Rancho Bernardo inn is located in north San Diego county in a quiet residential neighborhood on a golf course. It's an older 3 story hotel but decorated very nice. The rooms are large and spacious. The lobby and restaurants are very rustic and beautiful. I want to thank the front desk staff, Tai and Trevor for going out of their... More

Stay here for sure if you're in San Diego county and need to be inland from the ocean - you won't be disappointed! I stay at least once every couple months and the service has been of the highest quality and consistency of just about any hotel I've stayed at across the country - and I travel a lot.

I was there a few weeks ago for a conference. This was my first time staying at the resort. At first glance this resort looks amazing and to be honest the food is AMAZING and all staff was very helpful and resourceful when needed. I gave them 3 stars because this resort has won multiple awards and have been recommended... More

I was expecting a lot more from a hotel that won so many awards... The property is very nice and the service and food excellent but overall i would say that for 400$/night i had stayed at better places in san diego. The housekeeping was terrible..we were always asking for more basic stuff like toilet paper or faceclothes. There were... More

I traveled to the Rancho Bernardo Inn 2 weeks ago on a Saturday night with my two daughters, 5 and 1. I sent a comment on the website 2 weeks ago to the hotel and I have yet to receive any word from them. We had spent the hot day at the San Diego Safari Park which is very close... More

There is nothing better than a massage with the sea breeze in Hawaii; however, I can't always get to the Islands, so RBI is the next best place! The Fabulous spa experience, along with the beautiful grounds and fabulous staff renews my spirit. I love the old time feeling of old California here. I've stayed in all the areas, I... More

I hosted a surprise coctail hour for my husbands birthday accompanied by a pre spa day and nights stay. The staff was amazing. They set up the most beautiful buffet for my guests and provided friendly, prompt service. Now the spa treatments were blissful. They treatments were 5 star, and the spa pool and food were delightful. The spa pool... More

Although I have stayed here many times and the staff are very professional, management I have found tend to over promise and under deliver. It's more about the bottom line . Prepare to be underwhelmed!

My impression of Rancho Bernardo Inn as positive even before arriving. Staff was most attentive, welcoming, and helpful from reservation to check out. Grounds on this traditional mission style resort were lovely, and while the Greens Building has a bit of a drab grey exterior, my rooms was wonderful! Large, clean, comfortable, beautiful, and the sliding door opening to the... More
