We choose this BandB based on its location and amenities. Doug and Ben provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Downtown. Even though parking is at a premium, guests are provided the opportunity to park in the narrow drive overnight ( we twice took advantage of this option). Breakfasts are delicious and include fresh fruit , homemade...

We just returned from a great vacation in San Diego and our stay at this B&B. Location was within walking distance of Balboa Park, the zoo, Little Italy, and the waterfront. Very quiet, not the hustle and bustle of staying right in the city. I felt very safe walking in Balboa Park in the early morning hours. We stayed in...

the hosts are very kind are welcome you with a smile and a list of restaurants to go to. the brekfast are home made and you are woken up by the smell of home made bread. The only thing is to bring a mask for the eyes to sleep because there is a lot of light in the morning.

We stayed at the Keating House and had the best experience. The owners are friendly and informative, although we used to live in San Diego, so we didn't need too much guidance. We stayed in the Music Room which was downstairs and even when people were in the dining room for breakfast (which was great BTW), the walls are so...

We spent two comfortable nights at the Keating House. We were welcomed by the friendly owner with a comprehensive conversation about the inn and the activities in the area. We had a very comfortable room and enjoy our breakfast. The airplane noise was not a problem as suggested by another reviewer. It was not that loud; I am a light...

We were in San Diego recently for a convention and stayed in the yellow room at the Keating House. The house is lovely with bright colors, high ceilings, and comfortable furniture. The hosts, Doug and Ben, provided useful information for seeing the sights. They gave great recommendations for restaurants; we didn't have a bad meal while we were in San...

This house is amazing, I felt as if I should be wearing a crinoline. Ben and Doug the owners made us feel so welcome. The welcome talk and overview of the area was very informative and most helpful. We stayed in the 'music room' which had a beautiful iron four poster bed. The bathroom was perfectly finished with period shower...

The Keating House is in a pleasant neighborhood, very near Balboa Park, downtown, and the airport. The Inn is very comfortable, very clean, and the breakfasts, which are served in the lovely dining room, are gourmet. The innkeepers are very friendly and most accommodating. They even make a great pot of tea. I can't believe someone wrote a review about...

We were fortunate to secure a reservation for the Rock n Rock Marathon weekend. We stayed in the Cottage Suite, which was very roomy with a living area, kitchenette, bathroom, and bedroom. The suite was impeccably clean, and well furnished with everything we could need. The bedroom enjoyed french doors that led to a small patio area with tons of...

We stayed in the Lilac Room at the Keating House for only one night, the last night of our vacation. We were very pleased with our time there. Their policy is a two-night minimum stay but it worked out that we could stay for one night only. The hosts were pleasant, and took time as soon as we arrived to...

“Choose between rooms inside the main House, or at the rear in a stand-alone annex that provides a bit more "freedom". All are good.”
