... door, combination code for bicycles, combination code for outside box with beach chairs etc. Once we had worked it all out, we desperately needed a cup of tea.
The apartment certainly had the wow factor as soon as you walked though the door. The views were absolutely stunning and the apartment was very well equipped and maintained. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the bay, with access directly onto the board walk and beach. Could not ...
... blog doesn't show near that as it calculates the as-the-crow-flys mileage. Which still does not sound right, have you watched crows fly, they land on every tall tree. The blog has had over 2,000 views. That means my six friends are really staying up late. I have posted 400 pictures on 44 entries. Yes, I know I stole some of the pictures. The bad news: As we head into Mexico the 3G gets turned off. That means we don't go dark, but a little gray. ...
... City these days? The place is exploding with newer, larger, flashier ways to take your money and lots of other money sinks riding on the coattails of the big name casinos.
So, without any travel excitement like dragging tow bars, no activities like 4 wheeling or sleeping under the stars and no scenery that not been seen before, here's a snapshot of life on the bus.

... the Historic City Tour. The tour was amazing, we could have hopped on and off but Glen was a great guide so we just let him do his stuff and enjoyed the ride. We sat behind a jet taking off at one point which was loud. The tour took us around the bay and across the magnificent bridge to swanky Coronado. We had safety announcements from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Humphrey ...
... San Diego. We stopped off at Mission Beach which had great strip of little beach houses, shops and restaurants. We hopped on a wooden roller coaster which wobbled from left to right frantically and spent a little time in the Arcade gambling our tokens away. After some lovely frozen yoghurt (great here in the U.S) we continued our journey down south. The southern point had a lot of war related history with museums, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Keating House San Diego
The biggest clue is that the owners do not live there.
Our first Bed and Breakfast
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Keating House. It was our first trip to San Diego as husand and wife. Our hosts were very helpful and our room was the best. We both wanted to bring the bed back home with us. Breakfast was excelent, with something different each morning. We plan to go back on our fifth aniversary.
Great Place to stay and discover SD
This was my first time to SD. I can't say how great Ben and Scott are. They welcomed us and gave us a quick breakdown of how the city is organized and how best to get around. Always recommending a good place to eat. Also reminded us to put on sun screen. LOL!!!
Breakfast was served from 8 to 10 am. Always included some fresh fruit. The fresh baked bread and jams were tasty.
We stayed in the "Blue Room" since there were three of us traveling together and our bathroom was across the hall. The gardens were in full bloom and beautiful.
It was unfortunate that I had already planned on moving up to La Jolla, I would've gladly stayed at Keating House the entire week we were there. I PLAN to stay there again on my next trip to SD.
Convenient but noisy
Location was very convenient to convention center, but planes flew over every five minutes throughout the day and night. We were in the small house in back of the main B&B, and found the noise very bothersome. The closet space in the accomodations also left something to be desired, as the armoir was too narrow to both hang clothing and shut the armoir door. Breakfasts were very nice, location was great, free parking was a plus, and overall price was right.
This place is absolutely superb!
We were very impressed with the Keating House. We didn't know much about the place coming from Michigan, but we found our room to be very clean, spacious, and elegant. The inn keepers were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. For me, perhaps the best part of the stay was the gourmet breakfasts we were served each morning. The breakfast began with fresh fruit of the day, followed by an entree (quiche, etc.). They also baked fresh bread every day that was served with homeade jam. We stayed in the rose room (actually kind of salmon colored) which was excellent. We stayed at the Hotel Del Coronado the first three nights of our honeymoon, and we found the Keating house to be just as nice. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
First, the positive, since this was mostly positive. The location is great for an in-town place, halfway between the Gaslamp and Hillcrest, minutes from the I-5 and Balboa Park. in a lovely, uncrowded Uptown neighborhood (Banker's Hill) with easy free parking.
My husband and I actually live in the San Diego area and were looking for someplace to go to run away from home for a few days without having to do any real travel. I happened upon the Keating House on this web site and we decided to give it a try. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Doug cooked the guests wonderful breakfasts that were very appealing and very tasty. The house is great, (they've done a nice job of restoring it), and the location is also great as it's only a few blocks from Balboa Park, close to some great restaurants in Hillcrest, close to downtown and it's quiet. There is easy access to many things to do without the noise that often accompanies that access. I enjoyed this much more than I would have enjoyed staying in a hotel downtown which is what we originally thought we would do. If you enjoy a B&B atmosphere I highly recommend the Keating House.
What a great B&B! I spent two nights at Keating House and would recommend it to anyone. I found the location ideal- within walking distance to Balboa Park and Little Italy- and in a safe, quiet but interesting residential neighborhood, which is also a short bus ride from downtown and the Hillcrest area. A good "base" from which to explore San Diego.The room was comfortable, homey- and clean. Good bed, good towels- nothing super fancy, but everything you need. (to be picky- I'd suggest bringing your own bath products b/c what's provided is pretty utilitarian- J&J shampoo, for example- very inoffensive, but when you're on vacation, you may want something more exciting) The house was quiet, which was nice, but it wasn't a museum, which I also appreciated.The breakfasts were quite good (make sure you have some homemade bread) The owners are also great resources for SD information, and will sit with you and orient you to the city and activities, nearby restaurants, etc... they are great, gracious hosts.It was my first trip to SD, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Be sure to take a walk to Extraordinary Desserts- which, while spendy, is a fun place for some coffee and after-theater sweets.And a final plug for mass transit- take the SD Trolley- it's great.
Our experience at the house was mostly wonderful. The house has a lot of charm. Owners were wonderful and helpful. Breakfasts were amazing.
Just beware and do not leave any valuables in your room. We learned our lesson.
My wife and I couldn't have had a better experience for our first trip to San Diego or got so much for our money! The house has lots of character and Doug and Ben were fantastic hosts, giving us all kinds of advice on things to do, places to eat, where to park...they had all the insider info. And the breakfasts were out of this world! The neighborhood is great - safe and walking distance to some excellent shops and restaurants and Balboa Park. Try Extraordinary Deserts (a few blocks away) for a late night treat.
