  • We were fortunate enough to have a gentleman who had lived in the house as our tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about preservation. This added an extra level to our visit. As said elsewhere, the gift shop and personnel were also a treat.
  • 5 stars for the house, gorgeous Craftsman style home. Beautiful woodwork and lovely room layout. 1 star for our guide, who was confusing and even quite rude. House is beautiful though, do visit and hope for a better guide. Woman in the gift shop was very pleasant.
  • Had a very interesting tour in a cool old mansion. Probably not exciting for kids but if you enjoy 1900 s home and seeing how the other half lives stroll on over . $15 but check first to see if they are open..
  • If you like architecture, you better go see this beautiful house and garden. The tour was informative and not too expensive. Go see it.
  • I tried to tour Marston House yesterday (Monday, July 31) during their supposed hours of operation and found it to be closed. Then I found out on my phone it was closed for renovation. I was not told this at the Balboa Park visitor's center. Nor was there any notice on the door. What a waste of time. I was most disappointed and peeved. I probably will not bother to stop back if I am in San Diego in the future. - Kaye Judt
