“Beach Hut Bed and Breakfast”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

It is no wonder that The Beach Hut Bed & Breakfast is the number one B&B in San Diego. The location is ideal. Recreation, Restaurants, everything is very close. Our room was delightful, and Linda has paid attention to every detail, as well as anticipated all of her guests needs. Each guest has a private reserved parking space, which is very important since there is little street parking at this location.The room has a well stocked refrigerator, and the bed is very comfortable. Linda has special bedding for her guests along with real Turkish towels in the bath. Linda and Norm are available 24 hours a day should you need anything. They are wonderful hosts, and I highly recommend that you stay with them.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms available and both are delightful. One however is more like a suite with a...

I spent 2 days after conference with my boyfriend to just relax in San Diego. I knew the high rating of Beach Hut so went in with high expectations---- main gradient for disappointment. BUT, everything was perfect!! I didn't get to meet Linda but Norm was always around to answer questions and give help. We spent half a day just sitting in the comfortable chair enjoy the weather and reading books. It was also fun at night to sit around the bonfire when it gets chilly. The location was nice, 2 min walk to the beach. We had a rental car, so getting around was easy. Plus they provide parking, which is apparently a rare luxury in san diego. We'd love to come back again for the absolute quiet and comfort.
Sorry I can't write more words but would love to get this review out so.. here I copy and paste....

My wife and I took a recent 4 day Oct vacation to San Diego, first outing, found Beach Hut on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Centrally located, great eateries/beachwalk/sightseeing. Joe's Crab Shack a nice place to watch the World Series, Seaworld a must, and the SD Trolley tour was not only informative but gives a visitor a glimpse of all the major "boroughs" of SD. Linda (and Norm) are exceptional hosts, always accessible, and provide a nice niche for a couple getaway. We could have easily stayed an extra week with a much less hectic agenda.

There is no question why this place is the best B&B in San Diego! My husband and I stayed here for three nights during our California vacation. It was the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate from our hectic lives, and before a family wedding in Palm Springs. We really felt well taken care of from the moment we knocked on the door. Linda greeted us by name, and escorted us to our room. She gave us a comprehensive orientation to San Diego, and has an impressive binder with suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing, shopping, rentals, etc. The binder has very detailed maps and tips...you can't go wrong following their advice! We took up many of their suggestions and enjoyed ourselves.

The accommodations are wonderful. Linda and Norm did a great job with the design and decorating. The kitchenette was stocked with pastries, fruit, juice, milk, coffee, cereal, and lots of condiments. I liked having breakfast already stocked in our room, so we could sleep in and not worry about waking up for a scheduled breakfast. There is free wifi. The TV can be adjusted to any angle, and has hundreds of channels. However, you may not be watching too much TV since the B&B is literally steps from the bay. My husband and I enjoyed walking to the beaches and enjoying the boardwalk; the B&B is conveniently located far away enough so that you don't feel like you are in a loud touristy area. It is the best of both worlds...a quiet, safe neighborhood setting with easy access to busier areas.

Every morning we enjoyed breakfast in the beautiful courtyard. There is a pool, firepit, and several sitting areas. We visited in October so it was a bit too chilly for the pool, but it is gorgeous to look at nonetheless. We enjoyed sitting by the fire in the evening.

The location and room are amazing, but what really makes this place stand out is the service. Linda and Norm are gems who truly give you what you need to enjoy your trip. They are more than happy to help you out, but are respectful of your privacy. My husband and I definitely plan to stay here the next time we are in San Diego. I have already raved about this place to several friends!

The Beach Hut B&B is a must for those that would like a centrally located place to stay in San Diego. You will pay too much for a hotel and not receive all the personal attention that Norm and Linda provide you with before, during and after your stay. This B&B is an amazing property - beautiful accommodations (that will make it hard for you to leave and sightsee, which you must do because you are so close to so many places of interest, i.e.; the beach one block over, yeah, you read that right). Did I mention Norm and Linda provide your accommodations with bountiful breakfast selections, a personal parking spot (which is an unbelievable perk), bedding and bath linens that you would LOVE to have in your home, beautiful and tranquil garden setting, a small pool (it was too cool to go in when we visited) and the list could go on and on.
Linda provided us with attractions not to miss and restaurants that were spot on. (Review the book in your accommodations...you need to follow their suggestions!)
Again, it was hard to come home, but alas our lives are here in Texas. We will visit San Diego again in the future and when we do we will contact Norm and Linda at the Beach Hut B&B. Thank you for an incredible stay.

If the rating chart would go to 100, that's what we would easily give Norm and Linda's wonderful B&B. My wife and I went there for a wedding and did feel a little guilty for not spending more time than we should have with the family, but we loved our arrangements so much we couldn't get back there fast enough. Location is prime. My brother and his wife stayed at a large hotel that was 15 minute beach walk from us. Comparison wasn't even close. The sad thing is that my brother paid over 20% more and had to pay for their breakfasts each of the four days they were there. As for the Innkeepers and owners, Norm and Linda are extremely personal and cater to your every need. My wife and I are coffee and water drinkers and they made sure that we were well supplied. They do their shopping at Trader Joe's to help keep us healthy. The variety of food offered was excellent and fresh but impossible to eat all of it. My wife and I had our breakfast each morning by the pool and enjoyed a quiet serene start to our days. Due to the wedding and other obligations, we only experienced one evening in the yard with our bottle of wine, next to the fire pit. This is the PERFECT place for two couples to meet in the San Diego area. I can keep going with great accolades like the clean and quiet beach, great vista while walking the beach, close to many attractions and safe, etc. Norm and Linda, you just made customers for life and we want to thank you for the great mini vacation. See you very soon!

Green Features: Organic food is offered. Outstanding and well kept vegetation. They practice recycling anything they can. Oh, and let's not forget the nice birdbath in the back yard that is actually used by the smallest little birds (don't know the type).
