We found an oasis of tranquility and a haven from the blazing summer sun... Our 4th of July wedding anniversary always brings an anxious expectation of quiet celebration, and we have found the perfect place! Kaye welcomed us graciously and Luisa's creations enhanced our mornings... We long for the magnificent sunset we experienced in this desert sanctuary, and will return... More

Good breakfast, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, well maintained grounds. Central to Anza Borrego State Park and surrounding areas. All in all, a great desert getaway. Try to visit within the peak season, because dining options in Borrego Valley are limited in the summer months. Also, the driveway into the inn is a little tricky to find from the main road.

Thank you for visiting us and for taking the time to post your review. We're happy you found tranquility here with us out here in the middle of nowhere -- we try to keep things friendly and simple. And thanks for noting our low-key approach to the entry drive. It's our nod to subtlety! We appreciate that you stayed with... More

A piece of paradise! Best part of our trip. Peaceful, relaxing, naturally beautiful. The only sounds are the birds. Enjoyed sitting in the hot tub under the stars. Magical. Breakfasts were a delight. The corner room was bright and private.

I joined TripAdvisor just so I could write a review of this magical place. I work in the hospitality industry ... fun fact: most people who work in the hospitality industry have a love-hate relationship with this website. Mostly hate. But I will contribute my two cents because TripAdvisor members deserve to know how amazing Borrego Valley Inn truly is.... More

The Borrego Valley Inn is our oasis in the desert. Once a year we always look forward to our stay there. The welcome is always warm and the quiet setting so inviting, it's hard to leave to get out to see the breathtaking scenery. Don't miss the great hiking in the area for all levels.

How nice of you to visit again and take the time to post a review. We're pleased you find the Inn an oasis and the quiet setting appealing. Like you, many guests report that they don't want to leave the property, and some arrive and don't budge, preferring much needed R&R to activity, especially in the warmer months. Even with... More

Over the last 12 years we have visited the Anza Borrego desert four times (from the UK) and we just keep coming back to the Borrego Valley Inn. It's the only place I know where, in the evening, you can go out of the back door of your room and be standing IN the desert within a few steps, among... More

One of my favorite getaway spots. Gwen, Rich, Louisa and Francisco always accommodating as ever and the room and property are immaculate. Beautiful! Thanks for always making my birthday weekend a special one. Love the new fence around the back pool!

Thanks so much for coming back and considering the Inn the "icing on the cake" of the magnificent Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We truly understand about the "having to leave" part, too.

This is a great little place to decompress. Enjoy the included breakfast everyday. I have stayed in several different rooms and have my favorites. I recommend trying a few different rooms to find what suits you.

"Decompress" is the magic word, and we're pleased you choose the Inn for your "re-set" from a busy life. Thanks for taking the time for your post and for your advice about rooms.

My husband and I spent three nights at BVI in February. It was our fifth visit from the UK.
