“the perfect spot!”
Reviewed 17 November 2006

Two of us spent three nights at the San Diego Bed and Breakfast. What a wonderful place! We so enjoyed our stay!

The guest apartment is beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate.

Our days started out with more food that two people could possibly eat [although we did our best]. Each morning we were faced with three kinds of muffins, bagels, bread, yogurt, cereal, biscotti, at least six kinds of fresh fruit, juice, milk, great coffee--plus a local paper.

The person I went with pretty much violently opposes the idea of a B&B because of all the people one usually has to greet and eat with. However, because SDBB has only the one apartment, there are no other guests to see. And the owners creep into the kitchen and leave breakfast quickly and quietly, so you don't need to talk to them if you don't wish to. However, they were available when needed, for example, to help us technophobes use their Wi-Fi.

If you love the idea of a B&B, but also love your privacy, this is the place for you!

My wife and I spent three nights of our honeymoon here while in Southern California. It was great.

The rooms look exactly like the pictures on their website - everything is very comfortable and clean. They have a leather couch, recliner, and 37" flat-screen TV/DVD/Surround Sound in the living room, as well as Internet if you bring a laptop. The bedroom has a double bed, small TV, CD player, dresser, and closet. The bathroom has a shower/tub and vanity. The kitchen has a full refrigerator/freezer, washer/dryer, sink, stove, microwave, toaster, coffee machine, and a table for two. There is central air-conditioning and heating, if needed.

The proprietors bring a BIG breakfast up at 8 AM. They come in the side door to the kitchen, so you don't even have to see them, and they don't wake you up or anything like that. The breakfast has fresh fruits, brie & crackers, bagels/muffins/scones, cereal, trail mix, juice, milk, coffee, and biscotti. We were eating it for a good portion of each day.

They do a good job of paying attention to details, such as turning down the bed, fresh flowers when we arrived, etc. There are small, basic toiletries in the medicine cabinet if you forgot something important.

This property is a one-bedroom apartment in the "guest house" behind the owners' own residence, so you are in your own free-standing building -- nobody above/below you. They have a fountain in the yard. There is a small neighborhood market around the corner that you can walk to if you want lunch/dinner.

We were very pleased with our stay here. It is perfect if you are looking for a quiet getaway spot. It is very romantic.

We were in town for a conference and decided to look for something a little different than the typical downtown conference hotel. We're big fans of B&B's, particularly ones with a 'cottage' type arrangement. The San Diego B&B was perfect. The proprietors are incredibly warm and thoughtful.

Never have we stayed in a place where every detail was so carefully thought through, and their taste was beautiful. It was like staying in a finely decorated 1 bedroom apartment. We felt so at home, that we skipped several conference dinners in favor of take-out in our room.

The flat screen TV, surround sound system, wireless internet were a guy's dream - while the pottery barn furniture, great linens, and roses in the room were perfect for her.

We whole-heartedly recommend the San Diego B&B, even though we really would love it to stay our little secret...

Booked the San Diego B&B from the website - my husband and I stayed 6 nights in the apartment style rooms. I have travelled all around the world for business and pleasure and stayed in some amazing hotels and I can safely say if this was a hotel it would be getting 5 stars with room to spare.

The room was excellent very high spec also get wireless free - the bed was really comfy and the place was lovely and quiet ideal for rest! Breakfast was served every morning at 8am in your room - a feast. Location central to everything in San Diego. The best thing is the hosts two of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet and nothing is too much trouble for them - I would recommend this place in a heartbeat check out the wesite [--]
