While I didn't get to stay at the Inn (next visit I will) I can tell you that the food was exceptional. It had been several years since I last dined there and while good I don't recall it being as memorable as this visit. The salad (Arugula) was excellent, sampled several appetizers that were all very tasty and well presented but it was the steak that most impressed me. You have to try their "steak au poivre". Well done Inn- and thanks to Morgan for taking a personal interest during our visit. See you in September.

We found Inn at Rancho Santa Fe on a fluke! But we are so grateful we did. The desk staff were delightfully pleasant, welcoming, and conversational without any air of snobbiness. The little cottage was quaintly appointed in authentic decor and furniture. If you don't need a TV and tons amenities (like in room refrigerator) you can really enjoy the ambiance of the whole villa and surrounding town. This place and the surrounding town was a little magical and extraordinary. Lots of history here, both architectural and in the long list of famed individuals who frequented the hunt club. Highly recommend.

This is a fabulous place to stay outside of San Diego. We went there for a family wedding. Everything about this place - the food, drinks, setting, rooms, weather! -- was just perfect. Very comfortable and relaxing.

Like some other reviewer's that visited at the same time we did in early May, I could not be more disappointed in this place. We used to live in the area and loved to come here for a quiet getaway. We moved away and came back for the first time in years this past weekend and it was not a good experience. When I booked the rooms I was so happy to see The Inn is now a part of SPG. Being a platinum level, it is customary to upgrade the room and provide extra benefits such as breakfast. We booked the day of arrival in the morning for a Saturday night stay. I could see online the hotel had many rooms available, including suites. I also called central reservations to verify the hotel was not close to being sold out because we had other options for hotels and I didn't want to get stuck in a basic room or bombarded by weddings who would take over this small, boutique inn. Central reservations confirmed there were plenty of rooms available, including several suites and they said they would make a note in the record to make sure we would be upgraded based on platinum status. This was about 10 AM and we were planning to arrive that afternoon around 3pm. I reserved 2 rooms for our family. So here is where the events took a major downward spiral... We didn't arrive at the hotel until 3:45 PM and guarantee check-in is at 4 PM. when we pulled up, this beautiful little inn had been taken over by what appeared to be a fairly sizable wedding party. You could hardly recognize where the common area is where because they were just wedding party folks everywhere. We made it to the check-in area where we were greeted by a frustrated and unfriendly lady named Charmaine. She told us neither of our rooms was ready and housekeeping was still working on them. What? Are you kidding? Guaranteed check-in was minutes away and they were still cleaning rooms? And let her know this was unacceptable. Then, I asked her to confirm we were upgraded to suites. She fumbled and stumbled a bit and you could tell she wasn't telling the truth. She began rambling on how the hotel is sold out. I explained to her it was not sold out that morning and I even spoke to people reservations that confirmed there are plenty of rooms and suites available. She told us they had had a bunch of people come in last minute that have booked the hotel. Really? What a joke. This never happens. Even for wedding parties. I felt like I was completely being lied to. Right in front of her I went back online to look at availability and sure and off there were plenty of rooms available. This confirmed I was being lied to. Finally, I got her to halfway admit the problem was not the hotels capacity, but rather they didn't have enough people in housekeeping to clean the rooms and they had a large wedding who had just finished the night before and they extended late check out times that were un-authorized. Then, they had a new wedding check in. The hotel was in complete chaos and it was clear it was not being well managed. Finally, another lady from behind the front desk came over and apologized profusely and was kind and accommodating. She suggested we go grab a late lunch and some drinks in the bar and she will take care of the tab while we waited for the rooms to be ready. She said she would do it she could to make sure we had the larger suites but she just wasn't sure what would be feasible this late in the day given the circumstances. Almost an hour went by before we got the call the rooms were ready. The rude lady at the front, Charmaine said we had a king and queen room. I reminded her we do not want a queen room, we want a king and a suite. She told me the king was a suite. So now we are waiting longer for the second room which needed to be a king bed and a queen. Finally, both rooms were ready and we picked up the keys. I asked what we should do with the restaurant tab that we had been accumulating for the prior hour as we waited. I was told to charge it to the room and they will take care of it upon checkout. So we arrive at the "suite" she is the farthest thing from a suite. It was just a bed in a room, no sitting area, no separate room. Long story short, we checked the website and realized it was just a deluxe room and it was not a suite. Again, we had been lied to. The other room was essentially the same thing. This point, we are tired and we are short on time so there was no energy or time left to argue with them. I did request to speak with a manager from the room phone and I was told there was no manager available except the restaurant manager which would've been useless. Very strange the hotel so busy and I don't even have a real manager on duty. I asked for the general manager to call me. A bit later, the gentleman did call me and said he was the general manager. He was very nice but just said there was nothing more they can do at this point because it was getting late in the day and there were no more resources available to clean rooms or make switches. Sounded like they were very short on housekeeping and people at the front desk may have upgraded wedding patrons earlier in the day instead of loyal platinum guests like us. I really wouldn't care except just that morning we had been told something entirely different, then the hotel staff lied about it. It was during this conversation I learned they had only been part of SPG for several days. Clearly, they need to work out a lot of problems or else they are going to give SPG a bad name. It was tight in the room that night and my children ended up sleeping on the floor. The rooms themselves were OK, a bit dated, but acceptable for a boutique property like this. They were all tiled so the room floor surface was very cold and the rooms lacked warmth and charm. The next morning we were getting ready to leave a check out and the food and beverage tab from the day before was on our bill. I had to explain everything to the new person at the front desk who finally took care of it but it took a little explanation which should not have been required. It wasn't until checkout I was advised we could have breakfast as part of my platinum benefit. I asked the person at the front desk to clarify what was included. He advised me we would receive a $30 per person per room the credit, total $120. Based on this, we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant versus go somewhere else. When the check came, I gave her the coupon I had been given from the front desk person who told me we had $120 credit. The restaurant manager said it was not valid and we could only use the coupons for a continental breakfast and not apply the same value to anything else. I had to argue with her and then she said she would give us only $60 credit. I told her I wasn't paying anything additional and only the difference above $120. She continued to argue this with me at which required me to go back to the front desk. When I arrived, the person who was there previously that communicated we had $120 credit, was no longer there. At this point, the general manager was there, the same gentleman I had spoken to previously by telephone the day prior. He apologize for the confusion and said he would take care of the entire restaurant bill. This was definitely a very nice gesture because the total bill was around $200. We were more than willing to pay the difference, but he took care of everything. We did tip the server very nicely. It was just unfortunate we had a bad experience here because this used to be such a great place. I hope they will get back on track and it will be even better now they are part SPG. Until then, I will probably not be back. They need some time to train their staff and get organized. Or importantly, if you were coming here for anything besides a wedding, I highly recommend not visiting unless you can 100% confirm they are not having a wedding event. Weddings will come in and take over the entire venue and they treat the rest of the guests like second-class citizens. This is such a mistake because wedding guests probably only come here once and many are from out of town. It is people like us who can come on a regular basis as a getaway, but we will not be back because they do not value such patronage.
