How it Ranks: Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa ranks #2 out of 5574 California Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: About a 30-minute drive north of San Diego, Rancho Valencia is a little off the beaten path. But that's why people love it. Perhaps best seen in the gardens overlooking the tennis courts, the grounds of this Relais & Châteaux property brim with carefully manicured greenery. And visitors say that staff members treat their guests with the utmost respect. Guest rooms here exude a Mediterranean ambiance with hacienda-style architecture, hardwood furnishings and colorful design accents, as well as deep soaking tubs and private balconies or patios. For pampering, Rancho Valencia's spa offers indulgences like a herb-infused body wraps and a variety of massage therapies. The delicious cuisine served at the on-site Veladora restaurant complements the serene environment.
