We stayed for 2 nights in the Music Room at Keating house as part of a 3 week road trip round California. It was one of the highlights of our trip and we would certainly recommend It if visiting San Diego. The location is perfect for sightseeing, and Ben and Doug were wonderful hosts, giving us lots of advice about... More

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

With Ben and Doug as our gracious and kind hosts, we were provided with helpful information for sights to see in San Diego as well as the surrounding area. The elegant house is very comfortable and breakfast in the dining room was a surprise every morning as delicious entrees were prepared for the guests. The location of Keating House to... 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

Keating house was a fun part of our trip. We loved the freedom and comfort of a B&B. My grand daughter loved sitting on the porch swing listening to my stories. We walked through the gardens and loved the great food served at breakfast. Our room was cute and very comfortable. I would recommend this great B&B in the middle... More

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.
