A little difficult to find, since it's surrounded by a residential area. . .but once you arrive at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, it is beautiful. Very well maintained grounds, surrounded by a golf course.
Check in was extremely effficient. Staff helpful. . .no issues. The hotel is expansive, but
found our room with no issues. The rooms was beautifully appointed, large, with a balcony overlooking a courtyard with waterfountains and lush greenery.
Dinner through the conference was at the Veranda restaurant. Call for reservations if you want
to eat outside. Have the quesidilla, it was excellent and also, their scallops were yummy.
Beautiful sunsets. As stated by other contributors, the only downside of staying at the RBI attending a conference, is that you don't have more downtime to enjoy the facilities.

There are 2 pools that I found, with hottubs. Once is for Adults only and one for Families
There is also a full service spa on the grounds which I did not have time to enjoy.
Altogether, a wonderful stay at the RBI. . .try it some time.

About a 1/2 hour from San Diego airport. . .1 hour from Julien, and 1/2 hour about to beaches.
Enjoy it all!!

Room Tip: We were in an older building - The Fountains - and it did not have an elevator. . .Helpful staff br...

Stayed here for a conference. The golf course is really only an expensive public course that is poorly maintained. Actually, most public courses are more interesting and maintained better than this one. The food in the only restaurant on site is like the golf course - tired and poorly maintained. No fewer than 5 people at the conference got food poisoning from a variety of foods, indicating the kitchen has a serious problem. The room is nice but the hotel sprawls all over the place so you have to build in 10 minutes to get anywhere.

I just have to say that this hotel is wonderful. The decor, grounds, restaurants, rooms, and staff were all amazing. I was there for three nights for a conference and everything was fantastic. We ate dinner on the patio at the Veranda Restaurant and the atmosphere, food, and staff were great. The only downside it is 35 minutes from downtown. Regardless, I will be back. Great place for couples or girlfriend getaways.

I stayed at Rancho Bernardo Inn while in Southern California for business and it was amazing. My room overlooked the golf course, was extremely spacious and the bed....I wanted to take it home with me it was so comfy ! The only wish I had was that I had more down time to really enjoy the facilities. I can't wait to go back !

Stayed here for a friend's wedding this weekend. The Aragon lawn is such a beautiful venue for a wedding, the reception was indoors. The rest of the resort is beautiful as well - wish I had more time to walk around and enjoy the outdoors, even though I don't golf.

The reception was friendly and efficient, no complaints.

We stayed in a garden view room. Although the view was fine, although at night could hear people talking as they walked by. The room was spacious and clean, I loved the exposed beams architectural accent. The balcony was such a nice place to chill with friends.

As other reviews mention overnight parking is $16. We went with the INNclusive plan, which was $19 for parking, internet and complimentary drinks. We had our drinks at the bar (even though wedding was open bar) - it was a nice night cap. There's free internet in the bar also.

If I'm ever back in SD, would love to spend longer here and enjoy the spa. It is a bit far from San Diego proper, closer to La Jolla.

I stayed at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a conference, it was so relaxing and beautiful. It had a homey feel with beautiful landscaping that created lots of secluded "feeling" areas. The food was really good too! Most conferences provide lots of fattening choices that I end up succumbing too. But every meal and snack included healthy and delicious choices! Well done.
