5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Our stay here was a perfect relaxing stay at the end of our family trip to California. Made special by beautiful setting and friendly staff. Food is excellent esp good value for kids. Kids pool area has table tennis, crazy golf and Fuseball table.

Beautiful grounds, awesome kids activities. A little ways from SD Zoo, Seaworld, Legoland but worth the drive. Close to Safari Park. Warning...if you come after dark...rooms can be difficult to find. Signage improved but no room numbers.

Room Tip: Some rooms require a lot of stair climbing/incline so if you have issues going up/down, make sure to...

We all loved the quaint Rancho Bernardo Inn for our Girls trip to celebrate my sisters birthday. We started our first day with the Fabulous Spa and the Spa pool. The service was out of this world and the food was so delicious. We all had several appitizers and our main courses and wine and everything was so incredible. The next day back to the Spa for massages and pool time and great food and service. We can't wait for the next time to enjoy this fabulous property.

Room Tip: The room facing the golf course are out of this world but you can't go wrong with any of these r...

We arrived with a group of 36 to play golf, eat dinner, and have some fun. This place did not disappoint. I highly recommend staying with the JC Properties Hotels as they do a fantastic job. We will definetly return to RBI in the future. We also recommend The Temecla Creek Inn for a stay and play. My group has been going there for the past several years in December and it is one of our favorites!!!

If you're looking for a hideaway in San Diego, RB Inn is nice and quaint. If you're looking for attentive staff who will accommodate you, go to a more service oriented place. This is for the atmosphere

While we did have a small wait at check in, the property and the people were all incredibly nice and friendly. Great prices on site and great value overall. Reminded me of a mini-Four Seasons Santa Barbara without the overpriced atmosphere.
