“Cool place, but a long way from San Diego”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2008

Well, my wife and I had a week in Cali, but one night with no where to stay. After checking for months in and around San Diego, everything reasonable and close was booked because that stupid comic-con convention. I kept seeing this place for under $100 and with good reviews. So, there we went on our journey to Ramona. It may be 30 - 45 minutes by helicopter but the mountains we went through took well over an hour (the desk clerk said there was a quicker way) using our GPS thing. We get to this cozy, country looking golf resort. Nice desk clerk, room older but spacious with a huge balcony. The roof was very noisy from the people above so request upper level. Did not play golf but it looked fairly nice. The pool was freakin olympic sized but I think it was the community pool as well. The $2.99 breakfast special was the bomb! Dinner the previous night was good as well. All in all, a nice little get away from the city but not too upscale for uptight people.

  • Liked — Quietness, pool, country cooking
  • Disliked — location compared to san diego or beaches

This is a different sort of place to me, being a mix between a Fraternal Lodge and a Resort. Not to make it sound bad - we really enjoyed it. On the up side, the room was fine (though it needed some upkeep) and it had a balcony overlooking the golf course; we really enjoyed that and even did some stargazing. The golf course view is wonderful, which includes rocky hills just beyond. The complementary breakfast in their restaurant was really great too. We very much enjoyed walking around the natural park nearby (the trail started right across from the hotel). The hotel has a shockingly huge pool. I guess this was built as a service pool for the planned community, and there are community classes taught there. The one downside of this hotel related to the pool, however. The pool is at one end of the property and the rooms at the other, with the restaurant, bar, and lobby inbetween. This might sound fine, but the door to the lobby says "NO SWIM WEAR." So, you are forced to walk outside, in the parking lot, from one end of the property to the other. Very odd design! We cannot comment on the golf course aspect since we did not play golf. All in all, we loved the area - which includes Julian - and thought this hotel was a good value.

  • Liked — The scenery and generally remote area
  • Disliked — The exposure to the world on the way to the pool

My husband I and stayed here over the MLK holiday. The rooms are very clean and spacious, with a great balcony area overlooking the golf course. Golf fees are reduced if you stay at the Inn. The food in the restaurant was good and excellent value, although service was spotty at times. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We would definitely return again. It's about an hour's drive to La Jolla or San Diego but the area around here is very peaceful.

  • Liked — Large rooms and cleanliness
  • Disliked — Poor service in restaurant

My wife and I and our 2 kids stayed at this resort for 2 days. What a great place. The rooms were recently remodeled and are quite large. Room also came with a refrigerator. Room had a nice view of the course and mountain side in the background. They also have a large swimming pool, tennis courts, and of course a golf course. This is a nice place to stay if you plan on visiting the the Wild Animal Park since its relatively close by. The town of Ramona is close by for shopping and meals or you can eat at the resort as it has a restaurant. Hotel staff was friendly and the hotel sent us a friendly note both before and after our stay. The room rate was less than $90 a night, a bargain. Highly recommend this resort if you are looking for a quite place to stay.
