We came here for a wedding and spent 5 relaxing days here. The grounds are lovely and we had upgraded to a room overlooking the golf course. The room could use a bit of updating but was still great. Breakfast outdoors on their outdoor veranda was a treat and always delicious. There are several pool areas, and they never felt... More

We came here for my husband's business trip coordinated by Meister Media and it was the perfect venue for both one on one meetings as well as larger conference areas to Connect with other businesses and suppliers. First, let me describe the grounds; it's sprawling layout is beautifully landscaped and meticulously manicured with lots of private areas to just sit... More

My best girfriend and I spent the day at the SPA. We live in San Diego and were looking for a day spa to relax, get a massage/facial, lunch and hang out. The spa at the RB Inn did the trick. They have a beautiful spa pool right next to the golf course with sun, shade and cabanas. We went... More

Enjoyed a lovely weekend. Attended our friends wedding. The grounds are lovely. The weather was perfect for the outdoor ceremony. The wedding used an outside (for dietary reason) caterer. The staff was soo accommodating.

Nestled in the hills of San Diego near Poway, Rancho Bernardo Inn is that special classic gem that has great service, spectacular grounds with lots of gathering places around fountains and fireplaces, indoor seating areas nestles next to woor-burning fireplaces, and restaurants with great food and well-trained wait staff. It has all the amenities of the new hotels, but this... More

This hidden gem is all about relaxing. It has all the amenities for a training session, seminar, golf outing and more. Located at the end of a residential street it also is quiet and removed from the traffic and hub-bub of Rancho Bernardo. The hotel lobby is welcoming with a fireplace and warm décor. There is even a jig-saw puzzle... More

Car was broken in to 20 yards from main entrance and all my luggage stolen and car vandalized. Security took a report and told me to file a police report.... and that was it. Just make sure you bring extra protection if you want to risk walking around in the dark here.

Visited for a Customer Golf outing/charity event which I have been involved in for 4 years. This was the best location they have ever had it in. Beautiful hotel and grounds and very well maintained golf course..

This a gem of a resort tucked away in Rancho Bernardo. It has the appearance of a classic, elegant, vintage resort with southern California comfort. They pay attention to detail making sure that travelers are comfortable - the ritual lighting of the fireplaces in the evening, the jogging trail map marked with several different mileage routes, the concierge personally opening...

We usually go to La Costa for spa days - they have a beautiful spa, you can access all the amenities for about $30/day. My friends and I (7 of us) decided to try Rancho Bernado - they apparently renovated recently and we'd heard some good reviews. Some of us got massages/packages, others got day passes for $35/day. The groups... More
