Our "GO TO" Getaway

4,4 sur juin 09, 2015

Carole's B& B is our "go to" getaway when we come to San Diego to visit our son and family.We've been staying there at least twice a year for the last 8 years, and always enjoy our visit! We love the cozy quaintness of this 1800s built home, in a very quiet neighborhood. Carole and Michael are always welcoming and accommodating, and provide a delicious breakfast to begin our day. We always feel like we're visiting old "friends" when we come to stay!


Awesome place to feel at home

4,6 sur mai 07, 2015

I am an engineer who recently moved from Los Angeles to San Diego for work and I had an oppurtunity to stay at Carole's Bed and B'fast. Initially my plan was to stay there for a week and find my own place to move out. However it never happened and I ended up staying there for almost a month. From day 1 itself, I started feeling very comfortable and was having a homely feeling at Carole's. The place is right in the heart of North park with so many shops, restaurants and bars all around in a walkable distance. Carole and her partner Mike are very nice people and they take care of their customers and their needs with utmost care. They are very friendly and never make you feel that you're new here. In addition to the aforementioned good things, I'd also like to point out that her timings are quite flexible. Carole is very adjusting and not stringent about the Check in/Check out timings unlike corporate rip off hotel chains that we see everywhere. She's also very accommodating and adjusting about the B'fast timings. The breakfast is homely made and is very delicious. I am very happy with my stint over there at Carole's and I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone. So people who are looking for an economical, homely, warm-and-fuzzy place to stay, this is it!! Thank you Carole!


Home away from home

Comfortable home environment where we stay while in San Diego.


Carole is wonderful, but room needs a lot of work.

1,8 sur avril 11, 2015

I'm mystified by all the positive reviews of this B&B. Maybe the other rooms are nice, but the room that we stayed in, the Rose room, was awful. Carole is very friendly, there is free parking and the location is convenient, but the room we stayed in needs a lot of work before it can be called a B&B. There is no air conditioning, the bed is extremely uncomfortable, the lace curtains don't afford much privacy and the room needed to be cleaned and decluttered. We did not sleep well at all because of the bed and the headaches that we got from the dust in the room. I was willing to tough it out for the remainder of our reservation, but once I spent time in the bathroom in the morning, I knew that we had to leave. There is a window in the shower with a lace curtain over it. I had assumed that the window went to the exterior of the house, but apparently it connects to the kitchen. I could hear every word that Carole and her grandson were saying in the kitchen. It sounded as if we were in the same room. I felt as if I had no privacy while I was taking a shower and getting ready in the morning. I can't comment on the food because we left before breakfast was served.

Réponse du propriétaire
Most people who live in San Diego and the visitors feel that San Diego is air conditioned by Nature. Our usual temperature is 65 to 75 degrees. However, we do have rooms in the the Main Inn that are air conditioned and all of the Studios, the Casita and the Marine Suite are air conditioned. If that feature is important to them, folks usually request it and we comply. The windows in the bedroom have wooden blinds behind the lace curtains . Our beds are all firm, which most folks seem to prefer. I wish you had stayed for breakfast. We all have a good time every morning and the food is great, as you can tell by our reviews.


Feeling at home in San Diego

4,4 sur décembre 17, 2014

I stayed at Carole's Bed and Breakfast in December 2014. After a first visit 6 years ago, I looked forward to staying there again. The B&B is a home-like, Craftsman-built home in a quiet residential neighborhood an easy walk from the shops and restaurants of North Park, and bus connections to Balboa Park, the Zoo, and downtown San Diego. My room was pretty and clean, comfortable rather than "decorator stylish," with a settee, TV, books and magazines, a plush robe, and near the large bathroom. Guests also have access to the kitchen, a public living room and dining room. Carole's son cooks a different breakfast every day, although fresh fruit is available for light eaters. The two breakfasts I ate were a cheese and veggie omelette with good toast, and a Belgian waffle with berries and whipped topping. Carole is friendly, down-to-earth, and super helpful. I recommend her B&B highly for good value, tasty food, and friendly people.


A great stay!

I first stayed was about three years ago. My stay then was outstanding and my recent visit was beyond my expectations. Carole and Mike are excellent hosts and very accomodating. I arrived in the late morning and Carole and Mike were very prepared. They greet each guest on arrival, confirm the arrangements, and show the guest to the room. Mike cooks an excellent, healthy breakfast. The main dish is served with fruit and orange juice. Mike and Carole check with each guest before or after their breakfast to ensure each guest has directions or suggestions for local attractions. Carole's library includes books with more information on the local attractions. The Inn is located very close to the San Diego Zoo (located in Balboa Park), minutes from Downtown and a few blocks from the North Park neighborhood business district. During my visit the Inn was a block from the Chili Cookoff which offered various chilis and local microbrews. The Inn is located in a very quiet neighborhood for a large city. I was very impressed by Carole and Mike and look forward to my next visit.


Carol's B&B

Karen-June 19-26-2014 My first stay at a B&B and Carol made me feel right at home. Thanks for making my San Diego trip even more special.


A great way to travel

4,8 sur juillet 26, 2014

This was my first time at a B&B and I am so glad that it was here. Carol and her son Mike were wonderful. Carol was very helpful and made my stay there very comfortable. The breakfasts that Mike prepares are yummy and very filling. No continental breakfasts here!!!!!! I plan on staying at this B&B whenever I am in San Diego. Thank you Carol and Mike for a wonderful stay.


Great Location

Great breakfast, Close to Zoo & our Grand Children. Owner very accommodating.


Carole's is my favorite place to stay in San Diego

5 sur février 15, 2014

I've stayed at Carole's twice now. The people who run this place are the sweetest humans you could care to meet. Its a family business with a long long history and you feel it when you come in the door. Carole in particular is a kind, upbeat and lovely lady who obviously loves what she does. At Carole's you get a perfect balance of attention and "hands off". You get the sense they are available if you need them and you can have privacy if you want it. The space is warm with a nice dark wooden interior that feels like its always a holiday of some kind. The rooms are simple. They are in fact the rooms that you might find in an old school house like this one. The thing that I love about this place is you feel like you're part of some extended family when you come here. I know that sounds like something that an overly sentimental person might say. But it's true. Two other things. The breakfasts are amazing. This last time i was here I was served these killer greenish pesto eggs, a fruit plate and a muffin. They remembered that I like the licorice tea so they brought some from the back. Finally the neighborhood the house is in is my favorite in San Diego or close. Its basically Golden hill which is a beautiful and homey non-pretentious part of the city. it's central to everything. After breakfast check out The big kitchen down the end of 30th. These two things together give you a taste of truly the best of my version of San Diego.oh and Check out Carole's cool sweaters.
