We spent 3 nights here and really enjoyed it. Ann was very accommodating with excellent local restaurant recommendations and advice on getting around. We stayed in the attached cottage, which was very quiet. The bed was so comfortable. A friend had stayed here, and highly recommended it to us. We're glad we stayed here too, and would recommend staying here... More

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at this B&B. Ann will instantly make you feel welcome and at home. She gave us a tour of the house, and explained the parking that is available either in front of the house, or in the rear. We never had trouble parking. We stayed upstairs in the Zoo room. The room... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here over president's day weekend and had a great time. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it! The inn is well situated in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego. It is well within walking distance of great restaurants and shops and is an easy drive to Balboa Park. We stayed in... More

After a 7 hour drive we arrived in sunny San Diego. The Hillcrest house is located in Hillcrest, which is known for its' gender friendliness and multicultural neighbourhood. Since we love that, we felt welcome and home. Ann the owner was at a conference and we were greeted by Thea the In-Sitter. She is from San Diego and a great... More

Our stay started with a wonderful warm welcome from Ann who checked us in and made us feel right at home. Our room was clean and comfortable, a great double bed and we even had a small well equipped kitchenette. Off street parking was also available. Breakfast in the dinning room was more than adequate and was a great time... More

Hillcrest House immediately gives you delight in your surroundings. Ann, the innkeeper, after a brief history on the house, was at the ready for where to go and where to eat. The Inn is close to a wide variety of restaurants in the neighborhood. We started the day early with a brisk walk to Balboa Park and came "home" to... More

We have traveled to San Diego many times and stayed in several hotels. We weren't really happy with any of them, so we decided to try a B & B. Hillcrest House looked great on Trip Advisor, so we called Ann and made a reservation. We were very happy staying at Hillcrest House. We think it is a real value.... More

Ann was a wonderful host - we enjoyed chatting to her so much, we missed precious time in the Zoo! She has a beautiful home and is a very welcoming, interesting, fun hostess. Great choice of places to eat within easy walk. We'd love to go back and have recommended to friends.

We really enjoyed our stay with Ann and Theyes (who was the temporary innkeeper while Ann was away). It's a great location to get anywhere. The rest of our party stayed up in LaJolla and we found them coming to where we were most of the time and it was only a just drive to there place. Great restaurants in... More

On the day we arrived, we were lucky that Ann, the owner of the B&B, still had one room available. It was the start of 2 great days in San Diego. For Europeans, the house has a real American charm which is even more than matched with Ann's hospitality. The room was nicely decorated, the bed very good, bathroom superclean... More
