Great staff, great hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Loved my stay here for a work conference. Grounds are lovely, staff knowledgeable and keen to help. Room was very nice with fireplace although I didn’t test it. Bathroom gorgeous! Food was good but not great. I would love to go back.

Rustic Cabin Feel
Reviewed 1 month ago

We were happy to discover this true gem! Only 25 minutes from San Diego Airport. We stayed in room 2. The only reason I mention it is the walls are thin and the floors creak. It felt like we were staying in a luxurious cabin😄. Always a fire going in the lobby and in the restaurant. Food here is Outstanding. Service is Outstanding. Spa is Outstanding.

Incredible privacy with courtyard hot tub
Reviewed 4 months ago

the inn provided us with an upgrade because the trip was a Honey Moon. Champagne and chocolates were there on arrival, services were stellar and the grounds were impeccable. when we extended our stay an extra day the staff found a suitable room because ours was already booked, moved us and made sure we were comfortable

Old world charm, 5 star service
Reviewed 4 months ago

The inn at Rancho Santa Fe combines old world charm with 5 star service. The little touches really help it stand out. From the heated floors in the bathroom to the wood fire place in each cottage, this hotel helps melt all your stress away.

I will definitely be back!!!

Disappointing experience for the supposed level
Reviewed 4 months ago

I stayed at here for a romantic overnight on Marriott points (I am a Platinum Premier). Given that it is level 6 (the second highest Marriott/Starwood level), and quite expensive if you pay, I expected a high quality experience consistent with stays I've had at other hotels of this level (for example level 6, the US Grant and beautiful and high quality experience. If this was a Fairfield Inn, I would give it a good review, but this is a supposedly luxury (and expensive resort): Areas that made this not great for the level:
The hotel is kind of tired, and seems to be in need of upgrading
The room was certainly nothing special
The bed in the room was adequate, but certainly not luxury
The pillow was a polyester fill of the type you can buy at Bed Bath and Beyond for $15; certainly not luxury.
There was a thermostat on the wall, but it didn't do anything; purely decorative. When we checked, we needed to adjust the old fashioned floor level, loud wall unit without specific temperature settings.
There was a fireplace in the room, but clearly they discouraged its use; there was a sign to open the windows if you were going to use, and no matches were provide. A fireplace should be adequately vented; we didn't take the chance (plus we had no matches).
The wifi didn't work.
As a Platinum Premier I got a coupon that said "free breakfast". Not so much. When we went to the restaurant, we were told it was a free continental breakfast (which the coupon didn't say), or we could get an $18 credit. For two we ordered two standard entrees, bacon and coffee, and at resort prices, my bill we $36 before tip for my "free breakfast".

Certainly Rancho Santa Fe is a beautiful area and the resort is spread out over some very expensive land, which may justify the price, but if you're looking for a luxury resort experience, look elsewhere.
