This is a large resort offering many different activities. We chose to go to the spa for the day. We made our appointments for facials. The reception staff was courteous and informative. We received a confirmation e-mail the night before to remind us of our treatment times. Upon arrival the spa is in an area totally surrounded by beautiful gardens.... More

My husband & were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. He booked through an outside site, price per room was very expensive. This was a very nice and classy hotel. Lots of little spots to hide away. The pools were nice & loved the gardens. I instantly got good vibes from it. When he booked we saw photos of large tub,... More

We stayed here one night during the long President’s Day weekend. The check-in was painless and quick. The normal check-in time is 4:00 p.m.; I called at 2:30 to request an early check-in and got checked in around 3 pm. The complaint I have is that that hotel charged us for internet usage and self-parking, which I thought it was... More

Having been in the Hospitality industry you tend to notice all the details that would make a successful "Magic Time", for guests to keep them coming. Where do I begin, front desk hospitality is non exciting from the moment we got there, evening starts with a very slow restaurant service when it's half empty. Get to the room and it's... More

For a resort located in beautiful Rancho Bernardo, I expected first class service, and received mediocre service. Some of the staff were friendly, but I never felt genuinely welcomed by some of the staff. The rooms were clean , but looked tired compared to other resorts I've stayed at. What we were promised during the reservation process was not completely... More

Make sure to stay in the Greens Bldg (view of the golf course - 10th hole), it was so pretty and parking was right out front so we didn't even need the bellman to help us with our bags. Definitely need to book a spa pkg, the saline pool is amazing and there are different nooks and areas to escape... More

I have spent numerous spa days at the Rancho Bernardo Inn with spa treatments planned around lunch by the pool. The spa services are excellent, especially Gina's pedicures and manicures. It is a lovely and peaceful property with beautiful amenities and a very friendly staff. It is a great getaway for local San Diego folks as well as out of... More

This had been our 4th visit and we have enjoyed the site, responsiveness and location before. First some of the early negatives: We arrived early ( 1:30 ish) and were told the room was still being prepared- fair enough. I gave my cell number and we took off to the winery to taste and have some lunch since we had... More

As Long term guests at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, our most recent trip utilized a number of extra services more specifically related to both a recent engagement of a daughter and a special event for a 98 year parent (and father in law). The hotel staff went "well beyond" and made a huge difference. The Concierge, Reservations Office, Veranda Restaurant... More

We were at the Rancho Bernardo Inn For a softball tournament that was being held in Escondido. We were hooked up with the hotel by Lee Ginsburg from Michaels Travel in Westlake, CA. We had many different families there with kids of all different ages from 3-16pful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
