My last visit to Rancho Bernardo Inn was years ago. The rooms have been very nicely renovated. The bathrooms are a little small. Restaurant choices are limited; but, excellent. If you plan to play golf this hotel is an excellent option. The only problem we encountered were indifferent valets. We returned to the hotel on a Saturday night with chaos...

My wife and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary here. We have a 3 and 6 year old so we couldn't travel very far or very long.

If you want a unique high quality hotel experience, this is a great place. This was my second business conference at this location and the entire service experience was fantastic. The setting is so different than most other hotel settings and it is difficult not to relax.

Dear 10scottf, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and more importantly, thank you for traveling and staying with us.

Nice cozy place. Not new and flashy, but everything is well kept and in great functional order. I thought the bed was comfortable, the room clean, the nice large flat screen good and the bathroom clean and large.

We came here because of a wedding in the area. The location is very far from the usual locations where one would visit when going to San Diego.

Kyle from the front desk was always there to help me with anything I needed. He provided excellent customer service with a gracious attitude. The campus is beautiful.
