My sister & I stayed at Mudville Flats and we absolutely LOVED it! The room is beautiful, charming, inviting, cozy and serene. It feels like you're at home but it's so much nicer than your own! The bed is HUGE and so cozy, we slept so peacefully. We also felt very safe staying here!

We were amazed because everything we needed was in this room. You have a kitchen with pots & pans, stove, microwave, a fridge, utensils and more! We loved having this kitchen because it saved us so much money on food! We loved the closet space and it had a beautiful mirror so you can see your outfit. They had extra blankets, plenty of towels and a makeup mirror. There was not one thing missing from this room!

We picked up dinner from this yummy place called Kebabs. We brought it back to our room and ate it at the dining room table. It was so fun!!!

They have an outside area that is charming! We loved having our wine out there! You can eat out there anytime you want and there's a grill there too.

We LOVED the location because you are so close to everything and you can walk everywhere. There was a grocery store a couple blocks down along with coffee shops, restaurants and shopping!

It was such a pleasure meeting Mike & Linda! They are so warm and inviting that you feel you have known them forever! You feel loved and taken care of by them! Whatever you need they are there for you. They are truly genuine and happy to help you!

Mudville Flats is fabulous and we highly recommend it!!!

We have been to many B&Bs and Villas around the world, but this one in the Gaslamp is outstanding.
Mike and Linda preempted our every need and wish.
They also recommended the perfect places for us to visit.
We will definitely be back.

Each of the four rooms in this small hotel is a fully functioning apartment. The apartments are nicely restored, not modern, but comfortable and quiet. Reliable internet and coffee in the room. There's no maid or room service but having a kitchen and nearby shops more than makes up for it.

There is a pretty patio and bikes to borrow.

The hotel is located a mile from the waterfront hotels and convention center but an easy walk, particularly given San Diego's perfect weather.

The owners live in the building and are welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. Linda gave me a ride to the airport - what could be nicer.

The only downside for some would be that it lacks the amazing water views that the big hotels have.

Other than that - perfection. A nice break from sterile hotels.

We spent a week at Mudville flats. Everything was just perfect; the comfortable bed, the garden, the decorations. The location was close to public transportation and to the gas lamp district with its wonderful restaurants. The best thing about our stay was our hosts. We arrived late and Linda brought us some yogurt for our breakfast. We left on a 6am train and Linda insisted on driving us to the Amtrak station..

My wife and I stayed at Mudville Flats for our honeymoon and it was a home-run of a choice. The rooms are beautiful, and each one has recently installed easy to use temperature controls so that you're not subject to the whims of the management. Mike and Linda were friendly, welcoming, and very helpful. Although not in a beautiful area of town, this is a terrific location for getting around to all of the attractions of the downtown area and beyond; it's easy access to I-5 and other major highways without being right on top of them. Although on Trip Advisor Mudville Flats falls in the "Bed & Breakfast" category, there is actually no breakfast. What there is instead is a full kitchen in each flat with 3 grocery stores in a 10 minute walk and lots of restaurants. This is actually a great set-up because it allows you maximum breakfast flexibility - you can have what you want, when you want it, where you want it, wearing whatever you want. There are parking spots in a garage across the street which come with the room - you should get a compact car if you can because one of the spots is meant for a compact car. If you can't, then tell Mike and Linda as soon as you can, so you can get the larger parking spot if possible. The building itself is a historic building, meaning that the original bathtubs are there - not large enough for an adult to take a bath, but easy to control the temperature for a shower using the two knobs. Mudville Flats provides easy access to the Gaslamp District without being right on top of it, so you don't have to deal with the noise. The same is true of Petco Park (baseball stadium), which has a nice park you can walk through even when it's the off season. The back has a gorgeous patio which attracts hummingbirds; there are also bikes there which you can ride for free down to the ferry to Coronado Island. Mudville Flats does not have an impersonal check-in desk, but rather Linda or Mike will go with you to your room to show you how everything works and where everything is in the building. Maps are in the room, and Mike and Linda are available by phone at any time for anything that comes up. When asked, they also provide great advice about any type of food you might want to find and the best way to get there. The rooms are very spacious, with a bedroom, kitchenette, and large living room. The beds themselves are also very large and comfortable. Mike and Linda are also quick to respond to e-mailed inquiries in advance of arrival. If you bring DVDs (though they have some upstairs), they can hook a DVD player up to the large TV in each room - much better than watching on a computer screen. There are not a huge number of outlets around, but how many things do you need to plug in at once? Finally, though it may seem like a small thing, not only do they provide you with beach towels, but the bath towels are very comfortable. Is Mudville Flats perfect? No. No place is. But it's about as close as you can hope to get.

Room Tip: Any room is good; if you tell Mike and Linda what you specifically want, they can put you in the best room for it.
