A Quality Experience

5 on October 11, 2013

Ann was an excellent host, advising on how to make best use of the short time in San Diego. Good location within walking distance of lots of cafes and restaurants, and close to Balboa Park and the beaches. A pleasant renovated house from the 20s, keeping many of the special features of that time but with all services updated. An example of what makes B and B such a pleasant way to travel.


Enjoyed our stay

4.2 on September 18, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Hillcrest House. It was conveniently located, and provided a nice, private place for us in the house at the back, complete with a private patio. The bathroom was large and very clean, and we also liked having a kitchenette. It was great talking to Ann about the history of the house, and she was very knowledgeable about the Hillcrest community. This B&B offers a continental breakfast with fresh baked muffins, not a full cooked-to-order breakfast, but it was perfect for us.


Fantastic Stay

My wife and I recently stayed at the Hillcrest Bed and Breakfast and we loved it. The room was excellent. The service was spectacular! The only knock would be on the breakfast. Nothing special about it at all.


Our Romantic Get Away

5 on July 27, 2012

It was a week getaway with a plan of not getting on an Aircraft. We found a wonderful getaway in Hillcrest we drove to. Ann reached out to us to make sure she could meet and greet us as we entered her home. She recommended a restaurant and we followed her advice. It was wonderful. We discovered the history and ambiance Hillcrest has to offer. Hillcrest is close to all the activities and historical places to be found in San Diego. Ann you provide Great Value and a perfect home environment for our stay and Getaway. Thank You…….J&M

Perfect little B & B for our getaway! We met great people, walked to local shops and restaurants and explored San Diego for our Anniversary getaway!


OUR STAY - HILLCREST HOUSE B&B

5 on February 29, 2012

Of all the B&B's we have stayed at in the United States, Hillcrest House is our favourite to date. To start with, Ann Callahan is gracious and a most delightful person to know. Public transit is readily accessible to virtually anywhere in the San Diego area for those without a car. For us, the real highlight of the Hillcrest area are the incredible restaurants that are all within walking distance of this B&B, all very reasonably priced and some of the finest cuisine we've ever experienced. This is one B&B that we definitely plan on staying at again - it was great!


The Perfect Hideaway

5 on January 10, 2012

Ann, We so loved our stay at Hillcrest House. The Balboa room was terrific; so very quiet and private. We absolutely loved our time there. Your breakfasts are just fabulous. I couldn't believe all that was available. The fresh fruit, especially the fresh berries, was fantastic. Thayes was the perfect hostess. How fortunate for you to have found such a wonderful stand-in for you when you have to be gone. She was so fun to talk with. My hubby and I ate only 2 meals a day: a large breakfast and then another meal in the evening. We loved the brochure telling about the restaurants/shops in the area. We ate at a Greek restaurant (Daphne's, as I remember) in the area the first evening. It seemed to be a take-out restaurant with a sit-down area (we ate on site). The food was fantastic and the presentation of the food was certainly far better than what one would normally expect from a 'take-out' restaurant. We loved it. We also ate at the Saigon on Fifth restaurant our last night there. It was also fantastic. We were surprised at how reasonable the prices were, given the interior of the place. We couldn't have asked for a better, more private, place to stay than Hillcrest House. So nice not to hear the proverbial noise next door, cars starting up, horns, airport noise, etc, . . . all the stuff you usually find in a regular hotel/motel. We are already talking about returning on our 1-year anniversary.


Great B&B

4.8 on November 23, 2010

My husband and I had an intensive scientific conference to attend in San Diego, and it was our first experience to stay in Bad and Breakfast. This was a wonderful B&B, and we feel lucky to have found it. We stayed in the Balboa Room an it was small enough, but was very clean and nicely decorated, the bed was very comfortable and nice, and I love the bathroom! We want to thanks Ann (owner) for making our stay at the Hillcrest B&B a most pleasant one. We are looking forward to our next visit. Alex and Larissa


Oasis

5 on August 15, 2010

I had an intensive Real Estate Conference to attend and Hilcrest provided me with unparalleled service and value for my $. Ann has been in the hospitality business forever and it shows. She knows how to provide a quality service for clients, who loyally troup back to her door routinely. It was a much needed respite in a wonderful oasis!!! "Lucky" Lindy Gelber


Lisa and Patrick's 20th Anniversary

4.8 on February 13, 2010

My husband and I stayed at the Hillcrest House B&B for our 20th wedding anniversary in February, 2010. The house is charming, spotlessly clean, and very well-maintained. The Gaslamp room was warm, cozy and intimate, and I loved the bathroom! The bed was very comfortable, as was the whole house. Ann is a very warm and welcoming host, and she made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend the Hillcrest House.
