My wife and I have been coming to the Rancho Bernardo Inn for weekend escapes for years. We love this hidden gem. We finally decided to treat our adult children to an escape weekend here with us. Now they too love the place.

Would never stay there again. Need I say more. The advertise how great they are unfortunately when they proclaim how old they are they meant the furnishings and towels. A total waste of money stay at a super 8 at least there you will get some sleep and not wait 40 minutes to get checked in.

The staff is very friendly and professional. However, the quality of the room such as the bed, towels, and sheets are below average and poor. Our dining experience at their new Avant restaurant was very disappointing too. By 8:05 on a Saturday evening, Avant was sold out of their only two meat entrees (ribeye steak & filet mignon). This was...

Our room was very nice, the bed very comfortable, the shower was large and had amazing water pressure (no bath - not an issue for us, but could be for others). There was a coffee maker and a fridge - nice additions. We had a nice private patio. The grounds are large, beautiful and well maintained. Lots of fountains and...

We had a very good "Customer Service" experience, nice response from management with a few concerns we had. Great for conferences. The room we had, just needed to be deep-cleaned, and the Veranda Restaurant just needed a bit more attention to details on cleanliness. Housekeeping was great in their friendliness as well as the little cafe. What beautiful grounds and...
