I decided to try a 2 night Staycation at The Rancho Bernardo Inn as I have been caring for my mom full time and needed some R&R. Sadly, it needs a serious cleaning and facelift and is not worth the money they charge per night. Their restaurants & room service are also seriously lacking.

I decided to try a 2 night Staycation at The Rancho Bernardo Inn as I have been caring for my mom full time and needed some R&R. Sadly, it needs a serious cleaning and facelift and is not worth the money they charge per night. Their restaurants & room service are also seriously lacking. I sat at the Veranda one afternoon during a non-busy time for over 15 minutes, when no one came by with water or even to say hello, I requested a server from the hostess. Food was mediocre and way over priced. Next night I decided to try room service, but the food NEVER came. So I purchased a bag of chips & a Kind bar from the front desk. Next day I did not even attempt eating at the Inn, but tried to order dessert off room service later that night. This time it was delivered, but not what I had even ordered! It appears they are understaffed, undertrained, and most likely underpaid. The only positive to the 2 night stay were the 2 spa treatments I had scheduled- a facial and a massage. Both treatments and therapists were wonderful. However, half of the lockers did not latch or work properly and the robe I was given had a giant tear in the back. All of the robes I saw people in very frayed & worn. This resort is run down in many places, had terrible food service and is NOT worth the money. Read less

We are here for a 10 day visit as part of a large group. Everything has been truly spectacular from the grounds of the resort to the client service. The resort has stunning grounds Full of beautiful flowers. My husband enjoyed two rounds of golf on the beautiful course. Every member of the staff from the waitstaff to the pool attendants to the shuttle drivers is so friendly and nothing seems too much to ask. I want to make a special mention of hotel General Manager Mr. Lemmon and Director of Rooms Brian who went truly above and beyond to accommodate a request from us. We have stayed at many luxury resorts and Mr. Lemmon, Brian and their teams live up to the standards of exceptional client service. We will certainly be returning. Read less

What a place! Could not fault Rancho Bernardo Inn at all. I had a great stay in March 2022. The Inn itself and the grounds, pools etc are beautiful. It was such a relaxing vacation I really didn’t want to come home. I ate in the Veranda restaurant a few times and it was always excellent, especially the sprouts.

What a place! Could not fault Rancho Bernardo Inn at all. I had a great stay in March 2022. The Inn itself and the grounds, pools etc are beautiful. It was such a relaxing vacation I really didn’t want to come home. I ate in the Veranda restaurant a few times and it was always excellent, especially the sprouts. The tasting menu with accompanying wine in Avant was absolutely first class. Well worth going for the experience. The service though was the thing that separated this hotel from others. The staff were all so friendly, they can’t do enough to make your stay truly special. Thanks everyone. I will definitely be back next year. Read less

Great town! Lots to do. Can be expensive if you eat at the touristy places. But the food was fresh and fantastic! If you’re here for business, definitely stay where you can walk around because Uber and Lyft can get pricey. If you’re here for a vacation, I would recommend staying around where you’ll spend the most time. I would definitely recommend… Read more

If you’re here for a vacation, I would recommend staying around where you’ll spend the most time. I would definitely recommend La Jolla. Get to know the bus lines - they were not crowded at all and were a cheap way to get from the convention center area to La Jolla, Oldtown, etc. Read less

Our visit to Rancho Bernardo Inn was not only a very successful business meeting, but a true hospitality experience. All employees that we engaged were warm, friendly, and had a genuine desire to assist with any need. I look forward to returning many times in the future with my wife and for business.
