Booked after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. They were, as usual, right on the money! Stayed 2 nights in the "cottage" with 2 other couples in our party (3 rooms in all). Ann is a wonderful host and makes you feel as if you are family. Rooms were well-appointed and comfortable. The neighborhood of Hillcrest is centrally located and convenient... More

I spent 5 nights with Ann and Barbara and Callie. What a wonderful, relaxing experience. Healthy breakfasts, comfy beds, plenty of privacy, or a little conversation when you need it. 5 Stars for a stellar B&B. The bus line for downtown is a block away and University Ave. in the Hillcrest neighborhood was filled with outstanding restaurants and shops, We... More

She gave us suggestions for places to go and to eat when we asked her. The room was clean and comfortable, as was the entire house. The homemade muffins were... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hillcrest House Bed & Breakfast in San Diego, CA. Ann, the Innkeeper’s, warm personality made me feel very welcome and comfortable. My room was beautifully decorated and had the comforts of a luxury hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable. I had a private entrance with a small private porch. The buffet breakfast included...

My wife and I spent 6 days at Ann Callahan's bed and breakfast - Hillcrest House. We found her website on the internet and were immediately attracted to the facility as it is a Craftsman home, similar in appearance to our home. We found Ann and her home to be warm and welcoming, and from the moment we entered we... More

This was our first visit to San Diego, CA... and staying at this B&B made it feel just like home. Ann is a wonderful person and a terrific host. Her house is absolutely beautiful- the private amenities in your room are fantastic. One of the greatest features also was the wonderful aroma in the morning of fresh muffins being baked...... More

This delightful oasis is nestled on the immediate outskirts of San Diego (a $10 cab ride from the waterfront). We stayed 8 days and felt very much at home with Ann and the other guests. The welcoming cottage decor encourages the travellor to feel 'right at home' which we did immediately on arrival. The beds are super comfortable and after... More

My wife and I visited San Diego for four days and chose Hillcrest House B&B after reading the reviews on this site.
