This is our second stay at RBI. Charmaine Farquar, Sales Manager was our person of contact. She understood our needs and exceeded in all of our request. We had a group of 25 people to Stay and Play at the Inn. All of the rooms were great with beautiful views of the course. The Inn is conveniently close to Shopping stores and beautiful Winners. The best part of staying at RBI is the staff, from the front desk to Bell Boys, Travor was great in taking our luggage to the room and back to our car. We highly recommend this Great Stay & Play.

We have been coming to the RB Inn for many years and we love the resort. The service is always great and it’s a beautiful resort. However this time I feel I must be honest I was not completely satisfied with the room. The air conditioner was very noisy and startled me from sleep all night every time it kicked on.

We have been coming to the RB Inn for many years and we love the resort. The service is always great and it’s a beautiful resort. However this time I feel I must be honest I was not completely satisfied with the room. The air conditioner was very noisy and startled me from sleep all night every time it kicked on. We also had a foul, sewer smell coming from the bathroom when we first got back from dinner. I think it is probably time to update this room as well. Other than that, we had a great trip. The pools are beautiful and the grounds are beautiful. Read less

Our arrival was for 3:00 and we arrived after 4:00. Our room was not ready. We were given a supposed upgrade to a larger room with 2 beds, not the king we had contracted for. The room stunk like there had been a sewer back up a while ago. At a bit after 5:00 we called the front desk to say that the room was unacceptable. Our king room still… Read more
Our arrival was for 3:00 and we arrived after 4:00. Our room was not ready. We were given a supposed upgrade to a larger room with 2 beds, not the king we had contracted for. The room stunk like there had been a sewer back up a while ago. At a bit after 5:00 we called the front desk to say that the room was unacceptable. Our king room still "was not ready." We were moved to a two bed room overlooking the pool, which was luckily not noisy. Later an employee told us that this happens often. The hotel will give a reserved room to someone who wants connecting rooms. This may be a profitable short term strategy, but in the long run, it will affect ratings with Trip Advisor, Conde Nast, etc. We had asked a friend what she thought of the resort. She gave us a bad look and said it was OK. OK is not what I am sure they are looking for in their ratings. The hotel grounds and common areas were well maintained and lovely. My husband ordered onion soup at dinner. It was onion gravy - thick and pasty. I would not use it as gravy on leftover pork chops. We recommend leaving it alone. Read less

The famous Rancho Bernardo Inn and its restaurant Veranda are in a lovely setting where I have eaten many times with friends for casual listening to live music and family celebrations, as I live in the neighborhood. In anticipation of making a reservation for a birthday party I needed to ask some questions first. Called the Veranda phone # and after following all the prompts I got the message "we cannot answer the phone at this time, pls leave a message and we'll call you back" Problem is their box is full. Called the resort Operator at the front desk and spoke to Maira who said she would try to connect me with Veranda Put me on hold for about 5 minutes, then the phone went dead. Called again, someone picked up the phone then disconnected me. Called a third time and I spoke to a male who said Maira was not available. Explained the problem to him, he was polite and had many apologies but no solutions. The RB Inn would do well to revise their current system to ensure that customers are able to reach them for inquiries and/or reservations If customers are unable to easily do so upfront, they should not expect to stay in business.
