My first visit to the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe was fabulous. It's a beautiful, warm and friendly place to spend the holidays. The rooms are absolutely charming and the staff was so accommodating. Such a peaceful setting with lots of beautiful surroundings for long walks and relaxing days.

pretty grounds not impressed with room

Posted Dec 5, 2016
We heard great things about this hotel. But the room they gave us was really not very good. I was very disappointed. When you looked out the balcony there was trash and trash bins. The room smelled so much like smoke it gave me a headache. Very standard. And the food was not my favorite. The staff was great and the grounds are very pretty. But I wouldn't go back.

Dear Jules, I am sorry to read you did not like your room. The inconvenience you experience has been addressed with our Housekeeping team; please accept my apologies for this as usually that particular room has a lovely view over the canyon. Many of our rooms have wood burning fire places which adds to the ambience and I am sorry to hear it gave you a headache. I would hope you give us another try in the future. Thank you for your visit and your comments. Best regards Jerome

Pros: Great place to relax alone or with company.
Cons: Not enough lighting to look in the mirror as I did my make-up. Maybe is just me.
Location: Beautiful trails, little streets to leisurely walk around.
I love it! My room was speciouos, it had an enclosed patio. I had all the amenities. The gardens are gorgeous and pool great for laps.

Relaxing resort hotel

Posted Sep 30, 2016
This is a great place to stay to relax. The rooms are very nice, the restaurant and bars are great - with excellent service. The spa is outstanding. The only weak point is housekeeping - their attention to important details is uneven. Otherwise, the Inn is a great value for a very nice place in the wonderful town of Rancho Santa Fe!

My stay was a quick overnight stay on my way to a convention in San Diego breaking up the drive from Los Angeles. The staff was very professional and quick. The hotel room was well appointed and just what an inn in Rancho Santa Fe should be. The Inn captured the environment perfectly and did so in a refined manner. I dined at Morado which had great food and wine in a perfect outdoor setting.

Old school ambiance

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: It's quiet and peaceful
Cons: Change or steam clean the carpets!
Location: Some beautiful beaches are just 4 miles away. Nice area to take a drive.
I have stayed at the Inn 3 times. This last time, I rented a garden cottage and the rug was spotted and dirty looking. It took the front desk 3 calls for housekeeping to bring some extra pillows, lotion, towels. The front desk staff at the front didn't know why the road was being blocked for 2 days right in front of the Inn.

Quaint, cozy and quiet. Great dining and close downtown. Only downfall was housekeeping failed to clean our room when requested.

Quick getaway

Posted Aug 23, 2016
Pros: Quaint and charming
Cons: The historic room needs to be updates, moe furniture added as well as carpeting or an area rug. It was very stark and cold.
Location: Beautiful area and close to all that San Diego has to offer.
The grounds are gorgeous and the staff and service top notch. We stayed in a historic room in the main building. It was very sparse with little character and warmth. The room could have used some more furniture, better A/C venting (all the air was in the useless front room) and a carpet or rug. The towels could have been larger and more plush as well. Restaurant was delicious and beautiful.
