Brunch at The Inn
Reviewed 1 day ago

We have been sharing brunch at The Inn for the past 16 years. We always choose a warm, sunny day which isn't hard to do here in San Diego. This is because our favorite dining is out on the generous patio area where one can comfortably sit and overlook the large expanse of grassy knolls and towering trees. There are flowers blooming all times of the year as well. It is a quiet space and extremely peaceful. We order brunch and the menu has many delicious options. I'm particularly fond of the Eggs Benedict. While the atmosphere is beautiful the service is impeccable. I highly recommend the experience of brunch at The Inn. Oh, and be sure to take your time!

The hidden Gem that needs to be polished!

This is one of finest locations in Southern California, time has taken a toll on its beauty and elegance.
The building is falling apart, the bungalows are not fit habitation with broken shower heads, and 3rd class kitchens, adding a 50” TV to every room doesn’t hide the aging structures.

The restaurant needs better staff management so the right hand recognizes what the left one is doing. The management staff are exceptional and they will take care of you come what may.

I don’t want to be mean, but a hundred year old building is not a mystery, they exist all over the world but they’re well maintained and kept up to the luxury standards visitors come to expect.

Quaint, not Stunning
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The property is very unique and certainly has a lot of historical value, but a lot of the property doesn't quite live up to the precedent set. For starters, a lot of the property looks a lot more humble in person than it does in the photos, making it look a lot less like elegant and charming and a lot more along the lines of dated. The property is built on some very awkward landscape which makes it a bit of a labyrinth to get around being there's a lot of sharp slopes and not a ton of signage either to point you in the right direction. In addition to the property being historical, it also unfortunately means the soundproofing is not great. If there's an adjacent room you will hear (and sometimes even feel) every time a door shuts, in addition to very loud-and-clear conversations of any guests who are passing by your room. This makes a would-be quiet couple's getaway weekend a lot less quiet. Their housekeeping does do a very good job though, and the room was very clean, however check-in is at 4PM which is a lot later than most hotels.The ladies at the front desk were very nice and hospitable, but not so much for the rest of the staff we encountered in the restaurant, bar, and valet. Lastly the property is a lot more isolated than originally thought even from looking at the GPS maps before we arrived. The hotel is situated deep in the hills which requires use of narrow-winding roads to reach, which wouldn't really be a problem, but here's the honest truth: the hotel pool and the old town adjacent to the hotel are cute, but really nothing fabulous that are going to keep you around, which means you are going to be using those narrow, winding roads a lot more than you thought you'd like. The property is certainly unique, but the charm is just a lot more shallow than I thought. I don't believe I'd recommend this hotel.

May Wedding

My son and daughter in law were married at the Inn last week! It was a beautiful and perfect venue. Working with Rebecca was wonderful, she was quick to respond to any concerns with me, the bride and our wedding planner.
Rebecca was there for our event and along with Claude the Captain were very helpful and with a smile too! It was a lovely evening and I am very grateful to all!

For a place to stay near San Diego, love this place.

Very private and very lovely. There is nothing not to like about this hotel. Overall, I think we are an easy family to please within the world of hospitality. Our needs: make sure the room is clean, make sure the beds are great and most importantly, make sure your staff is great. The inn at Rancho Santa Fe hits all of our needs straight on.
