We stayed local this time around and didn't realize what we were missing in our own backyard. Area was excellent with lots of places to eat. The home was wonderful and mostly enjoyed relaxing on the porch with a glass of wine. Had great conversation with Ann, hospitality was great! Can't wait to return!

When we called about reservations - this was the only place that still had any rooms available at a decent rate. That should have been a red flag. When we asked about the lower priced room, the owner said we could have the king bedroom for the same price. We hadn't read the reviews when we accepted. The "king" bed... More

The stay was very mixed, the owner was very nosy wanting to know what myself and my partner was doing, there was very little to eat for breakfast outside of cereal and a few croissants, the room was very dusty on the blinds and on the floor and there was not a television in the room in which this is...

We went out during the day when we left our room we made sure it was locked and when we would return the doors to our room were wide open, anyone could have come in and taken anything. The bedsheets are at least 10 years old and worn. The owner bob watches tv in the living room and you have... More

The owner has no respect about privacy. I came back to my room everyday finding the door of my room being opened, although I locked it every time I left my room. I certainly can related to other reviews concerning about the owner violating basic principles about hotel and lodging. I would not recommend anyone leave anything valuable in the... More

We spent 5 nights at the Kasa Korbett at the end of March/first of April 2008. It was a wonderful experience! My partner was attending an international convention at the San Diego Convention Center, but our research showed that the rates for hotels downtown near the convention center were double (and more) those of KK. The great reviews we read... More

If you like staying at B&Bs for their charm and homey feeling, you will want to think twice before booking a room at Kasa Korbett. While the Innkeeper, Bob, was helpful when we had questions about San Diego, the Inn itself leaves much to be desired. Our room was reasonably clean, but it was also worn and outdated. We have...

The place was full of dust, old sheets, old pillows, and old towels. The owner lounged in the living room all day/night watching TV, which was right where guests enter and exit. Everything is outdated including the appliances, windows, and walls which are paper thin. The "Pacific Room", which we stayed, was portrayed as a beautiful, lush room on the... More

I stayed last week at this wonderful property. One of the best things about it is the location - it is right in the middle of Hillcrest, walkable to lots of shopping, restaurants (some of the best in San Diego!), bars, etc. Even though it is conveniently located, we stayed at the back of the property in the New Orleans...

This is my first time staying at a B&B and I was very pleased! The location is great in that it is within a couple of blocks of the restaurants and shops of Hillcrest. The house was very comfortable and clean. I stayed in the Atlactic Suite and had my own private bath and outside entrance. Bob did an excellent... More
