My daughter and I stayed in room 205, what a beautiful room with a fireplace and the bathroom had a huge vanity and gorgeous shower. Nice private patio in the back, beautiful grounds out front. We had a fantastic dinner at the restaurant there and spent the next day enjoying the on site spa. Everything was top notch.

My boyfriend and I got a villa here for Easter weekend and lounged around at the pool, took in dinner at the restaurant at night, and walked around the lovely town of Rancho Santa Fe by morning and night. What an amazing place. It was quiet (especially if you compare to La Jolla or San Diego) and a beautiful countryside... More

We spent one night here for a wedding recently. The property is lovely. Our room was small but adequate and nicely furnished. Had wonderful chocolate croissant and yogurt and granola for breakfast. My major complaint was the smell of cigar smoke. The lounge sells cigars which can be used outside on the patio. The smell permeated the entry area, lounge... More

Hi Debbie, Thank you for recent stay. I am glad you enjoyed your room and the breakfast. My apologies for the cigar smoke smell. Our patio next to the whiskey bar is open to cigar smokers but staff has been instructed to keep doors closed when people are actually smoking there.(which doesn't happen a lot BTW). We certainly do not... More

The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is delightful. We have been guests at The Inn for over 30 years and always come home refreshed and pleased. Quiet, relaxing and understated elegance! Beautiful salt water pool and spa which is brand new and lovely.

A stay at the Inn, gives guests the rare opportunity to experience life in one of the richest communities in the Americas. Unless you're lucky enough to have friends or family in Rancho Santa Fe; to stay- you'll have to pay a princely sum. I quite appreciated the lavishly landscaped grounds & architectually historic buildings- that are scattered throughout. The... More

We just celebrated our first anniversary here. We were visiting from Texas and wanted to stay somewhere outside of the city. This place ended up great for us. The rooms were well put together and comfortable. The only comment or tip I have is: Some rooms have an in-room fireplace. We booked one of these. It didn't really cross my... More

We were in San Diego for a wedding of a dear friend's son. Our friend had recommended the Inn, and our experience was with 100% joy and satisfaction. Excellent service all the way around!
