If you are going to play golf then this is your place...if not don’t bother. Resort fee’s are added even if you don’t use anything, parking fees are added for self parking,... Cute and pretty but I only suggest for a golfer which I am not.

The location and room were beautiful. We enjoyed relaxing and cooling off at the pool for adults. The staff was very efficient, kind and cheerful.

The property was built back in the 50s but the rooms have been renovated and are up to date and very clean. Staff is friendly. Courtesy shuttle to locations within 5 miles is available. The golf was great. Wednesdays round was fast, played in 4 hrs, but the next day was a little slower, 4 1/2 to 5 hours. Course is in good shape, greens recently aerated, but still pretty fast. Pretty course. Meals and beverages are spendy, but per usual at a resort like this. We had a very nice time.

Neighborhood Inn and Spa

Pros: Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms.
Cons: Closer parking to the rooms - considering the price you have to pay to park there.
Location: Surrounded by a golf course in a residential neighborhood. Fairly close to freeway access.
We found RBI on Expedia on a busy week in SD for the TCS softball world series. The price per night was quite reasonable, but watch out for the hidden fees. Parking and Resort Fees are additional and not cheap. The Inn is surrounded by a golf course in a residential neighborhood in RB. Our room was not really close to any parking so it was a trek each time. The Inn is a little dated, but they've kept it up quite well considering.

Fabulous hotel. Great staff! Beautiful grounds. Spa pool closed early and only other pool was not heated and not very clean. Lots of leaves and dirt on ground around the pool.
