The Lazy H is a wonderful place to recharge from city life. The rooms are basic, but very clean and quiet. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The grounds are very charming. But the restaurant is the real gem. They serve fairly standard restaurant fair, but exceptionally well prepared. Their prime rib is the best I've ever had. Definitely... More

This was a last minute weekend trip and we were not disappointed. The Lazy H is very quaint clean and quiet. We stayed here because we planned on wine tasting and visiting the local casinos and it was perfect. Keep in mind this is an older motel so of course it has an vintage feel and the reason I gave...

We were looking for a place to get out of the city and see the stars (and hopefully some of the meteor shower). The rooms aren't fancy but they are comfortable. Each room has it's own color scheme and uniqueness. It does have an old '70s feel to it, but this isn't a bad thing. We found it quite charming.... More

Whether you come to get away, to hike the mountains, or to visit the world famous Mt. Palomar Hale Observatory you will find the Lazy H a place to relax between activities. Comfortable rooms, a pool, and a really nice little restaurant and bar which means when you get back after a day out you can settle in for the... More

Wonderful ribs, broasted chicken and a varied menu to choose from. Wonderful fresh fish ! I enjoy the nostalgia of the dining room with it's bottle collection. Very capable staff. ..especially Henry and David, but all are great.The bar has a tree growing through the roof and lovely humming bird feeders near the windows. A good lace to meet the... More

Just got home from a moms get away weekend at the Lazy H. We chose this location because of it's easy to get to yet secluded location as well as the restaurant on site. The rooms are quaint, spacious and comfortable. Our group booked all but one of the 9 rooms and we truly had the place to ourselves except... More

Pauma Valley is a relatively isolated area. Gracefully lined with orange groves, grapefruits and avocados. The Lazy H is a small lodge, restaurant and bar with a pool and event accommodation. The rooms are very basic - shower, sink, bed, tv. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. My only complain was the blinds were broken in my room so I couldn't... More

As I opened the door to the room, it was like walking into a vintage room stuck in time albeit the air conditioner was on full blast and somewhat loud. The bed was comfortable and the water pressure was great! The room was somewhat a little old, but it was exactly what I was expecting. The flat screen TV was... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Lazy H Ranch twice, last July and again this July. The price is significantly cheaper than anything else in the area, and for the most part this little hidden gem is a really nice place. We stay there because his family lives nearby, but the Lazy H is very close to the... More
