This was my first visit to Rancho Bernardo Inn and I was not disappointed. The grounds were beautiful, the staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Even though it was rainy and cold during our visit, my kids were able to swim in the heated pool and roast marshmallows over the fire pit at the... More

Room 701 on the Golf Course. You can walk out to the course. Right on the 10th Tee and overlooking the 18th green. Wonderful golf course with multiple tees for every skill level. Get the golf package worth the money. Has a Starbucks right off the Lobby and great Sports bar downstairs

Our first stay at the Inn. My wife had selected it as a surprise birthday getaway. The decor is rustic with a couple of real wood fireplaces located in the lobby are. We were escorted to our room by one of the bellman who pointed out the pool area and the beautiful manicured grounds. Our room was spacious and clean... More

This is a great resort in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the San Diego area. Tucked amongst the rolling hills of the area, the resort facilities are expansive. Since the resort has a longer history to it, it looks like a typical Californian resort hotel. Lots of mature trees everywhere in the public areas. The rooms, however,... More

I was there for a conference, other than the overly load HVAC, the worn out bed and the shower that did not put out consistent hot water things were great. Staff is helpful and pleasant . The staff is responsive to the client and they have a nice concierge text messaging system.

Wow! Ranch Bernardo inn sure can help make a wedding look amazing. The wedding I attended was held on the first hole by a beautiful tree and the reception was in one of their many venue areas. It was beautiful the service on a whole was great minus one very angry rude guy.

We had a wonderful visit at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Concierge Leslie set us up with the wine tasting experience: wonderful driver, fun day of tastings around Escondido. It's a new wine region - if you go make sure to visit Altipiano Vineyard. The Inn and Spa were lovely as always!

Rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had a nice size balcony with a view of fountains. The sounds of the fountains were very soothing. Amazing spa services. It is a great spot if you want to be active or just relax. It has everything you need for a great getaway.

We went on a Sunday night. Staff was so friendly and kind. Booked on the phone and once I mentioned it being our anniversary, the rep gave us free parking and breakfast! At the front desk, we were offered a free room upgrade and free drink vouchers at the concierge. We loved how this place wasn't trying to "nickel and... More

I originally reserved (and paid for) a suite to celebrate our 22nd anniversary, but a few days before our stay, I was called to say that the room I reserved was not available and instead of an upgrade, my reservation was downgraded to a "premium king", and the spa package that I had was changed and now it cost me...
