He had some great suggestions of places to go in San Diego as well as other stops on our trip. The location is so convenient... More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary. A staycation because we both live in San Diego. We loved it. Ben's hospitality was great. The food was amazing and the room was cozy. We will definitely stay here again if/when we do another staycation.

We stayed three nights and loved it. Fine breakfasts with chat about the day's plan with the helpful owners. Elegant surroundings and lovely decoration. Area is very nice totally different from downtown with the park and lots of restaurants close by. Perfect.

This is a lovely place to stay in San Diego. Doug & Ben were incredibly helpful to us and helped with local knowledge and even helped us plan a scenic route to Palm Springs. The breakfasts were always healthy and plentiful. The diner on the corner is a great stop gap if you want good American fare without the fuss.

With Ben and Doug as our gracious hosts we thoroughly enjoyed our week at Keating House. A 10 minute walk to Balboa Park is highly recommended; the transit to downtown is close by; Keating House is an easy 15 minute drive from the airport and 30 minute walk to downtown. The garden which surrounds Keating House is the perfect place... More

Super hosts in this quaint B & B. Great location operated by Doug and Ben who share their knowledge of the city and surrounding areas to help you see the best parts of San Diego. The room was nice and the breakfasts were exceptional. We would highly recommend this to all.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep on an airport runway? Well, if you stay in the yellow room you will get that experience. Since every two minutes from 7:30am to 11:30pm there will be a commercial jet making its final approach. The only hours of sleep possible are when the airport is closed. I am... More
