We stayed for four nights and had a great stay. Loved everything! I wanted to take the bed home, it was by far the best night sleep I have had in a long time. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. And it seems they are going through some upgrades to the hotel also...I definatley recommend this hotel to anyone going to San Diego. It is secluded and very quiet...away from the busy downtown SD area, but just a short 25-30 minute drive if you want to go downtown

  • Liked — The staff was very accomodating

The accomodations at the Rancho Bernardo Inn were top notch from the moment my fiance' and I were greated by the valet to our fabulous nightly meals (3 Restaraunts to choose from). The rooms and grounds were so comfortable and inviting, I found myself thinking that I could live here happily for a long time!! The staff was consistent in greeting us with kindness and looking out for our best interests. The golf course was a true test, and the yet to be completed conference center looks to be very impressive.
The highlight of our stay was the 5-star dining experience at El Bizcocho restaurant. The wine list was extensive to say the least and the service left nothing to be desired. We celebrated my birthday and made reservations 2 weeks ahead of time. The staff was aware of the celebration before we arrived and they made the night very special for my fiance' and I.
By the time we checked out, I felt as though we had made new friends and would be welcomed back again and again.

The Rancho Beranrdo Inn is simply the perfect getaway while in San Diego. It is reminiscent of old European charm. The decor is exquisite and the service is impeccable. There are two restaurants, the Veranda and El Bizcocho, which is an incredible dining experience. The wine selection is by far the most extensive that my wife and I have ever seen and the attention to detail by the staff is unmatched. The golf course is both picturesque and very challenging, especially the 18th hole. You will not be disappointed. We have been staying at the Inn for over 10 years when in town.

We have stayed at the Rancho Bernardo Inn several times over the years and are always impressed. We travel a great deal, but there's no place like the Inn! Fabulous property, stunning rooms, and service that's second to none. Highly recommended for both the business traveler and for vacation. Don't forget to check out the spa!

  • Liked — Property is beautiful! Very peaceful.
  • Disliked — The fact that we had to leave!

I am an event planner and several of my clients have hosted their weddings and events at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. I love when brides and grooms pick RBI as their venue. RBI catering and staff are very easy to work with and their events are "spot on" compared to other venues I've held events at. Their grounds also offer several perfect backdrops for ceremonies, and wedding photographers love the picturesque qualities RBI has too. RBI also offers a comfortable stay for guests with great restaurants, a spa, golf, and pools. Its warm, hacienda/early California feel is very inviting and relaxing for any special event or getaway.

This property is quite a gem located in the north county area of San Diego. The property is expansive (you can get lost!) and is very beautiful. it is a really great place for a quiet romantic getaway. The lobby has a very old world feel with lots of antiques and fireplaces. I stayed in one of their large suites which was fabulous. There is plenty of room for a whole family in one of those. The food at the restaurants was absolutely delicious! I didn't go in the pool but it looked nice enough.

It was an easy drive to get to the Wild Animal Park, but a little far from the beach.
