Rancho Bernardo Inn is located outside the high density San Diego city environment; actually located at the end of a residential street. Immediate impression driving onto the site was positive. Valet service was friendly and quite prompt when we called for our car.
The theme is that of a grand resort with subdued decor consistent with a high class resort. Reception desk was quite efficient. Room was more than adequate in size; could have used a bit more overall inside lighting. Bathroom was clean but somewhat outdated (it still worked fine, but would be better if it were modernized). This place must be built well as I never heard one sound from adjacent rooms.
The downstairs bar was old style "resort type" and generally had a friendly crowd.
Dining on the open veranda was very good. Service was consistently prompt and we never had to scan for a waiter to take care of us. Food ranged from decent burgers to good appetizers all the way up to well executed main courses. They had a reasonable selection of wines.
All the outside facilities were in top notch condition ( pools, spa, golf course) with very well manicured grounds. I walked the grounds for hours and never tired of the great views. You can enjoy this Resort whether or not you are a golfer.
