We had a great stay! the hotel was quiet, clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We ate dinner and breakfast at the Veranda which was delicious. The only improvement I would say would be the adult pool is a little outdated and could use a facelift .

Stayed here for three nights while seeing the sights in and near San Diego. The location just off I15 makes reaching San Diego a snap. The property is well kept and welcoming. Mature vegetation and manicured grounds provide a pleasant atmosphere and enhanced sense of privacy. Our room was excellent with comfortable bed, plenty of space, no shortage of electrical...

My husband and I just spent 4 days at the RB Inn. There were some very nice things about the property and then some very big disappointments. It is so beautiful and seemingly peaceful but unfortunately there are some things that just might make us skip this resort in the future. I could give many details and examples but I...

Dear Holly, the Rancho Bernardo Inn is a charming resort and well maintained by our grounds keepers. We are happy that you chose us for your staycation. The picture you posted involves a conference we had in-house during your stay and the toilet was one of their props for their conference. Although we do our best to comply with a...

Just returned from San Diego golfing trip. The course at Rancho Bernardo is OK. The greens are very good. The hotel has a ranch type feel which fits it's name. We booked on Expedia which was a nightmare to amend bookings but that's another story. I was annoyed to find that having thought I'd paid in full on Expedia there...

We chose RB Inn for a relaxing close to home getaway to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Amy at the front desk ... She was very personable and helpful and later sent a personal note, bottle of champagne and strawberries as an anniversary gift. We love the Inns beautiful grounds and comfortable rooms but...

Overall, had a pleasant stay. Great room overlooking the golf course. Food at Avant was excellent! Friendly staff everywhere! Needs some minor freshening up around the property (carpeting, wood fixtures, paint, etc.), but overall very presentable. Location is about 30 mins from downtown San Diego by freeway (with light/moderate traffic), and local food/entertainment services require a car or spendy cab/Uber...

Lots of ants "because it's hot". I booked this for our wedding night and it was a hot day. We opened the bathroom to find a trail of ants. We called the front desk and offered to send someone in the morning, and surprise no one ever came. That night we got continually bitten by ants and by morning the...

The staff wasn't very friendly. Made me feel like they were doing me a favor by letting me stay there. My room was behind some dumpsters and it was noisy when staff was taking garbage out. Um, hello. I paid a premium price for that room.

My husband and I had a weekend stay with our two kids. We had a good room rate and looked forward to staying here (it was our first time, and probably our last). First, the good.

Dear dnpsmommy, we certainly appreciate your kind comments on the ambiance of our property and Chris who assisted you with the charging errors.

My room was broken into while I was at the workout room. The staff had no explanation, and I felt not safe to stay in the room thereafter. It is very discomforting when you know someone look through your staff in a hotel.
