Surprised by this somewhat out of the way inn. The rooms are spacious. Windows that open to let in soft, Southern California breezes. There's a great bar and restaurant. Meetings spaces for small groups make it a good place for a business retreat. Good exercise room and saltwater pool. Would definitely go back for personal or business retreat.

Had a very nice, kind of late meal on Friday night- out on the heated patio. Great food and service. However, the bad karaoke type keyboard player/singer could have ruined the evening if we had not had a group of 6 of us with a good head start on cocktails at Del Mar. So we had a good time laughing... More

Beautiful grounds, caring staff and good prices! It is situated beautifully close to the quaint but elegant town, so choosing to go to a restaurant in walking distance is perfect. The weather is almost always perfect, so get a bungalow with a patio, to enjoy a relaxing day!

I spent four incredible nights here with family for a wedding in the fall. From the moment we arrived the staff was kind, welcoming and made us feel very special. We stayed for four nights, 2 nights in the Garden Cottage and 2 nights in the 2 bedroom suite. I highly recommend either of those rooms. Both had fireplaces, gorgeous... More

Pulling up in our taxi we were greeted by a friendly valet. Only staying for two nights, (for a wedding) we had little luggage and did not require a bellman's assistance. That being said we had no knowledge that we would be walking down a path, up a few steps and then down another path to our room. It would... More

Dear Heidi, Thank you for your recent visit and I am sorry to read you did not enjoy your room. Unfortunately in a rural setting like ours we fight an ongoing battle against spiders, leaves and other sources of debris. We clean outside surfaces on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this past weekend we went through a unusual heatwave as normally... More

We booked 2 nights at this inn for a friend's wedding -- let me first just say the wedding was wonderful and this review is unrelated to the high quality of the wedding. From the pictures on various travel websites we were excited to book a relaxing luxurious weekend in San Diego. For $300 a night, you should get a... More

Dear Amanda, Thank you for your review and I am sorry this particular room did not live up to your expectations. The Inn was build over a time span of 90+ years and none of our rooms look exactly identical and as you can imagine it is impossible to show each room on the website. The building you stayed in...

I discovered this Inn at the recommendation of business associate. It's old school, lots of flowers and undulating paths, ultra low-key, very quiet with excellent on site restaurant. No excitement, but real deal old California landscape and atmosphere.

Dear Stephen, Magical is a word I love to read when someone describes us. The number of people that got married here over the past 90+ years to too many and some still come back to celebrate their wedding anniversary year after year. We hope you return soon again. Very best, Jerome More

In all fairness, i didn't actually end up staying a single night at the Inn...but my experience for the few hours i toured this establishment compells me to write this review. I had booked 3 nights at the inn (prepaid through hotels.com) and was very excited for my mini holiday...a family bonding trip. Upon arrival (after waiting a good half... More

If you plan to drive out of town for a relaxing weekend. This place is perfect. We drove from LA stayed for one night. Pool was so good, facilities were amazing. They provided everything for us even for our 9 month son. Though don't expect anything in the area, the town area has nothing to do. So you should spend... More

Dear Nader-Padidar, We wished you could have stayed for a lot more nights. Maybe a future visit you can stay a bit longer. It's an easy drive from LA so no reason not to come back more often. If you need another relaxing weekend please let us know. Best regards Jerome More
