The "Inn" in it's name is a bit deceiving....it's more like a resort. Rooms are spread out all over the property, ours was on the ground floor over looking the golf course which was nice for our 2 boys to be able to throw baseballs after the golf course was closed. Pros: Property is gorgeous, peaceful, tranquil. So many spots... More

Slow down and enjoy life,you can start right here. Living the good life on a working person's salary. RBI is the whole package, we never left the property. The golf course was in amazing shape for the August! So peaceful, so quiet, so beautiful, hidden amoung the suburbs it is a great getaway.

We are residents of San Diego and are members of the Rancho Bernardo Inn Resort Club. We love this place! Great location, the grounds are idyllic, the service is superb, and the food and accommodations are top notch. Just walking on the grounds is peaceful. The spa is great, the pools are uncrowded and well serviced. We've been to many... More

We stayed at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for their Kids Rule package and it did not disappoint! The staff was extremely friendly and the property was beautiful. We stayed the whole weekend, great F&B!! I would recommend to any family that wants a lot of options for all family members.

I am a Marriot Platinum Member because I travel so much for work. Because of this, I have stayed at multiple hotels for years all over California and Nevada. I have NEVER had a staff be more curtious, accomadating, and personable. Every time I stay it feels like a "true home away from home."Dhel-Ketan, Janice and Theresa all make this... More

It is true that this hotel is a little 'ways away' from San Diego - but for those looking for respite and not necessarily needing water views, this is a wonderful destination. It isn't too far from the major tourist attractions or La Jolla, FYI. The property is set up so well for groups or meetings, but it also feels... More

A beautifully landscaped place with a real upscale rancho feel and a wonderful service. Good food and a well kept pool. Rooms were great and spacious, especially for the European, even thought the place is a while our of SD and the airport. Recommended

While usually not a fan of food in California (I think it is too bland) the food at the Rancho Bernardo Inn was very good. Sadly did not have time to enjoy the pools or the golf course but they looked very inviting. The hotel is nestled (or shoehorned) in to a neighbourhood in Rancho Bernardo and does not look... More

We Stayed at the RB Inn for two evenings. Our room was large, with a sitting area, balcony overlooking the golf course and had a bathroom with separate shower and tub. The grounds were beautiful and both pools were enjoyable. We truly were able to relax and recharge the batteries here. The only negative was that our room was never... More

Dear Guest, thank you for the great comments on your guest room and the resort ambiance. I do apologize that housekeeping did not clean up your room. Since we have two bars on property and Avant being the newer of the two, we offer happy hour in AVANT and we offer our "Daily Delights" special food and beverage menu downstairs.... More

This is a hidden gem. You'd never guess how nice it is from a drive by. It's a bit rustic but in a very classy way. The service was top notch. The restaurants were all so good and the golf course was pristine.
