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

Quaint and Quiet!
