Great place to stay. Very Clean hotel. Recommend this to anyone staying in the area. The fitness center is open 24 hours a day. Internet is quick. I didn't try the breakfast as I believe you have to pay. Free drinks in the lobby. I would stay here again if in the area.

The Hilton Garden Inn San Diego/Rancho Bernardo is about 45 minutes north of Downtown San Diego, so don't stay here if you want to visit San Diego. However, if you need to be in Rancho Bernardo, it is an excellent choice. It is located in a shopping/office complex and you cannot see the hotel from the road. There is a small sign next to the road, but you have to watch out for it. The hotel itself is nice, has great staff and excellent breakfast. There is underground parking and a nice little outdoor pool.

The exterior of this hotel does not have the look of a new Hilton Garden Inn. It appears to be an older spanish style hotel that has been completely refurbished. The interior has been completely redone and has the look and feel of the new style HGI. The first floor has the front desk and a restaurant and bar. The hotel is very big and it felt to me that it had been two hotels at one time. It was a very long walk from the lobby to our room - which I had trouble making. Check in was routine as expected. Our room was a very large junior suite with a view of a patio. There was a little freeway noise. The bathroom was large with adequate shelf space around the sink. The AC fan was noisy and adjusting the thermostat was a complete mystery. Instructions on adjusting the thermostat should be included in theirr information booklet. Room service and Breakfast were good; breakfast more expensive than other HGI. Overall it is a good hotel and might stay again but be aware of room selection.

Room Tip: Get a room close to the lobby

This Hotel is a great value, Clean, Quiet lots of food options close to Hotel. Nothing Fancy just good value for your money. It is not very convinient if you are visiting San Diego or its many attractions, but you should know that when booking and that is no fault of the hotel. enjoyed our stay.

Stayed at Rancho Bernardo Hilton Garden Inn for recent business trip. Hotel was adequate - staff was pleasant, rooms were clean and in good shape, lobby was fine for sitting and having a drink. But there was nothing outstanding or memorable about it. Room decor was undescriptive, location is in business-park environment, nothing that was a 'wow'.

Wonderful welcome from front desk staff on arrival and every time after that. Room was perfect after a long journey. Breakfast was included in my rate and it was more than satisfactory. Great staff here too. Only negative was the gym. Whilst I didn't mind that it was small, there was not a fresh aroama to be had! Overall, I would go back again due to the proximity of my place of work.

My husband and I vacationed in San Diego and stayed at Hilton Garden Inn. This was a very lovely hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were pleased with our room and breakfast was reasonably priced. You have the option to eat a chef prepared breakfast or continental style. If we are in San Diego area again, we would definitely stay at this hotel.
