“A find!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

A search for a reasonably priced spa resort around the Del Mar / La Jolla area uncovered this Golf Resort. We were going from Monday afternoon through Friday morning so anticipated that it wouldn't be over-run. It was perfectly located so we took the chance. On day two my girlfriend said 'you did good!' which proved to be the case. As we spent much of our time out and about, seeing the sights, I must admit that our hotel experiences were narrow. We moved from our well appointed room to the outdoor patio area for breakfast most mornings. That was about it. As most resorts could do with a facelift I won't even mention that aspect. Suffice to say that everything was clean.The waiting staff were very good so all in all it was a great find. The location and the price were first class and I'd have no hesitation in going back.

I was a little worried when I read the reviews of this hotel after bidding on priceline but my friend and I loved it. It is out of the way but not far from anything and very clean. The hotel hallways and the desk and dressers could use and update but the rooms were clean and big. We also had a nice balcony. It was very quiet, which we realized was because a wedding party was also staying, we did hear them when they came in but only in the hallways.

The coffee maker was interesting as we couldn't find the directions so we found a Youtube video, and sure enough we then found the directions shortly after which were on a card near the machine.

I would definitely stay here again as this was a pleasant, peaceful place to stay just a few miles from Del Mar. There was a resort fee, but it was nice to have parking that didn't cost 35 dollars a night!

Pros:
- Good location; hidden location, a little far away from the main hwy 5. Has a great golf course.

Cons:
- Rooms look a little dated. They have tried hard to change the look and feel, but I still think that they may look a little dated. AC was slightly noisy and slow to respond.
- Resort fees. $15. Not good if you just need an overnight stay. Maybe for other things, it may be better - e.g. Golf, etc.
- Rollaway bed fee of $10.

Room Tip: If you get a second floor room, there are no elevators.

I enjoyed the quiet and the room had a non-hotel "feel" to it which was a real treat. The pool was lovely, I took advantage of a nice Yoga class as well. The employees are wonderful, except for one unfriendly, clueless front desk person. When I asked about the cause of the early morning smoke alarm, she just said: "caused by steamy shower, happens all the time". Since it was a bit early in the morning & a bit unnerving, she could have said: "sorry if you were inconvenienced"! Not a mean woman, just clueless. The club house is really nice, the grounds are gorgeous and we booked the room last minute so we got a great rate directly through the hotel. The room was comfy & clean & quiet, works for me!

Room Tip: We were on an upper floor, left the slider open & didn't have any A/C noise.

Regarding your interaction with the front desk I do apologize. I will definitely pass this nore on to our Front Desk Supervisor Pat Swinehart so that she can try and address the communication issue.

The good was great and the staff was very friendly. They were busy and all guests seemed to be having a good time. The hotel is convenient to shopping and the beach, close to the highway, which makes it worth the stay.

Room Tip: Ask to face the golf course.

"Happy Guest!" Thank you for your feedback! We truly appreciate your taking the time to tell us about your stay.

Guest service is our top priority. The Team at Morgan Run realizes that without great Guest experience our business will fail.

The location of the property continues to stay at the top of the list in regards to why Guests return to Morgan Run. It truly is minutes from the beach, the highway, and city but all in the peace and quiet of Rancho Santa Fe.

We will look forward to your next visit!

Morgan Run continues to impress me and my family. Friendly staff, great pricing, great golf and swimming with an excellent fitness center.

Location of course is superb for enjoying North County.

Thanks again for another great weekend.

Room Tip: Overlooking the golf course is always enjoyaable.

I tried to write a detailed review earlier but it did not save, so I will keep it short. Great area, bad hotel. Booked through priceline then got hit with a $15 resort fee making it the same cost of nicer hotels in the area. Stay away. Not worth it.
