My wife and I stayed last week for three days as part of our 33rd wedding anniversary. Upon check in we were directed to room 114, and oversized but very unexceptional room. There was far to little furniture for the room, it was poorly designed, had a very small bathroom, and a rickety deck overlooking a dumpster. We were very... More

This gem of a resort preserves the classic beauty of "Ronald Reagan era" California, surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills, orchards and horse trails. The room was perfectly clean and beautiful with a VERY comfortable bed. It has a European provincial ambiance with very attentive staff that seem invisible until you actually need something or have a question and they are... More

I'm from San Diego and have known about this little jewel of a resort for some time. With the new ownership, renovation and fabulous chef, it's the perfect get away from it all place to stay! I have stayed at the other 5 star resort in area and prefer this by far.

We were married at the Rancho Santa Fe Inn in 1993. It was lovely then and even nicer today. It's beautiful, quiet, and just a lovely place to relax. We had a late-night outdoor dinner at the restaurant, which was quite nice, and we enjoyed the grounds. There isn't much to do in Rancho Santa Fe itself, but the Inn... More

My wife a friend, and I stayed there last year. The staff was excellent and I gave a raving review. We stayed there again this year for the opening of Del Mar Race season.

Dear Michael, What an honor to read that what you thought could not be improved on actually DID. We are working very hard to make the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe the place of choice in the area and that it really has nothing to do with Kool Aid but with good old fashioned genuine service and a great location...

Just got back from a weekend stay at the Inn. My boyfriend and I thought our room was very pretty - it was clean, bright, fairly spacious, and had a private patio with a little bit of a view into the hills. The pool area is a little small but, like the rest of the hotel, really well maintained and... More

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the Inn this past weekend. This was a family getaway to celebrate my Husband's birthday and the team at the Inn really made this special occasion quite special. The hotel itself is very nice. The grounds are small, but the gardens and greenery are very well maintained and pretty. The lobby and sitting... More

This is the best hotel, period! It's not for the person who wants a loud and crazy vacation. It is a classy place with excellent service. We love the classic pool, beautiful rooms, and terrific food. My wife and I come every year and will return again. The Rancho Santa Fe Inn does it right!

I stayed at this hotel due to my condo being fumigated for termites. They allow large dogs. We had a great stay, grounds are beautiful and staff is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Dear Ria, Thank you for your kind words about your recent stay at the Inn. I am glad you and your dog enjoyed the Inn. We welcome dogs big and small and haven't encountered a misbehaved one yet. Please visit us back again for rest and relaxation, even when your house does not need a tent. Best regards, Jerome More
