... what we had thought would be a 4-5 hour trip ended up being 6 hours - but we got our money's worth!
So then we had to find our hotel. We'd had an airbnb booked, but she double booked and we had to find a hotel for the first night. With the GPS, it wasn't hard to find, and once we dumped our bags, the front desk told us there was a shopping mall about a 15 min walk away. So since it was too late really to go into town ...
... royalty they had in the stand today, because they had an awesome win after having to play 2 extra innings to decide the winner. Anyone that told us the Americans make big meals didn't lie either. Andrew came back to our seats with 3 individual serves of pizza. We opened the box to find 1 piece in each box, but it was no ordinary piece of pizza. It was about the same size as 1/8th of a family pizza. It was massive! Needless to say 3 pieces between 4 of us was ample.
... I'll let you know when she finally gets it without prompting.
Somehow we made it out of LA after lots of screaming, shouting and ooh-ing at the scenery, and to the first stop on the road, Laguna Beach. Home of the wealthy and beautiful and immortalised in some awful reality shows, Laguna is saturated with expensive shops and restaurants and boasts a beautiful white-sand beach. We spent a nice couple of hours on the beach eating our packed lunch and ...
... Grill which was right next to the fire station. After the Firehouse we went to this new, custom, build your own ice cream sandwich place called Baked Bear. I got brownies and mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich. It was really good. When we got back to the hotel everyone was pooped. We took showers and eventually fell asleep. I couldn't wait to see what surprises would come tomorrow. I hoped the hot air balloon ride was as good as my mom said it would be. Written by ...
Today we left Las Vegas and headed down to San Diego on the way we stopped of at iHop for breakfast and I got two pancakes with bacon and scrambled eggs. The drive today was the longest drive of the trip and we left at around 9am and didn't arrive till nearly 7pm in San Diego. Once we set up tents and ate dinner it was getting late so we just lit a campfire and sat around chatting for a while before heading to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel San Diego-Rancho Bernardo
We recently took a weekend trip to San Diego with friends. At first we were disappointed that we weren't able to get lodgings closer to the coast but as soon as we got to the hotel we were quite pleased with our choice. The girls at the desk were wonderfully helpful & pleasant. The room was clean and large even though it wasn't as nicely appointed as some other Radissons we have stayed at. We immediately went to the pool. The pool area was beautifully landscaped area with great wooden deck chairs, tables & chaises and nice thick towels. The desk suggested a fabulous Italian restaurant for dinner....we couldn't have done better! The next morning the drive into San Diego wasn't bad at all! Saturday night we decided to eat at the hotel's grill. We weren't thrilled at the prospect due to past experience with hotel restaurants but we were quite exhausted from our day frollicking in the sun so we decided to just eat there anyway. Amazingly, we were all pleased with our dinners. And they even let us use the drink coupons we got at check-in even though we thought they weren't good on the weekend. The whole experience was really quite a joy.
Stayed in Mid July 05 on business.
Really enjoyed our stay!!
We were very pleased with our stay at the Radisson Suite Hotel Rancho Bernardo. We recently stayed for three nights. The location was nice as it was away from the city but close enough to be able to be anywhere in about 20 minutes or less. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed having a separate seating area and TV that spun to face the bed or the seating area. The hotel offered a free breakfast at the restaurant on property.. which was a nice feature but.. the food wasn't very good. Overall.. we really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
Great place - radisson san bernardo
Everything is great about this hotel. Breakfast was included, free drink, and the staff was great. The room was very clean. Can't wait to go back.
Great Place To Stay!
Very nice property away from the traffic of San Diego yet very conveniently located. The room and pool area were immaculate and the service was wonderful. Very nice buffet included in our room price of $109 (Quest discount program rate) and even included a free drink in the evening. Adequate shower and comfortable bed. Would definitely recommend staying here.
Loved Radisson Suites!
The Radisson Suites was a great hotel. I just got back from a three night stay and I couldn't have been more pleased. The room was large and kept very clean, the restaurant was comfortable and had good food. But, the best part of my stay at Radisson Suites was the customer service. It was five star service from start to finish. Every employee I came in contact with was personable and helpful beyond belief. I usually stay in fancier hotels; I chose this hotel because it was close to my niece. I have never encountered service of this quality anywhere. I couldn't have been more pleased.
Good value for the money
Close enough to San Diego to be downtown in under 20 minutes, but its suburban setting meant better prices at local restaurants and no tourist traps, plus the pool wasn't crowded. The room was comfortable and had a microwave and wet bar; I was disappointed that the rate did not include a fridge, but one can be rented from the front desk. One caution: the hotel's brochure says the breakfast buffet is complimentary, but they tried charging $9.95 per person. There's better food for less money at area eateries.
Good Value, Nice Room
A clean and comfortable room at a nice price. During one of the busiest tourist weekends in San Diego where average hotels charged rates nearing $400, our family of four stayed for $139/night. This included complimentary buffet breakfast (very good) and a $25 gift certificate at the restaurant's hotel--parking is also free. The pool and hot tub area are well maintained like the rooms. The only drawbacks are the 25 minute drive to downtown SD which can take longer b/c of traffic and no fridge in the room. We would certainly stay there again.
We arrived at The Radisson around 3PM. Check-in was easy and our room and location were perfect. The non-smoking room had a nice sitting area with a pull out sofa our 5 year old used. We chose the "safari" package for $159. This included 2 adult tickets to Wild Animal Park (only 10-15 minutes away), and a lovely breakfast spread including scrambled eggs, biscuits, toasts and bagels, juices, fresh fruit and so on. We found our beds to be very comfy and overall really enjoyed our stay here. We were only 25 miles or so to San Diego's hotel circle. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Great value and stay for families. The exercise room was nice as well. It had a TV, water fountain and fans...plus std work out equipment. This was not a super deluxe hotel but we were very satisfied with the stay and especially the value. Beautiful surroundings and SAFE area. We would definately stay again. Only possible gripe was pool was closed for cement work drying...that was okay by us because it was quite cool to go swimming anyway.
We purchased one night for $89 through the Radisson website, which is an excellent price for what we got. At our check in, we received a coupon for two complimentry drinks at the bar between 5-10pm. We also received a free parking permit during our stay. The parking is located around the hotel, so it provides convenient access to your room. The rooms are set up like a motel, with the entry on the outside of the building.
