I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy the RBI! The grounds abound with lush foliage, incredible aromas of blooming trees and flowers, tinkling fountains and peace and tranquility. I absolutely loved my stay and hated to leave! There is something for everyone...from couples to businessmen/women to families. I truly special and unique experience!

Dear Tina O, We didn't want you to leave either! Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write this review! RB Inn does have that charm and character with great landscaping that takes you away from the city. With all of the trees and flowers, I can see a little Hawaii here. It definitely gives you...

We decided to stay at the Rancho Bernardo Inn this past weekend and were extremely disappointed by the experience. First, our room was at the far end of the building, right next to the golf cart path which are constantly running all night long. The golf carts are not quiet, and have very loud motors, and rattle very loudly throughout...

I have lived in San Diego for over 25 years and had yet to experience the Rancho Bernardo Inn's spa amenities until a group of girlfriends decided to get together here and enjoy the pool, spa offerings, some poolside beverages and eats. First off, I made a wrong turn and became lost on my way to the spa. The property...

Dear ceshagen, What is that saying? "It's better late than never"? I'm so glad your girlfriends decided to get together and you were able to finally experience The Spa at RB Inn. 25 years is too long to not enjoy RB Inn.

This is truly one of the most beautiful locations I have stayed at for business or pleasure. The accommodations, food, service and environment are top notch. I loved every minute of my stay. I would like to come back to experience it again. I definitely recommend Rancho Bernardo for anyone who may be contemplating a visit. You won't be sorry.

We stayed there on a little get-a-way for two nights. We brought the dog and the hotel is set up perfect for a dog. First floor room with a nice patio and lawn area for the dog to soak up the sun and chase a few rabbits. The Veranda and the Bar were easy places to catch a late night...

I was not at all impressed with this establishment. The rooms are fairly large, but ready for refurbishment. The setting is nice, if you are a golfer. Check in is not until 4:00 pm and I would not recommend arriving much before that! A positive thing I would say is the food is very good.

I stayed at this hotel for almost a week as part of a conference. It is a lovely property, in the somewhat generic California sense (Spanish architecture, modish culinary offering, etc). The staff was very polite and unobtrusive, and the property was clean. The rate for the conference was outstanding, and the meeting facilities were both modern and attractive.. With...

The Rancho Bernardo Inn delivers on its promise of being an amazing hotel. The attention to detail on the public grounds and areas of the hotel really makes you feel you're in a special place. It almost feel historic but in the best way.

Lovely setting in this ranch style hotel. Stayed in fountains building (request top floor for rooms with vaulted ceilings). Room well appointed. Needed some small maintenance from use...paint chips, caulk, etc. Nice linens and towels. Shower pressure and fixtures were only OK. Nice pool and spa and the formal SPA looked wonderful although I didn't have time to visit it....
