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.

expensive... nice amenities, but stay eleswhere

Pros: Free Internet, spa
Cons: Noisy, no free breakfast, dirty air filter, expensive
A big thumbs up to the website designers for this resort. the photographs and the webpage looked amazing. we chose this resort for the golf course and spa on site, and the resort appeared to be modern and beautiful. When we showed up, I was quite surprised... this resort is not modern, but more "rustic charming" almost log-cabin looking on the inside, which is nice, but was not expected. however, the room was updated, and our patio was nice as well. The staff were great, and the food was great... but for the price we were paying I would expect more. Our room air filter was filthy, and all four of us left with sore throats. There is no free breakfast or beverages. The boys enjoyed the golf course, and the ladies went to the spa for the day. the Spa was the highlight... amazing gardens and privacy... i would go back just for the spa, and stay elsewhere.
