Great family vacation

Rancho Bernardo is a beautiful hotel with a wonderful staff and an excellent restaurant. When we arrived, there was a wedding going on and the guests were somewhat loud and inebriated. We asked to move our room, but the hotel was full. As a courtesy, they treated us to a great dinner in their restaurant. My daughter loved the family pool, and we enjoyed traveling just a short distance to the San Diego Safari Park. We stayed for four nights and came home well rested and happy.

great mini vacation

My family and I had a fantastic and relaxing time at the inn. The hotel is beautiful with nicely manicured landscape, breakfast at the veranda was delicious, and great spa and golf amenities. the all ages pool was a bit crowded though but understandably so since we stayed through the July 4th weekend. Also there is no elevator to get to our room but it was a minor issue. we will definitely be back!

nice, but needs attention

Very nice lobby, restaurants, pool, spa, etc. Rooms a little tired. There was broken glass outside our room when we checked in and empty glasses in a planter for days. Water leaking down wall in the bathroom. Light bulbs out. The place is very nice and perfectly comfortable, but they need to take a little better care of it.

great place

we stayed in the rooms overlooking the golf course, a good large space with very nice diagonally placed bed and a decent balcony. the vibe of the hotel is very nice, laid back but classy. the golf course is pretty but the condition is just ok and the pace of play was horrible the day we played. the only negative was that the main restaurant is closed for renovation, but the bar and patio restaurants were great. we liked the area too, some good restaurants and nice hiking. would definitely recommend.

Good to relax

Rancho Bernardo Inn is a great place to relax for a day or two. Large rooms with great views. Very good spa. Good restaurants. Close enough to San Diego to keep you busy

Too much for a business trip

Fantastic staff, beautiful place, excellent for a relaxing meeting. We were here for an all business meeting and were not able to utilize the pool or golf for lack of time. Felt the activity fee of $20 plus 10 for self parking was unnecessary. Internet was slow.

Great deal

This was a family mini vacation over Thanksgiving. Staff was very nice and pleasant. The Concierge was very helpful to find a beach and get us down toward Mission Beach area.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

We flew into San Diego airport and proceeded to the zoo, but did not want to eat at the zoo. So we took a turn into the local golf course and ate at the club house. This was and older establishment, but the burgers were a hit with my 4 kids (10-17). And the price was right and we had a lovely view of San Diego and the ocean. Couldn't beat it for the price/view and food and service. So before you take the left for the zoo, make a right and go up to the old style clubhouse at the golf course. You won't be disappointed. My kids wanted to come back and try breakfast!
