I almost gave all 'excellent' ratings. I had one encounter with the spa hostess and a housekeeping staffer that dropped my overall rating. Short spa summary: I went in to ask her for a day pass, that I wasn’t interested in any treatments. I just wanted to use the pool. She stated no day pass available on Sundays, the only way to use the pool was to get a treatment. So I said ok, I’ll get a treatment (so I could use the pool). She said she’s all out of treatment appointments today. In the hotel info packet they give you *doesn't say anything about different hours on Sunday. Can you understand why anyone would be annoyed? Lead with that information next time, instead of making go through that whole conversation and making me feel unwelcome. Most spas have similar rules but it's all about how the human behind the desk handles the problem.

Used to be a great hotel and golf course but has fallen on hard times. Golf course in terrible shape. Air conditioning not functioning, given a fan that barely made room inhabitable.

This property was not even close to being worth the price. Issues were as follows: 1. Poor lighting very difficult to find the room at night. 2. Outside porch light not working. 3. No soap in the room. 4. There was garbage from the previous customer. 5. AC did not work. 6. Restaurant and room service close at 9:30. 7. No ice machine. When staff took me to find ice machine there was a dumpster in front and the machine was broken. 8. Furniture and decor was dated. 9. Our building was under construction and had equipment and exposed electrical wires. 10. Entry to building had two large potted plants in front but a staff member suggested we use that entrance as it was a shortcut. 11. Upon check in we were offered an upgrade for $50/night. At the price of the room we decided that wouldn't be necessary. In hindsight, the property should have upgraded us at no charge. Good things: 1. We were able to make the room service cut-off and the food was tasty. 2. When requested the front dest did provide us a razor. 3. The property waived parking and resort fees upon request. Again, at the price of the room, these should be included. Upon checking out, I requested to have one of the nights charges waived as the quality of the room did not warrant the cost of the stay. The hotel indicated that if Expedia approved they would refund one night. Photos can be made available upon request.

Stayed for five nights at the Rancho Bernardo Inn for a family wedding event. The staff were fantastic in just about all aspects... very professional and friendly. And responsive. The actual room I stayed in was nice, but was quite dated. Needs renovation, and there were signs in the lobby area announcing that management is indeed initiating a renovation project of the rooms, which will take place in stages. I will look forward to staying in a new room on my next visit. Housekeeping service is offered only after the third night, but it was possible to order fresh towels. The restaurants had excellent food and very good service. Regretably, the small on-site store just off the lobby (selling coffee, snacks, and light take-away meals) closed each day in the early afternoon. Overall, a nice getaway. And the on-site golf course makes it a dream for golfers...
