We were disappointed in our stay at the Palms. While a beautiful setting and lobby looked impressive that's where it ended. Although the rooms were clean they were not one your want to spend any time in. Definitely in need of a face lift. The entire complex is rundown and the hottub only came on between 4:30-7:30 limitng when one... More

MJCV - Sorry to hear the hotel was a disappointment to you. Our policies which you agreed to at the time of booking clearly state there is a $20. fee for any changes or cancellations. The jacuzzi is on from 3:30 pm until 9:30 pm, the time most people seem to us the hot tub. We are green and try... More

This was our second stay and we were so happy we came back. The wifi is slow but it is free. The restaurant is delicious (not open all of the time) with excellent service- when it isn't open you can go to their other site called the Red Ocotillo which is a short drive away. Our room was very clean... More

Built in the 1950's and used by celebrities to hide from the public, this hotel is a step back in time. In fact, Borrego reminds of Palm Springs in the 50's. Not one stoplight in town and no traaffic! This boutique hotel is very close to the visitor center but just off the main road enough to enjoy the peaceful... More

We stayed in one of the casitas that open onto the poolside deck. The room was very comfortable and roomy with efficiency kitchen. The pool is so beautiful and large; the hot tub is so unique! Awesome palms and landscaping. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing place. The great meal at the restaurant was an unexpected treat.

We have enjoyed this hotel many times. Each time we like it better and better. The pool is huge and very relaxing as no children under 13 are allowed. It makes for a wonderful day of relaxing and reading quietly. We like to stay in one of the Casitas rooms, just steps from the pool. The bed is delicious, so... More

We enjoyed staying here. The huge pool was nice to have to cool off. The restaurant was an unexpected treat and very delicious. The hiking in the Palms was close-by as well. Set back in away from the main street so it was very quiet.

We came here for dinner whilst staying elsewhere. We loved the look of the hotel, and the staff are attentive. We really enjoyed our meal a lot, in what we understand is the Coyote Restaurant, but can't find it referred to that way anywhere! The initial waiter was inexperienced and had to go off to get answers to questions, and... More

We loved this place and will stay here again next time we're in Borrego Springs. The hotel is cool and quirky and totally in keeping with the vibe of this small desert town on the edge of Anza Borrego State Park. We stayed in room 5, which featured floor to ceiling windows looking out across the vast desert. The bed... More

This is a very quiet hotel tucked away in Borrego Springs. It is so quiet in fact, there is almost nobody there! If you need anything, we needed an iron, there's no way to get it until someone arrives at 10 am. Another problem is the fact that the price quoted online is not the price we were charged. We...

The best place to stay in BS although for some reason it does not show up when one searches for hotels in Borrego Springs. The rooms are clean, the pool is fabulous and the restaurant serves a wide range of food.
