Driving from San Diego, the only complaint I have about getting there was it was not all that well marked on the highway so we weren't sure if we were in the right place when we drove up to... More

I stopped in out of the blue out of curiosity, while driving through Tecate. The room was clean, with soft big pillows on the bed. I wasn't sure about the big stain on the floor,... More

It doesn't matter how aesthetically extravagant, elegant or modest a hotel can be, personally I think it always comes down to the hospitality and service offered by the personnel. Game strong for Rancho Tecate Resort, the minute we stepped into the lobby at 11 pm on a Thursday, we were welcomed by two team members with warm smiles despite the... More

we enjoyed our stay at the ranch, the Sunday buffet was good, the only dissapointment was the information desk told us the price for my 11 years old was half price, but we were charged full price. Will consider going back.

Rancho Tecate is one of the most expensive places to stay in Tecate, but you don't get what you pay for here. The resort is older and badly in need of an upgrade, most of the furnishings are old and dated. My biggest complaint though is about the room and bed itself. We had booked a king bed, but what...
