How it Ranks: Rancho Bernardo Inn ranks #6 out of 664 San Diego Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in San Diego.

Our Take: When you see the word "inn" you might conjure up images of floral wallpaper and lace doilies but not here. Rancho Bernardo Inn is more resort than it is bed and breakfast with its 18-hole championship golf course, full-service spa and four on-site eateries. Despite being a good 30-minute drive from San Diego proper and about 20 miles from the beaches at La Jolla or Del Mar, guests enjoy Rancho Bernardo's setting. The property's 287 guest rooms and suites all offer views of the property gardens from private patios; they also come dressed up custom artwork, flat-screen TVs and, in some cases, fireplaces. Just be aware that Rancho Bernardo charges a $19-per-night resort fee to cover parking, transportation (within 5 miles of the resort), pool and fitness center access and Internet connection, among other amenities.
