I have stayed here before but this time got to stay on the opposite end of property The Magnolia cottages, room 413, all single even rooms with high vaulted ceiling. Room had the best soaking tub in it, OMG loved it! Both tub and spa shower had faucets that could give you boiling hot water that never runs out. Appreciated... More

Nice historic place. Capable staff, room nice and clean. Breakfast was good and they were kind enough to make us take away sandwiches for our plane ride. While it was too cold to swim the pool area seemed nice.Overall stay was very good

This is a lovely place and the grounds are beautiful and relaxing. Lots of outdoor places to sit and very thoughtful amenities in the room (umbrella, fluffy robe). The staff is very accommodating. Go visit.

I've stayed here several times for business and it is always a wonderful experience. Beautiful rooms with fireplaces already laid and ready to be lit (I'm always here in January so I love that), great amenities, so luxurious and comfortable. Staff is unfailingly friendly, professional and helpful.

We love coming to the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The rooms are charming and the overall ambiance is both casual and refined. The restaurant is excellent too. We stayed in the rose cottages and our room was lovely. Would recommend getting a room with a fireplace.

Dear Rmiller, I am so glad to read you found the Inn at its best. We have been here 93 years (although not personally) and work out to keep our old world charm. The majority of our rooms have wood burning fireplaces. We hope to see you back soon. Very best, Jerome More

Been visiting "The Inn" for over 36 years. Enjoy the fact I can pull my vehicle up to the room for easy axis. The gardens are a treat. "The Inn" is a hidden gem in a busy world. We celebrated a birthday and the staff where great!

Dear Rick, Thank you for your visit and your review. The Inn was build in 1923 and none of our 80 rooms are completely identical. We have grouped them in a number of categories but showing exact pictures on the website is almost impossible. My apologies for the noise of footsteps.

This hotel is our go to for a relaxing weekend get-away. We especially enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, cozy fireplace and the beautiful décor in our room - The town is awesome, we loved the low-key but high-end car show that gathered on Saturday morning and the arts and crafts fair in the park. The Morada Restaurant is amazing -... More

Looking for traditional service, surroundings and quiet ambience? Serenity and beauty abound at The Inn and it is much appreciated by this writer. It is a nostalgic journey for me when I return to The Ranch and I am never disappointed. Tradition is precious in our ever-changing world.

We love this place having visited several times. Location, aesthetics, rooms, restaurant. Every ingredient to be a five star hotel. We don't want it to be five star hotel because we believe that could make it too stuffy. But focusing on the restaurant and just the general sense, it needs management in both areas. We ate several meals in the... More
