... More

My husband and I stayed at Keating House on our vacation to San Diego from Edmonton, Canada. We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were very friendly and made helpful recommendations for restaurants and activities based on our interests. The house is charming, with lots of character and the location excellent for walking and exploring the city. We didn't even... More

The location is great. Walking distance to bars and resturants.The hotel room decor is not my style. We had a great view from our room. Very small lobby. But great customer service and quick check in process.

This B&B had almost everything you need. In terms of location, it was just right. A few minutes from Balboa Park, a beautiful place worth a few hours if not days exploration. It was about a mile from the centre, so 20min walk and had a few lovely eateries within a block or 2. It felt safe, the neighbourhood seemed... More

The owners, Ben and Doug, really makes this feel like a comfortable home. They are a wealth of information regarding what to see in San Diego. The best part about staying at a B & B are the people you meet - you don't get that kind of interaction in a hotel. Past reviews mention the airplanes - yes, the... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Chauffeur’s room. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely B&B. Upon our arrival Ben gave us an overview of San Diego, which was very nice. We loved the morning breakfast of fruit (something different was offered each morning we were there), home-made bread and jams, and a frittata. Various cerials... More

This inn is close to everything but I would get a car if you are not a walker. Besides, it is wonderful to drive to Coronado and the harbor and see the "Tall Ships". The hosts are very accommodating. They gave us detailed directions and recommendations to Balboa Park, the Harbor and the Zoo We ate meals at a couple... More

My daughter and I spent just an overnight in San Diego and stayed at the Keating House. We were welcomed by Ben and Doug, who gave us some wonderful, detailed info about places to go, eat, etc. Our room was the Music Room on the first floor and was very comfortable and nicely decorated.
