This was the perfect spot for my grandson and me after a long day at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Don and Suzy managed to make us feel right at home (we had all the comforts of home--T.V., wi-fi, jacuzzi, movies to choose from, extremely comfortable bed)--and also give us our own space. We also enjoyed sitting outside on... More

We stayed with Don and Susie when we were in the area for a wedding at the Ranch at Bandy Canyon. Where to start? The food was great-especially the French Toast. Coffee on demand from the well stocked Kureg. Very comfortable beds, quiet neighborhood. Hot hot tub and great shower. Susie stocks the bathroom so if you forgot something, chances... More

Two dear friends and I took over the whole three bedroom place. I had read reviews and was hopeful of a positive experience. We were BLOWN AWAY! The place is way better than photos portray! QUAINT is a word too small. The 1888 Inn is amazing. Decor perfecto. The breakfast that others reviewers have raved about, lived up to those... More

You're in good hands when Don and Suzy are your hosts. They were very welcoming and helpful to me. The breakfast is quite tasty. It helps if you like dogs; they are a definite presence at this B&B. There was a kitchen renovation underway when I visited (had been ongoing for a number of months) - makes things a little... More

Thank you for giving us the chance to serve you in January. Since three months have passed since you were here, we are excited to tell you that our extensive renovation is complete and we are thrilled with the results.

We had a wonderful experience. We never stayed at a bed and breakfast and had no idea what to expect. It was fantastic. The food was great and owners were a delight. Oh and yes there is a hot tub! It was clean cozy for a bed and breakfast cool antiques inside and a really cute separate guest house.

Don and Suzy are fabulous hosts! I stayed in the cottage in the back. Easy parking at my door, safe, quiet, perfect. The bed was super comfy and the creme brûlée french toast for breakfast was divine. If you are looking for a B and B in the area, this is definitely the place to go! My only comment is... More

I come down to San Diego every few months for business and personal reasons and used to just drive down, which made for a really long day in the car (sometimes 14 hours if traffic is really bad). Not wanting to do that and having a couple of extra days off due to the holiday, I thought I'd make a... More

What a fabulous guest! To have you visit was a pleasure, but to have the opportunity to sit and visit and share so much time, information and humor was an absolute honor for us and sheer joy, that you came as a stranger, but left as a friend.

Let me start off by stating that I don't write reviews often. Actually, I should moreso because I certainly am the beneficiary of them when choosing a place to stay. I should give back and probably will for the future. However, the primary reason I am writing this review is because this last place has served as the jackpot of... More

We have visited family in Escondido for 30 years and always had to stay in another town or at a "not so nice" place in Escondido. When I read about this place on Trip Advisor in the spring, I could not believe such a nice place existed in Escondido. I called right away and spoke to Suzie. After being on... More

Comfortable accommodations, beautiful atmosphere, generous hosts. Suzy & Don elevated the B&B experience to a new height - they make you feel like one of the family. Transportation to and from Stone Brewery, "treats" as we arrived back in the evening, hot-tub by the light of the full moon, the best breakfast ever. Can't wait to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Regina del Palazzo B&B was formerly known as Old Escondido Bed and Breakfast. This is a beautiful historical home built in 1888, fully refurbished keeping it's historical value in a lovely setting at the top of one of Old Escondido's hills overlooking the valley. We have filled it with gorgeous antique furniture, comfy queen sized beds, with a full sized library and DVD selection.Our 6 person spa went in for your relaxation. We love serving full sized breakfasts that will tempt your palate and possibly your waistline. We sit high on a hill in a quiet neighborhood filled with historic homes and nature walks around the corner. Sleep til noon or have your breakfast on your private porch, or sit on our wicker lounge on the side porch with the ceiling fan keeping you comfortable on a hot California morning.Escondido is 40 minutes from San Diego, 7 miles from the San Diego Safari Park , just down the 15 freeway from the Temecula wineries and smack dab in the middle of some of the most beautiful golf courses in Southern California. We are close to the Carlsbad beach, Deer Park Monastery, 18 breweries, and many other sites to see.We have added solar panels to the roof and installed air conditioning throughout the house and took out the window units. Our new double ovens are in and so is our new range and we have just done a complete remodel of our stunning kitchen....let the Big Breakfasts Begin!!! Even more than what they were.Our big beautiful spa is in, so pop a bottle of champagne, select a slice of Brioche and cheese and fruit and just relax. ... more   less
