We have been visiting Escondido for over 20 years and have always had to stay in a nearby town. A few months ago I stumbled across Regina del Palazzo on the internet. I was looking for a place to stay over Memorial Day week-end. I knew after calling and speaking to Suzannah, I had found a great place to stay. When we arrived, it was better than expected. We have stayed at several different B&B's and we now have our favorite. The rooms are beautifully decorated and such comfortable beds. Suzannah and Don made us feel like family. The made to order breakfasts were fantastic!!! We even spent time in their new hot tub--so relaxing. We stayed in the main house in the Black and Gold room, but either room in the main house or the cottage would be nice. A warning, though, if you want to stay at an impersonal place, go someplace else. You are treated like family here. We can not wait to go back and visit with our new friends..
When you have guests as warm, friendly and fun as you were, we can only say, "What a Pleasure!". It is such a delight to share time and memories with such lovely people, who in a matter of a few days, feel like best friends; with stories shared and memories made. We can hardly wait to have you back in our home for more good times with good friends. Now I'm going to tempt you with some new recipes, such as Creme Brulee French Toast or maybe the Pecan Praline Pancakes. Thank you for your wonderful review.

My family has been looking for a short (one day short) vacation to get away and have found it in the Regina Del Palazzo. The place is thoughtfully decorated with Victorian area pieces and invites to you to forget the modern day. Whether one decides to spend there time indoors or outside on the patio the friendly atmosphere created by the owners Suzy and Don will relax any traveller. Suzy is an amazing cook and Don is an excellent helper, and together they take a great effort to please any picky eater who comes trough their doors. For our family they have created the most elaborate breakfast that I've seen recently. It included home-made waffles, individual omelets, hush browns, a delicious home-made fruit compote made from scratch, brioche toasts and several types of fresh berries. And of course, a great variety of different coffees and teas that are made in minutes by the Keurig machine. My family was pleasantly impressed by the welcoming accommodations and we will definitely plan to come back for a longer stay.
What a gracious family! We so enjoyed filling our home with such delightful and thoughtful people. They had wonderful stories to share with us about their family and travels. I had a ball creating meals they thoroughly enjoyed. We have been blessed with wonderful guests and look forward to their return visit and more stories. My new ovens are in so the menu is evolving in creativity. Look out for my Creme Brulee French Toast, even better than the waffles and blackberry compote! Come on Back!

Very charming Victorian Home. Lovely well decorated bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Owners are friendly, have suggestions for sight seeing, and provide what ever assistance I needed for my stay. Food was well prepared and tailored to my taste. Lovely sitting room, porch and patio areas available. There is also a separate guest house providing even more privacy.

5 stars to Suzy & Don, the gracious new owners of Regina Del Palazzo. I thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit to their B&B and felt pampered as they catered to my every need. Suzy is an excellent cook and happily accommodated my food preferences. Delicious breakfasts included omelets, waffles, home-made granola, fruit, juice and muffins. Their Keurig coffee maker was fun to use to make an individual cup of coffee whenever I wanted. Tea & hot chocolate were also available and they were the perfect accompaniment to the plate of cookies Suzy set out each afternoon. The B&B is filled with antiques & located in a beautifully restored home built in 1888 that's listed on the historic register. It's cozy, comfortable, clean and quiet. The neighborhood includes many other historic homes and was a great place to take my early morning walks. I look forward to returning to Regina Del Palazzo on my next visit to Escondido and soaking in the hot tub they plan to install.
