“Perfect way to enjoy San Diego”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We stayed at the Mudville Flats for 8 nights over New Years Eve 2011. We arrived early on our check-in date and so we took the time we had to check the nearest surroundings. Only a few blocks away you´ll find the famous Gaslamp Quarter, a historic district where you can shop and in our case have breakfast. The flats itself offer a unique experience. They are really cozy and you see the efforts Linda and Mike put into their apartments in every detail. The rooms are clean, the bed is great and the kitchen with all its appliances gives you a great chance to keep your vacation reasonably priced (a supermarket is in walking distance) :). If you need anything during your stay, Linda and Mike help you out wherever they can. We had a perfect time in San Diego and would recommend the Mudville Flats for a great San Diego experience!

We found this awesome place on Trip Advisor and am so thankful we did. This was my first time ever to California and Mudville Flats is the perfect spot to stay if you want to fall in love with San Diego!!! The Flat was perfect--had ALL the comforts of home,the cozy kitchen, the spacious bathroom, the WONDERFULLY comfortable bed and the soothing leather sofa with all the cute lamps!!! Linda was the GREAT!!! She was very informative about each and everything about the room and informed us of all types of places to see/eat and visit. Since we were only there for 2 nights and 1 day--of course we didn't even get to see near as much as we'd like--but that is okay as it gives us a reason to revisit and stay in the heart of San Diego and the warmth and convenience that Mudville Flat offers. San Diego is one hugh playground and one that I dream of coming back to continue playing in again someday in our near future. Thank you Linda and Mike!!!! You are a wonderful people living in a wonderful paradise and I am so thankful you guys are so nice to share it with us. Sincerely, Cheryl & Tim Rop, South Carolina

My wife and I stayed at this precious inn last week for six nights. The accommodations are superb. The king-sized bed is amazingly comfortable. The ambiance is a nice mix of Craftsman style, baseball memorabilia, and Zen. This is a great combination for Easterners, one artist and one baseball fan, who live in a Craftsman style bungalow with lots of Buddhas. The efficient kitchen allowed an occasional break from restaurant fare. The proprietors, Linda and Mike, are friendly and most helpful. Their enthusiasm for San Diego is contagious. They live on sight and are readily available. The location is walking distance from terrific restaurants. The private parking was definitely an asset. We were easy driving distance for everything we wanted to see including the Zoo, Coronado Island, La Jolla, Torrey Pines and more. Mudville Flats is a short drive to the airport, an added convenience. I had high expectations given the reviews I read. Even those expectations were exceeded.

My wife, "Mickey" Mantle, recently offered a trip to San Diego to celebrate my eleventh consecutive 60th birthday. Our choice of Mudville Flats was based mostly on the rave reviews displayed on this page by earlier guests .

Others have extolled the delightful marriage here of 19th century design and ambience with 21st century comfort and convenience at this unique inn, along with the charming bonus, even to Canadians, of the baseball memorabilia. They were spot on.

Even more pleasing for us, though, was the hospitality and guidance offered by our hosts, Linda and Mike. (Imagine my delight at being greeted at the door on my birthday with a solo H BD greeting, and a bottle of merlot strung to a celabratory balloon!)

Both Linda and Mike were available 24/7 without ever being intrusive.

Trust me. We've never found a more restful and convenient stop anywhere!

We had three nights in Flat D at Mudville, and loved our stay! The flat was furnished really well, with some lovely antiques.
The flat was large, and had everything we wanted, it was lovely at the end of the day to come back and sit out on the peaceful balcony. Linda was really helpful, and recommended several places to eat, which were all really good.
Situated not too far from the Gaslamp area, we found it an easy walk to all the sights and to the boardwalk to get the ferry over to Coronado. We mentioned that we were going to the airshow at Miramar while we were there, so Mike printed us a map and directions.
This was our first trip to San Diego, and we loved it - we will definatley visit again, and stay at Mudville.

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend if September 10th. We were traveling to shoot a wedding, but also planned on taking some time to hit up the museums at Balboa Park and to relax. I'll admit that this place wasn't my first choice, but I am really glad we stayed here!!! Beautiful rooms and a gorgeous little patio yard outback. I ADORE bungalow style design and this place was perfect! One of the owners, Mike, was a super nice guy and really made us feel comfortable. Definitely recommend and will stay here again :-)

We stayed at the Mudville Flats Aug 19 - 21. My husband & I just live in North County, but didn't have a lot of time for a "get-away", so opted for a "stay-cation" for our anniversary. What a treat! Linda was so helpful & knowledgeable about things to do in the area, including things that would interest someone who is not a tourist! She also presented us with an amazing bottle of wine as a GIFT for our anniversary! The area has some great restaurants - one of our favorites was the Cowboy Star. We tried several of the places recommended, all were fabulous. The apartments are a wonderful craftsman style and take you back to a different era with wood paneling, beams, floors. The bed... so comfortable! Prices are so reasonable, we will definitely be back!
